Pop-up: What's my feed?
A pair of panties can absorb and dry up to 100ml of blood, the equivalent of 8 tampons for the most absorbent.
All our undergarments can be worn for up to 12 hours, depending on your flow.
Light flows : Capacity for approx. 15ml of absorption over 12 hours.
Average flows : Capacity of approx. 30ml of absorption over 12 hours
Significant flows and/or at night : Capacity of approx. 50ml every 12 hours
Bleeding flows: 100ml absorption capacity over 12 hours.
A flow is considered average if bleeding totals around 40 to 50ml per cycle... that's barely a quarter of a glass of water! Below 30ml per cycle, the bleeding is light. Above 60ml, the flow is heavy or even hemorrhagic. By way of comparison, the capacity of a menstrual cup is around 25ml.
