A brief guide to swim in Vitals

Yes you can totally swim in all Vitals Medium flow styles. The Classic brief and Sleek bikini styles in our medium flow range are perfect to swim in because they are built in with thin and breathable (but absorbent) layers which catch your flow when you need it. 

CLASSIC BRIEF                                           SLEEK BIKINI   

Before you jump into a pool for a swim, here are five things you should know:

1. Swimming during periods 

Fact: You only need protection to manage the gush of flow once out of water.

Your flow is halted or insignificant when you are immersed in water, solely a phenomenon of buoyancy. The flow will return or gush out once you are out of the water, that's when you need Vitals for the actual protection.

2. Why Vitals period undies while swimming?

Fact: Breathability and No bulk.

Vitals Originals are breathable and swim-friendly. There are no bulky fabrics like in the absorbent gusset. Vitals won't get 'filled up' or 'soggy' when immersed in water. Wear a fresh pair every time you get into the water.

3. Where can you swim in Vitals?

Fact: Natural Pools - Low Chlorinated Pools

Because all styles in Vitals have 95% natural fibers, it's best to wear them in natural water bodies. Wearing them in heavily chlorinated pools could shed out the fibers. Vitals are perfect for non-performance based swimming.

4. Can the flow escape into water?

Fact: No. There is little or no flow when in water.

Wear a fresh pair when entering into the pool. Buoyancy will help here and the flow will only continue once you are out of water. There is no way you will flood the pool red or pollute the water for others.

5. Can disease spread through water?

Fact: Nope. Not a chance.

Blood cannot sustain in water. Blood-borne diseases can only transmit through blood, sex or pregnancy. Scientifically blood compounds burst, shrivel or get inactive in water. Hence, disease cannot spread.
