Why is everyone talking about pee proof underwear?

Pee Proof Underwear for Women

Pee Proof Underwear? Yes, I am going there. 

*Men, you will want to leave now. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

Ladies, I know this is an embarrassing subject to talk about. But it happens to the best of us and it can affect women of any age. That’s right. I’m talking about urinary incontinence. You know those little leaks we experience when we cough, sneeze, or exercise? Yeah, that. I’ve been seeing lots of buzz about pee proof underwear all over social media and I wanted to see what all the fuss was about.  

So I had the chance to sample a few pairs of absorbent pee proof underwear complimentary for review I would like to share my findings with you.

Do you accidentally pee when you sneeze or cough? You may be one of the millions of women who suffer from incontinence. But is pee proof underwear for you? Click To Tweet

Who really needs pee proof underwear?

Do you accidentally pee when you sneeze, cough, or exercise? You may be one of the millions of women who suffer from Incontinence a.k.a. Overactive Bladder.

But incontinence doesn’t only affect old people. It can affect women (and men) of any age.

Here are the most common forms of incontinence:

Urinary incontinence can affect anyone of any age.

Urinary incontinence can affect anyone of any age.

Stress incontinence (the most common) is involuntary and occurs with stress on the bladder when engaging in physical activity. Seriously, what mom hasn’t sprung a little leak when picking up their kid?

Then you have Urge incontinence which is when you always feel like you have to go to the bathroom. For some of us, this makes taking long road trips super scary.

Have you ever worried about when you are going to find the next bathroom or rest stop? I don’t know about you, but I have had to pull over and use a bush from time to time.

And finally we have Overflow incontinence.

This happens when our bladders don’t empty properly, and small amounts dribble escape involuntarily. This is more common in men than women, but it can happen to anyone.

But thanks to science,  there are many different types of products available for people with incontinence, ranging from pads, to adult diapers, and now even underwear!

So what’s all the fuss about pee proof underwear? Let’s find out!

Here are the ones I tried…


Wearever Underwear for Women

Wearever Cotton Classic Underwear for Women

Wearever Cotton Classic Underwear for Women – on the this teeny tiny model

This was my first time trying out pee proof underwear so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I had my choice of Women’s Cotton Comfort Incontinence Panties in beige or white, and I chose the white color. I wear a size 6 in pants, so I went with the medium size.

Comfort: The material is 50% cotton/50% polyester and they feel like a Jersey T-shirt. It features a sewn-in, absorbent “Unique-Dri” pad. And boy is this pad thick!

It feels kind of like those cloth diapers that babies wore before disposable diapers were a thing. My grandma always kept them around to use as dust cloths after the kids were grown.

But I had an issue with the elastic. They cut into my butt and my ribs – yes, I said ribs (keep reading).

I found myself constantly adjusting them throughout the day. So I can’t say they were all that comfortable.

Style: These underwear are HUGE! I don’t understand why they have to be so big.

You guys, the waistband almost comes up to my bra. And because they are so big, they are ugly and they make me feel ugly.

I’m almost too embarrassed to show you the photos. But I like to keep it real, so here goes…

Here's how they look on me and my "real woman" thighs. Where's my belly button?

My second issue is with the pad itself. It is very wide and it leaves a gap inside between my hoo-ha and the panties.

I prefer my underwear to sit right up against my lady parts. I’m not talking camel-toe action, but just enough to know that it’s there.

And while I want to know that it’s there, I don’t want to be constantly aware of it – like when I’m walking.

Because the pad is so wide, I could feel it move when I walked. They weren’t noticeable under tight jeans since the jeans kept them in place, but that waistband though.

Wearever Underwear are so big!

Seriously?! Is this REALLY necessary? I don’t understand what a high waistband has to do with catching drips.

Effectiveness: They worked well against leakage. I had no issues with wetness with these underwear but because of the light color, they could be subject to staining.

I think they would work just as well if the waistband weren’t so dang high.

In fact I found myself rolling them down just to make them a little more comfortable and to make sure they don’t show under my pants.

Maintenance: They can withstand 200-250 washes in the washing machine. No special instructions required.

Final Thoughts: Wearever Underwear comes in several other different styles, so I’m sure there is something to fit everyone.

While this particular style wasn’t for me, I would consider wearing them on days when I think I’m about to start my period – just in case. I feel pretty confident about that.

If you are a women who likes full coverage underwear with light to moderate leak protection, you may like these a lot!

You can find Wearever Women’s Cotton Comfort Incontinence Panties on Amazon from $14-$17 (depending on size) and learn more about the other incontinence products they have available at WeareverIncontinence.com.


Conni Women’s Classic Briefs

Conni Women’s Classic Incontinence Underwear

This is another style of full coverage incontinence underwear for light to moderate bladder loss. The waterproof barrier extends from the front waistband to the back waistband for maximum coverage.

It can hold up to 12fl oz up to 4 hours so it’s not only good for stress incontinence, it is also great back up for light menstrual flow days.

They are available in pink, black, or beige. I got the black style in a size US size 8 (one size up from my usual pant size).

Comfort: They are pretty comfortable. While I’m not really a fan of high waistbands, these landed below my belly button.

And while they are not shape wear, I felt like the padding inside helped to keep my tummy slimmer.

The elastic was a little tight against my tummy, but it could have also been that slice of pizza I had for dinner.

They are made of 95% cotton and 5% elastane and are soft and stretchy. They hug the body and stretch to fit.

The barrier inside is breathable but doesn’t have any PVC.

It feels kind of like microfiber, so it is very soft and you don’t even notice that there is a fixed pad in there.

Conni’ Women’s Classic Underwear look a little retro but with a modern twist.

Style: I think they are cute! They almost look like vintage underwear from the 40s.

Effectiveness: They work great! I did not notice any leaks or wetness at all. Not even when I took them off. They stayed dry all day.

Maintenence: Machine washable and tumble dryer safe

Final Thoughts: I thought these were really cute and comfortable.

I would not only recommend them for daily wear, but I would also feel confident wearing them in the middle of my cycle (during that fun ovulation week) as well as during my period for added back up.

 Conni Women’s Active Briefs

The Conni Active Briefs are designed for light bladder loss. They can hold up to 4fl oz over 4 hours. They are available in pink, black, and beige. I got these in the black US size 8.

Comfort: They are made of 95% Cotton and 5% Elastane and are super comfy! They remind me of yoga pants only a little thinner. What mom doesn’t love her yoga pants?

The pad is only on the bottom and feels like a soft, light terry-cloth towel on the inside and is completely unnoticeable on the outside.

The elastic at the top doesn’t bother me at all – probably because of where the top of the waistband hits.

But the elastic around the legs may be noticeable in tight pants, so I recommend wearing them under a skirt or heavy jeans.

Conni Women's Active are so cute and comfy! And I can see my belly button. Yay!

Style: I think these are really cute. They almost fit like hot pants or boy shorts at the hips, but not quite as long.

I even feel a little sexy in them, and that’s saying a lot when talking about pee proof underwear!

Effectiveness: I feel super confident when wearing these. They stayed dry the entire day until I took them off at night.

Maintenence: Machine washable and tumble dryer safe

Final Thoughts: These are my favorite out of the bunch. In fact, they are my favorite pair of underwear in my entire drawer! I think they are cute, comfortable, and effective.

I recommend them for daily wear and would be perfect to use for exercise. I ♥ them!

You can find Conni Women’s Active Underwear on Amazon for around $18 and also at ConniUSA.com
