A few weeks ago I was asked to review the Wearever Incontinence Underwear. I was a little put off by that request, but then I decided that it WAS something that women of all ages need to know about. So, I agreed to go ahead with the review. I received the panties last week, and they really ARE nice panties.
When I was in my 40′s, I had a problem with incontinence. I had birthed large babies, from 8 lbs. 4 oz to 10 lbs. 8 oz. Because of that, I developed a problem where when I sneezed or laughed, I couldn’t control my urine. I could be anywhere: Wal-Mart, out to dinner with friends, visiting at someone else’s house. If I sneezed or laughed, I would pee on the floor! It was so embarrassing! I had surgery when I was 46 to correct it and have not had a problem with incontinence since then. But, it would have been nice to have known about these panties way back then.
Wearever Incontinence Underwear comes in three levels of absorbency. The Light absorbency holds up to 4 ounces; Moderate absorbency holds up from 4 ounces to 10 ounces; and the Heavy absorbency holds up to 12 ounces of liquid. They have styles for both men and women. I have to say that the panties they sent me are very nice. The cotton panties are very soft, and the blue floral and lacey ones are very pretty! From their website:
Choose Women’s Incontinence Panties by Wearever for maximum protection and reusability. Our selection of absorbent female incontinence panties feature sewn-in Unique-Dri™ pads that trap liquid and are treated with odor eliminating Agion™ antimicrobial fibers. Eversures offers cotton, lace, and nylon microfiber styles to meet every preference. More economical than disposables Wearever incontinence underwear is recommended good for 200-250 washes
I decided to put these panties to the test, to see if they really would hold the amount of liquid the company said they would. The panties I received were the light absorbency ones, so they should hold 4 ounces of liquid, or half a cup. Please note, after I finished editing the following video, I realized that I referred to the panties hold 1/4 of liquid a couple of times. I should have said 1/2 cup.
I would like to add here, that even though these panties are marketed towards people with incontinence, since I had the opportunity to see them in person, I think they would also be great for someone who has a heavy menstrual cycle. I used to have a heavy flow, and often had “accidents” and wound up with very embarrassing spots on the back of my clothing. If I had some of these innovative panties back then, it sure would have helped prevent that.
