When you first notice you are experiencing bladder leakage, you're most likely going to be in denial. I know I was! It didn't matter that I was in my 20s, I had already given birth vaginally four times – how was this a surprise? Gone are the days of laughing at my mom for peeing while she sneezes. Now it's my turn.

Depend Silhouette Active Fit briefs

Hands UP for bladder leakage! Actually, put your hands down and cross your legs when you sneeze. And jumping jacks? Fuggetaboutit.

What to wear for bladder leakage? Well, there are several options. I personally recommend Depend Silhouette Active Fit briefs, but you could probably wear a few shower caps sewn together. Or maybe some undies with duct tape inside, and then some cotton balls…? Yeah, let's just stick with Depend.

I don't quite understand why there's a stigma associated with talking about bladder leakage. It's kind of like menstruation – it happens, we deal with it, and we move on.

Bladder leakage in the houuuuuse! Okay, so maybe that's taking it to the extremes, but here's the deal: bladder leakage is common, so let's stop acting like it isn't. I'm an active lady, I love to work out at the gym. Depend Silhouette Active Fit briefs make it so women like us can work out without worry.

Did you know that more 20-somethings experience bladder leakage than those in their 80s? Maybe it's because we're all getting knocked up at such a young age, or maybe it's just because, but it's nice to know that even though I just turned 30, it's not rare for someone my age to pee when they sneeze!

You can't tell which outfit has the Depend Silhouette Active Fit briefs, can you? Of course you can't, because they have a lower rise for an underwear-like look, fit, and feel. They're available in both black and beige colors, and they aren't really that much different than real underwear are.

For every photo and video shared featuring Depend products and using the hashtag #Underwareness, the Depend brand will donate $1, up to $3 million, through 2016 to fund charities that advance the research and education of bladder leakage.

  1. Ha! I noticed this several years ago when we got a trampoline! Then I started jumping rope as part of my workout routine. Noticed a bit of leakage. I certainly don’t want to be left out so I know I have to keep the tears from running down my legs! =)

  2. Great blog. This would definitely be convenient after I have my baby. Every time I sneeze I have an issue

  3. Love all the info and the pictures of Rachel are great!! As a 30 something mom of 3 this is definitely something I relate to. :)

  4. This is such helpful information! I love that they’re finally catering to people who are still active and/or just don’t want to look like they’re wearing a diaper in the world.

  5. Love the pics! Having hugegantic babies killed my insides, so I totally understand having this problem!

  6. I honestly always thought that Depends were only for the elderly. I had no idea they make working options for people my age! As a mother of two little ones, this is good info to know.
    Thanks!

  7. Have to say I have had to run home on several occasions after sneezing or coughing or even a fit of the giggles. Two big baby boys did this to me!

  8. Where was this blog post a few months ago??? I just had my 3Rd child 2 months ago, and let me tell you, I felt like a grandma with a leaky bladder! At one point, I didn’t know if my water was leaking or if my bladder was (hint: it wasn’t my water leaking). I always thought Depends were for the elderly and looked like diapers, I never knew they had some that were for women my age that actually looked like underwear. Luckily, I haven’t had the issue since giving birth, but I am sure it is only a matter of time. Thank you for the hilarious and informative blog post!!

  9. Dude! I need this. The active ones to go under my gym leggings. 3 babies and a hysterectomy left me with nothing to hold that bladder in place.

  10. I love this as I deal with it every day. I am glad that thier are products that help discretely. I can’t tell in the pictures and I don’t expect you to tell that is awesome that they are hidden and not like diapers

  11. This is great. The pics are fabulous. I don’t have leakage issues, I DID while pregnant :(but I’m so glad things like this are around for those times that they are needed!

  12. I could have used these earlier in my life! After 6 kids, if I laugh too hard or sneeze….well, you get the idea, it isn’t pleasant!

  13. this product could be useful in so many ways…. during pregnancy…post pregnancy…people with bladder issues…or even if you get scared so hard you just pee yourself LOL i think that it is also cool that this product feels like regular underwear rather then making you feel uncomfortable while wearing them. great find. :)

  14. Though I’ve had a baby and tried to have him vaginally, there were complications and I needed a c-section to save his life. I guess because of that I don’t have this issue much so I’m lucky. However, my bladder control is not like it used to be. Two beers during happy hour, and a bathroom stop before I leave? I’ll be stopping 10 minutes into my ride to go again or I’ll pee a little wth every bump. Maybe I should get these just for work’s monthly happy hour. ;-) They’ll never know!! And my husband will be happier that he doesn’t have to stop on the car ride home hahaha

  15. After I had hip surgery I had a big time problem with pee pee pants because my muscles were so weak. I honestly didn’t know what to do so I wore a pad every day for a couple months. In the fall I’m having my other hip done and I’ll DEFINITELY be trying these!

  16. After enduring 5 months of bed rest, preclampsia, diabetes and c-section to bring my twins into this world I am very lucky to have a bladder like a steal tank. At least I’ve got that going for me. ;)

  17. These were suggested to me when I had my son. At first I thought there was no way I would need or use them. I was wrong. Especially when I went back to working out and going to the gym more. They are great. Thanks for doing this post.
