General Product Information
Modibodi is reusable and sustainable leak-proof apparel that totally replaces the need for disposable products such as panty liners, tampons, pads and incontinence products.
Modibodi™ uses high quality, tech-savvy fabrics (like Bamboo, Merino Perform Wool and Microfibre) and the latest in breathable, antimicrobial fibres with our 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.
We also have our patent-pending Modifier Swim Technology™ found exclusively in our water-repellent, leak-proof swimwear range.
RED is for better, less messy periods. Our range includes underwear and swimwear that’s got your back, so you can be adventurous, playful and fun no matter what your day or night brings!
RED is the baby brainchild of the Modibodi team, aiming to provide for young people starting their periods and tackling periods one month at a time. The products use all the same incredible Australian patented technology which is used in Modibodi underwear. The difference with RED is that there are more patterns, prints and our we offer youth sizes.
No way, Modibodi has been rigorously and scientifically tested against all other reusable and disposable leak-proof products on the market and we are proud to say that we are the driest available. This means that providing you match our absorbency with your flow then you will remain dry and protected.
Absolutely, our products do not require the use of a tampon or menstrual cup, and offer a total replacement to disposable hygiene
1. Before your first wear, give your Modibodi and RED apparel a wash ( don’t forget to carefully remove the hygiene label).
2. Ensure your Modibodi garments are dry before use on the clothing line. If you find they are taking a little longer than your usual garments, turn them inside out to help speed up the drying process.
3. Once dry If using Modibodi for the first time, you may find it snug - that’s perfect. You will notice our garments will form nicely to your body after its first wear.
4. Wear your garments for as long as you need them, you may or may not need to change throughout the day. Most people put on a fresh pair for overnight protection.
5. After wear, simply wash like regular garments. Some people prefer to rinse before washing and you can do this simply in the laundry sink or whilst you are in the shower. For our swimwear range to ensure longevity of the fabric, please rinse well after wear.
6. Once your garment is washed and dried on the clothesline, simply reuse over and over again.
Don't worry, an accidental tumble dry will not ruin your Modibodi garment. Although we do advise refraining from using this altogether as consistent use of the tumble dryer can break down the hi-tech function over time and will result in a much shorter life span of the garment!
When choosing Modibodi underpants, swimwear or activewear, we highly recommend you choose your usual underpants, swimwear or activewear size.
When choosing RED by Modibodi underpants and swimwear please be aware it is based on youth sizes which correspond closely to ladies size:Youth 8-10 = 4 / 3XS
Youth 10-12 = 6 / 2XS
Youth 12-14 = 8 / XS
Youth 14-16 = 10 / S
These are a recommendation only and will change based on every individual body shape.
We know it can be tricky buying online, so this is why we offer new customers a 30 day risk free trial so you can purchase one garment and try it for yourself, with the reassurance if it doesn’t work for you, we will refund you the product price. Please refer to your 30 day risk free trial policy on exclusions.
Yes, the seamfree style is purposely made smaller because the garment will stretch significantly after one wear. Once you wash and wear the seamfree garment you will notice it will mould to your body fitting perfectly.
Modifier Technology™ is a built-in reusable panty liner, but so much better. It is moisture wicking, absorbent, leak proof, antibacterial, breathable, and stain resistant, and most importantly it is super comfortable. This Australian patented technology is exclusive to Modibodi, you won’t find it anywhere in the world!
Modifier Air Technology™ uses an antibacterial, one-way moisture wicking gusset that moves moisture away from your skin and keeps you feeling dry, sweat-free and eliminates odour.
Modibodi underwear combines stylishly comfortable designs and state-of-the-art patented fibre technology to give super power protection against life’s annoying but very common unmentionables – sweat, light bladder leaks, menstrual onset, menstrual overflow/spotting, discharge, odour and breast milk leaks. We guarantee your regular underwear cannot do that! When the correct absorbency product is purchased, Modibodi sustainable and leak-proof underwear can be worn as a total replacement to disposable products such as pads, panty liners and tampons.
Yes! Especially if you are one of the 1 in 2 women who experience overflow during your periods/menstrual cycle. Our Modifier Technology™ is leak-proof moisture wicking, absorbent, stain and odour resistant and is an amazing back up to ensure you never have to fear a period leak. However, when the correct absorbency product is purchased, Modibodi sustainable and leak-proof apparel can be worn as a total replacement to disposable products such as pads, panty liners and tampons.
Yes! Not many people can predict exactly when their periods will arrive, and when it’s your first period, well there’s really no chance of knowing. Modibodi & RED provides you and your daughter a stylish, super comfortable, failsafe way to avoid accidents.
Yes! If you are one of the 1 in 3 women that experiences light bladder leaks or light incontinence our Australian patented Modifier Technology™ underpants are a fantastic option for you. They are breathable, odour resistant, super absorbent, leak proof, stain resistant, and wick moisture away from your skin so you feel dry, odour free and fresh all day.
