Find a style and brand that suits your needs.
If you find yourself experiencing urinary incontinence, we’ve got some good news: You’re definitely not alone.
Moreover, it can be caused by a number of extenuating circumstances, including:
Though there are treatment options available that can potentially cure urinary incontinence, specially designed products can help to prevent leakage in the interim.
Thankfully, there are more options than ever when it comes to this type of undergarment. From stylish, reusable panties to colorful pads that can be stored discreetly in your favorite bag, brands are swapping bulky undies for stylish, supportive panties. Some brands have even created equally fashion-forward options for men.
Peruse some of our favorite options in incontinence underwear and pads below, but take note, the Office on Women’s Health recommends speaking with a healthcare professional if you do experience urinary incontinence.
- Cost: Free trial and then $54.99 a box
- Available at: Willow
If you’re new to incontinence underwear, Willow Women’s might be a great place to start. The monthly subscription box begins with a month-long free trial (you just have to cover $4.99 for shipping), which gives you time to test out the feel and fit of its disposable undies.
Once the trial is over, you can decide how often you’d like to receive the underwear and plans can be cancelled at any time.
Available in multiple neutral colors and sizes, Willow’s undies received top marks from online reviewers for feeling like a regular pair of underwear and its unnoticeable fit under clothing. The only downside is the products are made to be worn only once and then disposed. However, Willow does create its underwear using natural fibers and cuts back on the packaging.
- Cost: $39
- Available at: Icon
Icon created a variety of styles — from thongs to bikini cut — to suit your wardrobe and absorbency needs. Each pair of underwear holds up to eight teaspoons of liquid, except for the thong which only holds three.
If you’re new to the brand, Icon says its Hi-Waist style is their best-seller, and based on online reviews, it’s easy to see why. Customers frequently praise the underwear for being comfortable and stylish but still sexy, and some were excited to find no visible panty lines while wearing.
Along with basic black and nude-colored underwear, the brand recently unveiled a summer-inspired periwinkle shade, and rose and midnight (navy blue) are also options.
- Cost: $34.90
- Available at: Confitex
You don’t have to sacrifice on style when it comes to incontinence underwear. The Confitex Women’s Full Brief Basic comes in three fun colors and its lace-trimmed edges make for a comfortable and cute fit.
Briefs can be washed and then reused, and their underwear are made of material that’s washer and dryer friendly. Although most online reviewers praised the product, some customers did warn that they struggled with finding a proper fit and advised those considering a purchase to carefully review the sizing chart.
- Cost: $29.90
Made of nylon and Lycra, the Canyon underwear from Fannypants was created to give a seamless fit without the appearance of panty lines.
Available in multiple colors — including a sky blue and copper — underwear contains a stitched-on pad to hold liquid. Although you can toss these panties in the wash and reuse, Fannypants doesn’t recommend using a dryer, instead suggesting line-drying.
If you find yourself in love with the Canyon style, Fannypants also features additional collections for women, and multiple lines for men.
- Cost: $20
- Available at: Time
The diversity in sizing is what makes Time for Me a great choice for customers looking for a custom fit. Created for heavy absorbency, the high-waisted underwear can hold up to 10 ounces of liquid.
Despite the numerous sizing options available, online reviewers did warn that the product ran smaller than expected. One customer also said they experienced a lack of odor protection.
Incontinence underwear isn’t your only option for protection. Pads, available in reusable and disposable variations, are also a favorite among online customers.
HestaOrganic Washable Incontinence Pads
- Cost: $29.90–$35.90
- Available at: Hesta
Available in three sizes, these cloth pads are washable and reusable and can last up to two to three years. It’s recommended that those with a heavy flow use a pad with wings, while its lighter, straight pad was made for more flexibility.
Although some online reviewers liked that the product was able to provide them with an entire day of protection, others experienced leakage — even when selecting a heavier size.
Wegreeco Bamboo Reusable Sanitary Pads
- Cost: $14.99 for a 5 pack
- Available at: Amazon
Have some fun with your choice of protection and choose one of these colorful incontinence pads. Created with a bamboo charcoal inner fabric, pads can be rewashed and reused, but Wegreeco does recommend changing your pad every two to six hours, or as needed.
Along with cute designs, the pads come with a waterproof carrying case to hold new and used pads. Online reviewers liked the addition of the bag, but some did note that the pads were longer in size than expected, and others felt the snap-on closure didn’t prevent the pad from sliding during daily wear.
There are a number of incontinence products out there, so finding the right one may feel overwhelming. Whether you prefer a colorful pad or wish to wear an adorable pair of lacy undies, it’s your choice and should be based on your individual needs.
