A Guide to Find the Best Incontinence Underwear for Women

Midway through menopause, I noticed that whenever I coughed, sneezed, or laughed too hard, I'd pee a wee bit, which of course alarmed me. But once I learned it was normal, I stopped worrying about it. Then I hit my sixties and found it even harder to hold my bladder, especially when I was on long road trips with nary a bathroom in sight. My husband, who is a few years older, was already experiencing little "accidents" if he had to wait any length of time to get to a bathroom. However, we both swore we wouldn't be the people who wore disposable underwear unless there was no other choice. Fortunately, there IS another choice, thanks to the people at Carer Health Company who have developed top-quality, leak-proof underwear.

Here's an informative guide from Carer Health on the best incontinence underwear for women: 

A Guide to Find the Best Incontinence Underwear for Women

Incontinence is a common issue that many women face at various stages of life. Fortunately, modern innovations in textile technology have led to the development of women's incontinence underwear that offers comfort, confidence, and peace of mind. This guide aims to assist women in selecting the best incontinence underwear by outlining essential features, key considerations, and maintenance tips.

Features to Look for in Leak-Proof Underwear for Women

  • Absorbency Levels

Different women experience varying degrees of incontinence, ranging from light leakage to more severe cases. It's crucial to select underwear with absorbency levels that match your needs. Manufacturers often categorize their products based on absorbency, making it easier for you to find the right fit.

  • Material

Comfort is paramount, and the material of the underwear plays a vital role in achieving this. Look for underwear made from soft, breathable, and moisture-wicking materials that keep you dry and comfortable throughout the day. Additionally, consider hypoallergenic options if you have sensitive skin.

  • Fit and Design

Proper fit is essential for leak-proof underwear. Look for options that offer a snug yet comfortable fit, preventing any gaps that might lead to leakage. Many brands provide a range of sizes and styles to accommodate different body shapes and preferences.

  • Odor Control

Odor control is a significant concern for those dealing with incontinence. High-quality leak-proof underwear often incorporates odor-neutralizing technology to ensure you feel fresh and confident throughout the day.

  • Discreteness

Many women value discretion when it comes to incontinence products. Look for underwear with a discreet design that doesn't draw attention to your condition. This can boost your confidence and help you feel more at ease in social situations.

  • Affordability

Pee panties come in a range of price points. While it's essential to find a product that meets your needs, consider your budget as well. Investing in high-quality underwear can lead to increased comfort and confidence, but there are also budget-friendly options available.

Tips for Maintaining and Using Pee Panties

  • Follow the manufacturer's care instructions to ensure the longevity and effectiveness of the underwear.
  • Be gentle in washing the product and use mild, fragrance-free detergents to avoid damaging the absorbent materials.
  • Air-dry whenever possible to preserve the integrity of the materials and leak-proof layer. If machine drying is allowed, use a low-heat setting to prevent damage.
  • Consider purchasing multiple pairs to rotate and extend the life of each piece.
  • Keep a small travel bag with a spare pair of underwear, especially if you're on the go.
  • Always have a plan for discreet disposal if you need to change underwear while outside.

Fly On The Wall In The Month Of Gratitude

Welcome to another edition of Fly On The Wall group blog postings hosted by Karen of Baking In A Tornado. Today, Karen and I are sharing glimpses of what you would see and hear in our houses if you were a nosy little fly buzzing around. This month, the fly has caught me in a month of reflection and gratitude. Why such deep thoughts? Well, updating a will can do that to you. 

A few weeks ago, Husby and I realized that our will was REALLY old--like written before our last child was born. Yikes! So we had to meet with our lawyer and update everything---a Living Will, the kids' trust, the house deed, insurance policies, etc. It was a heavy conversation with the lawyer and of course, we had to go over all of it again with our adult children. They don't like thinking about the inevitable but we need to make sure they will be well taken care of long after we are gone.  

So, this whole process got me thinking deeply about my husband's and my mortality....and the importance of appreciating the life we have. I spent far too many years of my youth in a quagmire of self-loathing and depression, which often led to suicide ideation. Thankfully, over time I was able to put some of that anxiety aside and seek help. Now I wake every morning feeling incredibly grateful that I've been blessed with another dawn. I also end each day by reading several pages from my bible (the goal is to read it front-to-back---I'm more than halfway through it!) and sending up prayers of gratitude. I know everybody has their own beliefs and their own way of expressing thankfulness--this is just what works best for me!

Counting my blessings has become key to boosting my mental well-being. I have a running list of what I'm grateful for, and of course, it goes without saying that I appreciate my husband, family, friends, pets, home, my health, and my awesome job writing for AARP ( I have the best editors!!). But there are so many other things to be grateful for, too, such as......

DOGS. Especially my snorting, farty, little pugs! I will never stop having a pug by my side. 

CHOCOLATE. I don't even need to explain this one. 

COFFEE. Again, no explanation needed

MUSIC. I love all music, but I just discovered the band Greta Van Fleet and I am officially obsessed.

NEIGHBORS. I have the absolute best people living on my street. We're all close and I adore them!

GARDENS. There is no better place to see God's handiwork, and He has doubly blessed me with an extraordinary backyard (but I also have the ultimate gardener in Husby). Seriously, my heart does a little happy dance when I see the flowers blooming all around me. 

HUMOR. This is super important!! I laugh out loud at least 5 times a day and let me tell you, it is 100% therapeutic!

The list goes on and on...modern medicine, cold weather, hearty crockpot meals, RVing, cruising, squirrels (and all wildlife in general), reconnecting with childhood friends on social media, throwing parties, swimming pools, coloring with my grandbabies, holding hands across the table with Husby while sipping cocktails at an intimate restaurant, watching a thunderstorm from my front porch, kissing and cuddling, trips to St. Augustine.....and last but not least, YOU, dear readers! August 27 marks 12 years since I started blogging, and I wouldn't have gotten this far in my career without your love and support. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
