WIWTM – June 2015

I seem to have used more pads than usual this month. My period wasn’t any longer than it normally is – four days – and it didn’t feel particularly heavy. I think the warmer weather just makes me more aware of wearing them and I feel like I want to change more frequently to stay feeling fresh and dry.

I’m still a sucker for a beautiful bamboo velour but I’ve been reaching for my cotton jersey pads lately. For me, they feel more comfortable and less hot. Being the same fabric as my knickers helps too. I’m wearing more pantyliners generally throughout the month, particularly around ovulation. No one likes a sweaty undercarriage on a hot day, do they?!

So here is my What I Wore This Month…

    Where do you order these? How do you go about washing them?

      Hi, April. These are from lots of different makers. My favourites are Lady Days Cloth Pads & Homestead Emporium. If you look in the ‘Useful Info’ section of my blog, there are posts about washing them & a list of some stockists. If you’re just starting out, I’d recommend trying a few styles & fabrics to get an idea of what works for you. Places like Feminine Wear, Boobalou, & Eco Dreams stock lots of brands in one place.
