Sanitary pads have wings so you can easily attach them to your underwear. This way they won’t slip off, peel up or wrinkle while you’re wearing them.
Why disposable pads have wings:
The wings on these pads are sticky, so they can curl under the sides of your underwear and stick to the bottom of the underwear. Better quality pads stick well but some cheap ones may lose their stickiness during use or if you’re regularly moving or are highly active.
Why reusable cloth pads have wings:
Reusable pads have wings that usually have some type of clip on them. This allows them to clip under your underwear so they won’t come off. Unlike the sticky pads on one use disposable pads, the clips on reusable cloth pads are sturdy and made for repeat use, so they won’t easily detach no matter how active you are.

- Disposable pads with or without wings.
