Why should you be making the switch?
Reusable products have been around for ages. Back in the day, the means to properly take care of them, along with the lack in high tech fabrics made these the less attractive options when disposables came to the market. With reason, it was much easier to use it and toss it. But what they didn't think about were the long term effects this would cause on our wallets, the environment and our health.
When you eliminate harsh chemicals and plastics that the disposables pads have, this can help many menstruators achieve a more positive experience with their period.
By offering fun prints in soft and absorbent fabrics, with no chemicals, no adhesive and ecofriendly, you'll quickly see why more menstruators are ditching disposables and loving reusables again!
I just wanted to share that I’ve just completed my first period using all reusable pads and I’ve noticed that I didn’t have any cramps... I don’t know if it’s coincidence or not, but these are changing my life!
Sophie makes incredibly comfortable, lasting cloth pads. Many amazing fabrics to choose from in great prints and plenty of sizes. My pads wash well and I have never had an issue with absorbency. Will always purchase from Sophie when I am in need of one.
I was tired of always spending money on disposables that would give me rashes. One day I came across Lady Crimson Cloth Emporium on Facebook and asked for input. Finally purchased some reusable pads and I'll never go back! They are comfortable and come in different lengths, sizes and colours/patterns. No more crispy crunchy sounds. Now I get excited to pick which to wear when I start my cycle!! I'm in love.
Moon time came last night & I finally got to try out my cloth pads & all I can say is I’m never going back to disposable anything.
Sophie is easily one of the sweetest and most loving small business owners that I know. She is so committed to her craft and producing the best, eco-friendly products! She's made periods less dreadful and being environmentally aware easy and affordable.
I love how she has created a girl power community. She puts thought into all her products and even asks customers what they want "love it!" great quality in the fabrics and perfect pricing. thank you!
One of the best changes I've made is to go cloth! The difference is hands down amazing and I love collecting fun patterns and prints. Small changes make a difference down the road...

Lady Crimson Is a Safe and Inclusive Space to Shop!
As a cloth pad business, it is important to me that I create an inclusive line of products. Those who menstruate are not only people who identify as women, but also transgender and non-binary individuals. I want everyone to feel comfortable in this space and have access to period products they will love. While I do sometimes forget, I am working hard every day behind the scenes to make everyone feel welcome – after all, everyone is unique and should be celebrated as such.
Sam Duclos was kind enough to chat with me and offer suggestions on how I can create a judgement-free and inclusive environment (and products) so everyone feels safe and welcome. They will speak about periods and menstruation and the experience of those who are transgender, non-binary or gender neutral. I truly appreciate their willingness to help me navigate through this, and also teach all of you who may not know or understand it. Don’t let this be the only step in your quest for learning though – this is just the beginning! The responsibility for continued learning falls on us, so keep researching, reading and LISTENING to their voices!
A few words from Sam:
My lovely period-having people are here for you and we are listening. An inclusive line of products with transgender, non-binary, and gender nonconforming individuals is what we can offer to the community, and coming together to help bring awareness and education is always an important step in that process. Some people who menstrate may be wearing packers, some may want to bind their chests, especially during such a dysphoric time of month. All I ask is that you please do your research and be your safest self. Periods can cause a lot of dysphoria about the body we're in, and I, as a non-binary person, totally understand that feeling. It can be a heavy feeling, but we all want to feel like our best selves, and in these pads? I feel so much safer to be me, even with the dysphoria.
I want to hear from YOU, tell me how I can make your period a safer time. I'm only an email away!
We recently got together with Heidi Ulrichsen, to talk about LCCE's pads and other reusable products!
