Pads for Urinary Incontinence
Thursday, 8 July 2021
Whether you need pads for the odd leak when you sneeze or something a bit more substantial, we have products to suit your need.
Stress Incontinence is when you can leak a small drop of urine when your bladder is under stress, like coughing or sneezing.We have many people come to us who want a small pad for occasional leaks. You can use a liner for these leaks and we have some with a variety of toppings.
If you want a super dry feeling then you could consider the Nora Panty Liner or Nora Mini.
For a more natural fabric then the Imse Vimse Slim Active Panty Liner or Ellas House Mini Moon pads have a lovely cotton topping that make the pad really breathable against your skin, especially if you need to wear them every day.
Extra Protection - Higher Absorbency
We have many customers who want some extra protection such as post baby for when they start exercising again. For this situation then we cannot recommend period underwear enough. Despite their name, the underwear is great for absorbing fluid all around and helps you feel nice and dry. The Cheeky Mama sports pants, WUKA Basics Medium, or Flux Boy Shorts Light are great for exercise and giving you that extra protection.
If you have urge incontinence and require heavier protection then look at the Mini Vivi Pads. These are hand made and designed for higher levels of urinary incontinence. Mini Vivi Pads have anti wicking fleece wings, with a charcoal fleece back and a core made of hemp/cotton blend. You can choose whether you prefer a bamboo velour top of a cotton jersey top. Bamboo velour is very quick to absorb so if you have heavier incontinence, or lose a larger volume in one go then this would be the best option for you. You can get different sized Mini Vivi pads and the size you choose will depend on your body shape and your absorbency needs.
