With the regular absorbency ones that I tried you can not even feel they are there. They have proven to be super absorbent and are easy to slide in and out. I have had a problem in the past by the U by Kotex Tampons that do not seem to come out of the applicator. I can not even begin to count how many I have just thrown away (not used) because of this.
I personally usually use Tampax Pearl but since these are just as good I will probably start switching off between which one is the cheapest (on sale or with a coupon).
