I should start off this review by saying I typically never write reviews. But being allergic to pads and tampons I have tried many brands of period underwear and feel I might have something to add. (For anyone who has never tried any: get some. They will change your life)
I’ll start off with the negative.
Why is the padding in the front so short? This is a problem with any brand of period underwear I have tried so far. I cannot be the only person with a period who bleeds more towards the front than back? It is baffling to me. I keep having to pull the pants up higher to get the coverage I need in the front, which make them ill-fitting all around. I know WUKA have other styles that do have extra coverage in the front, but those are all aimed for (extra) heavy flows, I only have a light-medium flow so I don’t want to be wearing thicker padding, I just want it longer in the front.
Second negative, I trusted other reviews and ordered 2x up from my normal size (usual L, I ordered 2XL) and they fit perfectly. I’m my opinion that sizing is very misleading. Again this does happen with other brands as well. Unlike what the designers of these underwear think, I do not need them to fit any tighter than my regular underwear.
Now on to the positives.
The WUKA period pants are really comfortable. They are softer than some others I have tried (although not the softest in my collection). The thong in particular is very flattering on and I would dare say I even feel sexy wearing them. And on top of that the price point of these underwear is extremely reasonable. Besides ModiBodi, WUKA is probably my favourite brand I’ve tried so far. (ModiBodi is softer, but also pricier + they use wool so I can only wear their vegan range as I’m allergic to wool as well)
Long story short: I’m a fan of the WUKAs but I wish they made their high waist underpants in a light flow version + added longer padding in the front of the thongs.
I really wasn’t sure about these when I ordered them. My periods are really heavy. I normally wear tampons but I’m changing every few hours and I often leak.
Theses nickers are a game changer! I honestly felt very comfortable in there. I even forgot I was on my period some times.
I thought you’d be able to feel a bit damp but nope always so dry.
So easy to wash as well.
I’m now going to order some for my teenage daughter
Thank you so much!!
At 25 I can't believe I have only just found these yet am so happy that the next 25 years of my life will be so easy.
Honestly, these are amazing. I wore the medium flow hipsters on the first day of my period (usually a little unpredictable) and my flow was heavier than normal. The pants held up perfectly. I usually would have used st least 4 tampons - but used just one pair of pants. Washed them, hung them to dry, wore the thong at night, by morning they were dry and ready to go again.
Wow!!! Thank you so much for what you are doing.
