I wondered why so many women during their menstruation felt they had little options aside from painkillers, often reaching for them even when they did not want to. I became interested in finding other options that could alleviate the pain. We all know that heat can relieve many women of pain, but hot water bottles, warm blankets and other options are far from convenient. People have busy days with work, school, children and hobbies. It is not practical to simply take a hot shower, bath or simply relax on the sofa snuggled in a warm blanket.

I decided to make something that provides that soothing, relaxing warmth more convenient.

How does it work?

The heat helps to relax the pelvic floor muscles

There are several types of menstrual pain. Most often women suffer from pain caused by ulterine contractions. Because of this the uterus does not receive sufficient blood supply (the blood that normally flows in our bodies, not menstrual blood).

To relieve such pain, it is necessary to remove tension in the muscles at the given place, to perfuse the tissue and to oxidize it better. Tension can be removed or alleviated in many ways and heat is one of them.


Several studies have confirmed comparable effects of local heat and analgesics (painkillers). However, heat has one huge advantage - it has no side effects.

How does it work?

The bodysuit gently warms up the lower abdomen

The bodysuit is quilted with a special silver thread in the area of ​​the lower abdomen connected to a replaceable battery. After you connect the battery, the silver threads will start gently warming up and the battery can be stored in a small pocket sewn to the side. Because I tried to ensure that the bodysuit is as discreet as possible, the battery pack dimensions are less than 3 x 1.5 x 1 inch (7 x 4 x 2 cm). It provides about 40 minutes of heat on one charge, and thanks to the fact that you get two batteries in the package, you can extend the heating for almost an hour and a half, wherever you are. They can charge as easily as your phone, taking about an hour to replenish fully.

You can wear the bodysuit hidden under the T-shirt, but it is not necessary. Feel free to simply put on a jacket, add your favourite skirt, and head out.
