Why Choose Adult Disposable Underwear

Nowadays, there are many different kinds of incontinence products for seniors and adults with incontinence. There are adult disposable diapers as well as reusable diapers and pull ups, in addition to many other helpful products. The amount of different kinds of incontinence products available these days is astonishing. And yet, even with the almost endless amount of options, an inordinate amount of individuals choose to stick with disposable incontinence underwear. Here are some of their reasons for doing so. 

The Feel: Like Standard Underwear 

Disposable incontinence underwear was purposefully designed to feel like your typical pair of underwear, while still providing the necessary protection. The outer fabric is comprised of a comfortable, cloth-like material that almost lets the wearer forget what he’s wearing. Many people appreciate this, and will use disposable incontinence underwear only for this reason alone. 

The Absorbency: Locks in Liquids & Odors

Adult disposable briefs wick liquid away from the body, and lock it into the absorbent core. They also often keep odors more contained. These briefs usually feature inner leg cuffs, to prevent liquid from leaking out of the diaper from the space around each leg. Some adult disposable diapers have wetness indicators, which make it easy to see when the diaper requires changing. 

The Practicality

Adult disposable briefs are one of the most efficient methods of managing incontinence. There’s no laundry involved. After a brief gets soiled, all that’s necessary for the wearer or caregiver to do is chuck it in the trash. This is not only time-saving; it can prevent potentially awkward situations. 

These briefs can be worn both at home and while traveling, and won’t ever require an emergency trip to the laundromat. 

The Many Different Sizes

Another benefit to adult briefs is that they are available in many different sizes. There are options for just about everyone, regardless of size or body shape. 

How to Choose Adult Disposable Underwear

Now that you’re aware of how practical, convenient and relatively comfortable these underwear are, you may feel ready to start shopping. Before you do so, we encourage you to read this guide so that you can be aware of what you should look out for when searching for disposable briefs for adults. 

Level of Absorbency

This is likely the most important aspect to take note of. The purpose of adult incontinence briefs is to hold in liquid well enough that leaks don’t occur. In order find disposable pull up underwear that will absorb and therefore contain liquid the way the wearer needs it to, it's important to figure out what level of absorbency the wearer requires. Take a look at the chart below for a synopsis of the four standard levels of incontinence, and choose products accordingly. 

Light

Light amount of urine or infrequent leaks
Moderate

Moderate amount of urine or continuous leakage
Heavy

Large amount of urine and/or fecal incontinence
Maximum / Overnight

Very large amount of urine and/or fecal incontinence

Type of Incontinence

The type of incontinence makes a difference as to what kind of product you should be getting. Here are the most common types of incontinence, and which adult disposable pants products are best for each. The date below is suitable for those who plan on changing often (i.e. at least every 2-3 hours).

Type of Incontinence Required Level of Absorbency

Stress Incontinence

Minimal bladder leakage caused by coughing, sneezing or physical exertion.

Light to Moderate

-

Overflow Incontinence

Frequent or constant dribbling due to inability to fully empty the bladder. 

Light to Moderate

-

Urge Incontinence

Uncontrollable urination following a sudden, intense urge to urinate.

Heavy to Maximum

-

Functional Incontinence

Uncontrolled urination due to a physical disability or mental impairment. 

Heavy to Maximum

-

Frequency of Changes

This should significantly influence your final choice. If you want disposable incontinence pants that you can wear all night long, or for any 8-hour stretch, you’ll likely need overnight, but if you plan on changing every 1 or 2 hours, a disposable incontinence brief with less absorbency will probably do the trick.

Mobility Level

A person who is always on the move should be sure to get disposable protective underwear with elasticized leg openings. This will help prevent urine from leaking out of the leg holes when moving about. 

Cost

Here are a few tips to help you save money on your disposable adult underwear: First of all, bear in mind that wearing a product that is more absorbent and therefore necessitates fewer changes can come out to be cheaper than low-cost products that require immediate changing.
