Up to 25% of men experience some type of incontinence, according to the Urology Care Foundation. Yet research shows men are far less likely to discuss the problem with their loved ones or doctor.

Thankfully, the stigma around male incontinence is starting to change. More men are speaking up, and over the last decade, many companies have begun manufacturing incontinence products specifically for men. 

Since there are so many male incontinence products, we’ve created this round-up of our 7 best pull-up underwear for men. By the time you’re finished reading, you’ll be familiar with some of the brands in the space, know which features to look for, and how to choose the perfect fit. 

What Are Male Pull-ups?

Male pull-ups are disposable incontinence products that look like regular underwear. They’re made from materials like cotton or polyester and have a padded lining that absorbs moisture, keeping the wearer dry. 

Male pull-ups don’t have adjustable tabs like diapers. Instead, their unique design supports the male anatomy, ensuring a perfect fit. Moreover, they come in various colors, including navy blue, black, and steely grey.

The products featured in this list are a mix of our “highest-rated” and “best-selling” pull-up underwear for men.

How to Choose the Best Pull-Up Underwear for Men

Before buying male pull-up underwear for yourself or a loved one, it’s important to consider various factors, including:

  • Absorbency - How much protection do you need?

  • Odor prevention - Are you worried about potential smells?

  • The material the pull-up is made from - Some men’s pull-ups are made of clothlike materials, while others have a combination of polymers and fabric (similar to diapers with tabs.)

  • Type of incontinence - Some pull-ups support urinary incontinence; others support urinary and fecal incontinence.

  • Lifestyle - When do you need the most protection? If you’re worried about accidents at night, you need a pull-up with lots of absorbency. Light protection should suffice if you just want to avoid trips to the toilet while running errands.

Commonly Asked Questions

1. Can I wear a pull-up overnight?

It depends. Some men’s pull-ups are designed for daytime use, while others provide up to 12 hours of incontinence protection. If you want to sleep soundly without having to worry about accidents, we recommend Depend Night Defense pull-up underwear for men.

2. How do I find the right size of a male pull-up?

Finding the right size of a male pull-up is much different than finding a new pair of pants. To ensure accuracy, measure the following:

  • The width of your waist (just below the bellybutton)

  • The width of your hips (in inches)

Write those numbers down and compare them to the product’s “size chart.” Most incontinence product size charts have “brackets” with waist/hip measurements. Use the larger of the two numbers when referencing the sizing guide

3. Are men’s pull-up underwear flushable?

No. When you finish wearing pull-up underwear, rip the tear-away sides and throw the garment into the trash.
