About Ruby Love
Ruby Love is primarily marketed as a women’s period underwear and swimwear brand, enabling women to ditch harmful and wasteful tampons. The brand also believes in instilling confidence by providing secure, odor-free, and comfortable leak protection. They also offer men’s boxer briefs for those who experience incontinence.
The brand has received a lot of attention and has been featured in People, Teen Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Self, Allure, Health, Forbes, Hello Giggles, Daily Mail, Bustle, Refinery 29, and many more media platforms. Plus, their Instagram page has almost 45k followers.
This Ruby Love period underwear review will provide an overview of the brand, what women think about their period underwear, information on promotions, and details about the company, to help you decide if their products are worth the buy.
Overview of Ruby Love
Ruby Love was first founded by Crystal Etienne in 2015 as PantyProp. After assisting her daughter through the ups and downs of period-care, she developed an organic cotton liner that is built into a dry-tech mesh panty to stop leaks in all directions. The liner also allows for maximum absorption, and most importantly, peace of mind.
Currently, the brand still produces the same helpful products with the addition of swimwear, sleepwear, activewear, bundles, and plus-size options. The products are made with organic cotton padding and multiple layers of protection in each product, making this brand a convenient purchase for the more conscious consumers.
The brand also provides a feminine hygiene and wellness blog to keep women informed on the latest trends in period-care. For instance, you could read up on the Ruby Love Yoni Pearls review on their blog to learn more about how the vaginal cleansing product can be harmful.

Ruby Love wants to be your one-stop-shop for period wear, which includes underwear and swimwear.

Their kits and bundles include multiple pairs of undies and other items that might be useful during that time.
We’ll take a look at the highlights in each of these Ruby Love collections, so you can get a clear sense of what they offer.
Ruby Love Period Underwear Review
All of the Ruby Love period underwear aims to provide secure, 100% leak-proof protection, featuring two layers of 100% cotton and dry-tech mesh. Ruby Love believes that you should live out your period days your way. They provide multiple styles so you can wear what you like, sleep how you like, and even exercise without worry.
This Ruby Love period underwear review will go over three best selling period underwear types:
Ruby Love Period Underwear Teen Review
Getting your period is a special time, but it can also be scary. Figuring out what to do, feeling comfortable and secure, and dealing with bouts of embarrassment, are all stresses young girls face during this new time. For some, tampons can be very uncomfortable. They also carry a slew of negative side effects, like the possibility of Toxic Shock Syndrome, itchiness, and soreness.
The Period Underwear Teen option can be worn with the Ruby Love Double-Sided leak-proof pads, or any other pad, tampon, or menstrual cup. The underwear has a center panel that keeps their Double Sided Pads from sliding, no matter what.
This hip-hugging underwear has a low-rise fit, featuring an 82% ITY knit blend and 18% spandex. They come in 12 different colors to choose your favorite shade. The Period Underwear Teen style is $19 per pair.
Ruby Love Period Underwear Bikini Review
This Ruby Love bikini style provides discreet 100% all day coverage. The bikini style has less material around the sides, so they are a great choice regardless of your outfit. The soft material is ultra-comfortable and breathable to keep you feeling fresh.
Similar to their other styles, this underwear can be worn with the Ruby Love Double-Sided Pad, or any other pad, tampon, or menstrual cup. The underwear guarantees a 100% leak-proof protection that is super discreet, with a center panel that keeps pads from sliding.
These bikini panties feature a mid-rise fit with a high-cut leg. The fabric of the Period Underwear Bikini is 82% ITY knit blend and 18% spandex. These undies come in 24 fun colors to choose from! This style is also available in Ruby Love period panties plus sizes, retail for $20 per pair.
Ruby Love Period Underwear Hipster Review
With a low-rise cut, the Period Underwear Hipster style lets you wear low-rise jeans or skirts with ease. The brand’s underwear is designed to take your mind off of your period, and leave you free to live your life without having to constantly think about your monthly visitor.
The fabric of the Period Underwear Hipster is 82% ITY knit blend and 18% spandex. Like all of their other styles, the hipster style can also be worn with the Ruby Love Double-Sided Pad, or any other pad, tampon, or menstrual cup. They have a center panel in them that keeps the Double-Sided Pad from sliding, regardless of how active you are.
It’s important not to use fabric softener to maintain the quality and effectiveness of these panties. The Period Underwear Hipster style comes in 14 different colors for $20 per pair.
Ruby Love Period Swimwear Review
Every Ruby Love swimsuit provides three tampons worth of protection, and when you pair them with the Double-Sided Liner, you get six tampons worth of protection.
Each swimsuit is designed so there’s no swelling in the water and no liquids spill out, thanks to the dry-tech mesh that stops leaks from all directions.
This Ruby Love period underwear review will showcase their most popular swimwear to help prevent horror stories before they happen.
Ruby Love Period Swimwear Racerback Review
This Period Swimwear Racerback swimsuit is a classic. Everyone should own an LBS (little black swimsuit). This suit will set you up for success, no matter what type of water-based activity you do. If you believe it, you can do it in this swimsuit from Ruby Love.
Never skip out on the beach, or going in the water, with this style that features a front scoop neck and a criss-cross racerback. The racerback suit is made from 80% nylon and 20% spandex, with a 100% cotton liner. This style is available in 9 different colors and patterns for $90.
Ruby Love Period Swimwear Tank Set Review
This adorable striped Period Swimwear Tank Set is bright and happy, and may just make you the cutest little starfish sprawled on the beach.

