    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.

    Lol, I wish there was not shame around this, 50% of the population menstruate!

    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 so want to go cup but I can't decide!! And they are expensive so I don't want to buy the wrong one. I want to have it sorted though so I can offer my daughter the option when she gets her period.

    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.

    I must say, since chemotherapy put me into early menopause, one of the nicer "side effects" has been the absence of my period. And I don't miss it.
