ooia function

How do ooia products work?

An ooia period panty is as beautiful and comfortable as your favorite underwear, but it can do much more. ooia products can be washed in the washing machine at 40°C (see also here: "ooia care" or " ooia technology") and can then be worn again - so you avoid a lot of waste from using disposable products.

The ooia period underwear has an integrated membrane system in the crotch that pulls the liquid away from you, soaks it up and prevents it from leaking.

The ooia nursing bra has an integrated membrane system, which absorbs leaking breast milk, stays in place and protects you from unpleasant stains on your clothes.The pull-down function allows you to easily push the cup to the side and start breastfeeding.

The ooia everyday underwearhas an innovative and exclusively for us developed inner fabric made of soft cotton incorporated in the crotch, which can replace panty liners. Sweat, discharge or light spotting are quickly wicked away from the body. So you feel dry at all times.

The vegan ooia period beachwearhas an integrated membrane system in the crotch, which pulls the liquid away from you, absorbs it and prevents it from leaking. The layer closest to the body is made of synthetic fibers that are impervious to sunscreen and sand.

The ooia Feel Dry Top has special fabrics specially developed for ooia incorporated under the arm. The layer closest to the body under the armpit quickly wicks moisture away from the body. So you feel dry at all times. An additional layer of fabric is impermeable to liquids and at the same time breathable, which keeps the outer fabric of the T-shirt dry.

Can I use ooia products without needing to use disposable products such as tampons, pads or nursing pads?

Depending on the model the ooia period panty is designed to hold 1-6 tampons or 10-30ml of fluid. How many and when to use ooia period panties depends on your needs - your preferences, your plans, the heaviness of your menstrual flow, and many other factors. There is no one-size-fits-all solution.If your period is light to medium, you can most likely use ooia period panties without additional period products. If you are bleeding heavily, you may want to use additional protection (tampon, cup).

The ooia nursing bra has the function of a built in nursing pad. The integrated membrane system makes additional nursing pads unnecessary.This way you save on single-use products and contribute to the protection of our environment.

Thanks to the integrated innovative special fabric in the crotch area, our vegan ooia everyday underwear can make additional panty liners unnecessary in case of sweat, discharge and light spotting. This means that you can also save on disposable products by using ooia everyday underwear and make your contribution to protecting our environment. By the way, the ooia everyday underwear is completely vegan!

How many ooia period underwear products do I need?

Depending on the model the ooia period underwear is built to hold 1-6 tampons or 10-30mlof fluid. How many and when to use ooia period panties depends on your needs - your preferences, your plans, the heaviness of your menstrual flow, and many other factors. To cover a period completely, about 5 ooia period panties are needed- assuming that you wear one at night, one during the day, and wash the used panties after two days.

How do I know that I need to change ooia products?

The magic membrane system pulls liquid directly away from you and absorbs it safely. It is hard to see from the outside how "full" an ooia period underwear and ooia period beachwear is. ooia period underwear and ooia period beachwear feel noticeably wetter when they become too full, especially at the edges moisture can then be felt. It's often best to check in an interval that you usually would change two tampons or pads - and change your ooia's according to this time interval. Either way, you should change your ooia period underwear after a maximum of 10-12 hours for hygienic reasons.

Depending on the amount of milk you produce, you can wear the ooia nursing bra for several days and nightsand then wash it easily with your laundry.

Our vegan ooia everyday underwear you can wear like your normal underwear and then easily wash with your laundry.

Do ooia products work only for periods or only for breastfeeding?

ooia products have an integrated membrane system that absorbs liquid very quick. It protects you from leakage while feeling completely dry. This membrane system can absorb different liquids.

But not only your period or milk generate sources of leakage. The ooia "magic membrane system" can take away your worry for different situations.

Period underwear: Period- protection against leakage - and annoying stains on clothes, bed linen or sofas.

Light incontinence- but if you're looking for a panty specifically designed for bladder weakness, check out our sister brand Ida's Place!

Discharge- People have discharge every day, some more, some less, and that's a good thing! If you still want to avoid the wetness that comes with it, the ooia everyday panty is here for you.

