Pads good but strap needs work
I really like these pads and the flexibility of being able to wear with different pairs of undies (eg instead of a whole pair of period undies). The strap for me is problematic - the hook comes undone very easily and the pad flies out when taking off your undies to go toilet! I have had some near misses. Aside from that, the pad itself is comfortable and holds a lot, doesn’t smell, washes well.
Thanks for your feedback - it definitely helps us to plan ahead! We love to hear that the pad is absorbent, easy to wash and not smelly. Love from team Hello Period xx
Life changing. Thanks so much!
Yessss! Glad you love it! Love from team Hello Period xx
Great but straps rub against delicate skin
I have five of these now. I’m very grateful to the women who are responsible for this. A big thank you. The straps do rub against the very delicate corner between your thigh and private area / groin, though. The straps are not the easiest to remove, the fabric bunches up into itself so you can’t unhook the straps. The pad does not seem to stay in place either. I wonder if there could be another version that borrows the button design and style from the pantiliners instead? Thank you
Have a try with your firmest fitting underwear - also make sure that the fabric of the underwear isn't too smooth and shiny - this should help then stay in place. Once you are happy with the underwear holding the pad, you can cut the straps off close to the pad so that they won't bother you any longer. Love from team Hello Period xx
Finally Reliable Pads!
I was so excited when I saw Hello started doing reusable pads! I have vulvodynia so find reusable period wear hard to find as cups are too painful to use and not all the undies on the market are made equal. My pain inflames around my period and I find the material of the reusable pads so much gentler and breathable than wearing disposable pads which makes for a happier period experience! These pads are so reliable too! They are much more absorptive than disposable pads and are so much better with side leakage. I can wear them out and not worry about any mishaps. The only issue I have with them is when I take my underwear off ie to go to the bathroom the pad will move around a bit which isn’t ideal when it’s full, and sometimes the belt comes undone, I think it has also stretched a little or is a touch too long. They do slide side to side a bit throughout the day but a bit of quick adjustment fixes that. Other than that I love these and have bought myself more so I’ll eventually have a full set!
This is amazing to hear! We are thrilled to be part of a much more positive period for you! Thank you for sharing the details of your experience. Love from team Hello Period xx
These are so good! It barely feels like I'm wearing a pad, so easy to wash and dry too. My 12-year old daughter loves these too - she only wears period undies otherwise because she hates any other pads.
Great! We are really pleased to hear that both you and your daughter are loving the pads! Love from team Hello Period xx
