About Proof

Proof undies look and feel just like normal undies but have built-in, leakproof technology.

Our Quick-Wick liner pulls moisture away from the body and into the super absorbent core. Antimicrobial fibers inhibit the growth of bacteria and reduce odor, helping you to feel fresh and dry. Leak-Loc™ edges seal in leaks and prevent liquid from escaping the undies.

Wear as you would normal undies, and then machine wash and reuse again and again!

Proof undies combine patented technology with soft, smooth fabric and thoughtfully designed details.

The materials in Proof have been rigorously tested in an independent laboratory according to STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®, an international association that ensures the highest level of safety. 

All Proof undies are free of PFOA/PFAS, lead, phthalates, and other harmful chemicals and are Prop 65 compliant.

In a nutshell: we are committed to providing the highest quality care down there.

All Proof undies feature our specially crafted leak protection – the higher the absorbency, the more layers of protection!

Here’s a quick absorbency breakdown:


- Super Light: Holds 1/2 Regular Tampon or 1/2 Teaspoon
- Light: Holds 1 Regular Tampon or 2 Teaspoons
- Moderate: Holds 3 Regular Tampons or 6 Teaspoons
- Heavy: Holds 4 Regular Tampons or 8 Teaspoons
- Super Heavy: Holds 5 Regular Tampons or 10 Teaspoons

We typically suggest buying your normal undie size. Some styles run a tad bit roomier, so be sure to check out our size guide and reviews by style to find your best fit!

Proof undies are designed for comfort and all-day wear. Our Super-Light, Light and Moderate undies feel just like your favorite pair of regular underwear. Our Heavy and Super-Heavy styles may feel slightly more substantial due to their highly absorbent construction, but they will still feel super comfortable.

Most importantly, you’ll love the extra protection.

Care

Yes! One of the biggest benefits of switching to Proof is that our ultra absorbent undies are machine-washable and reusable, so you can use them again and again.

Not only does this keep single-use plastic period and incontinence products out of landfills and oceans, but can save you money over the lifetime of your Proof undies. Talk about a win-win!

Proof undies feature strong protection, but should be washed gently. Simply toss in the washing machine on a delicate cycle, using cold water and mild detergents. Hang or lay flat to dry.

To learn more about how to care for your pair, keep reading. 

Depending on absorbency level and humidity level, Proof undies can take between 6 and 24 hours to dry. To expedite the drying process, blot away excess moisture before laying flat or hang drying. 

Just like most intimates, how long they last depends on how well you care for them. Proof undies are comparable with other undies and last between 2-3 years on average. Be sure to follow our care instructions to help your  undies last even longer.  

Proof undies are equipped with moisture-wicking lining and antimicrobial fibers that inhibit the growth of bacteria and reduce odor.

If you want to refresh and sanitize your undies, simply add a few drops of vinegar or tea tree oil to your washing machine during the rinse cycle and complete washing as normal. Voila! So fresh and so clean.
