These washable sanitary pads are super soft, slim and comfortable, they are absorbent and
reliable with a waterproof backing. They have wings with a popper fastening, and popper into your pants.

Save a fortune versus disposables and do your bit for the planet.

  • Soft and comfortable
  • Slim and discreet
  • Highly absorbent
  • Waterproof backing, won’t leak


  • Mini for light flow or as a pantyliner
  • Regular for normal flow
  • Maxi for heavy
  • Maxi plus for very heavy or maternity
  • Teen or petite for smaller size

The maxi pad is triple thickness; holds up to 70ml liquid. 40ml is equal to an entire ‘average’ periods of blood loss.


  • With soft layer facing upwards, place pad in your tight-fitting underwear (snug pants are really important!)
  • Fold the wings underneath
  • Fasten the poppers (you won’t feel the popper)
  • Change regularly when pad feels full (you will notice the wet on the top when the pad is full)


Rinse after use with cold water before you wash them. This will help to ensure they wash as best as
possible. Do not use fabric softener, as this reduces their effectiveness.

Do not tumble dry. They dry very quickly anyway.

Using powder rather than liquid can cause bobbling.

You can wash them up to 40 degrees.

The pads fold up and popper shut in a little parcel (see pics). Everything on the outside is waterproof. Any liquid is drawn into the centre of the pad. There are no danger of leaks from a used pad.

Use with our wet bag when out and about. This has two separate zipped compartments. One for wet and one for dry pads.

Your used pads will not smell! Disposables can smell because they are a breeding ground for bacteria. Reusable pads do not smell.

These reusable cloth pads do not feel wet when you wear them. Liquid is drawn into the inside of the pad and the pad itself will often feel dry to the touch.

Thinking of switching to reusable sanitary pads?

Three re-usable sanitary pads.
Slim and discreet – Soft and comfortable – Absorbent and reliable
Available in seven sizes

(Wet Bag sold separately)

These  Gold award-winning washable sanitary pads are super soft, slim and comfortable, they are absorbent and
reliable with a waterproof backing.

Save a fortune versus disposables and do your bit for the planet.

  • Soft and comfortable
  • Slim and discreet
  • Absorbent
  • Waterproof backing, won’t leak
  • 3 sanitary pads in each pack


  • Mini/Light for light flow or as a pantyliner (new longer length)
  • Regular for normal flow
  • Maxi for heavy, maternity or overnight
  • Maxi plus for extremely heavy, maternity and  heavy overnight (back in stock Mid October)
  • Teen Light  for light flow or as a smaller pantyliner (same as old ‘light’ pad)
  • Teen Regular for girls or petite women (normal flow)
  • Teen Maxi for girls or petite women (heavy flow)

The regular pads have two inner absorbent layers, the maxi pads are triple thickness; hold up to 70ml liquid. The maxi plus have 4 inner absorbent layers. You can expect each pad to last twice as long as it’s disposable equivalent. To put this amount in perspective a fully saturated overnight disposable pad will hold between 10 and 15ml.


  • With soft layer facing upwards, place pad in your tight fitting underwear
  • Fold the wings underneath to secure
  • Fasten poppers
  • Change regularly when pad feels full


We suggest rinsing your pads in cold after use before you wash them. This will help to ensure that they don’t stain and they wash as best as possible. Do not use fabric softener as this will reduce their effectiveness. You can machine wash up to 40 degrees or you can easily hand wash. You may choose to hand wash as you use your pads and then machine wash together at the end of your cycle. Air drying your pads is best, they cannot be tumble dried. You may use a heated airer or dry above a heat source. We like sock or underwear mini airers for drying pads.


These pads will not lose absorbency over time if cared for properly.

They will not move if worn with the correct (snug fitting) underwear. We recommend cotton pants with a normal sized gusset.

We recommend storing them folded up (they can be kept like this clean or used.)

Our wet bag with wet and dry compartments is a waterproof bag to store your pads in, when you are out and about with no danger or leaks.

You can build your pad collection over time, there is no need to feel you have to do it all at once.

These are great for girls and women who have SEN, especially Sensory Processing Disorder.

Have you seen our First Period Kit?

If using for bladder leaks you may like to spritz with lavender essential oil and water.

For period use these pads will not smell.

Top of pad 100% cotton flannel.  This provides you with a super soft and comfortable pad.

Inner wadding 100% polyester microfibre, because this is quick-drying and extremely absorbent.

Waterproof outer 100% polyester PUL.    Yes there is a little plastic in our pads. The popper and the PUL coating. This is because we wanted an effective product and without waterproofing they would not work.

Where are they made?

Our pads are ethically made in Turkey. Our factory has been making cloth pads for over 15 years and are leaders in this area.  We have a long relationship with our factory and have worked with them for 9 years.

How long will the pads last?

The pads will last between 300-500 washes when cared for correctly. Dependent upon how many pads in your collection and as to whether you use as a daily or for period use they can last up to 5 years.

I first bought a pack of regular and light to try these out as I’ve never used reusable pads before. They are so comfortable and have really good absorbency and I wish I’d changed to these sooner. I’ve now bought more. They are soft and comfortable and fit well. I have no worries about leaks at all. They wash well. Think this is an excellent product. I wasn’t sure about switching from disposable pads and I’m very glad I have because better for the environment but also I think better for me.


I have bought I think about 4 boxes of these brilliant reusable washable pads. I have even bought some as a gift for my sister! I have tried a few other makes of pads, but these mama designs pads are the only ones I would recommend and the only ones I use now. They are comfortable, make me feel safe and secure when wearing them as well as overnight when asleep. I used to have terrible trouble with pads slipping or not stopping leaks overnight, but never had a single problem with these mama designs pads. Everything that I hated about using throw away pads are a thing of the past now, no more plastic waste, or discomfort. These pads are absorbent, easy to wash and dry. Just brilliant! Thank you Mama Designs!

Give me confidence

Thought for a long time about buying these for my IBS problem. It only happens occasionally, usually when I'm out for a walk, but I never know when it will be. These pads are perfect to give me confidence, now I'm in my 70s, to get on with life. Just the right size, don't show through clothes, stay put all day if necessary. Thank you!

Why haven't I tried these before?!?

I tried these for the first time this month(even though I bought them ages ago!) and they are just THE BEST! They are soooo comfortable, extremely absorbant, THEY DON'T LEAK and are easy to wash. What more could you ask for? Plus the happiness they being that they are good for the environment is the icing on the cake.


These are so comfortable, I wish I had changed to the reusable pads ages ago. Easy to wash, good for the environment, if you are undecided try them you won't regret it.

Hi Linda, thank you so much for your feedback about our cloth sanitary pads. I am delighted you are such a fan! Thanks, Keira (Mama Designs founder)
