HyPs Max

£20.00 +400pts

I don’t know who came up with the saying “less is more” but they were clearly never the proud owner of a uterus or damaged pelvic floor. Because when it comes to dealing with either of those things, you want the MOST protection.

Enter the HyPs Max.

16” long with 5 layers of absorbency, these new members of the HyPs family are taking the Lil Helper tendency of being a lil extra to a whole new level.

LENGTH: 16 inches

  1. Rinse off any blood/residue under running cold water.
  2. Place your HyPs in a wetbag, mesh laundry bag or bin until wash day.
  3. Machine wash with a commercially available detergent. Do not use bleach or fabric softeners. Don't scrub. Ideally wash them in a mesh bag for longevity!
  4. Hang dry, or tumble dry on low heat for a maximum of 20 minutes. Don't worry if there are some stains. The sun can do wonders for giving your HyPs a facelift.
  5. Have an ice cream or climb a mountain. You are a badass and the planet is a better place because of you.

Size Matters

A full 16” long, these babies offer the most coverage of all our HyPs products and should never leave you wanting more.

Layers of Greatness

Our HyPs Max have a whopping 5 layers of hidden bamboo terry inside. This is topped with our Stay-Dry material for quick absorption that spreads out moisture evenly and helps ensure that your pads will never stick to your sensitive bits.

Protect your white jeans

Not only are HyPs backed with a waterproof PUL fabric, made from recycled plastic materials, they also have waterproof wings to prevent moisture from going where it shouldn’t and to double the leak-proof protection.

Tired of waking up to a scene out of a b-level horror flick?

Wake up feeling fresh as a daisy.

The HyPs Max are perfect for mid incontinence, overnights or postpartum protection. Slim but with a buttload (very technical design term) of absorbency, these can handle more than they appear. Plus, for the postpartum days, they are gentle on your already all-too-sensitive bits. With our natural, stay-dry, no sticking materials, you can spare your already overworked vagina any additional agony.

Also, whether you’ve just had a babe or have particularly gnarly nights, our Lifesaver Mat may help keep your sheets from suffering the consequences.

Worried about the logistics of reusable pads?

We offer a whole system.

Because why create half a painting or build part of a bridge? Not only do we have 4 absorbencies of HyPs pads (check our Liner, Regular and Heavy) but we’ve also got you covered with all the accessories you need to make using them simple. Pair your HyPs with a travel case (Combo Bag), home storage (Dry/Wetbag) and a Mesh Bag for laundry.

But what about the laundry?

Don’t worry, these have super easy washing instructions.

Step 1: Rinse until water runs clear
Step 2: Throw them in your washing machine and eat some Haagen Daz to feel better while you wait.


Gone are the days of handwashing reusable pads like they’re delicate. 


Because you rinse them off, HyPs can be collected until laundry day and thrown in with your regular load with no fear of stains or ick getting on your other stuff.

A great fit, guaranteed.

The secret? Snazzy snaps.

Our snaps are snappy for a few reasons. First, two snaps are better than one and allow for a custom fit on any undergarments. Second, smaller, low-profile snaps are used to prevent any discomfort.

Hummm… anything else I’m forgetting?

Oooooh Prints!

The HyPs line prioritizes function over form. But there is no reason you can’t have your cake and eat it too. They come in a variety of amazing prints that were exclusively designed for our HyPs line and will (hopefully) leave you with a smile instead of a desire to burn down your entire subdivision and that little parkette that is overrun with weeds. They also come in some more neutral colours for those with a little more of thmat “less is more” sensibility that we have.

More coverage, more absorbency, and more protection all in a slim and comfy package that will leave you feeling comfy and confident.



We have a lot more to say about this stuff but our web designer believes there is such a thing as “too many” funny GIFs (pfft), so we put it on our blog instead.

