Can girls still swim when they have their period?

Yes, Here's How!

"But how will I go swimming!?" It's one of the most commonly asked questions when a girl gets her period.

She can hit the pool or dive into the ocean waves even while on her period without:

  • Using tampons (which often freak girl out until they're a little older)
  • Resorting to the awkwardness of a pad in the pool, or
  • Being relegated to the sidelines.

Our collection of period swimwear is designed with young swimmers in mind, ensuring that girls can master their metres any day of the month.

Why choose teen period swimwear?

Did you know that 67% of girls either ditch sessions or quit swimming because of their period? That's a staggering number. By choosing the right swimwear, you’re telling her that her period shouldn’t dictate her activities.

Pads in the pool? They're not the best mix—becoming soggy and moving out of place, which is the last thing anyone wants. Our swimwear is the antithesis of this scenario—offering leak-proof confidence with pool-ready, period-proof innovation.

What's the difference between absorbent swim liners and period pads?

Diving into the pool with period swimwear is such a game changer compared to using pads. Why? Well, imagine chilling in the pool without the worry of that weird, soggy pad feeling.

Period swimwear is made with layers of absorbent lining that are made for protection in the cool. The fabrics are super smart - they're absorbent where you need it, and water repellent everywhere else, so you won't feel like you're lugging around a wet towel while you do your best mermaid impression.

Plus, water can also make the sticky backing that keeps your pad in place ineffective. Another reason why it's not good idea to swim on your period with a pad.
