How to Wash?


A typical émer pair of panties has 4 layers of technical fabric with distinct missions:

  1.  Moisture wicking: Keeping your skin dry by moving fluids away to the second layer
  2. Absorbency: Super absorbent and anti-bacterial layer storing all the fluids
  3. Anti-leak: Waterproof layer sealing the content safely inside
  4. Main fabric: Outer layer making you look sexy

It depends on the design.

For instance, Valerie can hold around 40ml of liquid, which is equivalent to 2.5 super pads, or 1.5 menstrual cup.

Meanwhile, Roxanne should be used for spotting and white discharge only.
Look out for the flow chart and flow indicator to learn each design’s capacity.

We do, indeed!
Valerie and Amelié panties come in 2 different types of technical layer designs: Active pad and Ultra pad.

Active pads go up to the middle of your pants to allow for comfort and coolness.

Meanwhile, Ultra pads go all the way up to the pants’ lining to increase absorbency and prevent leaks.

That’s why the Ultra pad models are perfect for night sleeps – bye bye stained bedsheets!

Feel free to wear them during the day for an extra bit of safety.

Yes, yes and yes! Originally, émer panties were designed for menstruation, but turned out many users found them useful for mild urinary leakage and other types of discharges.

With anti-microbial fabric, émer pants allow up to 8 hours of protection.

However, it depends on your flow. Make a few tests at home to see how long it takes for an émer to reach its full capacity on your heavy days, moderate days, and light days, then change before the “deadline”.

We could tell you 99 reasons, but here are the top 4:

They’re elastic. They’re thin. They’re breathable. No insertion. No discomfort. Only freedom.

Odor & bacteria control:
émer panties use antimicrobial fabric, thus produce fewer bacteria (which are the main cause for bad smells), and therefore create minimal odor.

By switching to émer, you can reduce up to 300 pieces of non-degradable plastic each year.

Did you know that there is a vicious chain of reactions going on down there every month?
Sanitary pads’ materials don’t allow air to pass through.
This accumulates moisture around your lady part.
Moisture helps bacteria grow faster.
Bacterial activities incur odor.

On the other hand, émer pants’ fabrics are both antimicrobial and breathable.
They let the air move through.
They wick moisture away from your skin to keep it dry.
They create an unfriendly environment for bacteria.
Fewer bacteria, less odor, problem solved.

First, wash your émer 1 or 2 times before using it for the first time to increase its absorption capacity.

Then after use, follow these 3 simple steps:
1. Rinse under a tap until the water is clear
2. Machine wash with under 30 degrees Celcius water in a delicate cycle
3. Hang to dry in the open air. Voila, clean as new!


  1.  No, the panties won’t stain the rest of your laundry!
  2. Heat, bleach, and softener will damage the fabric, so keep them away. Dryer, hair dryer, or radiator are a no-no!
  3. Use a mesh to separate the pants from your clothes.
