Other Tips When Wearing Diapers:

  • Drink Water - Staying hydrated is key, even with a leaky bladder. It can get warm for some people wearing tab-style briefs, especially if they have a plastic-exterior. 

  • Smooth the Plastic Material (for plastic-backed briefs) -  Smoothing prevents the plastic to rip on the front of the briefs.

  • Sample the Product - You should never feel uncomfortable when you’re wearing tab-style briefs. Meaning you shouldn’t feel any cutting into the leg or upper thigh area when you are sitting, lying down, or in any other position. 

These are some of the tips we think will help in wearing tab-style briefs. Fortunately, there are products to help with bulging, colors and protection throughout the day. BodySuits and the waterproof covers come in many sizes and various color choices to choose from.
