We answer the most common questions that you probably have too.
A woman's body and mind go through many changes during the menstrual cycle. That's why, when it comes to protection, it shouldn't be an extra concern.
“I'd try period panties, but I'm afraid I'll stain. Plus, I really don't want to smell bad or feel wet, it would make me very insecure." – these are the most common fears that women have in relation to menstrual underwear.
But are they real?
From the start we tell you NO. And below we explain why.
Is there a risk of staining me?
Librea menstrual panties are made of very good quality materials, and the "central" part is highly absorbent. Thanks to those 4 layers that absorb and retain blood, menstrual panties give you the protection you need.
However, we must make a few remarks.
On average, we guarantee you'll be protected from spills and stains for 12 hours. However, there are other factors that will determine this period, such as your menstrual flow as well as how comfortable you will feel wearing them.
Transparency is very important to us, that's why we want to tell you that it is very important to test the menstrual panties at home and to observe more carefully how your body behaves during the cycle (on which days you have more abundant flow, how it manifests itself during at night, when you are stressed, etc.). Every woman is unique, and your period reflects how you feel on those days (stressed, anxious, etc.).
With the above in mind, we can promise you the following: you'll be able to wear Librea menstrual panties much longer than any other protection method without staining. Only 10% of our customers said they stained, but they still recommend Librea panties to their friends because of the comfort they feel and the experience itself.
If you feel you need extra protection, however, you can use Librea menstrual panties with a menstrual cup.
Do menstrual panties smell bad?
When you cut your finger, the blood doesn't smell bad. The perception we have about smelly tampons is wrong. This is closely related to the chemicals inside the tampon, but also to the completely wrong myths about menstruation.
You may smell a slight iron smell after a few hours, but this is completely normal with any bleeding from any part of the body, not just menstrual blood. For the manufacture of Librea menstrual panties we use bamboo fibers, an antibacterial material, which helps to prevent the growth of bacteria, thus eliminating the possibility of bad smell.
If your period panties smell bad, then you might want to drink more water.
Can menstrual underwear show through clothes?
Many people worry that menstrual underwear shows through their clothes. But we also thought about that.
Let us tell you one very important thing: Librea menstrual panties have ZERO STITCHES. We use SEAMLESS technology to eliminate unsightly underwear marks that can appear through pants or dresses. The panties have no seams on the side, being super elastic and guaranteeing super comfort.
You know the feeling when the absorbent is very uncomfortable and so tight, it irritates your skin? If you can Librea menstrual panties, you can say goodbye to this unpleasant sensation. No seams. No discomfort. No irritations.
Is there a risk of bacteria developing if I wear them too much?
The safety of our clients is one of the most important aspects that guides our entire activity. This is precisely why we use only OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certified materials to create menstrual panties.
"I have no idea what OEKO-TEX Standard 100 is." - you could tell us.
OEKO-TEX Standard 100 is a globally used certification system for raw materials, founded in 1992, in Germany. The main requirement of the standard is the development of verification criteria, limit values and test method on a scientific basis.
The verification criteria and limit values exceed national and international regulations. And if a textile article is STANDARD 100 certified, you can be sure that every component of that article has been tested for harmful substances and that, therefore, the article is harmless to human health, but also to the planet.
In addition, we use natural bamboo fibers for their manufacture, fibers that are antibacterial and allow the skin to breathe. As a result, Librea menstrual panties protect you from unwanted infections caused by various bacteria, even when you wear them for several hours.
Do they feel wet on the skin?
Tampons and pads have come a long way, but even the best products can feel wet on your skin if you wear them too long.
Menstrual panties do not feel wet on the skin, and responsible for this wonderful thing are micro-fibers, found in the second layer of the panties, which are naturally very absorbent, keeping the blood until the time of washing. The only time you might feel a bit of wetness is when you've had a leak, before the panties soak it up. And remember, you always lose a lot less blood than you think you do (yes, it can feel like Niagara Falls, but it's really only one cup of coffee at most).
In addition, bamboo fibers also provide a cooling sensation, allowing the skin to breathe.
