Product Sizing and Fit 
Continence Care Management: What a Health Care Professional Needs to Know 
From The National Association For Continence
Sizing and Fit 
• Absorbents use should be customized to each 
person’s unique requirements 
• Bigger is not always better 
• Fit is essential 
• Look for products with re-closable fasteners 
that will adhere to any part of the garment 
• Breathable side panels help with comfort and 
skin integrity
Products 
• Protective pads and pantiliners: 
– One size fits all 
– Light, regular, moderate, maximum 
absorbencies 
– Female use 
• Guards for men 
– One size fits all 
– Extra absorbency but considered for 
moderate leakage 
• Belted undergarments: elastic belts provide a snug 
fit 
– One size fits all 
– Extra absorbency but considered for 
moderate leakage
Products 
• Protective underwear: feels and fits like 
regular underwear 
– X-small, small/medium, large, X-large 
– Extra absorbency 
• Adjustable underwear: stretchable tabs 
adjust to fit and let you change without 
removing your clothes (day and night 
use) 
– Small/medium, large 
– Maximum absorbency 
• Fitted briefs: soft leak guard for 
maximum protection with adjustable tabs 
for comfort and fit (day and night use) 
– Medium, large, X-large 
– Maximum absorbency
Product Selection Advice: 
Women 
Women with light bladder leakage should consider 
disposable pads if: 
• Concerned about containing leakage 
Women should not consider pads if: 
• Discretion is a priority 
• Leakage is heavier than light leakage 
Women with moderate to heavy bladder leakage should 
consider large disposable pads if: 
• Discretion is a priority 
• You can stand up but receive assistance in changing 
the pad 
• Easy to put on product 
Women should not consider pads if: 
• Skin is severely damaged in perineal area 
• Leakage is very heavy 
• They are mobile & active
Product Selection Advice: 
Men 
Men with light bladder leakage should consider 
disposable pads if: 
• Concerned about containing leakage 
Men should not consider pads if: 
• Discretion is a priority 
• Leakage is heavier than light leakage 
Men with moderate to heavy bladder leakage should 
consider disposable protective underwear if: 
• You are most concerned about containing leakage 
• Discretion is a priority 
• You can stand up but receive assistance in changing 
the pad 
• Easy to put on product 
Men should not consider disposable protective 
underwear if: 
• Removal of clothing or changing is difficult 
• Nighttime usage is necessary
Product Selection Advice 
• Additional Tips: 
– Large washable pads may be ideal 
if your leakage is very heavy at 
night. 
– Adjustable underwear with self-adhesive 
refastenable tape tabs 
are a good choice if your leakage 
is heavy and you are unable to 
stand to change the pad.
