Scarlet is Australia’s new femtech startup that puts period at the heart of women’s health and wellbeing. The brand was born out of a need to change the way we think about our cycle and the products we use from day one.
You are defining a new, full cycle for your period that is better for your body and not costing the world.
Switching to sustainable menstrual care seems so easy on paper! Until you do your research and don’t even know where to start buying, because now you are in the middle of the ocean, surrounded by hundreds of opportunities, peppered with conflicting information. It can be overwhelming and daunting to start your sustainable switch to period underwear so lost – that’s why we’ve put together this handy guide to all of the basics in the Scarlet collection so you can make the right choice for you!
How do they work, you ask?
Well, Scarlet’s revolutionary construction ensures that you feel fresh longer without worrying about suspicious leaks. The moisture wicking material soaks up the liquid, while the superabsorbent layers underneath soak everything up (which is a lot!). Their extra leak-proof layers keep your favorite whites from spoiling, and the final super-soft layer of breathable cotton keeps airflow where it needs to be.

The everyday letter
The Everyday Letter is your companion in everyday life.
Scarlet makes two variations of their signature soft organic cotton:
● Light to moderate for lighter days (worth about two tampons)
● Moderate – difficult for heavier days (approx. Three tampons)
Her Everyday Brief has a classic mid-high bikini silhouette with medium coverage on the hips and bottom. The thin and absorbent “pad” runs from the back to the front to provide more coverage in the front and back as you go about your day.
You can wear these any day of the week that you would wear your regular panties, but if you want to avoid seams on the buttocks, we recommend trying The G String.
The G string
Are you feeling a little flirty? Or maybe tonight’s dress is a no-go for the underwear line – no matter why, The G String is about to become your new best friend. If you scratch your head over how G-string period underwear would ever work, let alone how comfortable it would be to wear, don’t scratch anymore because Scarlet cracked the code.
Tired of enduring full short underwear around the clock just because they are menstruating acts as a high quality menstrual care solution.
The G-String has a light to medium-weight filling (up to 2 tampons) and is made from the characteristic organic cotton.
“Not to brag, but we totally nailed it” – The smart and innovative team at Scarlet.
Prepare to wear these everywhere, maybe as backup protection if you are a little tense with your cup placement or for those daily spotting and lighter flow days. Whether it’s the gym, brunch, or going out, you’ll want to take it with you wherever you go; She is a social butterfly!
The high-waisted seamless
Some days you just can’t do seamlines, and that’s fine if, on an average day, you can reach for Scarlet’s favorite pair of slippery nudes. But what if you’re on the third day of your period and need to put together the perfect outfit?
You know your life doesn’t stop just because you’re on your period, so Scarlet created The High Waisted Seamfree. Instead of the regular super-soft organic cotton, The High Waisted Seamfree is made from a blend of nylon and spandex, so you know it’s stretchy, flexible, and buttery soft.
The High Waisted Seamfree is designed for light to medium flow (approx. Two tampons) and feels smooth on the skin without leaving any visible panty lines. Wear them as backup protection or ride alone on lighter days; This underwear is designed to fit the contours of your body perfectly.
Note: Typically, The High Waisted Seamfree takes two wearing and washing cycles to relax and really take effect.
Now that you know how to wear it, find your flow and shop for the Scarlet Period Underwear collection.
Psst … did you know that there are also menstrual cups, organic cotton tampons, a pH balanced daily cleaner and accessories to support a new menstrual routine?
