Great question! Here's a breakdown of each tampon size and how much liquid it can absorb:
- Light: < 6 grams
- Regular: 6-9 grams
- Super: 9-12 grams
- Super Plus: 12-15 grams
For most women, we recommend starting with all Regulars. If you find yourself needing to change your tampon more than once every 4-6 hours during your period, switch up to a combination of Supers and Regulars, or if your flow is very heavy, all Supers. You should always be using the lowest absorbency needed to manage your flow.
