Finding the Right Fit for Your Incontinence Products

Incontinence can be an uncomfortable or even embarrassing problem. Fortunately, there are many available options on the market that make dealing with the issue easier. It's important to choose the right product and the right size for your individual need. If you don't have the right fit in your incontinence products, you are immediately setting yourself up for the product's failure. Finding the correct size depends on the type of product you choose.

Adult briefs have a traditional design with adhesive tabs on each side to secure. The first step in finding the right fit is to obtain a waist measurement. Each brand of adult brief features a size chart on the package, and your size selection should be determined by which size includes your waist size. Make sure to check the package you are buying, especially if switching brands, as each brand has its own size chart. If your waist is larger than 60 inches or you weigh more than 300 pounds, a bariatric brief may be a better option. They are fitted with flexible tabs to ensure a better fit.

If adult underwear, which pull on similar to traditional underwear, seem like a better option for you, determine your waist size first. Just like briefs, each brand of adult underwear has a unique size chart on its package which you can use to find your waist size and choose your size. Another option in incontinence products is the choice of a liner or pad. Liners and pads are a bit more complicated in determining the proper fit for your personal needs. They come in various sizes and shapes and it's important to look at the amount of coverage and absorbency you require. If you are concerned with only small amounts of incontinence, thin and narrow pads may be the option for you. On the other hand, if you are concerned with larger amounts the products that offer full coverage and specify maximum absorbency are a better choice for you. These products may require a bit more trial and error in discovering the best option for you. With a little bit of time and thought, you will find the right fit for your incontinence products.
