Why we're sticking two fingers up to 'normal', 'maxi' and 'super' pad sizes

Why we're sticking two fingers up to 'normal', 'maxi' and 'super' pad sizes

Who’s sick of pads that simply DO NOT fit? You? Yep. Us? Double yep. Well, times are changing girl… Introducing our brand new bettypads.


They’ll legit be no more shuffling down the school corridor convinced that everyone can tell it's your time of the month as they’re made especially for girls – designed to fit better, feel better and basically be better. 


Want to know more? Course you do...


What’s ‘normal’ anyways?


After years of soul searching, we’re still unsure. We don’t like being labelled as ‘normal’ – so neither do our pads. Instead, we’ve numbered them from 1-4 so you can pick the fit that's right for you, however weird and wonderful you are.

Gone are the days of being embarrassed by needing a ‘super’ – heavy flows are real, huns. Our products not only use a waaaay more discreet labelling system but they still have those important features like wings and mega absorbency, making your period a whole lot easier. Finally you can be you without the judgement.


So how do I know what size is right for me?


We’ve binned the idea of  ‘maxi’, ‘super’ and ‘normal’ once and for all. Cos’ lets face it, the heaviness of your flow ain’t nobody's business. Here at betty, whether you’re a 1, 2, 3 or 4 we think you’re awesome and we’re gonna help you feel it. 


Our size guide is pretty rebellious (hey, we can’t help it if we don’t follow the rules). You pretty much need to try all of them on for size. Remember, it’s all about you and how comfortable you feel, not your dress size or your age – because numbers, shmumbers. We were never any good at maths anyway.


If you want a rough guide, it’s basically this: if you like wearing baggy pants covered in dinosaurs (just me?) then you’ll probs be a 3 or 4. If you are more of a slinky knicker enthusiast, you might be a 1 or 2. Still not sure? Just order a sample pack to find your fit. Trust us, whatever pants you like the best, we’ve got you and your flow covered. Period.
