GladRags Day Pads have a unique three part design which allows you to customize the pad according to your flow. Choose one or two absorbent inserts to place inside the envelope-style holder, or use the holder alone for an ultra-slim liner!
Our Day Pad is equivalent to a standard-size maxi pad. Our Day Pad Plus features additional length for an extended coverage area.
Includes 1 holder + 2 inserts.
I lost some of my Color Day Pads during a residence change last year. (I use them as backup for The Keeper.) Instead of immediately placing an order to GladRags, I bought a package of disposable "sanitary" napkins. Since I've only used cotton flannel for the last 20+ years, I'd forgotten all about how the paper products CHAFE if you're a woman who is at all active. Thanks GladRags for making such comfortable, ecological and body honoring products. Sometimes I think about all the disposable napkins that didn't end up in a landfill because of you guys making your products available to eco-minded women like myself. Over more than two decades, that's a LOT of waste prevented. Thanks again!
GladRags are amazing! My only regret is that I didn't hear about them sooner. However, I'm glad to now them now and excited about making the switch to cloth pads-being more environmentally friendly and saving money. The pads are so soft and so comfortable. No crinkly plastic sounds that you get from pads, you literally put them on and go. I look forward to doing business with these guys for the rest of my period days and spreading the word!
I decided to give these a try about 2 years ago, and I love them. I'm no longer putting used pads in the garbage and just need to wash them between uses. I find these do occasionally shift and result in a leak some near the top. With disposable pads, the wings were never big enough and I always had a leak on the side that no amount of adjusting would solve. I'm giving the plus ones a try to see if that fixes the problem for me. No matter what, I'm not going back to disposable pads. I'd rather have a little bit more laundry every month then put more into a landfill then I need to.
Great little pad! It is very comfortable and works great!
The first day I used these, I sang about it. All day. Seriously, these are life-changingly AWESOME. They are the first pads I've ever worn that have not tried at any point to crawl up my crack (either front or back). Also, I was a little afraid that they might move around when I walked for long distances, but they never did. So soft, so easy, so freaking wonderful. My vagina has never been happier (though don't mention that to my husband, who may not like playing second fiddle to organic pads, no matter how cheerful and soft they are)!
I switched to Glad Rags several months ago and I will NEVER go back to disposable menstrual products. Glad Rags are comfortable and cute. I don't have to worry about overflow, they are super absorbent. I have the pads in all shapes and sizes. The day pad works well for me along with a menstrual cup. I love being able to select different absorbencies using the additional inserts.
I've been using cloth pads for over ten years, these are by far the softest and best designed ones out there--the 3-in-one set up is genius, you get a liner and super-heavy pad all together, plus the wide wings prevent leaks. The flannel fabric is super soft (& gets softer after each wash) and the prints available are so fun, it's a kick to see ether each month!
I've been using these for a little over a year now, and they're wonderful! There are a few tricks that I've learned to keep yours looking better than my first ones did, but even if they aren't quite as pretty as they were last year, they still hold very well! 1- Make sure you wash them in cold water, always. They'll hold their color much better and STILL be sanitary when washed in cold water. Don't hit the warm/cold button on the washing machine as much as you want to! 2- Make sure you change the water you keep your used pads in daily. It helps keep them clean and makes them a bit less smelly when you get to doing your wash at the end of the week. 3- Even though the clasps are super secure, make sure you help keep your pads where you need them! Mine always like to move on me during the day, so sometimes I need to excuse myself to the bathroom to put it back in place. I'm super grateful for GladRags and I love them bunches!
I have used GladRags and now my beautiful girls are choosing to use them as well. I'm so proud of our choice to use environmentally sustainable products, and grateful they are available for us to purchase. Thanks Glad Rags!!!
