Best Adult Diapers (And Pads) for Fecal Incontinence

Best adult diapers for fecal incontinence

Stay Protected And Free From Leaks, Odors & Embarrassment

Approximately 1 in 12 adults worldwide have fecal incontinence. These bowel leaks can be embarrassing, leaving people in a constant state of anxiety worried about stains or odors, afraid someone might notice. Most drugstore products are designed for light urinary incontinence and do not protect against bowel leaks.

But don’t panic, there are more options than what’s on the store shelf. NorthShore offers bowel incontinence products designed to contain the heaviest bowel leaks and help contain odors so that you can live with confidence & dignity!

Best Adult Diapers for Fecal Incontinence 

Quality adult diapers provide peace of mind outside the house. For those managing bowel leaks, we recommend adult diapers with tabs


Because individuals wearing diapers with tabs can adjust the fit as needed. The tabs allow for a tighter fit around the leg area (where most leaks occur). Plastic-backed diapers contain odors better than ones with a cloth-like backing.

The plastic acts as a barrier to stop smells and prevents sagging when the diaper is full.  Here are our top picks for bowel incontinence:

MEGAMAX USA Lite Tab Diapers

These briefs feature the same sizing as our classic MegaMax Briefs with a lighter absorbency and less bulk. MEGAMAX Lite offers up to 6 hours* of daytime comfort with Large, heavy-duty refastenable tape tabs to keep the brief snug and comfortable.

If you are managing bowel leaks, this diaper is for you. MEGAMAX USA Lite is a plastic-backed diaper, so it’s the best in odor protection for bowel incontinence and is strong and durable to resist sagging when full.

  • Offers up to 6 hours of reassuringly for all day comfort

  • Dual leak guards for added security against bowel leaks

  • Durable plastic exterior that fights against odors

  • Elastic in the front and rear for a comfortable fit

Plus, MEGAMAX Lite offers a fade-away wetness indicator printed down the center to signal when it's time to change.

GoSupreme Lite Pullups

GoSupreme Lite Pull-Ups are a great option for managing fecal incontinence. They offer up to 8 hours of protection and feature tall leak guards to prevent leaks. The strong waist elastics hug the body even when wet to ensure a snug fit.

  • Up to 8 hours* of bowel and bladder leakage protection

Reliable Protection: Best Liners for Fecal Incontinence

Standard drugstore pads often lack the coverage needed for fecal incontinence. NorthShore offers superior solutions:

What are the best liners for bowel incontinence?

DynaDry Supreme Liners

What’s unique about DynaDry Supreme Liners is the rear coverage. The absorbent zone in the rear helps to contain bowel movements better than others. This added coverage in the back prevents leaks to clothing and linens. For moderate bowel leakage this may be a solution that works in regular underwear.

  • The liner made for containing bowel leaks

  • Tall leak guards prevent bowel leaks from reaching clothing

  • Extra-wide coverage in the rear contains bowel movements

  • Strong adhesive keeps liner in place

Jonathan, a current NorthShore customer, shares his experience with DynaDry Liners.

"As a young male with incontinence issues, this product has helped tremendously when I have small bowel accidents. It allows me to be an active young adult on the go."

Bowel Incontinence Products for Skin & Odor Control

Taking care of the skin is crucial when managing bowel incontinence. When moisture sits on the skin for too long, issues can arise. Durable wipes are the key to keeping skin in tip-top shape.

What’s a must-have supply for bowel incontinence? NorthShore Supreme Quilted Wipes.

NorthShore Adult Wipes wipes are a triple-threat: they clean, moisturize, and protect skin.

  • Extra-large sizing (9” X 13”) ensures optimal cleanliness with fewer wipes
