Protective Underwear (pull on style)

How to Choose Protective Underwear

Protective underwear includes disposable pull-ups and reusable briefs, often featuring tear-away sides that allow for easy removal, as well as a high degree of leak protection. When choosing protective underwear it is important to consider different components such as absorbency, material, moisture wicking and size. Undergarments are a good compromise between an Incontinence Pad and a Brief. Typically undergarments are recommended for those with moderate incontinence, though your individual circumstances may vary. For additional incontinence protection, reusable underwear can be lined with a Pad or Shield. If you are looking for a discreet, comfortable protection option, protective underwear is a great choice for you. Below are some features to help you make an informed choice on what to purchase.

Absorption: refers to the amount of water absorbing polymer contained inside the underwear. The more polymer and the greater the concentration of polymer, the stronger the absorption. When determining the level of absorbency that you need, consider the amount and duration of flow that occurs throughout the day. Most of our protective underwear is designed with heavy absorption, which is ideal if you lose a large volume of urine, especially at night; however, we carry a wide range, such as the Simplicity Protective Underwear, which is a great choice if you are looking for something with moderate absorbency.

Wicking: is the action of drawing moisture away from the body via capillary action, which is important to maintain better skin health. If you experience a heavy flow, are using the product at night, or have sensitive skin, advanced wicking is important. The Protection Plus Overnight Protective Underwear is a great choice if you're looking for an overnight brief with strong wicking capabilities.

Size: is a necessary factor in guaranteeing the proper protection. If an undergarment is either too small or too large, it will not be effective in managing leaks, so it is very important to measure your waist, hips, and thighs in order to ensure you get the size that is right for you. Keep in mind, some manufacturers sizes may be different from others. The Attends Bariatric Underwear are specifically designed to comfortably fit larger patients, while the DryTime Disposable Protective Youth Underwear is a great choice for younger patients who experience incontinence.
