not my favorite pad...

I bought one the large night pads (bamboo velour) from a local reseller so can't comment on the c.s.

My pad was a pretty green swirly color when i got it, but after one wash it had reverted to being an undyed color Sad

(i have a normal wash cycle with cold water, natural detergents, no bleach etc)

Not my favorite - the wings are really flimsy, and the whole pad is kinda floppy, and i find the shape of the curves really unnecessarily exaggerated. I've never leaked out of the pad, and it is well made (except for the wings), but it's definitely not the first one i reach for.

I've got 5 of these. I'd been searching for a while to try their Ultimate pad in stock (in a colour I liked), thinking it would be great, but I found it far too short to work properly. The back was too wide and poked out of my underwear inbetween the crotch and back (and my undies are sufficiently ample in coverage!). Which is a shame... it felt far too uncomfortable to wear. I'm keeping it for a night pad for my daughter when she first starts, as I think it might be more suited to a teen's smaller frame (as then where it gets wider will be further back on the buttocks). I would like to try their newer longer Ultimate pads, although they are quite pricey (given I could sew my own and I don't *need* more pads) and every.single.time I check they are sold out... so I probably never will get one.

The other pads though, brilliant! Quite similar to the Go With the Flo pads, although a lot of these pads are made with the wings overlocked/serged under the pad, making them feel trimmer. These have some lovely dyed velour tops, on a somewhat flimsy fleece base (being a single layer). But I've been careful unsnapping them and haven't had any problems with it stretching or anything. The only thing I don't like is that usually the listings will show a couple of pads and you just get one from that lot - but since they are different in the way they are dyed, I don't like that you can't pick the exact pad you'll receive.

I'd rate the Ultimate pad a 3 or 4 because it didn't fit well enough to be able to comfortably wear, the other pads though 5/5

I was drawn to this seller because her dye work is absolutely beautiful!

I have 3 bamboo velour pads of different styles and they're all very professionally made and comfortable. The edges of the pads are 'serged' instead of 'turned and topstitched' so they're thinner than most of my other pads. I initially thought the 12 inch "Ultimini" pad I own lacked structure and was a bit 'floppy' but I realized I just have to wear extra snug undies with this particular style. Now, I think its super comfortable and the absorbency is exactly where I need it without any extra thickness where I don't!

The 9.5inch wrap wing pad is one of my favorite day pads.. it has gotten me through my absolute heaviest days without any leaking or shifting/discomfort.

The 11inch heavy wrap wing is amazing for overnight, though a bit wider than I prefer at almost 3 inches (I prefer a 2.5" width, at narrowest point).

I highly recommend these pads! They are fabulous. I get blown away every time I receive one in the mail because the dye work is just so much more amazing in person. They are priced a little higher than some of my favorite Etsy sellers but they are worth every penny Smile

Try them!

I HEART Homestead Emporium

Post  FluffandStuff on Mon Jul 02, 2012 7:47 pm

Can I rate these a 10?
These might be my favorite pads if I had to choose. I find that almost all pad makers are good in their own way and I love many pads for different reasons but if I was going to a desert isle and had to make a whole collection from one maker, I think I would choose Homestead Emporium. I have about 15 of her pads and will probably buy more (I have a problem). I have a few different styles of hers and i love them all. They are so beautiful, just gorgeous and they make me feel like I am really taking good care of myself. Check out her blog and you will feel good about supporting their beautiful family. Gorgeous dyed bamboo, genius design, excellent quality, so comfortable, simple luxury.



Customer Service: Great (shipping will take a long time but they have that written all over their site so no surprises)
Workmanship: Excellent
Comfort & Fit: Silky soft bamboo, so many choices for fit, brilliant designs
Look: Might be the most beautiful dye jobs, very gorgeous pads
Durability: These seem like they will last forever.
Value for money: Good
