I only have Luna liners, but I like them for days when I feel like I need extra protection. I tend to like the organic ones better- but have to confess, I am not a fan of the rick rack's. If it was AIO without a rick-rack insert I would probably find myself using them more often.

These are the most expensive pads on the market (to my knowledge). They are very well made and they have a very interesting design; the liner sits on top of the pad rather than the more common envelop with inserts style. A pad is composed of a base with elastic strips at either end. The liner(s) are put on top of the pad and held on by slipping the ends under the elastic strips. This feature is very nice because you can use one pad throughout the day; you just change the liners as they become soiled.
Complaints: I ordered three maxi pads. When I washed/dried them, on cold no less, they shrank to the size of minis. Also, I found that the pad bunched most uncomfortably, rubbing my clitoris and labia raw. The elastic bands also irritated my vulva, and while you can change the liners, the bands also get soiled and obviously can't be changed.
I really wanted to like these pads, especially considering the price. They are very well made and the fabric is wonderfully soft, but the shrinking and the fact that I was so incredibly sore from the chaffing after just one day knocked it down three points for me.

They do shrink. I'm right there with you.
Glad I wasn't the only one who thought mine got a wee-bit smaller.

They are cute and well made but I have also noticed how much they shrink. I now have to use my long pads for maxis, my maxis for minis, and my minis for pantiliners. Sad

I gave Lunapads a 4.

These were my very first cloth pad purchase two years ago.
Things I like about them:
1. The craftsmanship is A+; really well-sewn.
2. I love the fact that you only need to change the liners & not the whole pad. I work outside the home & it's much easier to carry several liners instead of several AIOs (although I do both.)
3. I've never had a leak!

Things I don't like:
1. They are SO EXPENSIVE! I really think it's a shame that Lunapads are so expensive. I would be willing to buy more (I only have two) but I can't justify paying the high price when there are so many WAHM-made pads that are also very well-made but much more reasonably priced. Again, I do think it's a shame that Lunapads are so overpriced that there are many women who can't afford them!
2. They do shrink but that really is a minor concern for me.

So, there you have it--I do like the product but dislike the price.

I'm not too fond of the insert system for the Luna pads... the liners never stay in just right, and the ric-rac is uncomfortable for me. Because of this, I barely ever use the Luna pads I have.

They are well-made and seem sturdy, but they just aren't for me.

I got the free Lunapad everyone got for posting the Lunapad link on their blog. Boy, I am really glad I didn't shell out the money for this pad, or I'd be disappointed! The fabrics are really cute, and the pads themselves are visually pleasing, but the rickrack just isn't my cup of tea. It kind of grosses me out to have the bloody rickrack on the pad after you change out a liner. I always just change the whole thing, so that kind of defeats the purpose of a top-loading pad.

The fabric is very absorbant, and I like the concept of the winged liner. However, the fabric has not held up well in the wash. It is horribly pilled and old-looking. I hate to even wear it because it looks so bad compared to my other pads.

The pads are sewn well and have a commercial feel to them (there is a gigantic Lunapad tag on one of the wings that is totally unnecessary). I prefer my WAHM pads over these any day.

I gave them a 2, because of the durability is not there and because the rickrack is such a gross concept.

Customer Service - Customer service was good. Received pads well packaged and with a free plastic pad storage pouch that looked a bit like a pencil case. I admit I use the storage pouch much more than the actual pads.

Workmanship - The item looks well made when you first get it. No loose threads and edges were topstiched or serged nicely.

Comfort & Fit - fits fine, but I don't like the rick rack holder thing. it doesn't work too well and the inserts are fiddly to use. I really only use this pad because it's so expensive I don't want to NOT use it, but I only use it on those days when I'm really only spotting so i can change out the inserts.

Look - Nice to look at at first, but not after you use them.

Durability - Not really fraying, but cloth is obviously not pre-shrunk before being sewn. The liner shrunk while the inserts didn't (edges also waved). And the 2 inserts I have warped in different ways, so one is just smaller while the other is longer than even the liner. Obviously, patterns were not cut on the cloth the same way.

Value for money - Poor value for money compared to what else is out there and what one can make up themselves.

There were what I first got when I decided to switch to cloth. I was happy enough with the first bunch I got to go back for more while I was filling out my stash.

Pros:

-Well made... but then they are factory made so i wouldn't really expect less
-Nice selection of fabrics
-The changeable top liners are handy allowing one to “freshen up” rather then do a complete pad change.
-The various options in pad size, and liner style really lets you create a pad suited to you.

