I love Tampax Pearl Plastic Tampons. They are always my first choice. I have been using them for the past 10 years. I have tried other ones but they just don't compare. The wrappers of these tampons are quieter than other brands. I like that, because you are not in a bathroom stall making a lot of noise with a plastic wrapper and making it very obvious what you are doing. It makes changing your tampon discrete. The plastic applicator makes it easy to insert. I have tried cardboard applicators before and they are generally uncomfortable. With these tampons, you will feel no discomfort. You cannot feel it when it is in. There is a thick braided string so you do not have to worry about the string possibly breaking when you are taking it out. I rarely have any leaking issues, if I do it is because I did not change it soon enough. I highly suggest Tampax Pearl! They are great for younger girls just starting out with tampons because they are easy to insert and comfortable.
