For anyone that has ever had bladder problems or incontinence issues, wearing diapers is a well known and embarrassing part of life. They are used as a temporary treatment for urine leaking or uncontrollable bladder movement.
One of the most common misconceptions is that only old people wear diapers. This is far from the truth. Many types of people wear them and require them to live a comfortable and normal life. Even handicapped teenagers may need them – so diapers are not limited to those over the age of 65. With this in mind, choosing a diaper that matches your body size is important. Larger ones are more comfortable for larger individuals, and vice versa.
Proper absorbency for your condition is also something to keep in mind. If the person regularly urinates himself often, then a more absorbent diaper is needed. Those with only light spotting can probably use a much thinner material with less “padding.” The right level of absorbency will also allow you to exercise freely and move about your normal life without any embarrassment.
Clearly an easily disguised undergarment is also desirable. There is nothing comfortable about something that everyone can easily see. For that reason, many companies are specializing in developing diapers that are virtually undetectable. They fight odor quickly and work to keep you both dry and comfortable throughout the day.
There are a number of diaper types that are made with chemicals such as formaldehyde. This can cause irritation on the sensitive areas of the buttocks and pubic area, especially if the person has allergies. Elderly people and many that require diapers are sensitive to chemicals and harsh additives that are used in diapers. Be careful when purchasing them and choose ones that are hypoallergenic.
Another good option to look for, but isn’t quite necessary, is using a reusable diaper. Depending on your condition and exact needs, there are several options for reusable diapers. They can be washable and fitted to your body. They are harder to find but easy to access if you know where to look. Of course, disposable ones are likely best for those that do not want to handle their waste.
Diapers come in a variety of styles and sizes. There is certainly an option for anyone that needs some control over an embarrassing problem. Even if they are used for temporary problem solving, it’s a good idea to choose ones that you know will be comfortable and suit your lifestyle.
