The Performa Mini is a high performance washable pad that feels just like your most comfortable pair of cotton underwear. Dimensions are 8” (20.3cm) long and approximately 2.75” (7cm) 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 full coverage leakproof backing keeps everything off your clothes, while the wicking cotton top layer keeps you comfortable and dry. Performa Pads are so easy to use, just snap the wings around your underwear with the tag side facing down, and go about your day.

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

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 Mini will hold approximately 6-9 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.

PerfectReview by Morgan
These pads are *so comfortable.* I also love that they're very absorbent without having to change out inserts (I've never owned a lunapad product with inserts, so I don't know what that's like, but the simplicity of this product is what attracted me to it). It is just as thick as a conventional pad of the same absorbency, but way more comfy. I seriously love the fabric that these are made with; I wish Lunapads made pantyliners with a similar construction and fabric. The purple color is simply lovely, but be warned, it may hold a stain (nothing a decent stain treatment can't fix though). The black is great for avoiding stains but it's a little riskier because you can't easily see where the liquid has been absorbed.

I bought 3 performa pads, and although I'm generally a menstrual cup + pantyliner kinda girl, I'm tempted to get a few more of these because they're just wonderful. (Posted on 2/6/2017)
I'm hooked!Review by Brandi
This was my first Lunapad product and it's perfect! I immediately went back to the store (the same day) to buy another one. No leakage and no more skin reactions! I recommend them to everyone, even my gynecologist! (Posted on 1/12/2017)
Love these!Review by TC
I had a set of Lunapads I had bought several years ago when I first went cloth. When I needed a few more after having lost some throughout the years, I was hesitant to switch to the performa because I loved the other ones so much. However, I could get the performa at my local target so I decided to give them a try. THESE ARE THE BEST! I used to occasionally have problems with leaks through the wings on my heavier days, but the new performa pads solve that problem. I can wear them all through the night without any worries. Also the cotton layer is SO comfortable. I highly recommend these to everyone! (Posted on 1/7/2017)
Wow!Review by coachktb
I have been a cloth pad and Lunapads convert since 2004 and Lunapads have made many changes over the years. These are THE best!!! The original Lunapads were quite bulky, as were subsequent revisions. The newest leakproof regular Lunapads are awesome---but the MAJOR comfort of these is incredible! Soft, super slim, totally leakproof and not as hot and sweaty. I ordered one Mini and while sitting in absolute blissful comfort, I went ahead and ordered a bunch more! I hope they don't come in prints anytime soon, because I have not promised myself to quit spending money on cloth pads :P (Posted on 7/2/2016)
Absolutely lovely!Review by Dianne
I have been a pad-hater all of my life. The perimenopausal years have turned my once-regular, fairly light periods into a capricious, raging, unpredictable flood. At the same time, vaginal tissues have become more irritable and tampons were becoming more and more uncomfortable, even though I used the proper absorbency levels for flow. Paper pads were not an option for me--couldn't tolerate the feel or risk the potentially embarrassing leakage. I was growing more concerned about exposing my delicate mucous membranes to dioxin residues, GMO cotton, and man-made fibers. Then, I discovered Lunapads. I imagined cloth pads would feel even worse than disposables--soggy, lumpy, damp. I ordered two pads as a trial, and they proved me wrong--very wrong! The Performa Mini is soft, comfortable, breathable, and didn't bunch up on a day with average activity and long walks. I was astonished that I did not feel any dampness whatsoever, and the Performa Mini lasted for 8 hours of moderate flow. I remain truly amazed, and have ordered more. Thanks! (Posted on 4/6/2016)
AmazingReview by A
Everything I had ever hoped for and didn't know was possible in a washable pad. Very comfortable, works well with being active. Don't need to constantly replace liners. Easier to wash and store. Huge improvement over classic lunapads. Thank you! (Posted on 1/2/2016)
The Washable Pads I Didn't Know I Was Waiting For!Review by Gail
I've been using the classic Lunapads and liners for 12 years, and in that time, the design hasn't changed. So I was intrigued when I saw the Performa style pads and decided to give them a try.

This is an absolutely brilliant design! Not only do they wick the fluid away from your body for greater comfort, but they are thinner and far more comfortable to wear. They're easier to rinse out, and I no longer feel the need to soak my pads before washing them. The thinner design also makes it easier to stash an extra pad or two in my bag or purse.

And if the managers of Lunapads are reading this, you really need to introduce pantyliners lined with that same moisture wicking fabric. Seriously. (Posted on 12/16/2015)
Perfect!Review by Kate
Performa is an awesome new product! The mini is perfect even on my heavier days, without the bulkiness of extra inserts. The fabric kept me feeling cool and dry, even while doing some heavy cleaning on a hot summer day. I found them to be a bit more comfortable than a Classic with insert just because its not as bulky, while still absorbing so much and not leaking. Also, even in the pretty purple colour, there was no staining after washing! I always just rinse in cold water before throwing into my regular wash and hanging to dry. This is a great option new option, Thanks Lunapads! (Posted on 10/20/2015)
Better protectionReview by Jenn
I've been using classic Lunapads for over four years now...and had to start using a menstrual cup because my flow was almost too heavy for them! So I was excited to try these puppies out! They absorb slightly more than the classic pads, which is awesome and needed. But the best part is that you can get this absorbency in a pad that is LESS bulky than the classic pads with inserts. So this way, it doesn't show when wearing tight jeans/shorts (still doesn't really work with leggings, but no pad does!). Since my flow is really heavy, that is always a concern of mine. It's about as bulky as a classic pad WITHOUT any inserts or a Pantyliner. But since it absorbs more without leaking, it's really a win-win!

I still have to change the pad every few hours, but I feel it does absorb quicker than the classic pads which means they have a lesser chance of leaking (although I did leak a little but I only ordered the mini size and the maxi probably would have prevented that). Any "gush" absorbed quickly and felt much drier than when using the classic pads.

Also it's made from stretchy material, instead of woven like the classic pads. At first, I didn't like it because it felt "flimsy" compared to the others. But actually I feel that makes it softer and "mold" to your body more so it's more comfortable to wear. As comfortable as the classic pads are (and they are! I love them), these are a little bit more comfortable, all while giving you better protection.

My only complaint? No cute prints! :)

But I did get the purple ones and I found that they had absolutely NO staining as long as I washed them the same way as I wash my classic pads (drop in washer, let soak in washer for an hour, use calgon water softener with detergent). (Posted on 10/6/2015)
Performa does just that!Review by Kat
The "performa" is a great new product to round out the Lunapads range. It's ideal for my first two heavier flow days. It absorbs so much without risk of leaking. Once I detect a little wetness against my skin, I know it's time to change the pad. I think that having a stash of 6 or 8 performa's will get me through the first two days of flow without having to stress about laundering for day 2. I use regular classic Lunapads with inserts for lighter flow days, or Lunapanties.

Thanks for making these! They fit securely and provide the confidence a girl needs especially on the heavier flow days!
They are great for a quick change when out and about, and fit easily into the wet/dry travel bags. (Posted on 9/11/2015)

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.
