Period-Proof Pyjama Shorts Are the Secret to a Stress-Free Night’s Sleep


Period leaks are never fun and can often happen at the most inopportune times, including during the night. If you’ve woken up to discover you’ve leaked overnight, you’re not alone — this happens to everyone at one point or another.

To help alleviate some of the anxiety around leaking while asleep, Modibodi has created sleep shorts designed to catch leaks and put your mind at ease. The RED Sleep Short ($35) was created specifically for tweens and teens, who are learning to manage their periods, and holds up to three to four tampons’ worth.

Modibodi’s breathable patented technology includes an ultra-absorbent liner that fights stains, odour and bacteria to keep you feeling fresh, while the boyshort design has a soft waistband that doesn’t dig into your skin and feels like regular pyjama shorts.

Not only will this help reduce stress and prevent pesky overnight leakages, but the shorts also reduce the number of single-use period products ending up in landfill. The organic cotton of Modibodi’s Sleep Short is more eco-friendly and better for your body than regular cotton as well.

According to Modibodi, if one person uses reusable leak-proof underwear from the beginning of their menstrual cycle, it could save the equivalent of 15 garbage bags full of rubbish ending up in landfill. That is pretty wild to think about!

To clean the shorts, simply rinse then pop on a gentle cold machine wash and hang to dry. The Modibodi RED Sleep Short is currently available in the limited-edition Mood Phase print via Modibodi’s website in four youth sizes — 8-10, 10-12, 12-14 and 14-16.
