Seeing as they’re my newest paddict obsession, I thought I’d do a little round-up of all the makers I’ve discovered who offer micro-liners. I already wrote a blog post explaining the purpose and benefits of using really small liners here.
These are my personal favourites. They seem to be just the right length for me and they sit well in my knickers. I can pull they quite high to the front of my gusset and they stay put, without sliding backwards.

These are teeny tiny and very cute. My 9 year-old loved this one and filched it away into her stash for when her time comes. This one was sold as seconds quality, hence the slightly off-centre stitching.
These are really well made and would be able to deal with a very light flow at the end of your period as well as normal discharge. They also arrived beautifully wrapped, with a little scented card to put in my cloth pad storage drawers.
UK 5.5″ “Starlight”
I haven’t tried these yet but I’m on Bec’s waiting list for an order slot so will definitely be ordering some of these because she’s a maker that I trust. Serged edges make for a really slimline pantyliner.
Another one I haven’t tried yet but I wanted to include a maker for my US readers, seeing as the FDA has made it so hard for you to buy pads from elsewhere. A similar shape to Homestead Emporium’s but turned and topstitched around the edge, rather than serged.

Pretty little liners that are extra thin and fully reversible, with cotton one side for every day use, and cotton flannel the other side for those days around ovulation when you might need something more absorbent. Read my review here.
I’m sure there are many more makers offering micro-liners but these are just a few that I’ve discovered. I’m so impressed with them that I’ve already started destashing my longer liners and replacing them with much smaller ones.
