You know what I hate in the fashion world? More than anything? Blandness. And you know where I find blandness most problematic, most offensive, and most generally intolerable? No, not shoes or watches. Not even ties. Where I REALLY loathe blandness is in feminine hygiene products. But THANK GOODNESS: someone is finally taking a stand against bland(!!):
No, I'm not making this up (though I wish I was). I snapped a picture of this ad in my local supermarket. The caption on the bottom is a bit blurry, but you can probably make out that the major text (aside from the catchy stand/bland slogan, of course) is: "the only pad with multiple designs."
I can't tell you how many times I've been shopping at the grocery store, browsing aisle after aisle in frustration at the single-design maxi pads. I mean, one design? That's downright dowdy! Am I expected to wear shirts with only one color? Monochromatic shoes? God, no. So why should I be doomed to sport pads with only one design? Luckily for all of us, Kotex knows exactly what stylish women want. Multiple-design pads. Nothing less.
We are also advised to look for these exciting new products in the fem care aisle. Thanks for the tip, Kotex! No longer will I wander Safeway wondering why I can't find the maxi pads alongside the cereal or orange juice. I also appreciate that "Fem Care" is in a special pink font of its own. It makes me feel so, so... so womanly, somehow. Thank you, Kotex. [sniffles, dabs eyes.] Thank you.

LMAO if there's only one style of pads available, how come I have like 50 types to choose from. I think you've identified a niche market: sanitary products for butches. Have to make the packaging very masculine to match their packaging lol!
Personally, I don't mind the way Always Infinity is designed. The colors are interesting, the design reminds me of the 60's version of the future (though I say that completely ignorant of what that means, it's just what comes to mind), there are no flowers, so it's fine. Besides, the technology is beyond amazing (which is why I will not only pay full price for them I don't mind paying double compared to regular pads). It's one of the few times when I want to applaud the engineer instead of smack them upside the head. I can feel confident about what I'm wearing and I don't have to stick a single thing inside me, which my body appreciates. I know it's not good for the environment but I have to listen to my body. Hell, they could put pink neon on the infinity pads that say "I'm a girly girl" and I'd buy them, that's how awesome they are. lol
