“ / Type: Pantyliners „
On the whole I am not really brand loyal, I like to mix things up and try different products, especially if they are on some sort of special offer, but when it comes to sanitary pads I tend to stick the brand I know work best for me, Bodyform. I like to always be well stocked in this department and have a whole draw specifically for these products, one of my essential items is Bodyforms string thin liners.
Bodyforms string thin liners come in pink cardboard packaging, the front shows the brand and product name along with a picture of one of the liners. There is also a "new" sign on my particular box, although I have been buying these for quite sometime so I am a little unsure as to why this is there!
General information on the product is given on the sides of the box. Bodyform claim that they are striving to become more Eco friendly "were going the right way." More information about this can be found on their website www, bodyform.co.uk.
Bodyform make a variety of sanitary pads and liners, these particular liners have been made specifically to be used in string / thong underwear. They are larger at the front and go thinner at the back.
Each pack contains 30 liners, for some reason they are not individually wrapped and I find this to be a bit of a pain, it means carrying them around in my handbag is a bit of a fuss and not very discreet, I tend to pop a few in a small plastic bag if I want to take them out with me.
The liners themselves are quite small and very thin. Bodyform gives them just half out of 6 on their flow chart, so they are certainly not designed for everyday of your period. Bodyform state that these can be used everyday to keep you feeling fresh but this isn't what I personally use them for, I tend to wear them for the last day or so of my period when my flow tends to be very very light and they are more than suitable for this.
To use you simply remove a liner from the pack, peel off the adhesive strip on the back and then position into the thong / string. They remain in place during use and do not move about or bunch. As with any liner, Bodyforms string should be changed regularly, these are super easy to remove and leave no sticky residues from the adhesive on pants.
Each liner has a "lingerie pattern" on it, including butterflies and birds which makes them look rather pretty. I find them really comfortable to wear, in fact I usually forget I am using them altogether and am able to get on with my day. They have a lovely cotton soft surface which feels incredibly soft and they are quite breathable which is very important in the hot summer months.
These are my number one choice when it comes to liners for thong / string underwear and I have no problems recommending them to others looking for a comfortable liner to use either on a regular basis or on those "in between" days. They have a RRP of £1.65, however they are often on offer for £1 and during such offers I tend to stock up. They can be bought in Supermarkets, chemists and on line.
I wear thongs during the summer months and these pantyliners are ideal for thongs and G String underwear.
The liners are quite thin and flexible which makes them even more comfortable to wear. The liners are soft and they feel nice when they're brushed against the skin. The liners are a nice shape. The front of the liner resembles the shape of a heart which fits the female body shape perfectly. The bottom of the liner is thinner, which makes it easier to fit into a thong. The liners are easy to use and they come in discreet packaging so you can easily carry them out and about with you. They're very light, airy and reliable. As the liners are very thin they wouldn't be suitable for use during your period as they do not absorb a lot of liquid. They're more suitable for daily use and they can be worn under tampons in case you experience any leakage. Using the liners in this way gives me some extra peace of mind.
I sometimes suffer from vaginal discharge (sorry folks!) and these liners are perfect for that as they absorb small bursts of discharge and they keep me feeling fresh and dry all day long. The liners absorb sweat too, so I use them at the gym when my lower area begins to sweat.
The liners stick very well and they don't ride up, nor do they remove themselves from fabric.
They're priced at around £1.50 per pack, which isn't too bad in terms of value.
Great pantyliners for thongs!
As I have got older, and my periods have become less predictable (sorry lads!), I have found the need to start wearing a panty liner for extra protection, especially around those certain times of the month, especially with being caught out a while ago and being caught without any products to use, I can tell you I was mortified and will never allow myself to be in that situation again!
As someone who has always worn thongs (again, sorry lads!), I find that wearing normal panty liners are ok, but you do run the risk of them folding over on themselves with the full intention of waxing areas that shouldn't be!
After a quick perusal of the toiletries aisle when last shopping I found these "Body form - string liners" on offer, at £1.00 a box for 30 pads, good value I thought....if they worked!
