Although I should be at the end phase of periods at 55, I'm still getting them although thankfully alternate months seems to be the pattern.. Nevertheless the trend for pads to be thinned in the very place they need to be widened makes no sense to me. "Wings" don't work for me at least, as they were intended to.
I thought I was the only one who turned them back to front. I love washable cotton pads - no more rashes or inadvertent waxing! - but because the wings are also made of cotton they simply wick the blood around the sides of your pants to imprint two bloody lines on the inner thigh of your trousers.
