High waist bikini overnight/heavy
Love these briefs, super absorbent. I was very unsure at first but had read some great reviews so i thought why not. So i purchased myself and my teen daughter a pair too. She was very nervous on her first use but was pleasantly surprised with these also.
The leakproof underwear that leaks
My 12 year old had been using this product for the last 3 months since she got her period. Still only light flow but despite putting on a fresh pair of the womens heavy/overnight ones before bed they leaked onto her clothing and bedding. When I questioned this by email I was told that they will leak if there is heavy flow or a surge in flow and that she should change them. I thought the whole idea was they were leak proof and no bloodstains on clothing and bedding, looks like that is only as long as you dont bleed very much at once. Looks like they arent as good as they claim and pads need to be worn anyway.
I find they are only useful for backup on heavy days. I still use pads. If you are a heavy bleeder u may only get a couple of hours use before feeling uncomfortable and they start to leak. They are helpful for sleeping but I still wear a pad with them. Probably works well for girls who have light periods.

A little disappointed
I bought 6 pairs of the sensual high waist bikini (lace top). Im trying to live more waste free and was excited to use these as a backup to my Juju cup instead of disposable liners. Sadly despite very careful washing using gentles bags and following the instructions, the elastic lace is coming into holes and fraying on almost every pair. Also, they leak. Even wearing my cup, the small leaks that escape on the heavy days now seems to spread and escape the seams. Unknowingly I was walking around with blood on my shorts at the supermarket. Im 33 y...ears old and NEVER had this happen before. I want to love them and Ill keep using them with caution, but at $30 a pair I do feel quite let down that they haven't performed as promised. Anyone who experiences a smelly residue on theirs, try a gentle rinse in Earth Choice Eucalyptus Wool Wash prior to adding to your machine. I found it really really helps.
Do not take this product for travelling.
The products did not work for me. Blood went through onto my pants. The underwear will very stinks after few months. Not suitable for world travellers at all for washing that can be extra work for you plus it takes extras time to dry up.
The reviewer stated that an incentive was offered for this review
Didn't work :(
I really wanted to be able to use this product as I loved the idea but unfortunately it just didn't work for me. I ordered the sensual heavy/overnight. The elastic around the thighs cut into my thighs - I have never found this with other underwear. It was quite painful. And when I tried wearing the heavy/overnight on my heaviest day I bled through into my clothing in less than 2 hours :( I'm glad I didn't try it at night! If it wasn't so uncomfortable around the sides I would wear it with a tampon. What a shame such a great idea but didn't work...for me in practice. It would be helpful if they also gave dimensions of the underpants themselves rather than just the hip and waist body measurements so you could compare them against your existing underpants. But with the tight elastic digging in to the bikini line area even going up a size didn't help, it was so tight. The elastic at the top was soft lace and didn't cause any discomfort Customer service was good and they were good about giving a refund. I hope it works for other people! I was a bit concerned about the microfibre fabric and the environmental impact of microfibre particles going into waterways through washing so I didn't try any products with that fabric. I guess all man-made materials add plastic fibres to our oceans and waterways. Fully bamboo is much better. But the product was wrapped in cardboard which was great. It would be great if it extended out to the sides a bit at the base so if you needed to wear it with a pad it could catch the overflow leakage at the sides of the pad - if you wanted to use it that way
I’m only wearing them instead of liners for the occasional bladder leakage, so they have not had to deal with much. As another reviewer said there is a smell which seems to occur as my body warms up. Doesn’t happen with pant liners, I’m reluctant to wear them now as I’m conscious that other people can smell it. Sad because I wanted to stop wearing liners!
Period undies as a cup backup - phenomenal
Wonderful Australian brand that not only openly talks about women’s menstruation and promotes the reduction of waste but their products have changed my life. I no longer hate my period

