Let’s get real and talk leakage. Without embarrassment. I mean why should there be any about it? If our windows are leaking air we don’t hedge around the issue, we even talk freely about leaky guts, but when it comes to bladder leakage then we get all close mouthed and red faced.
It’s sad that there is a stigma around it, even more so because it’s not all just a part of getting older. It’s a true fact that more people with bladder leakage are in their 20’s than their 80’s! More people with bladder leakage are 50 or younger than 60 or older! I bet those statistics may have shocked you.
In support of the millions of women who may need a different kind of underwear, the Depend brand is introducing Depend Silhouette Active Fit briefs, a new moderate-absorbency brief featuring a thin design for complete comfort and the trusted protection of Depend brand. Depend Silhouette Active Fit briefs have a lower rise, which I really appreciate, so that I can wear it with all of my clothing, giving it the feel of a regular pair of underwear and without looking like a bulky brief. Depend is also the first brand who has manufactured absorbency briefs in a package that contains both black and beige colors.
These are incredibly thin, there really is no bulk at all. Can you see my fingernail with its polish underneath the top of it? And the absorbency liner is similar to a pad that you would wear during a monthly cycle.
I DO use this product. Regularly. And I will be writing another post in the future letting you know further why and when I use them. Having taken up running this year, let me tell you light bladder leakage can be a reality every time one of my feet hits the pavement. Today though I want to focus on what Depend is doing for others and what it can offer you.
The Depend brand is entering their second year of Underwareness, a social movement and charitable cause to break down the bladder leakage stigma. Hooray! Because there shouldn’t be a stigma attached to something that affects 1 in 3 American women. As part of Underwareness, Depend is:
Encouraging people to show their support for women with bladder leakage. For every photo and video shared using #Underwareness, the Depend brand will donate $1, up to $3 million, through 2016 to fund charities that advance the research and education of bladder leakage.
