What makes MOOVE underwear so smooth is the high quality of materials. We fabricate our underwear’s outer layer from eco-friendly bamboo and the inner layer from high-quality moisture-wicking Merino Wool for that super luxe feel. Inside are the compressed absorbent layers for a super slimline design.

What makes MOOVE underwear so special is that you don’t need any other period product. We have designed a number of different styles to support the duration of your flow. You can always double up our underwear with a tampon or cup if you want that extra level of protection though!

Absorbency levels depend on which of our styles you choose as the surface area of the absorbent lining varies. Everyone’s flow is unique so it’s always best to try MOOVE undies at home for a few days so you get confident in which underwear works best with your period.

We encourage all women and menstruators to get to know their flow, it should be celebrated! So how many pairs is really up to your unique cycle. Typically we’d suggest 4-6 pairs in different absorbency styles. If you decide that you prefer to use them alongside a tampon or cup, then perhaps 2-3 pairs would be sufficient.

We’ve spent a long time testing and refining MOOVE to make sure our undies look and feel like regular underwear. The Everyday and The Easy Breezy line have an ultimate slimline feel so you won’t know the difference. The Boss and The All-Nighter will feel a bit heavier due to their kick-ass absorbency levels, but all are super comfortable and have been designed to hug your bum in all the right places.

No! Unlike sanitary pads that are usually made with plastic and synthetic materials, MOOVE’s top layer is made from Merino Wool which quickly absorbs your period inside the lining without leaving dampness.

Since everyone’s flow is unique it comes down to feeling rather than time. If you’re starting to feel heavy and the top layer is retaining its dampness, it’s time to swap over. Try MOOVE undies at home for your first flow so you know what’s best for you.
