WUKA Ultimate High Waist Medium Flow Overview
They are perfect to replace a menstrual pad or tampon .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.
The High Waist have the same basic construction as the Wuka Midi pants but they come up much higher and have a super stretchy waist. The waist offers upto a 45% stretch; so you stay comfortable and supported even when putting up with that all-so-common tummy bloating.
Wuka High Waist are made with Lenzing a modal fabric which is 3.5 times softer than cotton.
Why I Love Them
There are seams in the Wuka High Waist period pants. The seams are cleverly disguised in the design as they are positioned at the point where the fabric becomes a mesh rather than the main body of soft tshirt type material. Now I know high waist is back in fashion and is super comfy but to me these do look like "granny pants" but will definitely keep your kidneys warm! The sides are approximately double the depth of the Wuka Midi pants. Being medium flow the gusset doesn't feel much thicker than ordinary pants, so anyone doing your laundry wouldn't be able to easily tell they were anything other than good quality knickers.
The Wuka High Waist 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.'

- 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.
