Period pants or menstrual underwear refers to normal knickers with a built-in absorbent liner. This consists of multiple layers and provides protection against leakage and unpleasant odours while you are on your period. Period knickers are worn just like normal ones and they don’t look any different from conventional underwear.Depending how heavy your flow is, period pants can provide up to 12 hours of leakage protection. For additional protection you can wear them while using a menstrual cup or disposable products.
Switching to sustainable period underwear has many advantages. Compared to tampons or pads, they are much better for the environment and you not only reduce waste, but also save money in the long term.

Our period knickers feature a special technology that absorbs and retains liquid without leaking. You’ll stay dry and will feel secure no matter what you’re doing, be it working, meeting up with friends or practising yoga. It’s all thanks to SELENAtec® multi-layer technology, which consists of:
Layer 1: Liquid is quickly and reliably wicked away.
Layer 2: Liquid is reliably absorbed to keep you feeling dry.
Layer 3: Breathable, leak-proof protective membrane for extra protection and wearing comfort.
Layer 4: This skin-friendly fabric ensures that the underwear is as comfortable to wear as normal knickers.
Despite these four layers, the material is very thin – less than 4 millimetres to be precise. Rest assured: our period knickers are as comfortable to wear as normal underwear.
Depending on the model, our period underwear can absorb up to 35 ml of liquid. The average person loses between 30 and 60 ml of blood every day during their period. Therefore, on medium and light-flow days, the underwear is practically all you need for the whole day. How often you change your period underwear depends on how heavy your flow is. On heavy days, or when you cannot change the underwear after 12 hours, we recommend also using a menstrual cup or single-use products.
The advantage of our sustainable period underwear is that you can wash them just like normal underwear. Here’s how:
- After wearing, rinse in cold water and add to a darks load.
- Wash at 30 to 40 degrees
- Leave to air dry
After use, rinse the period pants under cold running water. Then you can machine wash them with other dark garments. Washing at 30 degrees is perfectly sufficient; we also tested washing the underwear at 60 degrees and there were no ill effects. However, by washing at low temperatures, you help protect the environment. Do not use any bleach or fabric softener and leave the underwear to air dry after washing.
Our mission is to empower women and to encourage them to love themselves exactly as they are. And that also includes feeling good during their period. Our period underwear is a small step in this direction. Come and discover our range of period underwear and find the perfect pair for you. Do you need something comfortable for the night-time, a pair of invisible knickers for the day-time or a sexy model for special occasions? If so, you’re sure to find what you’re looking for at SELENACARE. And if you prefer to stick with your own underwear but are looking for a sustainable alternative to disposable products, check out our reusable pads and panty liners!
The most frequent questions
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I CHANGE MY PERIOD UNDERWEAR?
It all depends on how heavy your flow is and, of course, on the product itself. On days when your flow is quite light, you can wear the underwear for up to 12 hours. On heavier days you should change your period pants more regularly or use them in conjunction with additional products such as pads, tampons or a menstrual cup.
HOW MANY PAIRS OF PERIOD KNICKERS DO I NEED?
On average you’ll need 1–3 pairs of period knickers per day, depending on how heavy your flow is. If you wash them multiple times a week, you should be fine with 4–5 pairs of menstruation pants. If you want to keep things a little less stressful, 6–8 pairs will get you through your period without the need to keep on top of the washing. The number of period knickers you’ll need depends on how often you do laundry!
MENSTRUAL UNDERWEAR OR MENSTRUAL CUP?
Both work great! But being absolutely honest, having to empty the cup or change pads or tampons during the night is a pain! That’s why period underwear is the perfect alternative. Say goodbye to nightly leakage! No matter how much you toss and turn at night, our period underwear stays put and will not leak.
