No matter how many adjectives you use or how “free” you feel in fitting rooms (and this is an example of why I always wash and dry clothing when I buy it before first full wear), THIS is the part I wanted to know. Anytime I could “feel it” when I stand up, that is too much. I cannot stand the ketchup-like smell from pads for this reason. It sounds you like are sitting on a wet diaper constantly. I will stick to bio-disposable, organic products. This just did not sell me at all. But I was pretty certain it would not considering I have hated pads since I was 15 and have never worn them since (23 years later).
