Today we’re talking undies – yes, undies! But not just any old ones, these high-tech pants are part of the Modibodi range.
As you know, I share a lot of personal info on my blog. I didn’t set out to bare all (so to speak) when I started blogging but after sharing my experience of breast cancer with the world, I found it helped me to open up more.
I first heard about Modibodi a year or so ago – my friends were all raving about them! Dubbed the “original period, leak and sweat proof underwear”, at that time they didn’t seem to apply to me.
My period had ceased during chemo and hitting the gym wasn’t on my agenda at all. Fast forward to right now, that’s started to change! My hormones are (kind of) back in check and Aunt Flo has returned (um, yay) and I’ve Joined. A. Gym. I’ve even been a few times too.
I’m doing group coaching sessions because, let’s face it, I’m lazy. I need a class environment, a group to feel part of and a kick-ass trainer to…kick my ass.
But back to pants and period knickers. The coaching classes I’ve been to so far have been hard core for me. I have zero fitness or strength right now and literally everything is hard. But I can only get better, right?
I’m not a particularly self-conscious person but I do really want to take bigger steps to improving my health. I want to keep up with my energetic kids and I want to set a healthy example for them.
But how do period and bladder leak undies help with that?

For my first Modibodi order, I chose their Active Air, Sensual Boyleg and High Waist Bikini Briefs – all in Black.
The Active Air briefs are perfect for the gym (no more sweaty underwear!).
They sit on my hips with good bum-coverage – so no “hungry bum” look. The gusset is wide which also stops them moving around when I’m working out. I’ve tried other sporty style undies before and haven’t found them comfortable but the elastic around the waist on these isn’t too tight and it’s snug enough to stay in place. Note – no sweat in sight!
The Hi Waist Bikinis are particularly fab menstrual underwear for period days. I wore them on the heaviest day of my period which is the second day.
These babies are extra absorbent and for heavier period days, they’re the ultimate reassurance for no-leaks. They have a padded gusset built into the undies, at the front and back, so there’s no way any potential leaks could escape. I wondered if the padding would make the undies feel “heavy” but once on, they just feel like a really snug and comfortable pair of undies. Sheer genius!
My periods are so up and down since chemo – sometimes they’re super light and sometimes the complete opposite. It’s made me anxious because I can no longer predict how they’re going to be so these are my new undie insurance policy! At my age, a period leak in public is the last thing I’d want.
I also love that these briefs cover my tummy in full – so all that extra bloating around period time is given a slightly-sucked in hug. With a pretty lace top so I don’t feel like a nanna.
The Boyleg knickers are my faves for everyday wear as well as period proof underwear. No unsightly VPL and they’re super comfortable.
They sit on my hips and dip slightly at the front but they don’t roll down. They’re super soft and light and I love the pretty lace trim.
Sizing-wise, I’ve found them all very true to size so would recommend just shopping your usual dress size.
All three look and feel as comfortable as the best underwear I’ve bought before but having the added benefits of Modibodi magic just makes them out-perform any others.
I would love them to design a combination of the Active Air briefs and Boyleg ones.
I think for teens starting their period for the first time, this would really help them feel less anxious too. They aren’t just period undies. In fact, they’re great for ladies of all ages because these undies have a solution for teens, pregnant women, menopause and beyond.
You know what else I love about Modibodi – their website. The women on that website in particular. Because women who get periods or who go to the gym are not all THIN. We come in all different shapes and sizes and the Modibodi range caters to that. Not only that but they shout about that fact in their beautiful images of real women in all different sizes.
Modibodi undies are not a gimmick, not something new on the market to manipulate women into purchasing a product they don’t need. They’re a genius, practical and pretty product designed by women who want to empower and help other women. Thank goodness for women like that.
They work. Try them out for one day of your period and you’ll be a convert too.
