This is a towel

Getting to know our towel.
The Bodyform towel is cleverly designed to allow it to absorb blood easily, but to stop the blood leaking out again. The top layer of the towel has a soft surface so that it feels comfortable against your body. Inside, there’s a core made of cellulose (that paper’s made from) as well as other materials. This absorbs the blood and makes sure that it stays inside the towel. On the underside of the towel, there’s a plastic membrane that stops the blood leaking out that way. Underneath the towel, there are sticky strips that provide extra protection. Some towels have wings on the side to make sure that you don’t get any blood on the edges of your panties and keeps the towel in place.

When you use a towel, start by removing the protective paper on the back. Place the towel in the centre of your panties (with the sticky side down, otherwise it won’t feel very nice at all!). If the towel is sitting crookedly, remove it carefully and put it back straight – otherwise, the blood could leak outside the towel. Change your towel every 3 to 4 hours, except during the night, when you can wear the same night-time towel all night long. If your period is heavy, you can change more often – just do what feels right for you.
