I tried modibodi active brief and another brand. I just use them for when I'm running and a recent experience of stress incontinence which made me feel incredibly old and embarrassed. Anyway, no need to feel like that because these pants are great - no feeling of dampness, and they are very discreet. This is where I would rate modibodi higher than the other brand (which were visible underneath running leggings). I rinse them and let them dry afterwards, ready for tomorrow's run. Expensive, but worth it for the discreet padding that you can't see.
