ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS?

  • HOW EXACTLY DO PERIOD PANTS WORK?

    Thanks to ultra innovative fabrics, the period pants are washable and offers an absorbency of period flow (but also of discharge during the menstrual cycle or occasional bladder leaks).

    We worked with a fabric engineer in order to develop an innovative technology. The absorbent part of the pants is made up of 3 extremely technical fabrics:

    1. The first one drains the flow towards the absorbent part and immediately dry so it can prevent any dampness feeling​
    2. The second one allows an absorbency of the flow and hold it all day and/or all night – while being anti-microbial to keep you amazingly fresh
    3. The last one is a thin leak proof AND breathable layer. This allows preventing leaks while letting the water composing part of the blood flow to evaporate with the help of body warmth. As a result, you won’t have to deal with any blood-soaked sensation such as this gross wet feeling experienced with a sanitary pad!

    The technology is also based on the seamless design of the undies that assures an invisible underwear effect underneath your clothes, but also leak-free protection.

    Some panties yes, but way much better!

  • HOW TO WASH YOUR PERIOD PANTS?

    We recommend that you wash your pants before the first use​

    You can gently hand wash your period pants or put them in the washing machine.

    • When you opt for hand wash, you have to do it with cold water and use a not too oily soap, otherwise, it could damage the draining fabric. Don’t forget to properly wring out the water, so it can dry faster;)​
    • When you go with putting them in the washing machine, it’s advised to still rinse the pants in cold water first in order to get rid of all the excess blood. You can then wash your pants with other garments, in a 30° laundry, without any softener. Do not use any dryer program on it; just let it dry in the fresh air.​
  • HOW DOES THIS PERIOD PANTS KEEP YOU FRESH?

    We worked with a fabric engineer who helped us develop an innovative technology that allows the absorbent part of the pants to hold the flow during all day and/or all night – in the meantime, it’s also anti-microbial in order to prevent unpleasant smells.

  • SHOULD I EXPECT A DAMPNESS FEELING WHEN WEARING IT?

    We worked with a fabric engineer that helped us develop an innovative technology that consists of creating an absorbent layer of the pants, made up of a first fabric draining the flow and drying instantly to avoid any soaked feeling.

  • DOES IT NEED TO BE CHANGED DURING THE DAY?

    The period pants are designed to perform well all-day or all night. They can absorb up to around 15 and 20 ml which equate to the amount of blood a woman loses on average during ALL their period. You can rest assured, the period pants are the right choice for all flows! It matches up to 3 or even 4 classic tampons.

  • WHICH FABRICS ARE THE SMOON PERIOD PANTS MADE OF?
    • The "inner panel": Our objective was to offer a fabric that prevents any feeling of dampness such as with sanitary pads. As a result, we chose an innovative fabric that holds up all liquids towards the absorbent layer and dries extremely fast. Fabrication: hydrophilamide, polyamide and elastane​
    • The absorbent part is the result of a fabric that allows to hold up the flow all day or all night. Fabrication: polyester​
    • Then, there’s the leak-proof and breathable layer to ensure that the pants stay breathable but still prevents leaks. Fabrication: polyester and polyurethane
    • Last but not least, there’s the main fabric of the pants: soft and allowing you to move freely for great comfort in any situation. Fabrication: polyamide and elastane​
    • These fabrics are French and Italian. They’re all certified OEKO-TEX®, and none of them has silver nanoparticles.​

      The certification label OEKO-TEX® is a certification system internationally standardised for all raw textiles products, half-finished and finished, at every step of processing. It guarantees the absence of any chemical substance, harmful for the planet or your health in the fabrics used in the production of the period pants.

  • WHERE ARE THE SMOON PANTS MADE?

    Our seamless technology brought us to Tunisia, neighbouring country renowned all over the world for its lingerie craft. This factory is regularly controlled in order to ensure that all occupational health and safety regulations are well observed.

  • HOW MANY PADS/DISPOSABLE TAMPONS IS THE UPTAKE WORTH?

    It would be difficult to answer this question considering it all depends on the size and brand of the sanitary options you use. The pants can hold up around 15 to 20 ml of liquid, which equate to the amount of blood a woman loses on average during ALL their period. You can rest assured, the period pants are the right choice for light, medium and heavy flows! It matches up to 3 or even 4 classic tampons.

  • DO THE PANTS PUFF UP DURING THE DAY WHEN HOLDING THE FLOW?

    The pants don’t get all puffy, as we worked with a fabric engineer in order to develop innovative technology. The absorbent part of the pants is made up of 3 extremely technical fabrics:

    1. The first one drains the flow towards the absorbent part and immediately dry so it can prevent any dampness feeling
    2. The second one allows an absorbency of the flow and hold it all day and/or all night – while being anti-microbial to keep you amazingly fresh
    3. The last one is a thin leak proof AND breathable layer. This allows preventing leaks while letting the water composing part of the blood flow to evaporate with the help of body warmth. As a result, you won’t have to deal with any blood-soaked sensation such as this gross wet feeling experienced with a sanitary pad!
  • HOW MANY PERIOD PANTS YOU NEED FOR A MENSTRUAL CYCLE?

    We recommend that you have at least two of them and ideally 3. This allows you to wear them during the entire time of your period.

  • WHY OPT FOR A SEAMLESS PERIOD PANTS?

    There are three reasons explaining why at Smoon, we chose to design seamless period pants:​

    1. To offer you additional comfort
    2. To make our period pants invisible underneath our clothes, even our leggings​
    3. To ensure the leak-proof layer hadn’t been perforated by a seam, and create an extremely reliable and leak-proof barrier!

    For additional comfort and an invisible effect underneath your clothes, only the part at the crotch is made of several layers of fabrics; the remaining parts of the pants don’t have any lining.

  • HOW LONG DO THE PERIOD PANTS LAST?

    We chose the finest materials so you can rest assured and know that your SMOON period pants are there to last!

    The fabrics being absorbent and anti-microbial, there are no time limits to the period pants performance. However, it will get used with time as any other undies. How quick it’s going to get worn out depends on how you use them and the way you wash them. We reckon they should last you around 2 to 5 years, and maybe even more!

  • CAN THEY BE USED FOR BLADDER LEAKS?

    SMOON pants can be used for light bladder leaks. They’re perfect for pregnant women or new mothers who can sometimes experience occasional leaks. They can also be used when you have discharge during your menstrual cycle. You can now forget about panty liners expenses!

  • CAN I WEAR MY PERIOD PANTIES WITH A SANITARY PAD?

    No, you can’t wear the period pants with a pad or a panty liner as it would make the absorbent part of the pants totally useless. However, you can still wear the period pants in addition to a cup or a tampon.
