Set of 2 Long Basic or Long Wing Inserts. Watch Video
Long Inserts enhance the absorbency of Lunapads Long Pads or Maia Lunapanties to meet your particular needs, and will last approximately as long per use as a comparably-sized disposable pad or tampon. A single Long Pad will last you through a full day of your cycle, provided that the Insert is changed before soaking through. Unlike Pantyliners, Inserts must be used in conjunction with a Pad or Lunapanty.
How many Inserts do I need?
You can expect to use 1 Pad or Lunapanty per day, changing your Inserts 1 - 6 times, depending on how light or heavy your periods are. When your Insert becomes saturated, replace with a fresh, dry Insert. Multiple Inserts may be added (up to 3 at a time for very heavy flow) to help prevent leaks.
Long Basic Inserts are approx. 12" (30cm) long and 2.5" (6cm) wide.
Long Wing Inserts are approx. 12" (30cm) long and 5.5" (14cm) wide across the wings.
|Construction and Performance||
|How to Use||
Inserts can be added as desired by inserting the ends under the bands on a Lunapad or Lunapanty. Wing Inserts rest comfortably against the inner thigh, providing added lateral protection. Multiple Inserts may be used for increased absorbency. Pads and Lunapanties can be refreshed throughout the day or night as desired by removing and replacing the Insert. Please note that Inserts cannot to be worn without a Pad.
|Wash and Care||
Inserts can be washed by hand or machine in any temperature with your regular detergent. Pre-soaking or rinsing in cold water prior to washing is recommended, but not always necessary, particularly if Inserts are not heavily saturated. Do not soak for longer than 24 hours.
We recommend Nellie’s Natural Laundry Soda for regular cleaning, and Buncha Farmers Stain Remover to perk up stained pads. Heavily stained Inserts may also occasionally benefit from machine wash and dry in hot settings.
Please avoid the use of chlorine bleach or fabric softeners.

- My Big Discovery... Review by Danielle
In their reply, they recommended trying one of these Long Inserts instead. I was skeptical because of the measurements (two inches shorter), but decided to try it. GREAT SUGGESTION!
Long Inserts fit perfectly - comfortable and flat - between the ric-rac bands of both my 2 Overnight Pads and 2 Long Pads... and I don't have to deal with all that extra fabric. Much better! Now, I have about 8 of these inserts to match and I de-stashed my Overnight Inserts.
Don't be afraid to mix and match to figure out what works for you...
