Being on your period sucks. There, we said it. Not only do you feel bloated and in pain, but your skin breaks out, your hair is greasier, your boobs hurt and you're grumpy as hell. It's just a whole mess of emotions and stress.
To make matters worse, you've got tampons, pads or cups to contend with, plus the dreaded fear of turning your bed into a scene from Carrie overnight. Ugh.
If you haven't discovered period pants yet, where have you been? The bandwagon has well and truly left the station, with loads of women swearing by them to ease their time-of-the-month-suffering. Not only do they help prevent leaks, but many women can actually go without tampons or pads, saving hassle, money, and helping the environment, too.
If you need a little more protection overnight, hate the chafe or just fancy trying a different style, these will be right up your street.
The Sleep Shorts are ultra-comfy, with a concealed waistband so they won't dig in while you're sleeping. Whether you snooze on your back, side or front, the Maxi-24hrs technology provides ultimate protection. The breathable Modifier Technology™ – a super slim, super absorbent, stain and bacteria-fighting lining - means you'll feel clean and fresh until the morning. To be honest, we can't see ourselves ever taking these off; they're even great for when Aunt Flow isn't in town. Although they're a new product, they're already bringing in all 5* reviews - keep reading for our review.
The Anti-Chafing Shorts are perfect for women who love their shape but dread the chafe - something SO many of us have to deal with. When you're out and about, the last thing you want to deal with is stinging legs and red bumps. Especially if you're on your period. These shorts are a two-in-one product, designed to stop the chafe and give you period protection with built-in Moderate-Heavy absorbent technology.
What's more, they're reusable. Modibodi products simply need to be washed (without fabric softener or stain remover) and hung out to dry. Not only are you making your own life easier, saving money and feeling great, but you're doing your bit for the planet, too.
Tried and tested
To find out if these pants really live up to the hype, Deputy Commercial Content Editor, Jade Moscrop, put a pair to the test.
"Having been a fan of Modibodi's period pants for a while now, I was excited to hear about the new super-soft sleep shorts. I'm a big fan of wearing cycling shorts to bed (thank you, ASOS) so these are right up my street.
"Upon opening the packaging, I was amazing at just how soft they are. There's a fair amount of padding around the lady garden area, which feels similar to a pad. I worried it might feel like I was wearing a nappy, but it's barely noticeable once they're on.
"I followed the size guide on site, and had no issues upon trying them on - they're a perfect fit.
"They aren't restrictive, so don't cut into your stomach or thighs - a real annoyance when you want a great night's sleep. The padding goes far enough forward and backwards so you know you're protected, no matter which position you prefer to sleep in.
"I'm pleased to announce that there were no leaks, and they leave you feeling clean and fresh when you wake up. No more pad or tampon horror, hoorah. They're so comfortable, I love that they can be reused after washing, and I might have to invest in several pairs so they can become my new night-time uniform, whether I'm on my period, or not.
"They are pricey, but when you add up the cost of pads or tampons for a couple of years, I think you're actually saving money. Plus, the quality is top-notch - you can tell they're well-made. I'm a convert!"
