and i jumped up and down and shouted, "me! it's me! pick me!" because i have been pretty unhappy with my breast pad experiences thus far. the disposables seem like a waste after a while and the plain-jane cotton ones i bought are nothing to write home about.
... i think i found something to write home about. bamboobies was kind enough to mail me a sample to... sample, and rigorous under-shirt testing began.
no problems with absorption, fit, or staying in place. bamboobies have a unique heart shape that i worried would show under my clothes but, as advertised, they didn't. i like to wear mine upside down for the best personal fit. an extra bonus i noticed was that when one side did get milk on it it didn't stiffen up like other pads sometimes do. it stayed soft and flexible so i could keep wearing it all day. they are thin, absorbent, pink!, organic, and antimicrobial.
now, the good stuff...

but... there's just one more little thing that sweetens the organic deal:
i wrote to their office and told them how thrilled i was to test them out, and i went to bat for you, darlings. bamboobies is very kindly going to give away a two-pack to one lucky reader.

*full disclosure: this is not a paid review. i don't normally do reviews at all. but i tested these out and i really liked them, liked them enough to share them with you. bamboobies didn't ask me to, i'm not even sure they knew i had a blog when they sent them over.
