Rated 1 out of 5 by from Why can’t they tell you the length in inches? Telling me the length is “long” or “extra long” is meaningless with no point of reference. Tell me IN INCHES!!!! I’ve bought “long” & it wasn’t long enough. Stupid. Not buying again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from New is not improved! I’m having a terrible time finding a pad that protects as the old style did. The thin bunch up, waterproof liner flips downward, cover does not absorb quickly enough. I’ve tried every style you currently have in stores. Can’t count the number of embarrassing accidents I have had with new & “improved” products. Please, please bring back the original thicker pads with old top cover. Regular length, absorbancy 5. I’m only 5 ft tall so long is too long for me. Just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I dislike the new shape, its too narrow The new shape is too narrow and allows overflow in the middle.of the pad.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from problem with adhesive I have used this product for several years, but for the last couple of months, the adhesive pulls loose from the pad. A very unpleasant experience. Have you changed the adhesive?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from New Design is Very Disappointing The old design was very dependable. I never needed to worry about embarrassing mishaps. However, the new design is not reliable. The pads leak on the sides and do not seem as absorbent. I worry about having accidents and need to change pads more often.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST ! I have tried all others . I have the added inconvenience of colitis AND a leaky bladder ! Poise has saved me from terrible embarrassment on many occasions ! I will never use anything else !

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Contour pads I had been using the original pads before they were restyled into contour pads. I find the contour shape does not allow the urine to move as easily as the previous style. Now the pads leak in front while the back of the pad remains dry.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I still hate the new contour pads! The contour pads are not as absorbent as the old pads were and I don't feel protected any more. I used to use the moderate size, long. I even tried switching to the maximum size, long but I still don't find them protective enough. I wish you would go back to the old design. I shouldn't have to go to the ultimate size because my leakage is only occasional but I need to feel I can depend on the pads to work when it does occur.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best! This pad widens in the back and is GREAT protection at night.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wrong size packaging I have used Poise for over 7 years and never had a problem with the size of the pads until the past 4 purchases. Long 5 was the perfect fit for me. Now it seems that Long 5 is about 2.5 3 inches shorter. Was there a packaging malfunction? I'm looking the guidelines on this site and it looks like something may have gone wrong.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pad is not absorbant What a coincidence to see all the poor reviews of your pads. I too have been using them and recently switched from long to regular. They are not absorbent at all though longer ones were.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Allergic now Something has changed I used to recommend these but lately they make me itch. I have lots of allergy but I suspect it might be the deodorant suppressant.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from If it ain’t broke don’t fix it!!! It’s 2am and I’m writing this review as well as reading reviews because once again I had a problem with the pad not absorbing!! And to say I’m not a happy camper, along with many others, would be an understatement!! I loved the ones before the change!! Never, ever, had this problem!! I have bought your product for as long as I’ve needed to wear pads for this “ problem” I buy big boxes at Sam’s, but I will be looking for another product to buy going forward! Why would you do this and risk losing so many costumers? Until you bring the “older version” back I won’t be buying anymore of your product!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Maximum failure I've used Poise for over 10 years. I buy the maximum #5 regular length. The last purchase seems to be the moderate instead of maximum. Worthless! Have used the ultrathin type but even maximum are extremely thin and don't hold sufficiently.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poise, a company that ignores poor reviews Poise has many negative reviews about Contour Fit, published here. A sort by "most recent" proves the message has been delivered multiple times by multiple customers, and the company responds frequently with the statement: "It was not our intent to upset loyal customers..." followed by offers of even more ill-fitting products to try. How about removing Contour Fit from store shelves, and ceasing production, because the product allows odour and leaks. People liked your former products without Contour Fit. Re-release "Poise Classic" now please.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from contour fit leak in the midcle contour fit, which is now the only fit Poise makes, seem to be designed by someone who has never used a pad. They are now narrow in the middle and leak on the sides. They are thick in the front and back where I don't need protection. Please bring back the old pads, which were great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Smell is terrible The smell is terrible. It irritates my skin & respitory allergies. Why would anyone want to advertise that they are using a pad by putting a scent into it? It doesn't seem to work as well. After several years of using Poise, i have to find a different brand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from New Poise pads I agree with reviews! I hate these pads and I want the old ones back!!!!!! PLEASE!!!!! It isn’t the Poise product that I have grown to love. I totally disagree with “leak proof sides”. I hate to change brands but will have to.