How you wear your pad with wings can make a world of difference when it comes to ultimate comfort and security. So sit back, relax and let’s make this the best period possible!
Where to Position an Aunt Flow Pad On Your Underwear
Central Placement for Maximum Coverage
To maximize coverage and prevent leaks, position your Aunt Flow pad centrally in your underwear. Ensure that the wider part of the pad covers the entire area where you expect the flow to be. This central placement not only enhances protection but also minimizes the chances of the pad shifting during movement.
Securing Wings for Extra Stability
If your pad comes with wings, use ‘em! Aunt Flow pads have wings designed to wrap around the two sides of your underwear, providing an extra layer of protection and preventing the pad from shifting. Smoothly fold the wings over the sides of your underwear and press them against the fabric for a secure fit.
Aligning with Your Body’s Contours
Modern pads are designed with contours that align with the natural shape of your body. Take advantage of this feature by ensuring the raised edges are facing upwards. This alignment not only enhances comfort but also helps prevent leaks by directing the flow toward the center of the pad.
Consider Your Underwear Style
The style of your underwear can impact how well the pad stays in place. For those who prefer thongs, look for pads specifically designed for thong use. If you’re wearing full-coverage underwear, opt for pads that offer maximum coverage. Tailoring your pad choice to your underwear style contributes to a more comfortable and secure experience.
For Aunt Flow pads specifically, cheeky or full-coverage underwear will be your best bet! This allows you to fold the wings over for secure placement and all-day comfort.
QUICK TIP: Ensure that your underwear is not wet before applying your pad. Whether you just got out of the shower or have some fresh blood on your underwear contributing to extra moisture, the pad may not stick as well.
Avoiding Creases and Bunching
Smooth out the pad to eliminate any creases or bunching. A flat, well-positioned pad ensures uniform absorption and minimizes the risk of leaks. Pay attention to the edges, making sure they adhere smoothly to the fabric of your underwear.
Checking and Adjusting Throughout the Day
Periods are dynamic, and your pad positioning may need adjustment throughout the day. Regularly check and, if needed, gently readjust the pad to maintain optimal coverage and comfort. This simple habit ensures that you stay protected, especially during busy and active periods.
Mastering the art of thoughtful pad positioning is a small but significant step towards a worry-free and empowered period experience.
