I love my Yvonnes! I was initially nervous about wearing them on my heavy days so wore them on a day when I was at home. I thought I must have had a lighter day than usual until I rinsed them out in the evening and clearly I hadn't! They hold so much! They're comfy and soft and look amazing and feel amazing and I love them!
I usually use a moon cup but wanted some period pants for those first days and last few days of my period, where the flow isn’t enough to justify all the moon cup washing. I had a baby 9 months ago, and I was starting to wonder when my period would return. Of course, it showed up two days before my first international flight with a baby! Just my luck. I had no idea what my flow would be, as your period can change so much after an 18 month break and all the changes pregnancy and labour bring! Now, not only was I contemplating how nappy changes would go on a plane, I was going to have to sort myself out! With a baby! I absolutely did not want to be changing and cleaning a moon cup in an aeroplane toilet, and didn’t want to go back to tampons and pads - I hate how disposable pads feel. Then I remembered I had my Rosa Seven period pants! I put on my heavy flow pants, and that was me sorted for the whole flight. Even if I had had to change, whipping off some pants and popping them in a bag and popping a new pair on was a way less stressful prospect than cleaning a moon cup while holding a baby. But as I say, I didn’t need to. One pair lasted the whole journey, and I didn’t ever feel wet or uncomfortable, no icky pad moving around down there! So so glad I had them - comfortable, clean, dry, and able to focus on my baby. From dread to back in control in one pair of beautiful pants. Can’t recommend them enough! Rachel x
P.s, happy for you to share this review, and I’d also like to send through a photo of me in my period pants, showing off my new post- baby wrinkly belly button proudly! I know your brand is all about being body confidant and I love my post-baby body because I’m so impressed with the fact it made and delivered a baby - and bounced back! So I’m proud of my new wrinkly belly button haha! Feel free to share.
Thanks so much Rachel for sharing this insightful experience. We are so happy your Rosaseven made your life easier travelling with your baby! & thanks for sending those pics along. You are beautiful! all the way!
I was a tampon user since ever, day and night. But I wanted to operate a change and tried the underwear period. I am enthusiastic to have chosen Rosaseven and the Yvonne. Life changer!! The first two nights I was even wondering if I was bleeding ´cause I never felt wet or any discomfort. This is magic.
Now moving to next step with day underwear and I never felt so good!
Bye bye unhealthy tampons, hello healthy sexy comfy underwear!
I love use them alone! It's freeing
I have overpassed the period phase. I am keeping my two Yvonne underwear for horse-riding. They are very comfortable and keep me warm when I stand 5 hours in the saddle and also avoid the small drop that wets my pants when I make pi in
