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

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

Lilypads are amazing!! They are so thin and comfortable and surprisingly absorbent, I don't even notice them when I 'm... wearing them which is exactly what I want. Definitely the best reusable pad I've tried and miles better than disposables! Would 100% recommend!read more

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

Shipping

Free shipping to the UK, £2 shipping to Europe. The pads are posted within 24 hours of ordering, Royal Mail second class

Additional information

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.
