WUKA Heavy Flow Period Underwear
WUKA is your complete tampon and pad replacement!
Wear WUKA Heavy for up to 8 hours on light-medium days, 4-6 hours on your heavy days, or overnight.
WUKA Heavy holds at least 20ml of period flow - around 4 tampons worth.
Made of luxurious, soft and stretchy Lenzing® MicroModal fabric that is CO2 neutral and 3.5x softer than fine cotton. Combined with WUKA’s super absorbent hi-tech fabric and a breathable moisture barrier, WUKA underwear are positively period proof.
The brief style has full coverage at the back without feeling bulky.
100% vegan, WUKA period underwear are registered with the Vegan Society.
How do they work?
WUKA underwear are made of 4 layers of fabric: The inner and outer layers are made of soft, breathable, moisture wicking Lenzing ® MicroModal fabric. The two central layers are made of an ultra absorbent yet breathable fabric that is uniquely used in WUKA underwear to prevent blood from passing through the underwear.
How much blood do they hold?
WUKA Heavy can hold at least 4 tampons worth blood (20ml) - more than any other period underwear currently available.
The underwear has a 25 - 27cm long absorbent fabric gusset, which is big compared to other brands. This means that whether you bleed more at the front, in the middle, or at the back, WUKA has you covered! And because the absorbent layers are integrated into the underwear, you can relax that there won’t be any movement or shifting like with pads.
Are they hygienic?
WUKA underwear are extra hygienic because of the anti-bacterial properties of the inner layers of fabric. These help to prevent odour and bacterial growth. They are also machine washable at 40 degrees, making washing easy and effective.
What’s the best way to wash WUKA underwear?
Machine wash in cold water or at 40°. Go ahead and throw them in with your dark clothes if you want! But always rinse your bloody underwear after wearing and before washing to prevent stains.
Do not tumble dry. Drying tip: As your WUKA underwear have several layers, they take longer to dry than regular underwear. So make sure that your underwear has gone through the full spin while washing. You can also put your underwear near the radiator or dry them in the sun.
Can WUKA underwear be used for other purposes such as urinary incontinence or light bladder leaks or bleeding after giving birth?
Yes, WUKA underwear can be used for many purposes from periods to postpartum discharge, endometriosis flow and bladder leaks.
Where are they designed and manufactured?
They are designed in UK and manufactured in China by a very experienced team who manufacture underwear for many famous brands.
WUKA's manufacturer has ISO standard Audits, BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative) Audits, Confidence in Textiles (Testing for harmful substances) and Walmart certification.
How long will they last?
When cared for properly, WUKA heavy should remain effective for at least 2 years. After that, they will likely become less absorbent than when they were newer. Once they start becoming less absorbent, you can still use them for lighter days.
Available in black only.
