I'm new to the forum but love talking menstruation/pads/tampons. I'm interested in buying myself a sanitary belt and looped pads. Does anyone know a place that still makes and sells these? Thanks in advance for the help!
In the US and in a lot of other countries, you can usually find them on ebay. Search for belted Sanitary Napkins and Sanitary belts. Hospital supply company Medline imports private label Chinese made belted sanitary napkins and sanitary belts. Just google for them, some are sold on ebay, other retailers who buy from Medline will also produce hits.
Boots pharmacies in the UK sell Dr White's sanitary belts and looped towels. That really surprises me, because I reckon it would be decades since belts were on sale in stores in Australia.
Women who, when they started menstruating, used belts because adhesive pads weren’t yet on the market would long since have gone through menopause. So it seems to me that means some women choose to use sanitary belts over tampons and/or pads. I find this very strange, because if you look at the comments on the YouTube video “Women Try Vintage Period Belts” (see this thread started by Crossdresser: kayosflowforum.freeforums.net/thread/170/women-vintage-period-belts-views) from women who have used sanitary belts, there aren’t many positive comments about them.
