Underwear for menstruation
Underwear for menstruation
Featuring COCORO, the first Spanish brand designing underwear for menstruation. Breathable, leak-resistant and with a piece of antibacterial fabric. You don't have to use anything else!
Are you ready to throw away that old underwear that you have stored for your menstrual days? COCORO menstrual panties hold up to the equivalent of two tampons plus... they are pretty and comfortable.
Menstrual underwear is another sustainable way to live your menstruation. Reusable and completely made in Spain. With a lifespan of about 60 washings, you can use it for about two or three years, and later on, you continue using it as normal underwear.
You can find three different models:
Vira, if you like simple and comfortable underwear
High-waist, if you are looking for extra protection and a firmer hold to your uterus.
Thong, perfect for the last days or for light menstruations.
Here you can see the equivalence-table to see which size fits you better. If you are in doubt, we recommend that you buy the largest one, since they tend to be slightly smaller, and also keep in mind that when we menstruate we tend to be more swollen than normal.
What is menstrual underwear?
Menstrual underwear is worn like normal underwear, but it’s made with a special tissue that absorbs your menstrual flow. This way you don’t have to wear anything else during your menstruation.
This is possible thanks to a inner layer of antimicrobial tissue that absorbs menstruation. It is an absorbent, waterproof, antibacterial and breathable tissue. This layer does not come into contact with your body and lies behind a layer of cotton and another outer tissue.
The part of the underwear that comes into contact with your body is made up of cotton. Combined with the inner layer, it makes you feel no moisture. The goal is to make them comfortable and soft to the touch at the same time that they respect even the most sensitive skin.
The outer tissue is waterproof and it ensures that the menstrual flow does not bleed through and does not stain your clothes.
Is menstrual underwear absorbent?
Menstrual underwear is very absorbent. Some models, like the Vira model, absorb approximately the flow equivalent to two normal tampons. You can use it to sleep, during the day, or combined with a menstrual cup or tampon.
Once it reach its maximum capacity you will notice that it has stopped absorbing, but it will not stain your clothes.
