What to wear during your periods
World Menstrual Hygiene Day has got us all talking about the dreaded few days in a woman’s life. Let’s share some outfit hacks that make the shark week ea

By Express News Service
HYDERABAD: It’s a menstrual hygiene day! While we all are finally opening upon the taboo subject, it’s time we share some go-to ideas we all swear by during the dreaded shark week if you’re up for dressing up and showing up (you can always just stay home!). Here are a few:

High waist everything
Anything that cuts on your waist will spell your doom during periods. High waist skirts or pants (ideally stretchy or loose) will help you take care of the bloating showing up. And the slight pressure might even help with the cramps. Make sure you don’t strangle yourself in tightness.

Jeans are your best friend
Now, jeans might not be a popular choice during periods. But jeans that aren’t skinny fitting or light coloured can come handy. Jeans that fit comfortably will make sure your pad or tampon stays in place.

Try prints
Stains are a woman’s biggest fear during those days of the month. No matter how careful you are there are always some accidents. Try wearing prints to camouflage the occasional leaks. Mind you this is just a contingency plan.

Leggings
Paired with the right kurta or even a long t-shirt, leggings are almost as comfortable as track pants. If you’re conscious of the bulge of pads or the stain scare, match it with a tunic or tops that go past your hips to stay safe.

Skip the heels
This one is a no-brainer. One could skip the heels even when they aren’t on the period but stay away from the stilts during because of the pressure it causes on the lower back which is probably already hurting from cramps.

Sporty and sneaky
Change your style to sporty for a few days. Pick t-shirt dresses if you have to go for a night out. These will keep you comfortable and will also feel dressy on occasions. Pick joggers and match them with a nice blouse or top to trick people into thinking you’re all put together.

What To Wear During Your Period For Total Comfort
By Melodi Erdogan
July 28, 2015

There are many wonders to being a woman, but deciding what to wear during your period is not one of them. Personally, when blood flows from my vagina and I’m required to clean up every couple of hours or so, the only thing that sounds comfortable is a pair of sweatpants. Unfortunately for me, sweatpants are generally not acceptable in most real life settings, or really any setting outside of our couch, accompanied with chocolate covered candies and Netflix.

However, despite our female reproductive organs sometimes causing many of us miserable, insufferable, excruciating pain, and just making us generally uncomfortable, we’re still functioning human beings. This means real clothes — not sweatpants — are required to make it through the day. But that’s the challenge: Choosing comfortable clothes that are totally wearable in the day to day.

Of course, women’s clothes are hardly made with the menstrual cycle in mind. Pencil skirts? Skinny jeans? Dresses? While they’re fine any other time of the month, they pose threats and unnecessary discomfort during this special time (falling tampons, anyone?). Luckily, there are other pieces in almost everyone’s wardrobe that are perfectly comfortable and acceptable in most environments for those few days that we need them.

  1. Jeans

Lookout High-Rise Jean in Wallace Wash, $125, jcrew

I love denim, and while it may not seem like the best fabric for dealing with your period, there are major benefits to wearing jeans. You’ll probably want to stay away from the super tight, restricting pair that’s impossible to get on and off, of course. However, throwing on a pair you know you can rely on it, that fits well, and that doesn’t make you feel like your pad or tampon is at risk of slipping is a sure way to completely forget about your cycle.

  1. Graphic T-Shirt

Out Of Bed Tee, $15, Forever21

What better way to show the world that you’re on your period than with a sassy graphic T-shirt? Some of us feel the effects of the hormones on days before we even see any blood. Instead of having to talk about how you feel and getting down to business, just wear a T-shirt that explains it for you. No words necessary, with barely any effort involved.

  1. Soft Sweater

Dip-Dye Ribbed Knit Jumper, $80, Topshop

Soft clothing is a no brainer when all you need is some comfort and warmth on your period, and a soft, cashmere sweater that feels like a cloud is embracing you is without a doubt the way to go. I’m a big fan of cuddling up with a hot cup of tea and a good movie on Netflix, and, of course, my favorite cozy, comfortable sweater. There’s nothing better than feeling warmth and love, even if it is from an inanimate object.

