Vivianne mentioned these the other day and they piqued my interest so I checked them out on the Little Cloth Kiwis website (here
). The quality of the underwear looked great, and I was in need of some, so the idea of also having pads that snap in place in them sounded cool. I purchased a set of underwear with snap in liners, and I cannot speak highly enough about what I bought!
The underpants are super comfortable, to be honest I would expect to pay more for underwear like this. I am very very tempted to buy lots lots more but I feel bad like I'd be taking all the stock lol! There are a couple of wee (size 16 I think?) snaps in the gusset (is that the nice way to say crotch?) and I think if you wanted to wear the unders on their own one day, I doubt you'd notice they're there. But for me I'm loving being able to snap in and out a fresh liner so I haven't tried.
The pads are gorgeous, very well made, and when snapped into the underwear you hardly realise they're there. They snap in at both ends so there is no way the pad can slide one way or the other or bunch up front to back. The design of the underwear means they aren't tempted to bunch up sideways either. Revolutionary!! You can also snap in an optional wing piece though I haven't needed that yet (using liners for beginning/end of AF and during mooncup use).
What really impressed me was the consistency of spacing between the snaps in my underwear and the snaps on the different pads I have purchased - they are placed with military precision. I also thought it was pretty cool that the cap on the pad side of things is hidden within the layers of the pad.
I can only say great things about the concept and the way it has been put into practice by Eco Moon. I have made a second order already less than a week after my first and I am frankly tempted to buy up a WHOLE lot more, I just felt like I should let others have a turn too. Seriously. I was just browsing and noticed the monkey undies and now I want them too. And the skater boy ones. And then there's the pad choices...
I will buy more over time though, I am sold. I'll have nine snap in liners shortly, and three pairs of underwear, just need a "few" more
In my million emails back and forth to Keela from Eco Moon (she was very patient as I chose my underwear/pad combos) I learned that there are plans to update the Little Cloth Kiwis website over the next week or so so that there's lots more flexibility in choosing which underwear you'd like to go with which pads. ATM though you can just chat with Keela once you've made your purchase to make your choice from the varieties she has available. The underwear options are loaded up already, these are some of the coolest undies I now own http://www.littleclothkiwis.co.nz/87799 ... price.html
Eco Moon also make the more regular sorts of pads (non snap-in pads) though I haven't tried those, but I did also get a handy and discreet little pad-sized purse that you can place clean or used pads in if you are out and about.
One very happy customer here.
