I ALWAYS use these when mother nature calls. 😩😂 hehe (probably not the first one to make this joke) whether I am heavy or light it ALWAYS gets the job done. (Okay fine I'll stop!) These were the first brand I ever used and it just happened to be the only ones I use. Best part is sometimes I forget I am even wearing a pad because its not too thick but it catches everything. I just wish they weren't so pricey because they are part of womens monthly cost.