  1. Jumpsuit

Plus Diana Strappy Slouch Jumpsuit, $35, Boohoo

Period or not, sometimes getting dressed can just be a hassle. However, with easy one piece ensembles, like the above jumpsuit or even a romper, there need not be any struggle in the mornings. Something like this can be dressed up or down, and is a great foundation for pretty accessories and jewelry.

  1. Leggings

On-The-Go Glam Leggings in Black, $30, Modcloth

Leggings are nearly sweatpants, right? Well, not exactly. Leggings have the comfort of sweatpants but are much easier to pair with professional-looking blouses and shirts. Especially when they’re a little more dynamic and unique. They’re movable, breathable, and super chic, so no one on Earth would even know you’re on your period.

  1. T-Shirt Dress

New Look Inspire Jersey T-shirt Dress, $33, Asos

If your schedule requires you to attend formal, professional events but you’re looking for a more comfortable option, a T-shirt dress might just be the answer to your prayers. They provide the comfort of an old shirt but in an elongated form so no pants are necessary. Whether you’re on your period or not, a piece like this is sure to get a lot of use in your wardrobe.

  1. Sweatpants

Zipper Pocket French Terry Pants, $23, Charlotterusse

Remember what I said about sweatpants not being socially acceptable clothing? I must admit that I have never worn sweatpants outside of the house. When it’s that time of month, however, and there’s absolutely no reason for me to go out, it’s sweatpants time all the way. There’s just nothing more comfortable or more relaxing than letting the blood flow in a pair of sweats. Plus, the athleisure trend is actually resulting in some pretty nifty loungewear, so not all hope of chicness is lost.

What to wear on your period at home

You’re home, and you don’t have to worry about what you’re wearing. You can let your hair down and relax, but there are still some things to consider when you’re on your period.

When it comes to what to wear on your period at home, comfort is key. But that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style or function. Here are a few ideas for what to wear on your period at home:

-Sports bras: They’re comfortable and easy to wash! If you want something a little more stylish, try a camisole or tank top with shorts or leggings underneath.

-Pants: Chinos or jeans are great options because they’re comfortable and durable enough for everyday wear but stylish enough for going out in public if necessary (if only because denim just looks good). Be sure to check the pockets before washing though—you don’t want any surprises waiting for you after the wash cycle!

Periods are a natural process that every woman has to go through. It is a monthly cycle that happens in your body, which you have no control over. It can be painful and uncomfortable at times but there are many ways to make your experience more tolerable. In this article, we will discuss what to wear on your period at home

It’s that time of the month again, and you don’t have to worry about what to wear.

You might be wondering why you should even care about what you’re wearing on your period. Well, it’s because your clothes can tell people a lot about who you are and what you stand for. But more importantly, it can make or break how comfortable you feel throughout your day.

The first step is knowing what type of clothes work best for you while on your period. If you’re looking for something that is both comfortable and stylish, we’ve got just the thing for you!

Check out our new line of pajamas for women! We’ve taken all the guesswork out of finding just the right look: every piece in our collection has been designed with comfort in mind—and they’ll never leave you feeling self-conscious when it comes down to it.

High waist skirts or pants (ideally stretchy or loose) will help you take care of the bloating showing up. And the slight pressure might even help with the cramps. Make sure you don’t strangle yourself in tightness. Now, jeans might not be a popular choice during periods.

For a lot of us, our periods come once every month. It’s different for everyone, but the gist of it is this: cramps are painful and uncomfortable, our hormones are wild and we cry and spiral sometimes. Times are tough when we’re menstruating, so we’re enlisting the help of our clothing (and warm tummy tea) to make things a little bit easier. Getting dressed while on your period isn’t solely about wearing comfortable clothing, the goal is to also feel good about yourself when your body may physically be feeling worn down.

So how do we cope during those rough few days every month? We’re not saying we’ve got it down to a science, but we do have some period life hacks up our sleeve (like how to remove period stains). Elastic waistbands are our best friend, so are extra soft fluffy fabrics (especially terry, ahem scroll for some of the comfiest sweats we own). Load up on extra accessories and wear sunglasses to help with those period migraines but also to look chic. We asked 10 editors to share their I may be bleeding but I still look good and I’m comfortable looks, scroll down to see their best tips and tricks.

