I am on week two of using pads and I am about to lose my frickin' mind. Actually, this rant is also going include the people who make the underwear that I am attaching said pads to.
First and foremost let me say that I haven't used pads on more than an occasional basis for 25 years and I am not any more impressed with them. Maybe I had to come from the era where they were attached to sting around my waist to think they've gotten any better?
Here is my problem:
I am a petite woman. I'm not quite 5 feet tall. I wear petite pants because my rise is shorter. So, I've got to believe that the exterior width of my vagina has to got to be petite, too. I have a hell of a time finding underwear that don't bunch in the middle (I have no clue what the technical term for that area is - but it is the area that usually has a cotton panel on it and spans the front to the back). I feel like the elastic is constantly pinching, rubbing and in-every-way-possible irritating the skin where the vagina and the leg meet.
The problem is then compounded because all these damn pads are too wide, too!
It is 100 degrees out. I am so sick of feeling like I am walking around with a mattress between my legs! Arrrgggh!
Any ideas, ladies?
Honestly, I usually just wear thongs because it is too friggin hard to find undies that fit. And yes, I do know that they have thong bads but I'm just not feeling good about that with the amount of flow I'm having.