Yes! All of our products are great for sweat but in particular our Modifier Air range were made for perspiration relief only. They are antibacterial, odour resistant and the top layer is moisture wicking moving sweat away from your skin, so you can feel dry and fresh no matter how hot it gets.
Yes, but the amount of blood loss post birth can vary greatly from woman to woman. We suggest you purchase underpants from the Heavy range and use these as back up in that first week post birth. Then you may be able to use them on their own ongoing. They wont go to waste of course, as you can keep them and use for your periods once they return, or if you have post-birth bladder leaks.
Yes! If you have chosen to breastfeed your baby, then most likely you will experience messy and annoying breast milk leaks. Our nursing top that features our Modifier Technology™ provide a convenient, comfortable and effective way for you to breastfeed, replacing the need for irritating, disposable breast pads. They are breathable, antibacterial, super absorbent, have a leak proof outer layer and wick moisture away from your skin so you feel dry and fresh.
Please refer to the Product Description on the product pages for details about the materials used in our garments.
Whilst we do not have a specific lifespan, our garments will last for 6 months to 2 years, and this is dependent on the wash and care of the garments. Underwear is considered a delicate product, so the elastic and thread may get damaged with wear and tear. We will guarantee the quality and fabrics for a period of up to six (6) months and will replace faulty garments up until this time if deemed to be a major fault. After this time, it will be classified as general wear and tear. Though wear and tear may appear this will not impact the effectiveness of the Modifier Technology built into the gusset of the undergarments.
If within the 6 month warranty period you have purchased an item and believe it is faulty, please contact our Customer Happiness Team at [email protected] and provide them with a photograph of the faulty item and notify them that you purchased this item no more than 6 months ago.
Glad you asked! Modibodi apparel can be used as a great cleaning cloth when you no longer need them as protective apparel. As our garments are made to last they are not compostable.
While Modibodi covers you all day, every day, we do not advise you to use Modibodi or RED underpants for swimming due to the nature of the fibres and fabrics used. We have developed a line of swimwear that use fibres and fabrics specifically suitable for wearing in the water for light-moderate incontinence and light-moderate period days.
Please be sure to check the size, style and fit of your garments prior to wear, Modibodi products evolve over time and slight changes in design and fit may differ from your previous purchase. If you have not made a purchase in a long time, and want to ensure a better fit, please feel free to contact our customer service team at [email protected]
Our garments replace the need for disposable hygiene or act as an additional back up instead of using 2 x disposable hygiene products at once. This is great for our environment as we help to reduce the use of disposable hygiene which involves throwing highly chemically treated items into landfill after one use. The average woman will use 15,000 disposable menstrual products in her lifetime, and women with incontinence may use an additional 1,000 liners-pads per year.
By choosing to wear our patented Modifier Technology™ underpants and swimwear and you can prevent the thousands of panty liners, pads, tampons ending up in landfill or flushed into our waterways.
By choosing to wear Modifier Technology™ maternity singlet you can also stop on average around 1,000 nursing pads (based on 8 pads per day used for 3 months) ending up in landfill for each child you breastfeed.
As long as cared for properly, our garments can be used and worn just as long as regular underwear. In our Classic, Sensual and Active ranges over 85% of our garment is made from natural fabric such as merino and bamboo.
Modibodi garments can be washed with regular clothing in a laundry bag thus preventing hand washing and the additional waste of water.
Modibodi works closely with a number of suppliers outside of Australia that comply with fair work standards and wages. The STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is a worldwide consistent, independent testing and certification system for raw, semi-finished, and finished textile products at all processing levels, as well as accessory materials used.All our merino wool is sourced from ANZ farms that do not perform mulesing on their sheep or who have ceased mulesing sheep.
Modibodi™ uses high quality natural fabrics and breathable tech-savvy blends with the latest in antimicrobial fibres to create a highly comfortable, functional garment
We use an antimicrobial treatment that does not use nano-technology, and is OEKO-Tek approved and registered with the Environmental Protection Authority to eliminate bacteria and odour, which is necessary to maintain hygienic freshness.
You can find more information on how our technology works here.
Modibodi is an Australian owned business, our Founder is a female and mother. All of our garments are designed right here in Australia. However, to accommodate the volume of our orders and some of the techniques required, we produce all of our garments offshore.
We sure do! Our new vegan range includes leak-proof underwear in two absorbencies as well as our swimwear range and leak-proof leggings for the driest workout you can imagine. You can shop the vegan range here.
Modibodi underwear can be a total replacement for disposable feminine hygiene products (panty liners, pads, tampons) OR can work in conjunction with them. It’s all about knowing your flow, and which absorbency level suits you best. You can find out more information on our different absorbency levels here.
It's really a matter for the individual to figure out how long it will take for their flow/ light-moderate incontinence to reach the maximum absorbency of the garment purchased (you will know), before having to change for a fresh pair. We have many of our wonderful customers comfortably wearing their Modibodi's for 8-10 hours and 12 hours even! They have been scientifically proven to last 24 hours, but we do recommend testing them out for a shorter period of time first before diving into the full day!
