I read all the reviews and was excited about my purchase, but am a little underwhelmed.
Whilst the gusset lining goes all the way to the back, it lacks coverage at the front. I will not be able to use these at night, as I tend to sleep ony front and there is no lining. Even for day wear I had to position them pulled high at the front and low at the back, just to have adequate coverage at the front.
They are super absorbent though which is impressive.
Unfortunately there is a small hole in one of the pairs that I didn't notice until after I'd put them on, and is likely to get bigger and render them unusable before too long.
This is my first foray into period underwear and I am very happy. Comfortable to wear, easy to care for and easier on the planet. I have a light flow and I can wear one pair for a day with no problem. Have now purchased three pairs which I can wash and dry in rotation. Thank you Underwear for Humanity.
These undies are super comfy and a great fit (true to size).
They don’t have that gross bulky/nappy feeling that some other brands have in the bum area.
I was a little concerned at first about how low the front gusset sits on me but I have had no problems at all.
The crinkly noise other have mentioned in reviews went away with the initial wash.
I am super happy with my purchase and I love supporting this business and their great cause.
It has taken me some time to try period undies (I'm 45) and I'm now a total convert. I can't comment on other brands but these are such a revolution. Given my trepidation, I only wore them day 3-6 day and night, but I'm confident I'd have no issues from day 1 next time. (My period is fairly light). I have since purchased 3 pairs in total and a further 3 pairs for my mum for some light incontinence. She loves them too. I'm a size 14 -16 in bottoms and the 14 are perfect. They wash well and dry quicker than expected. The faint rustling noise does go away with a couple of washes. The feel good factor in terms of donations and the environment is also a selling point for me.
Wearing these for the first time today, so far: super comfortable and absorbing well, and compared to other period undies I have worn I am loving how light and non-bulky they are.
