What are Adult Diapers & Adult Pull-Ups?
Adult Diapers & Adult Pull-Ups:
An adult diaper or adult pull-up is a disposable garment worn instead of underwear to help alleviate leaks from urinary or fecal incontinence. Sometimes adult diapers or pull-ups are only worn while sleeping but this is not always the case. They can be worn during the day or night and they can be worn by anyone regardless of age or gender. There are many different incontinence garments on the market today. How can you determine how well an adult pull-up or adult diaper will work for you? The labels on incontinence garments are confusing because it seems like they all use different standards. What does "super" or "supreme" even mean? Adult diapers and adult pull-ups are something that if you need them, you need them to work. No one wants leaks or accidents because they accidentally chose "super" or "extra" and you should have picked the one that said "super extra great". Thankfully, there is a company that organizes their incontinence products in a way that makes sense. Tranquility [More]
