How to choose the right period underwear for Teens

“I see that my daughter really likes her Vitals pack. She is much more comfortable with her periods now” - Gracia

Ditch the first period overwhelm and distress because our period wear makes your teen's transition much easier. Choose them because they are:

Most comfortable option.

Vitals almost feel like second skin. They look and feel like normal underwear so teens do not go through period anxiety ever. Made from natural, absorbent and breathable materials like bamboo and cotton there are no surprising odors or accidental leaks with Vitals.

Fully Reliant. 

With a high front and full back leakproof support, Vitals are built with no room for leaks. With a range of absorbances up to 40mls, there is more than one style to suit any flow. Ultra stretchy comfort of Vitals make teens reach out for a pair, be it period or not! 

Easy period routine. 

Vitals are washable, reusable and look discreet. Pop them on like regular underwear, rinse and wash later. With a full Vitals period pack they'll be covered for all period surprises. They can be changed anywhere with our Fresh n Dry Bag. 


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 boy leg style briefs we suggest our full coverage styles like Hipster and Classic.

Teen favourites include familiar low-rise styles like Shorts, Sleek, Bikini and Cheekini.


Where’s the size chart for Teens? 

We have made it easier for you. Skip the tape and choose the same size as your best fitting undies. All our styles are close to the standard brief sizing but the fit may vary due to body type, please check the popular suggestions by our users below.

16-18 12 / L

All our styles follow standard brief sizing. We suggest choosing styles depending on the body type.

Which styles are swim-proof? 

Our medium flow range, both Sleek and Classic are swim friendly. Read more on swimming with Vitals here.

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 cycles. 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? 

Change anywhere with our Fresh n Dry bag
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.

Travel friendly wash bag to do laundry 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!
