Washable Absorbent Underwear

How to Choose Reusable Underwear

Washable absorbent underwear is ideal for those who are experiencing urinary incontinence and would prefer something that looks and feels like regular underwear. There are a few important factors when choosing incontinence underwear; absorbency, style and material.

Absorbency: is the amount of liquid the underwear can hold. For a light flow, and if you are male, try the Sir Dignity Fitted Brief, which is designed to hold a pad in place for light protection. If you are female, the wearever cotton brief provides light protection with built-in pads. The wearever briefs do not require separate disposable pads to be absorbent. For moderate protection, Salk makes moderately absorbent underwear for men and women.

Style: Washable absorbent underwear comes in either a brief style or a boxer style for men. Women's underwear comes in a variety of panty styles. Basically, it is just a preference as to which style you choose.

Material: Reusable incontinence underwear comes in a few options of materials. Cotton underwear is designed to be comfortable and resemble regular underwear. Nylon and lycra absorbent underwear is designed to be stretchable and achieve a more precise fit. Finally, some other styles are made from a plastic material and are designed to prevent fluid from striking through the material. The trade-off is that plastic underwear would be less breathable than the cotton or nylon alternatives.

Basically, choosing a reusable underwear will depend on which of the above features are most important to you and selecting a style, material and absorbency that meets your individual needs.
