Do you do anything differently when you’re on your period? Do you have specific undergarments that you save for that time of the month? I know I am so bloated and uncomfortable during mine that the thought of squeezing into something tight and firm sounds somewhat unappealing, however- because I feel so bloated and uncomfortable I think knowing I’m wearing beautiful lingerie would make me feel better about things!
Tell me how you handle this!
That’s a very valid question! I obviously want to be as comfortable as possible during my period so extra firm foundations and tight waistbands are out of the question. I also become really irritable so trying to do up 14 straps in the morning isn’t usually a problem, but it has resulted in a mini strop in the past!
I like to wear super light girdles during this time as they are stretchy, allow a lot of movement, and they don’t compress my bloated tummy at all. Basically I want to wear something that is minimal fuss – I can just pull it on, and do up the clips really easily. If I bloat even more during the day, then the girdle will stretch with me. I would also suggest going for something that doesn’t require too many zips, clasps etc. as you will obviously need to undo these more frequently during the day and this might become frustrating.
I usually wear these vintage girdles:

And if you want to be super retro, I currently have some of these babies for sale! (I’m joking, you don’t need to use those!)
I hope this helps!
