There are a number of factors you should take into consideration when purchasing disposable underwear or briefs, including fit, comfort, quality, absorbency, and price.
Finding the right size and fit is crucial. Utilizing brand sizing charts is a great way to make sure you're choosing the correct-fitting garment.
Each brand has grids and sizing charts. Sizing charts utilize height, weight, and/or patient measurements of the hips/waist to determine product sizing. You can use a size chart by measuring your waist and hips and then referring to the chart to find the corresponding product size.
Comfort is about both fit and softness. Disposable underwear or briefs that pull, pinch, ride up, tear, or generally make your life unhappy should be replaced. Underwear should be comfortable and personalized to fit your proportion.
Quality and absorbency go hand-in-hand. The perfect product absorbs fluids while pulling the fluids away from the skin, also known as wicking, leaving the skin feeling dry. Using products that promote wicking of the fluids and holding the fluids in the core of the garment help maintain healthy skin integrity.
Several brands specifically state the amount of fluids absorbed in their products. Depending on individual needs, products range from light to heavy incontinence.
Price does play a role in finding the right incontinence product. Finding the cheapest brand doesn't necessarily mean that you're saving money overall.
Changing the underwear or briefs multiple times throughout a day due to lack of absorbency can end up costing more money in the long run.
The ideal product should be absorbing and comfortable. Products lasting 6 to 8 hours can provide a good night's sleep as the need for nighttime elimination is gone. Long-lasting products will also allow for continued socialization when you're out-and-about, minimizing embarrassment and the need to change multiple times throughout the day.
