'Absolutely delighted with this period swim suit! Does what it says on the tin. Works for little leaks as well as periods. Stylish but still practical. Adjustable. 9.5 out of 10 I’m so pleased cheeky wipes are considering expanding their range. Girl power!!' Alison, Test reviewer Dec 2021

These period swimsuits are 'gamechanging!'  If you've been wondering if you can swim on a light period, the answer is a resounding YES!

Looking just like a gorgeous 'regular' swimsuit, these female swimmers for your period are not only super flattering but have a hidden absorbent lining.

Just like our period pants they absorb menstrual flow without being bulky or noticable. Our waterproof swimwear for periods means that you can pop to the pool or beach without having the worry of a pad or tampon! Brilliant back up to a menstrual cup if you use one.

'I’ve worn this in the pool and in the sea. I have it on for at least 30 mins before swimming, and because the bust support is good, I can wear it without a bra. I want decent boob support. I have stress incontinence and feel very confident wearing this.

I’m also perimenopausal and my periods are unpredictable. After 2 months without one, I now have had had a week long one. So the suit has been fantastic! I just don’t have to worry about being on my period. I’ve stopped using tampons or moon cups so usually avoided swimming for a few days. Not anymore! I’m in the water for up to 30 minutes and have had no problems at all.'

How absorbent is Cheeky Period Proof Swimwear?

The absorbent lining is slightly thinner than some period pants, so avoid wearing solo on your heaviest days. However, the gusset is antibacterial and breathable, plus quick drying!

The outer fabric is water repellent ... take a look at our demo video below!

This stops water (from the pool or sea) absorbing into the inside of the swimsuit. To ensure this is effective make sure your swimsuit has a really good fit around the legs - you don't want any gaping when you're moving!
