WUKA - Which model should I choose?
Which ones should YOU choose menstrual panties? Read along in this guide - we ourselves have a lot of experience with the panties.
There are different "flows" on the menstrual panties - respectively light, medium, heavy and super heavy. The flow reflects the absorbency and thus the thickness and quality of the absorbent layer, so the more you bleed, the thicker the absorbent layer. You must therefore use a panty that suits how much you bleed and where you are in your period.
Light absorbency - can contain around 7 ml, which corresponds to approx. 1 tampon. Particularly suitable for days with spotting up to and just after the end of menstruation. The recommendation is to use the panty for up to 8 hours, but it can often be used for longer.
Medium absorbency - can contain around 15 ml., which corresponds to approx. 2-3 tampons. The recommendation is to use them for up to 8 hours, but you know your body best, and therefore it is also possible that you can use them for a longer time before changing.
Strong absorbency - can contain around 20 ml., which corresponds to approx. 4 tampons. The flow is suitable for the time when your period peaks. The recommendation is to wear the panties for up to 8 hours. But again it depends on your own judgment.
Super Heavy flow:
Very strong absorbency - can contain around 60 ml., which corresponds to approx. 12 tampons. You can wear the panties for up to 12 hours, and "super heavy flow" is therefore suitable for you who bleed a lot or as, for example, postpartum panties, for long shifts at work, etc. Eq.
Once you have decided on the flow, it is time to look at the fit of the menstrual panty and what suits your needs. Here we review the different types of fits.
(NOTE - always remember to see our size guide before you buy - there is a big difference between the different models.)
WUKA Bikini - a basic menstrual panty that most people like
Don't let the name fool you, the bikini period panties from WUKA are not swimwear, but organic cotton panties shaped like bikini panties.
It is a very "basic" and discreet panty with a fit that sits well on most abdomens and buttocks.
- Bikini describes the shape, which is a basic panty that fits most people.

WUKA Hipster - a basic menstrual panty with a high gusset (good for nighttime)
One of the other more discreet and basic models is the hipster. Unlike the bikini model, it has a high wedge with the absorbent layer, which goes all the way up the back, so it's really good to sleep with.
The hipster is the cheapest of the different models, as it is made of regular cotton (instead of eco-cotton like the bikini model). It is precisely made in that material so that everyone can afford it.
The hipster is cut slightly lower in the legs and has a more low-waisted fit than the bikini model.
- The hipster panty has a gusset that goes all the way up the back, so it's really good to sleep with.

WUKA Hipster Lace is an opportunity to make menstruation even more elegant and delicious. It's a brief that has the same fit as the regular hipster model, but instead has elegant lace on the sides.
If you are into delicious lingerie, then you can't tell the difference with the Hipster Lace model.
- Hipster Lace is popular with our users as it is elegant and fits well on the butt.

High waist is, as the name says, with a high waist, but the panty is super soft at the same time, as it is made of the most delicious and very environmentally friendly tencel, which is based on wood fibres. It is also available in many types, which can suck a little or a lot. High waist is a luxurious model with good materials and stretch, which provides a good fit if you want to flatten the stomach, for example.

WUKA Midi Brief - all-round and popular menstrual brief with a sporty edge
The so-called "Midi Brief" model is one of the most popular models (so far) in England. We assume that it is because, like the high waist, it is made of the most beautiful tencel material. In addition, the cut is something in between the high waist and the bikini model, i.e. that it has a slightly high waist, but less than high waist.
In addition, the model has many different types of absorbency, and there is even a smart edge with WUKA's name on it, which makes the panties a little sporty in appearance.
- The fit is "midi", i.e. halfway between a regular brief and a high waist, and there is a smart edge with WUKA's name on it.
- The material is FSC-certified tencel™, which is wonderfully soft, delicious and really nice and practical to wear.
- Not least, the fabric is an environmentally friendly choice, as tencel is based on wood fibres.
- Available in "light flow", "medium flow", "heavy flow" and "super heavy flow".
WUKA G-string - menstrual panties as a g-string
If you are one of those who love to wear a thong, the WUKA Thong is for you. It is made of delicious, soft, BCI-certified cotton, but is otherwise fairly basic in appearance and fits the vast majority of bodies.
However, the menstrual g-string from WUKA can only take a "light flow". Then if you bleed more, you can possibly use it with a menstrual cup for ultimate protection.
- The fit is good for most bodies.
- It is made from the softest and most delicious BCI-certified cotton.

If you are very active and play sports, WUKA Boxershorts are a good choice. The briefs look and feel like a pair of "real" boxer shorts, which also makes this model popular with many.
It consists of the delicious, FSC-certified tencel™, so it is also an environmentally friendly choice. However, the panties are only available with one absorbency (medium flow), which corresponds to 2-3 tampons.
