LACE MIDI BRIEFS
Just’nCase Lace Midi Briefs with Extra Absorbency can be worn for either period or pee protection – without sacrificing your sense of style! They have been lab-verified to
absorb at least 50ml
/1.7 fl oz, or more than ten tampons, so they’re
perfect for heavy periods and light-to-moderate bladder leakage
Available in indigo, they look, feel and fit like your favourite sexy underwear, but with the added bonus of a slightly thicker (4mm/.16 inch) super-absorbent leakproof panel. Read reviews.
Halfway between a bikini and full brief, this on-trend midi style with a medium rise waistband is designed to hug the hips, with a feminine lace back panel delivering the ultimate comfortable and flattering fit while eliminating visible panty line.
Our Extra Absorbency underwear have been independently proven to offer a better combination of absorbency capacity and leakproof performance than any other brand of reusable absorbent underwear.
What sets Just’nCase apart from other absorbent underwear is Confitex’s patented textile technology, which has been lab-verified hyper-absorbent, leakproof, odour-resistant, breathable, durable and free of potentially harmful substances. Read more on our blog.
Because of their superior absorbency, Just'nCase underwear may take longer to dry than your usual laundry. But the good news is that, unlike most other brands, they can be safely tumble-dried – a bonus for busy lives!

See how our pee-proof and period-proof pants compare with pads and tampons. Different people have different needs, so individual results may vary. Many of our new customers like to buy one pair to trial in the privacy of their home, then once they know they’ve got the right size and absorbency they come back to buy multiple pairs.
Alysia’s story: I’ll never wear a tampon again
“I've been using Confitex period underwear for a little while now and I can't believe I didn't get them sooner! They feel and look amazing, giving me that feminine sexy feel when I really need it. I don't ever fear that I might leak because they hold so much. Knowing I can be waste-free with my periods is such a great feeling. I'll never wear a tampon again!"
Phillipa’s story: The cost saving is a bonus
“I started using Confitex a few years ago mainly for environmental reasons – I hated the thought of all the disposable liners for light leakage going to the landfill. A bonus was the cost saving and, even better, the convenience of wearing Confitex instead. While I liked your previous range, your new one is even better! I bought one each of the everyday and full briefs to try. I have discovered that the everyday pair is sufficient, and I am definitely planning to purchase more.”

Just’nCase Lace Midi Briefs with Extra Absorbency offer superior protection when you need a little more reassurance – on heavy period days or for moderate bladder leakage.
Independent lab testing shows they absorb more than 50ml/1.7 fl oz – or ten tampons worth of flow.
For bladder leakage, Just’nCase Lace Midi Briefs with Extra Absorbency offer protection approximately equivalent to single-use pads such as Poise Regular Pads. See our comparative chart below.
On lighter period days, or if you have only light bladder leakage, you may prefer to try our Lace Midi Briefs with Everyday Absorbency.
If you have little or no bladder control, we’re sorry our underwear will not meet your needs.
To provide transparency and guidance in a largely unregulated industry characterised by unsubstantiated absorbency claims, we commissioned leading international standards laboratory UL to subject our products to stringent testing. Testing showed that Just'nCase Lace Midi Briefs with Extra Absorbency absorb at least 25ml of liquid at a speed of at least 0.23 ml/sec. (In fact, the total absorbency verified by UL was substantially higher than this, but we have chosen to more accurately reflect the volume that can be accommodated without leakage in a real-life situation that allows for gravity, movement and compression.)

HOW DO WE MEASURE UP?
Wondering how our underwear compare to disposable pads, liners and tampons? We commissioned independent standards testing laboratory UL* to test them against leading single-use paper products. Here's where they fit on a scale of absorbency.

WOMEN’S SIZE GUIDE
Our sizing categories (XS, XL etc) are based on international standards and can be used as a general guide, but actual measurements are more likely to result in the perfect fit. We strongly advise that you measure yourself before ordering, rather than just guessing.
Many of our new customers like to buy one pair to trial in the privacy of their home, then once they know they’ve got the right size and absorbency they come back to buy multiple pairs.
Measure around the widest part of your hips and buttocks, keeping tape parallel with the floor, then consult our chart.

