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
Love the sustainability of this product. There is what looks like a bra strap to go around your underwear to secure the pad in place. I experience difficulty in using this strap, the buttons on the panty liner work amazing. I love this product. I wish there were more options on sizing such a as long.
We love to hear your feedback! You can chop the strap off if it bothers you - just make sore to wear firm fitting and not super smooth underwear to help the silicone keep the pad in place. We are hoping to be able to offer more sizes in the future (no immediate plans though!) Love from team Hello Period xx
Love the idea but it was larger than expected so it didn’t quite fit my underwear and took longer to dry, it didn’t dry overnight on a drying rack, it had to be in the dryer which I found inconvenient.
Sorry to hear you didn't love your Hello Pad. They do take longer than overnight to dry, unless the weather is really warm. The lovely absorbent layers hold onto the moisture which means they need air movement and warmth (either on a washing line or in the drier) for quick drying. Love from team Hello Period xx
Really absorbant and definitely can replace an overnight pad. The only issue is that the elastic fastener comes undone.
Sounds pretty great! Given that the pad sounds like it is staying in place pretty well, you could ret it without the fastener. Chop it off even, if it is getting in the way. Thanks for sharing your review! Love from team Hello Period xx
Love these! The reusable pads I used in the past were thick and bulky and uncomfortable and often moved out of place at night. So I tried using period undies instead, but the thick padding over my bottom gave me eczema. So I had gone back to using disposable pads (I sleep more than 8 hours so don’t like using cups or discs for sleeping due to the risk of TSS). When I saw these I decided I might as well give them a try. I’m very impressed! They are thin and comfortable and stay in place while I sleep while being very absorbing (I can bleed heavily at night). No eczema!! So happy!!!
What a great result for you overnight to get a good sleep! Love from team Hello Period xx
