Adult Diapers & Incontinence Products

With 10,000 persons turning 65 years old every day, incontinence is a growing issue facing a booming aging population. Incontinence can start with the occasional leak and progress to a chronic condition that is embarrassing and intrudes on self-respect and the ability to freely go about one’s life. We have hundreds of products available including the best adult diapers to specifically address your needs, and provide the right solution for you.

Find the Right Incontinence Supplies

There are many different types of incontinence such as overactive bladder, stress incontinence, and prostrate related incontinence and the solutions and causes can very widely from one version to another. The best adult diaper for your unique needs may depend on different factors. To learn more about incontinence and methods to better manage incontinence, visit the understanding incontinence and incontinence issues section of our site.

Types of Fit

Adult Diapers typically come in two different full-coverage styles. Determining which style of fit depends on caregiver and user preference, user mobility / dexterity, and product coverage.


  • Look and feel of regular underwear (generally more acceptable for reluctant users or those new to incontinence)
  • More comfortable for active users
  • More discreet under clothing
  • May have tear-away sides for easy removal
  • May have leg cuffs to contain leaks

  • Most common style used in institutional settings (nursing homes, assisted living, hospitals)
  • Adjustable tabs may offer a more customized fit around narrow legs or larger bellies
  • Easier clean up for bowel incontinence

FAQ Incontinence

  • What is the "best" solution available?

    Because they require less changes and typically perform much better than anything found at retail, a proper fitting overnight diaper or ultimate absorbency diaper is far and away the most popular– and pull-ups outsell briefs (tab top diapers) at a ratio of about 2:1.

  • Should I double-up diapers to prevent leaks?

    NO! Never ever double up diapers – it does not work and wastes a lot of product and money. Instead find a super absorbent product that works better, if leaks are still a problem, try inserting a booster pad inside of the diaper.

  • I just have occasional incontinence (Stress incontinence or sneeze incontinence) – what is recommended?

    Incontinence pads (for females) and Male guards (for males) for grown-up diapers are a logical starting point for the occasional bout of incontinence. They can be placed inside of form-fitting underwear (panties or jockey style underwear for men) and can be removed and replaced as needed – without removing clothes. And because they are smaller and use less material, pads and guards tend to be very economical compared to incontinence garments.

  • What size incontinence diaper should I use?

    Every brand of diaper has its own sizing – and the manufacturers usually provide waist and hip measurements to guide the user in selecting the best size and fit. All incontinence garments should be form fitting and close to the body as gaps in the leg holes or gaps at the waist can cause leaks. And just as in garments, no two product fit alike so we encourage sampling to ensure a great fit. In fact, we estimate most diapers leaks due to poor fit more than due to a lack of absorbency. Diapers should fit snugly but still feel comfortable.

  • The terms ADULT DIAPER is less than dignified, why is this term still in use?

    We get a call about once every 90 days where someone is offended by the term, and we understand the issue. The garment make of these products are very similar to that of a baby diaper – the construction technologies and materials are much more sophisticated in the adult version and adult users have a voice where babies really do not. The familiarity of baby diapers – their look, construction, and application have permeated the manufacture of adult diapers for years – and so the term has stuck. In reality, the terms adult diapers, elderly diapers, incontinence briefs, and incontinence underwear are all interchangeable.

  • What type of adult diaper is easiest for caregivers?

    For home caregivers, we advocate super absorbent diapers that require less changes per day (better preserving caregiver health). These super absorbent diapers come in a variety of makes, and often can eliminate nighttime leaks. Read our Parentgiving Picks for best superabsorbent diapers.

  • How many diapers will I need per day?

    If using super absorbent diapers, we advocate no less than 4 changes per day in the following cycle (wake-up, lunchtime, dinnertime, before bed). If using less absorbent products, than 6 to 8 changes per day may be required. Institutional settings advocate “check and change” every 3 hours, inclusive of waking up the user in the middle of the night – we strongly believe that better products can eliminate any need to wake a loved one suffering from incontinence.

  • Help! I am excessively washing bed linens due to leaks – what can I do?

    Find a super absorbent product that FITS well with no gaps at the leg holes or waist. Booster Pads can be inserted INSIDE an adult diaper to provide an additional 6 to 12 ounces of void capacity. Booster Pads can also be wrapped around a male user’s penis to deflect urine flow back into the diaper environment.

  • Is there a more discreet solution for incontinence when I am out and about?

    Incontinence pads for women and male guards are probably the most discreet solution – but are generally only used for mild or occasional incontinence. When using pull-up incontinence underwear, avoid plastic backed garments as they can make noise as you move. Almost all gender specific underwear are built for discretion (no plastic, and slimmer profiles)

  • Does MEDICARE cover the cost of incontinence diapers?

    Unfortunately, Medicare does not cover the cost of incontinence products nor does Medicare reimburse for the expense of incontinence products and diapers for senior citizens. This link to Medicare.gov clearly states that incontinence products are not covered by Medicare. We do have highly rated and more affordable products that can cut down on the monthly outlay for incontinence products – we recommend these products when a loved one is in assisted living or if professional homecare is available to change on a more frequent basis. Our Parentgiving Picks for Every Day Value Diapers is a great shortcut.

  • Do you sell reusable diapers?

    We do sell reusable diapers and reusable underpads. We really do not advocate reusable diapers as they really don’t work that well (except for very light incontinence or occasional incontinence). For those who want to lessen their environmental impact, our reusable diapers can be found here. Conversely, we strongly advocate reusable underpads as a barrier of last resort to protect mattresses, furniture, and auto seating. Combining a reusable underpad with a super absorbent diaper or brief is one of our optimal recommendations. Our reusable underpads can be found here.

