“These pants are life changing. I wish I had these as a teen and I really wish I’d had these after the birth of my three children. I will for sure be buying more and thank you for creating something so comfy, clever and hassle free” - A., Review of WUKA Leopard Print High Waist Heavy Flow
WUKA continued being a pioneer with the launch of the world's first ever multi-size period pants! WUKA Flex, launched in May 2022 with a handy adjustable straps that allows you to change the size of your pants up to four sizes with ease.
Following the success of Flex, we continued with another world-first: WUKA Stretch - the first full coverage multi-size period pant made with Stretch™ technology- buttery soft and super secure in medium & heavy flow.
Stretch was so successful, we sold out in the first week!
Don't believe the hype? Hear it from a fan...
Turns out you’re also an active bunch
…who can #tackleanything
This year we tackled huge period taboos in sports by sponsoring the Women’s Welsh Rugby League. Seeing WUKA branding on BBC sport was a huge milestone and we are so proud to see more girls and women entering the world of sports—carrying on with our recent partnership with Watford FC.
“Wore these at the gym for the first time, what a great addition to my WUKA collection. They were comfortable, fitted well and didn’t move during my exercises. Felt really secure in them with no worries. Had some errands to run after the gym and they were a joy to walk around in too. Great product.” - K.M

Ruby Raut, WUKA CEO and Co-Founder at the Sky Zero Footprint Awards.
It's fair to say 2022 has been one helluva year - full of firsts, milestones and successes. The WUKA tribe has been expanding in full force- online and offline- and we cannot wait to meet more of you in 2023.
The UK's no.1 period pant brand is taking on the world and everyone is welcome to join us for the ride so do help us spread the word. It will take more than a pair of pants to change the world but it's a great place to start!
From day one, WUKA was born out of a desire to change people's lives and leave a positive footprint on the planet but we couldn't achieve this without you - our pant-wearing super fans- so THANK YOU for your unwavering support.
Wishing you happy holidays and a joyful new year.
