Introducing Dear Kate: revolutionary, leak-resistant underthings. The brilliance is in the fabric: Dear Kate's founder utilized her chemical engineering background to create the patent-pending fabric lining each pair of underwear. A leak-resistant outer layer protects against leaks of all kinds, while wicking fabric on the inside keeps you cool and comfortable. Plus, the inner lining is black so you don't need to worry about stains!

The Ada Hipster is a low-rise style made from silky-soft black microfiber, featuring a sumptuous floral lace waistband. Mini Lining covers just the most high-risk portion of the undies. Perfect for everyday and back-up for the just-in-case. Holds up to one teaspoon of liquid. Full Lining extends all the way from the front waistband to the back waistband so you'll be covered no matter what. Holds up to three teaspoons of liquid.

Note on Returns: Dear Kate underwear are not eligible for return. However, if you are unhappy with your underwear for any reason, including fit, please contact to request an exchange.

Dear Kate undies are made of fabric that has 3 distinct layers to keep you protected. The inner layers wick away and absorb fluids, while the outer layer traps and prevents leaks so you’re kept feeling comfortable and confident. Our breathable, leak resistant panties make embarrassing stains a thing of the past! Dear Kates are designed to replace your pantyliner for the light days, or to be worn with your regular menstrual product routine as backup protection.

How to Use Dear Kates provide protection against light leaks; if wearing as period underwear, please use in addition to your regular menstrual product routine. Also ideal for light bladder issues.
Wash and Care You can machine wash all styles in cold water on a delicate cycle and air dry. NEVER USE FABRIC SOFTENERS OR DRYER SHEETS with your Dear Kates! Fabric softeners and dryer sheets contain compounds that coat individual yarns in a garment during the washing/drying cycle making them feel soft. However, this coating can prevent the fabric from performing and protecting you like it is designed to.

Great alternative optionReview by Allayna
Firstly - I love the concept of period underwear. I've worn this pair twice and have found them to be very comfortable and protective in terms of material. They absorb well, don't feel wet and don't feel bulky at all. Not such a huge fan of the design of the underwear themselves. I'm a petite woman (5'3, 125 pounds) who has a typical sized butt and hips, though I certainly do have them (no pancake ass, roundness to hips without being pear shaped) and I find that they cut into the sides of my hips. It's like the leg holes are too small. I find they give a slight "four butt" appearance because of the elastic around the leg openings, so they couldn't be worn unobtrusively with a pair of tights. At the same time, I definitely have some room in the waistband. I'd prefer them to be a little bit more snug in the waist so that they stay up without feeling slightly too loose - they're a strange fit for me. I did notice that the models in a lot of the underwear modelling photos on this site tend to have quite narrow hips so if you have a bit more thigh and/or hips, then factor that into the fit. I'll be trying more pairs to see if I can find the "right" fit for me but until then, these are still a great addition to my underwear since I tend to have a lighter flow and can use them without a pad! :) (Posted on 4/3/2016)
Awesome Review by Horsiegirl
I have mild bladder leakage due to interstitial cystitis. Lately I have been having a horrible reaction to the Poise and Always pads. I wore the Dear Kate hipster undies for the first time to work on Friday. It was a pleasant experience. I didn't feel wet or damp during the day. The undies felt completely dry and it was so nice not to have to wear a pad/liner. I will be buying more with the coupon that was enclosed in the package. Thank you so much for helping to restore my confidence. (Posted on 11/14/2015)
GREAT for summer!Review by Ashley
Hot summer days + stuck inside working = misery. But that is not the case any longer. These underwear are cute, comfortable, and great when it is hot outside. I know I'm not the only one who experiences some sweaty business in uncomfortable places, but the full lining has pretty much taken care of that. My only warning is that these have to be line dried! I have read some reviews that they do not tumble dry well (will shrink) so be careful with them. But apart from that, they are really nice -- although not as soft as Lunapanties -- they are still worth it for the technology that allows them to wick away any problems or uncomfortable moments. :) (Posted on 6/13/2015)

Lunapads How-to Guide

Reusable menstrual products are eco-friendly, money-saving, healthy alternatives to disposable pads and tampons. Lunapads will last well over 5 years with recommended use and care! While individual use may vary, we estimate that a single Lunapad replaces 120 disposable pads or tampons.

A Conversation about The DivaCup

There are lots of reasons to switch from tampons to The DivaCup; convenience, comfort, your health, the environment, financial savings & more. This first episode in our new video series shares the personal accounts of a group of DivaCup users, and explores what motivated each woman to try this innovative menstrual solution.

Why Switch to Lunapads?

Roughly 20 billion pads, tampons and applicators are sent to North American landfills annually. Each menstruating person in North America will throw away an estimated 16,800 disposable pads or tampons in their lifetime; products that require hundreds of years to biodegrade. Imagine the difference we could make if we chose to ditch the disposables.
