Party in my Pants!-Closed

Party in my Pants - Cloth Pads

About Party In My Pants:
Party In My Pants [PIMP] is owned and operated by two sisters, Luci and Lydia Daum. Luci is the brains behind the design and Lydia is in charge of the marketing. Both women are obviously great at multitasking. Luci also makes hats using the name Alley Cat Hat Co. on Etsy and Lydia has her own website showcasing her printmaking and design. These sisters make up the company known as PIMP and have been creating wonderful cloth creations for over 10 years!

My Experience:
I have been cloth pad curious for a while now. Ever since my family began cloth diapering and saving so much money/reducing so much waste, I wondered if cloth pads were an option for me instead of using disposable pads. Disposable menstruation products have been around so long that people rarely consider an alternative. If you were to actually think about it, would it make you sick to think of how much you contribute to landfills? You can easily cut out many things you use on a day to day from your garbage. Switching from paper towels to non-paper towels is one, converting your family to only using glass water bottles is another, but the older girls and women in the family can make a contribution and switch to cloth pads.

When I received my Luxe Liner from PIMP, I was ecstatic. I washed it and wore it immediately. I have to say, I was an instant convert. It's nice not having to feel the papery-plastic like disposable liners. The liners are made up of 2 layers of fabric, the flannel type I received was 100% cotton for both layers. It felt like nothing was there while wearing them! I also liked that there was no issue about the liner moving around. The snaps on the wings made it easy to wear.
 Who doesn't love surprises? When I opened the package from PIMP I was expecting only the Luxe Liner I had ordered, but the girls at PIMP are more awesome than that. They included a mini pamphlet telling you about the liner, how it is used, how it washed and how absorbent it is. They also threw in a sample of dark chocolate. [Which is brilliant because everyone knows chocolate is a girl's best friend!]
Now, as far as how they hold up goes, I have used my liner several times since I received it and I just throw it in the wash with my daughter's cloth diaper laundry that I do every other day. I don't machine dry any of my diaper/ mama cloth laundry, it all hang dries in my apartment so as to not weaken the materials. The liner has taken the abuse well. It still looks brand new, I expect to get a lot of time out this liner!
So, if you are cloth curious, I recommend you try some cloth pads! PIMP has a tab at the bottom of their website for cloth curious women to try a liner for FREE! You just pay the shipping.

Luci and Lydia Daum of Party In My Pants have graciously offered to sponsor a giveaway of a