I have to be honest I did umm and arr for a good few minutes before buying them, due in part to how tin the normal liners that I have used are, the idea that something so thin and unsubstantial would any good when narrowed too seemed pointless, though I did eventually relent and bought a box to try.
The box itself is very distinctive compared to any others in he range as the box is tapered at one end, obviously the same as the liners themselves.
There is a small amount of information to be had on the box itself, this being brand name, product name, contents, and product description.
The description states that these should fit your underwear like a glove, ensuring a snug fit and shouldn't be noticeable when worn, disguised slightly (or at least as much as a panty liner can be!) with a beautiful lingerie design, thin and flexible with a cotton layer making this a breathable pad, which in fairness you would hope for, considering where it is going to be!
When I opened this box I found that despite my earlier worries of this being to thin to work, these were actually made of a slightly thicker material, feeling almost foam like in thickness, though these are (as stated) flexible enough to wear and mould around your lady parts, always a must!
Each pad is shaped at the top (the widest part) with a heart shape, which then tapers into a narrow end, which fits perfectly to normal thongs, tough you would never get these attached to actual string thongs, as the product suggest you could.
The lingerie print is very discreet, but more a suggestion of a pattern, with the pattern being reciprocated on the liner paper, with again stays put when in the box, but peels off easily and is completely flushable.
The sticky part of the pad is a thick strip down the centre of the pad, and attaches well to the gusset area, and stays put until you need to remove it, though the pad itself isn't stated to be flushable, so I tend to throw them into the rubbish, just in case.
These obviously are not meant to soak up much liquids, but to be used a pant protector, and as I use them for, just in case, which they work perfectly fine at, though for ladies (sorry for the last time lads!), when you get to the "end" of the monthly (you ladies know what I mean), when the flow isn't heavy at all, these are ideal instead of using the bigger pads.
These are a really good pad, so good in fact I will stick to these one's, even if at full price (around the £1.40 mark), and are available from most good stockists.

Review for Bodyform String liners. Now in a more modern looking pink packaging than the one shown above.
30 liners per pack.
For your average thong.
I don't know about the rest of the female population but these days 100% cotton thongs aren't that popular, or comfortable. Mine are usually a mix of acrylic, lace and cotton, but never 100% cotton. There is this tiny 4cm strip of cotton along the gusset of a thong in which these pantiliners tends to stick, they don't stick to any other part of my underwear. They curl up the wrong way sometimes at the front (which may get 'sticky' for ladies with hair). The narrow strip towards the back sometimes folds in half length-ways, doesn't stick to your underwear and gets far too far *up* where you don't want it to be. Multiple times I have found myself removing them and continuing the day without a pantiliner.
For cotton thongs they are incredibly good, the pantiliner itself is absorbent for general use, comfortable and lightweight. The shape of them is rather funky the front of the liner looks like the top of a love heart, it fits the shape of your area nicely.
On the packaging it tells you the absorbency of the liner by filling in a specific number of water droplets out of five on the pack. This pack has an absorbency of half a water droplet. So not a good liner to be wearing if you are expecting your monthly ladies because if it comes early, this will not catch anything!
Hypothetically if you constantly wore cotton thongs and you changed your liner once a day, these would cost you up to £4 a month to use. Amongst all of the other things we women have to buy; sanitary towels, tampons, moisturiser etc I think these should be no more than £1 a pack and thus I deem these too expensive. If they stuck to all thongs then maybe it would be a reasonable amount to ask but unfortunately not.
These are unscented which is a good thing as you will not be at the risk of thrush/itching/discomfort.
Currently £1.75 at Superdrug.
£1.59 at Boots.
Available at most larger supermarkets for roughly the same price.
It's not that I wish to discuss either my choice of underwear or in fact that lovely time of the month with the world, however I do think that these Bodyform pantyliners are worth reviewing and I have certainly come to rely on these on a monthly basis, come the end of that little visit of Mother Nature, or when my body decides to produce other discharges at various times of the month.
