I buy the ultra thin, night time pads with wings. I've never used the ones without wings because I'm too scared they will move around (except for them super thick, surfboard type ones they give you while in labour *shudder*) I have a diva cup but haven't used it because I'm too scared lol. So at the moment I use tampons during the day, pads at night. I hate pads though, just feel gross & icky. And I still double undie it up at night because I'm super heavy now since having my 4th & being diagnosed with Hashimoto's
Has anyone noticed how flimsy and small some of the ultra-thin 'super' pads are these days?
They used to be much better quality back in the ye olde days.
I feel like double undies keep the pad in place better and just feels more secure.
@shell85...try your cup, once you go cup, you never go back
I don't bother with pads, tampons for me. But I'm interested in one of those cup thingys but haven't got one.
I have always hated the wings... always buy the ones without wings..
I find them annoying as hell, not necessary and I find pads alot more comfortable without them.
I guess it's a bit like tampons and buying ones without applicators or buying ones with... all personal preference and since trying the applicator tampons years ago... I cant go back to non applicator.
