"I've been buying these pads for years. I think they have great absorption. The flexi-wings stay in place once you wrap them around. (I've tried store-brand flexi-wing pads and they usually don't stick well. The "Always" brand always has good adhesive.) Besides these orange ultra thin "overnight" pads, I also like the ultra thin Always "overnight heavy flow" pads (in purple) for more coverage in the back. Try them out too!"
