How Modi Bodi period pants are made and how they work:
Made super-slim – only 3mm thick – brand new modifier technology can hold up to 20ml or up to 4 tampons worth.
- Top Layer: Soft bamboo wicks away moisture, fights bacteria and stops smells, so you stay dry and fresh.
- Middle Layer: Merino Perform Wool. Safely absorbs fluid and locks it away.
- Bottom Layer: Waterproof protection so you’re super secure from leaks.
The range of absorbencies mean you will be protected from everything from light bladder leaks and sweat, as well as periods and heavier leaks.
How to use Modibodi in 4 simple steps:
Rinse. Wash. Dry. Repeat. It's that easy! And safe. And comfortable. And a gazillion times better for the planet than disposable tampons or pads.
Step 1. Wash your Modibodi before wearing them for the first time. This will activate the technology in the gusset for maximum absorbency.
Step 2. Rinse in cold water after use <30° Do not soak, just rinse until the water runs clear.
Step 3. Cold wash (now or later) In a delicates bag is even better (we sell mesh bags here)
Step 4. Hang dry. Reuse. Repeat! Go you eco warrior!
Step 5. Do not use fabric softener. This reduces the product’s function.
Let’s face it, periods are natural, normal and part of daily life – and yet for some they’re a source of stress, shame or stigma. Modibodi isn’t just about selling leak-proof underwear, it’s about giving it too. And so, in 2021, they’re ramping up their efforts to end period poverty through their Give a Pair program.
The Indonesian province of West Nusa Tenggara is one of the poorest in South East Asia, with significant clean water and sanitation challenges. Modibodi has partnered with Plan International and the United Nations WASH programme to help improve community health and hygiene. The pilot programme supplied 300 women with 1000 pairs in 2020, and they’ll supply underpants to a further 4,000 women in 2021.
It's estimated that over 100 billion menstrual disposables end up in landfill annually. Periods can be uncomfortable and wasteful, but the way you manage them doesn't have to be.
