Modibodi is revolutionizing women’s periods. This is not a subject anyone really wants to talk about, but these underwear need to be. Modibodi began in late 2013. The founder, Kristy Chong, took two years of careful decision and review to test different fabrics and materials to finally create the product. The company consulted with nearly 100 textile engineers and fiber companies (USA/Australia). There were close to 1,000 scientific tests and collaboration with Australian lingerie designers!
I have yet to try without a feminine product, but next time I can manage to be home one day, that is my goal. These are SO Comfortable! I have been very impressed with the odor fighting, wicking and general function of Modibodi. They are beautiful as well.
I am going to buy these for my young daughter as she approaches the age of puberty, because this could completely change her experience. For young girls the age of puberty is becoming younger and younger. Right now the estimated age is 8-12 years. This is as young as ELEMENTARY school! Also If you look at the products available, they are all geared towards full grown women. This is NOT Right. I seriously hope that modibodi makes products geared towards young girls. I would love to see a cost effective first period pack of undies for young girls with a collection of 4-5 pairs. We need to empower our young girls to celebrate their bodies and not fear their periods.
Modibodi is based in Australia but ships to countries all over the world. They have received amazing reviews from high profile people such as Rosie Waterland, Kimmy Smith, Bec Judd and Mia Freedman.
Modibodi™ uses high quality, tech-savvy fabrics (like Bamboo, Merino Perform Wool and Microfiber) paired with wicking, breathable, and antimicrobial fibres. They paired all of this with their patented Modifier Technology™ – a super slim (only 3mm) stain resistant lining for modern periods and leaks, and Modifier Air Technology™ – a moisture-wicking, odor-fighting lining for getting sweaty.
Modibodi’s Modifier Technology is a three-layer system. They are supposed to replace disposable feminine hygiene products for light to medium days. I’m serious!
1. The top layer wicks moisture away from skin and the antimicrobial properties fight odor.
2. The middle layer absorbs fluid.
3. The bottom layer is waterproof. This keeps leaks from seeping through onto your clothes, furniture, sheets, seats in your car.
A regular flow consists of about 15-20ml = 2 tampons and 3 teaspoons. The underwear can be used alone on medium to heavy period days (check the style specifics) and keep snug as a bug for overnight leaks
You can make a huge impact by using fewer disposable pads and tampons.
I believe the pair I was sent were the Sensual Hi Waist Bikini. These have a higher leg and sits on the hip for a safe, snug fit.
Modibodi fits and wears like regular underwear, but it’s also fit for purpose. They can change the planet, one pair at a time! The ability for women to be able to have healthier periods without the chemical laden pads and tampons is awesome.
The breathable Modifier Technology™ – a super slim (3mm), super absorbent, stain and bacteria fighting lining for modern periods, bladder leaks and discharge.
Their silky smooth styles are made from natural odour-fighting bamboo!! SO AWESOME!
To wash, Rinse first, gentle cold machine wash, hang to dry, reuse, repeat. (No fabric softeners or stain removers.)
My favorite quote from their site “Proudly owned and designed in Australia by real women with leaking lady parts”
