I have been eyeing the Pink Lemonade Shop for a while now. She sells cloth pads that are so soft and amazing looking and I knew I had to have my hands on some. I haven't received any new cloth pads in about 18 months so I really wanted to try some new ones.
Hers are all topped with minky and are so soft!
I received the Purple Floral liner (6"), a Black and White Damask 9" and then a Pink Owls 10" pads.
All 3 stacked on top to show the size difference.
The backs are fleece.
This is the largest owls and the smallest purple floral
These pads are constructed with Minky on the top, Bamboo Fleece in the middle as the absorbent layer and then Windpro Fleece on the back which is not just water resistant, it is also grippy so the pad won't slide around in your underwear.
The pads are super soft and comfortable right against your most sensitive parts. They are pretty absorbent, don't leak and best of all they don't stain.
I usually wash my pads at the end of my cycle (or sometimes I'll wash them twice), I wash them in hot water and some of mine get stains, but these ones have been wonderful against staining. I hear that's a quality of minky though.
Even though the minky is silky it still absorbs. I thought that minky would let everything pool on top and then leak off, but I was wrong. It absorbs just as well as any other material. That part surprised me, but then again they wouldn't be selling minky pads if they pooled!!
These pads are made very well, the stitching is all fairly straight, the snaps are on well and they are just perfect.
I use the 6" for my first day and last day, my very light days. The 9" one I use at all times during my cycle and the 10" I use for overnights or on really heavy days.
I do use the 9" and 10" pads as backup for my reusable cup that I use, but the 6" I use on it's own on my light days.
All the pads do what they're supposed too and I haven't had any issues with them at all.
Price: 10" are $10.25, 9" are $9.25 and the 6" are $5.25
She also has 7.5", 8", 11" and post partum pads as well. And she offers sets.
Overall: ***** Great company, decent prices too!