I purchased these Bodyform string pantyliners from Tesco for around £1.50, although I think they are currently on offer in Sainsbury's for £1. The packet contains 30 liners, and the packaging itself will probably stand out on the shelf since it is different in shape to other more cuboid shaped boxed. This box in more triangular although it has a flat bottom and top to it. My box differs slightly from that in the picture at the to of the screen in colour, since mine is mostly grey with a little bit of yellow at the top, although it does say that mine is a new version of these liners.
These liners are actually referred to on the front of the box as light, and show they are really only for very light amounts of liquid, whatever that may be. On the side of the box there is a helpful little chart showing the various bodyform liners available alongside the various amounts of moisture/liquid they are designed to absorb. The string pantyliners always fall into the category of light liners, as for obvious reasons they will not absorb large amounts.
As I said, these liners are new from bodyform and alongside the NEW sign at the top, it states that these are 'incredibly soft and reliable', as well as feeling like your 'favourite underwear'. On the side of the packet, they also promote four qualities of the product namely that they are:
(have a) cotton soft surface
As flexible as your underwear
The company lieks to promote the fact that by using these liners you will feel secure, yet hardly notice that you have it there in your underwear.
I always keep a packet of these in my bathroom drawer alongside my normal time of the month products, and I keep these for the end, when the flow is at its lightest. I find these very easy to apply to your underwear with the little sheet removed from the back, and I also find that when you wish to change the liner, they are very easy to remove from your underwear - this is something that I have noticed about cheaper versions, which are sometimes harder to remove once you wish to throw it away. I do find that they are very comfortable to wear, they fit my underwear perfectly and do everything that they are meant to do in terms of absorbing any liquid. They are so small that I can put them into my handbag and thus be able to change them when I want without trying to hide them inside something so no one would see. I also think they are reliable in that they do not move the entire time they are on, thus ensuring that they do absrob everything.
All in all, if you wear this kind of underwear regularly or just for some occasions, then I think they bodyfrom string pantyliners are ideal. They are only to be used for light days, but they are very comfortable and you would never know that they were there, which are all the things that they are supposed to do!
Now, I'm a bit of an anorak when it comes to sanitary towels - if Kotex makes a huge fuss 20 times a night on the tele about a new product then I'll try it. In the last 12 months I've used towels with and without wings, towels with a little cuff round them that's supposed to hold in leaks (but felt like an incontinence nappy) and even black towels for if you happen to start your period while wearing that all important little black dress. I didn't really see the point of the black ones if I'm honest cos a) when I'm on my period nothing on this earth will coax me into anything more glamorous than trakkie bottoms (loose ones girls!) and b) what is the point of having sanitary towels to match your dress when they're inside your knickers anyway? Anyway, I digress. I'm not Briget Jones. I don't have any big knickers even for when it's the time of the month. I wear thongs. All the time. Well, if I'm truthful I wear thongs for about 2 weeks of every month (just before, during and for a couple of days after my period) and the other 2 weeks I'm quite fond of going commando. Unless I happen to be wearing the little black dress I mentioned earlier and then I put a glam thong on. So imagine my excitement in Boots the other day (well, month) when I spotted Bodyform (Wooooooooah Bodyform, Bodyform for yoooooou) String Towels in a pink plasticey box. Thank you Bodyform. They've designed a towel especially for us girls who like to wear thongs and even slipped a snug material 'jacket' on the towel which according to the box is to make the towel soft and ultra absorbant. Opening the box (and ripping the lid clean off in the process) the towels are wrapped individually in a vile pink wrapper - why not just bite the bullet and wrap them in red? I take one out and unwrap it and it's tiny and pointed at the back, so tiny that it doesn't look like it's going to work. Oh well, I'm not going ou
