Lil-Lets SmartFit™ tampons are designed to work with a woman’s body. Unlike most other UK brands which expand lengthways, our SmartFit™ tampons expand all the way around for your comfort and protection against leaks. Available with and without an applicator.

Firstly, what exactly are tampons?

  • Tampons are made from a cotton like material that is compressed into a small shape that is worn inside your vagina to absorb menstrual fluid.
  • There are two different types of tampon, known as applicator and non-applicator types. This gives you a choice about how you insert them.
  • With a non-applicator tampon you can guide it into place using your fingers.
  • With an applicator tampon they come with a plastic or cardboard tube that you use instead of your fingers. The tubes have been designed to push the tampon into place for you.

Here's why tampons are really good:

  • They're perfect if you love being active and going swimming.
  • It means you don’t have to take a bag with you every time you go to the loo (they’re so small you can hold one in your hand or put it in your pocket), which is a relief if you're worried about keeping your period private.
  • Tampons are worn inside your body so are less likely to have an odour.
  • No matter how heavy your period flow is, there is an absorbency size that'll be right for you.
  • Unlike most applicator tampons that expand lengthways, all Lil-Lets gently expand width-ways for a snug, more comfortable fit, making it less likely that you'll have any leaks.

MORE USEFUL INFORMATION

We're all different and that's true about your period too. You might have a very light flow or a very heavy flow. This is why tampons are available in lots of different sizes or absorbencies as they are often called.

Here’s an example of what your period flow may look like.

Period flow chart

As you can see, your period flow can differ from day to day and if you use tampons, you may need to use different sizes for each stage of your period.

Some women may use up to 3 different tampon absorbencies during their period.

But this is not true for everyone and you'll have to work out your own period pattern.

Lil-Lets have the widest range of tampon absorbencies in the UK so even if you have a very heavy period you will find a product that is right for you.

The absorbency you use isn’t related to how big or small you are. It’s to do with the change in flow you experience when you’re ‘on’.

This actually varies throughout your cycle, with the heaviest blood flow usually occurring at the start of your period.

It’s therefore normal to use more than one absorbency depending on which day of your period it is.

We suggest you change your tampon absorbency to match the heaviness of your flow to ensure you’re well protected throughout.

And with 6 different absorbencies, we have the widest range available in the UK to ensure that you’re always completely protected whatever day it is.

When you remove your tampon after 4 - 8 hours, if it feels tightly held and there is very little blood on the tampon, then try switching to a smaller size for the rest of your period.

On the other hand, if you notice a little blood on your underwear after wearing a tampon for less than 3 hours, try going up a size for a while. When you do this, you'll need to switch back down again, once your period starts to become lighter.

By choosing the right size, you may avoid leaks if the tampon is too small and discomfort if the tampon is too big.

Also, it's important not to wear the same one for longer than the recommended time of 4 - 8 hours.

Tampon packs carry lots of useful info on them.

Lil-Lets absorbency table

In fact there are four different ways to identify the right ones for you.

Absorbency – the amount of fluid a tampon can hold.

Droplet – is an image of a drop to signify how absorbent a tampon is; one droplet representing the smallest amount and six droplets in a row for the most absorbent.

Tampon size – is the name used to describe the different sizes available, for instance the smallest tampons are sometimes called Light ones or Lites, then we have Regular, Super, Super Plus, Super Plus Extra and then the largest absorbency size is called Ultra.

Menstrual Flow - describes the amount of blood loss you notice on any one day.

You'll also find tampon boxes are colour coded for quick reference, such as yellow for regular.

Tampons should be worn for between 4-8 hours. If you need to change your tampon after less than 2 hours of use, consider switching up to a higher absorbency tampon on your heavier days. Remember to change to a lesser absorbent tampon once your flow becomes lighter.

Tampon myths

We’ve all heard them. The old wives tales about what happens when you wear tampons.
But that’s exactly what they are. Myths. So don’t worry, tampons are perfectly safe and easy to use. Here are a few of the most common myths:

False! The opening to your womb is about the size of a matchstick so a tampon would never pass through it and would never get lost.

False! The only way you can lose your virginity is by having sexual intercourse.

False! As long as you have started your period and feel ready to use them, tampons can be used by menstruating women of any age.

False! If you position your tampon in the right place, you can’t feel it at all.

This is a complete MYTH!! The difference in the size of each tampon is very small indeed and the vagina can accommodate a tampon regardless of its absorbency. The size of tampon you need is actually based on how much blood you lose during your period.