Cons:

-Changeable liners (yes I know I had this in pros too… but it really depends on the mood I’m in) they’re kind of fussy with you aren’t at home. You defiantly need a wet bag to put them in after a change. The wing liners are a bit bulky for me… but that’s more of a personal preference I suppose.
-Shrinkage: They do shrink… some more then others. Luckily my pads and liners have all shrunk pretty evenly.
-Cost: They are expensive. But if you really have your heart set on them there are ways to save some money. Buying the Kits helps when I did the math I was saving money buying that way rather then individual pads. I also did searched and came up with a promo code for my first order. They’ve sent me coupons with each others since. And if you watch the site there are sales/seconds occasionally. Also some other sellers have lower prices then the LunaPads site.

FireAphid Posted: Tue Feb 19, 2008 8:30 am
I guess I'm somewhat alone in saying this, but I really like these. Lunapads were my first venture into cloth, and I really liked the liner-on-top design because I'm not home much and having to bring a few liners in my pocket seemed easier than bringing as many AIOs. It was also important for them to not have polyester fleece because it would get too hot, as I live in a desert, and I appreciated the plastic snaps because I'm allergic to some metals. I was also intrigued by the fact that LunaPads is one of very few seller that aren't WAHMs, not that I find that necessarily good or bad, but their goal was to appeal to a larger, more mainstream audience, and it worked. They're about twice as expensive as the maximum I now know to pay, but I'll consider that a mistake on my part for not doing enough research before I bought the intro kit. I didn't like most of the prints because they were too girly, but I found a couple I liked, and the kit had one of everything I wanted to try, specifically all the smaller pads, which was good because I always found disposables to be too big.

There were some things I didn't like: I wish the liquid-resistant nylon went throughout the wings as well as the core of the pad, because that's where I have leaks, and the sewn on snaps and big commercialized tag can be scratchy (although removing the tag is an easy fix). I'd also be happier if they made a narrower design, maybe 2.25-2.5 inches rather than 2.75 inches. I was also disappointed that the colors of my liners were slightly different when they were supposed to be identical, but it doesn't affect their performance.

However, I have no problem with the ric-rac bands or the liners; they're comfortable and convenient, and if placed reasonably the elastic won't touch anything sensitive, and in my case, won't even get dirty. The winged liners are a great option for nights! It's also great that the liners and bases of the mini and maxi can be interchanged, so I don't have to revert to disposables if I haven't done enough laundry to have a matching set. Although mine shrunk a bit, it was really only a problem for the teeny liner, and had no noticeable effect on the liner, mini, or maxi, and they haven't shown any signs of pilling, warping, or otherwise falling apart. There has been some minor staining, but I also defy the instructions and briefly rinse them and stick them in a laundry bag for an indefinite amount of time before machine washing them, rather than soaking and drying.

My stash isn't big enough to last through one whole period without washing yet, so my opinion reflects less wisdom than that of a more experienced woman, but, for me, the great design and workmanship outweigh the drawbacks of the price, and Lunapads gave me a positive view of cloth pads and made me interested enough to do more research and try other brands, which I take as a win.

Edited by FireAphid on Wed Sep 23, 2009: Okay, so I've been using cloth for almost two years now, and I still love my Lunapads. I got a couple more mini pads from trades and freebies, and they're really my favorites for being out and about because I only have to carry extra liners, which fit in my pockets, rather than additional pads, which are too big to carry without a bag all day. I maintain that the Lunagals provide good customer service despite the size of the company, and that the pads are sturdy and durable if not maximally attractive. The wing liners are great because they can be used with other brands' base+liner style pads, but no one else seems to implement the idea. If I could rate them again, I'd give the mini pad a 5, because they just fit my body perfectly. Oh, and I've also tried Lunapanties, which are a great idea, but they run big, so they don't fit well on the panties side more than the pad side of things; I would have rated Lunapanties a 3. So, in the end, having tried the teeny liner (too short), the mini liner (too thick for everyday use), the mini pad (just right), the maxi pad (too short for nights, too long for days), and bikini Lunapanties (poor fit, good idea), I stand by my rating of 4. If they have another good promotion, I will probably buy from them again because I genuinely like their products.

These were my first venture into cloth too.

Likes:

Great marketing in magazines like Bust, and a really great website that's VERY cloth-positive and cloth-promoting. I love their period-positive message.

Very soft fabrics and good variety of sizes.

The Lunapanties are a great idea I haven't seen anywhere else.

Great customer service.


Dislikes:

Waaaaayyyy too thin for my heavy flow. Even the "long/heavy" pad was too flimsy for me. I don't think I should have to "double up" or "fold over" multiple layers or multiple liners to get the protection I need.

