Incontinence underwear for 2019

What are the best incontinence underwear for 2019?

Anyone who has searched for adult incontinence products knows it can be very overwhelming. Where do you even start? How much absorbency do you need? What is your output like? Do you need it for daytime or nighttime use? Are you active or is discreetness a priority? For some it just boils down to what are the best diapers out on the market.

One thing to remember is there are differing terms for incontinence products that can become very confusing. The big three are diapers/briefs, underwear/pull-on’s and liners/pads.

Diapers are more for heavy incontinence, which could include urine or feces.

Underwear are more for light to medium output of urine, not made for feces.

Liners are for light urine incontinence only.

How are these made?  Most underwear have 4 basic parts that work in conjunction.

  1. Waterproof outer layer that holds the whole thing together.
  2. Absorbent core the most important part of the underwear.  This is compromised of a super absorbent polymer that is a chemical crystal.  This gel can absorb up to 30 times its own weight.
  3. Inner layer which is like a liner that covers the core and touches your skin.  Usually made from a polyester or cotton.
  4. Stretchiers which is the elastic band around the waist/legs.

The following are some of the top 5 adult incontinence underwear selling on Amazon.

    Hi Chris, when I started to take care of my ninety year old mom, I was overwhelmed with the options of incontinence underwear. Your details are very helpful. I now see that it is not just about size, but it is also about the special need of the wearer. I can now look at the different specifications you give, and choose one that is just right for her. Thank you for an informative post.

    • Chris says:

      Hi JJ I am glad that the post helped you out.  As you can see there are many different options and something for everyone.

  2. Peace says:

    I am not very conversant with the word ”incontinence”.

    But, thanks to your article I now know about the three types of incontinence products. 1, diapers 2, underwear, 3, liners. 

    I don’t use any of the first two, which are the diapers and underwear but I use the pant liners. 

    The brand I patronise and prefer, is the always brand. Like you said in your article, they have been around for 30 years. That means they are trust worthy. 

    • Chris says:

      Hi Peace I truly appreciate your feedback and hope you learned something new today.  It is great that you found something that works for you.

      Thanks again!!!

    I did not know this was such a big issue. It is nice that you are labeling all the best incontinence underwear. Which incontinence underwear is your favorite to wear? When you need to go I would like to know which underwear you trust the most to keep you fresh, nice and clean.

    • Chris says:

      Hi Jon thankfully I am blessed to not have to utilize any of the products yet.  However I am glad I was able to help educate you on the subject, and if you ever had a family member or friend you would be able to direct them here.

      Thanks!

    Hi Chris! I have moved over to my grandparents place and have been obviously helping them with their shopping. There are many things I feel I have improved concerning their shopping decisions and this is one I’ll try.

    I appreciate I found your site, because you explain things mentioning all the possibilities. I have decided that the best option are the Depend FIT-FLEX Incontinence. And I’ll take advantage of the FSA card. If they approve them I’ll let you know too. Thanks.

    • Chris says:

      HI Henry I am glad that you found some good information that can help you and your grandparents.  I think the biggest thing people struggle with are sizing and making sure they have a good fit so they don’t leak.  I hope that you have no issues using your FSA card.  Let me know how it goes, thanks again!

    Interesting list Chris,

    The depend FIT-FLEX Incontinence Underwear Max Absorbency sounds neat, it sounds very comfortable and less bulky. I Wouldn’t think anyone would want to wae something that’s bulky and protruding. It would make it easier if there are pictures to help see and compare better though, just a suggestion 🙂

    • Chris says:

      Hi Riaz you are correct I would think most people would not want something super bulky.  Most people are too embarrassed to even talk about this subject and then you add in the fact that you have to wear this garment that is large and noisy.  I agree with your suggestion of some more photos, be on the look out for some new posts with more pictures.  Thanks again!

Please i need a product that fits into my everyday underwear or briefs. What should I try?”

  8. Kathy Rivers says:

    You provided great descriptions of the products for both women and men. I like how you explained the sizes for men and women. Information is very detailed and easy to review.

  9. Nuttanee says:

    Thank you for doing reviews on incontinence product. It is such a touchy subject where I cannot really ask my mother in law if the product works, she kept avoiding my questions. My mother in law, Betty, is currently using Depend adjustable since she can adjust to it and get the most comfort. However, it gets really expensive and I see that Amazon brand has such a competitive price. Will give Solimo a try and will take it from there. Doesn’t hurt if Amazon is willing to give the full refund. Thanks!

    • Chris says:

      Hi Nuttanee you are right this subject is very touchy and my hope is posts like these can inform more people.  There are a lot of products out there that can help that are budget friendly.  Thanks again!

I like the Depend FIT FLEX incontinence Absorbency which is flexible and allows for easy moves as It contains elasticity.
