I use modibodi and will be buying them for my 11 yr old when the time comes.

I bought my daughter a pair of modi bodi when she was a tiny 11 year old. She’s 12 now and still hasn’t started her periods but she says the knickers are really comfortable. Now I now sizing, I will buy more when she starts her period.

 *now I KNOW sizing.

Awesome! Thanks ladies. Will look into sizing and order some for her 😀

 My daughter is 12 and three months. Quite petite. She fits into a size 10-12 . Just incase you were unsure of sizing.

Damn it ( sorry to those who think damn is a curse word). This post jinxed me. I replied yesterday saying I’d bought a pair of modibodi for my girl but she hadn’t started her period yet. This morning she got her period.

Use normal knickers

 Normal knickers are not the same.

 Hence the reason the OP is asking about modibodi :)

 I know, I’m replying to the person saying to use normal knickers. I’m telling THAT person you can’t use normal knickers. I already replied with my modibodi comment.
