How does our period swimwear *actually* work?

Our new period swimwear collection looks and feels just like regular bathers, but it also absorbs 8 tampons of period blood without leaking. Mind-blowing, right? To unpack exactly how the technology behind our leak-proof, water-resistant swimwear works, we asked Modibodi Product and Innovation Director, Charissa Lanham.   

Period swimwear sounds like magic. How does it work?

Our patent-pending swimwear technology has a two-layer lining. Layer one consists of a uniquely designed Modibodi fabrication that can hold between 10 – 40 ml of period blood without leaking, (depending on the style and absorbency you choose). Layer two is a waterproof layer that sits between the absorbency layer and the outer layer for an extra barrier of protection and peace of mind. The outer fabric has a water repellent treatment applied to add an extra layer of protection from leaks.   

So, one layer absorbs moisture but it’s also water repellent. How is water able to escape when we’re wet, but not blood or pee? 

The secret is all in the fit. Our swimwear needs to fit snugly against your body at the leg opening to ensure the leakproof gusset technology can do its thing while getting in and out of the water. 

Will it leak when I stand up or get out of the water? 

Nope! We’ve worked hard to make sure that if your swimwear is fitted correctly, the waterproof barrier works to keep your absorbency layer from leaking.