The Swimwear Tank Set is made from 80% nylon and 20% spandex, with a 100% cotton liner for $80. Feel confident and secure in one of the 11 available colors.
Ruby Love Period Swim Bottom Review

This bundle comes with three pairs of Ruby Love period underwear. Seamless means you can wear these babies under anything—yes, that slip dress is an option now! With their 100% protection guarantee, you can look and feel your best without having to think about your period.
The Bliss underwear style hugs your curves and is completely no-show under clothing. These underwear have a more relaxed fit, so if you’d like them a little tighter, the brand suggests sizing down. You can select either the hipster or bikini style for your bundle.
This Ruby Love period underwear review notes that you can choose only one style per bundle and colors are chosen at random, but if you love a certain color, you can let them know in the box under the size selection tool. These pairs offer the same protection as their other styles, but with a second-skin feel.
To care for these undies, the brand recommends machine washing on cold without softener or bleach. Tumble dry on low, or hang to dry. Make sure that you do not iron this garment. The Bliss Seamless Period Underwear Bundle is $60, regularly $75.

Ruby Love Reviews: What Do Customers Think?
Ruby Love has a 4.7/5-star rating on the review website, Trustpilot. 87% of customers rate the brand as ‘Excellent’. One of the many positive Ruby Love reviews says, “I dig my Ruby Love panties…No need for panty liners anymore! And no more worry about leaking through. I wish I had these in high school.”
A review on MenstrualCupReviews notes this on Ruby Love vs Thinx: “Ruby Love is great in that they offer so many different colors and patterns and lovely swimwear, are affordable and have amazing gift box sets.
Thinx is fantastic as some of their styles offer absorption of up to 4 regular tampons worth of menstrual fluid, whereas Ruby Love only offers 2 and a half for their Period Panties range.”
In regards to Ruby Love vs Knix, The New York Times did a comparison of some of the top period underwear brands and said, “Of all the pairs we tested, those from Knix felt the most like regular underwear: They were notably less bulky…However, testers found that these undies also felt less secure.”
A few of the negative Ruby Love period underwear reviews state that their products do not work, and complain of the lack of return policy. This one says, “The panties fit, but the absorbent liner stops too low for her. The panties leaked horribly. The liner was clean because the leaking happened over top of it and through the stretchy fabric onto the clothing.”
One of the Ruby Love swimwear reviews found most helpful was on Hello Giggles. The author wrote, “A period-absorbing swimsuit is a great backup option to have in your closet just in case…The only thing that made me slightly uncomfortable is that I could visually tell that the pad was there when I lay down.”
Is Ruby Love Period Underwear Worth It?
In terms of comparisons between brands, Ruby Love stands strong and comes with its strengths. This Ruby Love period underwear review loves their menstruation kits and their mission to make girls feel less awkward and ashamed about their periods.
While their lack of return policy is unfortunate, it’s pretty standard for intimates (even non-period varieties). Some (very few) reviews say the underwear doesn’t work/ does not stop leaks. There are other brands that offer more coverage and thicker built-in pads, so if you have a heavy flow, Ruby Love is likely not the brand for you.
Overall, the brand has very high ratings and the majority of reviews vouch for the period underwear’s success at preventing and securing leaks. On top of that, their products are made in the US. For these reasons, our Ruby Love period underwear review believes the brand is worth the buy.
