Panty liners

Panty liners are crafted of a soft and highly absorbent material, and are worn inside panties to prevent leakage. They are thinner and more narrow than pads and sanitary napkins, and therefore absorb less. They are more discreet, and so comfortable the wearer hardly feels it.

What is the Purpose of Panty Liners?

Panty liners are most commonly utilized for the following purposes.

  • They offer protection from small leakages due to light urinary incontinence.
  • They prevent panties from becoming damp due to vaginal perspiration.
  • They are worn during lighter days of the period instead of a full pad.
  • They are used in addition to tampons in case of menstrual leaks.
  • They are worn in case of irregular menstrual cycles.
  • They provide protection from spotting.

  • They catch post-sex leakage.

Panty liners can even be used daily, either just in case or for a refreshingly clean feel.
