If you’ve got a vagina, you absolutely know the awkward feeling you get when you’re exercising and suddenly you can feel discharge, period blood or bladder leakages slowly slipping out of your vagina. *Shudders*
The moment you feel it your eyes instantly dart around the room looking for a loo so you can go and make sure your cute underwear doesn’t end up looking like an outtake from Carrie. However, the sigh of relief you let out when you realise it was just a little discharge is momentary cause you realise that that too will stain your cute undies, and ugh, we’ve all been there.
The solution to all of the above is Modibodi’s new 7/8 Recycled Active Leggings. These leggings are designed so that you can ditch disposable pads, tampons, liners and even undies (if you like), and feel comfortable while you workout. Made from 78% recycled material from pre-consumer factory waste means that they’re also better for the environment (read: less landfill). However, just because they’re made from recycled material doesn’t mean they’re skimping on the quality. They’re still squat proof, so you can keeping workin’ on your perky peach no worries.
The leggings have a built-in 3mm lining that is super absorbent, breathable, stain, odour, and bacteria-resistant for leak-proof action. Yep, that’s right, we’re not just talking about periods here; if you’re someone who also suffers from bladder leakages or has parts of your cycle that produce a little more discharge than others, whack these bad bois on and go your hardest.
To get the most out of your leggings, you’ll also need to clean them a little differently from your usual activewear.
Like any clothing purchase, you should always wash before wearing it for the first time, especially in your Modibodi leggings. This way it will activate the technology in the gusset for maximum absorbency in future. Post-wear, rinse them in cold water (do not soak) until the water runs clear. Then, chuck them in a cold wash, preferably in a delicates bag if you can, and hang them out to dry. Reuse and repeat.
Modibodi’s new 7/8 Recycled Active Leggings will set you back around $99, and are a good shout for new mums, fitness lovers and basically anyone with a vagina. Oh, and if you don’t already own a pair of their period undies you might as well add them to your cart too, absolute game-changer those are. Scroll to check ’em out.
