I've only got one Vaj pad, but I do love it. I wear it a lot. I recommend them!

These are BY FAR my absolute FAVORITE pads. There are actually only a couple sellers that I buy from, and this is one of them. The pad is super thin, has a unique and comfortable contoured shaped and washes/wears well. The stitching is also wonderfully done, very professional. I about die when I see the fabric selection, i think it's the biggest I've seen. I love these pads and would recommend them to anyone and everyone.

As far as use and absorbency, I can wear a regular on my heavy days and have never had any leaks. I once slept with a mini pad and when I woke up had still not had any accidents, I was impressed. I've used the mini's, regulars, overnights and circle pads and adore them all. You should really give these pads a try.

The customer service is great, the turnover time is good and the price is totally fair.

Hmmm, am I forgetting anything that should be included? Oh, she does custom orders and is great to work with.

Highly recommended. I give them a 5 for sure. Very Happy

These are the perfect pads for me. Very Happy I hate wearing bulky or obvious pads and that is one thing I was concerned about when I started using cloth: the bulk factor. These pads are slim and trim and not even noticeable. My typical purchases are the mini pads, the regulars and the thong liners with wings. I never thought I would be able to wear cloth pads and a thong at the same time. Boy was I wrong! The thong liners are amazing, they fit your panties perfectly and comfortably. I'd buy a liner in every fabric if I could. Definitely give Vaj Pads a try, you won't regret it. Or maybe you will, once you try them you'll be addicted and spend far too much money on the site like I do. But it's worth it. I'd say these are some of the finest cloth pads on the market, from the seamstress aspect to the absorbency and customer service. All A+!

Would definitely recommend.

I gave Vaj pads a five- they really are great pads. I use the liner size without pul, and haven't had any leaks with a lighter to medium flow. The fabrics selection is amazing, and the construction and stitching on the pads is well done and will last for a long time. I have washed these up three times now, and even after being dried in a dryer, there has been no shrinking at all, and they still look new. Also the shape is a good one- I would highly recommend these pads!

I rate these pads a 5, definately. I'd actually rate them higher if I could, ha ha. My daughter actually turned me on to cloth pads, at first I thought she was nuts. But I gave them a try and the first one's I used were the Vaj Pads. They were heavenly, and I was shocked at how thin they actually are. For some reason I thought that cloth pads would resemble what they used to be like, which was thick and bulky and uncomfortable. Not at all! I can't even tell when I'm wearing the regulars. I actually have tried other brands since my first batch of Vaj Pads, but I always end up going back to Teresa at Vaj Pads for my orders because they are by far my favorite.

I've had many specific order requests and every single time she's taken my custom work orders and filled them perfectly. She is a sweet and patient young lady who has exceptional customer service skills. I even sent some fabric in to her once for a custom order as a gift (a sports team flannel) and she made up 35 pads for me with the fabric and they were adorable. And she gave me free priority shipping with tracking for the pacakge, which I thought was very nice.

The pads are constructed well and wash up wonderfully. I have some Vaj Pads that have been run through the wash cycle and dryer more times than I can count and they still look great and don't need any extra care. You don't even have to iron the pads out, just wash and wear, which I like. The stitching is very professional and she color coordinates the back fleece with the top fabric so well. They're just beautiful pads.

I would, with complete honesty, suggest Vaj Pads to anyone interested in purchasing cloth pads. It's a great experience and Teresa is a great business woman. She has mine and my daughters vote for sure! Oh, I almost forgot about something. She made a special little package for my grandaughter one time with cute prints like Care Bears and Little Mermaid just to be nice, I thought that was the sweetest gesture. I had mentioned to her that my grandaughter was really interested in the cloth pads and thought they were so cute and she was so excited about a younger girl being interested in cloth that she made her a gift. Too sweet. Give Vaj Pads a try, I know you'll be happy.

Customer Service: She replies to emails fairly quickly, and the emails are always friendly. I had problems with my last 2 orders, but she is sending me the correct pads along with an envelope to send the incorrect pads back in.

Pad Quality: They are sewn up very well, and I like the shape of the pads. However, I think they should be made slightly more absorbent (or have an option to be made more absorbent) . There is only the top layer of material, plus a very thin layer of cotton type batting material inside. I would think the overnights would be more absorbent, but they're exactly the same as the regulars, with the exception of being longer and having wider flared ends.

Time: One order (2 pads) took about 4 weeks, (3 pads), 2.5 weeks, (1 pad), 1.5 weeks.

Overall order: 2nd order got a bit messed up. One pad had PUL when I asked for it to be left out. I ended up with an overnight instead of a regular, too. I ordered on the 23rd, but the website showed that I ordered on the 24th, so I didn't get the free pad (paypal shows payment being sent on the 23rd)

Edited by AmandaPanda on Sat Jan 05, 2008 8:21 pm: It has been 1 month and no replacement pads nor contact.

