A review of some of the best incontinence products
on the market today. 
Having the right incontinence products can take a pesky problem and turn it into only a slight nuisance. The right products for managing incontinence can help make day-to-day life easier and “normal”.

However, one of the challenges most people with incontinence face when it comes to management is finding the right products to use. There are tons of different styles, options, brands, sizes, and more which can make selecting the right product not only expensive by very overwhelming.

Reading reviews and talking to a product expert can help to narrow down the choices, and make selection easier. And trying to products out will help you know for sure that you not only found the right product for your needs, but for your specific situation. There is often a little trial and error involved, but education yourself will help speed up the process and get you on your way to better managing your incontinence symptoms.

You can find a huge selection, and expert help for selecting management products for incontinence and help selecting incontinence products with the Incontinence Product Finder. But let’s take a look at some of the top brands, and review some of the best incontinence products on the market today.

Prevail:  Prevail is the number one selling brand in North America, and offers more choices, sizes, and absorbencies than any other brand and lower prices. They are innovators, offering products such as boxers for men who do not want to wear briefs just because they have incontinence. The Prevail Boxer is designed to look and feel like regular cotton boxers, but offer protection you would get from other incontinence products.

Abena Abri-Flex: When looking for a pull-up product, particularly for overnight wear, this is an excellent choice. It has high elastic thread count, and an elasticized crotch which makes it a great fit with less chance of leaks. This product comes in several sizes and absorbencies to help meet the needs of the individual, and can be a pull up or recloseable tab.  Abena incontinence products focus on green manufacturing, meaning they are made with little waste, and use products only harvested reforested areas. This comes with a higher price tag, but the quality justifies the price.

Depend Adjustable Underwear: These are a well-known brand, that is easy to find. Depend are known for absorbency more than fit. They are convenient in that they can be changed easily when out and about. They do offer tapes that can be refastened for a snug fit, and are rated well for comfort. These are a good day time protection option.

Poise: Poise offers a complete line of bladder control pads typically for women with light bladder leakage. They offer thin liners to thick pads for a range of absorbency, but are best known for their comfortable fit, and protection against leaks. They are designed to fit right so there is no bunching or twisting which can lead to leaks.

Attends: If you need excellent leakage protection, but do not suffer from severe incontinence, this is the option for you. It does not have as good of absorbency as Abena Abri-Flex, but is a great budget choice for those not looking for extended wear. There are two available options, Attends Underwear Super Plus Absorbency with Leakage Barriers and Attends Underwear Extra Absorbency. The Super Plus style has inner leg cuffs, which act as an additional barrier for leaks.