For new customers, we recommend trying Modibodi at home for a day to better understand how your flow works with our technology and when you may need to change for a fresh pair.

Our fabric is made from nylon spandex and the gusset is a polyester blend, due to the nature of our technology we do not share any further information on what makes our product so unique.
UPF stands for Ultraviolet Protection Factor and is similar to SPF ratings used in suncreams. Garments with a UPF of 50 only allow 1/50th of the UV radiation falling on the garment to pass through it. The highest UPF rating a garment can be assigned is 50+, a piece in this range is determined as providing “excellent” protection from UV radiation.
All Modibodi Swimsuits are rated UPF 50+. This is not a replacement for sunscreen and additional sun protection should always be used.
We like the waves as much as floating on a pink flamingo in the pool. Yes, our Swim range is beach AND pool safe! Just rinse after use to ensure Modibodi swim can join you for every beach and pool trip!
Both styles will accomodate up to a size DD. They also come with removable cup inserts. We have tested our swimsuits for comfort and support on a wide range of bodies and have received wonderful feedback!
Fact- The first disposable pad/liner/tampon you ever wore still exists and will take 500 years to breakdown! Not only are you reducing landfill by not using disposable pads, panty-liners and tampons, our Modibodi Swim range is vegan and the Modibodi and RED range use sustainable and renewable fibres such as bamboo.
While we can’t share our proprietary information on what makes this technology so awesome, our patent pending Modifier Swim Technology comprises of dry-fast water repellent fabric, fights bacteria and odour, catches sneaky bladder leaks and is perfect for light period days!
Modibodi swimwear is designed for both light periods and bladder leaks.
Modibodi swimsuits can act as a total replacement for light-moderate sized bladder leaks e.g. sneezes, cough, unexpected little leaks.
If you plan to use your Modibodi swimsuit for period protection whilst swimming, they are best used alone on light days and spotting period days. So, if you have a standard period flow then toward the middle to second half of your period cycle. Modibodi swimsuits are also great as a back-up for periods on heavier days, and to prevent leaking on clothes and towels, or worn to prevent getting caught out when you are expecting your period to arrive. Once worn in the water, the garment will become wet inside and out. But, thanks to the quick-drying fabrics we have sourced from our range, you will be dry very quickly upon exiting the water!
Caring For Your Garments
No, if cared for correctly, your Modibodi garments won’t smell. If left soaking for more than a few hours, your underwear can end up smelling mildewy and musty. To remove smell your underwear has, please dilute some white vinegar in a thin layer of water 1:3 (just enough to cover your underwear) and soak your underwear for 20 minutes. You can then place them in the wash and add some more vinegar to the wash load 1:5. This should combat any current odour present in your undies. You can also use eucalyptus in your wash load to further combat this.
Modibodi products are machine washable. So wash preferably on a gentle cycle, cold machine wash and hang to dry for a sun-kissed feel.
Hang your maternity singlet from the bra straps to avoid stretching the fabric
Use a laundry bag to wash your Modibodi garments. Natural fibres wash well, but don’t like zippers!
No fabric softeners and strong detergents eg. stain removers, please! It breaks down the hi-tech function of our garments and also reduces the durability of the fabrics and trims, so they won’t last as long.
Do not soak: The reason being is because soaking can cause the potential thinning down and effect the efficiency/function of our antimicrobial treatment. Squeezing the deposits under the running water is much more effective, as soaking does not necessarily remove all the gusset deposit fully. It is more effective to rinse under running water and then place them into the washing machine.
Once dry, store your Modibodi garments in a dry laundry bag for extra protection (just like your winter jumpers) – as they are made from natural fibres such as wool, little nasty bugs such as silverfish do like to take a bite!
Our garments can last for 2 years and even longer, however this is dependent on the wash and care of the garments. As underwear is considered a delicate product, we strongly recommend following our care instructions to ensure you get the most wear out of your underwear.
They sure are! Bleach free zone here. Our patented technology means every leak and odour is absorbed and won’t leak through!
This could be due to Acidity and our Modifier Technology natural fibers may not be compatible with your body chemistry. We now sell the Vegan Bikini which uses a modified version of the Modifier Technology (no wool) which we believe might be more suitable for you. Please connect with our customer team who can assist you further.

Domestic and family violence is the principlel cause of homelessness for women and their children across the globe. There are thousands of women and young girls living in shelters cross borders, who have little money and consequently cannot afford to purchase feminine hygiene products that most of us take for granted. These women and girls are forced to protect themselves from their monthly period and/or bladder weakness with bits of newspaper, or bulky rags.
Modibodi’s Give a Pair Program aims to provide these women with Modibodi underwear that is sustainable and reusable to empower these women at the times they need it.
Every $25AUD equals one virtual pair of Modibodi underwear. For every ‘virtual pair’ voucher purchased, Modibodi will donate two pairs of physical underwear to women’s shelters and women in need across Australia throughout the year.
