Living with incontinence can impact your life in ways you may not realize at first. Knowing what to expect and planning ahead can reduce frustration and stress. The type of clothing you wear is one example. Ideally, you want to wear clothing that makes your life easier. Your clothing choices might be guided by your incontinence management plan. Here are some ideas to consider.
If you use incontinence pads, choose briefs over boxers for a snug fit. You also have the option of specially designed boxers. These include a special pouch that holds the pad in place. Adult absorbent underwear is available in both step in and sides opening varieties. Choose the correct size to avoid leaks and sagging.
Easy off pants make changing after accidents easier. They can also help you avoid accidents. Options include elastic waist and side zippers, so you don’t waste time fumbling with buttons and belts. Both are available in fleece, denim, khaki and shorts styles. Many new vendors make options that are stylish, comfortable and convenient widely available. Avoid clothing that is too tight and choose pants with a high enough waist band so that you don’t see the top of the absorbent. Alternatively, you can choose to wear a long, untucked shirt to cover the absorbent. Easy off pants are especially helpful for caregivers.
Here again, comfort and convenience are the name of the game. Choose shoes with non-slip soles to minimize risk of slip and fall when rushing to the bathroom. Consider slip-ons to ease changing with accidents unless you are wearing pants with a side zipper.
