Modibodi’s Recycled Leggings Are Perfect for Working Out With Your Period
The last thing you might feel like doing when you have your period is exercising. But, studies have shown that working out in the lead up to and during your period can actually help lessen some of the symptoms associated with menstruation.
The second issue related to working out during your period is the leak factor. Will your period products withstand the yoga, barre, boxing or strength training session you’re about to do?! It’s a risk.
In order to help alleviate this stress, Modibodi created the 7/8 Recycled Active Legging ($99). That’s right, it’s like period undies in the form of leggings. So good! Designed to be comfortable enough for working out, these leggings include a built-in 3mm Modifier Technology lining that is extremely absorbent — holding two to three tampons worth — as well as being stain, odour and bacteria-resistant.
Not only are these Modibodi leggings great for catching periods but you can also rest assured that they’ll absorb bladder leaks, discharge and sweat as well. If that isn’t enough to love, these leggings are also made from 78 percent recycled material from pre-consumer factory waste, so you’re doing wonders for the planet by ditching single-use period periods and investing in earth-friendly materials.
To care for your leggings, simply wear, then rinse and wash in your washing machine on gentle before hanging out to dry. Modibodi’s 7/8 Recycled Active Leggings are available in sizes eight to 18 and can be purchased via the Modibodi website.
