Be Period Prepared With Modibodi

[This post is an AD in collaboration with Modibodi and contains gifted items]

If you are someone who has a period, you’ll know that, no matter how long you’ve been having them, they still take you by surprise. I’ve worked out that I’ve had around 270 periods in my life, I track them, I know when they’re due, I should be a period PRO, yet I’ve never quite mastered the art of preparation.
"Sensual Full Brief" - Modibodi

’m what’s known in the industry as a “Sweaty Sleeper” and sanitary towels just don’t work for me and my hotter-than-the-sun body so I’ve always been on the look out for a solution that will be comfortable yet avoid the nighttime leakage (We’ve all been there). Luckily, @modibodiaustralia are a fab brand now available in the UK, who offer a range of extremely cute period pants to solve this issue amongst many others. 

A couple of years ago, I’d have been a bit put off by the idea of Period Pants but since the market has shifted in the way I see sustainability alongside breaking the taboos of menstruation, I was all for giving them a go. Modibodi use breathable fabrics to avoid the sweat issue, alongside an extremely slim (3mm) lining to avoid any leakage. The briefs pictured can be used alone on light-medium period days, and as a back up on heavy period days.

As someone who’s trying to think more about the impact I have on the planet around me, moving away from the sanitary products I’ve traditionally used is becoming increasingly important and @modibodiaustralia offer an extremely attractive solution.

The pants go from a size 8 - 24 and are available in a variety of aesthetically appealing styles. Be sure to check out the “Modibodi Gives Back” page of their website - These guys are really making a difference.

The Range We All Deserve - Danielle Vanier x Navabi

[This post contains gifted items]

One of the greatest things about blogging and social media-ing is that I’ve met some incredible women; Women with vision, talent and the drive to make things happen. I’m sure you’ll all agree that Danie Vanier is one of these women. We all have our own styles and “fashion” is incredibly subjective but one thing I can tell you is that for as long as I’ve known about plus size style, I’ve been a big fan of Danie.

Ponte Jersey Top* - Navabi X Danielle Vanier
Satin-Blend Frill Side Culottes* - Navabi X Danielle Vanier

Danie has such a recognisable style without ever being pigeonholed and this year has absolutely been her year to make just this accessible to the mainstream; Starting with a superb Marks and Spencer footwear collaboration and now gracing the rails of our fave stop for high end plus size fashion; Navabi. The range is insanely coherent - it’s simple, it’s modern, it’s unique, it’s just SO Danie.

Each piece is designed in a way that allows you to slot it right into your existing wardrobe and style in a way that works for you, so when I was asked to select a piece for myself I was spoilt for choice. I ended up going with the Satin-Blend (SO SOFT) frill side culottes* and ponte jersey top* (SO LUXE) and this is how they look on me: Unique, fabulous and exactly what a plus size woman deserves.

I found the fit to be very true to size and am really impressed on how well thought out the proportions are, both as standalone items but also together. I just added a belt to break the block monochrome up a little bit and of course, some huge earrings because that's the extent of my ability to successfully accessorise.

Well done Danie and Navabi on a truly brilliant range, I hope we get to see much more of the same in the future.
