Can I use my Sisters Republic absorbent underwear instead of or in addition to my usual protection?
You can do either! If some days your flow is really heavy - like at the beginning of your period - and you often have accidents (leaks and stains) when using other protection (tampons, sanitary towels, the cup...), we recommended using your Sisters Republic underwear as an extra layer of protection. This way, you'll have peace of mind and will be sure to be 100% leak-proof.
If your flow is more 'normal', your Sisters Republic period underwear will work great as a replacement for your other period protection, just make sure you choose the right level of absorbency ("Light", "Medium", "Super") based on your flow (light, medium, heavy). We also recommend sticking to the suggested change times, or, better yet, relying on your senses and changing your underwear if you start to feel any dampness.
