Every Summer we receive quite a few calls from worried parents whose teenage daughters just started their period and now they do not know what to do – should they reschedule their holidays, or should they present them with tampons and menstrual cups? Should they simply tell them to pack extra tampons, throw on a pair of swimwear, and despite the gorgeous weather watch their daughters suspiciously tell everyone “I just don’t feel like swimming today”?
Once in a while we even get a dad calling in his daughter’s name saying that she will not, under any circumstance, put anything into her body as it will “take her virginity” – such a persistent myth deserves a blog post of its own so I will not dwell on it any further here. Would you like the next newsletter to talk about that? Do let us know.
Got it, no menstrual cups then. Luckily, we just might have an alternative that will satisfy everybody!
I know, I know – it sounds odd when underpants are introduced as an alternative – the name itself implies that they are supposed to be worn under something. But just hear me out on this one.
Period scrundies Emilla are nothing like the adult diapers you’re probably imagining right now. They feel just like normal underwear; the only difference you might notice is a leak-proof layer as well as a soaker pad sewn inside. Their snug and comfy fit is perfect for when you are bloated or having cramps and not to mention, they are washable and reusable, making them the perfect eco-friendly alternative to disposable sanitary products.
They come in different fun designs that will definitely put a smile on your face. You might not be able to swim in them for hours on end, but they will definitely protect you if you decide to go for a quick dip in the ocean. The only question left now is – what top will you wear to match your period panties?
