Which style of period knicker should I wear for my sport?

In a recent survey led by Dr Georgie Bruinvels, co-creator of the fitness app FitrWoman, 39 in 50 women found exercise eased the symptoms linked to the menstrual cycle, the most common being stomach cramps, breast pain and mood changes.

However, the use of sanitary products and activewear can add a lot of extra stress when exercising during your period. This is why we have developed multiple styles of period wear specifically cut for sport to support and help you feel safe whilst staying active. 

From yoga to netball, we have put together a guide to help you find the perfect fit.
