There’s nothing worse than feeling additionally uncomfortable on your period. Prioritise your comfort by wearing something that will let your body breathe. Comfortable underwear is very important.

This works for me and I think it’s a life-saving hack. sometimes on your period, there can be chances to get stained and you do not want to be caught in an awkward position of everyone seeing a red stain on your white or green dress.
It is always safe to wear black on your period to prevent being embarrassed in possible cases of stains.

ALWAYS wear a trouser or tight underneath your skirt. it helps to hold your pad in place, it supports your panties and prevents it from moving out of place.
