The Performa Maxi is a high performance washable pad that feels just like your most comfortable pair of cotton underwear. They are 10” (25.5cm) long and approximately 3” (7.6cm) wide when fastened.

Using 2 layers of super-absorbent microfiber, hidden between 2 layers of soft cotton jersey, Performa Lunapads were made to hold your heaviest menstrual flow and stop light bladder leaks in their tracks. The leakproof backing keeps everything off your clothes, while the wicking cotton top layer keeps you comfortable and dry.

Note: Inserts are not compatible with Performa Lunapads. For adjustable protection, see our classic Pad & Insert Sets.

Construction and Performance

Backing: PUL laminated 95% cotton 5% spandex jersey
Padding: microfiber
Closure: poly-resin snap

Performa Lunapads are suitable for moderate to heavy menstrual flow and light to moderate bladder leaks. Each pad will last approximately as long (per use) as a comparably sized disposable pad. Our testing has shown that the Performa Maxi will hold approximately 9-12 teaspoons of fluid.

Wash and Care

Performa 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 BunchaFarmers Stain Remover to perk up stained pads.

How to Use Place the pad in your underwear with the tag facing down/away from you and close the snap to secure. Change pad throughout the day as necessary.

Magnificent ImprovmentReview by Natalie
I have used Lunapads for 6 years now and loved the change over. As my body changed and I had some heavier cycles, however, a pad with 4 liners was only getting me through about 4 hours on my one very heavy day. Admittedly, it was pretty bulky. I tried the new Performa maxi last month and this MUCH THINNER pad got me through 4 hours. What a difference!--it was dryer, thinner and did wash up well with soaking as recommended above. Admittedly, when I went back to my quadruple stack, it seemed my flow was lighter that month, but I am excited to use it again and not afraid to wear it out now. Can't wait to keep trying it and watching sales for more of these. Thank you! (Posted on 9/27/2017)
Most comfortable period ever!Review by Lakin
I have used many different feminine products including disposable pads and tampons as well as a menstrual cup. The Lunapads Performa Maxi has been my favorite product of all. I never felt wet and never got bunched up. I need to buy more! (Posted on 9/16/2017)
Add a second snap on long ones!Review by Lex
These are great! They really do absorb, and I have a scary heavy cycle. Buuuut, I'm a short, small person and even people that aren't small may have this concern:
The long ones slip sideways and I have to CONSTANTLY excuse myself to adjust them! A second snap on the maxi long pads would be such a fantastic thing. (Posted on 9/15/2017)
WowReview by MImie075
Just wow! Really comfortable and very effective. (Posted on 8/24/2017)
great productReview by ctlb
Very comfortable, easy to use. Not bulky, you can't even see that you are wearing it. It also fold up nicely for you to store it, or for when it is dirty.
I would say it is my best pad by far!!
Stays in place in my underwear. (Posted on 8/19/2017)
So comfortableReview by Happy
I've been using these for several months now and am very glad I made the switch. The cotton feel is delightful - no longer do I feel the itching and chafing of disposable pads. (Posted on 6/15/2017)
The perfect reusable padReview by Dana
I am so happy I finally purchased these. I have endometriosis and using a menstrual cup was painful for me. I hated the idea of how much trash I was making with disposables and found these. I don't have to change them as often as I did my disposables (I was using always infinity) and there is no plasticy feel and no leaks. I have recommended these to my mom and grandma for bladder leaks too. Super impressed and wish I could afford to buy more. (Posted on 12/30/2016)
Love the black!Review by Jamie
As someone with endo, I'm a very harsh review. I expect a lot from a product that is described as 'Performa' with 'moisture management' and as being 'high-performance'. This one did not disappoint! As a very heavy bleeder, I had to change mine out sooner than most would but it kept me leak-free throughout the day. I'm still getting used to reusables but I did have to go to the bathroom a few times to check because I felt wet. I'm going to cut this pad some slack there because I am such a heavy bleeder and no pad has every been able to really wick fast enough when there's a sudden gush. I really like the solid black too, I don't worry about stains! One small complaint would be the Lunapads tag. They're pretty big and in the way. (Posted on 8/7/2016)
Surprisingly absorbent!Review by Stephanie
Performas are really good at keeping me feeling dry for longer. They can absorb a surprising amount. I almost always use performa super for overnight, and these are good for daytime if you might not be able to change your pad for a while. (Posted on 7/20/2016)
Really like these...Review by HJ
I had previously mostly quit using my lunapads as they were too hot and I didn't like constantly changing the inserts. When I saw these, I had to try them and they work wonders. I have very heavy bleeding for 24-48 hours and these last as long as the disposable always with foam but I feel much more dry with these performa pads. Way to go Lunapads for finding such a winner. The super works great at night and the maxi's actually hold more than you'd expect and wash up well. (Posted on 2/18/2016)
Very comfy, but not as absorbant as the original lunasReview by Wendy
I like the comfort of the performa, but have found it doesn't absorb enough on my heavy days, leading to leaks. The original lunapads have much more capacity for absorption, by adding extra layers. It's great for a light flow day though. I have used it through a few cycles, and had a few more issues getting it clean, perhaps due to the different fabric it is made of. The top fabric is very soft and smooth, very comfortable! (Posted on 12/12/2015)
I adore these padsReview by Rachel
As someone that bleeds heavily right in the middle of my pads - these Performa pads are OUTSTANDING. It lasts all day - something very important, and leak-proof, what more could I ask for? (Posted on 11/2/2015)
i love this pad!Review by Anne Lynette
I love this product! Arrived yesterday--as did my period! Washed it and tried today. Softer, cooler, more absorbent. I can't say enough about how great this is. So light and thin, and feels bone dry. The backing is very nice. Not stiff or slippery. Stays in place nicely. I don't like the tiny metal snaps so i love that this has plastic. Washed very nicely straight from the package, but I haven't washed it since using it. I would recommend this to anyone. A little wider than the old school Lunapad, but much less bulky. I'm not sure that I could use this overnight or on my heaviest days, but I don't consider that a flaw because I don't need that kind of protection ALL the time--and lots of girls never need something that heavy. (Posted on 9/24/2015)
SO MUCH LOVE for these pads!Review by Seenabeana
I could not love these pads any more! Seriously. I have a lot of Lunapads, and this one just blew them all out of the water. Instead of being preoccupied with wetness and a fear of leakage, I could just carry on with my day, completely care-free. Even with a heavy flow, I was able to get 6 hours of protection from them (for comparison's sake, a doubled up regular Lunapad gets me about 2). It absorbs a lot, but it also pulls the moisture away, so it feels drier and you aren't as aware of your flow. Big love to Lunapads for making these awesome pads! (Posted on 9/17/2015)

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.
