About Knit Underwear
Knit incontinence underpants can be used with a variety of incontinence liners and pads to promote comfort and security. The discreet, seamless design of these knit underwear helps prevent skin irritation. With both disposable and reusable options, these high-quality knit clothing can be disposed of after each use for convenience, or washed over and over again if you or your loved one prefers an economical option.
What is the best undergarment for incontinence?
At Carewell, we provide leading, medical-grade incontinence products like underpads, wipes, and absorbent underwear for daytime and nighttime protection. If you’re looking to make a decision on which underwear is best to wear with an incontinence product, it depends on the incontinence product you’re using:
- Adult Briefs or Pull-Ups. Most often, those using these products do not need underwear on top at all. If you’d prefer a cover as an additional layer of protection, try an adult diaper cover.
- Incontinence pads, male guards, and pant liners: These are best worn either with regular underwear or with knit underwear, depending on your needs.
- Postpartum pads: If you’re wearing a large pad due to post-partum bleeding, a knit underwear is the best way to go. They’ll keep your pad in place but provide extra breathability and comfort.
What can help female incontinence?
Kegel exercises, or Kegels, are an easy way to reduce the symptoms of several types of incontinence such as stress incontinence and urge incontinence. Kegels strengthen your pelvic floor, a group of muscles that support your small intestine, bladder, and rectum.
What is urge incontinence caused by?
There are many potential causes of urge incontinence, but two common causes are:
- Weak or damaged pelvic floor muscles. When these muscles are unable to properly support the bladder, urine can leak out when you cough, sneeze, or laugh.
- Overactive bladder muscles. Your bladder's muscles contract (squeeze) more frequently than they should if you have an overactive bladder. You feel the need to urinate before your bladder is actually full as a result of this.
Are incontinence pants better than pads?
Incontinence pads are appropriate for those who struggle with using the restroom and need extra protection with discretion, and want the security attached to their everyday undergarments. Protective Underwear is ideal for those that have slightly heavier incontinence or full voids.
