magic membrane system
ooia period underwear designed in Berlin is as nice and comfortable as your favorite underwear, but it can do much more: it has an integrated membrane system in the crotch that soaks up liquid and prevents it from leaking.
layer principle ooia period underwear
The layer closest to the body is made out of super soft merino wool (at period underwear). It quickly wicks moisture away from the body. So you feel dry at all times. More info: click here
The middle layer consists of specialized fibers that absorb liquid very quickly. This layer is also equipped with an bacterial inhibiting agent in period underwear. This layer is not necessary for the everyday collection. More info: click here
The outermost layer is a liquid-impermeable membrane that does not let any liquid through and protects you from leaking. In addition, this layer - just like all the other layers - is breathable and ensures that you do not sweat.
what else ooia period underwear can do
ooia period underwear is suitable for all body fluids, so not just blood, but also urine or general vaginal discharge. (However, if you're looking for a panty specifically designed for urine, check out our sister brand Ida's Place.) ooia can hold 1-6 tampons, or 10-30ml, of fluid, depending on the model.
Our seams are constructed to hold liquids leak proof thanks to a special stitching technique.
ooia period underwear is as thin as possible so they are comfortable to wear - ooia is no thicker than 1-2mm at the thickest point
We love natural fibers and therefore we used many natural materials and fibers. Also, our super soft merino wool effectively prevents sweating.
ooia period underwear is super comfortable because we have spent a lot of time researching and selecting the softest fabrics. In addition, the fabrics are very elastic and soft, so they can ideally adapt to your body. Because ooia loves your body!
