What Are Adult Diapers for Seniors?

Seniors’ diapers, also called adult briefs, are incontinence products that are designed with maximum absorbency to protect against urinary incontinence and fecal incontinence. They’re best suited for seniors with heavy to severe leakage.

Seniors' Diaper Features

  • Size Choice

    Size Choice

    Sizing is crucial when choosing an adult diaper for your elderly loved one. The wrong size diaper can cause diaper rash, leakage, or bulkiness.

    Our Adult Diaper Sizes:

    • Small
    • Medium
    • Large
    • XL
    • 2XL
    • 3XL

    Each size of our adult diapers come with the absorbency level you choose; the absorbency level does not decrease when you drop a size, nor does it increase when you go up a size.

    To find your adult diaper size, use our sizing chart.

    How to Know If Your Adult Diaper Fits

    • The part of the diaper that keeps you dry, called the absorbent core, will rest comfortably on your body.
    • The diaper as a whole should fit comfortably around your legs and waist and not feel too tight on those areas.
    • The tabs will be facing forward on your hips instead of in the middle of your stomach. 
  • Adjustable Fit

    Adjustable Fit

    Adult diapers for seniors' adjustable fit is designed to provide ultimate comfort and confidence. The tab-style closures allow for an adjustable waistband size that will fit their body type.

  • Breathable Material

    Breathable Material

    Adult diaper for seniors' materials are highly absorbent. They also control leaks and odors while allowing your loved one's skin to breathe. This can be especially helpful for seniors with sensitive skin, as the materials help to prevent irritation like diaper rash.

  • Odor Control

    Each senior brief comes with odor control that absorbs odors before they start, giving your loved one lasting confidence- no matter what they're doing.