The absolutly most amazing Pad I have ever worn! Out of all the pads I have ever tried, these were the MOST comfortable. I was concerned at first because of the thickness (since I have an unusually high flow) but they held well. They look good and feel great, the velour is my favorite.

I will not get pads anywhere else! Thanks VajPads!

I have four VajPads minis and they are among my favorites! They are perfect for everyday wear or light to medium-ish flow. The shape is so comfortable, and I appreciate the narrow crotch width (2.5 in.) Teresa has the most amazing selection of fabrics, I could just go nuts on her site!! Unfortunately I have enough pads for now, but if I ever need more liners, I will definitely order VajPads.

VajPads are also beautifully-sewn and professional-looking. I experienced great customer service from Teresa, as well. She cheerfully added PUL to my minis instead of the nylon she was using at the time for no extra cost. She also deleted the fleece at my request and used plain flannel for the backing, because I just hate fleece. She was so sweet about the whole thing. There was some shipping mix-up and because my order was a bit delayed, Teresa threw in a free mini. What a nice surprise!

The prices on the pads are also extremely good!! They are worth more than what she charges. Smile I give them a 5!!

I have seven of her mini pads and three regulars. I ordered the minis without PUL so I could use them as everyday liners. I absolutely love them. They're quite comfortable and usually stay in place. The sewing is pretty good and her fabric selection is amazing. The contoured design is also much appreciated. The regulars are incredibly thin. I would, however, advise against the velour pads. Instead of absorbing my flow I bled off of the pad and onto my jeans in less than two hours. It wasn't even that heavy a day. I feel like I wasted seven dollars on that pad but now I know not to buy synthetic velour. Overall these are great pads.

It took three weeks for me to receive my order which isn't too bad for a large (10 pad) order.

I just got my order and love them I will be ordering more!

I really like my VajPads, and have ordered more as Punky's Pads are so difficult to get hold of at the moment.

I agree with the comment about lack of absorbancy. I do seem to saturate the pad very quickly, and I have had a few problems with leaking. I think that the more you wash the pads the more the absorbancy of the fabric will increase.

Customer service is great, and international shipping costs are very reasonable.

I give Vaj Pads a 5! Very Happy I love these pads, they are my favorite so far of all I have tried. They are super thin and she offers the best selection of fabrics that I have seen on the net. I don't get why some have said they are bulky or thick. The only thing I can think of is that they have one of her earlier designs from when she first started sewing. Because her design has changed tremendously since then and they are now some of the thinnest I own. (I have a couple of her oldest design as well.)

I haven't had any problems with leaking. You just kind of learn when you need to change your pad I guess. The overnights are to die for. I always had problems with leaks at night until I tried the overnights. Now I can rest without worrying I'll be leaking all over my bed and clothes.

I use the mini's and regulars during the day, and choose between them depending on my flow. The mini's are the best little pads, I swear. And they're the perfect shape and thickness and absorb a surprising amount.

Customer service is excellent and she works with you so well if you have any specific requests or customization needs. And a lot of times she'll throw in her cute little liners for free. Gotta love that.

I think shipping is very reasonable and her packages her orders cutely and nicely.

I love Vaj Pads and would recommend them to anyone and everyone. Once you try them you'll love them.

I have to say, I"m really not impressed with the vajpads. yes, there was a huge selection of fabrics, but quite honestly, the pads aren't that good. They're thin enough that I'm quite worried about bleeding through all the time, HUGE and thin. The regular pad is for me, way more than big enough to be an overnight pad, but I'm worried about wearing it over night, since its so thin. Quite honestly, the whole thing is confusing. I ordered a regular pad, without PUL, and I got one, and also a wingless liner, I think it is, and it seems like the two ought to be worn together for double thickness and security, so you don't bleed through, but I don't know how you would do that. For an overnight pad, the size might be good, but 10 x 3 inches is far too big for me for regular, seeing as I'm a very small woman. between the weird shape, weird size, very slow shipping (admitedly, it was for an order without pul but still), and thinness, I will not be ordering from them again, I think.

Re: Vaj Pads (US/CAN)

I find it hard to know what to rate these, but I'll rate them a 5.

I've had 2 Vag Pads. One of the long night ones, and one of the shorter ones...

The Longer one I got was an earlier version (a couple of years ago), and it has really stiff waterproofing inside that is a bit crackly sounding. And the stitching was sewn through the pad, and I have leaked through that a couple of times. The backing flannel looked quite "cheap" (thin/grainy). Having said that, the shape and fit of the pad though, were fantactic. Nice and long, but not too wide through the crotch. I do like the shape.

The shorter one I got was an upgraded design (not long after I got the first but I think it's how they are made now), with no stitching right through, and it's fleece backed with different waterproofing inside. This pad is much better, soft and non crinkly Smile The shape is nice and comfortable, and the pad is sewn well.

I have heard that customer service can be slow (both in getting an order completed, and getting communication from the seller), however I got my pads a while ago, when things weren't as busy, so did not have any problems.
