10 Ways to Enjoy up to 12 Hours of Protection

For so many people who are effected by incontinence, including those who love someone with incontinence, life can start to feel like it revolves around the bathroom.

Is there a bathroom nearby? Where is the closest bathroom? What if I can’t make it in time? Will my diaper be enough protection today? Should I pack extra clothes? Questions about bathroom logistics and worries about potential leaks have the power to transform any fun day out into a hotbed for anxiety, insecurity, and stress. Trust us, we get it.

But – and it’s a big but – it actually doesn’t have to be that way…

You just need to find the right kind of absorbency products that fit you and your needs. Unlike the standard drugstore brand options, NorthShore extreme absorbency products provide up to 12 hours* of dry, leak-free protection. That’s 12 hours without having to plan your life around the nearest bathroom. 12 hours of freedom.

Need some ideas for how to spend it?

  1. Score the hottest reservation in town.

Make the most of your new-found confidence and spend an evening out at that fancy new restaurant. There won’t be any reason to plot your bathroom trips ahead of time or come with an excuse as to why you keep leaving the table. By relying on the comfortable and discreet protection in a product like GoSupreme Pull-On Underwear, you can feel safe and dry with an inconspicuous silhouette – no matter how many courses are included in the prix fixe menu.

  1. Enjoy the movies uninterrupted.

Oscar-nominated Killers of the Flower Moon has a run time of three hours and 26 minutes, and honestly, sitting that long without a bathroom break is a tough ask for anyone. But, by choosing a premium extreme-absorbency product like MegaMax Diaper Style Briefs, you’ll feel comfortable for the entirety of the movie and even longer. In our opinion, 12 hours of dry, comfortable protection is a movie marathon secret weapon. We’ll have a large soda, please!

  1. Travel!

A full day of leak-free protection means you can finally take that trip you’ve been planning in your mind forever, just waiting for the right time to do it. No more excuses – the right time is now. And even if nothing else goes according to plan on travel day, your flight gets delayed, you get a flat tire, and the airline loses one of your bags, you can feel confident that changing your diaper will be one thing you don’t have to worry about. And if you need more help or tricks to prepare for your next vacation, we’ve got you covered.

Our favorite product for travel is always the extreme absorbency MegaMax – boasting an extra-wide and extra-long absorbent core, it provides added protection and comfort for long stretches of sitting.  And its smooth plastic exterior prevents sagging throughout the day or night. Additionally, the amazingly soft and slim EternaDry Booster Pads are easy extras to pack for added protection during particularly long travel days.

  1. Hit the golf course.

Slow rounds won’t get you down when you come prepared with the right absorbency protection. For a long day out on the course, we recommend fast-drying underwear liners that work double-duty to keep you dry and comfortable while keeping pace.

For men, the convenient stick-on DoubleStop Guards are the perfect active solution to protect against light to moderate urinary incontinence. Alternatively, for women or men who need a little more protection, the DynaDry Supreme Liners are highly absorbent liners that are contoured for a close body fit with leak guards for extra containment to withstand your toughest shot out of the rough.

  1. Stand the heat.

Don’t let high temps and humidity be your excuse to stay inside on a beautiful day. With the right absorbency protection, you can stay dry and comfortable (relatively, of course) on even the hottest summer days. NorthShore’s MegaMax AirLock was designed specifically with a breathable cloth-like exterior for better airflow to promote healthy skin. Perfect for particularly humid or damp days, the MegaMax AirLock will help you stay as cool as possible.

  1. Take a step outside your comfort zone.

Take advantage of finally finding the right incontinence supplies and lean into that self-care spirit. Now is the perfect time to try something new to get fit. Group fitness classes like yoga or Pilates might seem intimidating at first, but now that you know you don’t have to worry about leaks, why not give them a shot? We have a feeling you’re braver than you think.

For lightweight absorbent protection with a slim profile that bends and flexes with you, perfect for yoga and Pilates, HIIT classes, and anything in between, check out GoSupreme Lite Pull-On Underwear.

  1. Get a good night’s rest.

Is there anything better than finally getting eight hours of uninterrupted sleep? Try 12 hours! And even if that amount of time in bed seems like a pipe dream, it’s nice to know you have the option. MegaMax Diaper-Style Briefs are the best, most comfortable, driest-feeling absorbency products around for overnight protection and a good night’s sleep. So go ahead, shoot for the stars.

  1. Be spontaneous!

Once you find the right incontinence supplies to meet your needs, your social life can expand. Old worries about packing enough spare diapers or changes of clothes are going to be a thing of the past, leaving room for reconnecting with old friends and finding new connections where you least expect them.

We think one of the best parts of finally checking “find better diapers” off your to-do list is the way it opens up the rest of your life to new possibility, and “yes” starts to replace “no” as your new default. Last-minute changes to plans suddenly feel like adventures rather than burdens, and your whole world begins to expand.

GoSupreme Pull-On Underwear is a great standard, comfortable product to start the day, but we love having a few EternaDry Booster Pads on hand as well – just in case your day takes a turn… for the better.

  1. Tackle your bucket list.

If incontinence, either yours or a loved one’s, has gotten in the way of achieving your goals, know that you are not alone. So many people suffer in silence, too embarrassed to ask for help or find a solution. But just because you’re not alone doesn’t mean it has to be that way…

Take this as your firm but friendly nudge to start taking action. Speak with a health professional (if you haven’t already) and start managing your incontinence symptoms. Find the best suited diapers, pull-ons, or pads for you and your lifestyle so you can dust off your old bucket list and start checking off boxes.

Book the extra-long flight you’ve been thinking about. Ask for the raise you know you deserve. Put your name in the ring for the big promotion at work. With up to 12 hours of protection, there won’t be much that can stop you.

  1. Stop. Worrying.

We know that sometimes worrying about leaking can be even worse than the leaking itself. And the endless worries and anxieties become all-consuming. But not with NorthShore.

We pride ourselves on selling diapers and other absorbency products that you and your family can trust. Whether you choose the absolute max protection offered by MegaMax or a slimmer fit for active days with GoSupreme Lite, the best part about NorthShore products is that you can finally give your worried mind a rest.


Regardless of capacity, an absorbent product must be changed immediately following a bowel movement.
