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 menstrual shorty provides up to 12 hours of absorption for heavy flows. It's ideal for night-time use or on the heaviest periods days.
Its comfortable cotton also makes it an ideal sportswear partner. It's no less elegant, however, thanks to its delicate lace trim around the thighs and waist.

Our Armande shorty fits large. This model is fuller in the buttocks and wider in the crotch for maximum absorbency. This easy-fitting model is ideal for night-time wear and sportswear, which is why its elastic waistband and thigh bands are so comfortable and non-restrictive. If you'd like a more snug fit, we recommend going down a size. If you're between sizes, take the next size down too.
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.).

How is the price of our Armande Shorty calculated?
What if your sanitary protection was your most beautiful lingerie?
How much does French production and "made in France" cost?
Since the launch of our panties brand at periods, lall our menstrual lingerie is designed in France in our offices and the workshops we work with.
The periods Elia knickers are designed, knitted, cut, assembled and sewn in French workshops that comply with strict health and environmental specifications. All our product packaging is designed by French illustrators. All stationery is recyclable and recycled.
All our commitments to "made in France", relocation and the textile industry imply much higher industrial costs than if we manufactured our products outside France.
When you buy Elia menstrual lingerie, you're paying for quality panties made from noble materials. You're buying pants from periods that respect the environment, with OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certification, organic cotton yarn and support for French craftsmanship thanks to the Origine France Garantie and France Terre Textile certifications. When you buy a period pants Elia, you're helping to relocate our industry and keep unique skills alive.
Transparent panties at the right price.
These were the first shorties I bought when I was just starting out in menstrual pants, and what a renaissance it was, no need to bother with the various disposable menstrual pads with dubious compositions and a lack of comfort. The Armande shorty is comfortable, well absorbent, with a nice, pretty cut and good coverage.
I bought Armande shorties for my 15 year old daughter and myself. We are very happy with them. They are very comfortable and we feel much freer than with towels.
Elia panties are truly amazing! I first took one to try out the quality, the product and the absorption, but everything is perfect. The details, the finish and the sensation of wearing them are really pleasant - you almost forget your cycle.
I really like these panties, even though I think they're my least favorite of the brand's models. The shape doesn't suit me as well and I find it a little tight.
Still, I like it a lot!
This is the 2nd Armande Short I've ordered. I find its comfort absolutely perfect for days when my flow is heavier.
Very good absorption, but as I have a very heavy flow for 2 days, I have to use 3 a day.
Very comfortable and easy to care for
Highly recommend :)
I love the high waist of the panties and their super absorbency. I highly recommend Elia!
Shorty worn 3 times since I received it and the seam with the lace is already cracked. I'm very disappointed to have chosen a very elegant shorty with this lace all around, only to have the result of a very simple pair of panties a few weeks later! I'm not sure I'd recommend this site, even though the shorties and panties are comfortable and hold heavy flows well.
Indeed, this is not normal at all,
Could you please send these photos to our after-sales service at [email protected] so that we can take care of your problem?
We look forward to hearing from you :)
A beautiful day
