Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Like many, I dread the day my period comes. Not because of the cramps or mood swings but because I have period leakage. Yup, you heard me right. My period leakage has become an annoying and embarrassing experience. I have a heavy flow and sometimes most pads don’t give me the coverage I need. My period leakage affects what I wear and even how I sleep. During the warmer months, I have to swear off white jeans because I fear that when I sit and stand, I’m going to have a stain on my jeans. When I sleep at night, sometimes I have to sleep on a towel just so I don’t stain my sheets. This has been happening to me for years. Usually, I just change my pad more frequently to help avoid leakage.
When it comes to pads, one size does not fit all. Not only do I need a pad to fit my heavy flow, I need a pad that’s going to fit my plus size body comfortably. There have been numerous times that I’ve fallen victim to period leaks. It’s a pain. Especially, when it affects what I want to wear. You guys know how much I love my clothes, so I don’t need my period holding me back from wearing something as simple as white jeans. I know I’m not the only one who experiences period leakage. An Always study found that 60% of women are wearing the wrong size pad. 80% of girls and women experience period leaks because of it.
Recently, I found out about an entire new system from Always. For those of us who experience period leaks. Always launched Always My Fit, a sizing system designed to help women find the right size pad based on their panty size and flow. Always is the only brand to offer this kind of system.They sent me their new Always My Fit pads to try out and for me, the sizing is just right. Plus, the leakage protection lasts for hours. When I heard about their new fit and sizing system, I got excited because it meant that I can now wear my white jeans without fear.
So, let me breakdown the sizing system for you:
-The Always My Fit pads are numerically sized from 1-5. In addition, there is a sizing chart on all the packages which details which one you should use based on your flow.
-Look for the Always My Fit sizing chart on the top of every Always pack to find your right day and night fit.
-Sizes 1-2 are for light to medium flows. They also offer up to 8 hours of leakguard protection. Sizes 3-5 are for moderate to heavy flows and offer up to 10 hours of leakguard protection.
-Sizes 4-5 have 75% larger back for protection. I consider those two size pads better for plus size women.
-All sizes are color coded. Yellow-1, Green-2, Blue-3, Orange-4, Purple-5.
Out of all 5 sizes, I prefer to use size 4 and 5. I use 4 during the day. For night, I sleep in size 5. It’s long without feeling like I’m wearing a diaper and its wide enough in the back to block any leakage onto my sheets. The new Always My Fit system has me covered front to back.Now I can go out and enjoy my day and look cute in my white jeans when I want to wear them, especially during my period. I can also, sleep comfortably at night without worrying about leakage. Always My Fit feels light weight and comfy and allows me to move around with ease.
I wanted to share my personal story with you because things like period leakage can be a little intimidating to talk about. I promise, many girls and women go through it. Rarely, do we ever think that period leakage happens because we are wearing the wrong size pads. That’s why its so good that Always is thinking about us. Especially us plus size girls and women. Our bodies are shaped differently, and we deserve to have better pads just like we deserve to have stylish clothes.
Thanks to Always My Fit in size 4 I can wear my white jeans with no worries.So, if you experience period leakage and want to try the Always My Fit system, I suggest taking the sizing quiz at Always
