A day at the beach or by the pool on a period can be tough. The sun may be beaming but the boobs hurt, legs ache, and the skin... well let’s not draw more attention to that. Not to mention, the thought of leaking or a flashing your tampon as you attempt the slow-motion Kelly Rohrbach walk from Baywatch to your towel.
You’ve then got the hassle of having to find a bathroom (if there is one) to regularly keep it fresh and under control down there. We feel you – periods suck.
Today though is your lucky day because girrrl, Modibodi has just created the perfect solution. Fresh on the market, these bikinis briefs are the new must-have period product. Alongside its Sleep Shorts and Gym Leggings, they don’t only look great, but feel great, too.
No more having to adjust your bikini in the sea or asking your girls to take a quick look to see if ‘it’s all good’ and to give the super obvious nod of approval. No need even to wear a tampon. Sorry what? Yes, that’s right. Not only do these recycled bikini briefs prevent leaks, but depending on your flow, you can actually go for a swim without using a tampon. And, we don't need to remind you that it's a huge relief on the bank account and the environment.
Do you know how many disposables and plastics end up in the ocean – the very place you’re dipping your toes in? Let’s just say, too many. Joining Modibodi’s movement and feeling confident in these eco-friendly recycled bikinis, made from 78 per cent pre-consumer nylon, can be your way of giving back.
The bikini briefs are super comfortable to wear whilst protecting you from period and bladder-leaks. Whether you are tanning, floating in the sea or doing a bit of beach volleyball, the bikinis boast the innovative Modifier Swim Technology. This means they are absorbent, stain and odour-resistant, which is perfect for spotting or when you have discharge on light to moderate days. Oh, and they can hold up to two tampons of your flow.
The recycled bikinis feature a retro high-rise waist and have a thick supportive waistband, great as a classic staple for the summer wardrobe. They also have a fast-drying absorbent lining, are chlorine-resistant, and provide UV50+ protection. And, before you ask whether they are reusable, these bikinis simply need a quick wash (without fabric softener or stain remover) post swim, and hung out to dry.
Can't wait to get your sun-kissed hands on them? We’ll see you at the checkout.
