Nixx Emily are part of Nixx Post-Partum bleeding leak-proof and absorbent underwear that can take up to 6 tampons worth of blood without the need for any other sanitary product. They are made of 95% cotton and 5% spandex and have mesh at the side for breathability. The extra 5th layer has been added for increased absorbency. The protective panel comes up to the waist band at the back and 3/4 up to the waist band at the front to protect you from leaks whether you are sleeping, breast-feeding, sitting or standing. The extra soft protective panel is soft against episiotomy area and the waist band is high above the C-Section wound area.
