Do they stay in place? Are they thin enough that they can not be seen? Where can I get them? Are they expensive?
So sorry mighty-mama to get off subject a bit......
I am happy to share. There are several threads in 'natural family living' and 'natural home and body'. 'Mama cloth' or 'cloth pads' would be key search words. I went to pull up some and found so many that I'll let you look around.
I like wings that snap under your panties, they then basically stay in place, snug panties help. Fleece, flannel, and wool are fibers I like, maybe a layer of pul for heavy times.
They are thin enough, think a couple layers of flannel or 1 flannel and 1 fleece, or wool or.... Longer, rather than thicker would be more visible IMO
There are several patterns available or you could make your own pattern from a pad you like the fit of. Several on-line diaper companies sell them and several WAHM moms here at MDC do also. There are reviews and threads comparing them. The initial outlay is not cheap ($3 a pad or more) but they last forever. You might luck out and find a co-op to get some (though this is a slower route).
There are literally dozens of options and lots of discussion about them all.
Keep asking, we can get this thread totally hijacked.