Easy online ordering. Sizing true to size. What a wonderful product. Great for the environment and even better for me comfort wise. No more pads needed. I always feel protected, even in the heavier 1st few days and overnight. I had an issue with some stitching coming away and they were replaced without issue, so great customer service too. I'm a very happy customer.
I have used, tampons, pads, cups & now modibod. I stopped using tampons due to the uncomfortable feeling of them after my 3rd birth & they just didn’t seem to hold enough fluid due to me having endo & losing alot in my 1st 3 days I would almost always leak & have to wear a pad just in case…..Then I started using just a pad but would often sense a smell….Then i got onto the cups & I still had to wear a pad due to leaking with it aswell. Now I am on modibod, 1st time this month & have actually been shocked by the absorbency! My cup on an average ...day was usually nearly at the 30ml mark so was a little nervous my mod/heavy sensual high waisted purchase wouldn’t hold it all BUT it has! So thankful for Modibod & wished I had these as a teenager/young mum & so glad I had the confidence to give Modibod a go. I will definitely be advising friends/nieces & most importantly when the time comes my own daughter to go with Modibod rather than a synthetic version when it’s that time of the month. thank you x

Foul smelling underwear!
Website was Easy enough to find what I wanted, however not satisfied with the underwear, the quality is great apart from a foul odour. The odour is most offensive and is not me as I don’t have a problem with other sanitary items.. maternity singlet is fabulous as is the design and fit of the underwear just a really putrid smell.
Sensual high waist bikini heavy leak after 5 months
I had purchased the sensual high waist bikini heavy absorbency underwear in April order number. These have now stopped working and leak at the seams. I have followed all wash instructions but they have still broken down. I am very disappointed with the quality of these underwear as they did not last long at all. The seam free bikini quality is much better and had no problems just be aware of the overnight ones.
Context: I currently have an Implanon birth control implant, or “the rod”. It’s one of the only birth control options available to me, but the unpredictable/lengthy periods are frustrating. One time I had nonstop spotting for FOUR MONTHS. I don’t like tampons or menstrual cups when the bleeding is only light, but wearing pads and liners constantly for months on end feels gross and definitely not sexy.
Anyway, modibodi undies are AMAZING. Even on a very heavy bleeding day, you can easily forgot you’re even on your period. They don’t feel damp a...nd gross. They are amazingly absorbent. I’ve bought a tonne of them in different absorbencies and I think I’m just going to wear them all the time, they’re comfy to wear even if you’re not bleeding so it’s the perfect way to deal with unpredictable on and off spotting/bleeding. Highly recommended!!
Customer service is a joke
Undies poor quality, leaked after 4 hours and I am definitely not a heavy bleeder. But they do fit great and are comfortable. For undies themselves I would give 3 stars. BUT customer service is absolutely APPALLING. I had lots of faith in the product based on the reviews so went ahead and purchased 7 pack bundle. I was concious that 30 day money back guarantee only applied to one pair so I tested it out leaving the rest 6 packs untouched in case I wanted to return. After being a bit disappointed with the product I decided I wanted to return the...whole lot. Contacted them, they’ve been VERY slow to reply and finally after numerous canned responses that made no sense they told me I will not be able to return the bundle pack for a refund because apparently you cannot. Nowhere on the product page does it say that!!!!! Besides, why would the bundle pack not be refundable like the rest of the undies? It makes absolutely no sense. Because they are heavily discounted? So what, you get your product back, I get my money back. Everyone’s happy. Anyways, I will never deal with this company again, they do not care about their customers and they just want to push their product. Extremely disappointing.
Great concept, but the quality needs improvement.
Both the seamfree (heavy absorbency) undies started to sag (around the legs and butt) after a short while, which made them feel uncomfortable and bulky. The seams along the top have also started to fray. Also, all of the undies I’ve purchased (2x seamfree and 2x cotton) have started to get holes in the gusset after roughly 10 months of use (so... only 10 wears) and they’ve also started to smell too (even though they’re washed thoroughly). Having said that, I would purchase again as the protection and peace of mind they provide is excellent... although if there was another Aussie brand that offered a similar product of better quality, I’d definitely switch. Needs improvement.