No pads offered with a squared or flared back. When I move around, the thin fabric with its rounded ends gather and bunch up my butt.

The rick-rack liner holder concept is just that - a good concept. I like the idea of changing liners and don't mind a little strip of bloody material on top of a fresh liner, but WHY OH WHY rick-rack? It's abrasive, not secure, flimsy, and rough on the lady bits, especially if you're shaven/waxed! I would LOVE if they would make the liner holder bands out of a 1/2 inch wide piece of soft, elasticized terry or flannel. Seriously, then it would be perfect! (Lunapad company folks reading this - take note!)

I tried the Lunapanties because I thought it was a great idea. I'm a 14/16 dress size and ordered the Large as directed on their sizing chart. The panties that arrived were more like a 18/20! They were HUGE, and I like a snug fit during my period. I exchanged them for a Medium and they were STILL too big. The fabric used on the panties isn't very stretchy or elasticized, so they feel "baggy" - only the seams feel secure. NOT what I want to feel while I'm flowing. I couldn't return them after I'd used them, of course, so I was stuck with them and out the $30 I paid for them.

The snaps are sewn onto squares of stiff backing, and the corners cut into your skin.

And that tag - are they kidding? I imagine that's what helps drive the high prices, and most women probably just cut it right off - that's what I did. Ditch the tag and cut a few bucks off the price.

And of course, like everyone else, I agree that they are HORRENDOUSLY overpriced. There are rarely any deals offered, and quite honestly, after getting into the cloth pad game and trying out some of the SAHM and Etsy sellers, I'll never go back to dispoable OR Lunapads again. My money is better spent supporting indie sellers who make pads I actually like.

Sorry, Lunapads.

I rated these 3 out of 5. Workmanship is good. Customer Service is good. Fabrics looks worn and tired after just a few months of use. The fabric also shrinks A LOT. I was really disappointed in that. The PUL didn't last either. Very disappointed in them considering how much I paid for them. I wouldn't recommend them, nowadays there a tons of SAHMs that make nicer/better ones.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
FireAphid Posted: Thu May 08, 2008 10:18 pm
I was looking over the papers sent in the mail with my Lunapads order, and it said that they had some sort of Satisfaction Guarantee. Well, I was pretty upset at how ridiculously small the Teeny Pantyliner was, so I e-mailed them about it. Because I'd already used the pads and couldn't return them, they offered me a store credit for the value of the pantyliners from the kit, just in time for a big 20% off sale of everything. I used it to get wing liners to use with other base+liner style pads such as Tamarack's JazzyPads and Naomi's Pads since no one else seems to make wing liners, which I like for nights. They let me pick the colors and sizes for them, but shipped the wrong thing. When I told them about it, they sent me the ones I asked for, without even asking me for some proof of their mistake, a refreshing dose of trust. I also got a chance to try Lunapanties, which are another great concept with an imperfect implementation; the cut of the bikini style sits too high on the waist for me and has rally high-cut leg holes, but it's nothing that can't be worked with, and I feel like it was a good thing to try for ~$10 (because the store credit covered the rest and they were on sale as seconds for something I could fix with scissors). So, everyone who complained, if you bought Lunapads in the last 3 months or so, you can contact them and explain what didn't work out for you, and they just might give you a credit you can spend on things that aren't even Lunapads, like wetbags, Divawash, etc. Good luck!

I gave them a 1

Lunapads were my first pads ever, before that I used rags or folded hankerchiefs, or folded washcloth. So I was very excited when I discovered Lunapads, but unfortunately, they did not proove great in actual wear.

The overall design is nice, but I have often had leaks on the side of the pad, maybe because the PUL does not extend to the wings.
The fabrics are soft, but the flanelette is not very durable, it looks worn off after just a few washes.

The insert is supposed to be fixed on the base with rik rack bands. Why this choice of material I dont know, since rik rack is neither absorbant nor comfortable... it is not soft on the skin ! Unfortunately, the insert doesn't just fit under the band, it seems that the band is not large enough, so you have to squeeze the insert under it, folding the insert a little, and it makes it a little bulky.

So, the idea is not bad, but the realisation is not yet great.

One thing that was not so bad, though, were the liners and winged liners. The fabric is soft and absorbant, and I have for a time used them with pads from an other brand, and I still keep some at hand, should extra absorbancy be needed.

