Will Reusable Pads Leak?
14 Oct 2020
Last post have compared different kinds of feminine hygiene products and talked about the similarity in the design and usage between disposable and reusable menstrual pads. Both of them have wings and being fixed on the panty to absorb menses, as shown below:
Does cloth have enough absorbency capacity?
Depends on brands and designs, most of the reusable pads contain more than 1 layer for absorbency. Lovely Cotton reusable menstrual pads have different number of organic cotton absorbent layers for various sizes and leakproof layer (made of TPU, not plastic). Even though you may feel losing so much blood every month, total amount of menses would not over 80cc in a cycle. Lovely Cotton reusable heavy day pads (28 cm) and night pads (36cm) can absorb 30cc and 50cc respectively, and hence would have sufficient absorption power. Some of you may have excessive menses occasionally and an absorbent layer can be added to the Lovely Cotton night pad to further absorb 30cc, which would be more than enough. However, if excessive menses occur frequently, you may wish to visit a gynecologist for further check-up.
Wear Lovely Cotton Reusable Pads Back to Front
Without adhesive tape on the back like disposable pads, can snap fasteners tightly hold the pads together with the panties? Snap buttons themselves would hold securely until a certain amount of force is applied. Relative to plastic which tends to stay in its own shape, cotton fabric of the reusable pads can lay softly on your body. As long as you wear just-fit cotton panty (not thong style), the pads would stick to your body all the time. Of course, you can also wear the Lovely Cotton menstrual panty tailored made for reusable pads.
Usually pads are worn with the thick part at the back side but you can also wear the thick part of the Lovely Cotton reusable pads at the front depending on the amount of flow! Say you have heavy flow today but also have to actively walk or even run, you can wear the thick part at the front for better absorption and avoid the thick part move together with your booty. This trick works for all sizes of pads.
