Since being introduced to period panties 5 years ago, I have become a big fan. They are just so, so easy. If you think you’re period is on it’s way, put on some period panties. If you wake up in the morning and your period has started, put on some period panties. If you want back-up for a cup or tampon, wear your period panties. If you’re extra tender or sore and don’t want to deal with anything internal-you guessed it-period panties to the rescue! When WUKA reached out to me to try out their new line of period panties, I was so excited to oblige!
As we all know, I am a sucker for packaging + branding and I love WUKA’s! The elastic waistband is branded with their sweet acronym (Wake Up Kick Ass=WUKA) and I love their overall brand. WUKA is based in the UK and a fantastic option for my followers across the sea. WUKA period panties are made with LENZING MicroModal, which is so soft it feels better than silk. LENZING MicroModal absorbs more liquid at a faster rate than cotton, making it perfect for WUKA. Unlike organic cotton, 95% of the chemicals used in the production of LENZING MicroModal are recycled and reused again. With WUKA, it’s possible to feel the comfort and be environmentally friendly at the same time.
But onto the important questions:
How well do period panties actually work?
Fantastic. I was so happy with not only the look but the fit of these undies! They have a much larger gusset than other brands I’ve tried and while it made them feel a little more diapery, I also felt overly protected, which I don’t hate.
Do period panties leak?
Not if they’re good ones like these! After wearing these on my heaviest flow day for 12 hours, I didn’t have a single leak. Every new pair of period panties I try I overlap with a layer of white shorts to see if I have any leaks and these passed the test!
How easy are period panties to clean?
Very easy. WUKA panties are recommended to wash on cold and then line dry. It’s as easy as throwing them in with your normal undies cycle and not putting them in the dryer.
Some of WUKA’s features:
- The world’s most comfortable, hygienic, luxurious and eco-friendly period underwear.
- WUKA is your complete tampon and pad replacement
- Wear it up to 8 hours on light days, 4-6 hours on your heavy days or all night.

- Luxurious, soft and stretchy Lenzing® MicroModal fabric with a super absorbent hi-tech fabric and moisture barrier making it period proof
- Midi brief style with full coverage at the back without feeling bulky
- WUKA signature elastic waistband
