You’ve got game! Don’t let your period get in the way. Playtex® Sport® Ultra-Thin Pads with Wings are designed with an anti-leak absorbent core that pulls fluid quickly into the pad and locks it inside. PlayOn!
When I heard that Playtex had recently released pads that were JUST like my all-time favorite Stayfree pads, I just had to try them!
The first thing I noticed when I opened the box was that there was… another one! The pads were packaged in more packaging – a sealed bag… wait so does this mean this pad is packaged 3 times?! (the box–>plastic bag–>individually wrapped). That’s a lot for such a small product!
Here’s another way to look at it: Now you can choose to store your pads in the bag or the box :) And it is much more convenient to throw a bag of pads in the my purse than a cardboard box.
So does this pad match up to the Stayfree pad?
YES! It does! If you’re a fan of the Stayfree pad, you will really like the Playtex pads.
They both have cotton soft like covers with quick absorption, comfortable dry wear, and are super thin – perfect for sport wear.
It makes me question if they are made by the same manufacturer and then just packaged differently by the companies. The only difference I can point out is that the Playtex ones come in more typical sizing whereas the Stayfree ones come in a wider variety of sizes from mini size to overnight pads with a wider bum.
There are also creases in the pad to help it flex with your body’s natural curves and I found that this really helped with preventing leaks. It didn’t create folds or pockets that caused leaks – something that I experience with other pads.
Regular Playtex Sport pads measure 23.5cm by 10.3 – 8.5cm and are 0.1cm thin.
