Do thicker pads absorb more fluid?

Not necessarily. Thinner pads have the same amount of pulp as thick pads, but they are compressed.  So they absorb the same amount, they’re just thinner.  Pads that are longer – like Libra Goodnights – are more absorbent due to their size.  The bigger the surface area, the greater the absorbency.

Libra Invisible and Extra Thin pads have a special core that absorbs much more than you’d imagine. The only real difference between them is about comfort. Some girls prefer the feeling of a thicker, more cushiony pad and others prefer a thin one. Luckily we provide both so that you can choose whichever you like best.
