Start your collection with a variety of adjustable absorbency Pads & Inserts in our short and medium lengths. Wear the shorter pads during the day and switch to the longer ones for overnight, or for a little extra coverage on heavier days.Includes:
|Length||8" and 10"|
|Features||Adjustable Absorbency, Leakproof, Natural Fibres, Organic Fibres|
|Absorbency||Light, Moderate, Heavy|
|Construction and Performance||
Insert: 2 layers of 100% cotton fleece.
Lunapads will last upwards of 5 years with recommended usage and care.
|Wash and Care||
Lunapads 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 heavily saturated. Do not soak for longer than 24 hours.
We recommend natural cleaning products such as Nellie’s All Natural Laundry Soda for regular cleaning, and Buncha Farmers Stain Remover to perk up stained Lunapads. Heavily stained Lunapads may also benefit from occasional machine wash and dry in hot settings or air drying in direct sunlight.
Please avoid the use of chlorine bleach or fabric softeners to clean Lunapads, as this will decrease the performance of the products and is harmful to the environment.
Allow for a 5-10% rate of shrinkage after washing.
|How to Use||
Wrap the Pad around the gusset of your underwear and close the snap to secure. The fleece panel should be facing up, towards your body, as this is the most absorbent part of the pad. Incorrect placement may result reduced comfort and performance of the Pad.
Inserts can be added as desired by inserting the ends under the ric-rac bands on the Pad. Multiple Inserts may be used for increased absorbency. Pads can be refreshed as desired by removing and replacing the Insert(s). Please note that Inserts cannot be worn without a Pad.

- Six years and countingReview by Hannah
Occasionally there are leaks to the underwear if I don't put in one of the inserts, but no more so than disposables and the wings keep it from going all the way through. The only downside is that they sometimes bunch or slip to one side, but again, I've had the same issue with disposables and at least with cloth it's still absorbent. (Posted on 3/27/2016)
- Amazing.Review by Cait
- Happy, period.Review by Meg
At first, I doubled up the liners because I was afraid of leakage, but I really didn't need to because one was sufficient. The maxi pads were great for my first 3 days and when the flow lightened I used the smaller ones. I had no problems using them at work--I just put a wet bag I had from cloth diapering in my purse along with a couple extra liners and I was set. The liners are a lot more absorbent than disposables, so it appears that the flow is less than normal. I'm very happy with my purchase! (Posted on 8/21/2015)
- First lunapadsReview by Camille
Now I have enough pads to safely get me through a cycle :)
Lunapads work, they're eco friendly, super comfortable and will save me money in the longer run. I'd recommend them to anyone. Caring for them rapidly becomes second nature. And I'm in a much better mood when I get my period :) I love Lunapads (Posted on 4/14/2012)

- Why was I not using lunapads years ago?Review by Jennifer
Lunapads are soft, comfortable, and fun! My eco-conscious feels better when I use lunapads. (Posted on 10/30/2011)
- Great Product!Review by Caitlin
I really do. I was first turned onto them by this cute pro-women pro-eco-friendly store up the street from me and bought the starter pack in just plain ol' cotton. What can I say? THEY'RE GREAT. The pads are absorbent, they fit my panties well, and I love how in tune with my body I feel when I wear them! The ONLY down sides are that sometimes it feels like you're wearing a diaper, so I generally leave them for home, and they're kind of on the pricey side, which leave women living on their own with a tight budget (like myself) dying for more but unable to get them.

- Great way to start!Review by kj
I wanted to start using cloth pads to be more green. I thought it was going to be a sacrifice to give up my disposables but it has been completely the opposite for me. I'm also a college student and I thought it might be too hard to deal with while at school but it's not. I just take them in the shower with me and wash them out.

