Underwear and Briefs


There is a common misconception regarding incontinence underwear vs briefs.

A “Brief” is not a pull-on style incontinence product. While in the common underwear terminology, a brief is stepped into and pulled up to be worn, this is NOT what an incontinence brief is. In incontinence terminology, a “brief” is a tape-tab style product that opens, and the tape tabs are fastened at the hip, like baby diapers.

“Disposable Absorbent Underwear” (DAU) is a pull-on style product that is stepped into and pulled up to be worn, like traditional underwear.


Pull-on style incontinence products, are quickly becoming the most popular style. They are ideal for adults who manage their own incontinence and want to wear a product that is similar to traditional underwear, in both look and feel. Disposable Absorbent Underwear are also recommended for adults with Alzheimer’s disease because they are worn like regular underwear, triggering the muscle memory of pulling on underwear like they always have. Plus, adults with Alzheimer’s may want to remove or pull at the tape-tabs on a disposable brief, which isn’t an issue with DAUs.


For adults with limited mobility and limited use of the toilet, consider using briefs. People with limited mobility may not be able to stand or may have difficulty lifting their legs, making a pull-on style product too difficult to change. Disposable briefs can be changed while an individual is laying down and the tabs can be repositioned for a comfortable fit. Additionally, disposable briefs are preferred by some with unique body shapes because the brief can be tightened to fit your shape.
