Construction and Performance

Pad Base: 2 Layer, 100% cotton flannel base topped with an absorbent panel made of 2 layers of cotton fleece, and 1 layer of PUL to prevent soaking through. Nickel-free, Silver-plated brass single snap fastening.
Insert: 2 layers of 100% cotton fleece.

A single Pad will get you through an entire day of your cycle; just change your Insert as needed. Inserts will last approximately as long (per use) as a comparably-sized disposable pad or tampon. Unlike most disposable pads, Lunapads do not contain any added chemicals, gels, or super absorbent polymers. 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.

Lunapads will last upwards of 5 years with recommended usage and care. Many of our customers report they still own some Lunapads from 10 years ago!

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 pads. Heavily stained pads 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.

How to Use

Wrap the Pad around the gusset of your underwear and close the snap to secure. The absorbent fleece panel in the center of the pad should be facing up towards your body. Incorrect placement may result in reduced comfort and performance of the Pad.

Inserts can be added as desired by sliding 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 are not intended to be worn without a Pad.

Cover Miscarriage!Review by MamaMayor
After my pregnancy ended at 8+ weeks, I chose to miscarry naturally. These were perfect for days after the worse was over. They were able to be adjusted according to my activity and ability to change just by adding or taking away extra inserts. Not a drop on my bed or clothes! Thank you ladies! Truly an amazing alternative, and a workhorse at that. (Posted on 3/31/2016)
The longs are such a perfect length for average to heavy flow days and nights!Review by Rachelle
I love long Lunapads! I'm an average sized woman, and the longs give me just that bit of added length that I prefer for my heavy days, and average to heavy flow nights.

I first purchased Lunapads a year ago and have been loving them ever since so I went ahead and ordered a few more so that now I'll have enough for my whole cycle before having to wash. One thing I really love about them is their cotton fleece tops. Something unique to Lunapads. Besides being very soft, the fleece absorbs my flow much quicker than some other cloth pads I've tried and definitely way quicker than disposable pads. This means less worry about leaking. Nothing seems to escape this fleece. Really! Did I mention how much I love Lunapads? Lol I introduced my 14yo daughter to cloth pads 11 months ago as well when she started menstruating. She even uses them at school and sleepovers. No big deal at all! She also appreciates that there is less odor, and leaking then with disposables and shares with her friends just how great they are!

