As a person who loves adventuring, I find periods such a pain! Especially when I do a lot of watersports and camping. I have posted on my social media a lot about how much I love the period swimwear, which allow me to go in the water without having to wear tampons if it's that time of the month.
I was kindly sent some WUKA Cotton Stretch Seamless Period Pants to try as part of their WUKA Cotton On campaign.
I tried the Ultimate™ Bikini - medium flow. This bikini style underwear is high leg and very comfortable. I felt very supported and I was confident that I wouldn't leak - which I didn't. Although I don't generally have a very heavy flow. It feels just like wearing normal underwear but somehow it feels really firm and comfortable. The Ultimate™️ Collection of undies is made from certified Organic Cotton - made from the most sustainable fabrics.
The Bikini Brief period pants are really soft and wash very well. I love being able to completely replace having to use uncomfortable tampons and bulky pads. You can wear the pants for up to 8 hours on all but your heaviest days. It holds at least 15 ml of period flow or light leaks / 2-3 tampons' worth.
Cotton Stretch™ pants
I also tried a pair of Midi Brief Black Stretch Cotton - heavy flow. These new Cotton Stretch™ pants are fantastic as they are both stretchy and seamless. These fab pants fit four sizes, XL, 2XL, 3XL and 4XL with no VPL! 40% of clothes bought online are returned because of sizing issues. WUKA created Stretch so that you can get your perfect size the first time.
If you have sensitive skin you will also be especially interested in these. The Cotton Stretch™ are breathable, moisture-wicking and super comfy - with the added benefits of cotton, making them even softer on the skin and even more perfect for keeping infections at bay, thanks to natural hypoallergenic properties. The underwear offers a healthier alternative by being chemical-free, promoting comfort, and reducing the risk of skin-related issues associated with menstrual products.
Why is wearing period pants a good idea?
If you want to go about your life as usual without worrying about using tampons, pads and menstrual cups, you can with reusable period pants. Many traditional sanitary pads contain plastic and harsh chemicals that can lead to skin irritations and rashes. One pair of WUKA pants replaces 200 single-use pads and tampons. You can wear them for up to 12hrs and they are odour free too. Just wear, wash and repeat.
Who is WUKA ?
WUKA is a female-led start up, making the UK's first ever reusable and leak-proof period wear. WUKA stands for Wake Up Kick Ass because they believe that nothing should hold you back on your period. They believe that periods should not cost the earth.
They are the brand that led to removal of period pants tax, making period underwear 20% cheaper since Jan 2024. They strive to empower anyone that bleeds by improving access to quality, sustainable period products, eliminating period poverty, and breaking the taboos and stigma surrounding periods.
