Back up pads: period pads for use with cups / tampons
If you’re nervous about your tampon or cup leaking we’ve got you. It’s super discrete, soft and absorbent. You won’t feel it, others won’t see it. It can absorb the same amount as a tampon so can be worn all day.
When’s it for? For a normal day on your period, this is the perfect pad to keep your mind at ease
How much does it absorb? It absorbs 16ml of fluid, the same as two disposable sanitary pads or a menstrual cup
Our super comfy pads which are designed to feel just like underwear. We recommend starting with four pads but if you're ready to jump in you might want some more. Our back up pad is design to prevent leaks when you are wearing a cup or tampon and lasts 12-hours.
What else should I know?
Super absorbent, comfortable and leaves you feeling fresh. Our design is odour-killing, anti-rustle and you won’t feel any difference from your underwear
Free shipping to the UK, £2 shipping to Europe. The pads are posted within 24 hours of ordering, Royal Mail second class
Our pads are thinner, comfier and cheaper than disposables, although initially washing may seem more work we promise the comfort makes up for it. In addition, with each wash (every period) you're saving the planet from 16 disposable pads!
Our pads are comprised of a moisture-wicking layer keeping you dry, a super absorbent core and a leakproof layer. The top layer of wings lay flat next to your legs, preventing side leaks and improving comfort. The pad is held in place by plastic poppers that clip below your underwear.
The pad is 2mm thin and 20cm long (about the same as your disposable pad). It can be worn for up to 12 hours with a pad or tampon, and afterwards popped in the washing machine on a cold wash. It will come out as good as new and last at least 2 years.
All our pads and bags are made in Europe. No additional charge for shipping within the UK.

Soak in a bucket of cold water until ready to wash, if you want. Otherwise, add to the washing machine on cold (below 30 degrees) wash and add your normal detergent (but no fabric softener or bleach). Dry in the tumble dryer on a low setting or on the radiator - the pads like a heat source to make sure they are properly dry. No need to iron.

The pads are made from the most comfortable material and do not irritate my skin at all, unlike plastic disposable pads. The Full Range of pads enables me to have a zero waste period, which I have not been able to achieve before. The Night pads can handle my period at its heaviest and the Back-up one pads are the perfect size for when my period is nearing the end. The Lilypads are a total game changer and I would recommend them to anyone who has periods.
