Pelvi was created to help remove the stigma that surrounds pelvic floor issues and periods.
Since 2012, Pelvi has been designing and developing period and pelvic health products to increase the quality of life and comfort of those who may experience decreased pelvic floor health.
A standout product of Pelvi’s is their range of leakproof underwear, designed to provide comfortable protection against periods and light bladder leakage. Pelvi leakproof underwear provides a reusable alternative to single use period and bladder leakage products.
Single use disposable menstrual health products such as pads, tampons and panty liners have a detrimental environmental effect – taking up to 800 years to biodegrade in landfill. The average menstruating Australian will use between 10,000-12,000 of these products over the course of their life, which contributes significantly to landfill.
In addition to the environmental impacts of these products, many mainstream single use menstrual, incontinence and bladder leakage products contain harmful chemicals that can impact you and the health of your body.
Pelvi leakproof underwear have become a popular alternative to single use pads, tampons, and panty liners for many. Pelvi leakproof underwear is suitable to use for period care, light bladder leakage and as standard everyday underwear.
Pelvi leakproof undies have a built-in triple layer of protection designed to absorb fluid. This absorbency layer runs from front to back to provide full protection and is made of the below materials.
These layers can hold the same amount of fluid as three tampons, meaning you don’t need to change as often as you would with standard single use products.
Available in similar styles to standard underwear, including full brief, bikini cut and g-string, Pelvi undies have been designed to look and feel like regular undies. Though they have extra layers compared to standard underwear, for many people, this isn’t noticeable, and significantly slimmer than disposable pads.
While this is dependent on the menstrual flow the individual person experiences, for many, Pelvi’s leakproof underwear can be a total replacement for other products, such as disposable single use ones.
The lifespan of a pair of Pelvi leakproof undies is dependent on how well they are cared for and how often they are used. If cared for carefully, they will last up to 2 years.
Pelvi’s range of leakproof underwear can be washed in a washing machine on a gentle cold cycle. A laundry or garment bag can help to protect your underwear against unnecessary damage as well. Pelvi undies should be air dried naturally.
