Looking for the Best Incontinence Underwear for Absorbency, Style & Fit?

Happy family

Incontinence underwear, also known as adult pull-ons, are very popular because they are comfortable, fit closer to the body and are less noticeable than tab-style briefs. Many people recognize pull-up style underwear labels such as Depend, Tranquility and Tena. There are also other brands of pull-ons worth considering, including NorthShore, with up to 3x the leak protection of leading store brands.  

The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIH) reports that 1 in 3 patients who visit a primary healthcare provider are managing bowel incontinence. This common condition, along with the millions of people who are managing severe urinary incontinence, is causing a need for more absorbent incontinence underwear options.

Today, there is a wide variety of adult protective underwear. Men and women choose such incontinence protection because it is more comfortable and fits closer to the body, making it easier to move around. Such absorbent disposable products can be pulled on and off much like regular underwear.

What is the best underwear for any type of incontinence? See below for popular styles.

I will continue to buy these!” - Elana P., Arizona Resident, NorthShore Customer
