      BIG DAYS?

      A detachable period pants for abundant flow

      This period pants is designed for heavy flows (absorbing the equivalent of 6 tampons over the entire absorbent zone), incorporating a double layer of our innovative fabrics while remaining thinner than a conventional sanitary pad.

      This will double the daily absorption capacity of even the heaviest flows, and make it easy to change clothes throughout the day, without having to remove shoes, pants or tights in the toilet.

      We wanted to offer an all-terrain panty that s'adapts to all morphologies and flows of periods.

      OUR PERIOD PANTS DETACHABLE CHARLOTTE HAS IT ALL!

      Cotton, comfort, looks

      This pretty menstrual lingerie is also adorned with a delicate silver lurex ribbon (soft, non-itchy) for a pretty glamorous finish, so there's no compromise between looks and comfort.

      Our clip-on closure system is discreet, won't mark the skin, and won't create a bulge under clothing. Secure and comfortable, our patented clips won't come off accidentally. A detachable panty from periods in soft organic cotton, guaranteed not to leak, smell or feel damp. 

      WITHOUT A BREAK?

      Why use an Elia detachable period pants ?

      A revolution for all those who need to change mid-day at work or school... Our detachable panties are ideal for all professions, such as the medical profession, with long working days, in standing position, on the move or with few breaks for changing. Combine with our nomadic menstrual pouch, to take with you wherever you go.

      Like all our models, Elia menstrual panties are designed in collaboration with healthcare professionals and our customers. For this detachable lingerie, we worked with Charlotte, an emergency room nurse and mother of 5.

      YEARS OF IMPROVEMENT

      What is the attachment for the detachable period pants ?

      Did you know that the first version of Philomène panties, invented in 2018, was detachable? Except that the fastening system didn't work for us...

      Over a period of several months, we tested different ways of attaching period pants Elia to prevent it from slipping under clothing, getting in the way of the waistband, oxidizing, marking the skin or damaging the cotton over time.

      Say goodbye to snaps, scratches, iron fasteners and bra hooks. Hello to this unique, patented and ingenious system!

      Perfect protection/Size Louison

      Very happy with my first order last year, I wanted to try out the Louison cyclist. The only drawback was that, unlike the other panties that fit perfectly in L, the cyclist was a bit large (yawns at the belly). I didn't send it back because the return link didn't work.

      Practical but not resistant

      I've bought a lot of panties from you, but this one is the least resistant. All the outer seams are coming apart one by one, what a shame.
      The more classic models, on the other hand, are very strong.

      I've tested panties with ties

      I decided to test the detachable panties with the idea, if it suited me, of equipping my schoolgirl with this model.
      For my 1st test, I'd say that the fasteners aren't too annoying under pants. One came undone after I'd gone to the toilet, which surprised me, but it wasn't difficult to reattach.

      On the other hand, as far as flow is concerned, I wouldn't say it's suitable for abundant flow but rather for medium flow. I wore them for 6 hours and ended up with a big leak. I have other heavy flow panties (other brands) and I can wait 7 or 8 hours to change them. 6h is just...

      Hello Tatiana,

      Thank you for your feedback,

      Wearing time depends on the flow and viscosity of each wearer's blood.
      If there's a leak, it's through the seams (not through the center); indeed, once absorption has reached saturation, leaks are through the seams (which is the case with all menstrual panties). We therefore invite you to change more regularly if your flow requires it, and to test the panties at different times in your cycle.

      We already work with many schools, and would be delighted to talk to you about the products we can offer for your project. Please write to us at [email protected]

      Disappointing ...

      Written for abundant flow, but after 4 hours of use with a normal flow you're already leaking.....
      For the price and the thickness of the panties (which are quite thick) you'd expect better absorption. Disappointed 😞

      Hello Clarisse,

      Many thanks for your valuable feedback, which we take very seriously!

      Our knickers are made to last up to 12 hours and up to 4 pads in terms of absorption for our most absorbent models, the shorty and the cyclist, but this is a maximum estimate which of course depends on the flow of each one, its viscosity, your moment in the cycle, whether you bleed forwards or backwards, your activities and positions during the day etc....

      Your model is watertight in the absorbent zone, but if the panty's maximum absorption capacity has been reached, leakage generally occurs on the sides and through the seams - unfortunately, this is the critical point found in all menstrual panties!

      What's more, some women have a very central flow, which accumulates in the center of the panty, the narrowest area, causing it to overflow rapidly, while the rest of the absorbent zone is far from saturated. Those whose flow direction is forward or backward generally benefit from a longer wearing time before saturation of the absorbent zone!
      This is by no means inevitable, as it is possible to use interlabial petals to redirect the flow and thus achieve a better distribution of bleeding.
      Don't forget to wash your lingerie once or twice before wearing it, to maximize its absorption capacity: https: //www.elia-lingerie.com/pages/conseils-dentretien

      In the meantime, we recommend that you change your clothes more often, or use period pants in addition to protection if this is not sufficient on its own.

