Belted undergarments don't get as much attention as adult diapers and pads, but for many individuals with incontinence, they're the solution they've been searching for. Belted undergarments are essentially heavy absorbency incontinent pads with belts, which makes them the perfect bridge between traditional adult diapers and pads. They offer the flexibility of easily removing and replacing pads as needed, while still offering the support of the belt. Yet, they don't have the drawbacks of a diaper, which can be trickier to change and bulkier under clothing.
The benefits of belted undergarments also extend to caregivers who are assisting someone with incontinence issues. The belted style makes it easy to change out pads while standing and without having to remove pants or shoes. These products are also generally less expensive than traditional incontinence garments like adult diapers and briefs.

Choosing the BestThe greatest advantage of a disposable belted undergarment is its flexibility of applying and removing the super absorbent pad: active users have the ability to change out the absorbent pad while standing and without removing pants or shoes while family caregivers and professional caregivers also like the easy on and easy off of this style in caring for their patients. The construction of a belted undergarment varies by manufacturer but it typically consists of a soft elastic band that sits on the users hips with a disposable absorbent pad that attaches in both the front and back.
When the wearer requires a change of pad they unattach the used pad and attach a new pad in its place. The absorption capacity of the pads used in these systems is more than an incontinence pad alone and the construction ensures a secure fit versus an incontinence pad used inside an adults panties (female) or underwear. Some active incontinence users report movement of the belt or band on their hips during the daytime. For those seeking incontinence supplies that are less bulky that require less storage space than traditional adult diapers and that ultimately have a smaller footprint in materials used and landfill impact - disposable belted undergarments meet that criteria. We have received some feedback from users that adult belted undergarments are not always ideal for side-sleepers or for those seeking very high absorbency (although a booster pad can theoretically be used to increase absorption capacity.
Our most popular and highest rated belted undergarments are by Tena Protection Plus and Tranquility. Some of these (Tena Flex) are unisex but have European sizing (not to be confused with Female garment sizes!) We have found that belted undergarment tend to work best for: those who require more absorption capacity than an incontinence pad can deliver who are seeking less bulk under their clothes who can achieve a good fit and who seek flexibility in application and removal of pads whether standing (without removing pants or shoes) or prone (incontinent patients tended to by caregivers). Adult belted undergarments occupy a small niche in the spectrum of incontinence supplies but users who find a good fit tend to love them.
