WUKA Teen Stretch supports girls and teens through their first period and beyond, with multi-size Stretch™ technology. Find out more about why we launched the collection.
What is WUKA Teen Stretch?
Riding high on the success of our WUKA Stretch™️ period pants, we decided to adapt our innovative stretch technology to create Teen Stretch. These pants feature a narrower gusset for a more snug and comfortable fit, perfect for growing bodies.
We know that raising fast-growing teens can quickly get expensive- just keeping up with growing appetites and the constant need for new clothes, shoes and sports kit is enough! But having to fork out each month for disposable period products is an expense you just don’t need- both financially, and when it comes to the planet too.
We also know that period pants are an investment, one that many parents don’t want to make for their kids when their bodies are changing so much. Hence why we’re so excited about the multi-sizing aspect of these pants- and we think you will be too!
WUKA Teen Stretch are the only period pants that grow with your teen’s changing body as they progress through puberty and into adulthood. So there’s no need to keep buying new underwear as their body develops and changes- each pair lasts up to two years if cared for properly, a complete replacement for plastic riddled disposable pads and tampons.
Great for accommodating growth spurts, body changes and period bloating. And they’re available for ages 8 to 16 years, ready for your period when you are.
Our patented Stretch™ technology means that WUKA Teen Stretch allows for growth and movement, without compromising on style, comfort or durability.
One pair fits up to three different sizes- choose from 2XS (age 8-12), S-L (age 12-16), XS-L and XL- 4XL. They stretch, they support, they absorb.
The middle layers of the gusset are designed to lock the blood in away from the body, so you stay dry and comfortable, and odour free too.
How do WUKA Teen Stretch work?
Like all our other period pants, WUKA Teen Stretch are designed to be worn like your normal underwear, in place of disposable or reusable pads or disposable tampons. So when you have your period, you just put them on and bleed into them; the highly absorbent gusset will keep you dry and fresh so you don’t need to worry about leaks, odour or infection for up to 12 hours.
We use microfibre to make the WUKA Teen Stretch, and this makes them super soft to touch and super comfortable too. The gusset is made up of many super absorbent layers, and its part suspended, part attached, so that it can stretch to accommodate all sizes.
Cool Max technology
WUKA Teen Stretch also feature CoolMax™️ technology- so they’re quick drying, moisture wicking and far superior to any other pair of period pants on the market. Great for active teens on the go no matter where they are in their cycle.
Comfortable and discreet
When you’re managing your period at school, there can be nothing worse than needing to excuse yourself to the bathroom with period products stuffed up your sleeve. True, we should not be embarrassed about our period, but the fact remains that sometimes we just don’t want everyone to know about it.
Period pants are discreet and comfortable- worn just like normal underwear, needing no crinkly wrappers or fiddly packets. In fact, WUKA Teen stretch are so soft, lightweight and comfortable that even you won’t know they’re there, let alone anyone else.
And because we know that most teens will need to be carrying their pants around with them- either at school, or while they’re out and about- we also recommend the WUKA wash bags to keep them safe and secure. Each bag has separate compartments for easy and hygienic storage, they’re 100% waterproof and available in blue, black, red or limited edition leopard print.
Super sustainable pants
All WUKA products are sustainable. Every single par of pants we make is designed to be a complete replacement for disposable pads and tampons, and we know that this is an issue lots of young people really care about. The planet and all living creatures on it needs our support, and we at WUKA will never compromise on that.
We don’t use harmful chemicals or PFAs. We don’t use toxins. We don’t use plastics.

Who’s is Teen Stretch™ for?
Teen Stretch™ is designed for young tweens and teens aged 8 – 16 navigating their first periods. Ideal for the first period or as their bodies grow through puberty. Designed to grow up to.
How does Teen Stretch™ work?
Following the sell-out success of WUKA Stretch™ – the world’s first full brief multi-size period pants – last year, we have adapted our innovative Stretch™ Technology for new Teen Stretch™ incorporating a narrower gusset, for a more snug and comfortable fit for younger growing bodies.
How easy is it to use Teen Stretch™?
Switching to WUKA could not be easier for young adults. No more awkward moments, period emergencies or leaky disasters. Designed to completely replace pads and tampons, WUKA Teen Stretch™ pants can be worn for up to 12 hours so tweens and teens can carry on with school, sports and whatever else they do for fun on their period- with nothing holding them back. Simply wear, machine wash and air dry. Avoid tumble drying- WUKA pants don’t like it
