I used the disposable ones a long time ago and they worked fine, but those ones that were linked to by fatoldladyinpjs look really interesting! Since it sounds like you want reusable they might be perfect.

I would NOT use knit or felted ones. They aren't absorbent enough and the fabric wouldn't be soft enough on tender skin.

ETA... I have not tried the felted ones. I was basing my answer on my own personal sensitivity which is sensitive like a baby's skin. YMMV

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

I agree about the knitted/felted ones. You would definitely want something cotton, soft, and absorbent. I didn't like the square or rectangle ones because they crinkle and are uncomfortable. Take a good look in the mirror with them on and see how they look in your shirt. I have professional photos with myself and my girl when she was a baby. I wore a semi-translucent gauze white blouse and nursing pads in the bra. I can see the nursing pads in the photos. I'm the only one that sees it in the photos, but still it's embarassing. See how you look before you go out in public. Will the pads have lines or is the shape visibly noticeable? If you can, you might want to wear a padded bra with them.