My biggest complaint concerns the snaps and the tag, which irritate the skin of my tighs. The tag is enormous, and rigid, and it is sewn with the snaps, wich means one cannot take the tag off without having to sew back the snaps after. And those snaps ! Fixed on hard and rigid synthetic ribbon, they really scratch my skin ! I cannot understand why Lunapads uses those terrible snaps when any WAHM pad maker manages to provide strong, comfortable and well aplied snaps.

All in all I completely ceased to use Lunapads.

Post  memorist on Wed Sep 01, 2010 10:22 pm

i am so not a fan of these despite having them for years

i find the base bulky, plus the snap system is weird (at some point they used rows of 3 snaps with those tiny "snaps on a strip" way)

The inserts are all cut different directions on the flannel material so all the liners shrink in different ways (not preshrunk i don't think) so some liners are longer than others, some are more narrow than others

I find the rick rack way of putting in the liners not very convenient and the liners tend to bunch up.

On the plus side, they look almost like new after 3 years, but mainly i think it's because i so rarely use them.

The marketing and packaging that comes with the pad is great, but imo, the actual product is overpriced and so not worth it.

Kudos to them on really getting the word out there about cloth pads though

These are my least favorite pads. The snaps design was my biggest complaint - they use a sew on snap, and the fabric backing is very rough and scratched the inside of my thighs whenever I wore them. I've also decided that the insert style of pad just doesn't work for me, they bunch up and I tend to bleed onto the rickrack, so I end up changing the entire pad all at once anyway. Plus, I really didn't think these were very absorbent, and adding layers of inserts made them unbearably thick and bulky.

I modified my Lunapads to make them more useful to me: I removed the snaps and sewed on my own metal snaps, and cut off the rickrack entirely. I now use them as liners on light days. I don't hate them now that I've made modifications, but I definitely give these a low rating.

Post  fireaphid on Tue Mar 29, 2011 5:49 pm

My post from the old forum was saved, but I'm going to post more of my thoughts here just to balance out the written reviews. It's an unpopular viewpoint, but I do like the liner-on-top style as well as Lunapads in particular. They may not be very absorbent, but if you have a light or predictable flow, that may not be a major problem. I like them because I can carry all the pads I need in my pockets, which wouldn't be possible if I exclusively used AIOs.

Additionally, the Lunagals are true professionals, and the customer service is great. They're more expensive, and because other sellers make pads with the same liner-on-top style for a much lower price, I wouldn't call them a good value. I think they're well-made, but I don't think the materials are any better than average. I've had mine for 3 1/2 years, and they've held up alright, but they do look as old as they are, as cotton fleece and flannel really show their age. I'm also not crazy about most of the patterns/colors, as there's a limited selection with an emphasis on pink and flowers, so I'm not likely to buy more, though I do look for them in trades.

I have 1 long liner in this brand that I got as a 'sample' with paid shipping. The liner shrunk significantly (they must not prewash) and flannel pilled after just that initial wash. The snaps are hard to close as they are tiny. I would not buy these with my own money (glad I just paid shipping for the sample). I gave them 2 stars because they do advocate the use of reusable products but from my experience with just one liner, the quality of WAHM menstrual cloths and liners (on etsy and hyenacart) are far superior to this over-priced brand.

These were the first cloth pads I ever purchased (I had no idea there were so many other brands available at the time). Honestly, the "regular" pad that you are supposed to wear for regular/heavy days was the bulkiest most uncomfortable pad I've ever used. You might as well just put a towel in your underwear, because that's what it felt like. Even the mini pads were uncomfortable. For some reason they feel very stiff and unflexible, and very thick. I would not recommend these and would never purchase them again.

Lunapads

Post  ElizabethAnneBoleyn on Sat Jan 28, 2012 8:06 pm

I'm falling into the minority on this one, but I really enjoy my Lunapads. Especially when I'm on the go- it's nice to only need to carry around a few inserts instead of a few larger pads.

Quality- Great! The inserts are wonderfully soft and cozy, and definitely thin enough to be comfortable without feeling overly bulky (granted, stacking more than one insert for heavier flow is definitely a bit bulkier, but I haven't had to do that too often). I tend to wear the Maxis on moderate days, and find that one insert is plenty absorbant for a couple of hours. The inserts stay in place, and there is barely (if any) shifting of the pads or the inserts. The pad base material does look worn after some washes, but that is typical of flannel, fleece, and cotton materials. The stitching is professionally done, and holds up nicely (I wash on a regular or even heavy cycle, and have had no issues). The pantyliners are incredibly comfy, and offer a great deal of protection (I own the Mini Pantyliners and the Long Pantyliners and love them both!). The Mini Pads are nice for light to moderate days, and I own one Postpartum pad that I find useful for overnights when I'm paranoid about leaking onto my sheets (although I prefer the winged liner over the tri-fold). I have NEVER had a leak with these pads (and only "leaked" onto the base pad through the insert a couple of times, but never through the base). I also appreciate the fact that Lunapads offers winged liners- some people dislike them, but I find them to be very comforting and cozy.

