Seasonal fun – and no embarrassing problems

Let’s face it, whatever our age, we all like to have a good time.

So it is good news that this year could be the most uninhibited Christmas and new year yet for millions of older British people who suffer from some form of incontinence.

The NHS estimate that up to 6 million people in the UK may have an incontinence problem, which can be caused by stress, childbirth, the menopause and obesity as well as age.

And, as any sufferer knows, activities such as lifting or running or even laughter can make the problem worse.

Now Confitex, a New Zealand lingerie manufacturer, has launched in the UK an exciting new Hi-Life Collection specially targeted at women and men who might be worried about uncontrollable urges to “go”.  

The idea of the new Collection is so that women can still wear lovely feminine lingerie in soft and sexy fabrics and men can slip on great looking easy to wear pants with total comfort and confidence. The new range features great designs, but every item also incorporates Confitex’s new breakthrough patented 3-layer protection. This quickly transfers moisture away from the body into a high tech absorbency textile mid-layer covered by a fully waterproof, stretchable and breathable outer layer.

There are no plastic or disposable elements in these undergarments; they are simply worn and washed just like ordinary underwear.

“Our new Hi-Life Collection has been designed with freedom in mind,” said Confitex’s co-founder Dr Mark Davey. “The breakthrough technology in the fabrics is exciting and the underwear looks beautiful.  Confitex looks like normal underwear, feels like normal underwear, and we know it will give people of all ages freedom and the confidence to get out, feel and look great and live life without any awkward moments.”

There is also that added aspect of buying incontinence wear; and the embarrassment that can sometime happen as you go through a check out with a young girl who carefully reads the packet before scanning. Confitex can save that as it comes in excellent discreet packaging that makes it look like normal underwear.

Confitex is coming into the shops now. At the moment it is available through the online shops at Spring Chicken (www.springchicken.co.uk  ) and at the Complete Care Shop (www.completecareshop.co.uk/confitex ) but will soon be in more retail shops across the country.
