Can Neione period underwear replace feminine hygiene products completely, e.g.,tampons or pads?

Yes, Neione period underwear can replace feminine hygiene products to some extent, depending on the discharge volume and the type of period panties you choose. Most period panties in the market have an absorbency equivalent to 2 - 3 tampons, making them suitable for lighter menstruation. For customers experiencing a light flow, wearing the period underwear alone should be sufficient.

However, for heavy flow, we recommend using the period panties in combination with other protection, such as tampons or pads. It's important to note that absorbent period panties cannot fully replace maxi pads or incontinence pads, as the absorbency of such pads can go up to 100 milliliters.

Neione period underwear offers a comfortable and eco-friendly alternative for managing menstruation, but individual needs may vary, and additional protection might be necessary for certain situations.

How much can Neione period underwear absorb?

Neione period underwear offers two absorbency options: Light and Moderate.

The Light absorbency can hold 10-15 milliliters, which is equivalent to about 2 tampons' worth of fluid. For a bit more protection, our Moderate absorbency can hold 15-20 milliliters, equivalent to approximately 3 tampons' worth.

You can find the specific absorbency of each style under the "Product Information" section.

Is period underwear only for menstruation?

Not at all! Our Neione period underwear is designed to be versatile and cater to various needs.

While they are perfect for menstruation with their leak-proof, absorbent, anti-microbial, and odor control features, they are also useful for other situations.

Whether it's postpartum or post-delivery bleeding, dealing with light bladder leaks, managing stress or urge incontinence, or even handling menopause sweating, Neione period underwear provides that extra protection you need.

Can I wear period underwear while swimming?

It's not recommended to wear period underwear while swimming.

The design and functionality of period underwear are primarily intended for providing protection against leaks during regular daily activities. However, when submerged in water, such as during swimming, the absorbent materials may become saturated, compromising their effectiveness. For swimming during menstruation, it's best to use dedicated menstrual swimwear specifically designed for water activities. This ensures proper protection and allows you to enjoy swimming without any worries.

Does period underwear make a sound when you move?

No, period underwear doesn't make more sound than regular clothing when you move.

Our period underpants are designed with comfort and discretion in mind, and they do not produce noticeable or unusual sounds as you go about your daily activities. You can wear them with confidence, knowing that they provide excellent protection without drawing any unnecessary attention.

Are Neione period underwear PFAS-free (Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances)?

Absolutely! Neione period panties are PFAS-free. We take great care in ensuring the safety and quality of our products. Our period underwear is made from fabric that meets the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®, one of the world's most renowned labels for textiles tested for harmful substances. This certification ensures customer confidence and high product safety.

Are the materials used in your period underwear treated with biocides?

Our period underwear incorporates two technologies, Physical Bacteriostatic Technology and SilvaDur, for odor control, and neither of them involves the use of biocides. We prioritize the safety and comfort of our customers, and the fabric that directly contacts the skin is treated with a non-chemical Physical Bacteriostatic Technology using negative ions, while the fabric treated with SilvaDur is sandwiched between layers.

How often should I replace my period underwear to maintain its effectiveness?

With proper care and washing, our period underwear can maintain its effectiveness for a considerable period. However, like all undergarments, they will naturally wear over time. We recommend replacing them approximately every 2 years or after 80 washes to ensure optimal performance and comfort.

How should I choose the right size?

To find the perfect fit, please refer to our size guide.

As size standards can vary significantly among brands, we recommend using a measuring tape to take the actual measurement of the fullest circumference of your hip, instead of relying solely on your usual size. This will help you make the right choice in selecting the appropriate size for your Neione period underwear. It's essential to note that our underwear sizing is based on hip size, not waist size, as the waist measurement is only relevant for high-waisted styles. By following our size guide and measuring accurately, you can ensure a comfortable and well-fitting pair of period underwear.

Does Neione underwear need to be hand-washed, or can it be thrown into the dryer?

Neione period panties are designed to accommodate modern living, using high-quality fibers and a resilient knitting method that can withstand machine washing and drying at a maximum temperature of 60°C or 140°F.

On a side note, we advise customers to wash out any stains immediately after use to prevent the vaginal acid from potentially oxidizing and "bleaching" the fabric if the stains sit in for too long. This proactive approach will help maintain the quality and longevity of your Neione period panties.
