Environmentally-friendly, Wash and Wear Absorbent Underwear
Absorbent, washable underwear - your alternative to disposables
Wearever Canada's washable absorbent underwear are cost-effective and environmentally sustainable alternatives to disposable products, and do not contain harsh chemicals.
Offering men's and and women's styles, these washable, absorbent underwear range from slight to moderate absorbency - all the way up to 20 oz. - these products offering an appealing option to disposable underwear.
My mother absolutely refuses to wear disposable underwear, even though she has growing incontinence! She doesn't want to feel "old" she says, but we have a real problem to deal with.
I am embarrassed to take her anywhere and even at home, I am running around putting towels on the chairs. She's angry and so am I. What are we going to do?
A few years ago, there would not have been much of an answer for our customer's problem, but the world of incontinence products has advanced rapidly with research and technology.
It also helps that so many more people are using them and demanding improvements.
For example, there is widespread concern about the use of toxic substances in fabrics used next to the skin because of the negative and sometimes long-term effects on health.
How do I choose?
My Liberty always counsels first about the size of the need! The formula is straight forward: a full adult bladder void is about 1 cup of fluid or 8 oz. We offer washable underwear that holds from 3 to 20 oz. over the course of a day.
Next, understand that manufacturers use different language to describe the capacity of their products. What's "moderate protection" to some is "heavy protection" to others.
To help you sort it out, we’ve developed a standardized Total Capacity Rating system that we use across all brands and incontinence products we sell. At a glance, our rating shows a product’s ability to absorb and hold bladder and bowel leakage.
Think about volume over time
Are you looking for protection from drips and dribbles over several hours or frequent leaks within a few hours?
Women's sizes are based on their hip measurements. By contrast, Men's sizes are based on their waist measurements.
Don't be disappointed with products you cannot return. Be sure. Measure first.

Slight capacity - absorbs 3 oz. to 5 oz.
For women,there are several choices in both lines that are very discreet. No one would ever know that you are wearing them solo (without a disposable pad) and still absorbing little bladder leaks during exercise class, a run, a bike ride or throughout the day.
