Tesco Assorted Washproof Plasters
Advantages: Different sizes, work well
As my baby bump grows so do my feet unfortunately and as such most of my shoes are now getting rather tight. This happened last time I was pregnant to my feet and thank goodness they went back to their original size but in the mean time most of my shoes now rub in all the wrong places. This is such a pain as I don't want to buy new shoes that will last for just a couple of months and so my solution is plasters.
I generally need to buy quite a few packs as each day I reapply in several places on my feet. My trigger spots are the back of my heel and the side of my foot and so each foot takes two plasters per day meaning four in total. The best I have found so far are from Tesco. We have a little Tesco express on out housing park and they stock these thankgoodness. What I like about this pack is that there are four different types of plaster in the box as different shapes fit different parts of the foot better and it is so nice to be able to just buy one pack instead of four different packs. The sizes of the plasters are as follows:
4 plasters sized 25x 76 mm
6 sizes 38x38 mm
12 sized 19x38 mm
I think there are obviously more of the 19 x27mm as these are seen as a normal sized plaster and will generally cover up most blisters/scratches etc. I like to use these ones around my toes and the top of my foot as they wrap around the foot well. My favourite however are the 38x38mm plasters. They are square obviously and work so well on the back of the heel where you need a bit of extra coverage. The extra coverage stops the back of your shoe rubbing and working the plaster off as you walk. I find the plasters hold well but I do only wear them once during the day as I like to take them off at night so I never wear one on my feet over night but I do have to pull them off as they have stuck quite well so I think they would last a couple of days on say your arm where they do not get so much use.
The plasters are all individually wrapped which is great as this means I can just dump a whole loads in my bag and not worry that they are getting wrecked in my bag or getting dust on them which will then effect the cleanliness of them. They are easy to unwrap and then when you get into the plaster there are two bits of white paper stuck to the back. These overlap each other so I pull one side off, place the plaster where I want it on my foot and then pull the other one off and hey presto the plaster in nicely in place.
The plasters are waterproof too so they are smooth on the outside, unless say a fabric plaster. To be honest I prefer these as they do not pick up dirt on the rim of the plaster like fabric ones do. Also, if your feet get sweaty these are quite good at holding off the moisture in your feet.
A pack of these 40 plasters costs approximately £1.50 which I think is really good value and they do their job well when it comes to my feet and are a product I recommend.
