What's my flow?
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.
Our bikini is a resolutely feminine model, discreet at the waist and slightly pinched at the hip, it's ideal for accompanying you during the day at periods and highlighting your curves.

If you are between two sizes, take the next size up.
Our bikini has a relatively low waist and a snug fit, just like our Philomène model. If you'd like a model that rises higher in the waist or covers more of the buttocks, we recommend the shorty, which sits higher on the hips.
Take your measurements directly on the body, loosely. The waist circumference (or hip circumference) corresponds to the widest point below the waist (generally at buttock level). Please note that our models relax slightly with washing.
If you're still in any doubt about which size to choose, take your favorite panties and measure the width at the waist from edge to edge. Please note that not all models wear the same way and have the same elasticity, so measure with a model similar to the one you want (take your favorite tanga/string for our Choupette tanga, a shorty or boxer for Armande, etc.).

Transparent panties at the right price.
Very comfortable to wear, doesn't leave marks under clothes (I'm a size 38, I order S). Beautiful cut and finish.
Perfect for medium flow, for heavier flow days I have Armande shorties which are also great!
The panties are comfortable to wear. I've never had a leak. I highly recommend these panties. I even recommended them a 2nd time!
Excellent product, very pleasant to wear, beautiful and absorbent for small flows.
Attractive, comfortable panties. Very good absorption without any feeling of wetness.
High-quality panties. The fit is perfect, as described on the website. The material is very soft and pleasant to wear.
Simple, comfortable panties that fit well. Follow the size guide, I'm a 36 and I took S. As with the rest of our lingerie, we forget our periods and it's great.
Very nice discovery. I was really reluctant to use a period underwear because of the hygiene and aesthetic aspects. In the end, I feel very comfortable in them, and the panties are lovely. I'm going to order another pair, more suitable for night wear for example :).
Thanks for the super-fast delivery and great packaging!
