When choosing a size, we recommend taking your normal underwear size. Your hip measurement is the best guide when trying to find the right size underwear. You can refer to our Size Guide located on each underwear style's page.
Which style of underwear should I buy?
We have different styles suitable for everyone! If you like having coverage and may be prone to heavier leakage, the Full Brief or the Bikini are great styles to choose from. If you like showing a bit of cheek and have light bladder leaks or periods, the G-String is an excellent option.
Is the underwear good for light bladder leaks?
They are perfect for women who experience light bladder leaks. Designed to be super absorbent, breathable and stain resistant. The moisture-wicking layer also draws discharge away from the source and fights bacteria to keep you fresh.
Can I wear the underwear without any additional protection?
Depending on your flow, Pelvi underwear can be a total replacement for disposable hygiene products. You can also wear them in conjunction with tampons for an added layer of protection.
Can I wear the underwear when I don't experience bladder leaks or expect to be on my period?
Yes! You can wear the underwear even if you don't experience bladder leakage or are expected to be on your period. Our underwear is designed to be amazingly comfortable for everyday wear.
We also suggest wearing the underwear a day or two before you’re scheduled to begin your cycle to avoid any kind of staining or damage to your regular underwear. Our underwear is a great way to ease in and out of your period, stress free.
How many pairs of underwear do I need per cycle?
We suggest having 1 to 2 pairs on hand for each day throughout your cycle depending on how heavy it may be. If you’re someone that is prone to having heavier periods, you may want to carry an extra pair around with you in a small wash bag throughout the day. By having 1 to 2 clean pairs of underwear a day, you can avoid using the washing machine too frequently, and wash them all together once your cycle is over. This will help keep your underwear strong and effective, as well using up less water and energy resources!

Will the underwear stain or smell over time?

However, if you’re still concerned, you can rinse them in cold water before putting them in the washing machine.
How long does the underwear take to dry?
Because the underwear is much thicker than the average pair, we suggest leaving them out to dry for 8-15 hours, depending on the temperature and humidity.
What if I accidentally put the underwear in the dryer?
Using the dryer won’t damage the underwear completely if you only do it a couple of times. If the underwear is constantly put in the dryer, it can damage the strength of the materials long-term and will be less protective over time.