"The drip"- a special kind of discharge is the one that comes after having sex. If you've had fun but don't have time to lie down afterwards, but still want to be out and about, an ooia period panty will keep you dry - no matter what leaks when.

Post-birth vaginal discharge- the first few days after a birth, many moms need double and triple absorbency for postpartum discharge. When things settle down but your vulva is still extra sensitive, ooia period panties can make sure you feel comfortable and protected as you recover. The perfect companions for the postpartum period.

Spotting- there are many reasons why spotting occurs, some more frequently, some less frequently, some stronger, some weaker. With ooia everyday panties, you can be sure they'll be absorbed, no matter when or how heavy they come this time around

Sweat- Sweat, is also not a problem for ooia products. This liquid is also absorbed.

Nursing Bra:

Breast milk- when breastfeeding, milk can leak out and be absorbed by the membrane. It can also happen that milk leaks from the breast. The nursing bra also absorbs this and prevents stains from showing on your clothing.

How do ooia products cope with germs and bacteria?

Your health comes first for us!

- We are the only brand to have had the anti-bacterial effect of our products tested. The antibacterial effectiveness has been confirmed by an external laboratory and is tested at regular intervals. This means that the use of the anti-bacterial agent counteracts the formation of odors and multiplication of germs.

- We have discussed the hygiene requirements for ooia with gynecologistsand had them confirmed, and have adapted the entire development of ooia period underwear to this.

- Our membrane system has bacteria-inhibiting properties at key points - so that bacteria cannot multiply and unpleasant odors cannot develop.Our active ingredient, silver chloride, is tested under the strictest conditions and is allowed to be used in Germany under Article 89 of the Biocide Ordinance in conjunction with Section 28(8) of the Chemicals Act. Silver has been used for centuries to protect against diseases. Already in ancient Greece and Rome it was used to disinfect water. It goes without saying that we do not use any nano-active substances that are controversial in terms of health.

- The bacteria-inhibiting effect of the silver chloride takes directly place in the merino wool fiber.

- In addition, you can wash ooia at 40°C in the machine.

- Unlike the ooia period underwear, our ooia nursing bra only has a bacteria-inhibiting effect integrated in the middle absorbent layer. This layer is lined with merino wool on the inside and cotton on the outside.

- Our ooia everyday underwear has no inhibiting effect on bacteria. If you want to know more about this, look here: "Bacteria inhibition".

How much fluid does ooia period underwear absorb?

The ooia Period Panty is built to hold 1-6 tampons or 5-30ml of liquid, depending on the model. So that you can see the absorption amount of the individual ooias in our store at first glance, we have shown the absorption amount in the form of drops. One drop (light absorbency) to five drops (strong absorbency). - ooias with 1 drop hold up to one tampon of liquid and are therefore ideal for your light period days. - ooias with 2 drops hold up to 2 tampons of liquid and are therefore ideal for your light to medium period days. - ooias with 3 drops hold up to three tampons of liquid and are therefore ideal for your medium period days. - ooias with 4 drops hold up to five tampons of liquid and are therefore ideal for your heavy period days. - ooias with 5 drops can hold up to six tampons and are therefore ideal for your particularly heavy period days.

What makes ooia products comfortable?

An ooia period panty is just as comfortable as your favorite underwear, and an ooia nursing bra is as soft and comfortable as your favorite bra. We have felt, tested, tried hundreds of materials until we found the ones that make ooia products a total feel-good product.

- The outer fabric is super soft - The membrane is also constructed to keep you comfortable: - Thin materials that don't add much weight - Elastic fabrics that give you full freedom of movement - Leakage protection you can rely on - Breathable layers so you don't sweat

