You deserve a better period

Learn more about your new favourite pad

Our reusable sanitary pads are a high-quality, eco-friendly and affordable alternative to disposable pads. 

You wear them just like a disposable pad, with wings fastening around your underwear to hold them in place. Wash by hand or in the machine and reuse!

We’ve worked with 10 different manufacturers and textile specialists to reduce the thickness of the pad and increase its absorbency so it can be worn all day. It’s cheaper than a year of disposables and feels just like wearing your underwear!

For you: Our Superstar Pad will last you twice as long as a normal disposable or get our Full Range pack with day pads, night pads and pantiliners

Heavy

You: Three hours between changing is as long as you can currently hope for on a heavy day

For you: Our superstar pad is able to absorb twice as much as a disposable, or you can use our Night Pad if you want even more security

 

Tampon or cup user

Urine leaks

Amazing! I was very pleasantly surprised how easy it was to switch from tampons and disposable pads to reusable pads. I haven’t had any rash or rubbing, even when wearing them consecutively for a week. I was shocked how much plastic we go through as people with periods in our lifetime. I love that I’m also helping the environment by going reusable. They are super easy to wash. Can’t recommend enough!read more

Smelly, wet, messy . . . that’s what I thought reusable pads would be. But, I really couldn’t say I was doing my bit for the environment if I hadn’t at least tried them. After ordering my first Lilypads I have not looked back. I was surprised just how comfortable they are, they hold more blood, and winner winner, I have never leaked at night. I am surprised just how much I love my Lilypads and how easy and hassle-free cleaning them is.read more

Honestly, it really isn’t an exaggeration to say these pads are life-changing. It is every woman’s dream that her period days are just like any other day, but the reality is that disposable sanitary products don’t give you that quality, comfort and security to make this a reality. I’m a menstrual cup user, but like a lot of people, I’m in constant fear of leaks…logical or not. Using the Lilypads reusable panty liners as back up means I’m covered in terms of leaks, and I’m comfortable.On a more practical note, they’re incredibly easy to use, wash and store. I was quite weary in the beginning about washing them, but after bunging them in the wash once I was put at ease.I would recommend them so much, I’ve bought them as presents for other people!read more

I was really looking forward to trying Lilypads. I have been a menstrual cup user for the last 4 years, but I don’t like wearing one for a week solid while I am on my period. Because of this I had been using disposable pads sometimes, but they are not very comfortable and I don’t like the waste that I produce when wearing them. Switching from these disposable pads to Lilypads has been perfect! They are so much comfier than disposable pads – I could barely tell I was wearing one as they are very thin and absorb the blood really well so it doesn’t feel soggy. They are also super absorbent, so I didn’t need to change them as frequently as with disposables. The cleaning process was also completely painless – I just threw them in with my next wash, and didn’t have to give them any special treatment. I would definitely recommend these to anyone with a period!read more

The Full Range of pads are made from the most comfortable material and do no irritate my skin, unlike the disposable plastic pads, which usually did. The selection of pads enables me to achieve a zero waste period, which I was previously not able to do. The Night pads can cope with my period at its heaviest, whilst the Back Up One pads are the perfect size for when my period is nearing the end. The Lilypads are a total game changer for anyone who has periods and I would recommend them to everyone.read more

How the magic happens

Our pad is made up of three layers working together.

The top layer (Polyester and Spandex) is really soft and absorbs moisture through it very quickly keeping you comfy and dry.

The middle layer (100% Polyester) is super thin but can store a lot of moisture, so that’s where blood or urine stay until washing.

The bottom layer (100% Polyester) is waterproof to ensure there are no leaks.

Why don’t you use cotton or all-natural materials?

We wanted to make the best reusable pad possible. Cotton is a great material for many things, but not sanitary pads because it’s really bad with moisture (just think of how horrible it is wearing wet jeans).

We want to keep our pads vegan friendly, so that’s why we haven’t used any animal products. The (wo)manmade materials in our pad are what allow us to make a pad that’s so good for you and the planet.