  1. Lauren Caruso, Site Director at The Zoe Report
    “When I have my period, I generally don’t like to wear anything that touches my body — especially in the summer. I gravitate toward loose shorts, body-skimming dresses, and heavier fabrics (just in case). I’m forever paranoid so my only outfit hack is the same one that worked in 8th grade: a jacket around my waist. Other than that, it’s just about being comfortable.”

    “I love these shorts, they have a super comfy elastic waist and I have them in almost every print. They look good with anything, a vintage tee or an oversized tailored shirt. You can do some strong accessories since to glam it up! A fun beaded bag or some drop earrings are always the move. And sunglasses always help when you’re feeling a little under the weather. Period fun fact: Australia doesn’t have tampon applicators so it took me a little bit of time to get used to it, now I can’t imagine otherwise (biodegradable ones of course).”

    “I always love wearing dark-colored slip dresses when I’m on my period. I find that they are loose and comfortable yet still flattering. I opt for a darker hue for obvious reasons and typically style it with a low strappy sandal or simple sneakers. As far as outfit hacks while on your period go, I would recommend not wearing anything too tight around your midsection. At least personally, I find that I never know what my period can throw at me and how my body will react, so I would rather be safe than sorry with a slinky dress. It basically feels like I’m still in my pajamas.”

    “My period is the worst. I have severe cramps and bloating so when it comes to what I wear it has be comfortable or else I would be miserable all day. My go-to outfit is always a ruched dress because it puts light pressure on my stomach to help with the cramps and hides the bloating! I’ll usually pair the dress with sneakers to be comfortable throughout the day! One outfit hack is wear any and everything with an elastic waistband, trust me!”

    “We all have “period” underwear, the stained, beat-up rags we dig out of our panty drawers when our period hits. Or well, I had those undergarments before I started challenging myself to have a completely waste-free period. Now, I’m a dedicated period cup user (there’s a learning curve but once you get it, it’s so worth it, not just for the waste-free element but because it’s honestly more comfortable than pads and tampons IMO!) and Thinx lover. I only have one pair of Thinx (the Air hiphuggers) and I usually wear these the first day of my period before sliding in my cup for the rest of it. I adore them. They’re easy to wash, absorb a full day’s worth of blood for me, and best of all, feel pretty comfortable all day. It’s easy to find sub-pair pairs of bike shorts, not so easy to find the perfect pair and these might be. They’re stretchy-but-firm, ridiculously comfy, and rarely give me camel toe. To be completely honest, I have no exercised in these at all, but I have worn them throughout multiple periods and while retiling my balcony and they feel amazing throughout all these activities.”

    “I tend to wear loose dresses or slip skirts when I’m on my period for two reasons: 1) They’re very freeing, thus don’t contribute any pressure and worsen my cramps. 2) They give me the opportunity to add a layer of defense (spandex shorts) between my underwear and my outfit, which makes me less fearful on my heavy flow days.”

    “Believe it or not, I’m notorious in my office for wearing white during that time of my month. I think it’s my way of telling myself, nothing is going to stop you. I don’t think having your period should sacrifice your style! In the comfort of my house, or my weekend look – I’m all about a matching set. Recently, I’m obsessed with these tie-dye Cotton Citizen sets. There’s nothing better than being comfortable and not feeling guilty about being bloated.”

    “I’m not above dressing in head-to-toe sweats during my period. And I’m a strong believer that you can make sweats look good and dressed up with the right accessories. I love a matching set, but during my period when I’m feeling a little funky I’ll mix-and-match my sweats. These two brands make the softest sweats, great for when you’re menstruating but also when you’re not! I especially love the Madhappy sweaters because of their terry fleece which is perfect year round. Drool!!!”

    “I used to hate wearing dresses when I was on my period because I just felt my pads weren’t secure enough and I would simply stain everything. Now though, thanks to the biking shorts trend, dresses have become my go-to when Mother Nature arrives because I get the best of both worlds. Biking shorts are tight enough to make me (and my pads) feel secured and dresses make me feel cute even if I want to curl myself into a ball and fill my bloated belly with dark chocolate.”
