What Are Panty Liners For?

Still think panty liners are the same as those bulky pads that are just for periods? They’re so not the same thing. In fact, they couldn’t be more different.

Modern panty liners aren’t just for light flow, tampon backup, or for those days before and after your period.

They’re designed to keep you feeling dry, fresh and confident—no matter what day of the month it is. Especially for the days when you don’t have your period, but experience discharge after sex, or discharge during pregnancy.

What is the difference between panty liners and pads?

You keep pads in the bathroom. You keep panty liners in your panty drawer. Pads are for periods. Panty liners are for any day. Pads are bigger for period protection. Panty liners are thinner, shorter, and so small you’ll forget you’re wearing them. You (obviously) can’t wear pads with a thong. Some panty liners are designed to fold around even the tiniest thong. Pads keep your panties protected when you have your period. Panty liners keep you ready for anything as they combat white menstruation or brown vaginal discharge. You wouldn’t want to wear pads every day. You can wear panty liners every day you want to feel clean and fresh.