ooia period panties are non-invasive, and work completely outside of your body. It's not healthy to constantly block vaginal discharge- either during your period, or with regard to other discharges throughout the month. By completely stopping the fluid, two risks exist: - The vaginal walls can become dry and cracked, which can cause pain and possibly infection - TSS - Toxic Shock Syndrome - a life-threatening condition that is fortunately very rare. It can occur if tampons or menstrual cups are not changed regularly or even forgotten in the vagina. This creates a bacterial hotbed, which can trigger TSS. Therefore, gynecologists recommend not to wear tampons or menstrual cups all the time, but to take breaks during which the blood can drain off. In addition, there is very little information about the ingredients on tampon packages, for example. Have you ever looked at them? It's crazy that so little is known about products that are inserted into the body every month. We also know that many costumers avoid using period products that have to be inserted into the vagina. There are many personal and cultural reasons for this, and we are happy to offer an innovative alternative with ooia period panties. And when we get right down to it: ooia period panties don't pinch and strain the way tampons and menstrual cups sometimes do, and unlike a sanitary pad, they are less bulky, don't slip in all directions, and don't get sweaty.

What makes ooia products better than traditional period products or nursing bras?

There are many reasons to buy ooia products - and you will find some aspects more important than others. ooia products are a great alternative to traditional single-use nursing pads or feminine period products like tampons or pads, and also superior to menstrual cups in some aspects. They are comfortable, there will be no unpleasant stains and they are absolutely sustainable.

How long can I use ooia products?

If you treat ooia period underwear well, it will retain its full bacteria-inhibiting effectiveness for about 2 years.After that, you can of course continue to use them as "normal" underwear - although studies say that underwear is rarely used for longer than two years. But we are happy if ooia is used for longer.

The absorbency of the ooia nursing bra does not wear off. If treated well, the material is protected and retains its absorbency. The ooia nursing bra can therefore be used for an unlimited period of time. Read everything about "Care" here.

The ooia everyday underwear can be used indefinitely - just like normal underwear. The ooia Feel Dry Top can - like normal undershirts - be used indefinitely.

Does ooia period underwear feel damp when worn?

No. ooia period underwear is made out of very high quality, specialized fabrics that sucks liquid away from you in a flash, so you feel clean and dry. We made sure that only natural materials (merino wool) are touching your most sensitive areas, such as the vulva that, so you won't sweat.

Will I sweat in ooia products?

No. ooia is made out of very high quality fabrics. We made sure that only natural materials (merino wool) are touching your most sensitive areas,such as the vulva, so you won't sweat. The layer closest to your body wicks moisture away from you very quickly, so you feel clean and dry. Plus, merino wool, which is our innermost layer, is temperature-regulating. Convenient, right?

Doesn't ooia period underwear feel like a diaper?

Overall, ooia period underwear is no thicker than 2-3mmat the thickest point, so not much thicker than your favorite underwear.

Can I wear the ooia nursing bra during pregnancy?

The ooia nursing bra was developed to offer expectant mothers an innovative and comfortable product that makes nursing pads unnecessary. It looks like a normal bra and is as comfortable and supportive as your favorite underwear. If your bras start to pinch during pregnancy, you can start wearing the feather-soft ooia nursing bra here. In the same way, you can continue to wear the ooia nursing bra after weaning.You like the design so much, but you are not a mother? Of course you can also then wear the ooia nursing bra, it is especially ideal for warmer temperatures, because it absorbs sweat.

Can ooia period underwear be worn at the beach?

Of course! ooia period underwear has already been spotted in some beach resorts and at lakes. But not only that - this is exactly what we developed our vegan period beachwear for. However, the ooia membrane of the period beachwear does not work for body fluids once you have jumped into the refreshing water in it. Because then it first soaks up water - and has no more room for period blood or discharge. Therefore we recommend to wear the ooia period beachwear on the beach, but not in the water.

What's the deal with the leakage protection?

ooia period underwear, ooia nursing bra and ooia everyday panties, thanks to the leakage protection, take away your worries about leaking any liquids, whether during your period, while breastfeeding or in everyday life. We want you to be able to fully engage in your daily activities of every month- even during your period or while breastfeeding.

Without worrying if your period will come suddenly, if your tampon will leak, your sanitary pad will slip or milk will leak from your breast. The membrane of the ooia period panty and the ooia nursing bra has a leak-proof bottom layer. To learn more about ooia "magic membrane system" click here: "ooia technology".

I already use a nursing bra. What can ooia do better than the others?

