Take the Stayfree Challenge and Say Goodbye to Granny Panties #Contest

Stayfree Challenge Ultra ThinsIt happens to all of us*. Usually at the worst possible time. Not that there’s ever a good time. You know, that one time you’re wearing white pants and you ran out of your usual brand just that morning. It only happened to me once but I learned my lesson. The best part is that you don’t have to make the same mistake I did.

In case you haven’t heard, Stayfree has come out with a new flexible-fit design for their Ultra Thin – Regular with wings pads. Their thermo control keeps you dry, cool and comfortable. I can’t really comment on the cool and comfortable part, but I can comment on whether it keeps you dry or not. How do I know?

I took the Stayfree Challenge!

The purpose of the test is to see which pad is the most absorbent. The nine steps were easy to follow and took less than 5 minutes to complete. It didn’t appear (to me) to give favour to any one product over the other. Unless of course they assumed that I would pour the liquid left to right but I didn’t. I did it right to left because I’m like that.

And the Winner of the Stayfree Challenge was…

Note that I had to work within time constraints, take pictures and vine the event so pretend that I didn’t miss the 5 second part where I put the 5lb weights on top of the blotters and pads and that I allowed for more than a millisecond per frame.

To say that I was surprised that Stayfree was the winner wouldn’t be true. However, I was really intrigued by the process. I saw the 5ml be poured onto the pads and how within 30 seconds it was all gone. Not only that but the pad didn’t appear all bulky or change in any visible way (besides turning blue from the dye in the liquid)**. I even checked the underside of the pads and to this day, I can’t figure out where all the liquid went. As The Kids say “magic”.

Stayfree Challenge Results

In addition to the fact that they out performed their competitors, I also liked the following features;

1. Their regular pad is ultra thin. Seriously, really thin. Less bulk, easier to conceal,
2. It has wings. A must for a regular pad,
3. It feels so soft. Like cotton.

So there you have it. I took the challenge. If you’re up for more fun, Stayfree has some funny and short videos that will get you laughing and shouting hurrah. Note that some reactions may vary.

    I been using another brand for years and it has wings. I recently bought some stayfree, not sure if they are the same as these. I threw the other bag out. I just can’t wait till I don’t need them at all!

    That is awesome! It is such a pain when you are having a heavy bleeding day and your pad doesn’t work! Now that I’m older I seem to bleed lightly a day, bleed to death a day, then be pretty much over it in another day or two. Hate that heavy day! I do use Stayfree but I also use other brands. I think the results speak for themselves!

    I am in the process of switching to reusable pads, but I used to use Stayfree pads and always liked them better than Always!

  4. Elaine Buonsante

    I won’t be trying this experiment as I don’t need any of these products anymore. How I wish that they had them back in the day when I did need them!

  5. Debbie W

    I’m happy to say, I don’t need these products but feminine protection has come a long way. I shutter to think of what we had to use when I was younger.

  6. Jessica

    Love the VINE, haven’t seen it used like this before but it was really effective in showing the steps that you went through

  7. Carla

    That is good to know – I usually buy them because of the cost but its great to see how they compare (and beat) other brands as well. Makes me feel good about choices 🙂

    And I think I do own the ugliest granny pants but I am way to embarassed to show those beauties for the world to see , LOL!!

  8. Lynda Cook

    this would be an interesting challenge to do, but at least you get to see for yourself how well that they are

  9. Jessica

    I love Stayfree… though they keep changing the packaging and I get confused and buy the wrong ones. GAH!

  11. md Kennedy

    I am now beyond the “period” age, but do have the little leakies every once in a while. I am so going to try these!

  12. Amy Lovell

    This is too neat! i did a similar experiment with always infinity and it failed miserably. Glad to see urs passed

  13. Cheryl Grandy

    I’m always looking for an absorbent pad. Thanks for doing the challenge. And no, I’m not showing anyone my granny panties.

  14. Rene

    My needs have changed a bit since getting my Mirena. I love how the website provides options/selection based on the type of underwear you have, and your personal needs. Great idea!

  15. Elaine Buonsante

    Thank goodness those days are over! I always found that Stayfree brand were the softest when I needed that protection.
