Heavy Cloth Menstrual Pad
This heavy cloth pad is perfect for moderate to heavy flows! The 100% cotton flannel fabric, as well as the cotton terry cloth in the pad core (the part that’s shaped like a peanut), are super absorbent, quick-drying, breathable, and breath-takingly soft. They also have a layer of PUL, a waterproof fabric, that covers the entire base of the pad. So, these offer a serious amount of coziness AND protection against leaks? What the heck could be better than that?
9.5 inches long
2.25 inches wide at the middle, not including wings
2.5 inches wide at both ends
& Each wing is 2 inches wide.
Rinse or soak with cold water ASAP to reduce staining. Machine wash cold, then air dry thoroughly.
Wash with gentle detergents that you won’t mind gettin’ up close and personal with. Avoid fabric softener, because it actually makes fabrics less absorbent! (Gasp!) Remember: COLD water does the best job of lifting blood stains!

Materials and Good-To-Knows:
These pads are made with cotton flannel, terry cloth, and polyurethane laminate (PUL) (a waterproof fabric)! The PUL lines the entire base of these heavy pads, so even the wings are leakproof! The only areas where the lining is punctured is the semicircle at one end of the pad, and the snaps, of course! If you tend to bleed more toward the back of your pad, put the end with the semicircle toward the front. If you typically bleed more toward the front of your pad, do the opposite!
To attach the pad to your underwear, lay the pad core-side up, fold the wings around the middle of your underwear, and secure it with it’s snaps.
Quick Comparison Info About Other Moody V Cloth Pads:
Liners have five layers of 100% Cotton Flannel. These are about 6.5 inches long. They don’t contain any terry cloth or PUL. They are great for a backup protection for a tampon or cup, for everyday use for discharge and spotting, and for super light days (like the very end of your period)! If you just want a little something to protect you from stains, or you like using liners on the daily, then these could be great for you!
Regular pads contain four layers of cotton flannel and one layer of cotton terry cloth in the core of the pad. They don’t have any PUL inside. These pads are about 8 inches long. Since they are super absorbent and quick-drying, they are awesome for light to moderate flows. Also, they may also be used as a backup for a tampon or cup if you typically experience some moderate leakage.
Heavy pads have four layers of cotton flannel, one layer of cotton terry cloth in the pad core, and a layer of PUL that covers the whole base of the pad. That includes the wings! They are about 9.5 inches long. Because they contain quick-drying cotton and leakproof PUL, these are rad for moderate to heavy flows. If you experience some irregularity in your flow and want that assurance of protection against leaks, then these may be a great fit for you too!
Overnight pads are made of four layers of cotton flannel, a layer of cotton terry cloth in the pad core, and a layer of PUL that extends throughout the whole base, including the wings!

Thanks to the absorbent, moisture-wicking cotton and leakproof PUL, these are great for heavy flows and overnight use!
