Dustie Bottoms Review and Giveaway

For my first review and giveaway ever, I am going to be reviewing Dustie Bottoms cloth menstrual pads.  Dustie wrote to me the first time that we spoke: "Hi! I'm Dustie, the owner, operator and creator behind DustieBottoms. I'm a WAHM to five wonderful kiddos. I started DustieBottoms out by making diapers and children's accessories, and soon realized there are so many other avenues of being eco-concious. I started making cloth pads because my best friend and my youngest daughter both had reactions to the disposable ones. My friend, she developed TSS. My daughter can't come into contact with the adhesives in the disposables. I quickly realized that cloth pads are FUN, and functional, and soooo much better for our health in the same way cloth that cloth diapers are better for our children's health and the health of our environment. I became a convert myself when I found myself unprepared for my first postpartum cycle lol."  Just to give you a little background on how these came to be :-) 



The pads that Dustie sent me were an overnight and a regular pad.  These pads have the cutest pattern to them ever.


The pads are also super soft, so much better than any kind of disposable pad that I have ever used.  These pads make me feel much better about having to wear a pad at all.


The other wonderful thing about these pads is that they fold up into the little squares.  Even though these menstrual pads are a little bit larger, they are still able to be folded up.  I really like that because it makes it a bit more discrete.


The normal pad has very good absorbency.  I was able to use this pad all day on a light day.  I love when I don;t have to make 20 trips to the bathroom in one day haha.  These are made out of a cotton velour outer that touches the skin and also bamboo and hemp fleece.


The overnight pad was definitely absorbent enough for a pleasant overnight experience. There were absolutely no leaks and the pad stayed in place through the night. Soft and comfortable makes for a good nights sleep without worry.   The overnight pad is made just like the normal pad however it also has Zorb 2 in it for extra absorbency.
