Wuka Basics Hipsters Medium Flow

  (2 Reviews)

WUKA Basics Hipster are offer the same great protection as other WUKA pants but at a more budget friendly price.  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.

Wuka Basic Hipster medium period pants hold at least 15ml of period flow which is approximately 2-3 tampons and are ideal for day or night. 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 Bikini 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.

They are available in sizes XS-4XL.

WUKA stands for Wake Up Kick Ass and their mission is to create the world's most comfortable and eco friendly period underwear.  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.

Really good period pants
Thursday, 20 January 2022  | 

I was getting fed up with bulky reusable pads slipping around so gave these a try. I'm really happy with them, the fit and feel is very comfortable, and I wore one pair all day/night without a problem (so feel confident I chose the right ones for my flow). Seemed to wash well too.

Definitely buying more

Very comfy and they do their job. They fit and look more like regular pants than the last lot of menstruation pants that I bought. My hubby didn't even notice what they were, where as my other are so big he knows. They also feel very good quality. The service from nappy lady was excellent as always. My son has been out of nappies for about 7 years now so I didn't expect to be shopping with them again but I'm very pleased that they now also sell period pants. I would definitely pick purchasing them from nappy lady over any other site as I have always had amazing service from nappy lady.