t today so I'll try it and if I flood my trousers it's nothing a quick shower and a hot wash for the trousers can't fix. Fitting these little bleeders (pardon the pun) to my thong took longer than I'd anticipated. The adhesive is pretty good but the problem arises when trying to stick the wings onto the outside of my thong. The advice given is to fit the towel as far back as possible and fold the wings across the outside of your thong. Easier said than done. The particular thong I was wearing that day has a thin little string going up my bum and there simply isn't enough space to fit the wings. Problem solved, when you put the towel in place stick the wings so they're overlapping slightly and they stick to each other much better than they stick to the fabric of your knickers. You know I said the adhesive is pretty good? I was cooking dinner and as I bent down to take the roast out I felt a sharp sting so went into the bathroom to investigate. One of the wings had unstuck, folded inself inside my knickers and had stuck itself to my pubes! LOLOL I can laugh now but believe me I felt like I was having a Brazilian wax as I yanked it off... And this happens regularly with these towels I noticed because the wings are so small it doesn't take much effort on your behalf to make them unstick. Saying that, every time I've used these towels the main area of the towel stays in place which is a good thing. Absorbancy? Bodyform String are so small you'll find yourself worrying the first couple of times you use them in case they can't do the job they're designed for - which is holding as much blood as you need them to until you can get to the bathroom and change it. Dont worry. These are amazingly absorbant. The longest I've had the same towel on for is around 5 hours and I was starting to panic when I realised I was another hour away from being able to change it but when I did go and change ther
e was n't a leak in sight. Occasionally you'll get those horrible red stains along the side of the towel but that's only when one of the wings has come unstuck, but as I said the body of the towel stays in place perfectly and lets face it even if you're using regular sized towels you'll sometimes leak every so slightly. They feel soft against your skin too which is because of the 'soft touch' technology that Bodyform have applied to these towels. I chose the 'normal' Invisible String towels as my periods aren't too heavy but if you suffer with heavy blood loss then I wouldn't go for these as the size of them means they just won't cope. Also if you're off to the gym don't wear one of these or you're likely to either wax yourself (as I did) or *horror* have the towel slide down and reveal itself to the gorgeous gym instructor from the leg of your shorts! They coped really well for me and I'll definitely be continuing to use them in the future. I paid £1.69 for this pack of 12 Bodyform Invisible String and considering the average price of a pack of Kotex thin towels is £1.99 for 12, I think it was a bit of a bargain. To re-cap, these towels are just as absorbant as if you use regular size towels (and lets be honest, this is the whole point of sanitary towels), they fit nice and snug in your thong and feel really comfortable. So go on girls, don't dispense with the glam and sexy underwear just because the painters are in (sorry!) grab a box of these and you won't be disappointed. :o) oOoOo A QUICK JOKE oOoOo Son - Daaaaaaaaad, I'll never understand women. Dad - Don't worry son, you're not supposed to understand them. *whispers* Anyway, they're not human. Son - Not human? What do you mean? Dad - Think about this son - how can anything bleed continuously for a week every month and not die??? oOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoO <
br> Th anks for reading.
I recently started flossing on a regular basis. I don’t mean the teeth kind of flossing, I’ve been doing that for ages. I mean wearing thong underwear ;O) As you are probably fed up of hearing by now, I’ve made a lot of changes in my life recently – divorce, new hair and makeup, new wardrobe, and now, new underwear. It’s all calculated to boost my confidence and change me from the mousy little housewife I was into a playful sex kitten (haaaaaa!) But one little change inevitably leads to another, and there came a time when my new string underwear got me into trouble. I had to decide what to do on my monthly “sky diving weekend”. In other words, what does a thong wearer do when they are surfing the crimson wave and don’t want to use tampons? How does one reconcile the unfortunate consequences of being a woman (i.e. being on the blob) with the wearing of itty-bitty scanties? The answer hit me like a bolt from the blue (well, actually like a packet from the shelf of my local discount chemist) – Libresse Bodyform Invisible String Towels (please note these are the towels, not the pantiliners, as stated in the category heading). The answer to my monthly cycle/butt flossing issue? Let me elucidate. *****The Package***** Bodyform String towels come in a blue and pink plasticised box, rather than the usual plastic bag. On the front it states that the pack contains 12 normal 3mm towels with wings. These are rated three “blobs” out of five, which I suppose means they are suitable for average menstrual flow. The packet also says these are “An ultra thin towel especially designed for string underwear. The towel stays in place, has a highly absorbing material and a cover designed to give a soft and natural textile feel”. There is also a picture of how the towel should be fitted to your thong. *****The Towel***** Inside t
