WHY WOULD YOU MAKE “HEAVY FLOW” PADS WITHOUT WINGS??
Like, aside from the entire bottom of the pad being sticky, I feel like the wings are what really holds the pad down. Once I fold those bad boys under, I know that shit ain’t goin’ nowhere. It’s like extra insurance.
A few months ago (like, last year, I don’t even know), I was at school and had NO pads during a particularly bloody week, so I scrounged up my last few dollars and went to Target and bought a 32-count box of Always Infinity pads. Always has always (hah!) been my favorite brand, and I use both the normal-sized (yellow) and medium-sized (green) pads. Imagine how upset I was to get all the way to my dorm only to discover that the pads HAD NO WINGS. WOW, MY MISTAKE, I WASN’T AWARE THAT I WAS ACTUALLY SHOPPING IN SATAN’S WAREHOUSE. I cried. I sat on the floor, literally in a pool of my own blood, and cried.
Fuck you, wingless pads. You have no business costing $7+ when you haven’t even convinced me that you’re going to stay put. Now I have an almost entire box of these perfectly good (in someone’s opinion, certainly not mine) pads sitting in my drawer at home. It’s not like I’m just gonna throw them away, because I spent money on them, but who the fuck really wants to use wingless pads, especially during a “heavy flow”?
Go sit in the corner, Always, and think about what you have done.
*And don’t tell me to “just use tampons.” I don’t fucking like tampons, okay? I think that they’re really gross, and just, no.
