This bikini underwear features our unique leak-free technology from front crotch all the way up the back with a medium absorbency - allowing confident coverage, even to back sleepers.
On your cycle: wear this period proof underwear alone on light to medium flow days or as back up protection on your heaviest days.
For incontinence: will absorb 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. You'll just want to wear it any day of the month!
For postpartum: you'll love to wear these once the first heavy flow days following birth have passed. They'll make you feel supported and confident while you're recovering. So much more comfortable than disposable mesh undies and bulky pads!
The machine-washable bikini panty has a semi coverage fit on the hips and bum. The organic cotton fabric makes the absorbent undies soft and comfortable while the elastic waistband allows for a confident and secure wear with no shifting.
This style runs true-to-size.
1. Feel Dry with a soft and breathable organic cotton that absorbs super fast
2. Feel Fresh with an anti-microbial lining that fights bacteria and odors
3. Feel Secure with a super-absorbent fabric that holds up to 5 tampons' worth

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.
Feels secure and comfy overall. I prefer cotton waistbands like this Bikini over laces and this one fits me quite nicely. Has moderate absorbency in them and good coverage. My go-to undies for any day of my period since Im not that heavy when it comes to my flow. What I also appreciate about it is that it never gives me any kind of itch or irritation even when wearing them for extended periods of time.
The organic cotton feels very smooth and soft, with decent absorbency. What I like about it most, is the protective layer goes all the way up the front which gives me confidence to sleep in them on a medium flow day but it doesnt give that bulky feeling.
These had all my doubts cleared. I was looking to buy the Amys but they didnt have stocks at the time so I opted for these Lilys. Theyre highly absorbent and have no uneasy feeling from the overall organic cotton. The fit was good too which is why I appreciate these undies very much.
Did as expected; Covers the crotch and bum, absorbs well and fast so I dont worry about leaks. The fabric is soft and comfortable and it doesn't irritate my skin unlike other brands that Ive used. No PFAS means no health-risk too.
This was my first experience with a period underwear and I’m definitely switching especially for the sustainability part. This didn’t really feel bulky, no discomfort and extra-secured.
