Responsive team

I ordered my first pair of panties, but the seams cracked as soon as I put them on. I contacted Elia, whose team reacted immediately and sent me back the same model. The 1st product was probably defective. I'm pleased to have been heard quickly. These panties are very comfortable, the fabric is super soft compared to what I've bought elsewhere.

Comfortable

These menstrual briefs are very comfortable, soft, you can hardly feel them, and compared to others I find them to be really high quality. However, I have the impression that they relax a little after a few washes, so it's harder to stay in place...

Jumping seams

The seam popped out on one side at the first fitting.

Hello Léna,

Thank you for your order,

Indeed, this is not normal. Could you please send photos of the problem to [email protected]

We look forward to hearing from you,

Beautiful day,

Comfortable but not odor-proof...

I chose Elia because it's a French brand with a choice of quality materials.
The panties are very comfortable and pretty with their lace. On the other hand, I find that they retain moisture and smell much more than another brand I own... So it's less pleasant to wear for me.

Hello Paola,

Thank you for your order and for leaving us your feedback.

Indeed, if your panties are not thoroughly dry before being put away, a damp smell may linger.

We invite you to wash them (with a few drops of tea tree oil) and turn them over to dry.
You should no longer encounter this problem.

Have a nice day,

Size a little small

I just returned them because I'm a little tight in size L. But it's pretty and I'm happy with the others I already have, so I'll recommend one size up!

Perfect

Ideal for day and night, cotton is great, especially in summer. You feel protected and personally, I've had no worries about leaks, which was what I was most afraid of!

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.
