Should I Choose an Adult Diaper Based on Brand?

May 06, 2014 2 min read

    “I’m new to wearing adult diapers. There are so many brands available and I don’t know which one to pick. Is there a specific brand I should try?”

People who are new to wearing adult diapers may get overwhelmed by the vast options of incontinence products. Should you a buy store brand versus a name brand? Is Depends the best brand?

Finding the right incontinence product for your specific needs is a matter of trial and error. The brand of the product is not nearly as important as the type of product it is and how absorbent is it.

When purchasing incontinence undergarments, you should first think about how much and how often you leak. This will help you determine if you need a pad, brief or underwear. If you’re only losing a few drops here and there, a thin incontinence pad will suffice. However, if you are constantly leaking or have sudden urges to go, an adult diaper with tape tabs or pull up underwear would be ideal. Some people prefer pull ups over diapers because the underwear makes them feel more dignified.

The more popular incontinence brands include Tena, Abena, Prevail and Tranquility. Abena briefs are the most absorbent. Tena, Prevail and Depend all offer gender-specific briefs designed to fit the unique contours of a man and woman. Tranquility briefs and underwear are great for those with nighttime incontinence and adult bedwetting.

Don’t worry about specific brands when choosing an incontinence brief. Instead, focus on the absorbency and comfort of the brief. The best adult diaper should protect you against leakage and keep you feeling confident at all times. Click here to read more about what to look for when shopping for adult diapers.
