Wuka Basics Hipster Medium Flow Overview

They are designed for your Medium Flow days which tends to mean mid cycle or your whole period for those without any heavy flow days. Even though they are a basic range they are made with super soft cotton with up to 8 hours period protection.

The absorbency is in the gusset and right up the back of the pants so ideal if you're a heavier back bleeder or at night (but not at night on your heaviest day). Outside of the absorbent gusset the rest of the pant is made with 2 layers of soft stretchy material.

WUKA Basic Hipster are very similar style to Cheeky Mama Feeling Sporty pants however the WUKA fabric is much softer and you can feel the higher absorbency in the gusset area.

Why I love them


Wuka Basic Hipster are also ideal for light incontinence leaks. I like wearing period pants for exercising as my pelvic floor needs a bit of backup with high impact sports.  I happily wear these if i'm going on a longer run or a class I know i'll be jumping around a lot.

What I love about the Wuka Basic Hipster Period Pants is that they absolutely look like ordinary underwear. The Wuka Basics Hipster only has a small red label sewn onto the front and unlike some of their other Wuka pants it doesn't have the name WUKA printed around the elastic top. If you prefer a more discrete pair of period pants these are for you. There wouldn't be a reason you couldn't cut the WUKA red label off as well if you'd prefer them even more discrete.

Wuka pants offer high coverage and super absorbency, leak proof layer protection, breathable and resist odours. Each pair of period pants replace around 100 tampons or pads in their lifetime.

Care

  • HANDWASH: After use, rinse with cold water.
  • MACHINE WASH Cold: Pop your WUKA with similar, dark coloured garments and wash at 30 to 40 degrees. Don't use fabric softener. (We also recommend washing any WUKAs with mesh or lace in a wash bag. This will help prolong the life and the strength of the mesh.)
  • LINE DRY: Air dry your WUKA Period Pants outside on the line or indoors on an airer. Don't tumble dry it.

Pants FAQ's

How many pairs of period pants do I need?

We tend to find that 5-7 pairs of underwear are enough for the average cycle.  2 Night time pairs and 3-5 day time pairs means that you have enough to wash every other day and ensure that they dry in time for their next use.

Machine Washing Period Underwear.

Washing period pants in the washing machine is the most effective way to care for your undies.

Here is a basic guide to wash period pants:

  1. When you remove your used underwear rinse them thoroughly with cold water till the water runs clear. You can gently rub them to help remove as much blood as possible.
  2. Either pop them in your normal washing with other clothes or store them in a wet bag until wash day.
  3. Wash on a cold wash at either 30 or 40deg. You can use your normal detergent but avoid fabric softener.

Most companies will advise you to avoid harsh chemicals, fabric conditioner and tumble drying, as eventually it will lead to a shorter life span and issues with performance.

Iíve recently decided to try more sustainable alternatives for my menstrual cycle. Iíve had a positive experience with period pants. I tend to have heavy periods so I wear them towards the end of my cycle. I havenít worn them outside yet, but will do in the future

My first-time wearing a period pant and I am hooked. Also, despite medium flow I actually thought there wasn't much difference from the heavy flow one.
