FINDING MY FIT WITH ALWAYS

FINDING MY FIT WITH ALWAYS

Hello everyone! How’s your week going so far?

Mine has been good! If you follow me on Insta you know by now that I’m on vacation so yes, things are good! I really needed this. I’m visiting Holland and Germany until July 4th with my BF and his fam. It’s been a great trip so far and everything is so new to me. I’ve never been to any of the cities we’ve visited and I have almost forgotten how special and inspiring it is to open your eyes and soul to new destinations. (Note to self: Need to travel more often. I just need to make it happen)

Speaking of new and let me just warn you that this subject is exclusively for my ladies out there! Although, my dear male readers, maybe you should read this post to get a glimpse of what we go through every month.. Just saying…

Anyway, there’s a new way of making our periods better and I wanted to talk about it. I’m teaming up with Always to share my experience using their new sizing system designed to help women find the right size pad based on their panty size and flow for better coverage to avoid leaks. It’s called ‘Always My Fit’. It’s been a life saver these past few days, since I’m on my period.

Ok, so let’s talk about what’s making me so happy and also boosts my confidence enough to wear white any day of the month!

Lets just be real, we’ve all been there. Throwing away underwear every month (sometimes even perfectly new ones), sleeping over a towel, checking your pants every hour in the mirror, and just that uncomfortable feeling and obsession with stains that we all develop when our monthly visit arrives. Let me just tell you, this is especially stressful when you’re in a new relationship, and now that we are traveling together, even more!

Did you know that 60% of women are using the wrong size pad? And that 80% of us experience leaks every single month? Such a high number! But now my babes, I have good news for you. You won’t be throwing away any more undies and you can stop over stressing during those days of the month.

So, here’s how it works. Always has available five different pad sizes that come in five different colored wrappers, making it easier for you to remember which to get.

Size 1 – Yellow

Size 2 – Green

Size 3 – Blue

Size 4 – Orange

Size 5 – Purple

The smaller the number, the smaller the pad. Numbers 1,2,3 are for the day, and 4 & 5 for the night. You can also check it out here.

But it’s not only about the flow. It’s about your panty size as well. So, every package comes with this little chart on the side and it’s super easy to figure out which pad is right for you, for day and night time as well.

In my case it varies depending on which day of my period I’m on, and I usually struggle with night time the most, because the majority of my pj’s and bed sheets are super light colored, so there’s no room for error if you know what I’m trying to say lol. Also, it freaks me out to stain hotel sheets! But I’ve been sleeping like a baby and I’ve had zero concerns when I wake up. I don’t have to run to the bathroom early in the morning to check if everything’s ok. 🙂

How about you my loves? Have you tried this sizing chart and Always products yet? Figure out your size and start feeling happy and relaxed during those days of the month. God knows we go through enough already. There are so many things we have in common, but leaks should definitely not be one of them!

I’m checking out from here for the next couple of weeks, but be sure to follow me on Instagram since I’m trying not to be super MIA from there, plus I want to share with you all the cool places I’m visiting! This is how happy I am right now and it’s all because I have found my true fit with Always!

Sending much love your way and enjoy your weekend! We’ll catch up as soon as I get back.

XO,

    I loved these photos! You look amazing. I’m not a huge fan of Always, they are a bit too plastic for me. I prefer ones that are made from cotton!

    Travel is a part of my lifestyle, when I hear that people never left their house. I am in shock! People who travels so much, they are open minded. As for women’s day, I have been using Always since an young age, because one time I was embarrassed cuz other one couldn’t protect me, since then I use only Always.

    This is super cool they have a sizing system to help with the flow and the panty size. I never actually thought of that, I just reach for the generic “Regular” or “Night” haha. My periods were (before my pregnancy) typically very heavy, so regardless of what I used I had to change every 2 to 3 hours. Even then, sometimes I had leaks. And I actually believe you that I might’ve had the wrong pad size. So I’m totally going to try Always and their sizing chart when I have period again post-baby, it’ll be so helpful!

    First off, I hope you are having fun in Europe!
    This post is so insightful! I always use Always, but never noticed the numbers until recently. My boyfriend jokingly asked me what my number was, after seeing an Always commercial. I didn’t know what he was talking about until the next time I went to Target! lol. Such a good idea! Now no more being obsessed when wearing white!

    I’m really impressed about how you approached this sensitive subject that all us women have to deal with but isn’t spoken about often.
    I think the different color options and sizes and chart makes the whole process a lot easier we’ve all been there and it sucks.
    Do you know if they stock these in Australia? I don’t think I’ve seen them in stores.

    I love your outfit and thank you for the information. I never thought that different sizes of pads exist (usually I use tampons). But it seems logic and I am impressed that 60% of women use the wrong sized pads.
    It is so nice that Always share this information with women through bloggers!

    Always was my favorite brand as a teen. I have to confess that once I started with tampons I never looked back to pads. Their new system is so clever – so innovative! I can’t wait to hear more about your trip to Holland and Germany! Hope you’re having fun!

    Hey babe! Hope you’re enjoying a wonderful trip! This post is fabulous, love the way you share this product, an essential for women. Every month “always” is my best friend, haha! They are simply the best. I love ultra thin pads for regular flow, they feel comfortable and make me feel confident during those days.

    Thanks for sharing this post, I found it very helpful!

    Girl! I love that you took the time to write about this and opening up about it! It’s seriously the worst every month for me! I had no idea they had come up with this system which is seriously brilliant! Night time is always the struggle for me and I had NO idea that there were different sizes of pads. Thanks so much for sharing this!

    You did such an amazing job with this blog post. I’m actually so impressed I don’t have any other words.

    I did not even notice the chart on the packages and I’ve been using Always since… forever.

    Again, great work!

    Best,

    Oh that’s great, that you’ve been visiting Germany. I hope, you liked it. Where have you been already? I would love to meet you one day if you had a chance to visit Berlin at some point.
    And I agree, it’s so important to stay confident during these days, especially when white is your favourite colour, haha 🙂 Thanks for sharing such a great article with us.

    Story of my life because mine is so IRREGULAR. Some months its heavy and some months its non existent so I always have to be vigilant no matter what! How useful that they’ve got a numbering system to help though because I know I’ve used the wrong size pads before and woken up with less than ideal surprises!

    PS. Happy travels through Germany and Holland!

    I love Always 🙂 Been using them since high school times. I love their night time ones, always feel safe and secure with their night time ones, so I don’t wake up to any big surprises. Thank you so sharing such a sweet post with all the female audience.

    So cool that you are talking about this subject! Not many would dare to do so even though it is perfectly natural!
    I had no idea that there was a sizing system at all! What a perfect way to find the right fit!

    Oh this is so cool! Not only is it color coded for the flow, but also tells you which undies to wear them with! Ingenious! I sometimes end up wearing two pads especially overnight and on heavy days so this is really helpful. I will have to get several different boxes for next month and I am excited to try! Thanks! xoxo, Christine

    That’s so cool, I didn’t realize the colors corresponded with the numbers. I usually use the yellow for all days, lol. Now I know better! Thanks for the informative post. Gotta love that lady time of the month!

    This is such a taboo subject so I’m so happy you’re speaking up about it! It’s true that when it’s that time of the month, white is definitely not a color I think of wearing! Always has always been my favourite pad brand!

    Great one! I totally struggle with the night time flow as well and I sleep on a towel on the heavy flow days because you just never know when you will wake up and “surprise”. I already use Always but I think the new sizing system would def help with getting the right fit.
