Regain Your Freedom And Get Your Life Back! #Underwareness @Depend #Ad


    It is the embarrassing little secret that most women don’t want to talk about because nobody wants to admit that they suffer from it.  The reality is that bladder leakage is a condition that affects millions of people, especially mothers who often experience this after childbirth.  I personally have dealt with this problem since having children and it’s not something that other mothers warned me about when I was pregnant.

    Truthfully, not only is it embarrassing but it can be really uncomfortable too when it happens in public places.  Sometimes all it takes is a cough or a sneeze to cause some leakage and it is really important to always be prepared for it because it can be absorbed through your clothes and you do have to worry about odors and hygiene as a result of it.  Thankfully, Depend is available for people of all ages which is great considering that more people with bladder leakage are in their 20’s than their 80’s!


    I have to be honest, when I first realized that bladder leakage was going to be a problem after giving birth, I was afraid that I would be unable to find discreet products to address the issue.  Depend Silhouette Active Fit briefs have a lower rise+ for an underwear-like look, fit and feel.  They are helping people to regain their freedom through the availability of black and beige colored briefs that are so comfortable and natural that you don’t even feel like you are wearing something for bladder leakage.

    These discreet briefs are very important to young moms like me who don’t want to be embarrassed in front of others due to the discomfort of leakage.  They boast a thin design for complete bladder leakage protection and they have a lower rise for an underwear-like look and feel.  Most importantly, they are absorbent enough to capture every little leak that threatens to betray your secret to others.


    Depend is entering year two of Underwareness, a social movement and charitable cause to break down the bladder leakage stigma.  The way that they are accomplishing this is by encouraging people to show their support for women with bladder leakage. For every photo and video shared using #Underwareness and featuring Depend products, the Depend brand will donate $1, up to $3 million, through 2016 to fund charities that advance the research and education of bladder leakage.

  1. Fact is, bladder leakage is a real problem and it can actually keep us away from working out. These are great so glad to hear they are available and don’t show!

  2. I think it is awesome how discreet they are making these products now a days. It is important to maintain peoples’ dignity especially when they wanting to have an active lifestyle.

  3. I hope I never have to wear these but if I do I’m glad they’re available.

  4. It is not only embarrassing for Mom’s to discuss–but those of us who are getting older also experience this problem whether we had children or not. I am going to have to go and buy a pair of these to see if they fit me comfortably. They sure sound like they will.

  5. It’s great that this is all being spoken about now since it’s something that ultimately affects everyone. Kudos to Depend for taking away the stigma.

  6. Jennifer Williams says

    I love that they are coming out with things that allow you to live without being embarrassed. I had no idea that they would be so discrete that you could wear yoga pants and not have the lines though – that is awesome.

  7. Nobody wants to admit their body isn’t in tip top shape, but it’s so common and I’m really glad we’re erasing the stigma attached to it. These normal looking Discreets help.

  8. Wow, these are not your mother’s bladder control undergarments, for sure! I think it’s great that things like this are being created!

  9. I’m been reading so much about bladder leakage these days. It’s great that these products are available for women who need to keep this problem discreet.

  10. I think bladder leakage along with any other type of problem in ‘that area’ is embarrassing because it is simply personal. I do think that if people open up and conversate people will understand especially since it can happen to anyone.

  11. When I get sick I have a bit of a leakage issue, I will sneeze and a bit will come out. I think it’s part of being 30 and not having as strong muscles as I once had. The bladder undies look like they would be comfortable for people who struggle with bladder leakage.

  12. I am so glad that they make these now. I know after I had my kids, I used Depends for a few day. But I was so embarrassed because they were big and bulky. These would have been perfect. Thanks for sharing.

  13. I so need these, now pregnant with baby 6, my bladder is so not the same —- leaks, leaks, leaks!

  14. Depends have been the subject of many jokes. Glad to see they look more like a panty and less like a diaper.

  15. I’m so glad products like this exist! So many people can benefit from this! I know I could have during my last pregnancy!

  16. These look a lot more like underwear. I’m sure they look and feel better than other bladder undies.

  17. Women should be comfortable and not have to worry about bladder leakage. I think this is a great product.

  18. I’ll bet most people will have to wear these – men and women – when they get really old – at least the styles seems to look better than a big padded look!

  19. I love that they are making them less bulky now. It’s so great for so many people who need these.

  20. This looks really great, so perfect to wear when you go toe the gym or just lounge around; it seems comfortable!

  21. Robin (Masshole Mommy) says

    They sure have come a long way when it comes to undergarments for bladder leakage! I remember that they used to be big and bulky, but these are very discreet!

  22. I’m glad this campaign is going around. It’s wonderful to help remove stigmas and I think this campaign is really making headway with that where Depends are concerned.

  23. Thankfully, I think talking real mommy issues is becoming easier. I personally don’t have bladder issues, but that’s because it’s a side benefit of having c-sections instead of natural birth. I have a bladder of steel, which I need with my girls. I will have to take a look at these if that changes.

  24. Ann Bacciaglia says

    These looks so much like regular underwear. I love that they come in three colors now.

  25. Paula Schuck says

    Depends look so comfortable and like regular underwear. I like the black ones. It is great there is a product like this available.
