When one is not quite enough, grab a few to see you through.
JuJu Absorbent Underwear offers absorbent, leak-proof protection for a comfortable, environmentally friendly and worry-free period!
All styles are available in two different levels of absorbency and can be worn alone and period underwear to absorb light to regular menstrual flow, or as a backup to protect from leaks while wearing tampons or your JuJu Menstrual Cup. They are also ideal for wearing on the days leading up to when your period is due, so your clothes are protected, and you’re never caught off-guard. JuJu absorbent underwear can also be worn to protect from light bladder leakage or light urinary incontinence or for sweaty gym workouts.
One pair of medium absorbency JuJu underwear holds up to 5ml of fluid (equal to a mini tampon) or one pair of heavy absorbency JuJu underwear can hold up to 10ml of fluid (equal to a regular tampon). They can be worn for up to 8 hours but may need to be changed more often depending on your flow. Small JuJu Wet Bags are ideal for storing spare or used underwear in when out and about.
Designed with comfort in mind, JuJu Absorbent Underwear is tag-free, comfortable, breathable and easy to care for. Be sure to check out our Underwear FAQ for the answers to some common questions about switching to period undies!
Absorbent Underwear Styles
Three styles to choose from, all with absorbent and leak-proof layers that extend up the front in a half-moon and run all the way up the back.
JuJu Bikini: The Bikini is cut low and narrow. This style is ideal for those who prefer less coverage across the backside and don't mind showing a little bit of cheek. The bikini is perfect for wearing under low rise pants.
JuJu Midi Brief: The classic hip-hugging Midi Brief offers moderate coverage across the backside. They are a super versatile mid-rise pair of underwear that are cut a little higher in the leg than boyshorts.
JuJu Full Brief: The Full Brief is designed for those who like full coverage across the hips and backside with a waistband which sits high up, close to the belly button. They are an ideal choice when you need extra protection, like overnight.
JuJu Underwear is available in two levels of protection;
Up to 5ml Equal to a mini tampon
A light flow or as a backup for a cup or tampon
2 absorbent cotton layers
Up to 10ml Equal to a regular tampon
A regular flow or as a backup for a cup or tampon on heavy days

Light absorbency: This absorbency can be worn alone for a light flow, or worn as a backup for your menstrual cup or tampon. One pair holds up to 5ml of fluid (equal to one mini tampon) and contains 2 layers of absorbent cotton, a breathable waterproof backing layer and a silky-smooth nylon/spandex outer.
Moderate absorbency: This absorbency can be worn alone for a regular flow, or worn as a backup for your menstrual cup or tampon on heavy days. One pair holds up to 10ml of fluid (equal to one regular tampon) and contains 1 absorbent cotton layer, 1 ultra-absorbent cotton terry towel layer and a breathable waterproof backing layer and a silky-smooth nylon/spandex outer.
Note: JuJu Period Underwear is not recommended to be worn alone as your only method of period protection if you have a heavy flow unless you plan on changing frequently. Instead, consider wearing them together with a menstrual cup.
Simply wash and wear. See the Underwear User Guide for more information on caring for your underwear.
Bikini Size Guide (cm)
Please choose your style and size carefully. For hygiene reasons, period underwear cannot be returned or exchanged, despite the claim that they may not have been worn. This is for the protection of our customers and in line with our Returns Policy.
The Bikini is cut low and narrow. This style is ideal for those who prefer less coverage across the backside and don't mind showing a little bit of cheek. The bikini is perfect for wearing under low rise pants.
Sizing varies from brand to brand. We recommend you grab a pair of your favourite pair of underwear in a similar style, lay the underwear on a flat surface and compare the measurements against the table below to find your ideal fit.
Measurements are in centimetres (cm). Allow up to 1cm tolerance measurement as this is a handmade garment.
½ Waistband *
Front Rise (incl. waistband)
* Waistband measurement is taken when the underwear is laid flat (not stretched) and is half the total waistband measurement.
If you are still unsure or between sizes, we recommend you pick the size up as the extra layers sewn into the gusset and up the back of the underwear reduces the stretch of absorbent underwear when compared to regular underwear.
We recommend purchasing a single pair of underwear to check the size and fit before purchasing multi-packs.
JuJu Underwear is packaged in recyclable, plastic-free cardboard.
JuJu Underwear is made in China in a SGS verified facility.
