Shop at Walmart to find a comfortable solution to help deal with a symptom of aging that women never want to talk about.
Do you suffer from urinary incontinence? According to the Journal of the American Medicine Association, urinary incontinence affects at least one out of three older women. Incontinence is that embarrassing situation when a few drops of urine leak when coughing or laughing – or if you’re like me, during a Pilates practice. Because Pilates emphasizes your body’s core — the abdomen, obliques, lower back, inner and outer thigh – I have found that lately when I do this type of workout, putting added pressure on my lower abdomen and back is just enough strain to cause what I affectionately refer to as “Pilates piddle.” How embarrassing. I don’t want to give up my Pilates that I enjoy. How does one discreetly deal with a common problem like this?
Luckily, I was recently offered to be paid to try out a product that is designed to help me feel confident if and when those embarrassing urinary incontinent moments might occur — like during my Pilates workout.
Depend® Silhouette Active Fit Briefs for Women are made from a cotton-like fabric that breathes and stretches with my Pilates moves and are yoga pants approved. Their thin design is smooth under clothes and comfortable to wear. They come in two colors – black and tan – so they are discreet under any garments. And because they are made by Depend®, I knew it was protection that I could trust.
Just to make sure Depend® Silhouette Active Fit Briefs for Women delivered as they promised, I took the #YogaPantChallenge. With a $15 gift card that I was given for this post, I went to my local WalMart to purchase the briefs. There were a variety of sizes and packages to choose from Walmart Activewear Gift Sets. It was easy to locate the briefs that fit me.
For the #YogaPantChallenge, I wore the same yoga pants to two different Pilates classes, but had different undergarments each time. One practice I wore my regular black panty briefs and the other practice I wore Depend® Silhouette Active Fit Briefs for Women. The Active Fit Briefs were a little stiff at first, but it didn’t take long for them to feel comfortable with my different Pilates moves. And when I felt a little Pilates piddle coming on, I didn’t have to stress out about leakage; the briefs had me covered.
Sure enough, no one in the class could tell I had them on. When I explained the challenge to my Pilates teacher, she was really impressed. Even she couldn’t tell the difference. She had me pull down my waist band to prove that I actually had on the Depend® Silhouette Active Fit Briefs for Women!! Can you tell which picture I had on the active fit briefs?
It’s embarrassing enough to know that I sometimes experience Pilates piddle. I certainly don’t want my fellow Pilates class members to know my dilemma. Wearing Depend® Silhouette Active Fit Briefs for Women, I can be assured my situation goes undetected, giving me confidence and peace of mind with another one of life’s aging challenges.
How about you? Are you woman enough to take the #YogaPantChallenge? I’d love to hear your results!!!
