Leak-proof absorbency:- 0.5 regular tampons' worth
- 1 pantyliner's worth- 1 teaspoon
- 5 mL
On your cycle: wear this period proof underwear alone on light flow days and spotting or as back up protection on heavier days. It's also great for the "I'm not sure my periods have really ended" kind of days.
For incontinence: will absorb very light bladder leaks that can usually happen when you sneeze, laugh, jump, or run.
For sweat & discharge: great back up for workout, you'll feel fresh and forget about sweat stains showing on your leggings! It's also great for any discharge. It's so comfortable and cute that you might end up wear it every day!
The machine-washable thong panty has a minimum coverage fit with a mid-rise. The soft organic cotton and stretchy lace waistband makes these undies ultra comfortable and you might even not notice the built-in absorbent liner. PLEASE NOTE: the black version has an organic cotton outer layer while the other colors available have a nylon outer layer for extra leak-proof protection.
This style runs true-to-size.

We would never offer a product that we aren't 100% sure are safe for you!
Our panties are being tested not once but twice during production by external laboratories for potentially harmful chemicals, and then again after production. They are certified PFAS-free!
Our products are also always free of silver nanoparticles, and we only use GOTS-certified organic cotton and OEKO-TEX 100 materials.
We also keep them anti-microbial thanks to the layer we use for absorbency inside the underwear: it is a microfiber fabric that contains PHBV/PLA. This fabric naturally fights odors and bacteria. No tricky ingredients added here!
It is basically up to you and your flow!
Our styles with a 4 or 5 tampons' worth of absorbency are absorbent enough to be worn alone even on your heaviest days, but if your flow is extra-heavy, they work great as an reliable backup too, if that makes you feel more comfy and secure.
Our styles with a 0.5 to 3 tampons' worth of absorbency are great to use as back-up to tampons/pads/cups/etc or alone on lighter days.
We decided to differentiate our absorbency by the number of regular tampons' worth of liquid they can absorb. For each of our styles, you'll see the number of tampons associated.
Choose the highest absorbency if your flow is heavy and you want to free bleed wearing them alone. If you have a lighter flow, or just want a backup to wear with a cup or tampon, our lighter absorbency styles might be just what you're looking for.
Here’s a quick rundown:
4-5 tampons' worth of absorbency: Equivalent to 40-50mL. When to use: Alone on your heavy days - usually on the second and third day of your period when your flow is the heaviest. Also in the first week of postpartum. Or if you have medium bladder leaks.
2-3 tampons' worth of absorbency: Equivalent to 20-25ml. When to use: Alone on your light-moderate period days, or as back-up on your moderate-heavy days. Also great for postpartum (after the first week), or for light bladder leaks.
0.5 tampon's worth of absorbency: Equivalent to 5ml. When to use: Alone on light period days (usually the last day of your periods, or when you aren't sure they are coming yet or they are truly gone!), as backup to other products, or for sneaky leaks, sweat & discharge.
It depends on your flow!
The styles with a 4 or 5 tampons' worth of absorbency were designed to last all day or overnight even on heavy days for most women. But if your flow is extra-heavy, you may need to have to change them once.
After you develop some experience with them, you should be able to feel when they start being full and need a change. They will wick moisture less quickly and start feeling damp. That should be your cue to change them!
But you can definitely wear them for as long as you feel comfortable, even overnight.
We do not recommend wearing them for more than 12 hours for hygienic reasons.
No diaper or pad feel here! Though they contain 4-layers, these are utlra-thin so that our undies are not too bulky but actually breezy. They should feel like regular underwear (if not better!)
The leak-proof layers work together to wick away moisture and odors to keep you dry & fresh, while absorbing the liquid. You won't feel any wetness.
Nope. Not at all!
Our undies have an organic cotton inner layer in the crotch - the one touching your skin - that is wicking the liquid inside very quickly (so that you also feel dry!). Once the liquid reaches the second layer made of microfiber, the PHBV/PLA inside works on fighting bacteria and odors to keep you fresh and odor-free.
Just make sure to care for them properly and wash them to keep things fresh.
Numbers are in: an average menstruator uses 5 to 15 thousand pads and tampons in a lifetime. And the vast majority of them will end up in landfills and oceans, and will take 500 years to decompose as they are mainly made of plastic and chemicals. So basically they'll be on your planet much longer than you will.
That’s a whole lot of waste that can be avoided by switching to reusable period panties. And they will also make you save money with all the single-use disposable products you won't have to buy each month anymore.
Thongs are my go-to undies for all time, too bad they can only do as backup on my heavy flow days but thats okay. I like the feel of this Olivia design; the lace is appealing and the cotton fabric provides great comfort.
I like the thick lace and the minimal crotch area,I feel so sexy wearing them and theyre perfect for those days when you're starting to feel more vibrant that the period is almost over. These are my perfect thongs.
Well, I must say that this thong is incredible. I use a period cup and it leaks every time! And this thong has been my savior! Loving it and hope to see more designs on this store because I am planning to switch cup and use period undies from now on.
I'm so inlove with this! I purchased this with the Bikini and high waist. This is my pre-period or discharge undies, especially when I go to the gym. I can move freely not worrying about anything at all.
These babies are reliable! Especially during the beginning and end of my period, because I only have very light flow on those days. But during my heavy flow, I always use the Mia Bikini. These are great and very wonderful panties! So much love it!