You are already a nursing mother or it's about time? Congratulations! We are happy to share some aspects that make ooia nursing bras very special:

- No disposable products.The ooia nursing bra has the function of a built-in nursing pad. The integrated membrane system can replace additional nursing pads.

Thanks to the integrated membrane system, you also save the time and trouble of having to buy and replace extra nursing pads.

- Leak-proof.We paid special attention to the positioning of the membrane system when developing the ooia nursing bra.

This way, when breast milk leaks out, the membrane system can quickly absorb the liquid and prevent stains.

- Feels completely dry.Only natural materials touch your breast. With the ooia nursing bra, nothing feels damp or synthetic - because with ooia products, the innermost layer is made from merino wool (naturally mulesing-free!). Synthetic fabrics can be perceived as uncomfortable and "sweaty", we avoid that. This also means fewer micro-plastic particles get into the water while washing. We know you guys care that we use as much natural material as possible.

- High absorbency. The ooia nursing bra has an integrated membrane that absorbs leaking breast milk. This feature is highly absorbent and can replace additional nursing pads. With ooia nursing bra everything feels dry and safe.

A lot of time and effort has been invested to find the best fit and style. It is so well adapted to a woman's body that it can be worn during pregnancy as well as after breastfeeding.

- Functionality. With the ooia nursing bra you avoid complicated changing of nursing pads. The integrated membrane relieves you of any worries and complicated handlings.

- Your breastfeeding relationship. Breastfeeding and milk flow vary from one woman* to another. Some can wear the nursing bra for several days at a time, while for some it is full after just half a day. There are also changes throughout the breastfeeding period. Especially in the beginning, you may lose a lot more milk and the ooia nursing bra may not be able to absorb it all. Most of the time, the amount of milk you lose levels off and the milk flow becomes less with the breastfeeding length. In each phase you will find the optimal use of the ooia nursing bra for you!

I already use period panties. What can ooia do better than the others?

ooia products washing and bacterial inhibiting effect

How do I wash ooia products?

Please wash your ooia before the first use.

ooia products can be washed in the washing machineand then worn again - so you protect the environment!

After wearing ooia period underwear, it is best to wash them out by hand in cold water- this is especially important for our beige styles, so that no permanent stains appear.

Afterwards it goes into the washing net into the machine at 40°C easy-care-wash cycle - gladly together with other dark laundry - it will not be damaged, really! We recommend our ooia Washbag to protect the high-quality materials of your ooias when washing in the washing machine. Additionally, our ooia Care - detergent concentrate with its deep cleaning effect, is especially skin-friendly and gentle to your ooia.

With our light-colored ooia period underwear, we recommend that you wash them with dark, non-staining laundry in the first wash and wash them with similar colors in the following washes.

Your Feel Dry Top goes in the laundry net together with similarly colored laundry off in the machine at 40 ° C easy-care wash cycle (color detergent without bleach).

Please do not wash your ooia products with heavy-duty detergent, as this is too aggressive for the wool. Instead, ideally use wool detergent or color detergent without bleach, citrate or citric acid.

Please do not tumble dry.

Please do not use bleach or fabric softener as this will reduce the effectiveness of ooia period underwear.

Also, please do not dry clean - but who takes their underwear to the dry cleaners?

Ironing is also a no-go, just hang ooia products on the clothesline as normal and it will soon be ready for use again.

If you treat ooia period underwear as well as described, it will keep its full bacteria-inhibiting effectiveness for about 2 years. Afterwards, you can of course continue to use them as "normal" underwear.

The absorbency of the ooia nursing bra does not diminish. With good treatment, the material is protected and retains its absorbency.

Wie kommen ooia Produkte generell mit Keimen und Bakterien klar?

