Introducing the tampliner
Invented by a gynaecologist
The tampliner was invented by a gynaecologist after 30 years of listening to patients – and it shows. Every detail is made with care, from the soft mini-liner to our absorbent organic cotton tampon. Even the virtual applicator is made with breathable, medical-quality material that works with your body.

- How is a tampliner different from a normal tampon?
Tampliners are a completely new femcare product. They have three parts: an organic cotton tampon, an organic cotton mini-liner, and a virtual applicator that connects the two. Wearing a tampliner feels quite different from using a normal tampon. The mini-liner is worn folded between your labia, giving you extra protection against leaks. The tampon and mini-liner are connected by a breathable virtual applicator. This is made from a medical-grade, ultra-thin film that you wear inside your vagina, keeping the mini-liner in place.
Inserting and removing tampliners is different from using a normal tampon. See the next two questions for more detail.
- It’s worn “folded between my labia” – where is that exactly?
Your labia are your vaginal lips. The mini-liner should be worn folded and tucked up between your labia.
Everyone’s body is unique and labia come in many shapes and sizes, so the mini-liner will look slightly different on each person. It might be totally hidden between your labia or it might peep out slightly, but it shouldn’t be worn flat against your underwear. The virtual applicator (transparent bit) should be totally hidden inside your vagina.
- What is a virtual applicator?
The virtual applicator is very different from the ones you find on applicator tampons. The virtual applicator is made from an ultra-thin film – the same material that’s used in the medical industry, so it’s totally safe. It connects to the tampon at one end and the mini-liner at the other, and it stays inside your body the entire time you’re wearing a tampliner. It keeps your finger clean as you insert the tampon and also neatly wraps the used tampon as you remove it. Unlike an ordinary applicator, it’s mess-free!
- How do I know what absorbency to use?
Tampliners come in Regular, Super and Super Plus absorbencies. You should use the same tampliner absorbency that you would for tampons. The mini-liner is the same size on all absorbencies. The virtual applicator increases in size with each absorbency so that it can comfortably hold the tampon on removal.

When to use tampliners
Some people find tampliners perfect for heavier flow days, when a tampon alone isn’t enough. Others wear tampliners on lighter days when they don’t need an extra pad, or for extra protection without bulkiness during exercise.Read more
What our customers say
I really enjoy using tampliners – though that seems odd to say about a period care product! They just WORK. I have a notoriously heavy flow and used to have to pair heavy flow tampons with a pad to deal with leaking. I now use a super plus tampliner alone and it works very well for me – and saves me money. I like how the tampon wraps itself on its way out, too – it makes period care less messy, which is great!Hannah E, London
It took a while getting used to these but now that I’ve been using them since November , I can’t imagine going back to another brand! At first, I couldn’t get my head around the shape and application (I’m lazy and have always used tampons with applicators). But these are great, I’ve tested them on holiday, both on the beach and in the pool, and they really are fantastic.Alicja L, Kent
I’m happy to see that the tampon retracts back into the little pouch, keeping things clean and hygienic. The tampliner never ceases to amaze me.Astrid V, London
This product has changed my life! No more worrying about leaking or embarrassing pads rustling or feeling like I’m wearing a nappy! So easy to use and discreet. Would definitely recommend to anyone!Lauren B, Norfolk
