I am not a big pad user, but on occasion I do use them. I used to buy always pads but the regular ones. After I gave birth to my daughter my cousin told me to get these and use them because she thought they were the greatest pads ever made. Needless to say I had to try them because it was summer time and after being used to using tampons for years I was not liking to pads and was very hot and uncomfortable with the ones I had been using. Always radiant infinity pads are way different then any other pad on the market. I have used several brands of pads and most of them are more or less the same. Some have fancy bright colored wrappers and promises of being comfortable, thin, and soft but they dont compare to these. They are different in every way. The parts that touch your skin are super soft and comfortable. They are made from totally different stuff than every other pad. They are not bulky and are thin but very absorbent. This is going to sound weird, but they remind me of a shoe insole! I was so amazed that they were so different so I opened one up and cut it in half just to check it out. Anyone who uses pads needs to try them and I bet they will replace the others they buy. They dont leak, super comfortable, very soft, flexible, and breathable. I cant imagine anyone not liking them better than the other brands. I highly reccomend them!
