Unfortunately not a winner

These are a great idea because
- less waste
But think they need to refine their design. My experience was as follows:
- leaks very very quickly. The blood just runs through to your panty. There is no barrier to force the blood to spread into the rest of the pad, so the size of the pad is a bit irrelevant;
- I do not like the black color (not a problem with the other colors) as you cannot see the blood and have no idea of how full the pad is, what your flow is like;
- The metal fastening came off one of the pads after one wash (I have about 10 pads in total from womankind and this happened with two of the pads)
- The small size pad feels opey between your legs, it is not broad enough to create a flat area against our body
I would not recommend it to anyone but a die-hard greeny, as this might put you off the idea of leaving behind your mainstream pads and tampons.
Small changes from the manufacturer will make a HUGE difference.
Great for sensitive skin
18 Feb, 2016, By Samantha
I have very sensitive skin and have had problems with most sanitary products for quite a while so I decided to try these reusable pads. To be entirely honest they did take a while to get used to as they are quite thick, but I did not find them any trouble to clean if you have enough for rotation. They are very absorbent and are much less irritating then conventional pads but you do end up washing more than usual. After giving them a fair shot I much prefer them to the menstrual cup which I found to cause slight irritation. Overall a great product that I would recommend to others, especially if you have sensitive skin.
WomanKind fabric pads and sea sponge tampons
25 Nov, 2015, By Andrea
I use the sea sponge tampons with the fabric pads and found it very comfortable. It was no hassle to clean either of them. On my heavier flow days I use my MiaCup with the fabric pads and on the lighter days the sea sponge tampons. In my last cycle I did not even have cramps and the fabric pads contained any leaks I experienced on the heavy days. I can recommend these products wholeheartedly. It is great not to have to throw away disposables or buy any so I saved a lot of money in the old end.

I ordered the Woman-Kind Reusable Menstrual Pads (2 Large and 2 Small) and was very happy with the combination. Easy to clean, comfortable to wear (day and night). Needed less frequent changes than disposables in comparison. No leaks, highly absorbent. I got a very quick answer to a query I sent to the contact person from Woman-Kind. Did not irritate skin at all (again comparing to disposable products). Was so nice to not create waste.
