What's your preferred outfit? Jeans and t-shirt? Dress? individuals new to adult diapers may not know what style they prefer from the start. Breathable side panels are one of the most underrated features in tab-style briefs and worth discussing for current users. While these panels are not the most popular feature in this style, they offer great benefits to individuals.

Tab-style briefs have three different types of closure options: adhesive (usually for plastic backed briefs), combination (adhesive with hook and loop systems) and breathable side panels. Side panels are a cloth-like material and are significantly longer and wider than common average tabs.

Benefits of Adult Diapers with Side Panels

  • Ideal for Unique Body Types - These tabs are ideal for individuals with pear and hourglass body types. They also help individuals who have skin folds or a tummy.

  • Ideal for Active Individuals - For individuals who travel, or require frequent changes, these breathable side panels are easy to re-adjust when needed. Each panel goes over the waist and is placed over the center of the landing zone (the front area of the briefs where tabs stay in place).

  • Discreet Fit - The shape of the tabs wrap easily around the waist for a comfortable and discreet fit that moves comfortably with the user.

  • Worry-Free Fit - The length and width of the side panels provide a secure hold to the landing zone of the brief. The entire panel consists of the hook and loop closures providing a stronger hold.
