If all is now maximum then.....

Mar 21 2011 05:50 PM

Greetings from the Earl H. Camp,
Not to long ago I heard that all the protective underwear were going to be a form of maximum which to me doesn't seem to make sense.
Not knowing where or if this is a fact I would like to pose the following question to all....
If the Protective Underwear both Mens and Womens, were to have one new feature added to them for more confidence and/or reliability what would that be?

My answer and request would be for the inner leg gathers that the 6 tape briefs have to direct those flooding moments from those morning coffees and others.
Thank You,
Earl H.

That is the top pick for myself, leg gathers on the inside, I use the underwear for men at work as back up if I can't get to the bathroom, but try to avoid that at all costs, not a place I want a flood and leak to appear. The other would be more absorbancy, not a lot, but more then what the underwear now have in them, Puffy

I think it would benefit the Depend Company to make a Diaper for adult bedwetters/extended wear diaper like abena or 24/7, and other premium diaper manufactures. I am a side sleeper and I can never have a totaly dry bed there is usually a medium size leak. I am a Loyal Kimberly Clark Customer so please acknowledge that your product has major leakage problems and find a solution

Hello alvin3255, cloth diapers are by far the best for side sleeping and bed wetters, and you can add layers inside of a pullon type to cover hips, and thus no leaks. They are not for everyone by far, but superior for side sleepers, Puffy

Hello Puffy,

Thanks for the reply. I agree that cloth diapers are best but i am always traveling and i need a disposible product as i do not have much access to laundry. I have a quick questions instead of paying $14.00 for 16 i$.0875 per brief i would rather pay $1.50 for a product that protects me wear i need the protection please let me know if you agree.

I agree, if you are travelling and need a disposable for longer wear time, I would not hesitate to buy something in the "higher end" side of adult diapers. Abena or ATN, Molicare even, although more money, can be used longer, thus not using as many then the lower end ones. I personally don't buy them, I rarely am out more then 3-4 hours, and If I am I use an external cath and legbag, saves all the fuss of leaks and changing, and hate being wet for any longer then I have to, much better for skin health. It takes time to find a system that works for you personally. There are so many options out there, it can almost be overwhelming to try and find what works best for you. Puffy

OK, here is my idea for a "hybrid" diaper, what I would like to see. How about a diaper that is a pull-on stretch type like Depend for men(what I mostly use), combined with the thickness, the leak guards and the plastic backing of the fitted maximum.

Moderators, tell that to your engineering dept.

Think about the benefits and convenience. I personally love the fitted maximum, except for the non-pullup part. The fitted max feels the most comfortable to me for wearing, the padding is thicker and softer, and I like the plastic backing(though people vary on their opinions on that) yet I don't find it any bulkier under regular fit jeans. I have more confidence going through the day as a result.

Tell me if somebody already makes this. I would be willing to try it.

Sorry if I deviated from topic a little.

You're dead on. A pull up maximum underwear for men that covers all the areas of protection and best for night time. Depends still makes the best underwear in my opinion. I've tried many brands, and even the thicker brands still had issue. Maybe make an "overnight" pull up for men???

We indeed have a "BINGO",
The Mens Protective Underwear are a great product but improvements are indeed always a good thing. I've known for a long time that basically this wonderful product is a absorbant pad glued to a garmentlike material. Do take a closer look at your next change as I have many times needed to smooth out a loose corner or two which has caught a stray hair which of course isn't fun.
The hybrid idea is exactly what we could wish for. A pull on style that has the leg gathers inside and out and also padding in the "wings" 360 degrees around unlike the current brief. This extra padding would be paramount to soak up any side leaks especially when sleeping. Even the other name brands haven't woke up to this idea for who knows why? My guess says it might be a cost issue but maybe this concept isn't cost effective for them to make. A few dollars more per package would be well worth a better addition of the current product. I'm hoping its just a idea that hasn't surfaced and not a idea being put off to sell more product. Some ideas do come from the consumers and it is my hope that the designers might read my post for the future of all of us. [I'm not a Einstein but maybe this concept might be looked into] No fancy name would be needed just simply be called a pull on brief.
All The Best,

I am new to this field starting 2/15/11. Have been using the new Mens Underware. Picked up an econimy package at Walmart the other day, net cost per pad about 66. each. Have constant leakage when standing so are is wet 100% of the time. This requires washing at least 3 times daily fol;lowed by lubrication. So far Eucerin cream has been working. Don't know if I have the desire to keep going with this leakage problem forever.

Hello Wil2son,
My best advice for you is to upgrade to the Depend Maximum as what your describing is a full emptying of your bladder here. The Depend Underwear aren't able to handle this amount of loss and the Maximum's will need a booster pad or my recommendation of a Luvs Size 6 diaper put inside with slice line every 1 inch in the 6's backsheet from top to bottom, to keep you near dry and more comfortable. Also a good plastic pant like Sanipant pullons from a pharmacy such as walgreens online or instore will contain most leaks and spare your clothing.
For better control of your wetting needs is a trial and error period to find out what you take in that causes the most wetting and what as well as when during the day they occur. Once you can pinpoint these you'll be able to be prepared with the amount of protection to get you through.
By way of help I'm for a means of control by learning and doing verses drugs and their side effects. For now hold your head up and step up to a higher absorbancy product and your days will be less stressful and better protected. I'm here to help in any way I can and any question is a good question as there isn't any wrong ones when taking care of yourself.
All The Best,
Earl H.

I believe we are on to something like i mentioned above i dont mind spending extra money for a better quality product just give them the name Men/womens Underwear PM I don't care if they are thicker becaue in my opinion bulkier pajamas are more discreet then wet sheets. I have tried the attends extended wear and they are good but hard to come by I believe that the main advantage that depends has is accesibility and with a better diaper it will be a win win situation i wore goodnites untill i outgrew them and if you read the goodnites posts parents are screaming for a larger size pant so this can be your opportunity to make the gap between larger children and smaller adults with a drier pullon diaper please let me know what you think to me this is a no brainer and a recomendation for depend i would poll your customers on what they want.

I don't see why depends won't make an extended wear version of the briefs. Or at least put boost back in major stores

Hello Again Wil2son,
Sounds like your in good control of your situation. I do recommend that you have at the very least 2 cups of water between breakfast and lunch and the same between lunch and suppertime. If you just get by on just your morning coffee the odds are your body is hollering for water. As my Chiropractor will tell you "The body needs water to run smoothly and efficiantly throughout the day". The bare minimum here is what I've suggested above.
In other news the Depend Maximum are easy to put on with a bit of practice and patience. The standing up position works well for new users and its best to tape the bottom tapes on each side first followed by the middle one and then snugging up the waist with the top two.
Do take in more water for your body's help and I'm here to help if you need.
All The Best,
Earl H.

I agree that someone needs to produce a night use, gender specific pull up. Thicker padding that rises higher front and back and leak shields would be great. These features have been present in Goodnites since they first introduced them.

My sentiments exactly, Robert. Although I'm a woman, I also need pad coverage that extends higher in front. I sleep on my stomach and wetness pools under my belly. I prefer to wear pull-ups for both day and night. A Depend pull-up designed for night use would be wonderful. I have been using Rite-Aid Underwear for Men and Women - Overnight Absorbency (blue box) at night, and Silhouette during the day. The Rite-Aid pull-ups are okay most of the time, but I always use a bed pad.
