Questions & Answers
HOW IT WORKS
Will I smell?
No, all our Briefs and Diapers are made with our advanced anti-odor technology to keep you odor-protected and unnoticeable.
Are they reusable?
No, our products are not reusable. We recommend whenever possible to change them after about a full bladder void. But our Maximum underwear will absorb about another full bladder void if needed, and our Ultimate underwear will absorb about 2 more full bladders, that´s 3 in total, which makes them suitable for overnight use. Once they have reached their maximum absorbency capacity they must be discarded.
Are they safe to wear all day?
We have designed and manufactured all of our underwear with the highest quality materials and they are safe to wear all day as long as they have not reached their maximum absorbency capacity. We recommend whenever possible to change them after about a full bladder void. But our Maximum underwear will absorb about another full bladder void if needed, and our Ultimate underwear will absorb about 2 more full bladders, that´s 3 in total, which makes them suitable for overnight use.
Can I go to the bathroom while using them?
Absolutely! We designed Made for Living for you to wear as you would wear regular underwear. You can pull them down when you go to the bathroom and back up when you are done, with the satisfaction that they will protect you if you need them in between trips to the bathroom.
Are they comfortable?
Yes! We have over 20 years of experience manufacturing adult disposable absorbent underwear, and we have included everything we have learned into the design of Made for Living. We have weaved over a hundred micro elastics through the fabric to conform to your body, and the softest top layer available to improve the feel in your skin. We also offer two levels of absorbency and four sizes to make sure you find the pair that is comfortable for you. Check out our reviews section for other Users’ testimonials!
How long does it last?
We recommend whenever possible to change your disposable underwear after about a full bladder void. But our Maximum underwear will absorb about another full bladder void if needed, and our Ultimate underwear will absorb the amount in about 2 more full bladders, that´s 3 in total, which makes them suitable for overnight use.
Even if dry, or under full capacity, we would recommend changing your absorbent underwear every eight hours.
FIND YOUR PAIR
How do I know which size is right for me?
Take a look at our Size Chart located in the product's listing for specific size measurements and information
What sizes are available?
We offer (4) different sizes for each one of our Briefs models. SM, L, XL and XXL.
What is the difference between Maximum and Ultimate?
The difference between both products is the level of absorption.
Maximum can hold up to 4 cups of liquid, which can on average be just about two bladders full.
Ultimate can hold up to 6 cups of liquid, which translates to two or even three bladders full. Enough to last all night long.
Will I need to use different sizes based on the amount I leak?
You won’t need to change sizes based on your leakage. On the contrary, wearing a product that is too large for your body could decrease the effectiveness of the underwear. If you feel you need more absorbency, because of high levels of liquid discharge or the need for extended use, we highly recommend you choose our Ultimate absorbency model.
Can I get a sample?
We currently offer no free samples, but we do offer a satisfaction guarantee: if you place your order and for any reason, you are not happy with the product, we will replace it, offer an alternative, or a refund. We hope you give us a try!
DO'S AND DON'TS.
Can they be used for any type of leaks? Can they be used for bowel/fecal incontinence?
Our underwear (particularly the Ultimate Absorbency) has enough capacity and structure to hold well with both urinary as well as bowel incontinence, their fabric and elastics are strong enough to hold until one can have an opportunity to change. All our disposable underwear are of the pull-up style. The underwear are also designed so they can be torn on the sides as an alternative to going down through the legs for easy changing. However, some people, particularly those with limited mobility, feel the open style taped diaper is easier to remove with fecal incontinence. Other people in fact prefer our pull-up style because there is less possibility of leakage. It really comes down to preference.
How should I dispose of them?
Simply discard product on regular trash. If inside a home or enclosed space, change the bag once a day to avoid odors sitting in the room.
Can I exercise while wearing them?
Absolutely! Our products are Made For Living! We expect nothing less than our users living and enjoying life as they would regularly without worrying about incontinence. We have designed and manufactured all our products with a moisture-wicking layer that will keep sweat as well as any unintended leaks away from your skin.
Are they waterproof? Can I swim in them? Can I wear them in the pool/beach/lake/shower?
Our underwear is not suitable for underwater use. They are designed to definitely keep liquids in and stop leaks! but they are not waterproof from the outside in, so they will start soaking up the water around them and soon become too heavy and ineffective.
Can I use it for my period?
If using while in your menstrual cycle, just change more frequently than you would on non-menstrual days.
