What is the right absorbency for me?Updated a year ago
The right absorbency for you will depend on your flow.
It’s really a matter for the individual to determine which absorbency is most suitable to their period and/or incontinence needs.
Our products have been scientifically proven for safe wear for up to 24 hours, but we do recommend testing them first to understand your flow and the absorbency option you’ve chosen.
For new customers, we recommend trying Modibodi at home for a day to better understand how your flow works with our technology, and for you to understand the key indicators for needing to change over to a fresh pair.
A helpful tip for changing over is when the gusset/padding begins to feel wet. Our top layer technology is designed to keep you feeling dry as it absorbs the liquid into the middle layers. The top layer will start to feel wet when the middle of the gusset has reached capacity, indicating the need to change to a fresh pair.
