These “far-out” pads with tie-dyed fabrics are thoughtfully designed. Featuring bamboo blend materials and black edging to minimize staining, these are probably one of the more high-end reusable pads on the market.
Domino Pads are made from high-quality fabrics such as Windpro fleece. In addition to the patterned pads, which are hand-dyed, they also offer pads that are undyed (called natural). Domino Pads are available in seven different sizes and five absorbency levels and come with wings that snap closed. Keep in mind, when you order direct from the site, every pad is handmade to order.
This requires a seven-day or less turnaround time for most orders to ship. To get the pads faster, you can buy ready-made Domino Pads on Amazon.com.
These pads are pricier than other reusable menstrual pads, and Domino Pads even acknowledges that’s the case. However, they state this is because they use the highest quality fabrics and durable construction techniques. The fleece they use as the waterproofing layer costs more than three times what a basic fleece at a fabric store would cost.
- Use leak-resistant Windpro fleece as the bottom layer, not non-breathable plastics
- Are vegan-friendly; they contain no animal products
- Have single-layer wings for less bulk
- Feature an open end design to allow for faster drying time
Hand-dyed fabrics such as organic bamboo velour

“These pads are simply heavenly soft to the touch, and I *love* them!” (Amazon.com)
“These are the only brand I own that don’t show at all through your clothes, even dress pants.” (Amazon.com)
|Downsides & Negative Feedbacks:|
Several customers noted that these pads are big; in fact, much larger than other menstrual products. This could interfere with the fit of the pads, especially if you’re petite. Another drawback to these pads might be the high price.
“Costly initial investment – $5-15 a month to $40+ for a small starter kit is a big jump in money, even if over time you will save lots and lots of money without the continued purchase of reusables.” (Amazon.com)
“I had really high expectations based on other reviews, but I just wasn’t that blown away by the fit of these. They don’t feel secure, and I ended up getting leaks.” (Amazon.com)

|About the Company|
A mother of two in Texas founded Domino Pads. The company began more than six years ago as a one-woman operation but has since expanded to a team of five work-at-home moms. The company’s founder started making her own pads following the birth of her first child and discovered that she felt so much better than when she was using disposable products. This discovery combined with a determination to live in harmony with nature has formed the company now known as Domino Pads.
