Are you game enough to wear white when you have your period? Or does the fear of period stained pants have you reaching for black and other dark colours when it’s that time of month?
Personally, I love wearing white clothes, especially in the summer. So I don’t want the fear of period leaks ruling my choice of what to wear on my period.
I’m determined to ensure my favourite white shorts and my favourite white jeans can still make the cut in my potential cute period outfits!
Luckily, I have discovered the secret to successfully wearing white without leaks, on any day of my period. And of course I want to share the secret with you!
Are you game to wear white on your period?
The other day, I shared on The Better Period Instagram, my ‘wearing white shorts on your period’ starter kit.
But, when I ran a poll to ask who was game to wear white on their period, an overwhelming majority responded to say ‘eek, no way!’
This made me so sad

What to wear when you are on your period and you want to wear white
Here is my tried and tested method for being able to wear white on your period. All you need is:
1 x white or light coloured clothing – this could be shorts/jeans/dress/skirt/scrubs;
1 x menstrual cup – my personal favourite is the Dot Cup;
1 x pair of period underwear in a tan or light colour plus you should also choose a seamfree style if you need no visible panty line.
Accessorise the rest of your outfit to taste…and you’re done! What to wear when you are on your period – sorted!

Here is a period-proof white outfit I prepared earlier:
How to stop period leaks: what exact period products I use
My white shorts in this outfit are quite a thick material and they are not super tight, which means I don’t need to be too concerned with choosing a nude coloured pair of period underwear nor do they need to be seamfree.
The period underwear I LOVE to wear under these shorts are the absolutely divine, Modibodi Sensual Hi-Waist Bikini in a light/moderate absorbency, in the colour ‘Grey Mist’. Words cannot express how beautiful these undies are. My gosh, they are so soft and so comfortable, I literally want to wear them every day, not just when I have my period.
BUT, I digress. This pair of Modibodi period underwear cost $29.00 AUD. You can click this link to head straight to the Modibodi website to check them out for yourself.

Don’t forget, if you’re going to buy anything from Modibodi, be sure to read my previous post for all of the latest Modibodi discount codes. Modibodi always have discounts running so you should be able to score a good saving on your purchase.
The menstrual cup I personally love is the Dot Menstrual Cup. You can click this link to head to Amazon to check it out yourself.
Do you need to use both Period Underwear AND a Menstrual Cup?
While technically you should be able to manage with a menstrual cup on its own or period underwear on their own, when it comes to wearing white, I like to double down on the protection and use both.
This provides extra peace of mind and also means I don’t spend the day stressing about whether my period has leaked through to my pants/shorts/skirt/dress.
With the double protection, you won’t need to worry about how to get period stains out or how to get period blood out of your clothes, because there will be no period accidents!
Wearing White Jeans on Your Period: period stained pants are a thing of the past
When deciding what to wear wear when you are on your period, donning white jeans or any white pants, may fall strongly into the “what not to do on your period” category.
But I’m here to tell you that white jeans can officially be period jeans.
Keep period blood out of jeans, just like I did, with the following outfit:
You can use any menstrual cup of your choosing. The menstrual cup I love to use is Dot Cup, you can click this link to buy it on Amazon.
The period-proof underwear I choose to wear under my white jeans are the Modibodi seamfree bikini in tan. The seamfree and tan are great so that the underwear does not show through the jeans. The pair shown in the picture are the light-moderate absorbency, you can also buy these in the moderate-heavy absorbency for extra protection. Click this link to head to the Modibodi website and buy your own.
Don’t forget, if you’re shopping with Modibodi, check out my previous post on all the Modibodi discount codes, so you can save yourself some money.
Wearing white on your period can be done and should be done! I hope this gives you the confidence to try it yourself and rock your favourite white outfits at any time of the month!
