What You Need to Know About Pull Up Adult Underwear

Explore your incontinence product options
When someone is first diagnosed with incontinence they often think that they will be stuck wearing an oversized baby diaper with tab fasteners. This is not necessarily true. Today, there is a much wider variety of incontinence products to choose from. Many people who are dealing with incontinence themselves or caring for someone with incontinence don’t realize that there are plenty of options to choose from when it comes to adult incontinence products. While an adult diaper is appropriate for some people, there are other options as well. One of the most popular options is the pull up adult underwear. 

The first thing that you should do is to educate yourself about what is available in the market. You may be surprised at the number of different options that you can choose from in every category. This is especially true when it comes to pull up underwear. There are many different styles and materials to choose from. Once you know what you can choose from, you should determine if this is the right incontinence product to manage your incontinence effectively.

The next step is to determine if pull up underwear is right for your needs. Most people who use this type of incontinence product have a high degree of mobility. Keep in mind that you will be able to bend over and pull up and pull off the adult underwear while changing. If you or someone whom you are caring for has limited mobility, it may not be the right choice for your management strategy. It should be noted that most pull up underwear have tear away sides for easier removal. However, if you are depending on the tear away sides for changing, you may be better off selecting a style that can be put on and taken off with side fasteners.

Once you have determined that pull up underwear is the right choice for your incontinence undergarment, and then it is time to decide what kind you will need. This type of incontinence product offers a wide variety of absorbencies. You will need to make sure that you understand what level of absorbency you should use. You should also keep in mind that your absorbency needs may change from time to time. For this reason, you should consider keeping at least a couple of different absorbencies on hand.

It is also at this time that you will need to determine what size will work best. Most pull up adult underwear comes in a range of sizes. Size is an integral part of whether or not the product will work. If the incontinence undergarment is too small or too large then leaking and accidents are more prone to happen. In addition, an ill-fitting undergarment can cause chafing and serious rashes. This makes it crucial that you choose the best fit possible.
