The absorbency is what is key to this product.
Not only do I use these myself, I have turned several women on to Infinity.
The absorbency alone is remarkable - imagine not having to change your pad every single hour anymore! Yes, it's true.
Now, I have read other reviews here that the product leaks - this has happened to me at night, so what do I do - I double up: over lap two pads over the middle, making it longer and that has solved the problem. Also on waking, as with ANY pad, be careful when you get up, because a gush is likely to happen and it will SEEM that the pad is not absorbing, but it is the sudden rush.
Additionally, I do wish the tabs/wings were absorbent, not just a thin fiber.
THat said, ti is still the best pad on the market.
