One of our main missions is to encourage an open discussion about periods. As fans of Gemma Correll’s ‘Menstrual Island’ and 'Madame Ovary', we wanted to discuss periods in a fun and empowering way.
Gemma Correll X WUKA tells the story of Ruby Raut, CEO and Co-Founder of WUKA Period Pants after she left Nepal and realised that in the U.K. there were no reusable period products that were comfortable or sustainable. As an environmental scientist, Ruby started her research to create WUKA, the UK’s first reusable period underwear.
"The scientist dogs" actually exist: Mochi and Pi are daily at WUKA Headquarters. 🐶

I would like to preface this with the fact that I find these pants revolutionary. No more bulky pads or uncomfortable moon cups, on the whole they are awesome. The only thing I have found is that around the leg they are tight and uncomfortable. I ordered a size L originally and found them wayyy too tight in this area and had a free set sent out to me after mine were lost in the post (awesome job WUKA) but the size XL is still a bit uncomfortable in this area. I wear a size 12-14 usually so I can't see myself wearing anything bigger than what I have atm. Is it just the style of pants, do I need to wear them in or are they just not the right thing for me? any experience from others in this area (if there is any) would be awesome x
After trying Wuka pants, I tried WUKA Ultimate™ High Waist - Heavy Flow for my mom's weak bladder and haven’t heard a single complaint. She said they were very snug (Size 12 /14 in large) and did just the trick. I'm shocked to say these pants are not only good for periods but also super absorbent for Urinary Incontinence.
I am a UK size 16 and bought size XL These pants are so comfortable! It took me a while to eventually cross over to period pants (I've only ever been a pad wearer, never gotten on with tampons) I've had leaking accidents in the past with pads so always been a little worried it might be worse with period pants. I definitely wanted to buy the best and Wuka seemed the top in most reviews - so I made the investment. So glad I did, these pants are the most comfortable underwear I've ever owned! Some people asked me if it's like wearing a nappy.. which it definitely isn't. It feels more subtle than wearing a pad but more secure as it can't move or become unstuck. I bought the 3 pack to wear the first day and last couple days of my period and haven't leaked at all! It's so nice not to have that anxious feeling every time you stand up...
I only wished Wuka had a different colour than black that I could order that I could wear on my last day so I know when I've nearly stopped bleeding so I don't wear more period pants than I need to. Because of the black fabric and how well they absorb the blood it's hard to tell when you're at the end of your period (getting lighter). They are perfect thank you Wuka 🩸❤️

I've never leaked whilst wearing these - I save my heavy flow pair for my day 2 (the notorious day 2!) and I don't get that panicky feeling when I stand up and look back at the seat that I might've leaked. Perfect! Thanks Wuka 🩸❤️
P.s. when are you making a everyday version of these pants 😁
I love the wuka brand and concept and have a few of their lace ones as well as the thong, all in size M. For the lace ones size M is perfect, but for the thong an M might as well be XXS. Size up, but by several sizes. Otherwise it's brilliant
Bought on earth Day. Glad I did. These are gorgeous but equally efficient period pants. I find these on generous side I normally take 2xl on seamless range but this one I got xl and fits perfectly. I'm around UK 16. Super absorbent. I got it on around 8pm and worn till morning on my heaviest day and no leaks. Absolutely impressed. They're soft too and not too bulky. Customer service is great to boot. I've got no hassle returning or exchanging items.
I now own 6 pairs for my entire cycle, and I convinced my sister to get on the band wagon.
I tried the menstrual cup but it's just not for me, and these are a amazing, comfortable, easy to use. Perfect.
The seamless panties are by far my favourite option. I wish they had more colors...
Since having my children my periods are so heavy! I don’t like to leave the house as I’m changing tampons or pads less than every hour! I can’t sleep as I wake up worrying I’ve leaked. These knickers have honestly changed my life! (This sounds very dramatic) I have saved so much money on sanitary products too, if your worried about the price they honestly are worth it.
I saw an ad for one of these on social media and thought it would be great for winter as I often carry around a hot water bottle with me to keep warm as I always seem to be freezing. I purchased a couple at first and gave one away as a gift for Christmas and have worn mine day in and day out in throughout the whole of winter. I can hide it under jumpers and do zoom calls with it on. I have recommended it to a friend who refers to it as 'her warm hug' and has bought one for each of her daughters. I cannot recommend them enough!
Thanks you, this period pants are really comfortable.
No leaks and not wet sensation.
There are all possible size and shape.
I now have 3 pairs and hope to buy some more soon. So much more comfortable than other period products, and much less faff!
Easy to wash and just pop on for day or night wear.
I do wish more people would wear them. Hopefully they will! Which will mean less waste on landfills and periods made a little easier to cope with.
Absolutely love these! They're so comfy, and you can very easily forget that their period underwear. Completely changed my period. Easy to clean and wash, and they look just like regular underwear whilst on. I moved to these from reusable pads, and I much prefer these. No need to worry about them moving around or leaking!
I originally ordered the Ultimate High Waist Super Heavy Flow period pants in small as I am a size 8 UK and take a small in everything. They were too small on me as I wasn’t aware that it is recommended to go up a size in this particular style.
I thought that I was out of luck but got in contact with customer service and was able to send them back for an exchange. I sent the products to them and they quickly sent me size medium with absolutely no hassle. So great that this company stands by their products and offers such great customer service. I’m so happy that they took the time to help me and send me the correct size! Thank you so much!
Now that I have the correct size I can say that these period pants are amazing! They’re quite thick and very absorbant so I use them exclusively at night and when I’m around the house. They’re very comfy and so absorbant! I feel confident wearing them and know that I will not leak! Thank you so much to the WUKA team!
Hi again, just have some feedback for you. I've just been brave and went all day 9hrs from 8 am - 5 pm at work with only your super heavy flow pants and they were great! No leaks and I was well impressed. Just changed to a fresh pair and feels amazing.
I love my leggings so much and the material is so cosy!
