I don’t normally talk about too personal topics on my blog, but this one really excites me because it has definitely changed the way I handle my period. Trust me, this has been a game-changer for me! I have always struggled with long and heavy periods, but since I had my girls and reached my forties, my periods became worse. So when I was approached by Modibodi, a sustainable, reusable, leak-proof period underwear, to try their underwear, I straight away said yes.
About Modibodi Period Proof Underwear
Modibodi, who is based in Australia, has developed exclusive patented technologies that make up the way the underwear works, including the patented Modifier Technology™ and the patent-pending Modifier Swim Technology, to bring women all over the globe a range of leak-proof, lightweight and stylish underwear.
According to CEO and Founder, Kristy Chong “Modibodi™ gives women the freedom to live life in a fearless, sustainable and fashionable way. From periods, to discharge, to light bladder leakage and even mummy breast milk leaks, my aim was to make underwear and swimwear that was fashionable but utilised technology to offer protection and a more sustainable choice.”
How it Works
Modibodi features a three-layer component; the top layer quickly wicks away moisture, fights bacteria and stops odours. A middle layer quickly absorbs fluid and locks it away (up to 20 MLS absorbency) The third and bottom layer gives you extra leak-proof protection, ensuring you are at your most secure and confident, with no leaking through to clothes, which means total freedom.
- They’re reusable.
- You can choose from 4 different absorbencies.
- Uses high-quality natural fabrics and breathable tech-savvy blends (Bamboo, Merino Perform Wool and Microfibre) with the latest in antimicrobial fibres for a soft, silky fit.
- Odour free.
My Thoughts on Modibodi Period Proof Underwear
Sensual Hi-Waist Bikini Heavy Overnight
Classic Bikini Light Moderate
I am not going to lie, I was very hesitant at first as I wasn’t sure if it will work. I have never tried something like this before. But I was tired of running out of pads and having to deal with it every single month as well as the inevitable accidents that come from heavy periods.
And then there is the environmental aspect of disposable sanitary pads too. I also want to contribute to helping to reduce the amount of single-use products that end up in UK landfills.
I have tried them for 2 full periods now. Being in lockdown has helped a lot as I get used to wearing the period-proof underwear. I didn’t need to get out so much meaning I could properly try them and get comfortable wearing them around the house before choosing to wear them out in public.
I am blown away as to how great this product is. Firstly, I can’t believe how much it absorbs, especially the one with heavy overnight absorbency. I have not had any leaks, I cannot smell anything and it is very comfortable. And the best part it actually looks great!
How to take care of your Modibodi Garment
After using your underwear for your period, you should rinse them in cold water until the water runs clear. You should not soak it. Then put it in the washing machine in cold water. Avoid using fabric softener and do not tumble dry. You should leave your period-proof underwear to air dry. It will take longer to dry for the underwear that has heavy absorbency.
I am so happy with my Modibodi period-proof underwear that I am definitely going to get more to cover my whole period. Switching to Modibodi period-proof underwear has me feeling much more comfortable about my periods in general. I don’t dread them each month as much as I did. As I mentioned above, it really is a complete game-changer for me. I can definitely recommend you to try it too. The full range can be found at www.modibodi.co.uk with prices ranging from £15.50 to £25 for underwear collections and the swimwear starting at £72.
