Blissful Bump Sponsor Spotlight Review: Swircles

November 4, 2012

As we prepare for our big event we will begin sharing some of the amazing sponsors who are generously providing prizes for the Blissful Bump Giveaway Bash! This spotlight review is to share our experience with Swircles.

I was sent a few pairs of nursing pads from Swircles to review for you. Swircles carries a variety of prints as well as plain white nursing pads.

  • 100% Cotton Nursing Pads are made out of 2 layers of flannel and 2 layers of high loft cotton core.
  • Solid color nursing pads (whites and pastels) are the same color on both sides
  • Print nursing pads are print on one side and white on the other.
  • PUL Nursing pads are the same as our cotton nursing pads with the exception of a layer of waterproof material added to the back side.

I received 3 pairs of pads. A solid white, printed 100% cotton and a printed pair with a layer of PUL.

I haven’t started nursing yet, and we were told to stop nursing the toddler when we found out we were pregnant again so my testing process for these nursing pads is a little different. I wore them as I normally would to test out the comfort. I also tested the absorbency using a measured amount of water. Here is what I found:

When wearing the nursing pads I actually forgot they were on! The flannel fabric on the inside was very comfortable. I also am a big fan of the size! They measure 4.5 inches across the middle. I wear a D to DD cup when nursing and they were large enough to cover more than enough of my breasts. Depending on the bra I wore the edges were slightly visible in a thinner fabric bra, such as a sports bra. Anything with even a little padding concealed them very well!

The first time I tried to do the water test it beaded up. So I washed them, which I should have done to begin with. Being a cloth diaper user I should know better. After washing them I did notice a slight change in the shape of them. They became more contoured to the shape of the breast. This was an awesome discovery! So when I started the absorbency test I placed a piece of paper under the pad to see if any water leaked through. They all absorbed a great amount of water with the PUL lined ones holding the most! I am confident that these will not leak when changed at the appropriate time!

Swircles will be offering a pair of nursing pads in our Blissful Bump Giveaway Bash! We are going to have a whole nursing package put together for this event so make sure to sign up for email reminders so you don’t miss the giveaway!


I received a sample in exchange for this review. I received no other compensation and all opinions are mine and are 100% honest!
