Which pads are the best for heavy flow?

For those experiencing heavy flow, finding a pad that offers both comfort and reliable protection is crucial. At Moody V, we’ve crafted our overnight pads with these needs in mind. They’re equipped with a waterproof polyurethane laminate (PUL) lining that covers the entire base, ensuring no leaks during heavy flow days and nights. Unlike some other brands that might compromise on comfort to achieve absorbency, we’ve maintained an emphasis on using soft, breathable materials like cotton flannel and cotton terry cloth. The result is a pad that’s not only effective at managing heavy flow but also incredibly comfortable to wear. It’s like having the best of both worlds – reliable protection without the feel of wearing something bulky or plastic.

Are cloth pads good for heavy flow?

Absolutely! Cloth pads can be an excellent choice for managing heavy flows, especially when designed with absorbency and comfort in mind. Our heavy absorbency pads at Moody V are a testament to this, incorporating materials and designs that cater specifically to heavy flow needs. The key is in the construction – with layers of absorbent cotton and a waterproof PUL lining, these pads provide the protection needed without compromising on comfort. Plus, they’re an eco-friendly alternative to disposable products, reducing landfill waste. Many users find they prefer the feel of cloth against their skin and appreciate the decreased environmental impact. It’s a win-win for both your body and the planet.

Which pad is best for high flow?

When it comes to high flow, the best pad is one that combines high absorbency with comfort and reliability. Our overnight pads are specifically designed for this purpose. They feature extended coverage and a waterproof lining to handle heavy flows effectively, ensuring that you can get a good night’s sleep without worrying about leaks. What sets these pads apart is not just their functionality but also their comfort and sustainability. By choosing Moody V’s overnight pads, you’re opting for a product that won’t just meet your high-flow needs but will also align with eco-friendly values. It’s about providing peace of mind, knowing you’re supported in every way possible during your period.

What is the disadvantage of cloth menstrual pads?

While cloth menstrual pads offer numerous benefits, including sustainability, comfort, and cost savings over time, they also come with challenges. One common concern is maintenance. Cloth pads require a cleaning process which may not be as straightforward as simply disposing of a used product. After use, they need to be rinsed, sometimes pre-soaked, and laundered. This can be a deterrent for those with busy lifestyles or limited access to laundry facilities. However, many find that with a bit of planning, managing cloth pads becomes a simple addition to their routine. It’s about weighing the initial convenience of disposables against the long-term benefits of cloth. And remember, every small step towards sustainable living makes a difference, even if it requires a bit more effort at first.

How do accessories enhance the experience of using cloth pads?

Accessories can significantly enhance the usability and convenience of cloth pads. For instance, our Pad Bags offer a discreet way to store and transport used or clean pads, making it easier to manage your menstrual care on the go. Snap Extenders are another handy addition, allowing for a better fit of the pads, which can increase comfort and protection, particularly on high-flow days. These accessories are designed to make the transition to reusable menstrual products as seamless as possible, addressing common concerns about storage and adaptability. They’re part of our commitment to not just sell a product but to provide a comprehensive solution that supports your shift to a more sustainable menstrual routine. It’s about making sure that every aspect of using cloth pads is thought through, ensuring a positive experience every step of the way.


Moody Reviews

These pads feel *heavenly* to wear. Soft, barely noticeable but not too lightweight, and they stay in place all day!!! I love them, I can’t wait to get my next paycheck so I can order more. :) these were my first experience with the switch to reusables and I’m very impressed. If anyone else is on the edge of starting this route, GO FOR IT. Especially if you’ve ever suffered from itchiness from those plastic pad materials..this is so much better.


It's my first time buying reusable pads and I'm really happy with this pair. The print and design sold me, but the comfort and reliability have exceeded my expectations. They work for daytime and overnight use with no problems compared to disposable pads. Wish I bought these sooner. They're a total game changer for periods.


