I was given the opportunity to pick out two pads, size and fabric, to review. And let me tell you it was a HARD decision, but, thanks to Party In My Pants, it was hard really only because of the fabrics...
Before I go on, the Party In My Pants website is jam-packed with incredible information. There's your typical FAQ section, which is just loaded with great questions and answers. If you're new to cloth pads, particularly Party In My Pants, they have a PIMP Prescription section - answer a few questions about your cycle and allow the experts to determine which pads would be the pest for you! And last, but not even close to least, the pad selection page - wow, the choices of size!
For the Overnight pad (on the left) I chose a flannel fabric, Bazaar. And for my Medium pad (right), I chose Hootenanny, in cotton.
The very first thing I noticed when my Party In My Pants package arrived (after I chowed down on the delicious piece of chocolate they sent!) was how incredibly thin the cloth pads were.
Floored. That about sums up my reaction to Party In My Pants pads.
I couldn't believe how discreet they were. I almost forgot I was wearing them. With other cloth pads I own (not only the ones above), there's no hiding them. I know they're there. If my clothes are even the slightest snug fitting, everyone else knows they're there...but Party In My Pants pads are ridiculously thin.
Of course, they're quiet compared to disposable pads. But even the snap was quiet compared to plastic snaps.
There was no shifting of the pads - again, another common problem. They stayed put and were fully able to do their job.
So, how well did they work? Usually, with cloth pads or disposable, I need to get up in the middle of the night to change them. I held my breath and gave the Party In My Pants Overnight Pad a full night. Not a single leak. I was amazed, and sold. Before I could tell hubby, 'good morning', I told him "I need to buy a ton of these..."
The Medium pad worked equally as well and, just like the overnight pad, blew my mind with how discreet, yet powerful, it was.
As a personal preference, I liked the flannel fabric over the cotton. It felt more comfortable (softer) to me. But, both performed equally as well.
