Nixi Body knickers give women and girls leak-free and VPL-free confidence so they can stay active without letting their period or bladder leaks pause their riding.
50% of young girls say they have skipped playing sport because of their period. We sadly still live in a society where period shame, bladder incontinence and fear of leaks stop women from living their life to the fullest - both in and out of the saddle.
Dedicated to keeping women and girls in sport, Nixi Body was founded by mum of six, Kelly Newton. After dealing with incontinence brought on by childbirth and then early menopause, Kelly had tried every pad and knicker on the market and hated the way they looked and felt.
She wanted absorbent knickers that would look great under gym leggings and make her look and feel amazing - without worrying about leaks. She designed her first pair of knickers and took the plunge into starting the business. The rest is leak-free history.
The name NIXI comes from a group of Greek goddesses who were known to support women across various reproductive health stages - but particularly through childbirth.
The brand's aim is to keep women moving through menstruation, motherhood and menopause. A desire to stay active was the biggest driver for Kelly to design her first pair of leak-proof underwear back in 2019. We know the massive impact that exercise can have on our mental and physical health - whether dealing with PMS, the challenges of having a new baby or navigating menopausal symptoms.
In addition, switching to washable knickers can save thousands of tonnes of pad and tampon waste from ending up in landfill and our oceans.
