What about stretch, slippage and gusset size?
WUKA Period Wear fabric has plenty of 4-way stretch, meaning it’s forgiving on your body as you move about during the day. It’s less likely to leave a line or feel clammy and tight than your usual underwear or a pad.
The waistband has a lot of stretch which means a gentle, comfortable fit but is less likely to slip as it has a large surface contact area.
The gusset has a 25 – 27cm long absorbant fabric gusset. This is big! This means that whether you front, middle, back bleeder we have more than enough absorbancy for your flow. As the absorbant layers are integrated into the underwear you can relax that there will be no movement like the pad.
