I bought some of these as a birthday present for a friend and for myself (after we had a chat about whether period pants would be any good!). We're both used to using menstrual cups and/or cloth pads. And we both think the pants are brilliant - absorbent and comfortable to wear all day. Much better than pads sliding around everywhere. I'll be sticking to my cup for heavier days of my cycle, but I'm definitely going to get some more of these (or the lighter flow versions) for spotting days and for wearing at night.
I was hesitant to get period pants as I get extremely heavy periods and I could not see how pants would not leak, I am 42 yrs old and also thought perhaps they were more aimed at teens who get lighter periods. I went for supper with a friend who sung the praises of WUKA Wear so thought I would give it a go and I can not recommend them more, I have not leaked once. I have a heavy flow pair, medium, and light, with how heavy mine is I think I need a second heavy and medium pair to be able to get through my whole period without using anything else or having to wash and dry them to reuse immediately but for a normal period, you would not need all this. They are comfortable, especially for nighttime, and I will definitely be buying them for my girls when they reach that age. I would recommend these regardless of your ethics, even if you do not care about sustainability as they are so much nicer to wear than sanitary towels and Tampax.
Ordered my first pair of Wuka period free underwear set last month. Because I was trying such underwear for the first time, I did some basic research to figure out which one should I order and Wuka topped my list! I am a menstrual cup user and on days of medium/heavy flow, it leaks a bit. Before Wuka I used panty liners I was always gutted when using them with a cup. Wuka rescued me! It is comfortable to wear the briefs, I ordered a high waist and brief (both medium flow) to test how it feels. I must say, not once I thought about staining and had a really comfortable, plastic-free, and minus odor period. Especially on the first two days when bloating is at its peak, the high wait brief was quite handy because it gave a great cushion to my belly, I am definitely going to order another of these.
