Our menstrual swimsuits are ideal as a mix and match!

Our 2-piece format allows you to equip yourself at a low price during your period, by simply ordering our menstrual stockings.

We suggest that you opt for our Sixtine shorty as soon as the swim is over.

Our different colors and our reversible swimsuit top model Arielle black in two colors allow you to choose your desire of the moment!

Our range of menstrual swimwear is ideal for light flows alone, or in addition to another internal protection for a heavy flow. Our different swimwear models are available in different cuts, from bikini to 1-piece, in black and color, in different sizes, from XS / Teen to XXL, for all women. Our bathing products are perfect during your period for the beach and the pool, thanks to their absorbent character.

Made in France, always with Oeko Tex fabric in the usual respect of your intimacy, we do our best to offer them to you at the right price: take advantage of our pack offers to discover them at a low price.

The technology behind
How does a menstrual swimsuit work?

In the sea or in the pool, the water pressure slows down (but does not stop!) the flow of menstruation: the amount of blood lost is therefore minimal and is generally diluted in the water as you move, except for clots, which are retained.

This is normal, and it is thanks to this property that our lingerie and bathing suit are easily rinsed before being put in the washing machine.

It is especially at the exit of bath, that the technology of our menstrual bathing suit takes all its direction. Its elasticated thighs and absorbent core, which does not swell, effectively retain more viscous fluids inside, such as blood, while our breathable polyamide allows water to quickly drain away when leaving the bath, so it does not accumulate and weigh down the swimsuit.

This avoids the unpleasant surprise of blood running down your thighs after swimming. This way you have plenty of time to change!

Special bathing textile engineering

Our menstrual swimsuit has an ingenious fabric assembly

Made of a polyamide designed for swimming, with a honeycomb texture for the visible part, smooth in contact with your skin and your mucous membranes, it is in the heart of the absorbent zone that our OEKO-TEX certified technical fabrics are discreetly encapsulated! There is a double layer of organic cotton, which drains and retains viscous liquids like blood. A waterproof membrane finishes this ingenious assembly to keep you safe during your beach or pool session!

A design that can withstand the constraints of the water
An absorbent zone designed for the bathtub exit

Our absorbent zone is deliberately low, to promote water flow out of the bath! That's why we recommend this model for light flows and spotting. Blood, which is more viscous and therefore heavier, is well absorbed by our organic cotton core, even during prolonged lying down. An absorbent zone that is too high would create a pocket of stagnant water that would weigh down the swimsuit. This design also reduces drying time.

For heavier flows, it is possible to wear our swimsuit bottoms in addition to another sanitary protection (cup, organic tampon...). Our absorbent zone will act as an extra security!

A thousand and one ways to wear them: you choose yours!

Your best swimsuit is a menstrual swimsuit

Tie a pretty bow in the front or cross the belt over the belly by tying it in the back: our menstrual swimsuit can be worn as you wish. With our different choices of tops, the combinations are multiple!

Why change?

All our products are designed in collaboration with midwives and gynecologists. Their feedback is unanimous: it is not ideal for the mucous membranes to remain in contact with a wet garment all day, especially during menstruation.

Ideally, and as soon as possible, we recommend not keeping a wet bathing suit (menstrual or not) for more than 2 hours. And for all those who want to extend their tanning or swimming time, our Sixtine shorty can take over while your swimsuit dries in the sun!

Washing and maintenance

How to wash your menstrual swimsuit?

Designed to resist chlorine and sea salt, the materials of our swimsuits can be maintained like your classic menstrual lingerie: rinse with clear water, put in the washing machine at a low temperature, without heat or tumble dry. Taking care of your swimsuit guarantees it will last longer!
