There are more and more ways that the menstrual period is being made less inconvenient. Years ago, the options were limited and inefficient; now, people who have a menstrual cycle have more options to find what suits them.


Admittedly, the monthly visit from Aunt Flo hasn't stopped us from enjoying a good summer's swim since menstrual cups, discs, and tampons. However, who doesn't love having options to pick and choose what works best for them?

Cue period swimwear! The leak-proof swimwear alternative allows for extra protection and peace of mind. It works like period underwear by absorbing menstrual fluid and protect against leakage. One may use it as an extra layer while using their usual menstrual product for swimming.



Modibodi has recently made a move to increased sustainability in its offerings, including in swimwear. Admittedly, their offerings aren't expansive; however, they are effective.

Their swimsuits integrate three layers of protection that work to stop leakage, absorb and lock in menstrual fluid. Additionally, the inner layer works to keep you feeling fresh by fights bacteria and prevents odors from developing. Basically, you'll forget you're on your period.