- Everything I hoped they would be and more!Review by Johannah
I have had these pads for a year now and have since bought two of these starter kits and one extra of both the mini and maxi pad (I wanted the new fabrics too!). All together I can get through my period without having to do laundry, although some periods are longer than others, so I have to do some washing.
I received my pads the summer before going into my senior year of college, so I had the summer to figure out rinsing, washing, and drying in a discrete way. At school I lived with two other girls, one of whom knew I used Lunapads and the other did not, since I wasn't quite sure how she would take it. It wasn't until half way through the year when I bought my second kit that I told my roommate I used them! I rinsed my pads in a one person bathroom at the sink (as opposed to the community-style bathroom) and hung them in my closet using pant hangers before I threw them into my regular load of laundry. There was never any smell and nobody ever saw them if I didn't want them to. I had also purchased a laundry bag so that I could bring my pads from the laundry room to my room to dry in my closet.
This is a great product that I love, works like it says it will, is stylish, and eco-friendly! :) (Posted on 7/17/2011)
- Poor qualityReview by puddinz
- No more wondering or worrying "do I have pads at home?"Review by Susan E.
I vary the combo at whim but I'll detail the most common in case it might help another lunagal with average flow. My first day is light so I can get away with using a mini pad with a regular liner throughout the day and sleeping with a maxi pad with a winged liner, just in case. I used to be a tampon gal because I hate messes so by day 2 I turn to the DivaCup for reinforcement - I use the second mini pad and a liner for back-up and empty out the cup every 4 hours; this I use day and night, I've found if I don't I soak through and stain. Day 3 I toss the DivaCup and go with the second maxi pad and a regular liner during the day and winged liner at night if I'm going to have a mellow day, if my day is going to be hectic I stick with the 2nd day combo previously mentioned during the day and the night 3 setup to sleep in. Day 4 is moot so I can pretty much go with nothing or a pantyliner. Day 5 is my flush day so I can go with either a mini pad with no liner or a pantyliner. I hope this gives you an idea of how much these pads can actually hold and how comfortable they truly are. I read some mention of bunching, my experience is they do bunch up sometimes (on hectic days for me) but it is hardly noticeable as it isn't as uncomfortable as when disposables bunch up and in variation: when luna pads bunch up they're absorbency is not affected (as stated by another reviewer), not true with disposables. For me, this is DEFINITELY the best way to have a great period. (Posted on 6/14/2011)
- Why I'll never go back to disposablesReview by Allya
This was the perfect introduction to lunapads for someone with a light-medium flow.

- Breathable ComfortReview by fishpelt
The only complaint that I have is that the liners do shrink up when washed/handwashed, which is to be expected with 100% cotton. My only suggestion is that they be made a 1/2 or 3/4 inch longer to allow for shrinkage. Other than that, I am 100% happy and telling all of my friends! (Posted on 2/6/2011)

- Perfect Intro into Cloth PadsReview by Jessica W
I use the larger pads and liners during the first couple of day during my cycle then the smaller ones when my flow gets lighter. The pads don't bunch up and get all uncomfortable like the disposable ones do, and you never run out - just do a load of laundry and you're good.
I love all the fabric choices too, they are so cute and soft it really makes that time of the month much less of a hassle. I will be buying more Lunapads in the future for my postpartum needs. (Posted on 10/22/2010)
- Very satisfiedReview by Rebecca
As for the pads, I was so excited when they came in. I almost wanted my cycle to start -- which is very abnormal for me!
The pads are very comfortable, and you use them just about like disposable ones. The small pad that I bought to put in my purse worked wonderfully; it kept me covered until I was able to get home and put on a bigger one.
I have very light flow, so I didn't even use this whole kit during my cycle, but the options did work well for my needs. I found that I could use one pad for a day and a night, just changing the liner.
They did bunch up a little bit, but I wonder if it's just because my underwear has a wide crotch. At any rate, it didn't affect their coverage. The ones with wings did bunch up more, so I probably wouldn't purchase any more of those.
I did soak them each time I changed, and renewed the water every morning and night. They were not terribly stained when they came out of the washer. I hung them up to dry, instead of putting them in the dryer.
Overall, I am very pleased with this product! It is so much nicer than rustling around in disposable pads, feeling like you're wearing a diaper and hoping that no one notices the stale smell around you. The result is very much worth the investment. (Posted on 10/22/2010)
