- SMALL 8.5"
- MEDIUM 11"
- LARGE 13.5"
I received a three-pack of small Dahlia Cloth pads in Afternoon Tea in exchange for my honest opinion. I already own two wet bags from Buttons diapers in the same print, and I absolutely love the pink and green flowers on the light blue background. I chose the small size because I use a menstrual cup in addition to cloth pads. The small works well as a panty liner and as a backup for leaks when using a cup during my menstrual cycle. I also like the small size as panty liners for everyday use. I especially used cloth liners during my pregnancy to protect my clothes against embarrassing leaks of all sorts! The medium and large sizes would work well as stand-alone pads during my period.
Using my new Dahlia Cloth pads is incredibly easy. Simply place the open pad in your underwear with the printed PUL facing down and the moisture-wicking microfleece facing your body. Then snap the tabs around the crotch of your underwear. Depending on your body and flow, change the pad every two to six hours. I personally store my used pads in a wet bag in my bathroom between washes. I keep the clean pads in the cabinet over my toilet. If you are worried about stains, you can rinse the used pads with cool water immediately after use. I, however, am unconcerned about discoloration on the menstrual pads that only I see. Additionally, the top layer of microfleece is also stain-resistant, which makes keeping the pads looking newer for longer easier.
In terms of comfort, I am quite happy with my new Dahlia Cloth pads. The microfleece layer is soft but wicks moisture away from the skin. The fabric never rubs me uncomfortably. The hidden microfiber layers lock away moisture. On light days, I can use a single pad for quite a few hours before requiring a change. I love that the microfiber keeps me feeling dry. Finally, the waterproof PUL layer protects my clothing against leaks. Unlike with disposable pads, I have yet to have a problem with my cloth pads leaking through to my clothes. Overall I am extremely pleased with my new small Dahlia Cloth pads from Buttons Diapers!