Newbie Guide

There are 4 different sizes available in the hyps; a liner, regular, heavy and the new MAX! The liners and regulars both consist of 2 layers of absorbent bamboo terry. The liners are 8” long while the regulars are 10”. The heavy HyPs are great for overnight or heavy flows. The Heavy HyPs have a third layer of absorbent terry and are 12” long.
The HyPs Max are great for overnight and heavy flows, also an amazing option for anyone who is looking for more coverage coming in at 16” long.
The HyPs Max can help with coverage for light bladder leaks, but can’t hold the emptying of the bladder.
There are 2 snaps on the wings so that you can adjust the size to work for your particular undies!
There are a few things you can do. First try flipping the HyP around. Put the larger side towards the front and the smaller side towards the back. We also recommend wearing well fitted garments to keep the HyP snug to your body.
These fantastic pads consist of many different layers! The top is our amazing bamboo stay-dry liners, to help disperse liquid and keep you feeling dry. Followed by 5 layers of absorbent bamboo terry cloth and finishing the pads off with a layer of waterproof PUL to prevent any leaks from making it to your undergarments!

Space Dinos!!!

I have been considering switching to more eco-friendly menstrual products for a while but had reservations about the logistics. Luckily, Lil Helper is staffed with the best kind of nerds and the care guides squashed those worries pretty quickly. Every part of the ordering process was wonderful from the easy process of creating a bundle to the very delightful “while you’re waiting, here’s more info” email sent while the order was on the way. I typically only use pads at night because my skin is sensitive but these were so comfortable and absorbent I’ve already ordered more to use for the entirety of shark week. Menstruation is rough but these pads are wonderful and the prints are amazing. Space dinos may not make cramps disappear but they did bring a big smile to my face and that alone is worth at least 100 stars.

WOW! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review. Us nerds here at Lil Helper absolutely live for hearing that our systems work and make reusable options easier for folks! And a smile at the Espresso-saurus on one of our all time favorite prints... BONUS! Wishing you many smiles during your shark weeks ahead!

I should've switched sooner!

I've been a long time user of cups and have been hesitant of reusable pads for so long, but I have no clue why! I have been suffering at night dealing with the repercussions of not wearing any good protection and having to clean and wash everything every day.

These pads are a god send! Not too bulky that make feel like wearing a diaper, but I feel protected and no worries for my bedding. So far I've been only wearing them to bed as my overnight protection, but I am sold! I simply rinse it out in the morning, let it dry during the day, and then throw it into the laundry and use the next one on rotation. I love the fact that I am able to just chunk them into the washing machine.

Hi and thank you so much for taking the time to review our HyPs Heavy Reusable Menstrual Pads! We are thrilled that you love them and that they are helping you as an overnight solution - wishing you many leak free and restful nights ahead!

First time, but not the last!!!

I am still pretty new to the world of reusable period products, but already I am confident to say I have no need for any other brand!!! I got liners and pads both, and they're comfy and convenient and unlike the disposable versions I never even know they're there!! Would absolutely recommend to anyone and everyone - I am planning to order more this week since I've found them so great!! Keep up the good work, LH! (and maybe add some new designs soon! I wanna try to have no repeats haha)

Welcome to the world of reusables - and the strange yet super fun desire to build a custom stash with all your favorite prints haha! Thank you for giving Lil Helper a try, we are so thrilled you love your HyPs Liners :)

Low profile and comfy!

Love reusable pads, and these ones are great! So low profile, you barely know you're wearing one. I ADORE the designs as well!

Thank you so much for your review! We're thrilled to hear that you're loving our HyPs Liner. We designed it with comfort and discretion in mind, so we're glad that it's meeting your expectations. And we agree, the designs are a fun bonus! Thanks again for choosing Lil Helper.

Best pads ever!

I bought the trial package because I wanted to see whether cloth pads were for me. I have a really heavy flow, and my periods are always miserable, so I was really skeptical about using a cloth pad. But, these pads are really easy to use and super absorbent. These pads are so comfortable and hassle-free. I highly recommend. I will be buying more.

Thank you! We are so glad you were able to take advantage of our trial to try before you buy - it is so good to test a product before you invest in a whole system! Thank you as well for taking the time to leave a review - we wouldn't be here without folks like you!
