Wuka Swimming Period Pants Overview
WUKA Swimming Bikini Pants are designed to give you period protection for use in the swimming pool, hot tub or beach.
Period swimwear is a designed for your light flow days when you want some water fun but are NOT suitable for your heavy flow days.
Wuka Swimming Bikini pants look like many of my normal black bikini bottoms, there really isn't any visual different about them. The gusset is thicker but not that anyone would notice! What i'm also very pleased about is that there is NOT a logo on the outside of the pants so there is nothing to give away what they are.
Wuka swimming pants holds up to 2 tampons worth of menstrual flow. It's important to remember they should only be used for a light period and light menstrual flow. On your heavier days you would need to use a tampon or menstrual cup and could wear the period swim pants as a back up.
Quick drying so you can sunbathe in them just like an ordinary bikini.
Super flattering fit. The soft smooth and stretchy nylon fabric with a high leg cut which fits nicely to your body.
Extender Wear Time Warning
Period swimwear is designed to absorb your menstrual blood while you are swimming and are fabulous to wear for your regular swim, swimming lessons etc. However they are not designed to be your sole source of all-day protection. When you need to wear the costume for an extended period such as a day at the pool, beach or a waterpark you can't wear just the one costume all day without the risk of leaking. Why? The swimsuit will also absorb pool water, and if you've been wearing the costume for an extended time it will also have absorbed blood so when you come back to sit on your sun lounger, beach towel or queue up for a ride there is a real risk that the excess water that drips or is squeezed out as you sit will be tinged red with blood.
So what do you do for all day wear?
I'd recommend you have two costumes so you can change throughout the day. How frequently you need to change costumes will depend on how heavy your flow is and how often you are in the water. This might be every 30 minutes or every 2 hours. When you go to change, wipe yourself clean as much as possible, put on your new costume then rinse the worn costume until the water runs clear. Then dry the used costume in the sun or in a towel until you may need to change the costume again. A dark or black towel to wrap around yourself or sit on when you get out of the pool would be better than a white or lightly coloured towel. You may also consider a menstrual cup or disc for heavier flow days, with the period swimwear providing additional protection against leaks.

How do I use it?
Period proof swimwear is very popular with teenagers either swimming for fun or competitively. The Wuka bikini period swimwear is designed to be worn on their own however some prefer to wear them under their usual swimming costume/bikini bottoms. The Wuka period swimwear bottoms are a thin material with a high leg cut so you can easily wear them under your favourite swimming costume.
The outer material isn't like the rest of the WUKA period products range instead it is a water repellent swimming costume material.
WUKA stands for Wake Up Kick Ass and their mission is to create the world's most comfortable and eco friendly period underwear.
