Washable and Reusable Men/Women Incontinence Underwear
Washable 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.
Style: Washable absorbent underwear comes in either a brief style or a boxer style for men. Women's underwear comes in a variety of pantie 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 is designed to be comfortable and resemble regular undergarments. 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.
