There are several reputable brands that make excellent period swimwear that is designed to catch fluid and clotting. Our 5 favorite brands make such fashionable bathing suits, nobody will even know they were designed for menstruation. While you wear their swimsuits on light to medium flow days, you can skip having to wear a tampon, pad, or menstrual cup to the pool!


These 4 brands make the best period swimwear for teens and adults:


1. Modibodi

Modibodi was created by a new mom who understood the need for leak protection all too well. She set out to solve the problem and her vision led to the creation of the Modifier Technology that is used to keep you leak-free. Year after year the company wins numerous awards for its innovative and effective products.

To add even more value to this brand, the company’s products are designed to eliminate waste. They do so by reducing the need for disposable feminine hygiene products like tampons. They also use recycled materials like in the swim bottoms above. These cute high-waisted briefs have UPF 50+ sun protection and a fast-drying liner for your comfort!

Modibodi makes cute period swimwear for teens too! The cute black bathing suit above is from their teen line of period swimwear. The back design is incredibly stylish. It’s the perfect suit for being active during your time of the month. The built-in liner can absorb light to medium flow and works to fight odors and bacteria. It’s a great swimsuit for those not comfortable wearing tampons!

“Bought for 15-year-old daughter who is a trainee lifeguard so swimming weekly, or more, is a must. She reports that it fits well, feels comfortable, allows her good range of motion, feels secure and most important of all – allows her to forget she has her period. She has two pairs of the bikini bottoms too that are sometimes worn with a top or under a normal swimsuit.” – Wendy

You may have heard of Savvi Wear as they were recently featured in both Glamour and Cosmopolitan. Of the leakproof swimwear available on Amazon, Savvi Wear is among the best!

What sets their products apart is that they use 3 powerful gusset layers – a moisture-wicking layer, an absorbent layer, and a leakproof layer. On light-medium flow days, you can wear these suits without anything else like a tampon.  We love how affordable these bikini briefs are and we love their mid-waisted style too!

“I am so happy to say that these worked amazingly!! She was able to spend all day on the beach and not have to worry a single time about leaking. They’re also extremely easy to clean (thank God). I literally just throw them in the washer with a few towels or something. They come out looking brand new. I cannot recommend these enough!” – Burke

    Anyone have experience with these? My daughter has been begging me for a pair. Is it really true that you can wear these without any pad or tampon? I just can’t imagine that this works.

    • Jessica

      Yes. You have to watch which brand you order. Some look like you don’t have to wear one, but will leak. I bought my daughter a pair of bottoms from Ruby Love and they work great!

    • LR1104

      I bought bottoms from the Knix teen line for my 10 year and I’m so happy I did. They were worth the price and she has needed them several times this summer. She’s never had a problem using them. I will definitely purchase each summer.

  2. Brittany

    Got one by Knix and struggled to pay the price but it was absolutely worth it. She has been able to wear it tons with no leaks in multiple situations. Definitely worth the comfort for them when they’re not ready for tampons.

    • Nicole (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for your input, Brittany! I’m sure it will be helpful for other readers to know. Sounds like it was well worth the extra money.

  3. Sue

    Never knew these existed! Would’ve been a game-changer for me as I can not use tampons.

  4. Lisa

    I wish I’d had this in my teen years!

    Does anyone have feedback on Rubylove panties?

  5. Eliz

    So, how does this work? Blood doesn’t leak into a pool? Pads leak. So what keeps the liquid in place?

    • Lisa

      Eliz- I was always told that bleeding stops in cold water. To be honest, I never googled it. This is what my mother told me when I was a child.

  6. Sarah

    Got my 11yr old the Ruby Love one piece black swimsuit with a pair of black separate swim bottoms! She swims on swim team and she’s not comfortable to want to use tampons so these are the answer! She feels great in it and can focus on her swim practice or swim meet and not miss a beat being on her period. The RUBY Live suit I got her can hold up to 3 tampons worth just the suit on its own; then you can also add an additional non-absorbent pad they sell that can go inside the swim suit lining if you want more.

    • Nicole (Hip Sidekick)

      That’s great to hear that this is working so well for your daughter!
