The Night Pad Plus is our largest, thickest pad for the times when you need extra protection. GladRags' Night Pads Plus have the same absorbent holder as our classic Night Pads, and feature extra-large inserts that extend to the length and width of the holder. Customize your absorbency by using one or both inserts. Great for postpartum, overnight use, or light incontinence.
Includes 1 holder + 2 inserts.
I had a horrible, itchy, scaly red rash all over my nether regions that every time I got under control, I would catch my period & it would blow up again. So I looked on my bag of pads for the ingredients to see what was doing this & was horrified to find NOTHING on the package. For all I know, there could be wood pulp, arsenic, & ground fire ants in there. That's when I started looking online for an alternative & I found out about Glad Rags. I was skeptical - I have a flow that just goes everywhere. I was worried that I would bleed through so I got the overnight plus which I use as my daily pad (I have a couple of normal size ones that I use as my liners for "light" flow) & it's been a few months now & I'm pretty happy. It takes a little bit of planning to make sure your pads are ready when you are but well worth not having an embarrassing & uncomfortable "problem" down there anymore.
These overnight pads serve their purpose well for overnight use... but they do have a few issues. (1) They leak on the sides. For some reason, the wings on these overnight pads are different than the wings on the day pads, and that means that, as I toss and turn in my sleep, I don't have as much side coverage protection. Without fail, every single time I've used these pads, I end up with a small amount of side leakage. (2) They're really, REALLY thick. While that's not terrible for night wear, I certainly wouldn't want to wear them in the daytime. Trying to walk around with this pad on feels like I'm wearing a diaper. (3) The insert coverage is smaller than the pad base coverage. To get proper coverage, I need to stagger the inserts, with one further forward on the pad, and one further back -- and that stresses me out that someday I'll forget and end up with length leakage too. Good news is that these pads are super absorbent and they don't cause ANY chafing or itching. Hooray!
As someone who is approaching menopause, my cycle has definitely changed the last couple of years. I have a heavier flow, and due to the type of work I do, I can't always get to the bathroom as frequently as would be ideal. The night pad works great for those couple of really heavy days.
I love the design of these pads and that they are quick drying, with extra layers of more protection is needed. Despite following the washing instructions (and only line drying) the pad shrunk in length by over an inch after only a couple of washings. Not as much, but also a significant amount of shrinking in the wings. So I guess order larger than you think you will need to allow for shrinking.
This is my favorite pad from the Gladrags website! I love the fact that it is super long and I don't have to worry about leaks and I can still feel comfortable at the same time. It's good on light days and heavy days and the inserts allow you to change the absorbency of the pad. I wear these on my heaviest days to bed, during the day when my period is heaviest, or when I just want the added security on a lazy day at home. You can wear the pad on your light days without the inserts or you can use more inserts on your heaviest days. This pad is the most convenient and versatile in my opinion and I will definitely buy more! If you want more security and to keep the pads in place you can cut off the legs of stockings to keep the pad in place and keep the bulkiness down. I'm glad I don't have to worry about chaffing and irritation from plastic pads. Love these!
