Products That Didn't Make the Cut

And why they didn't quite make it.

Made With a Material That's Not for Everyone

Made With a Material That's Not for Everyone

Whisper Fresh Ultra Slim had great ventilation and was the perfect size for taking on the go, but it was made with a vinyl material rather than cotton, which may not feel great after extended wear.

Not Absorbent Enough

Not Absorbent Enough

Laurier Slim Guard pads may have excelled in terms of thickness, but they didn't absorb as much liquid as the average lady requires. It also has a bit of a stiff texture, making it potentially uncomfortable after wearing it for a while.


Sofy Air Fit Slim (Happy Floral Scent) was comfortable enough that we didn't even feel like we were wearing a pad, but we were disappointed by how much the liquid spread out during our text; possible leakage could occur.

Needs More Ventilation

Needs More Ventilation

When we put Sofy Body Fit pads to the test, we were disappointed to find that it took quite a long time for liquid to actually absorb into the pad. That could mean an uncomfortable few seconds for you should a sudden leak occur. sisiFILLE Sanitary Pads also gave us the same impression.


While Naturamoon Menstrual Pads had a high absorption rate, we noticed that more water absorbed into the tissue than the pad, which led us to give it a lower grade and rank.

Didn't Meet Our Expectations All Around

Didn't Meet Our Expectations All Around

These are the pads that had something wrong with them in pretty much every category. Cepee's Gentle on Skin Pads felt heavy when liquid was absorbed into them, and touching them with a tissue or our hand left water behind - not very breathable. 


Cotton Lab's Organic Cotton Pads scored 1.0's in three of our four categories; it wasn't absorbent, breathable, or a compact size. While the cotton did make it feel comfortable (it's only saving grace), it also gave us the feeling that we were definitely wearing a pad.

How We Tested the Menstrual Pads

We put the 16 most popular daytime menstrual pads through four tests, each designed to gauge a different factor. One was to judge its absorbency, and two more were to gauge its ventilation and thickness. The final test was to see how it felt to the touch.

Test ① Absorbency

Test ① Absorbency

We'll state the obvious: you're going to want a super absorbent pad to get you through your busy day. To test its absorption power without actually testing it on ourselves, we applied 20cc of colored water onto the upper and center areas of a pad using an eyedropper. Then we graded it on a scale of 1.0 to 5.0.

Test ① Absorbency

During our testing process, we noticed that pads that have a totally flat surface tend to let liquid spread over the entire pad rather than keeping it concentrated in the center. Pads with a slightly raised center have more absorption space and prevent it from leaking out the sides. We'd highly recommend looking for a pad like this.

Test ② Thickness

Test ② Thickness

The next thing we graded the test pads on was their thickness. We wanted to measure how easy they would be to carry around and whether or not they felt bulky to wear (before opening the actual pad).

Test ② Thickness

Our tests showed us that pads made with 100 percent cotton or organic cotton tended to look and feel bulky; we could only fit two or three in our test pouch. If you want to stick to your organic habits, though, we'd suggest putting them in a larger pouch. 

Test ③ Ventilation

Test ③ Ventilation

When those heavy days come, you'll want a pad with good ventilation to prevent skin from getting irritated and also to keep it feeling fresh. After soaking the pads in our absorbency test liquid, we placed a tissue over the pad and checked to see how much liquid was absorbed by the tissue. A wetter tissue meant less ventilation.

Test ③ Ventilation

Results taught us that pads with a mesh design were extremely breathable. The tissue absorbed very little liquid from these pads or none at all. However, if the mesh was too fine, the tissue tended to stick to the napkin. Look for a pad with a good-size mesh pattern to stay fresh.

Test ④ How it Felt to the Touch

Test ④ How it Felt to the Touch

Menstrual pads are made with all kinds of materials from vinyl to cotton, and not all of these materials are cohesive to comfort. We used our own hands to touch the surface of a pad and judge how soft and gentle each pad surface was, then graded it on a scale of 1.0 to 5.0. 

Test ④ How it Felt to the Touch

As you may have guessed already, pads made with chemical fibers like vinyl didn't always feel so gentle on our skin. After long periods of wear, they may start to cause skin irritation. If comfort is your ultimate goal, we'd recommend using cotton pads.

How to Choose a Daytime Menstrual Pad - Buying Guide

Here are four big things to look out for when choosing your next Japanese daytime menstrual pads.

Choose a Daytime Pad That's Suited for Your Lifestyle

Menstrual pads come in two main types: with wings and without wings. These two constructions have different qualities that may be better suited for different lifestyles.

Pads With Wings Are Great for Active Days

Pads With Wings Are Great for Active Days

The wings of a pad help hold the product firmly in place on top of your underwear, making it hard to slip out of place. If you're going to do a lot of walking or you're just worried about side leakage, pads with wings are a good choice. 


Thick pads with wings can feel a bit bulky in the center, so if you're going to choose a winged pad, we'd recommend going with a thinner one.

Pads Without Wings Provide Ultimate Comfort

Pads Without Wings Provide Ultimate Comfort

Pads without wings, along with being cheaper, also tend to be more comfortable to wear. They're easy to apply and remove, so if you're someone that needs to change their pad often, pads without wings may be easier on your skin and your underwear.


Many people claim that it's easier for pads without wings to slip out of place, so we'd recommend using these towards the end of your period.

Match the Thickness of Your Pad With Your Flow

No one knows the rhythm of your period better than you do, so if you have a wide variation of flow in your cycle, consider purchasing either or both of these pad types.

Slim Type Pads are Portable and Best for Light Flow Days

Slim Type Pads are Portable and Best for Light Flow Days

If you don't need a full-on thick pad, why wear one? Slim-type pads are available in portable sizes that are great for days when your flow isn't so heavy. They're also less likely to show through clothes like tight skirts or pants. 

Thick Pads Will Be Your Lifesaver on Long and Heavy Days

Thick Pads Will Be Your Lifesaver on Long and Heavy Days

If you're in the midst of heavy flow, thick pads will offer you absorption and security. They can look a bit bulky, so they'd be better used with baggy or loose-fitting clothes. Also consider the kind of pouch or bag you'll be carrying them in, because they tend to take up a lot of space. They're also great for long days when you don't have many opportunities to change your pad.

Take Flow Level and Pad Length into Consideration

Take Flow Level and Pad Length into Consideration

Along with thickness level, different lengths of pad are better suited for different stages of your cycle. Pads that are longer than nine inches are best for heavy days; 7.8 inches to nine inches are great for regular days; and 6.7-inch pads and under are safe to use at the end of your period.


Shorter pads mean more comfort and longer pads can start to feel a bit noticeable, so also think about your clothing when considering a pad length.

If You're Worried about Odor, Choose a Scented Pad

If You're Worried about Odor, Choose a Scented Pad

Most pads come unscented, but you may be worried about your scent during your period (both for your sake and for others'). Recently, a greater variety of scented pads is becoming available, most often in floral and rose fragrances. Choose these pads if you want to keep yourself feeling and smelling fresh all day.

Looking for Other Menstrual Products? We've Got a Few Suggestions

Choosing the best pad is just one way you can make your life easier, but there are plenty other products to help you during your period. Here are a few suggestions to get you started.

Summary

We rounded up members from our editing department, purchased the 16 most popular Japanese daytime menstrual pads, and tested them all. We learned that the best of the best pads have a mesh pattern and are slightly raised in the center for maximum absorption. 


They're also easy to carry around and are soft to the touch. You know your body better than anyone, but we hope we've given you a good place to start on your search.
