Incontinence and still look great

Incontinence is no longer a reason to hold back!

A fashion show featuring incontinence lingerie? How things have moved on from our youth when these so called “embarrassing” problems were never talked about and hidden away behind a secret pile of washing.

Incontinence can happen for many reasons from urinary tract infections and constipation to enlarged prostate in men and simply a weakening of the bladder muscles. Diseases that affect nerves such as Parkinson’s can also affect bladder control.

Whatever the cause, it can be embarrassing – even the odd leak during a hearty laugh can suddenly turn a fun evening into an embarrassing event.

So well done to global brand Confitex, who has launched its premium incontinence underwear range at a high profile fashion show in New Zealand. And what a great collection it is. If you suffer from incontinence, suddenly the whole problem becomes lighter thanks to this exciting range of underwear.

According to the designer and co-founder of Confitex, their underwear has been made for people with a love of life and adventure.

“Out consumers refuse to live in a padded world,” she said. “A badly behaving bladder is no reason for people not to make the most of everyday life.”

The collection is based on textile based technology with a three layered system to provide absorbent, waterproof and pad-less washable underwear for men and women. The fabulous styles range from active day-time wear to softer evening lingerie and even the first 6-string designed for light incontinence. Comfort is key in all the collection.

They will ship to anywhere in the world, more details on www.confitexunderwear.com

Along with the practical implications, there are treatments that can help incontinence, depending on the type of bladder control problem you have. The doctor can suggest what is best for your particular situation, but treatments can include pelvic muscle exercises or Kegel exercises to help strengthen vital muscles involved in controlling your bladder.
