Healthier and more sustainable periods. Following their award-winning menstrual cup, AllMatters (formerly OrganiCup) launches period underwear. The reusable solution holds as much fluid as 1 to 2 tampons (10ml), is comfortable and leak-proof. It can be worn instead of tampons, pads or menstrual cups or as additional protection, not only during periods but also, for example, during postpartum or in cases of mild incontinence.
Period underwear does not differ visually from conventional briefs, but technically it offers much more thanks to its 4 layers. The inner layer is made of 77% polyester and 23% merino wool and is naturally antibacterial and odour-free. The absorbent core made from 100% eco-friendly VEOCEL viscose keeps you dry and offers natural care and comfort. Leakage is prevented thanks to a 100% polyester waterproof layer. The briefs themselves are made from 94% TENCEL Lyocell and 6% elastane, are gentle on the skin and have a flattering fit thanks to their high cut. Most importantly, there are no PFAS or harmful substances in them.
How do you wash period underwear? Simply rinse under running water. Then put them in the washing machine and choose the cold wash or delicate cycle. With proper care, your period underwear will last between 2 and 5 years.
Is period underwear for me? Period underwear is most suitable for light to regular flows and can be worn for up to 12 hours. If you have heavy periods, a menstrual cup may be a better fit. But if you don't mind changing your underwear frequently, go ahead and give it a try! Especially in the beginning, we recommend checking your underwear after 3 hours and every hour thereafter to get a feel for when you need to change.
