I like minky bc it doesn't stain. My favorite pads are Pianissimo because they are gorgeously made thus very comfy. I do not like serged. I do not care as much about colors and prints if they work well! I tend to use my favorites for comfort And then go to the pretties.
No worries about exposed fleece. Shape wise I like an hourglass and a generous one for night and pp.
