How are period panties made?

A ruler panty is washable and reusable panties, like your everyday lingerie:

  • The bottom composition is divided into layers of absorbent, waterproof, anti-leak and anti-odor fabrics
  • The ruler panties replace disposable tampons and pads, and the menstrual cup
  • All of the blood is absorbed in the bottom of the panties, invisible under clothing.

1 - Layer of tissue in contact with the mucosa (i.e.organic oton for some) to drain the liquid.
2 - Ventilated absorbent layer, anti odor, anti leakage and anti bacterial (cotton or eucalyptus fibers)
3 - Waterproof membrane in PUL (Polyester) anti leaks

How long to wear it?

Period panties are made to last all day:

>> We put on the menstrual panties in the morning, take them off at night, without risk of leakage or discomfort
>> The menstrual panties can be worn between 4 to 12 hours, to adapt according to the flow of each one (light, medium, abundant) and the time of the cycle
>> The ruler panty can be worn all night long if the model has enough coverage and the absorption zone from the bottom of the panty up towards the buttocks

 

Advice : it is quite possible to wear panties for light flow at the start of the cycle, at the time of ovulation in case of spotting* or as hygienic protection for profuse vaginal discharge. Models of absorbent panties also called ''powerwill be comfortable to wear at night, in case of heavy flow or for sports sessions. These models often have a larger size absorbent fabric.
