A lot of period underwear is bulky, especially in the gusset (the crotch area). Therefore, you might feel like you’re wearing a thick pad. Yoni underwear is very thin and super-absorbent. This makes them comfortable and flexible, allowing you to forget your wearing special underwear during your period.

Depending on your flow Yoni Period Proof Underwear can replace tampons, pads, liners and cups or be worn with tampons and cups for extra protection. Our current underwear absorbs 30ml of liquid, which is approximately as much as three normal tampons’ or pads’ worth of fluid. Be aware that the absorbency layer from the underwear needs one or two days to dry after washing. Therefore, you need more than one pair to cover all your mentruatial flow.
Yoni Period Proof Underwear is reusable and easy to use. You can wear it, wash it at the washing machine and wear it again. Depending on your flow, it can totally replace the disposable products like liners, pads and tampons or it can be used as back up by using it in combination with tampons or a cup. For first timers, we recomend trying Period Proof Underwear at night to get use to the feel of wearing an underwear for your period and to determine how much coverage the underwear gives to your flow. The ultra-thin absorbent layer is made from microfelt followed by a leak-proof layer to keep you dry and protect you from leaking. Take a look at our Period Proof Underwear page to learn more.
