Can you swim with just period swimwear?

Absolutely. Designs vary, but period swimwear works like period pants or period leggings without screaming to others that you're wearing them. Brands use highly absorbent and waterproof materials, like nylon and spandex, and feature water-repelling qualities so that you can swim without fear. 

Check the brand for quality and materials before purchasing and make sure the pants are breathable with leak-proof gussets and (if possible) extended liners for peace of mind.
