Unfortunately, I can't use tampons. I was hospitalized for TSS (Toxic Shock Syndrome) a few years ago. Maxi pads are pretty much the only thing I can use. I decided try Always. Always is an expensive brand of maxi pads. Growing up I used Kotex or Stayfree. When I got the hospital I had to stop to pick up some maxi pads. II decided to try the Always because they were thin. I always feel like you can see the big bulky ones. And they were expensive I assumed they had to be good.
Well expensive does not mean better. These are actually too thin. They bunch up in the front and back. They slip off on the edges if you don't get the kind with wings. And for me I wear them, and I feel like they carry an odor. I don't know if it's the dry weave, but I don't like. The dry weave also chaffs me. And it's very uncomfortable.
I hate these during heavy flow. Every 5 minutes I feel like I am having an accident. I thought having a thin pad would be awesome. It is not you are constantly having to adjust. I do not recommend this product at all. Kotex or Stayfee are my go to.
