Modibodi RED Period Underwear for Tweens & Teens

Product trials star rating

Tried and tested by Kidspot parents

4.8 out of 5: Kidspot parents/teens were pleased with Modibodi RED period underwear and would recommend them to their friends and family.

Modibodi RED’s signature Hipster Boyshort style, with MAX absorbency for very heavy periods, overnight, or up to 24 hour* wear, provides full protection from the front-to-back waistband, which means zero fear of leaks to clothes, PJs or sheets!

Designed to completely replace pads and tampons, the Hipster Boyshort in Maxi-24hrs absorbency is your new best friend!

* Patent pending Maxi-24hrs tech has been tested to hold up to 50ml per day, the average woman loses 2 to 3 tablespoons or 30-50ml of blood over 5 days.


What does it feel like wearing them?

Just like regular underwear! The tech-enabled absorbent gusset was designed to be comfy and discreet, never bulky or heavy. Just pop a pair on and go!

Do I wear these with a tampon, cup or pad?

Modibodi are a complete replacement for other leak management products. There is no need to use anything else in conjunction with them, even on your heaviest days. With absorbency options ranging from super light through to maxi-24hrs, you can feel confident every day, flow or no flow!

What size am I?

We recommend referring to the Size Guide here to find your fit.

Do I need to wash them before wear?

Yes, we recommend putting them through the wash before the first time you wear them to help to activate the technology in the gusset.

Care guide

Step 1. Wash before wear! We recommend popping them in the wash before the first wear to activate the tech in the gusset.
Step 2. Rinse in cold water after use <30° Do not soak, just rinse until the water runs clear!
Step 3. Cold wash (now or later). In a delicates bag is even better!
Step 4. Hang dry. Reuse. Repeat! Go you eco warrior!
Step 5. Hold the fabric softener. This reduces the product’s function!

We gave 15 members with a tween or teen the opportunity to trial and review Modibodi RED Period Underwear. See their photos below and scroll down to read more reviews.

Wow what a game changer!! My 13 year old daughter loves her Modibodi Red period underwear! She experiences very heavy periods and usually changes her pads up to 4 x a day and has sadly had to deal with leaks before. Since using the 24 hr Modibodi Red underwear she has not had to change underwear during the day and pads are a thing of the past! She also feels 100% confident when playing netball now.


Complete game changer. [Our teen] used to wear both a tampon with a pad for security! She said she slept all night and was surprised to see there was no leakage in the morning. She decided to try with her school uniform and has since asked we purchase more so she never has to use a pad again. We are very happy and are looking forward to spending way less on sanitary items. The security of not leaking on heavy days gives her peace of mind she won’t be subject to any embarrassing moments.


These have been a game changer. So much stress and anxiety has been removed from our daily lives so thank you so much for the opportunity to trial these As a mum, I am super impressed with how easy they are to clean and how quickly they dry and to see my daughter smiling on period days and watch her confidence return has been an emotional experience.

    My almost 11 year old got her first period 2 months ago and is really struggling with being unhappy and uncomfortable using sanitary pads. She is incredibly worried and paranoid about changing them at school and that people will notice. I think these would be a fantastic option to look at for her as she even struggles to discuss her periods with me. A size 10-12 would be perfect. Thank you.

  2. queenbean 19/05/2021 at 11:08 pm

    My Miss almost 11 is new to the world of periods and is finding it all pretty daunting. Tampons are intimidating and pads are intrusive. I think she would be overjoyed to know there is another far more comfortable option, and we would love to have the opportunity to trial Modibodi RED Period Underwear. Thank you!

    • queenbean 19/05/2021 at 11:08 pm

      Forgot to say, she is size 10-12 🙂

  3. Cherubnz 19/05/2021 at 3:49 pm

    My daughter has just started her period at 11 and she would love to trial these to see how they are at school and to save her embarrassment. Size 14/16 would be perfect for her please 🙂

  4. Sin Hooi Lee 19/05/2021 at 3:39 pm

    I would love my teenage girl of 15 to try this product because she always feel struggle of keeping her underwear clean after the day or overnight and she would be youth size 12-14. Thank you.

  5. DominicAmore 19/05/2021 at 1:15 pm

    My daughter would love to try these. She’s a 12-14 youth size. She gets really paranoid when her period is due and worries it will come without her realizing. At least if she had some of these she could wear them on the lead up to it to lesson her worries.

  6. michele 19/05/2021 at 10:35 am

    My daughter would really like to trial these please. Both her and her friends routinely wear crop shorts over their underwear (partly to deal with period issues I think) so these look much better and would hopefully provide that reassurance while being less bulky etc. She would be a 12-14.
    Thank you

    We would love to trial the Modibodi period underwear for Miss 12. My youngest is struggling with the concept of pads and does not like the feel of them. She struggles with tampons as it does not feel right. My eldest offers support and has suggested these undies. Especially since they are environmentally friendly, discrete and easy for tweens to comprehend. Thank you for your consideration. Mum and Miss 12 🙂

  8. Ruby111 18/05/2021 at 10:20 pm

    I would love this for my 13yr old step daughter.. she can not use tampons and she finds pads big and bulky for a heavy flow.. this would be wonderful in size 14-16

    • mikekarlee 19/05/2021 at 10:42 pm

      This product sounds unbelievably AMAZING. My daughter has had her period for just over a year and gets it very heavy. For her to not worry about getting blood on her sheets at night or fear that it might come through her uniform would be such peace of mind for her. My second daughter has just turned 13 and I know when she gets her period she would appreciate having that confidence in what she uses will do the job well! Bonus that it is better for the environment too.