This is just for those interested in purchasing the swimwear. On their website it says they are leakproof. But in an email I received the company they say they are not leakproof but are only as a backup to a "menstrual cup"?? So before you spend maybe consider this and perhaps the company could rephrase their words on the website. As I bought them on the basis of the claim to being leakproof. This is only for the swimwear I have not purchased any other products.
Only one problem
My first Modibodi order was a black mixed absorption 7 piece set, they arrived the following week, fit perfectly, looked good and were easy to clean. My second purchase was a Vegan 7 piece and again they arrived quickly, fit perfectly, looked good and are easy to clean. My second order came in brown paper packages rather than the previous plastic packets. The only problem is that my first set started to smell and bugs began eating them, this did not happened to my vegan set thankfully
Product needs further development
I thought about buying these undies for a good 18 months and heard good things about them before throwing about $90 out to order 3 pairs . I bought a cotton version , which have been fine , but with really light absorbency capacity. I also bought some 'seam-free' polyamide/elastine blend undies and after one round of having a period, they are such a drag I want to throw them out, they are sagging and so are chaffing , even after a walk down the street : (
I feel like the whole period underwear thing is a bit of a joke . The other issue with ...them, is that the fabric on the absorbency pad is black , so how the heck can you tell if you ever clean them properly or not ? They also take a while to dry, especially the heavy absorbency one , so you need to really buy the 7 pairs they recommend , which is mega expensive , if you are going to avoid washing and wearing damp underwear throughout your cycle . What I don't understand , is why the absorbency pad wasn't released as an actual pad , so then you can just clip them onto your favourite , strong , sag-proof undies .

Terrible customer service
I purchased a maternity singlet but was between sizes so sized up and when it arrived it was too big. I had to email and facebook messenger twice and it took nearly a week before I got any response regarding exchanging the singlet. I was told no as it was on "sale". That sale was a first time customer 10% off code, ridiculous! it was a $70 singlet. I offered to pay the 10% difference to allow me to exchange it for the smaller size but they just haven't bothered to response to my messages!
Great concept, but deteriorates and its performance is just OK
I bought 8 pairs of ModiBodi underwear and one maternity singlet when I was pregnant. I live green and clean as often as possible, so I love the concept of eliminating the need for pantyliners and pads. However, the top layer of the core started deteriorating within a month. I sewed them up and they split again. They still work okay with holes (the other layers of absorption are in tact) but $29 a pop is expensive for undies that deteriorate and perform at an average level. (The maternity singlet however, is excellent, and was my summer staple).... I am open to trying them again if the quality has improved, especially because it’s an Aussie business, but for now I am looking at international brands. Pros Easy to navigate website and good range Super Comfortable Easy to clean in the wash

Questions & Answers
Using my modibodi underwear for the second time and they smell really bad! I have followed the care instructions perfectly and I know its not me as I've never had this issue before. So disappointed since I love the concept and paid good money for them. What can I do to eliminate the smell?
Hi Emily, thanks for your question. If you have followed the care instructions, rinsing thoroughly directly after use, you shouldn't be experiencing a smell. If you didn't wash straight after, also ensure the underwear isn't left wet before washing, let them air after rinsing. Some customers find that they experience a smell when the underwear hasn't been completely dried after washing also, so ensure you wait until they are completely dry before wearing them again. If you still experience a smell, you could try pouring half a cup of vinegar into the washing load or using an antibacterial, non-bleach, detergent.
Thank you for your reply. I've definitely followed the correct care instructions but I'll give them a wash with vinegar and see how I go. Thanks.
Hi Emily, I just used mine in case of incontinence when sneezing, way past periods etc, but wanted to stop using pant liners. The smell was off putting though, my underwear was always completely dry, I often left it out on the line because they do take longer to dry. I even washed them in vinegar, but to no avail, the smell persists. I have given up wearing them except in circumstances where I feel no one is going to smell them, usually just round the house. I bought a bundle pack, 3 are in my draw unopened. Wish they had worked for me!
Hi - can you please advise me whether the absorbency of the teen range is as high as the ladies range? My daughter is having her first period and it is very heavy so I want to be sure we purchase the right product for her to use.
I received my order yesterday and when I opened one of the pkts realised I had ordered the wrong ones. How do I go about returning the other 3pairs of knickers and ordering the correct ones??
please contact the team at firstname.lastname@example.org and they would be happy to help you.
