Best Protective Underwear for Curvy Women

Protective underwear for curvy women

According to WomensHealth.Gov, one of the most common types of incontinence that affect women is stress incontinence. It may happen after childbirth, menopause, or other health-related issues.

For women who have larger hips and thighs, searching for adult incontinence products can be even more difficult. Protective underwear should feel comfortable to wear, fit correctly around the leg areas and offer sufficient protection needed by the user.

Incontinence underwear, like adult diapers with tabs, should have a special lining that quickly wick away wetness from the body. A select group of NorthShore's products offer this 'Microsorb lining'. This helps contain large amounts of urine and bowel leaks in the front and back of the product. Premium products should also include tall leak guards in the leg areas to prevent leaks.

Depend, Tena and other incontinence brands have underwear designed especially for women, but not all of them have the special features needed to accommodate women with curves. If you’re a woman managing heavy bladder leakage, then consider NorthShore's adult pull-ups and liners that offer more styles, absorbency levels and sizes not offered in retail stores.

  • Up to 8 hours of protection

  • Ideal for heavy urinary leakage

If you're looking for a liner, consider the NorthShore™ DynaDry™ Supreme Liners. These liners, (known as large-shaped pads) can be used in regular underwear and are available in various sizes.