Deine Gesundheit steht für uns an erster Stelle! Wir haben die bakterienhemmenden Anforderungen an ooia von Gynäkolog*innen prüfen und bestätigen lassen und die gesamte Entwicklung von ooia darauf angepasst. Als einzige Brand haben wir die bakterienhemmende Wirkung unserer Produkte testen lassen. Die antibakterielle Wirksamkeit wurde von einem externen Labor bestätigt und wird in regelmäßigen Abständen getestet. Das bedeutet, dass durch den Einsatz des bakterienhemmenden Wirkstoffs der Geruchsbildung und Vermehrung von Keimen entgegengewirkt wird. Unser Membransystem in der ooia Perioden-Unterwäsche hat an den entscheidenden Stellen bakterienhemmende Eigenschaften-so dass sich weder Bakterien vermehren noch unangenehme Gerüche entwickeln können. Unser Wirkstoff Silberchlorid wird unter strengsten Auflagen getestet und darf gemäß Artikel 89 der Biozidverordnung in Verbindung mit § 28 Absatz 8 des Chemikaliengesetzes in Deutschland verwendet werden. Silber wird bereits seit Jahrhunderten zum Schutz von Krankheiten eingesetzt. Bereits im antiken Griechenland und Rom wurde es eingesetzt, um Wasser zu desinfizieren. Selbstverständlich nutzen wir keine gesundheitlich umstrittenen Nanowirkstoffe. Die bakterienhemmende Wirkung des Silberchlorids findet unmittelbar in der Faser statt. Zudem kannst du ooia im Wäschenetz (idealerweise mit Wollwaschmittel) bei 40°C in der Maschine waschen Im Gegensatz zur ooia Periodenunterwäsche, ist in unserem ooia Still BH nur in der mittleren saugfähigen Schicht eine bakterienhemmende Wirkung integriert. Diese Schicht ist innen mit Merinowolle und außen mit Baumwolle eingekleidet. Unsere ooia everyday Unterwäsche hat keine bakterienhemmende Wirkung.

Is the bacteria-inhibiting active ingredient skin friendly?

Ooias are certified skin friendly and harmless to health. All marked ooia products are certified according to STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® [21.0.46579 HOHENSTEIN HTTI]. This means that all individual components of ooia, from fabrics to yarns and labels, have been tested for harmful substances.

Does silver chloride have negative effects on the environment when washed out?

The use of our silver chloride has no negative impact on the environment when washed out. The amounts of silver returned to nature by our active ingredient correspond to the average natural silver content of soil or rocks in nature. The actively antibacterial silver ions of the silver chloride product are bound within seconds in the wastewater stream by sulfide-containing components to form absolutely insoluble silver sulfide (Ag2S) and are thus no longer bioavailable. This does not inhibit the activity of the bacteria in the biological clarification stage of wastewater treatment. This was confirmed by an investigation from an independent test institute.

ooia materials

What materials are ooia products made of?

ooia products are made of carefully selected, specialized fabrics, manufactured in Europe. (Note: not all our raw materials for the materials come from Europe, this is not even possible due to climate reasons). All labelled ooias are certified and tested for harmful substances according to STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® [21.0.46579 HOHENSTEIN HTTI]. Thus, these ooias are certified skin-friendly and harmless to health. In addition, our wool comes from merino sheep that are treated fairly (mulesing free).

You can find the exact material composition in the respective product descriptions.

What can you tell me about your merino wool?

The merino wool we use for our ooia products is knitted by a very high quality supplier in Denmark. We put a lot of emphasis on the selection of our suppliers. The wool is mulesing-free.

Merino wool has unique properties for our product that we have not found in any other natural material, such as being temperature-regulating and feels completely dry when worn, because it passes the liquid very quickly.

Are ooia products skin-friendly?

Yes. All labelled ooias are certified and tested for harmful substances according to STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® [21.0.46579 HOHENSTEIN HTTI]. This means that these ooias are certified skin-friendly and harmless to health.

ooia sustainability

What makes ooia products sustainable?

ooia period panties, the ooia nursing bra and the ooia everyday panties are very sustainable products for women* on the German market!

The use of period panties causes a significantly lower carbon footprintthan tampons, even organic tampons, pads, but also menstrual cups. This was the result of a study by einhorn, which you can view here: https://einhorn.my/oekologischer-blutabdruck/.

It is also very important to us to avoid waste wherever possible along the entire supply chain. For example, it's common for sewing companies to package finished products in plastic packaging - we have eliminated that completely at ooia.

