Material is very comfy, thin and breathable! It’s like any good quality underwear, but with the added security to prevent stains/leakages. Personally found it useful to wear it the few days before my period arrives as my period tends to differ by a few days every month (and hence unpredictable!)
I was sent a pair of Leakproof Bamboo Underwear by the lovely folks over at BloodSG for review! The selling point of these is that they stop the leaks you sometimes get while using products such as menstrual cups, pads, and tampons. They can also be worn as everyday underwear.
Packaging: It comes in a resealable, reusable, biodegradable pouch. It's packed flat so you could easily toss it in your bag for when your period takes you by surprise while you're out (we've all had those!).
Colour/Looks: I was sent a pair in a shade called Sandcastle, which is completely beige except for the black waterproof lining. I like that I can wear these under light coloured dresses and bottoms (if I ever feel brave enough to do that on my period, of course!). And the black waterproof layer means no bloodstains. It's plain except for a fashionable diagonal strip of mesh in front - no lace or anything.
Size and fit: According to the size chart, I'm an XL, but I opted for L instead because I prefer a snugger fit when it comes to period underwear. My hips are UK14-16 depending on the cut and I probably would have been fine with either L or XL. For those who get bad bloating on your period, you should probably go for your usual size so you don't feel too constricted. It rises higher and covers more of your bum than a regular bikini brief. I prefer more coverage when I'm on my period, so that's a plus for me. Overall, it's a gender neutral style, so these could be worn comfortably by anyone who menstruates.
Comfort: Omg, you guys. Bamboo is the way to go. Light, soft, moisture wicking...what more could you ask for in Singapore's weather? I wore these around on a hot day and didn't get that humid feeling you sometimes get. 🤢 Compared to some other leakproof and period underwear I have tried, the seams on these are comfortable, and the waterproof layer is still as soft as the rest of the garment.
Waterproofing: Full disclosure, I haven't worn these yet on my actual period, but I've worn it to catch the discharge I sometimes get in the week or so leading up to my next cycle. I had no complaint about that and I'm looking forward to wearing it with my menstrual cup.
Overall: Super soft and comfortable, these are exactly as advertised. I highly recommend these and would love to get a few more pairs for myself! 🥰
Is really good. Light and comfortable! Tried many different types of period panties and this is so far the best i would say!
I loveeeeee the material and the hand written note… I value things that comes from heart and one of it is hand written notes or letter. I felt special and thank you sooo much team blood.. I haven’t start using it yet because I just got them today. Thank you again
The underwear is soft and breathable, and looks good! I got XL, which is the largest size, and it was still a touch too small for me (I prefer my undies not to dig in at all into my hips). Nonetheless I would recommend it!
