As I danced around the bathroom for almost 15 minutes, I finally race to the computer to exclaim to woman around the world, (a-hem...hear yea, hear yea...."The Perfect Pad is Here!!"--that is if you have heavy periods like me.

I can now sleep in peace knowing that my good linens will not be ruined, nor will my favorite pajamas! These pads are super-duper long, with wings everywear...yet not so bulky as one would imagine. Somehow they're thinner than the standard overnight pads, but with greater coverage. There are channels and redirects built in to prevent leaks.

I feel safe in these...I feel comfortable....I feel like I can sit through a whole movie on my heaviest day and not be nervous when I stand up!! Thank you to the makers of ALWAYS brand for this. dare I say it... i love you guys!!

I used to absolutely love these pads! I have recommended them countless times over the past few years. When this pad first came out, I thought they were the most amazing pads to ever come along. There was nothing out there quite like them. They were incredibly thick, wide, and intensely absorbent. They were luxurious, plush, and super comfortable. I never had leaks anymore (not even at night during my heaviest flow). There was no other pad out there even remotely as thick or wide as these used to be. That's why they never moved around or bunched up (because they were incredibly thick-NOT ULTRA THIN). I felt very confidant wearing these out knowing that they would protect me from embarrassing leaks or spillage. They were also a Godsend for me when I got the flu and suffered intense incontinence every time I coughed. If I had these so called new and improved pads during that time, I would have leaked urine everywhere!They took a fabulous niche product that people fell in love with because of it's exact specifications and changed it completely! What were you thinking Always! Why mess with something that people loved for a reason! How ridiculous! The first thing I noted was that they are literally not even half as thick as they used to be! Gone is the thick, wide, plush look and feel that we have come to expect from this pad, and in it's place is a flimsy, extra long, ultra thin, just like any other ultra thin on the market! They took away the width which is so important in protecting you from having spillage over the sides and elongated the pad instead so that it creeps up into an area where it doesn't belong all day long (I kept having to adjust it constantly)!In addition, because it has lost all it's thickness, it bunches up like an accordion constantly! It doesn't even stay in place because it's so flimsy and thin! Almost no movement at all causes this thing to bunch up leading to heavy leakage! These are worthless now! To add insult to injury, they irritated my skin, which has never happened before using these pads (I guess it's something in their new "wicks away moisture" design)! I called Always and sure enough, they modified these pads in January 2012 so once the old stock runs out (which it is doing now) everyone is going to wake up (I am already seeing other reviews like mine at [@] about this)! I buy these in bulk and had purchased several packages before I realized what was wrong! You can tell that you are getting the new pads because they look so much thinner even in the packaging (and it says "New and Improved" on the package towards the top).Disappointed is putting it mildly! After looking at several different alternatives (not fun and very costly) I found a Poise Pad with wings that come close (but still not as great as these used to be). Big mistake Always! If it's not broken, leave it alone for God sakes (if people didn't want a bulky pad, they had a million other ULTRA THIN choices out there)! Raise the price if you must, but changing EVERY reason that we loved this pad was a really big mistake! You should have just changed the name on this pad. This new and improved pad is nothing like it used to be. You cut the thickness of the pad over a year ago as it is, and I nearly stopped using the pad there and then, but now it's so thin and flimsy, that it makes no sense to use anymore to keep leaks at bay. There were a million ultra thins out there for people who are ultra thin themselves or don't have a really heavy flow, but you took the one pad that was made for people like us and did away with it. I've been a customer for years on this pad, but it's time to look elsewhere again (and I notice more synthetics in the part that comes into contact with your skin as well). Goodbye Always. It was good while it lasted....

Comments about Always Maxi Pads with Wings, Unscented, Overnight Extra Heavy, 20 ea:

This pad has transformed how I sleep on my period. I have never felt so protected during a heavy flow and a time when you are already stressed enough and just need a good nights sleep. It is nice and thick, but yet surprisingly not as much like a brick as one expects. The length is amazing and your panties feel so nicely protected. I used to always wake up to leaks or on the verge of one in the middle of the night and now I don't worry. I have never had a leak. I used to only use tampons, and I don't even bother overnight. These pads had me so happy. I have also relied on them when I experienced some bouts of flooding to get me through some 4 hour flights and they absorbed so much.
I was out with girlfriends the other night and the topic turned to everyone's current products of choice. I must have raved for 10 mins about how great this pad is and I am not prone to doing that! We even stopped at a drugstore on the way home and I picked up a pack to challenge them all to try one night with this pad and see how they felt. I've already received some feedback and there are some huge converts. Thanks Always!

    Comments about Always Maxi Pads with Wings, Unscented, Overnight Extra Heavy, 20 ea:

    Desperate to make it through a four hour flight while dealing with a heavy flow I turned to these pads. I was literally bleeding through other overnight pads in less than an hour and knew whatever I used needed to hold up for at least 4-5 hours. These pads saved the day! They cover so much of your underwear and absorb fast and furiously. I used to also have to get up every few hours at night to change my pad and these have given me the security to make it through a full nights sleep, something I desperately needed! Even when waking and making the dash to the bathroom, these pads hold up and absorb fast.

      I bought this for overnight usage, and was very disappointed. The feel of the pad is soft and comfortable. However, the cons are--it's bulky, not easy to put on, and the wings are not positioned to protect leakage on the edges. It advertises that "All-Around Barriers Pull Wetness Away from Edges", and it's not true. Would not recommend for overnight usage.

      Comments about Always Maxi Pads with Wings, Unscented, Overnight Extra Heavy, 20 ea:

      I have never done a review for a pad before, but I cannot say enough good things about this pad!! After suffering with a suddenly heavy flow that worsens around 2am, and soaking through a super plus tampon and Always Overnight Maxi, I picked up a package of these and I have slept comfortably ever since! No more getting up 3 times a night to change a super plus tampon and overnight pad. I feel so protected, have had no leaks, and they stay where they are supposed to. I tend to leak at the front and they gave me lots of coverage at the front, while keeping my back end nicely covered too. Yes they are bulky, but I find that reassuring knowing I am covered. I used to stick to Always overnights maxi or Overnights Infinity and I will not go back for the heaviest nights during my cycle. My flow suddenly increased overnight, and the pad held everything. The two sets of wings are a lifesaver. I usually have to make a run for the bathroom when I get up to avoid leaks, but I had no such worries.

      These are, by far, the best pads for use during extra heavy days or overnight during my period. They're very long and very absorbent, and I love that I can sleep in them every which way in bed and not have to worry about any mishaps.

      Comments about Always Maxi Pads with Wings, Unscented, Overnight Extra Heavy, 20 ea:

      The first time I used these, my period had skipped about three months, and I had to go to the doctor to get those pills to make me bleed. When my period eventually came back, it was very heavy. I normally use tampons, but even the largest size just could not keep up.

      These quite honestly feel like you're strapping a pillow between your legs. But it covers my entire panty area, front to back, so that even when I'm sleeping, I can relax, knowing I'm not going to wake up to a huge mess. Best pad for a heavy flow I have ever used.