Beautiful pattern, expertly stitched, and lovely seller. Beyond happy. Very fast shipping too! Thank you so much!!! ❤️


High-quality, low maintenance reusable pads! Really nice, and they do stain but that can’t really be helped aside from doing a quick handwash before tossing it in the machine. Will definitely be purchasing more in the future!


These are the best!! They are not bulky and the fabric is so comfortable. I have tried shapes and patterns from several of the best selling shops and these are my favorite.


I like that they have metal snaps! The ones I have with plastic snaps do not last as long. I think these will hold up for a few years. Thank you!

Confusion Checkpoint

I know right!? Ok, so cloth menstrual pads are a washable, reusable alternative to disposable pads. Pretty sweet, right?

  • The regular absorbency pads are good for light to moderate flows. They are 100% cotton, with a layer of terry cloth (towel material) inside for absorbency. Cotton is a moisture wicking and breathable fabric, which allows menstrual fluid to dry rapidly, keeping you comfy and dry. This also means that these cloth pads can absorb a surprising amount of fluid!
  • The heavy absorbency pads are perfect for moderate to heavy flows. Heavy pads are longer than regular pads. These pads are primarily cotton, with cotton flannel and terry cloth for absorbency and breathability. Additionally, they have a layer of polyurethane laminate (PUL) inside. This is a waterproof, laminated fabric that protects you from leakage. In the heavy pads, the PUL lining is in the pad core (the part that’s shaped like a peanut)!
  • The overnight cloth pads are great for heavy flows, and for overnight use. Overnight pads are longer than heavy pads, and flare out at each end. These pads are made of cotton flannel, cotton terry cloth, and PUL lining. In the overnights, the PUL lining extends throughout the entire base of the pad, so even the wings are leakproof!

Cloth liners are lovely for really light days, and as a backup for a tampon or menstrual cup. They are made of five layers of cotton. They are soft, barely noticeable, and peace of mind for that bit of protection.

Moody V regular absorbency pads and cloth liners are made with 100% cotton, which makes your down-there oh-so happy. Cotton is a breathable, moisture wicking fabric that creates a difficult environment for yucky bacteria like yeast to grow. 

Disposable pads are mostly synthetic, which is fully not nice to your body. They’re made out of bleached wood pulp (what the?) and non-biodegradable materials.

Moody V’s heavy cloth pads and overnight cloth pads are also primarily cotton. They have a polyurethane lining inside, which keeps moisture from leaking through. This lining is non-biodegradable (I know, it sucks). But remember, you’re not just gonna throw it away, you’ll probably use it like, 100 times.

The regular absorbency pads are made with cotton flannel and cotton terry cloth (like a towel material). Liners are just cotton flannel. Ugh! So simple! Love that!

The heavy cloth menstrual pads and overnight cloth pads are made with cotton flannel, cotton terry cloth, and polyurethane laminate. Ugh! Slightly less simple but still wow amazing and great! Love that!

Look at the “Wh-. . . What? Who? Where? What?” question at the top of this FAQ page to learn out each variety of pads work!

Method 1: Rinse with cold water ASAP to reduce staining. Machine wash cold, then air dry thoroughly to maintain a nice shape.

Method 2: Machine wash cold, tumble dry.*

*Method 2 gets your pad clean and ready to use again real quick, but may result in light staining and scrunching-up in the dryer. (Stains fade over time and you can stretch the pad gently with your hands to un-scrunch it.)

Some folks like to keep a container of cool water in their bathroom so they can soak their pads until they’re ready to wash them. This helps remove stains without using chemicals or potentially fabric-damaging products.

It’s recommended to avoid using fabric softener, as it makes fabric less absorbent.

Another good rule of thumb is not to use anything on your pads you wouldn’t wash your underwear with. Your pads are gonna be up close and personal with a sensitive area, so avoid harsh or irritating chemicals when washing them.

Cloth pads contain several layers of fabric, which means it might need extra time drying. Make sure they’re super dry out of the dryer or dry them in the sun to prevent mildew. Do be aware that sun-drying can result in fabric discoloration.
