Women will save up to £2 on the garments on average – up to 16 per cent – from today following the pledge to ditch the tax in the last autumn statement.

It follows a two-year campaign by brands, retailers, women’s groups and environmentalists, when the so-called “tampon tax” was dropped from other period products such as pads, tampons and menstrual cups.

However, a 20% tax on period pants, which are designed to be worn as an alternative, continued as they were classified as garments.