Oh, and for those of you who are worried about laundering, I'll share my easy method that I've adopted...I place my used Lunapads in a dry "wetbag" throughout my cycle. I only fold them in half. I prefer to leave the bag open as it's important to let the air circulate and help everything to dry out. I also find there is less odor this way. At the end of my cycle, I simply dump my pads into the washing machine, set it for a small load. Then fill with warm water, detergent, and a scoop of oxyclean. I pause my machine after they've agitated for a few minutes and let them soak for a while, preferably overnight. In the morning, I let the cycle finish, and then do an extra rinse. I then throw them in the dryer on med-low. That's it! Beautifully clean, stain free lunapads, ready for my next cycle. ;) (Posted on 3/18/2016)
The Best of the BestReview by Phoebe
I've tried a lot of different cloth pads from many companies but I have to give it to the Luna Pad company, they mastered the art of cloth pads. They fit perfect and never shift on my panties. They are also very soft and comfortable. And my personal favorite is the insert; The insert not only provides extra absorbency but it also is SUPER easy to replace unlike many other products that I've used. (Posted on 3/7/2016)
Perfect for Overnights! Review by Danielle
I have a moderate flow and use Lunapads Maxi - 10 inch - for day time. For sleeping, I prefer more coverage in order to avoid leaks from (tmi) dripping toward the front or back. I already had two of the 14-inch Overnight size, but I just added two of these 12-inch Long Pads to my stash as well (Cabin Fever print, with 6 basic inserts). I reach for them on those "in between" nights when I want the extra length but my flow isn't at its heaviest. They're perfect ... very consistent with the great quality I always expect from Lunapads... I'm never disappointed! (Posted on 6/14/2015)
Great for Plus Size BabesReview by Anna
I'm a size 20/22 and these are the ideal length for me. I have a light period so I tried a smaller pad for my first order but it was too short for my body. This pad is great, though - no more leaks onto the back (or front) of my underwear. If you have a big, bodacious bod like mine, I would definitely recommend forgoing the minis and teeny-tinys for this style instead. I'm never using trashy disposables again! (Posted on 4/12/2015)
An awesome overnight pad!Review by Tor
I bought one of these pads a few months ago to try out, and I loved it so much that I just bought another. I can't believe how good it is. I used to use disposable overnight pads to sleep in, and they would leak ALL the time. I haven't had a single leak since switching to Lunapads! This is one of the best purchases I've ever made.
Seriously, try these!!!! (Posted on 6/10/2014)
I personally prefer the long ones!Review by Cristina
I just went through my first period with the Lunapads and I am never going back! This is by far the best solution available for me (DivaCup didn't work for me, and of course disposables are too gross). I got the heavy flow starter kit thinking I'd be mainly using the maxi pads, and only be using these long ones for overnight, but I found that I loved the long ones the most, perhaps because I felt much more secure because there is more "space" to drop blood (even the wings on the winged inserts are more spacious). Also, the rickrack is spread out further which eliminates the mild irritation/rubbing I was getting from it with the maxi pad; this also decreases the chance of staining the rickrack with blood. I'll keep the smaller ones around if I need them (i.e. need to wear tight clothes for whatever reason) but these will be my go-to everyday pads... and they'll also be perfect for when I am postpartum in the future ;) (Posted on 4/1/2014)
A Great Birthday Present!Review by Lauren
My family asked what I wanted for my birthday, and I sent them my Lunapads wishlist! Well, I got lucky and received one of these!
It's been perfect to use for that first night when the flow is a bit heavier so I can rest easy knowing I'm covered!
I got a pair of winged inserts to go with it, and sometimes wear all 3 to bed, if I'm hoping to sleep in the next morning.

Thanks for being awesome Lunagals! (Posted on 8/24/2013)
Great for overnight and heavy daysReview by ay
I love these for the first couple of days of my period, when the flow is heavier. And love them for wearing overnight to provide more coverage. They are definitely a bit bulky just because they're long, so I don't love wearing them out - but I have before. Just need to choose my clothing a little more carefully. These are an essential part of my lunapad collection! (Posted on 3/6/2013)
Better than I could have expectedReview by Jules
I love these, they are so absorbent, and they don't -itch- and feel bulky like the disposable pads I've always used. So great for sleeping and heavy days. I was a little worried about the ick factor, but it really isn't bad at all. -Wearing- it is -way- less icky than disposable. As for cleanup, I only bought one to try, and I rinse it out before tossing them in the wash, and no problem. Getting a couple more so I don't have to use anything else. I'll probably get some pantyliners too. Those wouldn't strictly be necessary, since disposable liners don't really have the same itchiness and general discomfort you get with the disposable heavy flow pads, but hey, might as well be more comfortable all the time. (Posted on 9/3/2012)
Ok for at homeReview by Nicole
Docked a star because the label isn't needed. Three stars because of the cleaning and it takes a lot of water. I think the amount of water needed to clean pads is a down side. We have to cut back on water use during water restrictions. I'll use disposables in those times.

Tip = don't unpick the label. It makes the holder come off. The label goes on the back which I didn't realise. I just stitched it back together by hand. It would be better if there were no label.

I'm was a skeptic and am surprised by the absorbency of cloth pads. They are good. In that respect it's better than disposables. Doesn't change the need for nurophen tablets (I read cloth could make people feel better, not for everyone).

