Pad Line Launch

The day is finally here! The new pad line is available, right now, in our shop! This line has been requested and questioned more than any other thing we make. So today I am going to introduce you to our pad line and try to answer every one's questions. If I don't cover some of the information that you were hoping for, please feel free to ask in the comments section or convo me in our shop.

Panty liners
 
This is the line that got it all started. From the very first listing they took off and quickly became one of our top selling items. They are perfect for light days or to just stay fresh every day. They are made with 2 layers of cotton flannel and a layer of fleece on the bottom to help with grip. They are slightly larger and longer than my Kotex liners and are much more comfortable. They are held in place by your underwear and I have never had mine slide around. I find them so comfortable in fact that I forget I am wearing them. They run about 7.5 to 7.75 inches long, 3.25 to 3.5 at the widest point across and 2.75 at the narrowest point.

Medium Pads

These are about the same size as the store pads that I used to use. I noticed the difference right away. I put on my little peanut pad and it felt so soft and fluffy. This is a great pad for normal days and normal coverage. They breathe while still giving me the protection I need. No more moisture lock and irritation from plastic lined pads for me. They are made with 2 layers of cotton flannel, a layer of fluffy terry cloth, and a layer of fleece on the bottom to help with grip. Stitching down the side of the pad keep your flow focused on the center of the pad and helps the pad to conform to your body's shape. They are roughly 10 inches long, 3.5 inches across at the widest point and 2.75 inches across the narrowest point.

Long Pads

These are my favorite pads! The long length gives me all over coverage so I never have to think about how I am sitting, laying, or whatever. They breathe while still giving me the protection I need plus they feel so soft and cozy on your skin. No more moisture lock and irritation from plastic lined pads for me. They are made with 2 layers of cotton flannel, a layer of fluffy terry cloth, and a layer of fleece on the bottom to help with grip. Stitching down the side of the pad keep your flow focused on the center of the pad and helps the pad to conform to your body's shape. They are roughly 12 inches long, 3.75 inches across at the widest point and 3 inches across the narrowest point.

Other Info

The edges are cut with a pinking shears and will fray. This leaves less bulk than sewing the edges under and makes them more comfortable as well as helping to conform to your body. They are held in place simply by the fact that your underwear is snug. So many people write back after trying my pads saying they were so surprised by how well they stayed in place and how comfy they were. I have never liked wings and certainly am not going to start now, especially when they work great without them.

 I toss my pads in with my darks in the laundry. You can put as much or as little care into them as you want. I for one just toss them in, but you could rinse or soak and wash them separately, it is all about what you feel comfortable with.

Starter pack with one of each
Another question I get asked a lot is how long they last. It does come down to how often they are used. I wore mine everyday to work for added security. That means I wore each pad roughly once a week. So after a year, about 52 washings or more, they became a little thread bare. The ones that were the worst were, of course, my favorites, which I wore every washing, so they probably doubled that total of washings. I still use them but have been gradually adding in new ones. They still work well and are absorbent, but look a little more on the ratty side.

Hi Michelle. I am curious about your products. I am now venturing into cloth for myself. I wonder if you would be interested in working with me to do a review/comparison of your pads to snap pads, with or without a giveaway.
