Environmentally-friendly, Wash and Wear Absorbent Underwear - Plenty of choices, plenty of sizes
Introducing new absorbent underwear options
My Liberty now has two distinct types of washable absorbent underwear for you to choose from. Both Conni washables and Wearever Canada are cost-effective and environmentally sustainable alternatives to disposable products.
These products do not contain harsh chemicals, and Conni products are certified to prove they do not use these chemicals in their dyeing and finishing factory.
That's amazing to imagine when you hold them in your hand and examine them closely. The absorbent aspects are difficult to detect, even when you wear them.
A new option to disposable underwear
Our newest line - Wearever Canada - will give you confidence that they can hold whatever you give them. Wearever Canada offers men's and women's underwear that ranges from slight to moderate absorbency - up to 20 oz. - 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. My Liberty sells bed pads, mattress protectors and absorbent underwear that are free of toxic chemicals and fragrances.
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.
If it's lace you want - check out the Wearever Women's Regular Absorbency panties with a full stretch lace panel. It has a built in absorbent pad and a waterproof outer layer. Soft, silky and with a stretchy lace band.
For men, Wearever Canada's built-in antimicrobial and waterproof padding offers you Boxer Briefs with a fully functional fly which absorb up to 5 oz. These are made of soft, comfortably poly/jersey and fit up to a 48" waist.
Light absorbency up to 12 oz.
For women, if lace is still on your mind - see the Conni Chantilly panties with lace inserts at the leg. This soft and comfy underwear can hold up to 12 oz over 4 hours. And, if you are looking for a classic look with hard-working aspects, have a look at the Conni Classics, also capable of holding 12 oz.
These have built-in antimicrobial pads with waterproofing. You will feel immediately confident that both of these soft and comfortable options could replace your disposable underwear today.
For men, both Conni and Wearever bring you confidence of staying dry all day.
The Moderate Wearever Men's Briefs in soft poly/jersey can take up to 10 oz of fluid, putting them close to the same level as the Conni briefs.
All of these choices can replace most daytime disposables for bladder incontinence.
All great new absorbent underwear options!
Wearever Canada - wash and wear up to 200 times, saving you money and the environment.