      We're sorry we couldn't meet your expectations, but periods briefs aren't always the magic bullet for every woman.

      Don't hesitate to test them in various conditions (with or without additional protection, at the end or beginning of periods etc...) to find out what suits your flow best!

      Have a wonderful day,

      a little disappointed

      It's comfortable and very practical thanks to the clips on the side.
      But I was disappointed because it said it was a heavy flow panty, but after 4 hours of use, I was leaking.
      I used another brand of period pants for a very long time, before buying this one, and I had never experienced leaks after such a short time.

      Hello Guigo;

      Thank you for your feedback,

      How long you wear them depends on your flow, the viscosity of your blood and your day's activities.
      Your model is watertight in the absorbent zone, but if the panty's maximum absorption capacity has been reached, leakage generally occurs at the sides and through the seams - unfortunately, this is the critical point found in all menstrual panties!
      Don't forget to wash your lingerie once or twice before wearing it, to maximize its absorption capacity.

      Have a nice day,

      Very good product

      I'm very happy with Charlotte's detachable panties, they're super practical because when I'm in class, I can't put my pants down completely, so it's very quick to change.

      FAQ : Your most frequently asked questions

      Our products

      How do I choose my size?

      We offer two product ranges: adult and teen. We have provided a size guide on each product page. We invite you to go to each product page, and click on "Choose my size", just below the phrase "Add to cart". 

      Please note that each product is sized differently, so we advise you to check each item carefully before validating your basket. 

      What's more, with the various washes, it's possible for our lingerie to relax slightly, so if your panties, on receipt, are slightly tight, don't panic, with the washes, this will s'sort itself out.

      How can I take my measurements correctly so that I don't get the wrong size?

      To avoid any mistakes, it's important to take your measurements in the right place.

      The exact place to take your measurements is at pelvic level, at the widest point of the pelvis, but without the "saddlebags" which are normally found a little lower down.

      The product m'interested in is out of stock

      It can happen, we're sorry. Rest assured, it never lasts too long.

      If the out-of-stock condition concerns one of our permanent models (Choupette, Philomène, Félicie, Armande, Simone or Louison), we invite you to sign up for alerts directly on our eshop. Usually, a few days later, you'll receive notification that the product is back in stock.

      If the breakage concerns a limited edition, unfortunately, it will no longer be available. Indeed, in order to limit waste, we do
      what we call upcycling: we use pretty cotton scraps to create small limited editions, which usually go to
      very quickly, so don't delay if you've fallen for the color.

      Where can I find Elia menstrual pants?

      Our menstrual pants are sold exclusively on our website. Please do not hesitate to contact our customer service department for advice on the choice of model or size.

      Our prices

      Why are there no sales?

      At Elia, we've opted for 100% French manufacturing, valuing every link in the
      production chain: from the cotton manufacturer, to the seamstress who will make your panties, to the order picker.

      Sales and fast-fashion are often the result of overproduction of textile products, at the cost of a disastrous ecological footprint and a waste of polluting raw materials during manufacture. So at Elia, we prefer to produce exactly what we need, with natural, high-quality raw materials. Our pricing policy is to offer you the best quality at the fairest price. We have chosen to produce everything in France to ensure traceability and maximum comfort of our panties, without compromise. 

      As part of our referral and loyalty program, however, you can quickly benefit from advantages that enable you to acquire our beautiful lingerie at a more attractive price.

      Is a pair of underpants from periods a saving?

      Absolutely! If you use disposable sanitary protection, that's just as much money and waste going into the garbage can every cycle. In the long term, periods panties are more economical. But beyond the cost savings you make with
      menstrual underwear, using periods underwear is above all a commitment to the planet (zero waste, fewer pollutants...) and to your body
      (100% organic cotton, no risk of toxic shock syndrome...).

      Take the test and find out how much you could save with our savings calculator.

      Duration and maintenance

      How long can I wear a period pants ?

      All our models can be worn for up to 12 hours, depending on your flow (we advise against wearing your lingerie for more than 12 hours for reasons of hygiene, as with classic lingerie).

      The Choupette tanga is for light flows, the Félicie and Philomène knickers for medium flows, the Armande shorty and Simone knickers are
      more suitable for heavy flows and/or at night, while our Louison cyclist is specially designed for hemorrhagic flows such as post-partum or flows linked to the wearing of a copper IUD, for example.

      You can also wear our lingerie in addition to conventional sanitary pads if you're worried about leaks.

      When should you wear panties from periods ?

      Initially designed to be worn during your periods, Elia lingerie is also perfectly suited to the following moments:
      - During your periods, day or night
      - With or without additional sanitary protection
      - Before your periods, if you're not sure when it's going to happen and want to be prepared in case of an unpleasant surprise
      - When playing sports
      - For light bladder weakness
      - For white discharge
      - After your delivery when you get home, for post-partum bleeding, and to avoid the risk of irritation caused by conventional protection
      - During pregnancy, for the minor inconveniences it can cause, particularly in the last trimester.

