FAQ

What Size and Absorbency Is Right For Me?

For Men For Women
How does the built-in panty liner work?

The liner wicks and absorbs moisture away from the body and locks it in. The center layer is made up of absorbent, Antimicrobial treated fiber fill. To prevent leakage, the bottom of the pad is lined with waterproof polyurethane laminate.

How does the Wearever® pad absorb odor?

Liner fibers are treated with an antimicrobial solution and reduce odor causing bacteria. The odor absorption lasts for the life of the garment.

How much liquid does the liner absorb?

Our light absorbency wicks away up to ¼ cup a day; regular absorbency, ½ cup; super absorbency, 1 cup; maximum absorbency, 2 cups.

How much coverage does the pad provide?

The coverage differs depending on the style of the garment. The size of the built-in pad incrementally increases with the amount of liquid the pad can wick away. The regular absorbency pads are roughly the size of a disposable pad. The super pads are larger, going not quite halfway up the front and back panels. The maximums are the largest, going halfway up the front and back panels. For the men’s garments: The pad extends up past the fly on the front side of all styles to ensure proper coverage. The back coverage of the classic is minimal. The back coverage of the super and maximum extends about halfway up the back side of the garment.

Does the men’s underwear have functioning flies?

Yes, all of our men’s styles have a functioning fly. Since the pad extends higher than the fly, it is necessary to push the pad aside when using the fly.

How do you wash the underwear?

Machine wash warm. Tumble dry low. Do not use chlorine bleach, fabric softener or dryer sheets, as these additives will greatly reduce the effectiveness of the pad’s absorbency.

How long will Wearever® underwear last?

Wearever® underwear will last just as long as any non-absorbent panty! Depending on how you wash them, they could last up to 250 washes!

Is the body of the underwear leak proof?

No, only the pad itself is. Once the pad is full, any additional liquid will leak over it and through the fabric in front of or behind the pad. Because of this, we recommend you change the underwear when the pad is full.

Can I use Wearever® for bowel incontinence?

Unfortunately, the Wearever® products are intended only for bladder incontinence.

Can I use Wearever® at night?

While we do have many customers that use our products at night, it really depends on your level of incontinence and how you sleep. Since none of our underwear is padded all the way up the back, someone who sleeps on their side could experience a leak over the edges of the pad. For added protection, we also offer Wearever® Pads to keep all your furnishings dry.
