WHICH PAD IS RIGHT FOR YOU?
We understand that the switch from disposable to reusable period pads can feel a little daunting and you might not know where to start.
That’s why we’ve created the below guide to help you to quickly and easily find the Bloom & Nora pad that’s right for you.
WHAT SIZE DO YOU NEED?
As a rule of thumb, to make the switch to reusables, the pads that you need will reflect your disposable use. If you currently use disposable liners for when your flow is light, ‘normal’ pads for daytime and ‘super’ for night-time, opt for a mix of our Liners, Midis and Maxis.
See our guide below to understand what might work for you and your period.

Normal / Regular sanitary pad
Super / Nights sanitary pad
Super Plus / Extra Heavy / Postpartum sanitary pad
BLOOMERS OR NORAS?
Our Bloomers and Noras are both designed for performance and comfort. The only difference between the two styles is in the inner fabric, which sits against your skin.
Bloomers have a bright-coloured natural bamboo inner which is super soft, making them the top choice for those who value comfort.SHOP BLOOMERS
Noras have a bright-white polyester inner with a stay-dry and stain-repellent finish, meaning they're perfect for those new to reusables or worried about staining.SHOP NORAS
HOW MANY DO YOU NEED?
This really depends on your flow, the length of your period and how you wish to use them. To fully convert to reusables, we recommend that you will need approximately 10-12 pads, if you plan to wash every second day. Your reusable pad should be changed every 4-6 hours.
TRIAL KITS AND FULL KITS
Whether you’re looking to try reusables or ready to fully commit, we sell handy kits to make the switch as easy as possible!
Contains: 1x Mini, 1 Midi, 1x Maxi and 1x Mighty
Our Trial Kits are perfect for those looking to test reusables or find the right size pad for them. The kit comes with an Out & About bag which makes using reusables out of the home, clean and simple.
Contains: 4x Minis, 4x Midis and 2x Maxis
The Full Kit has everything you need to adopt reusables for a normal period, washing every two days. It also comes with a Bathroom Bag for storing your rinsed pads between washes, and an Out & About bag for changes on-the-go.
WHAT ELSE MIGHT YOU NEED?
We sell a range of storage accessories to make using reusables simple. We recommend that you buy a Bathroom bag to store your used pads at home and an Out & About bag to store your pads when out of the house; both made from 100% recycled plastic.
The Bathroom bag makes storing used, rinsed pads easy. The strap means that you can hang it out of reach and it’s machine washable too; simply pop the opened bag and it’s contents into the washing machine and they’ll tumble out clean and ready to use!SHOP BATHROOM BAGS
OUT AND ABOUT BAG
The Out & About bag has two waterproof compartments; one for used pads and one for clean. It can hold 4-6 reusable pads and folds neatly in half, with a popper fastening. Simple to use and pop in your bag, is an on-the-go must have.SHOP OUT AND ABOUT BAGS
