about the undies

How does FLUX work?

FLUX is a patent-pending underwear that combines four layers of ultra-thin materials that are moisture wicking, anti-microbial, absorbent, and leak-proof so you can say goodbye to pads and tampons. FLUX is also used for post-partum, bladder leaks, and discharge. The detachable sides allow for easy changing in the most inconvenient places, e.g. long travels. 

What do you mean by 'period-proof'?

Period-proof means that the lining of the underwear is designed to absorb moisture from vaginal discharge, sweats, bladder leaks, and periods without leaking. Our underwear consists of four thin layers of protection that make this possible. 


Top layer:moisture wicking, so that you stay fresh as a daisy. 
Second layer:anti-microbial, keeping you squeaky clean. 
Third layer: absorbs moisture, so you don’t feel wet. 
Fourth layer:leak-proof, so you're worry free.

Can FLUX completely replace pads & tampons?

Yes, FLUX completely replaces pantyliners, pads and tampons. Our absorbent lining holds up to 10x its weight and absorbs moisture at rates 20x faster than cotton. This allows FLUX to absorb up to 4x the amount of a regular pad and hold for up to 12 hours depending on your flow. You will know when it’s time to change your FLUX, but it will not be visible to anyone else!

Can I use them for bladder leaks?

Yes, that’s why we say FLUX is so versatile! They can be used for periods, post-partum, bladder incontinence, and bladder leaks.

What colour is the lining?

The lining in all styles and colours, is black.

How do I wash my undies?

FLUX should be cared for just as any other underwear. They're best washed by hand in cold water and air-dried, but we know you’re busy. So the next best thing is a cold wash/30 degree machine wash, and then hang to dry. Please do not tumble dry - this will damage the absorbent tech. 

Is FLUX hygienic?

Of course. The built-in protective panel is coated with antimicrobial and antibacterial silver properties, so you feel fresh at all times. 

How long can I wear them for?

FLUX absorbs up to 4x the amount of a regular pad and hold for up to 12 hours depending on your flow. You will know when it’s time to change your FLUX, but it will not be visible to anyone else!

How is FLUX different from other 'period panty' brands?

FLUX completely replaces pads and tampons, and can be worn alone during even heavy periods rather than just acting as a back-up to a pad/tampon. We also offer a clever and easy way to change without stepping foot off the ground, in even the most inconvenient spaces, with our simple side clasps. 

What are flux made from?

Is FLUX eco friendly and ethically made?

Did you know one disposable pad takes up to 500 years to decompose? Or that hundreds and thousands of pads & tampons enter our landfills annually? Well, now you do. And you can help to change this. By switching to reusable period solutions, you're reducing your carbon footprint and stopping waste from damaging our planet. 


Aside from being an environmentally friendly alternative, FLUX is kinder to your skin. Unlike disposable pads and tampons, our undies contain no hidden nasties, chemicals, or irritants.

Are your garments vegan?

They sure are! Whilst some period panties use fabrics such as wool, our undies derive from 100% natural fabric and 0% animals. 

Where is FLUX manufactured?

FLUX is made right here in the UK, by a family run company that have been operating for almost 100 years, so you can rest assured your undies are in good hands! We believe in fair trade, proper pay, rest breaks, and a good cup of tea. We don't believe in exploiting women in one country to empower them in another. You can sleep easy knowing your undies are #sweatshopfree.

How long will one pair last?

One pair of FLUX will last 2-3 years, replacing over 450 pads/tampons and stopping them from going to landfill!

facts & figs

How many women experience those 'oops' moments?

9 out of 10 women in the UK have experienced leaks and accidents during their period, through bladder leaks and light incontinence.  

How many pads and tampons does a woman use through her lifetime?

The average woman will use between 14,000 and 18,000 disposable pads, tampons and pantyliners during her lifetime.

How many pairs of stained underwear does a woman throw away each year?

5 or more pairs of underwear are typically thrown away by one woman every year.

How much blood do women lose, on average, per period?

Most women experience a blood flow between 10-80 ml during one cycle, and the average amount of blood that a woman’s body expels during her menstruation is 35 ml. That is about 2 – 3 tablespoons (42ml) or 6 teaspoons (30ml). While that is the average, women have given varying reports from just a spot to over two cups (540ml!) in one menstruation. Every body is different, and that's why we like to say: go with the *your* flow.

What is period poverty?

‘Period poverty’ refers to having a lack of access to sanitary products due to financial constraints - something that many of us are lucky enough to probably take for granted. Women and girls in third world countries are greatly affected, however, this is also affecting girls right on our doorstep and having a serious affect on education, health and life in general for thousands of girls in the UK. That's why we started our 'By You, For Her' campaign.
