Here’s Why People Use Booster Pads: 

  • To extend the life of current disposable tab-style briefs or pull-up style underwear 

  • To use at night for added protection – they are great for side sleepers 

  • During the day to go out and about ("just in case" situations)

  • To decrease the need for multiple changes due to accidental leaks

NorthShore Booster Pads are available in five sizes from X-Small to 2XL. This article addresses the important elements in selecting and using them correctly to get the most capacity needed to live life to the fullest.


How to Select the Right Booster Pad

  • Make sure you’re using the right size disposable tab-style brief or pull-on underwear - if you're not wearing the right size, then you probably won't select the right booster pad. 

  • Find the right shape booster pad - NorthShore offers a rectangular shape for sizes S-XL as well as a contoured shape for 2XL. If your underwear or brief is larger than XL, the contoured shape may be your best bet for coverage in the front and rear. 

Typically, you want the size of the booster to be the same as the absorbent brief or protective underwear that you’re using, or use a smaller size booster. If you use booster pads that are too big, urine may spill over the leak guards and open the door to leakage. The booster pad should be placed between the leak guards, in the core of the tab-style brief or pull-on.

The size you use and how you properly set the booster pad is important. To find the best booster pad, you first have to find the correct size in your primary undergarment. Use a measuring guide and take the time to record body measurements to find the best-fitting product. 


Watch the video for key features and instructions on inserting a booster pad properly, which include:

Step 2.
Place pad inside disposable undergarment

Step 3.
