Mini Vivi Heavy Pad (Single)

Mini Vivi Heavy Pad (Single)

  (4 Reviews)

Mini Vivi Incontinence Pads are designed for light to moderate urinary incontinence. They are also suitable for heavy menstruation. The pads are handmade in the UK.

Each Mini Vivi Conti Pad comes with non wick wings and charcoal impregnated microfleece backing to help absorb smells.   Each pad has a very thirsty hemp/cotton blend core with a hidden waterproof layer for extra protection.

13" Original hold approx 250ml
11" Original hold approx 150ml
8" LITE hold approx 60ml

Recommended Uses:
8" Lite light incontinence to regular menstrual flow
11" Original are great for medium incontinence, urge incontinence/stress incontinence or as night menstrual/post partum.
13" are popular for larger ladies, more coverage for nights or very heavy menstruation, average day incontinence, postpartum with extra confidence/coverage.

Most people think they need a higher absorbency Minivivi pad than they actually do.  To give you a guide the average tampon holds 12-15ml. The average menstrual pad holds 25ml. The standard Tena Lady holds approx 30-40ml maximum. An entire average period is 60-80ml, average bladder has first urge to void at around 150ml and will release around 120ml in a stress/urge incontinence situation. Sneeze wee is around 50ml tops.

Pads are sold individually.

Applying the Pad
To wear your pad place the grey side down against your underwear with the longer end at the front, then fold the wings around the gusset and snap together underneath.  Each pad comes with two size settings to suit different widths of gusset and you can adjust the position of the pad by sliding it forward or back once you have it pulled up your underwear.

Removing the Pad
To remove the pad reach under the gusset and unsnap the wings. There is a special tab to make this easier to do. Then fold the pad and store in a wetbag or container until ready to wash. DO NOT SOAK as this may damage them and reduce their lifespan.

Washing and Drying
Wash your pads at 40/60deg with our usual detergent. Due to being hand dyed we recommend washing them separately until you are confident they are no longer loosing any colour. DO NOT USE harsh products such as vinegar, napisan, bleach could damage the materials. DO NOT use fabric softener as this can reduce absorbency speed and levels.
Ideally air dry your pads however they can be tumbledried on low if required but regular tumble drying can reduce their lifespan.  Reshape while damp.

Incontinenance pad
Sunday, 10 January 2021  | 

I bought this for my grandmother who is trying to switch to reusables after using countless disposable Tenas after seeing myself who have switched to a reusables lifestyle with csp, nappies etc.. And after struggling to find one that would worked as an incontinance rather than period pad, this worked.

I'm sure these suit some people and they do what they are supposed to do. However I have stopped wearing them as they were making me sore from the friction. I have had similar effects from cheap disposable sanitary towels. Feel like I'm back to square one
