AWWA period panties look and feel just like your normal underwear, but can hold and absorb up to five regular pads or tampons worth of blood.
Our rigorously tested NZ designed period underwear features:
Depending on your flow, you choose to wear AWWA period underwear as an alternative to pads, tampons or cups, or in conjunction with other menstrual products.
Comfortable and sleek
Our period panties are soft and look just like your normal knickers. But better.
Take the worry out of your day
AWWA period underwear's absorbent, anti-microbial and leak-resistant layers keep you feeling fresh and dry, and take leaks out of the equation. They’re safe and easy to use, with no risk of toxic shock syndrome.
Easy to wash
Simply rinse in cold water, then wash on a cold cycle with your normal clothes. Line dry. Don't use fabric softener as it prevents the moisture-wicking and anti-microbial technologies from working.
By choosing AWWA period underwear, you’re helping to reduce the massive number of single-use menstrual products that end up in landfills (over 350 million in New Zealand every year!)
We recommend rinsing by hand first, then pop in a cold wash with your other clothes and line dry. DO NOT use fabric softener as it prevents the moisture-wicking and anti-microbial technologies in your AWWA undies from working as effectively.
How much liquid do they hold?
AWWA underwear has been rigorously tested. Depending on the style you purchase they can hold between 1 -5 regular pads/tampons worth of menstrual blood.
Can they replace all other menstrual products?
This depends on you and your flow — you know your body best. AWWA underwear can be used instead of other menstrual products, or for those with a heavy flow you may choose to wear them as a backup to your tampon or cup. We suggest you test your own limits.
So no odour? No dampness?
We have used the latest innovations in fabrics to prevent odour and dampness. The anti-microbial layer fights bacteria and odours, and the moisture wicking cotton quickly draws moisture away from your skin, keeping you dry.
How do I wash them?
We recommend rinsing by hand first, then pop in a cold wash with your other clothes and line dry. DO NOT use fabric softener as it prevents the moisture wicking and anti-microbial technologies from working.
Are they eco-friendly?
Hell yes! By replacing single use pads and tampons, AWWA underwear helps prevent millions of pads and tampons ending up in our waterways and landfill every year.
