If you’re one of the 65 million Americans who experience bladder leakage, you know that this common issue can inhibit you from leading the active and fulfilling lifestyle that keeps you moving and feeling good throughout the day.
Geri Brin, founder of FabOverFifty.com, has experienced bladder leakage since having a total hysterectomy at age 44, which led to sudden menopause.
“I can tell you from personal experience the impact bladder leakage can have on your confidence, not to mention how it can hold you back from doing the things you love, including spending precious moments with family and friends or doing simple everyday activities like exercising or walking your dog,” said Geri. “Fortunately, there are options available, like Depend FIT-FLEX Underwear, to help you reclaim your life and reconnect with the people you’ve been missing.”
Depend FIT-FLEX Underwear is designed to move with one’s body and features a new technology to absorb leaks quickly. It’s made of breathable material with all-around leg elastics that provide flexibility.
“I’m thankful for Depend FIT-FLEX Underwear, which allows women (and men) to continue leading active lifestyles, without worrying that leakage will disrupt the things we love to do,” Geri continued. “You also can order these convenient and comfortable briefs on subscription from Amazon, so they’ll be delivered right to your door. I encourage all my FOFriends who experience bladder leakage to slip on a pair of Depend FIT-FLEX Underwear and enjoy a summer on the go!” Here are eight suggestions to help you have an enjoyable – and delightfully dry – season with the family and friends you love:
1. Ditch the busy restaurants and prepare a romantic picnic outside with your hubby. While a candlelit dinner indoors can be nice, finding a quiet spot in your local park is an easy way to switch it up and keep the romance alive.
2. Plan an exercise outing with your best friend. Whether you love yoga, pilates, Zumba, or just jumping on the treadmill, you’ll feel empowered when your muscles are just a little sore.
3. Give your own kids a break, and take the grandkids away for a day at a theme park! What could be more fun for the little ones than cotton candy, boardwalk games and roller coasters with you?
4. Replant your garden with your new favorite flowers and bushes. Gardening is a wonderful way to enjoy the great outdoors, and it offers you a satisfying, ongoing project. Your neighbors will be jealous.
5. Road trip! You don’t need to take a plane or train to visit beautiful and interesting places that you can reach by car in a couple of hours. So pack up your favorite snacks, music and of course, good company… and hit the road. Whether you’re taking a hike or exploring a new museum, there are always adventures close to home.
6. Organize a girls’ night out with your favorite ladies. Sometimes you just need to laugh and let loose on the dance floor. Try a new cocktail while you’re at it!
7.Some of the best concerts, art fairs and other outdoor celebrations take place during the summer, so don’t skip them just because you’ll have to wait in long lines.
8. Try Depend FIT-FLEX Underwear to confidently enjoy doing more of the things you love, while experiencing great leakage protection and peace of mind, even when activities keep you away from the bathroom for hours.
Bladder leakage is normal, especially as we age, and new technologies, like that from Depend FIT-FLEX Underwear, are key to allowing us to continue leading the rewarding and exciting lives we desire.
“I used to avoid all these activities, like boxing, yoga, going out. Wearing Depend underwear has allowed me to fully engage in my life again. I’m out in the world and I’m active,” says Kim, who experiences bladder leakage as a result of giving birth 20 years ago.
Depend FIT-FLEX Underwear comes in sizes small/medium to large/extra large, features form-fitting LYCRA strands for a smooth, comfortable fit, and offers the trusted protection of the Depend brand.