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Please Bring Back the "Old" Version I have been a daily user of the maximum (5) absorbency long pads for several years, and have preferred them to Tena and Always ( which should be called "Never"). I buy them at BJ's or Sams Club, so I am purchasing a large quantity each time. Ever since the switch to the hourglass shape with the bluish plastic, I have noticed that the pads are nowhere as absorbent as they used to be . It makes me feel that the company is cutting production costs but with the efficiency diminished as well. I HATE the new version. I never had a leakage problem with the old version, but now have had several unpleasant episodes. I am hesitant to buy any more of the pads because I can't rely on them to perform like the former version. Please bring back the older version!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not pleased I have been a loyal customer for years. My mother in law used them and was very satisfied but not so much now. I am actually thinking of changing products. I need comfort and protection and recently I am getting neither.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from New Contour Fit is Awful The recent changes to the maximum absorbency pads are dreadful, allowing significantly more leakage than the previous version, which was virtually leak-free for me. Another unappealing feature of the new version is it has less odour protection. And the purple/mauve colour is a silly, unattractive marketing gimmick. I prefer the previous white colour, which suggested cleanliness, and never smelled. I shared this feedback by email with Poise immediately after trying the "new improved" product, and I received an email from a Kimberly-Clark representative extolling all the virtues of the new product, while ignoring the problems. Trust me, I've tried the product, and the new version has caused me to switch brands, and I won't return to Poise, unless the Poise sees the wisdom of restoring its previous product. Poise should respect the experience of their loyal customers - who care enough to tell the company about the shortcomings of the new product - more than the product developers who came up with a faulty design.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 0riginal size best Since you changed size ,have been having leakage from the sides. Been using poise for more than 20 yrs.please go back t o original!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from These did not need fixing, terrible redesign. I've bought Poise pads for years, and have been happy with them. This new redesign makes them uncomfortable to wear. I've developed irritation from them. The gathers are sharp. They don't last nearly as long as the previous design, and have to be changed much more often. I'm forced to go with another brand. Sadly I bought this new batch from Sam's Club and I have more than have of that multi-pack left. I don't want to even give them away, as I don't want another woman to experience the same discomfort I did.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Way too big! These things are humongous! What bowlegged humans were these made for?! Curved to fit without any bunching? Are you kidding me? It's ridiculously wide. I'm not a particularly small person but I can't possibly use this. I previously purchased a generic version of these which fits so much better and are 1/3 the price. Now I'm stuck with a giant package of these. Wonder if I can cut them down to fit properly?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NEW DESIGN Just purchased a package of Poise pads and hate the new design. They do not work nearly as well as the old design. Very disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless I have used Poise fot several years and weathered multiple “improvements.” Over time the pads have gone from great to good to good enough to the recent version that is useless and not worth buying. It is difficult to be incontinent but Poise used to make it manageable. Not any more. I seriously doubt the conture pads were ever tested on women who actually need pads. And the few positive reviews do not sound authentic. Please listen to your customers and go back to manufacturing a useful product. I would like a long, soft, white ABSORBENT pad. I am 60 years old, not six, and don’t need a purple, blue and pink extravaganza in my underwear. Just a pad that does what I need it to do: help me manage my incontinence.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Stay with what works Not happy! I Ordered 2 packages of 48 "contour fit, #5. Absolutely awful pads. I usually get poise Original design #4 which work great. Went with Contour Fit #5. - I read many bad reviews on Contour Fit but found a good price & figured they might work if I order #5. Well, the pads bunch up in the middle and I feel like I'm sitting on a hump and pad is uncomfortable!!! Plus, the new shape makes for material that doesn't go far enough out on sides of pad to protect and what I really don't understand is they are not as absorbent (how does that work?) Honestly, I normally use one (1) original design #4 pad all day but went thru three (3) of these Contour things. Since I ordered thru mail its too much trouble to return at least the unopened pack. I say, if in doubt, stay with what you know works! Who designs and makes these changes??? They obviously don't try stuff out on people that actually use the products!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dont like The old pad were much better for me. I always get wet pants from the new design
