Reliable and comfortable

Advantagesaffordable and reliable

Disadvantagesnone so far

"...the ideal brand which is Always Ultra with wings. Always come in different sizes, regular, super and nightime. A packet will cost you anything from 1.25 to 1.75 depending on where you shop, I always wait untill they are on offer from Safeways or the Co-op at 99p then stock up, this way it works out cheaper. There are different colours to the packets too, regular are green, super are purpley and ultra are blue. There is a little dove in the right ..." Read review

Always and forever

AdvantagesAs reliable as your best friend

DisadvantagesHaving to pay for 'feminine hygiene' at all!

"...some things I think about Always that nobody else has mentioned. As we all know, these sanitary towels come in packs of 12 and 24 and cost anything between £1.15 for 12 from Asda to £2.50 for 24 from Boots. They're often on special offer so stock up when you can. I don't use tampons - I never have and the only time I tried one, I fainted because I got too freaked out, being so squeamish, so I've never bothered since. I've been using Always ..." Read review

Always the Best

AdvantagesKeep you well protected

DisadvantagesBoring design

"...stay in place, which is always handy. Price These usually retail anywhere from £1.50-2.00, so I usually pick them up on offer. Mainly because I'm a cheapskate and I can think of much better things to spend my money on than menstrual products. ..." Read review

No Leakages

AdvantagesVery thin, No leakages so far

Disadvantagesexpensive

"Always Night Time are an absolute god send! I have suffered from heavy periods ever since i started and that time of the month always used to be extremely depressing for me. After trying quilted ones, winged ones and rub your thighs thick ones i would still suffer from leakages and life was really becoming unbearable. That was when mom came home with the ultimate solution... ALWAYS NIGHT TIMES! Priced at about £2.18 for 10 you might be forgiven ..." Read review

Ultra Absorbent

AdvantagesFantastic for absorbency and really comfortable too

Disadvantagesn/a

"...discover another alternative. Then Always Ultra Plus (as it was then known) came along claiming that they were the best towels that you could buy plus a lot thinner and more comfortable than any other too. Being totally sick of the really thick, uncomfortable, and all in all never very good, Dr Whites Style towel I decided to give them a go. I am extremely glad that I did. The Always Ultra Long Plus towel (as it is now known) is very thin but it ..." Read review

Barbed wire in yer knicks

AdvantagesAsk her

DisadvantagesAsk her

"...to them you evil fiend. You always know as the wolf hair starts to sprout on the palms of their hands that you're going to be off down to the local ASDA, Tesco or Sainsburys to stock up on our regular supplies. Mrs D swears .... sorry, that should be Mrs D swears by Always Ultra towels, the ones in the little square, green pack made by those old reliables Procter & Gamble. At least they're a damn sight more discreetly packed than ever they used ..." Read review

Nothing comes close

AdvantagesDryer, comfortable, no huge wedge

DisadvantagesCan get stuck in places

"...and leaks at the sides. Always ultra with wings certainly beats that uncomfortable wedge, that I used to have and instead provides comfort and dryness, thanks to the top weave cover it has, also the wings stop it moving and gives you a bit more protection at the sides. The only thing I quibble at is sometimes it can get attached to different places and removing it can be painful, but I would say it could work as a good hair remover. Always are ..." Read review

Always with wings

AdvantagesThin, compact, excellent coverage

DisadvantagesPrice

"...however the winner everytime is Always Ultra with wings. They are ultra-thin, not bulky like many pads. Also the wings prevent any spillage over the sides. The wings on Always are much better than any other pad I've seen. Great for nighttime use, and they are so thin that they are even great for day. They are pricier than some, but the better quality makes it worthwhile for me. But then, I don't think women should even have to pay for these things, ..." Read review

Menopause problems

AdvantagesAlways Ultra provide good protection for heavy periods

DisadvantagesI wish they were cheaper!

"...with the heavy periods. The Always Ultra towel has proved to be the most effective product. I have also recently started using Always Ultra Long Plus at night, and they provide me with an extra feeling of security. Always have a range of towels so I keep a supply of the different types to use at different times of my period. I just wish that sanitary products weren't so expensive! ..." Read review

Worth every penny

AdvantagesComfortable and dont move

DisadvantagesWe have to pay for them

"...more, I have been using Always with Wings for about a year now and they are without question the most comfortable towels on the market. They come in a neat little packet so that if they do try to escape from my bag nobody bats an eyelid, the handy wings are easy to apply and keep the pad in place for as long as you need it. I cant imagine anything being as good as Always with wings, until the government give us them for free of course. ..." Read review

One of the best

AdvantagesDoes everything you could ask for!

DisadvantagesOnly that we actually have periods.

"...with clear wigs, i tried Always and have used it ever since! It comes in a green wrapper with little facts dotted across it, a nice touch really. They are extremely thin, and this size isn't too long, but provides excellent protection, the wings hold the shape of the pad for however long you where it, they are very sticky and stay on very well. The are small enough to hide in a sleeve or something, and could fit in small bags. The topsheet that ..." Read review

Is that a wing I feel stuck to my leg

Advantagesdiscreet, easy to use

Disadvantages-

"...a big issue the better, Always with wings has managed to achieve that. Like most women I have a whole hoard of sanitary products lined up at the ready for when mother nature strikes. You normally know the signs of when she's gonna hit you but you don't know if this month she's going to alternate the flow-pattern so that you know which of your goodies to get ready first. So it's... panty liners for light, off-days and to close, tampons for when ..." Read review

comfort to the max

Advantagescomfy

Disadvantagesnone

"...time than write opinions about Always ultra with WINGS I figured I might as well make a boring and embarrasing subject more enjoyable and easy to talk about. So here we go... So yeah periods are a pain and all women hate em and all the aches and pains that come along with it. I think that most women use tampons in general but I know there are people like me out there that hate them and would much prefer to use towels. They are very comfortable ..." Read review

Always Ultra (greatness)

AdvantagesSlim, comfortable and you hardly know you're wearing one!

DisadvantagesNone!

"...every brand available but had always avoided 'Always' as that was the brand my mat ehad given me that first day. I have found that most towels available made me feel very uncomfortable. So, last month I bought Always Ultra (only because thats all the local shop stocked) and this was to prepare for my first period in 6 months asI had continued taking the pill solid for that time. WOW!!! Did I miss something? I went to the ladies and thought my periods ..." Read review

Simply the best Oh oh, I sound like Tina Turner

AdvantagesKeep there shape very well, nice and sticky too.

DisadvantagesMore expensive than shop own brands.

"...a full list of the always range. This is handy as it gives you the length and absorbancy of each kind of pad, so you can plan what you want to buy before you go shopping, and don't have to spend ages humming and hawing in the shop.(Especially good if you are young and have just started your periods as I can remmber feeling very self concious standing in the aisle trying to decide what to try.) They can be bought in tesco's, Asda, Safeway(Actually ..." Read review
