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 store brands.  

The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIH) reports that 1 in 3 patients who visit a primary health care provider are also managing bowel incontinence. This common condition, along with the 33 million people who are managing severe urinary incontinence, is causing a need for more super-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 disposables pull on and off much like regular underwear.
