You rocked the hipster and bikini style 

Our most popular WUKA period pants were Basics Hipster Medium Flow and Ultimate Bikini Medium Flow. With a flattering high cut leg, super comfy GOTs certified cotton and capable of absorbing 2-3 tampons worth of period blood - why wouldn't you fall in love with this Ultimate Bikini

You went WILD for our new launches

Leopard print WUKA group shot
WUKA launched our first ever print period pants supporting the incredible Kujuwa Initiative. Designed to challenge how women are described - these pants featured a pattern with a difference featuring inspiring affirmations and the words ‘Powerful, Brave, Strong and Fearless’ in the design to remind you of your greatness.

 

We also have a WUKA Two Pocket Wet Bag with the same incredible print that you can use to carry around clean and dirty period pants at the same time! Read more about our fight for women to be seen as more than just sexy here.   


“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 Stretch pants are the world's first full brief, seamless multi-size period pants

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...

“LOVE the one size fits all knickers. I’ve bought 4 pairs of stretch and I am so so happy. They’re the comfiest knickers I’ve ever worn. I don’t even feel like I’m on my period. I’m honestly stunned by how comfortable they are, how nice they feel and how well they protect you.” - H.G,

Turns out you’re also an active bunch 

Welsh Rugby Union

…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.

Also, you did some kick ass workouts wearing our Period Sports Shorts and Period Leggings that launched this year! 

“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
