Why use cloth pads? Cloth pads are better for the environment and your pocketbook. |
The average woman throws away more than 10,000 tampons or disposable pads in her lifetime. She spends thousands of dollars on disposable products, which are produced with plastics and other chemicals, and end up in a landfill or in the ocean or sewer.
Unlike disposable pads, which must be purchased over and over, cloth pads are purchased once and last for years. A set of Moonlady Pads pays for itself in just a few months of use.
Cloth pads are more comfortable than disposables: they are soft and cozy, instead of rough or sticky. No adhesives to stick to pubic hairs or tender skin; no paper to rub against sensitive parts. Moonlady Pads are so comfortable you might forget you're wearing them.
What makes Moonlady Pads unique?
100% cotton flannel and double-thick, 100% cotton terry, quilted to reduce bulk.
A hidden layer of polyurethane laminate (PUL) prevents leaks, and a layer of fleece keeps pads in place. The PUL does not extend into the wings of the pad, so Moonlady Pads are breathable- no sweaty, sticky feeling..
Pads are channeled to direct flow to the center of the pad, and top stitched to prevent chafing and bunching.
Contour shaped for comfort and stability- no shifting around.
Moonlady Pads are soft, absorbent, and comfortable. They are suitable for menstruation or light incontinence.
Moonlady Pads come in these varieties:
Deluxe Day Pad: great for light, medium, or heavy flow. These are 9" long and 6.5" wide at the wings. They are made with three layers of absorbent cotton and a hidden later of PUL. The bottom of the pad is soft anti-pill fleece. Sold in sets of three Day Pads for $15.00, or in a set of two Day Pads and one Overnight Pad for $16.00
Deluxe Overnight Pad: thicker, wider, and longer for overnight wear. These are 11 inches long and 7" wide at the wings. Overnight pads have 4 layers of absorbent cotton, plus a hidden layer of PUL, and are flared at the ends for extra protection. The bottom is soft anti-pill fleece. These pads are also suitable for post-partum or post-surgical bleeding. Sold in sets of three Overnight Pads for $18.00, or in a set of two Day Pads and one Overnight Pad for $16.00.
Deluxe Pantyliner: for light flow, spotting, discharge, or as backup for a menstrual cup. 8" long and 6.5" wide at the wings, these pantyliners are made of 2-3* layers of cotton flannel, with anti-pill fleece on the bottom. Sold in sets of three for $12.00.
Standard Moonlady Pads have a hidden layer of PUL, but I can make custom orders without PUL- just ask!
*Because different lots of flannel have slightly different thickness and nap, I use my judgment in constructing these pantyliners, for size and absorbency. The layers may vary in order to maintain a standard thickness.
