The Peace of Mind You’re Looking For?
New Step Period Panties are basic menstrual panties offering waterproof protection and a snug fit. They’re designed to be worn with a pad, tampon or cup. They have a breathable, leak-proof coverage area that’s placed toward the back of the panty. The waistband has a high rise, almost reaching the bellybutton, so if you wear mostly pants or skirts with a low-rise waistline, these may not be the period panties for you.

New Step menstrual underwear are made from high-quality 95 percent cotton and 5 percent spandex, and trimmed with French lace. New Step period underwear come in three sizes: extra small, small and medium.
Customers complain that the waterproof lining in these panties makes an audible crinkling sound when you move around, but at least you know that means there is an actual waterproof layer in it (probably PUL, although the manufacturer doesn’t specify). Some customers appreciate the snug fit of these panties for keeping pads in place and protecting against leaks, but they also say that makes these less-than-ideal to wear beneath tight-fitting clothes because panty lines will show.
About the Company
New Step is a Chinese clothing and accessories retailer. I’m unable to find any more information about this company; however, they claim that in China they are known as a very high-quality and reputable brand.
The Bottom Line
I believe that these panties are a good choice, but mainly for overnight protection due to the high waistline and the fact that the waterproof lining is only in the back. The crinkling sound shouldn’t be a problem at night since you aren’t walking around.
