Kotex Ban the Bland Maxi Pad Contest

A Maxi Pad Might Be Your Ticket to Fashion Week

Considering no one sees our choice in feminine hygiene products, I find Kotex's new maxi pad design contest a bit strange. The brand — which has thought out of the euphemistic-period-talk box before with modern tampon commercialsteamed up with Sex and the City designer Patricia Field for its "Ban the Bland" contest. Women (or guys) over 14 are encouraged to design a fashion-forward maxi pad. Three winners will get a trip to September's NY Fashion Week. Just hope no one asks you how you got there!

Yeah, why can't pads be pretty? I mean underwear is varied designed and only sexually active people have anyone else see their I'm all for decorated pads especially if they make it less uncomfortable for new teen users

I've always said the problem with pads is that they're not pretty enough.
