Which reusable period pads or incontinence pads are best for me?

We appreciate that switching to reusable period & incontinence protection can seem like a big step and be a bit overwhelming, but we're here to help!

The handy table below shows at a glance which of our pads is best for you. It's worth noting that although our Fearless pads are labelled for incontinence use, they're also brilliant for heavy periods too. Popper the pads into your pants patterned side / label side down and plain side towards your body.
