When it's "that time of the month," you need products that will keep you clean and dry throughout the day. Maxi pads are an easy way to stay comfortable all day long but finding the right one for you could be a bit of a challenge. Whether your flow is light or heavy, finding the right maxi pad can make a world of difference when it comes to your confidence and comfort levels. Read on to discover how to choose a maxi pad and the best ways to wear it. 

Maxi Pads For Flow And Size 

Maxi pads come in different levels of thickness, lengths, and sizes. Make sure you're choosing a maxi pad that matches your current flow level. For example, if your period is just starting or ending, you'd probably do better with a pad designed for light flow. During the middle of your period, a maxi pad that's thicker will give you the level of absorption you need. Some maxi pad brands also offer their products in sizes to fit your specific body type. If you wear a size 7 underwear, these pads are sold in a coordinating size for a snug, secure, and comfortable fit. Browse different brand and sizes so you can find the right one for your monthly needs.

How To Use A Maxi Pad

The concept of maxi pads is simple and easy, making your monthly period less stressful. Once you've chosen the right maxi pads for you, simply remove one from the wrapper and take off the adhesive backing. Using gentle pressure, push the maxi pad down into the middle of your underwear. Make sure the pad is centered so that not too much is sticking out in the back or the front. If the pad has wings, remove the adhesive paper and place the wings around the center of your underwear to keep it snug. When you're ready, discard the used pad in a sanitary manner and replace it with a new one. 

Maxi Pad Helpful Tips

Here are some helpful tips to consider when using maxi pads:

  • Always choose a pad based on your needs according to your period flow and underwear size for the best results.
  • Maxi pads with wings will give you fuller coverage for a dry feeling all day.
  • Replace your maxi pad when it becomes soaked, and always dispose of it in a safe and sanitary manner.
  • You can use pantiliners during your lightest flow if you prefer something more lightweight and thinner.
