From slipping pads to uncomfortable and irritating ones, and all the way to those leaking sanitary towels, females across the world have been going through all sorts of difficulties during their menstrual cycles.

On top of feeling not so much like yourself, and maybe even experiencing excruciating period pains during your menstrual cycle, worrying about whether or not your pad will leak during the day or at night is the last thing any lady wants to think about during that time of the month.


Woolworths has come up with a backup plan to resolve such problems. The store announced a new product for teens and tween. Period panties are said to be expertly created to provide four times extra protection to absorb as much as a single tampon.

Period panties are a such a great product to have for the ladies that prefer not use tampons or simply just want added protection during the night or the day.

The new product will definitely make a difference for teens who enjoy participating in extra mural sport activities and even ladies who experience heavy menstrual flows.

The Woolworths Cotton Rich Period Bikini retails for R379.00. The period undies are made from a breathable soft cotton. They are said to be made stretchy which will definitely give that extra added comfort during one’s menstrual window. The panties are pocket savvy as they are washable and said to be reusable.

Nonetheless, they celebrated the progression in the sanitary market and were happy to know that the younger generation would experience a more comfortable time during their menstrual cycles.

@renejacobs8 asked:

“So you walk with that soiled panty on the entire day? Atleast a tampon or pad can be removed and replaced with a fresh one. Or am I misunderstanding this whole period panty thing🤭”

@saai_vallee replied:

“This isn’t to replace pads or tampons it’s to prevent accidents.”

“Very expensive for something that we don’t have a choice on😢, every girl/woman deserves to have a choice in which products works for them. Please rethink the price.”
