Thanks to Modibodi, period-proof running shorts are now a thing

Words by Tori Mathison

Good news for our Earth and our ovaries.

In high school, having my period meant sitting on the sidelines during PE class. It meant sneaking pads and tampons into the crevices of my schoolbag. It meant no swimming, no sports, no sex and no cute clothes.

It’s safe to say that menstrual stigma and science has come a looong way since then, and we’re constantly being exposed to much more positive and sustainable options for that time of the month.

As someone who used to skip the gym every time I hit ‘shark week’, I was delighted to hear about Modibodi’s period-proof activewear

In 2013, Kirsty Chong launched her underwear label Modibodi in response to sustainability issues surrounding women’s personal hygiene products. Since then, Modibodi has established itself as one of the leading period-proof underwear labels. 

Its latest release, a pair of period-proof running shorts, represents everything that we love about the label. With a two-tampon tolerance, they’re perfect for a moderate to medium flow, as well as minor bladder leaks or heavy discharge. 

Designed with comfortability at the forefront, sizes range from extra small through to extra extra large for the perfectly desired fit. Plus, the shorts feature a discrete zip pocket, perfect for keys or a credit card. 

The product’s functionality is credited to Modibodi’s trademark moisture-wicking, antimicrobial and breathable fibres that the brand spent years researching and perfecting, with the sole goal of comfortability and sustainability.

The activewear collection also features period-proof three-quarter length leggings and active briefs, in case shorts aren’t really your vibe. 

In line with the label’s compassionate philosophy, they also offer new customers a 30-day trial. So, if they’re not quite right for you, you are entitled to a full refund on one piece.

Better yet, every purchase is also lovingly delivered in compostable bags made from biodegradable materials.
