Period-proof undies are an interesting concept, right? And when you’ve spent your whole adult life buying (and disposing of) tampons and pads, they are a pretty attractive idea too.
But if you’ve delayed giving them a go up till now because how do you test them out in real life without any of the risk of accidents, NOW is the perfect time to give them a try! It turns out that self-isolation has a real tangible upside. You could be completely tampon and pad-free by the time we are released back into the world again. Such a win!

Modibodi in real life
Nic got her period on day two of self-isolation and was dealing with the same uncertainty that many face when challenging notions of our periods that have been instilled in us from an early age.
“The thought of giving up tampons made me feel really uncertain. A lot of my friends, plus my sisters, business contacts and even casual acquaintances, have asked me about the product as a lot of them are skeptical for the same reasons I was,” Nic explains. “It’s ingrained in a lot of us from a young age, and probably in particular my generation, that disposables are the answer as periods are often framed as being messy and a bit secretive. Remember high school? All the girls would furiously deny having their period whilst also frantically checking the back of their skirt for those pesky few days of the month.”

But since trialling Modibodi in self-isolation, Nic hasn’t gone back.
“Modibodi has been absolutely dependable. I’ve even brazenly worn white pants while trusting my period underwear to do their job,” she says. “Now that I’m avoiding unnecessary trips out of the house, the sense of relief I felt today was enormous. I didn’t have to search through endless handbags for a tampon. I wasn’t opening and closing my bathroom cabinet hoping one magically appeared.”

The origin story
Modibodi began in late 2013, but it took almost two years of picking, prodding, prototyping, washing, wearing, testing and fine-tuning to develop the final product. They consulted with up to 100 textile engineers and fibre companies (both in the USA and Australia) and conducted close to 1,000 scientific tests and finished by working with leading Australian lingerie designers and manufacturers.
Modibodi uses high quality, tech-savvy fabrics (like bamboo, merino perform wool and microfibre) and the latest in breathable, antimicrobial fibres 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, odour-fighting lining for getting sweaty. They’ve recently added their brand new patent-pending Modifier Swim Technology™ to the Modibodi stable of innovation, found exclusively in their water-repellent, leak-proof swimwear range.
Modibodi’s truly been designed for all ages, all sexes, all shapes, and sizes. Because they believe that making a positive change in the world should be as easy as changing your undies and swimwear! In just a few short years, Modibodi’s empowered thousands of women globally to embrace their bodies, open their minds and along the way they’ve received rave reviews from high profile ladies including Rosie Waterland, Kimmy Smith, Bec Judd and Mia Freedman.
