Works okay, but very uncomfortable
I use these as pantyliners on my heavy days, in case of leaks, so I wanted something thin. They work okay for that (IF I get the pad in the exact perfect spot on my underwear...otherwise, as others have said, I end up with dirty underwear but 3/4 of the pad perfectly clean). I agree with the reviewer who said they feel and sound like I'm wearing a diaper. I can hear it crinkling between my legs as I walk. At home, nobody cares, but in public it can be embarrassing. I also have gotten hair stuck in the glue because the top of the pad does stay stuck to my underwear (and yes, it hurts like mad when you have to rip it off). The biggest thing I don't like about these, though, is how hot these are to wear. I don't know what these are made out of, but they don't breathe at all, and they make my crotch sweat. 4 hours in one and I have to change it, whether it needs to be or not, simply because it's just so uncomfortable.
After an hour and a half at work my pad had leaked through into my scrubs. As a nurse I’m up walking all day and I don’t have too many lunch breaks let alone bathroom breaks. I depend on my pad to be absorbent enough to last a few hours but after not even 2 hours I felt my scrub bottom wet from the pad leaking. The label states up to 9 hours leakage protection but that’s a false claim.
Always, we are breaking up!
So I enjoy (ha!) moderate periods. I have used Always for about 23 years. Went with the ultra thin with wings because who wants a phonebook between their legs? Anyways, I am on a plane returning from overseas having just changed my pad 4 hours ago if that. We stop somewhere along the way and I go to take care of business only to find I have bled through my jeans. The third front and back of this pad are dry as a bone. Fast forward a month, infinity pad at work... same deal. Month after that, the radiant pads, TWICE in a row. Switch to a competitor brand, no problems for like 5 months. Anyways, I run out of that brand and figure my period is light enough today for an Always pad. Guess who is washing blood out of their pants again today with half a pad pristine... Tossing the rest of these sorry excuses for pads! I had originally wanted to address the slow absorbency with the company but as I could not find a contact us link I'm airing my complaints here.
Unbelievable comfort and protection!
These are the best pads I have found out there! If you are a slender size and can't stand the bulk of other pads and find that wings tend to cause bunching, give these a try. They are super absorbent and flexible, and I love that they are unscented. I honestly barely know I am wearing them!
Excellent and NO WINGS!
These are thin, comfortable, full-coverage, absorbent and reliable. My absolute favorite pad, especially on days when I want a break from tampons. Best of all, there are NO WINGS! (Can't stand pads with wings.)
