Modibodi is known for its range of comfy, cool, period-proof underwear - and now they've launched a brand new range of period swimwear. Made from 78% recycled nylon, it's made to be sustainable, without compromising comfort, style or performance.

The leak-proof bottoms are designed to be worn during light to moderate periods, and to protect against bladder leaks. They can hold up to 10mls of liquid, which is the equivalent to two tampons or two teaspoons. Made from innovative technology that absorbs liquid, they're also UV50+ rated for superior sun protection.


And they get rave reviews: "I wore the Modibodi swimwear to a pool party with my friends and NO ONE knew I was wearing period swimwear," says one woman. "They're amazing."

Here's our pick of the range:

Recycled Swimwear Brazilian Brief, $42.50

This cheeky cut style comes in four different colours, including orange, animal print, black and green. They are built with a fast-drying lining to absorb periods, bladder leaks, discharge and sweat. The fabric is chlorine-resistant and UV50+ rated, and they come in sizes 8 -18.

Reversible Recycled Swimwear Crop Top, $55

This comfortable style is designed to suit a range of shapes and sizes. It has a flattering square neckline, and is wire-free so it's flexible and doesn't dig in. It's made from the same innovative recycled fabric as the rest of the range, and is designed to be worn with the period and pee-proof swimwear briefs, or alone as a crop top. It comes in two patterns; orange and black, or green and leopard, and is available in sizes 8-18.

Tips for effective use:

1. Wash before wearing them for the first time. This will activate the technology in the gusset for maximum absorbency.

2. Rinse them cold water after use until the water runs clear.

3. Cold wash in a delicates bag. Don't use fabric softener as this can reduce its function.

4. Hang dry.
