Urinary incontinence is a condition in which you are unable to control your own bladder. As you can imagine, this can be embarrassing, especially if you have an accident out in public. Many people who suffer from incontinence also have low self-esteem and feelings of depression.
One way to help manage bladder leaks is by wearing incontinence undergarments, specifically protective underwear. Unlike adult diapers, protective underwear are not taped on the sides and thus, don’t resemble baby diapers. Instead, protective underwear are pulled up and down like regular underwear. This makes people feel less inferior and more confident while out in public.
Nowadays, pull ups even look and feel like traditional men’s and women’s underwear – gone are the days of the white and bulky briefs. Manufacturers realize that although common, urinary incontinence is still often seen as a taboo, causing sufferers to feel insecure and reluctant to try incontinence undergarments.
Protective underwear, also called adult pull ups, are ideal for those with moderate to heavy incontinence. They’re also best for someone who is able-bodied and able to change themselves. Some pull ups also come with side tapes, which make it easy for caregivers to change them and allow for easy adjustments.
Some of the more popular pull ups come from the leading brand Tena. These protective underwear are specifically designed for the male and female body. The Tena Men Protective Underwear comes in attractive gray striped design with a comfortable stretchy waist band and the Women Tena Protective Underwear features an absorbent core with a snug, body-close fit.
Customers also really enjoy the Tranquility OverNight Underwear. This disposable pull up is perfect for adult bedwetting and extended wear. Users pull them up and down like regular underwear, or it can be torn on the sides for easy removal. “You are in total control. You feel confident and secure there will not be any accidents!” one customer wrote.
With the right products and resources, people with urinary incontinence can lead active lives and continue doing what they love. Pull up underwear come in a variety of sizes and styles to accommodate almost anyone with bladder control problems.
