You absolutely can wear them postpartum; just be sure to keep an eye on how much you’re bleeding to avoid any leaks.
Yes, depending on how heavy your cycle is, you can wear them for up to 12 hours.
Yes! The idea can sound unusual, but due to the materials and the merino wool, they are naturally anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, and anti-odour. Plus, they are machine or hand-washable after each use.
Our period underwear comes in a dark colour so the stains won’t show.
Oops! If you accidentally put your period underwear in a dryer don’t worry too much. It might weaken the absorbency layer a little, but they should still be okay if this happens only once. Just make sure to wear and test them out for any leaks when you are able to stay home.
They can hold up to 1 to 2 regular tampon’s worth of blood, which is about 10 ml. You can tell they’re ready for a change when you see blood at the seams of the underwear, or if they feel wet. It can be challenging when you’re first starting out wearing them, so checking frequently can help until you get used to them.
When they are properly maintained and taken care of, they can last for years.
We don’t suggest you wear pads with period underwear. This is because the bottom of pads are waterproof (which would counteract the period underwear) and it would probably be uncomfortable. But if you really want to, you can.
It can be an initial expensive purchase, but if you can afford it, they are cheaper than the monthly cost of disposable period products in the long run.
