MODESS was a revolutionary product designed by women for women. Based on door-to-door consumer research conducted by trained nurses, the pads offered improved protection and added comfort. However, because menstruation remained taboo, MODESS Sanitary Napkins were notoriously difficult to advertise. Since Modess had to compete with Kotex, another early brand of feminine hygiene product, Johnson & Johnson commissioned a survey to find out how women would design pads and belts. The report, published in 1927, not only helped Modess thrive but revolutionized the manufacture of feminine hygiene products.Modess distinguished itself with its advertising. From 1948 to 1970, its slogan was Modess... The slogan capitalized on people's reluctance to discuss menstruation or feminine hygiene products while tying those feelings into the name Modess, which suggests modesty.
Used in the ads were pictures of elegantly-dressed women in graceful, timeless settings. In 1970, Johnson & Johnson revolutionized feminine hygiene products again: Personal Products Company developed Stayfree, the first pads which used, instead of belts, adhesive that attached to underwear.
