Modibodi, underwear that absorbs – If like many you suffer from heavy periods there is always dread when it comes to your ‘time of the month’. I am pleased to say that with the development of technology in the underwear department, these worries could be a thing of the past.
Australian brand Modibodi was founded to help people better manage their periods as well as sweat and incontinence without the need for disposable pads, tampons, or liners. It is a more comfortable, dignified solution that is better for our bodies and better for the environment.
Lifestyles and our expectations have changed, not long ago, for example, reusable bags were unheard of, as we understood the impact plastic bags had on our environment we have progressed and accepted this change. Like water bottles, straws, and coffee cups making the swap to reusables has become part of our everyday lives.
Menstrual products are no exception and manufacturers are finding more innovative ways to increase performance and lessen their impact on the environment for the planet today but also future generations.
Modibodi have designed every type of period underwear you can imagine. With eight different styles, from thong to boy short, and six absorbency levels, from moisture-wicking to 24-hour protection, you’ll be covered for every eventuality. The super-light period underwear holds 0.5 teaspoons, while the heavier flow options can handle up to four teaspoons.
Their period underwear has Modifier Air Technology, this is a moisture-wicking, odour-fighting lining that keeps you feeling—and smelling—fresh.
The principle behind the technology is the layers, a top layer of Merino wool wicks moisture, it is soft on the skin, naturally antimicrobial and repels odour to keep you fresh, dry, and comfy. The bottom layer is the outer fabric of your underwear, which is made from the softest, most breathable materials to sit close to your skin.
For super light to heavy overnight absorbencies, a patented modifier technology takes over. This has an additional quick-drying microfibre middle layer that absorbs fluid and odour – and locks it away with even better, antimicrobial technology fights bacteria to keep you fresh.
Maxi 24-hour absorbency for maximum protection designed for all day and overnight, Patent-pending Maxi-24Hrs Technology can hold an incredible 50ml – that’s up to 10 tampons’ worth – without a leak in sight, this includes multiple microfibre middle layers of absorbency, locking away fluid and odours.
In addition to period underwear, Modibodi also makes activewear, maternity and swimwear, babies’ nappies, and accessories as well as leak-proof lines for teens and men who may be looking to avoid sweat and chafing or general leakage mishaps.
Having tried a selection of the Modibodi range, Women Talking can wholeheartedly agree that they are a real breakthrough, Modibodi is comfortable, reliable, and amazing and lots of people say, as we agree, that they will never go back to disposables.
Founder and creator of Modibodi Kristy Chong is a mum on a mission, a fast-tech entrepreneur and a social advocate for women’s health issues and rights.
After the birth of her second child, Kristy’s experience with “unmentionable” bladder leaks made her determined to start her own brand. One that would change our mindsets – and the planet! – by changing underwear for the better.
This ambition saw her design, develop, and scientifically prove her patented Modifier Technology leak-proof undies and transform this into the Modibodicollection: a reusable, sustainable range of tops, singlets, period, and sweat-proof undies as well as swimwear, created to liberate us all from endless amounts of landfill.
Period underwear has the capacity to drive fundamental change for the environment, significantly improve the quality of life and period dignity for millions of people around the world.
The brand also has a Give A Pair scheme on its site, and to date has donated over 23,000 pairs of underwear to help people globally in need.
Every dollar customers donate goes towards putting a pack of five pairs of reusable, leak-proof underwear into the hands of people in need – worldwide.
