Adult Briefs: Adult Diapers with Tabs

Adult briefs, or adult diapers with tabs, are designed for maximum wearable incontinence protection, with highly-absorbent cores and a variety of sizes to ensure a secure fit. Most diapers for adults are made with dry technology, an important part of maintaining skin integrity. By absorbing moisture quickly and locking the fluids inside the core, the skin is kept dry and safe from harm. Read more...

Get adult diapers if you’re dealing with moderate to heavy incontinence, especially if the patient is bed-bound. Severe fecal incontinence is also best managed with adult diapers. With their large area of coverage and highly absorbent cores, adult diapers provide the highest level of incontinence protection available. Similar to adult pull ups, adult briefs have tabs for easier removal when the user is bed-ridden or dependent on a caregiver, and are therefore recommended for less active individuals. If you’re looking for women’s or men’s diapers, keep in mind that incontinence diapers are not gender specific and any brief can be purchased for either men or women.


Choosing the Best Adult Diapers

When choosing adult diapers, be sure to keep the following considerations in mind:

1. Reusable vs. Disposable Briefs: When purchasing adult diapers, many individuals choose to save money and benefit the environment by choosing reusable adult diapers, although most people prefer disposable for the convenience of being able to simply toss them after use. Other benefits of disposable adult diapers include the large selection and often higher absorbency levels available.

When you make the decision of disposable vs. reusable briefs, keep in mind whether this will be a long-term or short-term solution, as well as your budget and time constraints.

2. Absorbency: While all adult briefs are designed to absorb high amounts of liquid, not all diapers are created equal, and the absorbency level will vary from one product to another. If the level of incontinence you are dealing with is moderate to high, consider a moderate or heavy absorbency level brief. For very heavy incontinence or overnight protection, consider a diaper designed specifically for overnight use.

If you find that even with the appropriate absorbency level products, your patient or loved one is still leaking, we recommend purchasing bed pads to act as a secondary level of protection and protect your bedding and furniture from damage.

3. Size: To ensure the best fit when selecting an adult diaper size, check the measurement of the user’s waist and compare it with the recommended waist size for the brief in question. This is especially important since size names like small, medium and large vary greatly from one manufacturer to the next – and even one product to the next and cannot be relied upon for accurate sizing selection. When choosing briefs for adults, you may also want to look out for extra features such as odor control, breathable side panels, cloth-like outer material for a quieter and more discreet wear, as well as dry technology to ensure that the liquid is drawn away from the skin to prevent skin damage.


Buying the right size and absorbency level is important, so if you don’t already know exactly what you’re looking for, try our money-back samples program before you make your final decision.
