If you're not into the idea of wearing a tampon or menstrual cup to bed and have found that pads bunch or shift as you sleep, opting for period underwear is a solid solution for absorbing your menstrual flow while you catch some quality zzz's.
Boyshorts, hip-huggers, and briefs are three styles worth considering as you start shopping. These types of undies tend to offer a little more coverage on the sides of the legs and in the back, may not dig in or ride up quite as much as other styles (read: thongs, certain cheeky cuts), and can be found in low-rise, mid-rise, and high-rise options. They can act as sleep bottoms on their own but are also great options for under PJs. While the type of underwear you sleep in is really a personal preference, experts note that, in terms of vaginal health, choosing a breathable fabric is best.
Of course, the benefit of the 10 pairs below is that they act as your menstrual care product too and help prevent leaks on your sheets.
