Finding the Perfect Fit: Your Guide to Reusable Period Products

Period pads, cups, period pants - what's the difference?

When you're new to the world of reusable period wear, it can be confusing to know where to start. That's why we've put together a handy guide to help you choose the right reusables for you. Let's dive right in!

Period Pants: Comfort Meets Confidence!

Period pants are the incognito heroes of your underwear drawer. Just wear them like normal pants when you've got your period and away you go!

Period pants come in different styles and absorbencies to suit your flow - the clever layered design is super absorbent and moisture-wicking with a waterproof layer for leakproof protection. When it's time to change, just rinse them under cold water and throw in the laundry.

Period Pads: Gentle and Eco-Friendly

Prefer a more traditional approach? NORA period pads are a great option to get you started with reusables. Our pads are made from soft, breathable cotton, giving you maximum comfort and protection. Like period pants, our pads are available in a range of absorbencies to suit your flow. Having a light day? Choose a liner or a light pad - these can hold up to 2 mini tampons' worth of blood; with none of the plastic waste you get with disposables.

When you're having a heavier day, choose from moderate, heavy and maxi absorbencies - these hold between 2 (regular) to 8 (super) tampons' worth of blood.

Ready to change your pad? Just rinse under cold water and throw in the wash.

Menstrual Cups: Compact and convenient environmental superstars

Tiny, reusable and a doddle to wash - menstrual cups are the unsung eco-hero of the period wear world. You can reuse the same silicone, medical-grade cup for years, meaning the amount of waste you create on your period is negligible.

The cups work by trapping menstrual blood in an air-tight seal inside your vagina. After a few hours, you just take it out, empty and after a quick rinse you're ready to re-use!

They're perfect for more active days when you want to go for a swim or do some yoga - they'll stay put so you can exercise worry-free.

Just like most things, there isn't a one-size fits all approach to reusable period wear. Everyone's different and you need to find the solution that works for you. Pads, pants, cups or a combination? It's truly up to you! Check out our range of reusables here
