Leaflet: . . . . because (Personal Products Company, 1967) for
Modess menstrual pads for mothers in hospitals right after childbirth,
women, and teenage girls

This leaflet, one of many Modess made to promote its products, connects to the decades-long Modess . . . . because ad campaign through its title but lacks the snazzy fashions of the magazine ads. Customers probably found them in the boxes of pads or near the Modess displays in stores.


I thank the former Tambrands, which made Tampax tampons, for donating this leaflet!

Below: Since I broke the larger version of the leaflet in half (bottom), right below you can see both sides of the whole 6 panels in a smaller version.
Each panel measures 2 3/4 x 4 1/4" (about 7.8 x 11.5 cm).
The far-right panel is the top page.
Below: The middle panel mentions the booklets How Shall I Tell My Daughter? and Growing up and liking it.
Among Modess's other offerings were "Educational Portfolio on Menstrual Hygiene" (1968), a teacher's kit for Modess sanitary napkins,
menstrual tam
pons and panties (mostly complete); and an earlier (1950s) complete kit from Modess. The company also tied
a sanitary napkin belt into the because campaign.
