New Female Underwear Makes Incontinence Fashionable (and Washable)
The first-ever fashionable panty designed with light incontinence in mind has hit the market this fall.
Known as STRIDE Everyday, the underwear styles range from Seamless to Thongs to French Cut and Lace; and each design contains a washable absorbent pad designed to wick away wetness of light leaks caused by stress incontinence.
For active women with light leaking, this fashionable lingerie absorbs up to one ounce of moisture. The interior pad wicks away moisture to keep the panty deodorized and dry. They are also machine washable, making them easy to clean.
A washable padded panty designed for these leaks not only provides comfort and fashion, but it also saves money and waste caused from disposable liners. From Wendy Spencer, the founder of STRIDE Everyday:
"All women experience some sort of light leak in their lifetime," explains Spencer.
"Whether it's a new mom looking for a cost-effective solution that helps her feel like a woman again, or an avid runner looking for comfortable protection while she's on the treadmill, STRIDE Everyday offers a range of solutions for all kinds of women. They can also help reduce the billions of disposable pads and pantiliners sent to landfill every year".
And this is a key point to the usefulness of such a panty; incontinence pads can be expensive for those with daily incontinence; and with over 50% of females in the United States experiencing some form of incontinence in their lifetime, the most sustainable, cost-savings, and convenient solutions are absolutely the most desirable solutions.
