A woman stands in her kitchen holding a cup of coffee in a white t-shirt and red period-proof Modibodi underwear with a towel wrapped around her head, as if she'd just got out of the shower.

If you’re anything like us, you’re using time in self-isolation trying out epic new things like baking banana bread, hitting up virtual silent discos in your living room, and wearing socks as shoes. Our latest self-isolation obsession? Modibodi’s innovative underwear that’s chic as anything and perfect for hanging in at home. 

Championing a sustainable and reliable solution for women everywhere, Australian label Modibodi are the legends behind innovative period and leak-proof underwear—and we reckon there’s no better time to give them a go than at home in self-iso. 

Astonishingly, a woman uses 17,000 pads and tampons in her lifetime—that’s a whole lot of long-lasting waste going into landfill, not to mention these single-use products are expensive to buy in the first place. And even though underwear is an everyday essential, up until now designs have largely focused on aesthetics as opposed to function to support women. But, thankfully, underwear label Modibodi has come through with an innovative solution that considers both.  

Every pair of Modibodi underwear is washable, reusable and designed to replace pads and tampons as a more sustainable alternative or be worn with tampons and cups for extra protection. Basically they feel like your regular underwear—but they do so much more.

Modibodi uses tech-savvy fabrics (like Bamboo, Merino Perform Wool and Microfibre) and the latest in breathable, antimicrobial fibres with their 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. 

And unlike the original line, Modibodi’s vegan range is made without the use of merino wool, meaning it's completely animal-friendly. Developed from bamboo and cotton, it features all the same benefits of the original collection including moisture-wicking technology, microbial properties and high absorbency levels.

Despite Modibodi having a proven track record with plenty of reviews, for many women, there's often still a big question mark over how the underwear work and if they’re truly reliable. Changing up a comfortable routine can be a challenge but the good news is that self-isolation is the perfect time to get started and give Modibodi a go from the comfort of your own home.  

If you're still not convinced, Modibodi offers a 30-day risk-free trial, contactless delivery, free shipping on orders over $100 and a six-month product guarantee. Plus if you're a first time customer and sign up to their mailout they’ll treat you to 10 per cent off. 

So, why not use your self-isolation to treat yourself and the planet while saving yourself some serious coin on single-use disposables. Shop Modibodi’s range of powerful period products here and your future self will thank you.
