    Basic or Wing Style
    Use with: Maxi PadLunapanties

    Set of 2 Maxi Basic or Maxi Wing Inserts. Watch Video
    Inserts enhance the absorbency of Pads and Lunapanties to meet your particular needs, and will last approximately as long per use as a comparably-sized disposable pad or tampon. A single 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 4 at a time for very heavy flow) to help prevent leaks.

    Maxi Basic Inserts are approx. 10" (25cm) long and 2.5" (6cm) wide
    Maxi Wing Inserts are approx. 10" (25cm) long and 5.5" (14cm) wide across the wings.

    Inserts are made from 2 layers of 100% cotton fleece with serged edges.

    Inserts enhance the absorbency of Lunapads and Lunapanties to meet your particular needs. Lunapads will last approximately as long (per use) as a comparably-sized disposable pad or tampon. Additional mindfulness may be advisable, however, as Lunapads are made with natural, more porous fibers and do not contain added chemicals or absorbing agents. Given this, Lunapads users need to be mindful of changing the Insert as frequently as their flow dictates in order to prevent soaking through the Pad. Frequent changing of the Inserts significantly enhances the comfort and performance of the Pad.

    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 the pads are not heavily saturated. Please note that if pads are being soaked, soaking water must be changed daily.

    We recommend Nellie’s Natural Laundry Soda for regular cleaning, and Buncha Farmers Stain Remover to perk up stained pads. Heavily stained liners may also occasionally benefit from machine wash and dry in hot settings.

    Please avoid the use of chlorine bleach or fabric softeners.

    Inserts can be added as desired by inserting the ends under the ric-rac bands on a Pad. Wing Inserts rest comfortably against the inner thigh, providing added lateral (side-to-side) protection. Multiple Inserts may be inserted for increased absorbency. Pads can be refreshed throughout the day or night as desired by removing and replacing the Inserts. Please note that Inserts are not intended to be worn without a Pad.

    1. Ok, but some flaws Review by Jessi

      I absolutely love love love the insert that I got with my maxi pad. But the problem is that these ones are NOT the same. They are a smidge longer and a smidge narrower. Which doesn't sound bad but it kind of is. They bunch up a little bit more and they are a little harder to put in because they are longer and bunch up more. I don't really mind them being narrower but it's just a little annoying that they are not the same as the liners you get with your pad. (Posted on 8/7/12)

    2. No more leaks, really? Review by Jen

      No matter what kind of disposable pad I wore, I would ALWAYS leak. Out the side, the back, the front. Even when I was just sitting down or when my flow was light! I tried pads with wings, different sizes and brands but nothing helped.

      When I first tried lunapads, I assumed the same thing would happen. But I was shocked: No more blood on my underwear or pants! The wing liners are a godsend! Nothing has EVER worked this well! I can wear khaki when i'm on my period! Thank you lunapads! (Posted on 9/3/11)

    3. Better than disposables Review by Wings

      I always used to wear wings in disposables, so I ordered the wings for the Lunapads. I used them for the first time last cycle and they rocked! In my opinion, they worked better than disposables. Take that, Always! (Posted on 6/2/11)

    4. Bicycling back-up Review by Liz

      One thing I have always struggled with was having a back-up while riding my bicycle. (Those of you in the know will realize that cyclist don't have underwear under their shorts), so there is nothing to attach a pad to. On a recent ride, I tucked a liner into my shorts in order to protect the chamois. The experiment worked. The liner barely shifted during my ride. The only downside... Being cotton, it did soak up sweat in a somewhat unpleasant fashion. (Posted on 5/1/11)
