She has urinary incontinence. I’ve tried the correct size, a larger size. The complaint is always they are too tight or when loose, they are riding up into her crotch area. She claims they’re unbearable.


Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I cannot wear Kotex brand products. The Always brand I felt were sticking to me. Its probably the same with disposable panties. The plastic on the pants could be uncomfortable or the brand is irritating,

Have you tried cloth incontinence briefs? I’m guessing you might have to experiment with a few different types and styles, and they’re pricey, but if disposables aren’t working at all, they might be worth it.
I found them by googling “Fabric Incontinence Briefs For Women”. Hope you can find something that helps.

XenaJada. When my forth child was a baby, I made the switch from disposable pads to cloth, partly due to the environmental factor, but mostly due to the comfort factor, or maybe I should say the discomfort factor of disposable paper ones.

This topic is an excellent reminder as to how we as mothers often overlook taking into consideration our babies comfort when it comes to diapering. We simply choose a diaper based on what's best for our own situation/needs, rather than what's best for baby.

As we get older, we tend to be less able to tolerate plastic and wood fiber products next to our skin for long periods of time. I found this to be true regarding menstrual products causing irritation.

Look into reusable adult diapers or adult nappies. These should be much more tolerable to use during the daytime and you could supplement them with an incontinence pad and/or waterproof pad in her chair. Try to get her to the bathroom more during the day and of course she would need to be changed more, but she'd still probably be more comfortable.

Check out a brand called Wellness Briefs.

I thought the always discrete brand seemed softer than depends, but then I wasn't the one wearing them. Could she make due with an incontinence pad and her regular panties? (The extra long heavy absorbency ones do hold a lot)

Sam's club brand, they have all the latest technology and are very soft, no plastic around the legs, not bulky.

I would try a pair yourself to see if it is real or psychological.