      • mikekarlee 19/05/2021 at 10:44 pm

        Sorry I forgot to add that my daughter is size 10-12

  9. alisun 18/05/2021 at 10:02 pm

    my daughter would love these pants she uses pads at the moment but the expense of these are trying on our budget, please give her the chance to try these

  10. alisun 18/05/2021 at 10:00 pm

    my daughter would love these she uses pads at the moment but these pants look great please give her the chance to try these

  11. alisun 18/05/2021 at 9:57 pm

    My daughter is 15 she would love to have this underwear, she uses padsat the moment but these pants look great
    please give her the chance to wear them

  12. Shris 18/05/2021 at 9:17 pm

    Would be great product to trial for teen especially on heavy flow days.
    Size 12-14 please.

  13. Godzgirl 18/05/2021 at 8:51 pm

    My 14 year old would really appreciate the opportunity to try these. She sometimes has heavy periods. She plays hockey and music and it isn’t always convenient to change.

    I’ve been curious about the products but would like the to try first. She is a size 12 to 14.

    Her sisters 12 and 18 would also be interested if there is capacity, youth 8 to 10 and youth 14 to 16.

  14. Shorrty4life1 18/05/2021 at 8:47 pm

    I would love for my daughter to trial this product. She is 8-10 in sizing and would love these. She doesn’t have periods yet but definitely has the attitude to know it’s not too far away lol. Thanks kidspot for this opportunity.

  15. samara 18/05/2021 at 8:44 pm

    Miss 12 would love to part of this trial. I have watched these products in general for a while and always wondered what they are like. I would love for her to try these in an attempt to make life a little easier each month. Sanitary products are mostly messy and painful for my girls.
    Its such an overwhelming time for a young girl and if this can alleviate the stress, it will be a winner. Miss 10 is also coming into the tween era, so it will be great for both girls to find a product that works better than sanitary products for young girls. We would love to try size 12-14 thanks

  16. bosco099 18/05/2021 at 8:05 pm

    would love 13 year old to trial, 12-14 size

  17. Saltycaramel 18/05/2021 at 7:29 pm

    My girl wears an 8 adult so I think maybe a 12 to 14 size. It’s a monthly battle tampons are too big, tampax she finds uncomfortable so she usually has to wear pads but always worries about leakage, smell and that people can see she is wearing a pad through her pants. She is very shy and has low self confidence and is very uncomfortable with her body as it has changed a lot in the last year with growing up and I think these could really help her get her confidence back and help periods feel more normal and less embarrassing

  18. Purpleducks1 18/05/2021 at 7:24 pm

    This would be a wonderful opportunity for my 14 year old to try! She is very self conscious when she has her cycle! She’s always anxious that she is going to leak and stain her cloths/uniform, so this assurance would mean the world to her. Size 14-16 please.

  19. Amber 18/05/2021 at 7:00 pm

    Hi We have two girls Miss 17yrs size 12-14-and Miss 12yrs almost 13yrs, size 12-14. These would be great to trial

  20. Michelle 18/05/2021 at 6:31 pm

    My 13-year-old daughter would love to try these as she has just started her period and is very self-conscious about using pads and flatly refuses to consider tampons. She is also very conscious about her environmental footprint so is interested in looking at eco-friendly options and options that won’t cost her a fortune in the long run. We have discussed ‘period pants’ but she is worried about how effective they are so these would be great to trial before we invest in some.

  21. Mummyof3 18/05/2021 at 6:00 pm

    My daughter would love to try these. She already has some day time reusable undies but gets stressed and embarrassed about night time leakage. So it would be great to have some for night that keep everything in & she won’t worry about sleepovers at the time of the month. Size 12-14 please

  22. RebekahHoeft 18/05/2021 at 5:50 pm

    My 13 year old would love to give these a go! We are trying to opt for more sustainable options that are better for both her and the environment. This would be an amazing opportunity for her/us! She would be the size 12-14 youth.

  23. Nounoubug22 18/05/2021 at 5:15 pm

    Miss 15 would love to try a pair of these. She sturggles with pads and not ready for tampons and the moon cup is another option but would rather give these a go to help the planet to as she would say.

    Size 14- 16 please

  24. naenae82 18/05/2021 at 5:15 pm

    love one of my daughters to try the 14 to 16 ones please one has been asking the other not too sure yet so will let her trial it lol

  25. Motheroffour 18/05/2021 at 4:44 pm

    His would be fantastic for my miss who has one period already and has that fear that it will show at any time. I think the 10-12 would be a good size.

  26. Kamy2018 18/05/2021 at 4:25 pm

    Hi there these look and sound amazing. I would love to be selected. Good luck to you all

  27. vee_nicole 18/05/2021 at 4:13 pm

    Would love to gift these to my nieces. One is 13 and is just learning what her body does and the other is 11 so will know soon enough. Would be nice to give them a product to try so they know what options are available to them.

  28. Mary110370 18/05/2021 at 3:53 pm

    I would love the opportunity for my teenage daughter to trial these. She has very irregular and heavy periods which at times can catch her off guard and cause embarrassment. She is also extremely active and has a real fear of using public toilets due to being locked in one as a young child so these would bring peace of mind to us both. Size 14-16 please

  29. SugarHobbit 18/05/2021 at 3:40 pm

    14 yr old wearing 12-14. I’ve tried to get her to try out a more environmentally friendly option but she’s dragging her feet a bit. I reckon a free pair to try out will be just the thing to convince her!

  30. Ligaz 18/05/2021 at 3:31 pm

    My miss 14 would love to try these a year of having her period I think she definately would like an easier option size 12-14
