There’s a lot going on in the period mar­ket nowa­days, and ever­yone is tal­king about sus­tainable mens­trual pro­ducts. Right at the fore­front is period under­wear. At first glance, it looks like nor­mal under­wear, but it cat­ches period blood directly. Now you may be won­de­ring: How good are period pan­ties really? And what makes Modibodi’s pro­ducts spe­cial? I have tes­ted the period under­wear from Modi­bodi for you. Enjoy my honest pro­duct review.

Modibodi: The company

The Aus­tra­lian brand Modi­bodi is all about mens­trua­tion, blad­der weak­ness and bre­ast­fee­ding. Kristy Chong foun­ded Modi­bodi in 2013. After the birth of her child­ren, Kristy suf­fe­red from pel­vic floor weak­ness and set out to find sus­tainable solu­ti­ons for peri­ods and incon­ti­nence. After not really fin­ding what she was loo­king for, she deci­ded to deve­lop some­thing of her own. And the results are to be proud of! The paten­ted Modi­fier tech­no­logy ensu­res that the various Modi­bodi pro­ducts are leak-proof – regard­less of whe­ther it is period blood, urine, sweat or bre­ast milk. Bes­i­des period under­wear Modi­bodi also manu­fac­tures other pro­ducts, such as nur­sing under­wear or leak-proof swim­wear and sports­wear. Since 2020, the pro­ducts are also avail­able in Ger­many – ship­ped from the UK.

How does the period underwear from Modibodi work?

The Modi­fier tech­no­logy ensu­res that the body flu­ids are direc­ted to the inside of the pro­duct, where they are evenly absor­bed, so that there is no unplea­sant, damp fee­ling. The three lay­ers are only 3mm thick. This is a bit more than nor­mal under­wear, but still pretty thin. By the way, the pro­ducts are not only sui­ta­ble for period blood, but also manage urine or sweat. They are the­re­fore also sui­ta­ble for sports, incon­ti­nence or during pregnancy or post­par­tum. It is recom­men­ded to change most of the period under­wear from Modi­bodi at least every 12 hours.

How much blood can the panties from Modibodi absorb?

Modi­bodi offers a wide selec­tion with six dif­fe­rent absor­ben­cies: from super light to Maxi 24h, ever­ything is inclu­ded. Whe­ther you have a stron­ger or wea­ker mens­trua­tion, you’ll find the right pan­ties at Modi­bodi. Since the flow of my own period is con­si­de­red average-nor­mal (about 50ml) and I enjoy free blee­ding, I deci­ded to go with the styles with a light-mode­rate and mode­rate-strong absor­bency. This is about 10-15ml or 2-3 tam­pons. With this absor­bency, the extra layer in the crotch area is only about as big as a pad and the­re­fore rather thin – I per­so­nally pre­fer it this way. The absor­bency level was great for my blee­ding. For the test, I did not prac­tice free blee­ding, but really bled into the under­wear. Other­wise, I enjoy using period under­wear as a backup when free bleeding.

But it’s great that Modibodi’s period under­wear also offers styles for heavy blee­ding. Respec­tively, the under­wear is then also more pad­ded and the layer can reach up to the the back and also the front of the waist­band of the under­wear. You’ll always find infor­ma­tion about the absor­bency and the size of the extra layer for each model on the Modi­bodi web­site. The stron­gest model is the Maxi 24h. I have not tes­ted it, but it is sup­po­sed to absorb up to 50ml of liquid, which cor­re­sponds to about 10 tampons.

What do I like about the period underwear from Modibodi?

The styles, colors, pat­terns and absor­ben­cies of Modibodi’s period under­wear are as varied as people’s needs. From plain or uni­co­lo­red to color­ful or sexy, it’s all avail­able. By now, they have four dif­fe­rent collec­tions: Clas­sic, Sen­sual, Seam­less and Vegan. Depen­ding on the collec­tion, the mate­ri­als of the under­wear vary. The styles I’ve been tes­ting were mainly a mix­ture of bam­boo vis­cose, span­dex and merino wool – which is very com­for­ta­ble on the skin. The mate­rial is soft and adapts to the body.

Modi­bodi con­vin­ces me with it’s diver­sity – not only in terms of under­wear, but also in its cor­po­rate com­mu­ni­ca­tion and visual lan­guage. What’s spe­cial about Modi­bodi, in my view, is also the cor­po­rate phi­lo­so­phy: Accep­t­ing and cele­bra­ting every body as it is. And that’s exactly what we stand for at Vul­vani as well. Modibodi’s latest cam­paign video, “The New Way to Period,” is an emo­tio­nal film that authen­ti­cally por­trays ever­y­day life during mens­trua­tion. Red color was also used to show mens­trual blood. The film was initi­ally blo­cked by Face­book because it was too expli­cit in their opinion.

What about the sizes from Modibodi? How do the panties fit?

The period under­wear is avail­able from size 4XS to 6XL, depen­ding on the style. In the Modi­bodi size chart, the Aus­tra­lian sizes are quickly cal­cu­la­ted based on hip and waist mea­su­re­ments. Accord­ing to the size chart, I have a size M. Howe­ver, my hip mea­su­re­ment was right at the bor­der to size L. That’s why I tes­ted the Modi­bodi period under­wear in both M and L – and both sizes fit well. Espe­cially when my belly might be a bit bloated during my period any­way, some room in the period under­wear is nice.

How much does the period underwear from Modibodi cost?

Pri­ces for period under­wear from Modi­bodi start at 18€. Depen­ding on the model of under­wear pri­ces go up to 35€. For most styles there are also multi-packs with cor­re­spon­ding quan­tity dis­counts avail­able. From 70€ upwards, ship­ping costs are inclu­ded. For example, the swim­suit costs 77€.

How about going swimming or running with Modibodi?

Modi­bodi was the first brand to offer leak-proof swim­wear. How is that sup­po­sed to work? I was won­de­ring the same thing! The swim­wear is also based on the Modi­fier tech­no­logy, which absorbs the period blood. Howe­ver, the swim­suits can only absorb up to 10ml of fluid. So they are more sui­ta­ble for a ligh­ter to regu­lar blee­ding. The close-fit­ting design pre­vents water from get­ting in and the­re­fore pos­si­ble mens­trual blood from lea­king out. I’m loo­king for­ward to tes­ting out my Modi­bodi swim­suit during my period while being on a beach vaca­tion. In addi­tion to swim­wear, Modi­bodi also offers sports­wear for blad­der weak­ness and mens­trua­tion, desi­gned spe­ci­fi­cally for working out. There is pro­bably no need that Modi­bodi does not cover.
