8 Tips to discreetly conceal your absorbent products under clothing

Individuals with incontinence or bladder leakage often feel self-conscious about wearing their continence care supplies around others. Women and men who worry about concealing their products under their clothes may even refrain from venturing out in public or not wear the protective products they need when they're out and about.

  It may take some trial and error, but you can wear an absorbent product under your clothes without anyone knowing. 

  1. Choose the right size

    You can apply this tip to both your continence care product and your clothing. The key to managing bladder leakage is to ensure that your incontinence product fits properly, especially around the leg openings. Overflow and leakage can be caused by too loose openings, while discomfort and rashes can be caused by too tight openings. It is also important to make sure you are wearing the right size. A brief or pull-on should fit comfortably around your waist and not gape at the back. Try going up a size in clothing, especially jeans. As a result, you will feel less restricted while wearing your absorbent underwear. 

  2. Choose the right product type 

    One of the most important things you can do to help manage your bladder leakage and incontinence is to use the right continence care product that fits your specific needs and level of incontinence. Light leakage is often treated with bladder control pads and male guards. Briefs (sometimes called diapers) offer protection from heavy and frequent incontinence while protective underwear, or pull-ons, are suitable for moderate absorbency. The activity you are doing may also require a different product.

  3. Try something loose fitting 

    You can conceal your continence care products discreetly with skirts, dresses, tunics, sweatpants, and other loose fitting clothing.

  4. High waisted jeans will be your BFF 

    Whether you are a man or a woman, jeans are a great option because they will help muffle any sounds that your protective undergarments may make. High waisted jeans are a stylish option that conceals protective underwear or briefs. Furthermore, they keep your waistband snug and in place all day long.

  5. Double Up 

    You can keep your protective underwear in place by wearing regular underwear or fitted boxers over them. As well as muffle any noise your products may make, it will also reduce any sagging. Tights are another great option for adding additional security while wearing protective undergarments.

  6. Wear dark clothing 

    Wearing dark clothing, especially on your lower half, can help you feel more comfortable wearing incontinence products in public. An accident or overflow can be concealed by dark jeans, skirts, dresses, and slacks.

  7. Try lighter absorbency products during the day 

    The heaviest leakage occurs during the night for many people with incontinence. A frequent trip to the bathroom during the day can often manage leakage during the day. During the day, you can use lighter products if this fits your level of incontinence and lifestyle. As a result, you will feel more comfortable with your products since they are less bulky.
