Top Tips

  1. For longer trips out when your incontinence pad is likely to become heavily wet, waterproof plastic pants worn over your pad provides added security and prevents accidental leaks. If you don't like the idea of plastic pants there are alternatives available that are made from a coated breathable nylon fabric that remains cool and comfortable even in the summer

  3. I find a booster pad with thicker pad underneath offers better protection for longer

  5. Net pants supplied to be worn over disposable pads do not always provide sufficient support to keep your pad close fitting when your pad becomes heavy after a good wetting. Try wearing shaping, full knickers that are sufficiently stretchy to hold your wet pad in place. Choose wide crotch knickers with a high elastane content for stretch and support available from a well know retailer or on-line in a range of styles. Close fitting vinyl knickers may be worn for added security for heavy wetters.

  7. I find that using a shorter thicker pad rather than a longer thinner pad gives more protection due to higher absorbency where it is needed.
