1. How does the built-in panty liner work?
The liner wicks and absorbs moisture away from the body and locks it in. For your comfort, the pad has a cotton top layer. To prevent leakage, the bottom of the pad is lined with waterproof polyurethane.
2. How does the Wearever® pad absorb odor?
Anti-microbial fibers are woven into the liner and reduce odor causing bacteria.
3. How long will the odor absorption last?
The odor absorption lasts for the life of the garment.
4. How much liquid does the liner absorb?
Each S100 liner holds up to 3 ounces of liquid. Each regular liner (found in the majority of the women’s styles and the Men’s Classic) holds up to 5 ounces of liquid. Each super liner holds up to 10 ounces of liquid. Each maximum liner holds up to 20 ounces of liquid.
5. How much coverage does the pad provide?
The coverage differs depending on the style of the garment. For the women’s garments: The S100 has the smallest pad, which is similar to a panty liner. The regular absorbency pads are roughly the size of a disposable pad. The super pads are larger, going not quite halfway up the front and back panels. The maximums are the largest, going halfway up the front and back panels. For the men’s garments: The pad extends up past the fly on the front side of all styles to ensure proper coverage. The back coverage of the classic is minimal. The back coverage of the super and maximum extends about halfway up the back side of the garment.
6. Does the men’s underwear have functioning flies?
Yes, all of our men’s styles have a functioning fly. Since the pad extends higher than the fly, it is necessary to push the pad aside when using the fly.
7. How do you wash the underwear?
Machine wash warm. Tumble dry Medium. Do not use chlorine bleach or fabric softener, as it will breakdown the fibers of the pad and reduce the effectiveness of the anti-microbial and odor inhibiting elements. Detailed washing instructions here.
8. How long will Wearever® underwear last?
Wearever® underwear will last just as long as any non-absorbent panty! Depending on how you wash them, they could last up to 250 washes!
9. Are the cotton underwear 100% cotton?
The majority of the cotton underwear is a 50% cotton 50% polyester blend. The blend prevents the underwear from shrinking too much. However, we do have two women’s styles, the L17 and the L126, that are 100% cotton.
