Having the right incontinence management tools is even more important in summertime, when clothing is lighter and outdoor events mean bathrooms are farther away. Here are some great tips on the latest products and how to control urinary incontinence.

One of our summertime challenges is staying hydrated without overworking the bladder. Drinking the right amount depends on an individual’s health condition and severity of incontinence, so it should be discussed with her doctor.
Second, if you experience bladder control problems, avoid known irritants, especially before outdoor events where bathroom access may be limited. Irritants may include alcohol, caffeine, sugar and artificial sweeteners, corn syrup, spicy foods, and acidic foods such as tomatoes and citrus.

In addition to following a few simple dietary rules, using the right incontinence products means women can wear summer fashions with confidence. Here are a few product innovations that are popular choices among women managing incontinence:
  • Just because a woman is managing incontinence doesn’t mean she can’t swim or participate in poolside or beach activities. SoSecure Swim Briefs are washable, reusable, absorbent underwear that can be worn next to the skin, under swimwear. SoSecure briefs are designed for bowel incontinence but also hold several cups of liquid.
  • For women who need the absorbency and odor control of briefs but want a smooth fit under summer clothing, there’s Depend Silhouette Underwear for Women. As seen on TV modeled by Lisa Rinna and Cheryl Burke, Silhouette underwear are premium-quality disposable undergarments designed to fit and feel like regular underwear.
  • Women who prefer pads might like the comfortable curved shape of new Poise Hourglass. The tapered midsection offers a better, more comfortable fit, for confident protection during summertime activities. Individually wrapped in purple paisley print, a Poise Hourglass pad is easy to stash and discreetly carry in even a small purse
