      I have always used Playtex tampons, as they give me the best coverage for tampons. I have tried many other brands, but always go back to this brand (I have used them since I was in high school when I was involved in several sports - busy lifestyle).
      I still have a busy lifestyle, and despite being on the pill, I still have very heavy days! I got a sample of the Ultras with my pack of Super Plus, and after trying them out (heavy days and overnight) I went out and bought a pack.
      They are also great when traveling, or when you have a lot to do but are on a heavy day - because you don't have to worry about running to the nearest bathroom at every hour. I don't have to worry when I sleep (on my heavy days) and don't dread my monthly as much - since these Ultras get me through the worst of it!
      You still have to read the directions carefully, as TSS still exists, but these Ultras have made my busy life so much easier!!!
      I hope this review helps!

      I bought these because I was experiencing leaks with super plus tampons. Playtex Ultra tampons are comfortable and provide good protection on heavy days. I didn't give more than 3 stars because I still have an issue with leaking - leaked just shy of 4 hours - but the issue could be with my body.

      Comments about Playtex Gentle Glide Tampons, Unscented, Ultra, 36 ea, 1 pack:

      For years I had searched for a tampon to handle my heavy flow and nothing worked. As a loyal customer to Drugstore.com, I discovered the Playtex Ultra by reading the reviews and highest ratings they provide for the items they offer online. I can't thank Drugstore.com enough for offering these online because there is NO STORE in Wilmington, NC that sells them. Before these tampons, I was absolutely terrified to go any place the first three days of my period for fear of an accident. I've used the Paytex Ultra now for 3-4 years and I'm able to go about my active lifestyle, confident and comfortable no matter what day of my period. I'm grateful. Thank you Playtex and THANK YOU Drugstore.com.

          This is a great product that is not sold off-line so I always stock up on them here as needed. For years my period has been very heavy and these really help me out. I used to not be able to go anywhere on day 1, 2 and 3 of my period. Now I can travel, shop and lead a normal life without fear of embarrassing leakages. When I learned that tampons made an Ultra size I tried all brands on this site and found that Playtex made the best and most comfortable and absorbant. I have reclaimed my life from my period so I am real happy now..

              Like many women my first day or two of my period are my heaviest. I used super plus but there was still spotting. Once I discovered the Ultra, there was no turning back. These perform like no other especially during long flights. I hope they never stop making these.

                    I use these for the first couple of heavy days particularly over night. The playtex ultra offer the highest absorbency from what I've seen so far. They could last longer at night but at least I only have to get up and change once or twice rather than multiple times.
