A pad needs not only to be absorbent and have a great coverage, because comfort is a very important factor, too. Modess boasts a raised center that allows a more body-fit design and a soft outer layer that feels good to the touch. It is not intrusive and allows itself to hug your body naturally, making you feel that you’re protected without the feeling of having an unfamiliar object that stays with you all day.
However, the quality that is expected for a big brand like Modess doesn’t quite reflect in this product. The absorbent material in the pad is not compact, giving off the impression that an attempt to lessen production costs took place. This, in turn, affected the absorbency of Modess.
Although fluids were easily captured by the pad and leaks are the least of concerns especially with its perfect fit, the amount it could handle before the fibers separate is not so much. After every use, the noticeable change in shape of the pad is proof of its lack of absorbent fiber compactness. Pads are first and foremost there to absorb a period. It is in this light that Modess should take note that their ergonomic design is not enough to keep consumers satisfied with their product – their napkins must do their jobs.
