What could be more beautiful than a young girl with her first period who feels calm, confident and powerful? We are passionate about our daughters and yours stepping bravely onto the path towards becoming a wahine with all the support and love they need guiding them to their own knowledge of womanhood.
It absolutely makes our day when we hear stories of young girls feeling confident and empowered while on their ikura, especially when using AWWA period underwear means they feel relaxed about going to school with their period.
Here are some of the many comments by mothers and nannas that have made us feel a little choked up and brought a few tears to the eye!
We hope that you find reassurance here that teen period underwear are a simple, easy to use and reliable way of handling first periods. Grab a 3 pack in cottons or the Eva Brief and add a wet-bag to keep in the school bag, for all month confidence! No tampons, no pads, no waste, no toxins... just 'slip on and go' period products for teens.
If you have ANY questions please reach out and ask, and check out our period starter kits for teens.
What AWWA customers say about period underwear for teens
"Great for first timers. My daughter had a pair in her period pack for when the time comes. Her friend got hers at school last week and wasn’t prepared so my daughter gave her the underwear. The mother was so amazed at the idea of them and bought her daughter a 3 pack." - Kim
"I recently bought a 3-pack for my 13 year old, to be prepared for when her period started. Her first period arrived yesterday (good timing mum!) and she’s happily gone off to school today in her I am Eva’s, with a spare in her school bag, tucked into the styley wet bag. The whole experience has been so simple and positive - quite different from my first period, with massive pads that didn’t fit or work properly. So happy to be part of the revolution!" - Ruth
"Perfect for my 11 yr old . She loves them & finds them so comfy. Thanks for making an awesome product!" - Lynne

"This is my 2nd purchase for a special girl who is waiting on her Ikura. To celebrate the arrival of her Ikura I've put together a celebration Ikura Kete for her with all sorts of taonga for her including her AWWA's!!! I think these are great for our young hine as they learn about what their amazing bodies can do." - Carissa
