I purchased my first pair after seeing an ad. I was already on the reusable path of period protection, with a different brand using pads. I prefer resusble products because I have a super heavy flow and was between 50-60 disposable pads per cycle.
But I was still struggling with coping with my heavy flow, particularly flooding with reusable pads.
WUKA has been the only period product to ever come close to meeting that need. Their absorbency is top notch and unrivalled.
The pants comfortable, easy to wash, and aren't ugly! I am size 20, bit of a belly. I purchased 3xls in:
Ultimate Midi Brief Heavy Flow
The only 2 drawbacks for me are the sizing is sometimes off with some designs - I found the Ultimate to fit really well, but the adjustable Flex ones not so well. They aren't a good fit with my body shape. I have also found that the bikini cut ones just don't come high enough for me which is likely due to my body shape too. The Basics Hipster also feel the same. The poor fitting ones are a bit annoying as they're quite uncomfortable. I can wear them and do, but I will have to buy more Ultimate Midis. I think a size up in the other cuts would have been better, but it's an expensive test!
They can take a bit of time to dry but faster in the sun or on a radiator.
Overall though, so worth the switch, and the customer service staff are really lovely!
