FAQs

Which styles are the best for Teens? 

We suggest going for low-rise, cheeky styles like Sleek, Bikini and Cheekini. Most teens are comfortable in these styles as they are familiar with these styles already. If your teen prefers hipster or a boyleg style briefs we suggest our full coverage styles like Hipster and Classic.

How many pairs of underwear is required for a full cycle? 

A pack of 6 undies will keep them covered for a full cycle of 5 day, but requires laundry so they have fresh pairs ready again for the next few days. A pack of 8 undies will require little washing between the cycle. We suggest buying in packs if they are new to period underwear. 


What’s the wash routine? 

Give them a quick rinse and pop them into a machine wash. Do not use a tumble dryer as it weakens the durability. Here are detailed care hacks for Vitals.


How to change during activities? 

We have designed two bags that make period routine easier at any instance. Our Fresh n Dry bag supports changing used undies anywhere. It is built in with separate odour-proof pouches to store used and fresh undies anywhere.

We also designed a Portable Load washer to support washing undies during camping, hiking or anywhere else. Our washer bag doesn’t need electricity or excess water. Just Soak-Shake-Squeeze after adding used undies into the bag with some water and soap. Repeat the cycle with fresh water and dry!

Travel friendly wash bag to do laundry anywhere!
