If you have incontinence you need to use some incontinence products that will be able to help you manage your condition. Using protective underwear is a great way to protect yourself from the embarrassment that can arise if you have an incontinence episode in public. The nice aspect of protective underwear is that it is quite discrete and it can restore your confidence. There are many different types of incontinence underwear to choose from. How can you find a brand and a style that you like? Here are some tips to help you find the right incontinence underwear for your needs.

When you are looking for incontinence supplies your gender will play a big role in your ability to find the right products. Male incontinence products are much different from female incontinence products in the way that they fit but a lot in a number of other things as well such as the absorbency and the size.

There are adult diapers on the market that are marked as “small” “medium” or “large” but these are sizes that do not define you! It is important that you look into the sizing of protective underwear so you are getting the right fit. If you buy a size that is too big it will cause leaking. Then if you get one that is too small it will end up causing you to have pinching of your skin and can easily lead to a rash. One option that you may consider is to use incontinence pads over the adult diapers as you can wear your normal underwear and just add the pad to it.

When you are trying out a number of different incontinence products you need to find products that are comfortable. Disposable products may not be as comfortable as the washable incontinence products since the washable ones are made from cotton and polyester. Use a sample kit to see which type of adult diapers you prefer. Some people like the feel of the washable ones where others are not bothered by the feel of the disposable diapers.

How much urine loss do you deal with each day? Measure the amount of urine loss you are dealing with as this will help you to understand how much protection you need. There are a number of products on the market that you can choose from with different absorbency needs. It is a smart idea to look for products that vary from adult diapers to incontinence pads or liners. This is a great way to help you find the protection level that you need to maintain control over incontinence.

There is a significant cost difference between washable incontinence products and disposables. The disposable products are great if you don’t want to deal with the cleaning but they can get expensive in a hurry. You have to consider the cost of the disposable products and compare it to the cost of washable to see which ones will be able to save you the most money. The washable products are great as they help you to save money and to contribute to the environment as you won’t be adding more diapers to the landfills.

To save money on the cost of incontinence supplies you need to consider shopping online. Online shopping is great as you have a larger selection of products to choose from but you also can save money. If you are embarrassed about buying incontinence supplies you will find that shopping online is great as you can do it in the comfort of your own home and the supplies will be sent to your door in a discrete way.
