I have used these pads for a couple years now and refuse to wear anything else. Although they are "thick" pads, they don't feel lumpy at all and conform well to your body when wearing them. The absorbency is amazing. These pads have "gel" inside them that keeps absorbing even on my heaviest day. I use the ones with wings, but also have tried the wingless variety and both work well without any leaks. Overall, this product stays dry for hours and doesn't develop an odor like other brands do. The low price makes these pads even better.
