LunaPads – Reusable Menstrual Cloth Pads

Lunapads have two parts: a pad base with wings that fastens around the underwear and a removable insert made from absorbent fleece. The Pad Base is designed to be leak-resistant. Lunapads recommends that users keep the Pad Base in place all day and then change out the insert as needed. In fact, this is given as one of the main factors that makes Lunapads different from other cloth pad brands. With most other brands, you have to change out both the base and the inserts.

Changing all of that would require you to carry more with you, to do more laundry and to potentially have to purchase more items. With Lunapads, you just wear the one base all day and adjust the absorption levels with the removable inserts.

Lunapads are available in mini, maxi, long, overnight and postpartum sizes. In addition to the Pad Style Lunapads, they also produce pantyliners that can be worn for daily use or as a backup for tampons or menstrual cups. They’re available in styles including Thong, Teeny, Mini and Long. Keep in mind that the panty liners do not have a leak-resistant core like their Pad Style products.


Special Features

  • The Pad Base is designed to be leak-resistant.
  • Lunapads have two parts: a pad base with wings and a removable insert made from absorbent fleece (you just wear the one base all day and adjust the absorption levels with the removable inserts)


Benefits & Positive Feedbacks:

These are AWESOME. Every woman should know about them and use them. I would NEVER go back to disposables after using these! So much better for your body, and the environment, AND your pocketbook. They work great and wash out nicely too. BRAVO!!!!!!! Will definitely be telling my friends and sisters about them!”

Most customers had good things to say. The most complaints we’ve seen is from customers who didn’t receive the pads in the color of their choice, which Lunapads has stated was an issue with Amazon fulfillment. Other customers reported that they used to always get rashes when they used disposables, especially the ones with fragrances. Now they feel drier and cleaner, and there’s no unpleasant scratching from plastic against the skin.

Saving money in the long run is another frequently cited plus.



Downsides & Negative Feedbacks:

Not ideal to wear during exercise because they may shift around. One customer, in particular, mentioned having a problem during yoga class.

    Lunapads are a very well-made, reliable product. They do what they say they will do, and they last for years. Anytime I’ve needed assistance with my purchase, I have never had anything but the most excellent customer service from their representatives: quick, thorough responses and clear explanations. More than anything, I value the fact that they have been around for so long and have stuck to their feminist principles the entire time – that’s more than you can say for some other reusable companies!

    + PROS: High quality, long-lasting, do what they say they will do. Great customer support. A company who's ethos I feel good supporting.
    - CONS: Expensive.

    + PROS: None
    - CONS: Horrible customer service, If you want someone to insult you and talk down to you I suggest dealing with this company. If not run....and go to a brand like THINX. Products come with no tags, no wrappers, nothing. You could be getting pair of underwear someone else wore and returned. EWWWWW.... Cheap products, Sizing not correct, product are huge, they make you pay to return their products. This company doesn't stand by their products and makes you feel guilty for not liking their products. i really don't recommend them to anyone, including my worst enemy.

    These are my favorite pads on the market. I love them for so many reasons! No. 1 the insert model makes them super comfortable and easy to use outside of home. I can only change the insert, and then wash or store the used ones, instead of the whole pad. No.2 They are super cute!!! No. 3 They come also in organic cotton, which means a lot to me. No.4 they are not bulky, and I can wear them with my favorite jeans and pants during my period. And I just simply love all the different sizes, designs, products, etc… I honestly don’t think I could switch anymore, I really love the insert option!

    Lunapads are amazing! They are soft and will last you for ever, totally worth the investment. I have been recommending this company for 15 year and everyone loves them! I also love that they are a Canadian company!

    My favorite out of all the cloth pads I have tried (I have tried a ton). Extremely absorbant, super soft and they stay in place.
