Review: Do Modibodi Period Underwear Really Work? + Giveaway

It is a crazy time at the moment and many women are finding that their local stores have been wiped clean of sanitary and period products and are in search of something a little more sustainable. A reusable option.

This is where the idea to finally try Modibodi came about. I’ll be the first person to say that I either skipped my periods entirely or used pads and tampons as my monthly products. However, with this option taken away (although only temporary), it has made me consider alternative options. I’m sure I’m not alone in wondering… do Modibodi period underwear really work?

Read this review to find out.

What is Modibodi?

Modibodi underwear are sustainable and reusable period and light bladder leakage apparel. They replace the need for disposable pads, panty liners, tampons and incontinence products.

As you can see on the Modibodi website, they use high quality, tech-savvy fabrics (like Bamboo, Merino Perform Wool and Microfibre) and the latest in breathable, antimicrobial fibres with our Australian 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.

Modibodi period underwear review

There are a number of bikini styles and absorbencies available for men, women and teens. But for the purpose of this review, I tested three different pairs. Classic bikini in light-moderate absorbency, seamfree full brief in moderate-heavy protection and classic bikini in heavy/overnight absorbency.

I will be honest… I have considered trying these products in the past for the purpose of being more environmentally friendly but I was always sceptical. Sceptical if they’d actually work, if they’d hold fluid like tampons and pads do, if they’d leak and leave me with embarrassing stains on my clothing.

After using the Modibodi period underwear for a week I feel I can confidently review these products.

Classic Bikini: Light-Moderate Absorbency

I used these on day 1 of my period and the post period day (you know, the ‘HA, I’m back’ period revenge day). They hold 1-1.5 tampons / 1-2 teaspoons / 5-10 ml worth of fluid. I found these underwear were more than adequate for me on these days however, it would really depend on your flow.

Seamfree Full Brief: Moderate-Heavy Protection

Now, the granny panties… Ok, let’s call them high waisted underwear. These were good for day 2 as they hold 2-3 tampons / 3 teaspoons / 15 ml worth of fluid. More than one pair of these may be required depending on your flow.

Classic Bikini: Heavy / Overnight Absorbency

These were best for during the middle of my cycle and nights as they offered much more absorbency than the others. You could feel these offered more protection as the absorbency sections were thicker. Still comfortable but definitely thicker. Given these are thicker, I was impressed that you couldn’t see the underwear through clothing. They hold 2 tampons / 3 teaspoons / 15-20 ml of fluid.

Do Modibodi products work?

Are Modibodi period underwear comfortable? YES. I cannot comment on all styles but the ones reviewed here are incredibly comfortable.

How many pairs of period underwear do you need?
This really depends on your flow. Some days I only needed the one pair however other days when my period was heavier, more pairs were definitely needed.

What do you do with the underwear when you need to change them?
This really depends on where you are. If you are at home like I have been (in Covid-19 lockdown) than you simply swap them for a fresh pair and take your used ones to the laundry, rinsed them out and then wash them. If you are out, or at work, I think a wet bag would probably be ideal so you can store them and then sort them out when you get home.

How do you wash them?
Rinse in cold water until the water runs clear, wash in machine, hang dry and reuse as needed. Modibodi has recommended that you avoid using fabric softener on these as it reduces effectiveness.

What do you do with the blood clots?
As much as no one wants to talk about this, I know many people will want to know what happens with the clots. Basically, it is just the same as using a disposable pad… when you go to the toilet you simply remove them and carry on about your day.

Do they draw blood away from your body?
YES. I was pleasantly surprised that the fluids were absorbed almost immediately. I didn’t feel dirty wearing the reusable underwear (one of my biggest reasons for not trying them sooner).

Do Modibodi underwear leak?
I’ll be honest, minor leakage occurred on one day but it was after wearing them all day and my period was just heavier than I realised. I couldn’t fault the underwear themselves.

If one good thing has come from Coronavirus and stock shortages in supermarkets, it is that I have been forced into trying more sustainable and reusable options in place of disposable sanitary products. While I typically try to use more environmentally friendly options, these products have always had me sitting on the fence. Until now.

The Modibodi period underwear are great to wear on their own or as a backup for extra protection with other products.

    The modibodi review was very informative and made me read reviews on them. They sound like an excellent product.

    I have light bladder leakage and always have to wear a pad like I’ve got my periods, I never thought that I would need anything after mesopause and looked forward to those days but alas it has now been replace with bladder leakage. I would love to give these Modibodi underwear ago, I think they are my answer to feeling comfortable and confident.

    I’ve been interested in trying these products since I first ever heard about them. I think it’s a great way to stay eco friendly as well as friendly to my bank account

    Years ago I stayed over at my BFs place. He had got up early for work & hopped back in bed for one last hug. When he got up there was a nice, fresh red patch on his work pants! He flipped out & I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. lol

    that’s not a lot of fun
    Modibodi would be
    a way to run free
    of embarrassment of wet underwear
    I will enjoy the running experience again without a care

    I love Modibodi so much for myself and my three daughters (eldest just started her period). Thank goodness my girls will never have my experience of having a period leakage at school as I did when I first started my period – only saved from severe embarrassment and endless teasing by two kind “popular” girls who I have never forgotten – they wrapped a jacket around my waist to hide the stain.

    I would love to win as I remember as a teenager the embarrassing moment at high school where we had light grey skirts and I had a period leak – lucky my friend had a jumper and I had to walk around with a jumper tied around my waist all day but it was embarrassing and so stressful all day. If I had these modibodi pants it never would have happened, so I would love these for myself for when out and about now to feel more relaxed and confident, but also for my daughter to use these (this time will be coming soon enough i am sure) so she never has to experience the embarrassment like that nowadays (as I can imagine now with kids, phones and social media that type of embarrassment if it happened would be even worse 🙁 ).

    I have been seeing these advertisements for over a year now on Facebook for Modibodi I have been a follower for a very long time I have done my research on these so many times and have read every single review on the Facebook page the good and the bad and I have already added some to my cart many many times over wanting to buy some but It’s hard to put the money aside to buy something for me when I know my baby or hubby needs something else. I have been wanting to buy a pair or two to try as I am 100% sick of getting rashes on my bottom from wearing pads all day every day for 7 days long. I get very heavy periods and I am worried it would leak but the proof is within the reviews and I choose to believe them and I am hoping 1 day I will either win some or put the money aside to buy a few and finally get some comfort I deserve when my monthly are due.

    tell us your most embarrassing period moment? ( I hurt my back once and had to have a water bottle on my back at work and while I was sitting at my desk the water bottle ended up leaking and covered my back, skirt, backside and filling my pad up which was already starting to get full of blood and dripped all down my legs as I rushed to the bathroom to clean myself up) Yes a lot of my female employee saw the blood and asked me what happened this was the most embarrassing moment of my life.
