Asda sell some night pads, Always maybe? They come with or without wings and are really long.
Can’t help you with the men products but speaking as one of many women who has post menopausal stress incontinence (and that’s still there after having an operation:() I find that the cheaper pads are not worth buying as they tend to scrunch up. I’ve tried every brand on the market and stick to Tena or similar. I always stock up when there are special offers. Have you thought about buying in bulk online? Most things are cheaper that way
I'm with you on the reusable cloths pads, so much more comfy and they last longer, a bit of an outlay to begin with but worth it.
I did take them back and give product feedback (not at all embarrassing...!). So, for me, a false economy as they weren't usuable. Perhaps sometimes you get what you pay for....
I made my own cloth pantyliners (PLs) for in-between days, but have yet to work up the confidence to make a pad - unsure how many layers would be needed to give adequate protection, alongside a layer of PUL fabric. PLs cost nothing as they were made up from scraps of brushed cotton left from making pyjamas. Found a pattern online. They have 4 layers and work well - I think they're coming up for 4 years of constant use and they are faring extremely well. I suspect I may get more like 7 years use from them. I agree with other commenters, they are vastly more comfortable and at 99p per monthly box of PLs, the saving is huge already. I just chuck them in with the towels or nappies on a hot wash.