      And of course, like classic lingerie at any time of the month.

      How long does a period pants last?

      If you take good care of it, our Elia menstrual lingerie has the same lifespan as conventional lingerie: 5 to 7 years!

      To find out more about maintenance, click here.

      How do I wash a pair of panties from periods ?

      To preserve your lingerie for as long as possible, we recommend that you follow our care instructions:

      - Rinse your panties in cold water, until the water runs clear, as soon as you've finished wearing them
      - Squeeze them gently, without wringing, before putting them in the machine as soon as possible
      - Machine wash at low temperature (40°C maximum), with a glycerine-free detergent (avoid fabric softeners and other fabric conditioners, which are often very "greasy", and opt instead for white vinegar to soften your clothes)
      - Air dry.

      For more information and advice on caring for your Elia menstrual lingerie, visit this page.

      Is it safe to hand-wash briefs from periods ?

      Hand-washing is of course possible, but we prefer to recommend it as an exception. In fact, hand-washing is
      ultimately more aggressive on fabrics than machine-washing (more rubbing, wringing out and twisting the panties in all directions, etc.)
      which ultimately damages and relaxes your lingerie, Elia or otherwise.

      We recommend hand-washing during the cycle if you wish, and machine-washing at the end of each
      cycle.

      You'll find our maintenance tips right here.

      I have a discoloration stain on my panties that doesn't go away despite washing.

      It can happen: s's a phenomenon of discoloration that can occur when some of us have vaginal secretions
      a little more acidic. This only discolors the cotton, but in no way affects the panty's functionality.

      To minimize them, rinse them in cold, soap-free water as soon as possible after wearing them! And then put them in the washing machine, but otherwise it's all about appearance!

      It's a problem that's specific to all dark-bottomed panties (menstrual or not), as it depends on our personal acidity (white discharge like blood), which can vary and be more or less important during the same cycle. 

      A lighter-colored absorbent backing, on the other hand, would leave traces of blood after washing, which is why we chose the black color.

      This does not spare organic cottons and Oeko-tex certified fabrics, and is in no way a sign of poor quality materials. Once again, there's nothing to worry about, and it in no way impedes the effectiveness of our products!

      In these cases, we generally recommend changing more regularly and rinsing your underwear quickly after wearing it, if you don't want to alter the aesthetics of the inside of your panties too much.

      Which detergent should I use? And why avoid glycerine?

      We strongly advise you to use a hypoallergenic, glycerine-free detergent for Elia lingerie, and in general for all garments worn close to the body. We also offer a menstrual detergent for
      panties from periods.

      To soften your clothes, don't use fabric softener: if your water is hard and chalky, opt for white vinegar, which has anti-chalk properties and helps combat the dry appearance of clothes after washing. It also neutralizes unpleasant odours. You'll avoid having to use commercial chemical and perfumed products, which aren't recommended for underwear worn close to the body anyway!

      Glycerine clogs absorbent fibers and makes them waterproof in the long run: liquids are likely to bead up on the surface, and that's less effective!

      Be careful, for example, with the composition of Savon de Marseille: only a tiny amount of glycerine from the natural saponification process should remain in the original recipe.

      For the same reasons, we advise against the use of fabric softeners, as these are greasy compositions formulated to limit static electricity and soften linen, but which reduce absorption efficiency and clog up machines in the long run! In fact, you shouldn't use them on all absorbent household linen: towels, tea towels... as well as sportswear and menstrual pants!

      To find out more about our maintenance tips, please visit this page.

      I washed my panties at over 40°, do they still work?

      If your lingerie has been washed at over 40° or accidentally tumble-dried, don't worry!

      However, we recommend washing at low temperatures for the following reasons:

      The absorbent zone made of eucalyptus fibers tends to shrink slightly under the effect of heat. It's still just as absorbent, but you may notice that the cotton on top, which hasn't moved, wrinkles under the effect of the slightly shrunken absorbent layer. It's just less attractive!

      Blood "cooks" at high temperatures, so stains are harder to remove once they've been heated: that's why it's best to rinse by hand in cold water first. However, the inside of our knickers is all black, to avoid unsightly stain residues.

      However, the lifespan of your panties (and that of classic lingerie) is reduced by high-temperature washing, so it's best to avoid doing it!

      Have a nice day,

      Very good product

      I'm very happy with Charlotte's detachable panties, they're super practical because when I'm in class, I can't put my pants down completely, so it's very quick to change.
      I recommend them!

      The fasteners are sturdy and easy to put on and take off.

      Top

      At last, panties that detach at the sides for easy changing during the heaviest periods days. The closure is very easy to use.
      What's more, they're pretty with their silver edging and fit very well. Highly recommend!
