Global sports company, PUMA and absorbent apparel brand, Modibodi, have developed a series of Period Pep Talks with world-class female athletes, aimed at encouraging women and girls to stay in sport.

As part of the Period Pep Talk campaign, PUMA and Modibodi have designed a new patent pending period activewear collection to help women, girls and people who menstruate to feel comfortable and confident playing sport and being active during their period.

Period Pep Talks are a response to a globally commissioned report that uncovered one in two girls quit sport due to periods. The talks feature world-class athletes including NRLW star Tiana Penitani, European sprinter Jodie Williams, and former professional race car driver Naomi Schiff, who directly address young girls and teens who are considering leaving the sport they love due to puberty and menstruation.

Modibodi head of sustainability and public affairs, Sarah Forde said, “The data from our global report in May 2022, showed women and girls believe periods need to be more openly discussed in the sports world. That’s why we are proud to partner with PUMA to create the Period Pep Talks, working with their athletes to raise this issue in our global consciousness.”

PUMA global director running and training business unit, Erin Longin added: “With 50% of girls experiencing discomfort from disposable menstrual products like pads and tampons when participating in sport or physical exercise, we felt it was important to design a range of leak-proof activewear that would make playing sport on your period more comfortable, more protected, and more possible than ever.”

The range combines Modibodi’s unique patent pending Activewear technology with expertise from PUMA and consists of two styles of activewear – leggings and cycle shorts – available in aubergine and black. This is the second installment from the PUMA x Modibodi collaboration, after launching their first period and leak-proof underwear range in May this year.

The PUMA x Modibodi activewear collection is available in selected stores and online at and