In Germany, a person's menstruation causes the waste of 12,000 tamponson average in the course of a lifetime. These discarded tampons, in turn, take hundreds of years to break down in landfills. And then some of them turn into microplastics, which then end up in the groundwater - which environmentalists are already raising alarm of.

ooia products are reusable.After wearing them, you wash them, and then you can wear them again.

ooia products are made of numerous technical and functional materials. We have selected them to be washable and reusable for a long time. Nevertheless, the functionality of some ooia period underwear materials will degrade over time. Therefore, you should not use an ooia period panty as menstrual underwear for more than 2 years. After that you can of course continue to wear them as normal underwear.

The absorbency of the ooia nursing bra does not diminish. With good treatment, the material is protected and retains its absorbency. You can find out more about washing and caring for ooia products under "Care".

The ooia everyday underwear can be used - like normal underwear from - indefinitely.

What makes the ooia nursing bra sustainable?

ooia nursing bra has an integrated membrane system, making nursing pads unnecessary. By wearing a reusable product, like the ooia nursing bra, you can set an example by avoiding disposable products and thus preventing piles of waste. ooia nursing bras are reusable products.After wearing them, you wash them, and then you can wear them again.

Is the production of ooia products sustainable?

We always take the most skilled suppliers for each product category. Our Period Panties are exclusively crafted in the EU, (Portugal, Croatia, Bulgaria, Hungary). For some other product categories we also chose non EU suppliers, ensuring a premium quality that aligns with European standards. All garment factories work ethically and ecologically fair.We are in close personal contact with our garment factories and convince ourselves regularly of the compliance with the criteria on site (such as the working conditions for all people working at the production factories).

How sustainable is the packaging of ooia products?

We use only 100% recycled materials in our packaging. Our mainly used product packaging with the beautiful leaves for our ooia period underwear is made of 100% recycled paper.

We have thought extensively about the best way to ship our period beach body, as it takes up more space than our ooias. Since we are very concerned about the responsible use of natural resources, we decided to use a 100% recycled polybag here. You notice it's made out of recycled material by the marbled texture. Paper packaging would have caused twice the volume of material and waste, which makes the polybag a more sustainable option in this case. In addition, our polybags are 100% reusable and recyclable.

Furthermore, it is very important to us to avoid waste wherever possible along the entire supply chain. Even the boxes used to ship our products from the sewing factories are reused at our logistics provider.

We use a layer of tissue paper in our shipping packaging - there's a great tutorial on our blog for how to craft something with it, so that it doesn't become trash either :-)

ooia story

Why is ooia no longer called ooshi?

ooshi is now called ooia.

We are so proud of what we have experienced and achieved with our brand ooshi in the past months. Now ooshi has grown into ooia.

ooia sees itself as a Female Empowerment Company: we see our core mission as bringing about social change for women* by leading dialogues and initiating them with our products.

We want to focus all our energy on what is really important to us: Female Empowerment through innovative Female Centric Products.

In 2019, a company objected to the name „ooshi“. In order to avoid trademark issues that would take our focus away, we have therefore renamed ooshi to ooia.

Happily, a name is just a name.

Everything that has made us what we are today remains with ooia: Our innovative products, the service and quality you've come to associate with us, our packaging and website, our company values, our community, and our look&feel have all been transferred to ooia.

Why does the ooia Moms fit as a new product category for the female empowerment company ooia?

From the beginning, our desire was to develop and offer new products for women with ooia. ooia period underwear was the first product in this regard, but it was clear that other innovative products would follow. ooia Moms is intended to accompany mothers during a special time - super soft, sustainable and comfortable. Developed by moms for moms.

What is the story behind ooia?

We have set up an entire page dedicated in telling you our story. Please have a look here: "ooia Story".

diversity & inclusion at ooia

Why are you talking about women* and what does the gender asterisk * mean ?

The gender asterisk includes all gender identities. Because not all menstruating women are women and not all women menstruate. Therefore, in the context of periods, we deliberately do not speak only of women. Because not only women menstruate, but also, for example, trans men who were born with female sex organs. Furthermore, not all women menstruate, for example trans women who were born with male sex organs. It is important to us that all people feel represented at ooia.

