When it comes to pads, one size definitely doesn’t fit all. Did you know that 60% of women wear the wrong size pad and 80% of women experience leaks every month. I was shocked by these statistics! However I learned at my recent event with Always that the good news is 100% of women can change that number.
I have to admit until recently, I had never used a pad. I started my period when I was a professional ballerina already, so tampons have always been my closest ally. However after learning more about the new technology, comfort and convenience of Always pads, I decided that it was time for this girl to give them a try. So where to begin? This May, Always launched Always My Fit, designed to help women find the right size pad based on their panty size and flow. When you wear the right size pad, you experience better coverage and avoid leaks.
It is so interesting to look back when Always first introduced pads in 1983 and there were only two pad sizes available at the store. That year, the average woman was a size 8. In 2016 the average woman was a size 16 and she had more options based on flow – rather than her size. Ladies, the times are finally changing! You can learn your perfect size with me (based on panty size and flow) by reviewing the top of the Always packaging and/or taking an easy online quiz. If we take an extra few seconds in the Feminine Care aisle or online, leaks are manageable!
So I took the quiz!

So what did you get?! Always is the only brand to offer this system. Now that Always pads are numerically sized 1 through 5 you can find your best coverage for both day and night coverage. The better a pad fits, the better it protects. Always scientists have spent years researching why pads leak and wearing the wrong size pad is one of the leading causes.
I discovered I’m a Daytime Size 2 and a Nighttime Size 4. I also found that my favorite pad is the Always® Infinity™. Made with an ultra-light FlexFoam™ material, this form-fitting, revolutionary pad absorbs 10X its weight™ and molds to your body shape, so you barely feel it. At first I was worried I would be uncomfortable wearing my first pad as a woman on the other side of 30, but I found it super comfortable! And seriously, this pad absorbs10X its weight. Now this is a statistic I can get behind.
So next time you are wandering down the feminine aisle, look for the Always My Fit sizing chart on the top of every Always pack to find your right day and night fit.