  • Do you have retail stores?

The Causes of Adult Incontinence

Incontinence is a growing issue in America's aging population. It can start with a little leak from something like pregnancy, surgery, or injury but progress into a more chronic medical condition as you grow older, or you could have gastrointestinal issues. No matter what age you are, incontinence is embarrassing and stressful. ParentGiving.com features the best adult diaper selection and a variety of choices in other incontinence supplies. Let us help you choose the best adult incontinence products to suit your individual needs, stress-free.

What Are Adult Diapers?

Though many older adults do rely on incontinence briefs, adults of all ages need absorbing undergarments for a medical condition or surgery that may cause temporary or permanent incontinence. They are made to hold much more moisture than diapers for infants or babies. Adult diapers can be manufactured with tabs or pull-up style. Pull-up adult diapers fit more like underwear, but diapers with tabs are easier for caregivers and for those with a disability who must lay down or have difficulty standing.

How Can I Choose the Right Adult Diaper?

When you're trying to find the right incontinence brief for adults, it's very important to find the right size to stay healthy. Think about how it may fit around places like bellies, bottoms, and legs. If you choose an adult diaper that is too small, it will have too much compression, and you might risk cutting off blood supply to the leg or overflowing. It's also important to consider the comfort and absorbency of the diaper to make sure it fits your needs and lifestyle. Look at these tips to find the best diaper for an adult.

  • Size: Make sure you take some measurements before making any purchases. Measure around your hips and your waist, and then use the largest of these measurements when making your choice. Try to take measurements each time you buy diapers as they may change. Also, carefully check the packaging since adult diapers don't have standardized sizes. The sizes vary between manufacturers.
  • Absorbency: It's crucial to choose adult undergarments that are sufficiently absorbent. The best thing to do is pick the adult diaper that has the highest absorbency while still fitting comfortably. Also, choosing a sex specific diaper will help because the padding in these diapers is placed differently according to anatomy. You may want to choose a different product for overnight than for during the day as well since more absorbency is often necessary overnight. Also, it's good to consider whether the diaper is being used for fecal incontinence as well as urinary incontinence. Additionally, there are some people who have very light needs and may be able to use pads alone.
  • Comfort: Comfort is important to anyone wearing adult diapers. No one wants their adult diaper to be too tight or leak. So, look for undergarments that are stretchy, especially if you've had recent surgery. Also, make sure the diapers are fitted to avoid leaks. Also, check to see if they are comfortable when walking and lying down. They should also never cause a rash or infection.

Types of Adult Incontinence Products

There are a number of different kinds of adult incontinence products, and all of them are great for different situations. Let's take a look at a few examples as well as what they are good for so you know when you might want to consider using them.


Adult diapers have refastenable tabs that allow the diaper to be opened and checked then fastened again. They can be changed while lying down and without removing most clothing. Some diapers even have wetness indicator strips so that caretakers can see when a person needs to be changed without unfastening the diaper. This type of diaper is best for people who have limited mobility or need help with changes from a caretaker. However, it can also be useful for overnight use.


Pull-ups are good for people that don't have limited mobility. This type of undergarment is more like typical underwear and generally more comfortable as well. Pull-ups also come in a variety of colors, patterns, and styles, often made to appear like regular underwear. This can make people more comfortable with wearing them.

Bariatric Briefs

Bariatric briefs are made to fit the needs of large adults. These briefs come in waist sizes that fit up to 106 inches. They are labeled in sizes from XL on up, but it's really best to measure before choosing a size. Measuring carefully will ensure the briefs fit comfortably around the waist, legs, and hips. They do have stretchy sides and come fitted around the legs to avoid leaks and improve their comfort.


Pads can be a good option for those with mild incontinence problems. Although, they can also be used in addition to diapers or briefs. They come in different levels of thickness and absorbency to give consumers more choices. These pads also come in different shapes. Some are contoured to fit the shape of the body; whereas, others are rectangular. You can also get pads that are longer than average. Some pads are even scented to reduce odors. Also, like with diapers and pull-ups, you can purchase sex-specific pads.

Get Moisture-Wicking Products

No matter which style of incontinence product you choose, dryness is essential and doesn't have to come at a premium price! When skin is exposed to urine and fecal matter, it can cause diaper rash and infection. That's why it's extremely important to choose adult incontinence products that are moisture-wicking, breathable, and a lining that tracks moisture away from the body.

It's Trial and Error When It Comes to Meeting Your Personal Goals

Thinking about how you want an adult diaper to perform is critical. Are you more concerned with urine leaks? Maybe styles, the way they look under clothes and pants, or how easy they are to remove is more important. It may be very important that your incontinence garment looks more like panties or underwear. Think about things like allergies and sensitivities to make sure you don't irritate the skin and cause diaper rash when moving or walking. Also, think of the different fabrics and materials. Take note of how you need adult incontinence products to work for your individual needs.

Choosing the right diaper to meet the needs of an adult requires a lot of patience and problem- solving. You may find yourself going through a lot of different brands until you finally find adult incontinence products that perform and fit the way you like. Don't forget about booster pads, under- bed pads, and clean-up products to help give a solution to any impairment you're having. If you feel like the cost of diapers is adding up, check out our website for adult diaper coupons, sales, and diaper samples.

We do offer reusable diapers for those who want to keep waste out of the landfill. However, they are difficult to maintain and don't hold much moisture compared to disposable diapers. We recommend buying reusable inserts and booster pads and using them paired with a disposable diaper for maximum protection. Never double-up on diapers; it's not very effective, it wastes money, and it may cause inflammation.
