Period & Incontinence Underwear – Hip Hugger (Emflower)

(14 customer reviews)


Our Hip Hugger Period Underwear are a little tighter around the legs than our Bikini style, for that extra protection! They have more stretch, and can also hold slightly more liquid.

We prefer to wear the Hip Hugger style on our heaviest flow days, or wear to bed.

Emflower’s Period Underwear are certified organic, so there are no nasty chemicals used in the manufacturing process.

Wearing organic Period Underwear is better for the planet, your body and your health. Read our blog to find out why.

60 day guarantee that you will love them, or your money back!


Emflower’s Hip Hugger style holds the equivalent of 4-5 tampons.

For light periods: We recommend changing our Period Underwear every 12-20 hours.

For medium periods: We recommend changing our Period Underwear every 10-12 hours.

For heavy periods: We recommend changing our Period Underwear every 8-10 hours.

Emflower Period Underwear will stay in great shape for up to 90 washes (approximately 3 years based on wearing them 2-3 times per cycle), with proper care.

Models are wearing a size S/6-8 and 2XL/16

How To Wash Your Period Underwear:

  1. Rinse your Period Underwear in cold water within 24 hours. You can also soak your Period Undies in a bucket of cold water with a little bit of laundry detergent until you are ready to wash them.
  2. Put your Period Underwear into a Laundry Wash Bag that can be zipped closed, then into the washing machine.
  3. Wash your Period Underwear on a warm wash (around 40 degrees Celsius).
  4. Hang dry your Period Undies. Do not put them in a dryer or iron them.
  5. Do not use fabric softener or bleach on your Period Underwear.

How many hours can I wear my Period Underwear for?

Well that depends on how heavy your period is. Our Period Panties hold up to 4 tampons worth, which is equivalent to 1 day with a medium to heavy period. If you generally use more than 4 tampons during the day, make sure you keep a spare pair of Period Undies in your bag just in case.

Does Period Underwear stain?

To decrease the chance of your Period Underwear staining, make sure you rinse or soak them within 24 hours after wearing them. If you are not doing washing for a couple of days, leave them soaking in a bucket of water with a little bit of laundry detergent.

How many pairs of Period Underwear do I need?

That depends on how long your period lasts, and how heavy it is. We recommend changing your Period Underwear each day and night for heavier periods. So if your period usually lasts 4 days, we would recommend 8 pairs of Period Underwear. When your period is medium to light you could easily get away with wearing them for up to 24 hours.

Can I wear Period Underwear with other menstrual products?

Yes you certainly can. For those with heavier periods, we recommend pairing your Period Undies with a Reusable Menstrual Cup for that extra protection. Our menstrual cups are made from medical grade silicone, can be worn up to 10 hours and last up to 16 years!

They can also be worn with tampons and pads, but in all honestly they don’t need to be. They have 4 layers of protection so you should be more than fine to just wear your Period Underwear by themselves.

Can I wear Period Underwear Swimming?

Unfortunately you cannot wear your Period Underwear swimming. Those 4 layers holding it all in will definitely leak out into the pool. We recommend using a Reusable Menstrual Cup when you go swimming, as you will be fully protected from leaks.

  1. Lynda

    Comfort, style and saving the environment!! Couldn’t be more thrilled with my eco friendly purchase!!

  2. Hayley

    So nice and comfy and absolutely no leakage whatsoever. Love this style for my heavier days when I feel like I need a little bit more coverage and support (hello period bloat lol).

  3. Terri

    Brought this on a whim to see what all the fuss was about and I’m glad I did.

    The underwear is super comfortable. I thought it would feel like I was wearing a pad but it doesn’t, it’s just like wearing your favourite ‘ that time of the month undies’.

    Added bonus it’s good for the environment.

  4. Terri A.

    Love these! Super comfy!

  5. Eloise A.

    Really good absorbency for my first heavy day. They are supposed to hold up to 4 tampons worth and it certainly does stack up, I didn’t feel like I had to change them after half a day like I have with other brands or use tampons as well. No odour, no leaks or staining on my clothes (also happened in the past). Keen to see how they launder and wear over time, but now I know how good they are I am buying more. I am also a student and other brands I have tried were a little out of reach. The quality of these period undies is there, so I don’t need to keep shopping around and trying different brands anymore!

  6. Alicia

    I was quite skeptical in the beginning as to how these would hold up during the day but they were amazing!!
    Super comfy and well fitting. The underwear lasted a full day with no leaks plus easy to wash
    Definitely well worth the investment

  7. Jenelin M.

    Bought it for my friends daughter & she loves it!

  8. Brittany Wilsmore

    Love these super comfortable period undies great for those heavy days around the house, had no issue with sleeping/laying. Zero leakage.

    For the first 10 years of my period life I had severe discomfort with pads, including chafing that was more like actual burns every month. Changing to ‘organic cotton’ pads for the next 10 years helped but there is still plastic in them, which I found out I’m allergic to.

    Switching to these period underwear has been an absolute LIFESAVER! The past few months of periods have been the most comfortable periods of my life! I’m not exaggerating that, I’ve never been so comfy through that week each month. No chafing, certainly no burning, and no general irritation that comes with having a pad on. I can move around without it being annoying, dance, work out… and there’s none of that grossness when you’re going to the bathroom. Kinda gross but I tested it on one of my heavy days and could run my finger over the inside and it wasn’t even damp! (Gross I know but I couldn’t believe how dry I felt!).

    I mainly wear the full briefs to bed because the padding bit is so big it is more like an overnight pad and helps with the movement throughout the night. I felt it was a little like wearing a nappy during the day but not uncomfortably so, just not as svelte as the bikini ones. Still incredibly comfortable though.

    Washing them out felt a little weird the first few times but you get used to it. Make sure if they’re not going into the wash straight away that you rinse them in warm water or follow the other care instructions that come with them.

    I am a large woman, wearing between 18-22 in clothing and have bought the 3XL. They fit wonderfully.

    I wholeheartedly recommend!

  10. Laila Oubid

    These have changed my life!!! I usually like to wear pads on my period but these undies are incredible, have had no problem with leaking and they are extremely comfortable! Very easy wash too 🙂 highly recommend x

  11. Maddie Pantou

    No leakage, no Smell, not feeling compacted. These are must have.
    When I go to sleep and wake up I have no marks on my bed, I have a clean mattress.
    These hold so much. It’s insane.

    Don’t know why I waited for so long to get these

    You need these bad boys 😃

  12. Lauren

    First time trying period undies and safe to say I love them

  13. Kerran

    Love the fabric of these, very breathable and comfortable to wear. Also finding these are handling rewear and washing better than some of the other brands I’ve tried! Very happy with these undies

  14. Clare W.

    I love my new underwear. They are comfy and so easy to use. Thank you for being so lovely and helpful 😊
