Swimwear, UV50+, recycled material
It’s time for holidays free from the stress of menstruation! We’ve designed the first Femi.Eko Leakproof Swim underwear that will protect you from menstrual and bladder leakage – in and out of the water.
This type of brief offers freedom of movement, comfort and confidence, leaving you to fully enjoy your holiday, sea and pool without the stress of menstruation pr incontinence. Simply use these moderately absorbent briefs as a swim brief, changing them when saturated with fluid.
Even though they’re mainly dedicated to swimming, they can be used whenever you’re on your period, enjoying the protection and comfort of Femi.eko underwear.
Rated UV50+ for sun protection, the Femi.eko brief is made from recycled, chlorine-resistant material. It’s also resistant to repeated wear and retains its shape, so you can reuse them for years. Plus, the colour won’t fade in the sun. This type of absorbent panty keeps odours at bay and gives you protection for mild to moderate bleeding or mild bladder leakage.
The outer layers are waterproof, repelling water. So blood or urine doesn’t pass from the inside to the outside and you won’t be surprised to discover stains on your underwear. Forget about changing pads in public bathrooms and stay protected during your holiday with this lovely brief that’s great to touch and extremely comfortable. Femi.eko brief sizes correspond to standard sizes. We recommend a larger size in case of an hourglass or pear/pear silhouette.
Made from recycled nylon in keeping with Femi.eko’s mission to create sustainable, reusable and comfortable products. You’ll be able to wear them for up to 2 years – if you choose monthly wear or enjoy them only at the beach (in which case you’ll be able to keep them for over 5 years). Requires washing before first wear.

Frequently asked questions
Femi.Eko® period underwear holds up to 5-6 regular tampons’ worth of fluid (45 mL). It is super absorbent thanks to the full rear protection, making it a great solution for heavy flows and night use.
If you have any concerns about your flow or you’ve never used this kind of protection until now, wear your Femi.Eko® panties while at home for a day of your cycle. You will be able to test with no stress how the panties adjust to the natural flow and how often you must change.
For a normal period flow, you may need to change the period underwear about 2 times a day, but if you have heavy flows, then you can change 3 times a day. Normally, you should not keep the underwear for more than 10 hours, as it is not hygienically safe.
No, Femi.Eko® period underwear tends to stay fresher than other intimate products. That’s because the fabric breathes, while keeping most of the liquid in the interior layers. This helps stop the growth of bacteria that normally produces nasty smells.
If you notice any weird smells, you may need to check the issue with your doctor and eliminate any undetected infections.
Please don’t add softeners or perfume while washing your period underwear, this can destroy the protective layers and cause disbalance to your flora.