UNDERWEAR FRONT: 78% POLYAMIDE, 22% ELASTANE. UNDERWEAR BACK: 86% POLYAMIDE, 14% ELASTANE. ABSORBENT TEXTILE: 97% POLYESTER, 3% ELASTANE. CRAFTED WITH CARE FOR 100% CONFIDENCE.
Our leakproof absorbent underwear can be hand or machine washed just like your ordinary underwear – and if you don't have the time or inclination to hang them on the washing line you can safely pop them in the tumble dryer instead without impacting their leakproof performance (the plastic layer in other brands tends to shrink and warp in the dryer, leading to leaks). They can also be dried in an airing closet or on an indoor drying rack or heated towel rail. They’ll dry faster if turned inside out, and will take about the same amount of time to dry as a pair of thick sports socks.
Wash and dry before use to activate fibres for full absorbency. Turn inside out to rinse after use, then wash on delicate cycle below 40°C/105°F, or hand wash separately if you prefer. Do not bleach, do not use fabric conditioner, do not dry clean. Dry away from direct sunlight or tumble dry on low heat. For further instructions see our FAQs
Frequently asked questions
Which level of absorbency do I need?
Just’nCase Lace Midi Briefs with Extra Absorbency provide convenience and peace of mind to women experiencing heavy period days, post-baby bleeding or light-to-medium incontinence. They absorb at least ten tampons’ worth of flow. On your light days, or if you have light bladder leakage you may prefer to try our Lace Midi Briefs with Everyday Absorbency, which absorb and retain up to five regular tampons’ worth of flow. Some women like to have a few pairs of each on hand so they can wear the lighter version for everyday use, with the option of a higher absorbency at night, when exercising or when they require extra reassurance. If you have little or no bladder control, we’re sorry our underwear will not meet your needs. Please discuss your options with your health professional or carer.
Are they cost effective?
Designed to be worn again and again, Just’nCase briefs can be thrown in the washing machine and tumble dryer and have been lab-tested to withstand as many washing and drying cycles as ordinary underwear. They cost about the same as a pair of designer panties and last just as long. And because you’re not buying tampons, pads or liners as well, you’ll actually save money in the long run! Find out more on our blog.
Why are they better for the planet?
Unlike single-use pads and liners, Just’nCase underwear do not contain a layer of PU plastic, making them an environmentally friendly solution to life’s little leaks. They can be washed and reused over and over again, reducing the amount of rubbish you send to landfill.
What colours are available?
We currently manufacture Just’nCase Lace Midi Briefs with Extra Absorbency in indigo. Our Lace Midi Briefs with Everyday Absorbency are available in silver.
What sizes are available?
We currently manufacture Just’nCase Lace Midi Briefs with Extra Absorbency in sizes XS to 2XL. See our Size Guide for details.
How long do they take to dry?
Our absorbent underwear can be hand or machine washed just like your ordinary underwear – and you can safely pop them in the tumble dryer without impacting their leakproof performance. They can also be dried in an airing closet or on an indoor drying rack. They will take a little longer than ordinary underwear to dry – about the same as a pair of thick sports socks.
Why wouldn’t I keep using pads, liners or tampons instead?
Just’nCase absorbent underwear are a more environmentally friendly solution to life’s little leaks than single-use pads, liners and tampons. Many women tell us they are more comfortable and perform better than single-use alternatives. They also tell us they’re saving money by not having to constantly buy pads, liners or tampons, and they prefer the convenience and discretion of ordering our underwear online, rather than at the supermarket checkout. We know our absorbent underwear are life-changing because you tell us so all the time – read some of your stories.

I bought it for someone s birthday. It came fast and she thought they were pretty, the right size and very happy. She was talking about buying more. I too have an incontinence problem, I'm thinking about getting a pair for myself to use in between Botox treatments. When my Botox is wearing off. Or maybe someone will get me a pair for my birthday next month.That would be great.

These are very pretty and do not look like the no leak they are. Was very impressed with the quality. The leak protection is fantastic.
- BFBonnie F.Verified BuyerI recommend this productUsed for Both period & bladder leakageRated 5 out of 5 starsPretty!
They work and are pretty! Also are the first leakproof panties I’ve tried that are low enough in back that they don’t touch my spinal injury. Amazing! I bought more.
- PMPhilippa M.Verified BuyerI recommend this productUsed for Bladder leakageRated 5 out of 5 starsLook great and comfortable
I bought this for peace of mind on a trip we are about to do which includes long flights and day treks. So far I have only checked to see that it fits well which it does. It is also looks nice. It is quite a bit heavier than normal underwear with a liner but does not feel bulky to wear.
I have washed it and did find that it took a long time to dry which I hope won't cause me problems whilst travelling.CNConfitex NZ
Thanks for your feedback!
Due to the high-performance textile Confitex underwear definitely does take longer to dry than regular underwear. However, unlike other brands it's safe to pop Confitex underwear in the tumble drier on low heat to speed up the drying process.

- SPSiobhan P.Verified BuyerI recommend this productUsed for Bladder leakageRated 5 out of 5 starsLove these pants
I run every day and these pants have made it so much easier as I am prone to bladder leakage since having my second child in my mid 30s- twenty years on, it’s great that I can continue to run regularly with the peace of mind of no embarrassment or need for wasteful pads. I now have 3 pairs
- BJBriar J.Verified BuyerI recommend this productUsed for PeriodRated 5 out of 5 starsBeautiful
Absolutely love confitex undies! I've tried both the lace versions and they are so comfortable as the fabric keeps you cool and they don't dig in to your hips or stomach so is good for days when your bloating or having cramps, also the gusset is great and truly wicks the moisture away from your body so you don't feel uncomfortable (I found other brands the liquid would sit on top and wouldn't sink in properly)
Would reccommend whole heartedly! Please keep making these undies, I will keep coming back to them as they are truly the best out there
