Not very similar to the name brand.

We believe the braided end of the Tampax Pearl tampon does a nice job of protecting against leaks. The up & up tampon does not have this, and an overnight leak occurred. Needless to say, this was frustrating. The applicators are fairly similar, but that's about it. If you like the discreet packaging of Pearl, as well as the absorbent braid, we recommend spending a few extra dollars to stick with the name brand.
Why can’t any of these store brands copy the leak guard braid? Looking for the holy grail at a discount
These are no where near as comfortable as the tampax pearls. They don’t have the anti leak wick either and leak easily
I’ve used Tampax since I was a girl, and tried up & up recently. I’ve had two allergic reactions to their tampons. Will never use again.
