I originally titled this post “Lunapads Thong Pantyliner Product Review”. Just before I hit ‘post’ I decided I needed to change the title. It sounded WAY BORING. As many of you might know me I am a bit ‘animated’ so I thought the “Adventures in Thong Wearing” would get a better pick-up!
I never liked pads for my period. No offense to those of you that do but I just never liked them. This post might a little ‘TMI’ (too much information) so if you are uncomfortable with me talking about my ‘lady bits’ or ‘girly parts’ I completely understand if you want to stop reading now.
During the work day I am very casual. Jeans and a comfy fleece pull-over; maybe a t-shirt with holes in it! (Now when I attend a show I put my professional clothes on!) I don’t spend much on clothes and like to find deals on eBay, goodwill, or consignment shops. One thing I do splurge on is my under-garments and coffee. Hold on there Kelly…(you might be saying) I really don’t need to know what is under your clothing. Well… to give you my complete review I need too-lol!
I. WEAR. THONGS. Gasp. Oooh. The word is out- KELLY.WELS.WEARS.THONGS.(Do you?) Those of you who don’t wear thongs might think now why would anyone in their right mind want a piece a cloth wedged up in their butt? I have one word…’liberating’. I choose the word ‘liberating’ as I am SO comfortable and love not having panty-lines. A few years ago I discovered the ultimate in thong underwear from a USA made company named Hanky Panky. I know the name sounds a bit risque but they are truly the best fitting thongs ever. (Side note: For Christmas last year I had one of my dearest friends, who owns a cloth diaper company, make me a pair of thongs. Yes, when I love a product I do tell all-lol!)
I have been in the cloth diaper industry for almost 12 years…and this is a shocker…used disposable tampons. Yes, I was a die-hard Tampax woman from way back and even though I didn’t use pads I did use pantyliners; the Always Thong Pantyliners. So this supposedly eco-friendly green Mom was ‘hiding in the cloth diaper closet(or some sort of closet-lol)’ and used DISPOSABLE Mama products. OMG!
When I owned the cloth diaper store we did carry some menstrual cups and we all laughed when they came in the store teasing each other “Who wants to be a Diva”? No one (at least to my knowledge) took on the challenge.
Move forward to 2012 and I discovered the Lunette Menstrual Cup from one of my KellyWels.com Cloth Diaper Ambassadors, Stacy. She raved about the product and I had her write a review and it posted on the blog. I still wasn’t convinced to switch. An opportunity came around to distribute the product through my new distribution company. I finally switched to the Lunette cup (I will write my review on the Lunette later) but was still using the disposable thong pantyliners.
I then added the Lunapads Cloth Menstrual Pads to the distribution product line but still didn’t try them. I was never a pad girl- and why would I start now? Well, not so long ago I ran out of those disposable pantyliners. I was at my shop and still had to pick up my kids at school and didn’t want to go to the store afterwards. I grabbed 5 of the Lunapads Thong Pantyliners from the back storage room and decided to give it a shot.
I “tried them on” and it was nothing short of true amazement.
The fit inside the Hanky Panky Thongs was unmatched. Trim fitting, SO TRIM. (see pics of my…ummm..clean underwear with a clean Lunapads Thong Pantyliner) The absorbency was better than their disposable counter-parts.
Now Kelly Wels doesn’t have to hide anymore and you know way too much about what is under my clothing-LOL! …but now you know of three fabulous products (Lunapads, Lunette, & Hanky Panky) that I adore and what a difference it can make with being more comfortable, saving money, and being green! Cheers to ‘liberating our lady parts’ ![p.s. I can’t take credit for the phrase ‘liberating our lady parts’- the credit goes to Julie, another one of my fabulous KellyWels.com Cloth Diaper Ambassadors.] Disclosure: I did not receive product samples from Lunapads or Hanky Panky. This review is solely written on my personal use with these products.