he box, the towels are individually wrapped in a pink plastic sleeve (pink, you notice, not red! There’s never any red on these products. No no.) The towels are folded twice, and the first thing you notice when you unfold them is that they are very small compared to a normal towel. The front is similar to most “ultra thin” sanitary towels, being rounded. But that is where the similarity ends. String towels taper to a thin point to match the shape of the underwear (supposedly). And these towels have “wings” about half way down the tapered sides. The surface of the towel feels very soft indeed, as the blurb on the packet promised, and does actually feel like cotton fabric. *****Fitting***** The instructions say that for optimum comfort, you should fit the towel as far back into your underwear as you can. And here is where the problems begin. The towel tapers down to a point about three quarters of an inch wide. The adhesive on the towels is really poor, especially on the wings, and there is so little fabric for the towel to stick to that it just doesn’t stay put at the back. This problem is exacerbated if you happen to have lacy thongs, as you haven’t got a hope in hell of getting the towel to stick (and let’s face it, if you are going to wear a thong, you want it to be a pretty lacy one and not a workmanlike cotton thing). It was like trying to balance a mattress on a washing line! I fitted the item as best I could and went about my normal day’s routine. *****Wearing***** Within moments of leaving the bathroom, I get a strange feeling down below and have to return to see what’s going on. The towel has slipped because one of the wings has come unstuck from my underwear and managed to weld itself to my inner thigh and the pointed back end has skewed and stuck itself to my buttock, setting up a very uncomfortable tug of war every
time I take a step. Why is it that these things will stick like limpets to my skin, but not to my k nickers? I decide to put this down to a faulty one, and pull another from the box, press it into place, and head off again. I do the vacuuming, put a load of washing in the machine, and it’s shopping day, so off I head to the supermarket in the car. The towel feels quite comfortable against my tender bits, due to the soft-feel cover, and I start to think this might actually work. Unfortunately, as I get out of the car and head to the trolleys, I feel something is amiss. I head for the Sainsburys toilets only to find that the towel has gone Awol. I search around and find that the slippery little bugger has sloped off and stuck itself to my left buttock. Sigh. I’ll give it one more chance. I apply another one and go about my shopping. By the time I reach the cereal aisle, you’ve guessed it, the towel has gone walkabout again, this time upwards, and is now providing comfortable protection for my stomach. At this point I realise that Bodyform Invisible String is not for me. And I am breathing a big sigh of relief that I decided to test them at the light beginning of my cycle. *****Absorbency***** These towels are so small and so thin that I was very sceptical about their powers of absorbency. However, there have been quite remarkable advances in technology in the area of feminine hygiene, so I was prepared to give Bodyform the benefit of the doubt. In the short amount of time that I managed to keep the towels in place, they seemed to absorb very well. I wouldn’t like to try using them on heavy flow days though, and to be fair, the packaging does say they are for “normal” and not “heavy” flow. The soft-feel cover is quite comfortable and managed to stay dry feeling though. But to be honest, the towel didn’t stay put for long enough to
give it a decent test. *****Conclusion***** Bodyform String are made of comfortable, hig h performance materials, but I think the design and the poor adhesive really let them down. I just don’t think that string underwear and the monthly visits of your “friend” are compatible. And who really feels sexy enough for skimpy knickknacks at that time of the month anyway? I stopped using tampons, partly because of concern over toxic shock syndrome, and partly because I found they made my period-related cramps and back pain worse. So, I have decided to compromise. I shall continue to floss when I’m feeling sexy or when I have “visible panty line” issues, but on those monthly visits from my “friend”, I shall get out my old faithful combination of “Bridget Jones’s” (big knickers) and Always Ultra. Huh! Some friend! Cheers for the read! Allie xx P.S. I apologise to any male readers if this contained too much information for comfort……but why are you reading a sanitary towel op anyway? ;O)
