Best Ways to Conceal Adult Diapers

5 Tips for Concealing Adult Diapers 
Many adults suffer from moderate to total incontinence. It can be caused by many factors: surgeries, giving birth, obesity, diabetes, and more. Despite the prevalence, it is no less embarrassing. If you have to wear adult diapers, knowing the tips and tricks for concealment and discretion can be very useful. Consider the following best practice tips for concealing adult diapers:

Tip one: Get the right fit.

Fit is key to concealing adult diapers. Diapers that do not fit properly may leak, be obvious, or be uncomfortable, causing you to need to constantly adjust them, drawing attention to the fact you are wearing adult diapers. Select the best diapers for you, your body, and your protection needs. Consider getting help with sizing and product selection from a knowledgeable product specialist.

Tip two: Have a plan.

Concealing adult diapers is about fit and protection, but it is also about how you use them. If you are working, you may need to plan your duties and responsibilities in a way that allows for regular bathroom breaks. The same for when you travel, run errands etc. Plan to use the bathroom regularly, know where the bathroom is, how many stalls it has (if there are only a few stalls, allow yourself more wiggle time in case it is full), and how you will access your adult diapers without drawing attention to yourself. Will you keep them in a purse or briefcase? Will you store them in a desk? Locker? Car? You may need to keep a stash on hand in the places you find yourself at regularly. Avoiding accidents in the first place, and being prepared to manage when you do have an accident is key for concealment and discretion.

Tip three: Proper disposal.

Disposing of your adult diapers can give you away, so have a plan for proper disposal. You can’t flush them, nor can you put them in the little cans for feminine products. This means you need to be aware of where garbage cans are located, and plan for getting your soiled diapers into them. A great option is using disposal bags, such as Fresh Sacks or Heaven Scent. They offer a scented sealable disposal bag for holding incontinence products, allowing you to discreetly place them in a garbage can.

Tip four: Wear the right clothes.

What you wear will impact how obvious or how concealed your adult diapers are. Too tightly fitting garments, things that cling (such as lycra) or sheer fabrics, will make it more difficult to conceal diaper wearing. Look for thicker materials, flattering, but not tight fitting pants and skirts, and look for things with details along the neckline, etc. to bring the focus of the eye up. The idea is to use your clothes to draw focus away from the bottom, to something else, thus, if you are wearing jeans, look for plain back pockets, so that the eye is not drawn to that area.

Tip Five: Pick the right product.

When it comes to concealing adult diapers, some options are designed with discretion and concealment in mind, while others are primarily about function. You can have both. Depend Silhouette Underwear for women is a great option for females with incontinence. The Depend Real Fit for Men is great for men.