I'll use these at home only, great for at night, but it's still a bit too bulky and not very comfy to walk with. The shorter length ones are better for during the day. (Posted on 8/24/2012)
Wish ListReview by Cindy Caro
I would love to try these products. If I won the gift card I think I would purchase a few sets of these. (Posted on 4/29/2012)
I'm addicted to my pads!Review by Happy Lady
A number of years ago I found the site and I asked my hubby if it was a good idea for me to get some pads. I ended up getting some for me and some for a friend of mine. I used mine for MONTHS. I moved and I couldn't find them, so I was forced to buy the bad pads at the store. Last month I found a few of my pads and finally got to use them. I bleed very heavy and with the store pads it didn't matter if I lined my panties with three of them, I would bleed EVERYWHERE. When I started using my Lunapads again, NO LEAKS and NO MESS! I'm saving money by reusing these great pads. I will never go back to the store for then EVER! In fact, I'm thinking about getting more. I don't even see the type I got years ago on here.. I got a bunch of pads, liners and a Lunablanket. I'm telling all my girlfriends about Lunapads!! (Posted on 4/12/2012)
love themReview by Laura D
These are great to wear. If you've had a problem with "diaper rash" or heat rash from wearing disposable pads in the summer, then you will love these even more. They keep you dry and clean without the extra heat rash problem. We just had an exceptionally hot summer, and these didn't bother me a bit.

Nicely absorbent for days when I didn't feel like wearing the Diva cup. (Posted on 9/14/2011)
Perfect for me!Review by Skywalker
I have an allergy to disposable pads and always had to deal with a terrible rash that would take all month to heal...just in time for my next period. Lunapads have solved that problem, and surprisingly I haven't had any leaks on my underwear since starting to use them either!

They also provided me so much comfort during a miscarriage, when I bled through a hospital pad in 15 minutes, I could wear these long pads for more like an hour and with much more comfort, allowing me to relax and sleep. It made the tough situation so much more manageable, and I'm very very grateful to have had them. (Posted on 4/30/2011)
an answer to prayerReview by Melody
I am so HAPPY with my pads I really can not say how thankful I am. I have an allergy to disposable pads and break out in a rash within 2 hours of wearing one; if I am forced to wear them throughout my period I will have scabs from the rash. Until 6 years ago I thought everyone went through this and it was hell, now that I have luna pads I am able to enjoy the blessing and self reflection that comes with my period. (Posted on 4/13/2011)
Life-ChangingReview by Janet
These are perfect! These were the very first luna pads I tried back in July 2010 and I fell in love. They provide complete coverage so you can be confident that you won't have any marks on your clothing when the day is done. Luna pads changed my life, I'll never go back to disposables! (Posted on 3/9/2011)
Ridiculously comfortableReview by Stephanie
I'm petite, but I need a LOT of coverage at night. I sometimes have to slide the liner back to make the Long Pad a little longer and prevent leaks, which is the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars. I should probably just try the Heavy Pad. Anyhow, the fabric is so comfortable I sort of hate taking them off in the morning. Seriously! (Posted on 2/4/2011)
LOVE these for postpartum and heavy periods!Review by Annalise
These were perfect for postpartum during the day! I love the extra length and comfort and am so glad I had these!! (Posted on 2/4/2011)
Amazing!Review by Kathleen
These are perfect for my heaviest days! I have really heavy and long periods, and I've tried everything including other cloth pads, but these are the best. I love being able to change just the liner and not the whole pad. They don't look like they hold as much as they do. It's kind of incredible when I wash out a liner to see how much it was actually holding! They work really well, and don't irritate my skin like disposables do. (Posted on 12/31/2010)

Lunapads How-to Guide

Reusable menstrual products are eco-friendly, money-saving, healthy alternatives to disposable pads and tampons. Lunapads will last well over 5 years with recommended use and care! While individual use may vary, we estimate that a single Lunapad replaces 120 disposable pads or tampons.

A Conversation about The DivaCup

There are lots of reasons to switch from tampons to The DivaCup; convenience, comfort, your health, the environment, financial savings & more. This first episode in our new video series shares the personal accounts of a group of DivaCup users, and explores what motivated each woman to try this innovative menstrual solution.

Why Switch to Lunapads?

Roughly 20 billion pads, tampons and applicators are sent to North American landfills annually. Each menstruating person in North America will throw away an estimated 16,800 disposable pads or tampons in their lifetime; products that require hundreds of years to biodegrade. Imagine the difference we could make if we chose to ditch the disposables.
