Hip Hugger Period Underwear in Black
Flow fearlessly in EMFLOWER Hip Hugger Period and Incontinence Underwear. The best Period Underwear for LBL, comfort, health and environmental impact.
The unique design of our underwear helps to prevent leaks and odour, leaving you feeling comfortable and confident when you are busy running errands.
The crotch in our Period Underwear has 4 Layers of waterproofing technology built into the design, that provide an anti-leak barrier against liquid, ensuring no stains will be left behind on your clothing. The 4-layer crotch extends all the way up to the back of the Underwear, so you can sleep soundly knowing your white sheets are safe.
Unlike other brands, our Hip Hugger Period Underwear features an Organic Cotton Mesh layer in the crotch design, meaning they will quickly absorb all liquid, keeping you feeling dry and fresh all day long.
The Hip Hugger style fits like a brief, and is designed to be worn during heavy flow days and they are perfect for day, night or exercise.
Made from 95% Certified Organic Cotton and 5% elastane, this fabric is not only better for the environment, but better for your body too. Organic material does not cause rashes or irritation.
Save yourself a trip to the shops every month because our Period Underwear will last you for 3+ years.
EMFLOWER'S Hip Hugger style holds the equivalent of approximately 4 tampons.

Check out the common questions we get asked at Emflower about our Period Underwear:
How many hours can I wear my Period Underwear for?
Well that depends on how heavy your period is. Our Period Underwear hold up to 4 tampons worth, which is equivalent to 1 day with a medium to heavy period. If you generally use more than 4 tampons during the day, make sure you keep a spare pair of Period Underwear in your bag just in case.
Will my Period Underwear stain?
To decrease the chance of your Period Underwear staining, make sure you rinse or soak them within 24 hours after wearing them. If you are not doing washing for a couple of days, leave them soaking in a bucket of water with a little bit of laundry detergent.
Do not use bleach on your Period Underwear, as we use a plant-based dye to colour the underwear and bleach will strip this colour.
How many pairs of Period Underwear do I need?
That depends on how long your period lasts, and how heavy it is. We recommend changing your Period Underwear each day and night for heavier periods. So if your period usually lasts 4 days, we would recommend 8 pairs of Period Underwear. When your period is medium to light you could easily get away with wearing 1 pair for up to 24 hours.
Can I wear Period Underwear with other menstrual products?
Yes you certainly can. For those with heavier periods, we recommend pairing your Period Undies with a menstrual cup for that extra protection. They can also be worn with tampons and pads, but in all honestly they don’t need to be. They have 4 layers of protection so you should be more than fine to just wear your Period Underwear by themselves, unless you have a really heavy flow.
Can I wear Period Underwear Swimming?
Unfortunately you cannot wear your Period Underwear swimming. Those 4 layers holding it all in will definitely leak out into the pool or ocean. We recommend using a menstrual cup when you go swimming, as you will be fully protected from leaks.
My favs, always last all day when I'm at work. I just use the bikini style ones for the end of my period or when im at home. I size up for comfort (usually a S and buy these in an M). Highly highly recommend.
I wanted to see what all the fuss was about. Emflower's period underwear work just like a pad but far more comfortable. I prefer the hip hugger style
These underwear have been so comfortable to wear throughout my pregnancy. They are really stretchy so they still fit perfectly while my belly has been growing
