One of the biggest challenges facing anyone who is experiencing incontinence is finding the right incontinence product to help them manage this problem. It can be frustrating to find exactly what works to meet your needs. One of the most popular and widely used incontinence products lines comes from Depend. This line of incontinence products has been around for a long time helping incontinence patients find the right solution for their incontinence management needs. There are many different reasons why this is. 
The Depend line of incontinence products offers a wide variety of incontinence supplies that makes it easy for anyone with incontinence to find the right incontinence product or combination of incontinence products for them to use. Best of all, there are Depends for men and Depends for women since the makers of Depends understand that each gender has very different needs when it comes to incontinence supplies. Finally, there is Depends underwear for the person with incontinence who wants to maintain an active lifestyle and needs incontinence protection that can be worn under normal clothing. 
One of the most important considerations to keep in mind when it comes to incontinence products is the fit. If the wearer of the incontinence undergarment or adult diaper does not have the proper fit then they will not receive the ultimate in protection from their incontinence undergarment. If you are going to be choosing Depends for your incontinence undergarment there are certain things to keep in mind. Here is what you need to know about how to select the right size of Depends-
  • Understand that there is a wide range of sizes in the Depends incontinence product line-There is no need to settle for a “one size fits all” incontinence undergarment. This means that small people do not have to feel like they are swimming in their incontinence undergarment while larger individuals can also be comfortable wearing theirs.  Depend offers a wide range of sizes from small to extra-large. This means that the person who will be wearing the Depends can find just the right size for them. It cannot be stressed enough that good fit in any incontinence undergarment is crucial. Not only will this make the wearer more comfortable it will give better protection. If someone is wearing an incontinence undergarment that is too small or too large, gaps and chafing could occur and this can then contribute to leakage and accidents. 
  • Understand that there is a difference between Depends for men and Depends for women-At one time all incontinence undergarments were unisex. Unfortunately, this did not provide the protection that many incontinence sufferers needed. Today, manufacturers of incontinence products realize that each gender has unique needs when it comes to incontinence supplies. Depends addresses these needs by providing Depends for men and Depends for women. Caregivers and wearers of incontinence products should not assume that all incontinence supplies are the same. Taking into the account the gender of the wearer will help to provide both better protection and fit when choosing the right size of Depends. 
  • Understand that the lifestyle choices of the wearer should be considered when choosing a type of Depends-From Depends diapers, to Depends undergarments there is an incontinence product for every type of person who needs one. From incontinence sufferers who have limited mobility or who are bedridden to incontinence sufferers who want to carry on with their normal activities there is a Depends incontinence product for them. Many users of Depends undergarments will want to be able to use their incontinence product while continuing to wear normal clothes while others may need something different in order to help their caregiver.
