I am impressed!
Absolutely superb quality! And they look simply stunning. Would love to see a wider range of briefs with very light absorbency.
Just’nCase Stripe Midi Briefs with Everyday Absorbency are your new best friend on light-to-medium period days and if you wee a bit when you cough, sneeze or laugh.
Available in black stretch fabric, they look, feel and fit just like ordinary underwear, but with the added bonus of an absorbent, leakproof panel – our catch-all solution for life’s little leaks.
Halfway between a bikini and full brief, this on-trend midi style hugs the hips, with a cheeky, cutaway back view featuring a flattering diagonal mesh self-stripe.
Our Stripe Midi Briefs have a snug fit, so please measure your hips and check our Size Guide before ordering. If you’re between sizes we recommend you size up rather than down with this style.
The slimline 2mm/.08 inch thick gusset of our Everyday Absorbency underwear has been independently lab-verified to absorb at least 25ml/.85 fl oz, or more than five tampons. Read reviews.
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 Stripe Midi Briefs with Everyday Absorbency offer protection for light-to-medium period days and everyday peace of mind for light bladder leakage.
Independent lab testing shows they absorb more than five regular tampons.
For light bladder leakage, Just’nCase Stripe Midi Briefs with Everyday Absorbency offer protection approximately equivalent to single-use liners such as Poise Daily Liners or Lights by Tena Long Liners.
On heavier period days, or if you have moderate bladder leakage, you may prefer to try one of our styles with Extra 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 Stripe Midi Briefs with Everyday 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.)

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.
* The following is a graphic depiction of comparative results based on UL Laboratories testing of Confitex and selected leading brands of single-use absorbent liners and pads undertaken January-April 2020.
Our Stripe Midi Briefs have a snug fit, so please measure your hips and check the Size Guide below before ordering. If you’re between sizes we recommend you size up rather than down with this style.
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: 82% POLYAMIDE, 18% 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 because they contain our patented leakproof textile instead of the layer of PU plastic used by most other brands, 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 Stripe Midi Briefs with Everyday Absorbency are designed for light-to-medium period days and light bladder leakage. They absorb at least five regular tampons’ worth of flow. For heavy period days, post-baby bleeding and light-to-medium incontinence we recommend our Extra Absorbency styles, which absorb and retain more than ten tampons’ worth of flow. 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 Stripe Midi Briefs in black.
What sizes are available?
We currently manufacture Just’nCase Stripe Midi Briefs 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 because they contain our patented leakproof textile instead of the layer of PU plastic used by most other brands, 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.

Absolutely superb quality! And they look simply stunning. Would love to see a wider range of briefs with very light absorbency.
a little tight but very comfortable
Thank you for your review. This style has less stretch than our other styles, so for visitors to the site who are seeing this review, we recommend that you look at the size guide and choose your size with this information in mind. Kind regards, Confitex Customer Care
Based on feedback around snugness, I opted for a larger size than I would normally and I’m so happy I did. The large fit perfectly. A really versatile everyday design that covers me for whatever I have planned to do – working and sitting in the office or running about at the gym – great movability with no leaks and really breathable with the stripe design. Very happy with this underwear - could live in these!
Great absorbency and style although they do fit smaller than the higher cut briefs so I don’t find them AS comfortable
Hello, thank you for your review!
You are right, our Stripe Midi Briefs do fit smaller than our full brief designs. We recommend you use our Size Guide and go up if you are in-between.
Helpful info to get the size choice right, answers to questions and quick delivery all brought great service. I have really enjoyed using these period panties!! They fit snug to feel secure, I don’t feel wet, they lasted the whole day, and dried just fine in the dryer. They feel way more comfortable than wearing pads. I’ve already ordered more!
They look just like normal knickers . They are comfortable and made of good fabric.
Great product. Really like the lower rise cut, although lower still would be even better as I am quite petite.
Love the dryer friendliness of these pants!
I absolutely love these undies. They are super comfortable, super absorbent and best of all they are sustainable. I’m never going back to pads and tampons.
When I saw that Confitex had a new midi style it got me so excited!! Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love their high waisted styles, but having a midi just gave me more choice and I appreciate that.
I'm normally a Small and had to size up to fit me better, but otherwise, I love them! Highly recommend.
These are my new faves next to the lace. The midi cut is nice when you don't want pressure on your period bloat. I like having a cute cheekier pair!
