Who doesn't want an adorable, one-of-a-kind, hand-sewn menstrual pad? Party in My Pants makes your period fun! These reusable cloth pads have snap closures instead of adhesive, and are super-thin while being ultra-absorbent! The inside material is super-soft cotton flannel and the backing is waterproof to protect against leaks. They also fold up cleverly for tossing in your bag. Amazing!
There is a huge variety of designs to choose from, so we'll just pick one out for you, but you have your choice of five different sizes and absorbencies:
Liner - 5"x9" (for very light flow, the thinnest of all the pads)
Small - 6"x 10" (built-in quilted soaker layers!)
Medium - 6"x11.5" (more absorbent, same size wings)
Large - 7"x10.5" (even more absorbent with longer wings)
Overnight - 7"x12.5" (longest, widest, and most absorbent)
Staff Product Review:
"I have been using cloth pads for years and have never loved them like I do these! So super soft and ultra-thin, I was surprised by how well they worked. Not only am I reducing my environmental impact, but they let my coochy breathe much better than plastic pads."

I'm a HUGE fan of cloth pads, and made the switch from disposables about 6 months ago. I've never looked back. I am a gay cis female and don't want children, and for years I had a lot of anguish surrounding my period. Why do I have to deal with it when I have no need for it? Why is it so uncomfortable? Why are menstrual product companies charging so much (+ taxes!) for completely necessary items?
Finding cloth pads and making the switch changed my outlook on my period. I feel in tune with my body more than ever, and actually enjoy the time now. I know it sounds crazy, but there's something almost ritualistic about it, and very empowering.
All that said, Party In My Pants make the most professional quality pads I have tried. They have so many cute prints, and a size for everyone (I LOVE their overnight and Queen pads!). They're backed in nylon, so there's no worry about them leaking. I suggest sizing up if you're anxious about anything - these pads are super thin and not bulky at all, so a size bigger than you might need only offers extra assurance, not bulk.
I also think cloth pads could be a great option for FTM trans folk out there looking for a way to lessen their dysphoria. A stash of pads in dark colors avoid staining and are easy to wash, and you won't need to buy menstrual products in person.