The outer layer is a liquid-impermeable but breathable membrane that protects you from leakage.

How do I know when to change ooia period beachwear?

The Magic Membrane System of the Period Beachwear draws liquid directly away from you and absorbs it safely. It's hard to see from the outside how "full" ooia Period Beachwear is.

Your health is our top priority! We have had the bacteria-inhibiting requirements for ooia tested and confirmed by gynecologists and have adapted the entire development of ooia accordingly.

Our membrane system in the ooia period beachwear has bacteria-inhibiting properties at the decisive points - so that neither bacteria can multiply nor unpleasant odors develop. Our active ingredient silver chloride is tested under the strictest conditions and is permitted for use in Germany under Article 89 of the Biocide Ordinance in conjunction with Section 28 (8) of the Chemicals Act. Silver has been used for centuries to protect against diseases. Already in ancient Greece and Rome it was used to disinfect water.

It goes without saying that we do not use any nano-active substances that are controversial in terms of health.

The bacteria-inhibiting effect of the silver chloride takes place directly in the fiber.

I already use a nursing bra. What can ooia do better?

You are already a nursing mother or it's about time? Congratulations! We are happy to share some aspects that make ooia nursing bras very special:

- No disposable products.The ooia nursing bra has the function of a built-in nursing pad. The integrated membrane system can replace additional nursing pads. You save in many ways, such as nursing pad single-use products and at the same time, you protect the environment and avoid producing piles of waste. Thanks to the integrated membrane system, you also save the time and trouble of having to buy and replace extra nursing pads.

- Leak-proof.We paid special attention to the positioning of the membrane system when developing the ooia nursing bra. It was especially important to us that a generous area of the breast is covered with the pad. This way, when breast milk leaks out, the membrane system can quickly absorb the liquid and prevent stains.

- Feels completely dry.Only natural materials touch your breast. With the ooia nursing bra, nothing feels damp or synthetic - because with ooia products, the innermost layer is made from merino wool (naturally mulesing-free!). Synthetic fabrics can be perceived as uncomfortable and "sweaty", we avoid that. This also means fewer micro-plastic particles get into the water while washing. We know you guys care that we use as much natural material as possible.

- High absorbency.The ooia nursing bra has an integrated membrane that absorbs leaking breast milk. This feature is highly absorbent and can replace additional nursing pads. With ooia nursing bra everything feels dry and safe.

- Fairly produced in Europe.All ooia materials come from Europe and are sewn together in our garment factories in Portugal, Lithuania and Croatia, which produce ethically and ecologically fair.

- Natural fibers on your skin.With ooia nursing bra, only natural fibers touch your breast and newborn. In addition, each of the materials of the ooia nursing bra is elastic and breathable. So you are not only protected, but also feel comfortable and do not sweat.

- Best fit and style.An ooia nursing bra is just as beautiful and comfortable as your favorite bra and can also do much more. A lot of time and effort has been invested to find the best fit and style. It is so well adapted to a woman's body that it can be worn during pregnancy as well as after breastfeeding. The ooia nursing bra is not only functional but makes the breast look good. If you want to read more about our intention behind the nursing bra, take a look here: "Story").

- Functionality. With the ooia nursing bra you avoid complicated changing of nursing pads. The integrated membrane relieves you of any worries and complicated handlings.

- Your breastfeeding relationship.Breastfeeding and milk flow vary from one woman* to another. Some can wear the nursing bra for several days at a time, while for some it is full after just half a day. There are also changes throughout the breastfeeding period. Especially in the beginning, you may lose a lot more milk and the ooia nursing bra may not be able to absorb it all. Most of the time, the amount of milk you lose levels off and the milk flow becomes less with the breastfeeding length. In each phase you will find the optimal use of the ooia nursing bra for you!

Will I have a damp feeling when wearing the ooia nursing bra?

No, the ooia nursing bra gives you a dry feeling thanks to the absorbent membrane system and prevents unpleasant stains that can occur due to breast milk. This is because the merino wool has the property to draw moisture away from the body at lightning speed and therefore feels dry.
