which TAMPON is SMALLERout of the 2 of these?

which of these tampons is better/smaller (for a small teen)

Tampax Pearl Lites (purple)

Playtex Slimfits

which applicator is smaller, which actual "tampon" is smaller, how they open up, which you prefer, or which you'd reccomend to a girl who needs a really small and easy to remove tampon...because ive tried the tampax "regular" and it hurt SOO bad to remove . im just really nervous because im going away to the beach with a friend's family and i am afraid im going to get my period...

thank you soooo much!!!!! i really appreciate it!!!!! :)

    the tampax pear lights (purple) are smaller. i used them when i first started my period. they were perfect to start out with. i still use tampax, but the yellow kind (regular) i hate playtex, they open up in a 360 (circle) and the tampax opens up sideways. the playtex feels like the bottom half is falling out. but the tampax always fits perfectly comfy.

    I like tampax pearl cuz the applicator makes them easy to slide in. Just dont take it out too soon because if it is really dry it will hurt more to remove
