These are the most comfortable (least UNcomfortable?!) pads I've ever tried, and I think I've tried all of them... BUT, they're way too short and a little too narrow, especially in the front. The core is off-center from the edging, which makes it difficult to get them on properly, and there is too much of the edging, causing a "ruffle" effect, especially in the back, which can be extremely irritating and painful. You're onto something great here, but you need to go a few more steps to make it excellent. I really appreciate that they're very soft and do not chafe my inner thighs. Please, please get the shape and length right and fix the edging issues. The absorbency is terrific, you honestly can forget you're wearing one (if the edge would stop poking you in the butt you could anyway) I've counted on the Always brand for many, many years - come through for us and fix this design!