Price- Definitely expensive. The most expensive I have found to date. My only complaint about Lunapads is the high price. I understand that being a larger company usually means higher cost (what with advertising, employees, distribution costs, etc), so I try not to let it upset me too much. Do I think it's worth the money to have some in one's stash? Absolutely, if you enjoy the liner-on-top style pads. Would I build an ENTIRE collection of Lunapads only? Probably not, unless I had the extra cash to throw around. But I like variety anyway, so it's kind of a moot point. They also offer a facebook discount, as well as frequent sales and promotions, which helps on the price for sure! They are currently running a free liner sample for the cost of shipping. Shipping is fast, but also a bit pricey (internationally at least, from Canada to the U.S.). They do give free shipping on orders over $75!

Customer Service- Excellent. These women are easy to work with, happy to answer your questions, and aim to please their customers (and frequently have followed up with me to make sure I enjoyed my purchases). They have some nifty perks with regards to CS- such as a 1-800 number, as well as an online chat (which I have used several times!). I also have a deep appreciation for their willingness to help others spread the word about reusables (I've seen them give away many products for this purpose). I think it's also fabulous that these pads can now be foudn in some drugstores in Canada (it'd be nice to see them, as well as other brands, in US stores too!). But it's nice that this company is getting out a product that is more mainstream.

Lunapads also offers many great products aside from their pads. The Lunatic chocolate bars are amazing, and honestly have helped relieve my cramps! The Bunchafarmers stain stick is an incredible way to get rid of potential stains. I haven't tried Lunapanties yet, but I'm looking forward to doing so soon! And there are tons more products available on their site!

While they may not be the most popular or best value, I still hold true to my Lunapads. I like the ability to customize the absorbancy, as well as the feel (sometimes I enjoy a thicker pad, sometimes a thinner one), and especially the convenience of not needing to carry around more than a few inserts to get me through a day. If liner-on-top pads are an interest, give Lunapads a try (just remember to take advantage of the discount codes!).

Lunapads

Post  Zsoka on Wed Feb 22, 2012 3:40 pm

I actually really like my Lunapads. I find them comfortable and absorbent. I like that I can change the liner without having to change the whole pad as this means I have to carry less stuff around. I also have not had any issues with staining.

I don't know why the two brands of pads that can be found most often in stores are the two that are in my opinion the worst. I love that the founders of Luna Pads work so hard to spread the word about cloth pads. However, my first cloth pad (years ago) was a Luna Pad, and it worked so poorly that it was several years before I got up the nerve to try reusables again. The design just does not work for me, at all. I will take an all-in-one made in someone's home over these any day.

I gave Lunapads a 4 because I think they are a great company, doing many wonderful things for women and girls and provide excellent customer service. That said, I don't really use them anymore. Lunapads were my first pad crush when there was very little options out there. This was years ago and I was loyal to them. I liked the ability to change the liner because I had a heavy flow and needed to often and then when lunapanties came out i switch to those because I found them less bulky and more comfortable and discreet under jeans/pants.

I stopped using cloth pads all together for a while and when I came back to cloth, I ordered new luna pads and panties, not realizing there were so many amazing other companies to choose from! Because I was pregnant, I ordered the postpartum kit which included one heavy (postpartum) pad and liners and one long pad with liners. The liners are amazingly soft. I also ordered new lunapanties. I never got to use the postpartum pad because by the time I got out of the hospital I had stopped my heavy flow, but I do use the long pad as an overnight pad and I find it very comfortable. I was very disappointed with the new design for lunapanties. I plan to sell them. I have never used them because they are so bulky now they are like wearing a diaper. They would have been great for postpartum but I will never use them for my regular period. The pantyliners are also way to bulky for me and move around too much.

Here's my breakdown:
Customer Service: Excellent
Workmanship: Good but I dont like the tiny metal snaps, sound sewing, well made
Comfort & Fit: Bulky but nice soft fabrics. Fine for sitting around or sleeping but not for going out and about in my opinion.
Look: I'm not in love with their prints, there really isnt a beauty to their design, just function.
Durability: good
Value for money:They are pricey but worth it if this is the style you want.

I only have good things to stay about luna pads besides the fact that their products are pricey. Shop around and you can find great quality products at a more affordable price.
