1. How does the built-in panty liner work?
The liner wicks and absorbs moisture away from the body and locks it in. For your comfort, the pad has a cotton top layer. To prevent leakage, the bottom of the pad is lined with waterproof polyurethane.

4. How much liquid does the liner absorb?
Each S100 liner holds up to 3 ounces of liquid. Each regular liner (found in the majority of the women’s styles and the Men’s Classic) holds up to 5 ounces of liquid. Each super liner holds up to 10 ounces of liquid. Each maximum liner holds up to 20 ounces of liquid.

5. How much coverage does the pad provide?
The coverage differs depending on the style of the garment. For the women’s garments: The S100 has the smallest pad, which is similar to a panty liner. 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.

6. 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.

7. How do you wash the underwear?
Machine wash warm. Tumble dry Medium. Do not use chlorine bleach or fabric softener, as it will breakdown the fibers of the pad and reduce the effectiveness of the anti-microbial and odor inhibiting elements.

8. 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!

9. Are the cotton underwear 100% cotton?
The majority of the cotton underwear is a 50% cotton 50% polyester blend. The blend prevents the underwear from shrinking too much. However, we do have two women’s styles, the L17 and the L126, that are 100% cotton.

10. How does the liner feel?
The liner feels soft and flexible.

11. Is Wearever® underwear bulky and visible through my clothing?
Absolutely not! As it is regular underwear with a pad sewn in, it looks and feels like regular underwear. For those using the super and maximum styles, it will feel similar to wearing a disposable pad, but they are not so bulky as to show through clothing.

12. 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.

13. Can I use Wearever® for bowel incontinence?
Unfortunately, the Wearever® products are intended only for bladder incontinence.

14. 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 back could easily experience a leak over the back of the pad. For these cases we recommend one of our Wearever® Bed Pads to keep your bedding dry.

15. What is your return/exchange policy?
Each pair of underwear and each bed pad are individually packaged. Our socks and bibs are 3 to a package. We will accept any unopened product. We do not refund/exchange any opened product, since we cannot tell if it has been used. Because of this we recommend that new customers only open one pair to try first, so they can return/exchange the others if they don’t work out.
