Don't Let Bladder Leakage Keep You From Enjoying Life and All Its Special Moments #Underwareness #IC #ad

Introducing the new Depend Silhouette Active Fit BriefsSilhouette® Active Fit*

Offers moderate bladder leakage for today's women and their busy, active lifestyles



It is funny how when you tell family and friends that you are pregnant for the first time, that they shower you will all the congratulations, but leave out minor details about what happens to your body after giving birth.  Yes, you have a glowing appearance while pregnant, and for most it is an amazing experience feeling a child grow inside of you.  But, there are also things to consider after the delivery, that go beyond caring for your new bundle of joy.  


So, what am I talking about?  Let's start with hemorrhoids. :-)  I was lucky enough to get these at the end of the pregnancy with both of my girls.  It took about 6 months for them to go away after my pregnancy.  But, the big surprise that most women experience but forget to mention, is bladder leakage.  All the kegel exercises in the world can't tighten up your undercarriage sort of speak, like it was prior to childbirth.  Come on, you just passed a watermelon sized baby through and expected it to go back to normal.  Hahaha!  Are you laughing with me? :-)  If you are, be sure you are crossing your legs tight...you know why.



Did you know?....  "Over 51 million American women experience bladder leakage. That’s 1 in 3 American women."


An unexpected sneeze that sneaks up on your, a squat during an exercise class even without a full bladder, or simply driving the kids around from one activity to the next and moving too quickly can result in the uh oh moment.  Bladder leakage, while not talked about unless with your close girlfriends and comparing horror stories of when and to what degree it happened, does happen on a regular basis for many women.  In addition to childbirth, women who are currently pregnant or have diabetes may also experience occasional or frequent bladder leakage.  But, you don't have to give up your hobbies or cut short family outings due to worrying about if and when a bladder leakage incident will occur.  We should be enjoying everyday and moving at our own pace and doing a cartwheel or happy dance if we want, without trying our hardest to do a kegel squeeze or clench our legs like we are trying to hold on for dear life.  And, thanks to a wonderful product, which I was able to try out firsthand, Depend Silhouette Active Fit Briefs, is here to let women of any age take back their active lives without missing a beat worrying about bladder leakage.



What are Depend Silhouette Active Fit Briefs you ask?  Well, for starters they are not diapers.  I know many of my friends when I told them I was reviewing Depend Silhouette Active Fit Briefs asked if they were adult diapers.  Come one, we are in our prime and the last thing we should feel embarrassed about it what we reach for for bladder leakage protection.  Depend Silhouette Active Fit Briefs are just that...briefs.  


They look and feel just like your average underwear -- I thought they were more comfortable than the underwear I usually wear and hugged just the right spots :-) -- but with a new moderate-absorbency layer built into the brief. 


It is thin enough that your will not feel like you are wearing a bulky pad, but will provide bladder leakage protection every women seeks.  


Check out these women's reactions to visiting an “underwear only” gym with someone wearing the new Depend Silhouette Active Fit Briefs.






Who knew that there was a product on the market for women who experience bladder leakage and want a way to stay active without worrying about an accident, that looks and offers the complete comfort of a regular pair of underwear you would generally reach for each morning. The Depend brand is known for this trusted protection, and after trying them out for myself, I can see why some many women love them.





Here are a few photos I took of the Depend Silhouette Active Fit Briefs, so that you can see just what I am talking about. 







As you can see from the photos the new line of Depend Silhouette Active Fit briefs have a lower rise  making them look, fit and feel like the underwear your are to to wearing, compared to other bladder leakage products you may have tried in the past.  In addition, the new Depend Silhouette Active Fit briefs is made of a cloth-like fabric that will have you forgetting you wearing underwear meant to help protect from bladder leakage.  Like I said, you will not have to worry about feeling like you are wearing a bulky pad.  Instead, the Depend Silhouette Active Fit briefs looks smooth under your clothes.  You can wear Depend briefs under your workout clothes, comfy pajamas or yoga pants to run errands, and not feel embarrassed that people will know you are wearing something to offer an extra level of leakage protection.  You will feel confident and beautiful when you put on a pair of the new Depend Silhouette Active Fit briefs.  I couldn't help but strike a pose in the mirror with these briefs on, as they fit perfectly and looked good.  





Available in sizes small to X-large and black and beige colors, the Depend Silhouette Active Fit brief is what every women who experiences bladder leakage needs.  I may not have talked about bladder leakage with friends and family before, but after trying out the Depend Silhouette Active Fit briefs for myself, I can't stop raving about them, and talking about how excited I am to not have to miss special moments in my girls' life, skip an exercise, etc, worrying about if I would experience bladder leakage.  It truly feels empowering to take back my active lifestyle without worrying about bladder leakage.  Now, I just have to think about what color Depend Silhouette Active Fit brief to wear -- black or beige. :-)


If you or someone you know make up part of the 51 million plus women who experience bladder leakage, why not give the new Depend Silhouette Active Fit briefs a try?  


What do you have to lose? Once you try them out, you will see why I and so many other women are not feeling embarrassed about bladder leakage anymore. :-)
