It happens to almost all of us at some time or another. Pregnancy, childbirth, and aging can cause it so many of us are not immune. Do you know that sudden feeling of panic when you’re about to sneeze or laugh? Sometimes even lifting a semi-heavy object like a child or groceries can trigger it. I’m talking about light bladder leakage. No, you’re not alone. It happens to me on occasion and it has probably happened to more than half of your friends even if they don’t talk about it.
Depend has a new product that can help. The Depend Silhouette active fit brief is designed to look and feel like regular panties but give you the protection and security that you need.
After the birth of my first son fifteen years ago I started to notice that every once in a while a sneeze would leave me a little damp. It was horrified! At 26 years old I was experiencing something that I thought only older women had to worry about. I suffered in silence and every time I had to sneeze I made sure to cross my legs just in case.
Eleven years later I gave birth to my second son and I was obviously eleven years older. In those eleven years, I started to experience sneezing accidents a bit more frequently and then after the birth of my son it wasn’t just sneezing that had the potential to cause leaks. Now if I lift something just right, though rare (for now), I can still end up with a little surprise. Because I never know when it will happen or what will cause it I wear a pantyliner every day just in case. Pantyliners aren’t designed for bladder accidents though so I decided to give the Depend Active Fit briefs a try since they are thin and no one but I will know that I’m wearing it.
They come in two colors which is nice so that they are even more discreet under clothes.
Honestly, for my needs the Active Fit briefs were overkill. I only have occasional issues when I sneeze and it’s a very small amount but for those of you with a more active bladder, I would suggest giving them a try. They’re very thin and super absorbent!
Inside the brief is an absorbent core:
I poured a cup of water on them to test out how much they could absorb, which is likely more liquid than anyone would urinate. It absorbed almost instantly and none of it leaked out.
Even when I squeezed it, none of the liquid came out.
So if you are in need of moderate to heavy bladder protection I would check out the Depend Silhoutte Active Fit briefs. So visit Depend for your free sample today!
