*International size is given for reference only and differs per brand. Please measure your waist to get the best fit underwear for your body. 

Our underwear feels very comfortable and snug in any size, if you prefer a tighter fit we'd suggest going for the smaller of your usual sizes. For example, if you are a 10 - 12, then a 10 is likely to be better for you. You know your body, so ultimately you are the best judge of fit. 

What about stretch, slippage and gusset size?

WUKA Period Wear fabric has plenty of 4-way stretch, meaning it's forgiving on your body as you move about during the day. It's less likely to leave a line or feel clammy and tight than your usual underwear or a pad.

The waistband has a lot of stretch which means a gentle, comfortable fit but is less likely to slip as it has a large surface contact area. 

The gusset has a 25 - 27cm long absorbant fabric gusset. This is big! This means that whether you front, middle, back bleeder we have more than enough absorbancy for your flow. As the absorbant layers are integrated into the underwear you can relax that there will be no movement like the pad.
