About the product

What can Vitals period undies do?  

Vitals undies and periods make a great team. Shielded with the best leak proof finish, it absorbs your period flow with ease. You wear them like your regular undies-Double wash with cold water-Air dry them before using them again.

How much flow can they actually hold? 

Vitals can hold up to 3 regular tampons worth. Some ladies say they hold a bit more than that, its safe to say they can perfectly work solo on your medium-heavy days.

Do I need to wear it with a pad/tampon? 

You decide! If your flow is very heavy, you can choose to team it up with other products. You can also wear them solo and change into a new pair when you need to. 

How many undies do I need to cover my period with period underwears?

A set of 5 should be able to cover a 5-7 day cycle.

How often do I need to wash my Vitals undies?

It's best to rinse them right after you use. You can follow it with a hand wash or machine wash with a gentle detergent after a rinse.


Can I use Vitals period undies for Bladder leakage or Postpartum discharge?

Yes you can! Remember that period undies are capable to take only light bladder leakages tho. Like one of those accidental leaks after a big sneeze. 

Can my discharge bleach the undies?
Yes and it's normal. Vaginal discharge is usually acidic. If your discharge is too acidic, undies do get bleached. A quick tip is to avoid wearing undies for longer than 24 hours when menstruating. Stay hydrated to keep your body's pH normal. They still work the same if they get bleached.

What are the materials used ?

Bamboo, Cotton and Eco-PU. Check out Our Materials for more info.

Do Vitals undies have any toxic chemicals or coatings?

Definitely not. We have used a different variety in PU as our leak proof barrier. It's different from PUL which is subjugated to lot more toxic chemical processing. Our materials are certified by OEKO-TEX with Standard 100 which states to be the best labels for human-ecological use.

What's the best way to keep my undies fresh like new?

There shouldn't any odour after a good wash. But if you like your undies smelling like roses, try this. Add some baking soda, few drops of essential oils and soak wash them in cold water. Works great!
