I bought these for post-partum use and they have been a complete disappointment. Hands down the most uncomfortable pad I've ever used. My main complaint is that something about the material made me feel sweaty and sticky even when completely dry. It sort of feels like you have a piece of rubber or plastic down there causing you to sweat. Other frustrations include: The extra wings on the back were difficult to get to stick to my panties. The wings themselves were small and thus inneffectual, I had to adjust the pad constantly. The size was simply too much for me, and I am not too small.
I think that if you have a truly heavy flow and you are at your wits end trying to keep your clothes clean, these may be worth a try, maybe. For me however, I found myself really missing the pads at the hospital.
I got these for after giving birth to my baby...I didn't want to use the scented types or the thinner ones and these we're recommended by tons of people online. They got you covered in every angle and then some. Luckily I didn't actually need all the coverage it provided but I'm glad I didn't have to worry.
Okay, well, these are really like a long diaper. If you have very heavy flow like I do for 2 days during my period, you will love these. I had been using the always overnight longs for my heavy days and was still going through and ruining my clothes. I ordered these extra heavy pads here on amazon because none of my local stores have them. They are thick and really like a diaper but they work REALLY WELL. Perfect for nighttime. they are comfortable but just thick and bulky. Better than worrying that you will go through and ruin your clothes.
Amazing for post partum. If you are buying for post partum, I recommend buying some "New mama post partum butt spray" and spraying it on these or put these in the fridge with some aloe vera and witch hazel on them. You bleed a lot after birth (no matter how you gave birth) and these work really well and don't leak.
If you are a heavy bleeder, these are a must. These are essential for overnight protection. I can't live without them. I have worn them during the daytime as well, during my heaviest flow days. Very long so if you roll on your back, side, or front it rarely leaks. I have very heavy flow, and so far, these are the longest, most absorbent pads I've found.
These have served me well just when I was at my witts end with super heavy flow and nothing was up for the job. They really do last all night. Also i have been known to layer a long panty liner on the inside to ensure I am covered. If you are going thru menopause these are really a life saver and the only pads besides depends that have a snowballs chance in hell of keeping you dry thru the night. Highly recommended.
