Period Swimming Costume | Period Swimwear | Cheeky Wipes Australia
Please bear in mind AU sizing is one size larger than UK sizing - Size 10 UK will be size 12 AU
Great for: Whether you're expecting your first period, are established menstruator or on a lighter day of your period.
Use if: You fancy spending time at the beach or the pool without the faff of using a tampon or a menstrual cup to contain your period blood. Perfect period swimmers for tweens or teens for school swimming pool lessons! If you're looking for period proof bikini bottoms, we have found that our sassy' period panties are ok for lighter days or a dip in the hot tub!
Sizing tip: Size 2 to 24 - size down if between sizes - use the straps to adjust for a small/larger bust size
* When trying on do not remove hygiene sticker and try over own underwear - no returns will be accepted if this is removed
What we love:
- Made with treated nylon outer fabric which is water resistant and leak proof for lighter periods
- Double adjustable straps means you'll have the perfect fit
- Removable breast pads which help preserve your modesty if that's important to you, machine washing is fine but remove the breast pads and handwash separately to avoid the backing fabric from separating which may happen in the machine - this will not affect use if it occurs.
- holds two tampons worth of menstrual blood, perfect for a light period
- Suitable as a backup to menstrual cup or tampon for heavy flow
'Absolutely delighted with this period swimsuit! Does what it says on the tin. Works for little leaks as well as periods.
Stylish but still practical. Adjustable. 9.5 out of 10 I’m so pleased cheeky wipes are considering expanding their range. Girl power!!' Alison, Test reviewer Dec 2021
These period swimsuits are 'gamechanging!'
Can you swim with period swimwear? Do period bathers actually work?
The answer is a resounding YES!
Looking just like a gorgeous 'regular' bathing suit, these female swimmers for your period are not only super flattering but have a hidden absorbent lining. Perfect for peace of mind when swimming on light periods to regular flow periods.
Just like our period underwear they absorb menstrual flow without being bulky or noticeable. Our waterproof swimwear for periods means that you can pop to the pool or beach without having the worry of a pad or tampon! 'I’ve worn this in the pool and in the sea. I have it on for at least 30 mins before swimming, and because the bust support is good, I can wear it without a bra. I want decent boob support. I have stress incontinence and feel very confident wearing this.
I’m also perimenopausal and my periods are unpredictable. After 2 months without one, I now have had had a week long one. So the suit has been fantastic! I just don’t have to worry about being on my period.
I’ve stopped using tampons or moon cups so usually avoided swimming for a few days. Not anymore! I’m in the water for up to 30 minutes and have had no problems at all.'
How absorbent is Cheeky Period Proof Swimwear?
The absorbent lining is slightly thinner than some period pants, so avoid wearing solo on your heaviest days. However, the gusset is antibacterial and breathable, plus quick drying!
The outer fabric is water repellent ... take a look at our demo video below!
This stops water (from the pool or sea) absorbing into the inside of the swimsuit. To ensure this is effective make sure your swimsuit has a really good fit around the legs - you don't want any gaping when you're moving!

How do I wash my period swimwear?
Taking care of your Cheeky® period swimming costume couldn't be easier, Please wash cold with no fabric softener or bleach. Anything hotter than 30 degrees can impact the waterproof nature of the material and failing to adhere to the washing instructions will invalidate any returns.
