Love Luna Teens First Period Swimsuit
Love Luna Teens first period swim wear one piece is designed so that your teen can continue going swimming without the need for tampons or a menstrual cup or disc. The swim suit is specifically designed to fit tweens and teens and comes in junior sizes.
The Love Luna Teens First Period swimming costume is made with 4 layers of absorbent protection while also having clever water repellent fabric. Your teen will feel confident swimming and getting out of the pool without awkward accidents or embarrassing situations.
The Love Luna period swimwear has a four way stretch for a smooth fit over younger growing bodies and full bottom coverage.
Extender Wear Time Warning
Period swimwear is designed to absorb your menstrual blood while you are swimming and are fabulous to wear for your regular swim, swimming lessons etc. However they are not designed to be your sole source of all-day protection. When you need to wear the costume for an extended period such as a day at the pool, beach or a waterpark you can't wear just the one costume all day without the risk of leaking. Why? The swimsuit will also absorb pool water, and if you've been wearing the costume for an extended time it will also have absorbed blood so when you come back to sit on your sun lounger, beach towel or queue up for a ride there is a real risk that the excess water that drips or is squeezed out as you sit will be tinged red with blood.
So what do you do for all day wear?
I'd recommend you have two costumes so you can change throughout the day. How frequently you need to change costumes will depend on how heavy your flow is and how often you are in the water. This might be every 30 minutes or every 2 hours. When you go to change, wipe yourself clean as much as possible, put on your new costume then rinse the worn costume until the water runs clear. Then dry the used costume in the sun or in a towel until you may need to change the costume again. A dark or black towel to wrap around yourself or sit on when you get out of the pool would be better than a white or lightly coloured towel. You may also consider a menstrual cup or disc for heavier flow days, with the period swimwear providing additional protection against leaks.
