Thin and comfortable to wear, pantiliners are a very versatile product. They can be used in many different situations. For example, if you are using a tampon, you might like to use a pantiliner, too, for a little extra protection. You might also like to wear a pantiliner when you don’t have your period, to help absorb normal vaginal discharge, perspiration (sweat). Pads are thicker and more absorbent than Pantiliners. They can offer you better protection when your menstrual flow is heavier. Pantiliners can be worn any time you want to feel a little fresher and more protected.
