What is the right absorbency for me?

 It's really a matter for the individual to figure out how long it will take for their flow/ light-moderate incontinence to reach the maximum absorbency of the garment purchased (you will know), before having to change for a fresh pair. W

e have many of our wonderful customers comfortably wearing their Modibodi's for 8-10 hours and 12 hours even! They have been scientifically proven to last 24 hours, but we do recommend testing them out for a shorter period of time first before diving into the full day!

For new customers, we recommend trying Modibodi at home for a day to better understand how your flow works with our technology and when you may need to change for a fresh pair.
