I Depend on Depend® Silhouette® Active Fit #ad #vn #underwareness

Over 51 million American women experience bladder leakage.  That's 1 in 3 American women*.

There are many common causes of bladder leakage in women including pregnancy, childbirth and even diabetes.

In support of the millions of women who may need a different kind of underwear, the Depend brand is introducing Depend® Silhouette® Active Fit briefs, a new moderate-absorbency brief featuring a thin design for complete comfort and the trusted protection of the Depend brand.  Depend® Silhouette® Active Fit briefs have a lower rise for an underwear-like look, fit and feel.  As a category first, the product is available in black and beige colors.

New Depend® Silhouette® Active Fit briefs feature a cloth-like fabric that is smooth under clothes.

The Depend brand is also entering year two of Underwareness, a social movement and charitable cause to break down the bladder leakage stigma.  As part of Underwareness, the Depend brand is:

Encouraging people to show their support for women with bladder leakage.  For every photo and video shared using #Underwareness, the Depend brand will donate $1 up to $3 million, through 2016 to fund charities that advance the research and education of bladder leakages.

Join the movement and request a free sample of Depend® Silhouette® Active Fit briefs at  Together, we can show that wearing a different kind of underwear is no big deal.

I've learned over time that there are things you can control in life and things you can't.

As I have gotten older and am transitioning into menopause I notice that my body is starting to change.  Unfortunately,  there are times when I sneeze, cough or laugh and lose some bladder control.  This was preventing me from doing things that I love because I didn't want to leave home.   I was afraid I would have an accident or be in an embarrassing situation.  I love to run and have always longed to run in the Boston Marathon.   Unfortunately, due to health and feet problems I am unable to.   I have many close friends who run the Boston Marathon though.  I usually go out to support my friends and live vicariously through them for the day.  But this past year  I almost stayed away because I was so concerned with my incontinence.  I knew I had to be there to support them though.

Changes in my body have forced me to do less of the things that I love to do as often as I would like.  Running is one of them.   When I do run, I depend on Depends for protection.  I know that I can go out running with confidence when I use Depends because they have top quality materials and absorbancy that keep moisture away from my body and do not leak.  Now with the Depend® Silhouette® Active Fit briefs I get an even better feeling of security because they look and feel so much like regular underwear.

I like to stay active and am always on the go.  I love to take long walks and go to the gym, but for a while I found myself exercising a lot less because of light bladder control trouble as well.  I tried using pads  to aid in this problem but they just were bulky and uncomfortable and didn't control odor well.

Depend® Silhouette® Active Fit undergarments give me confidence to go out and do the things I love.  The discreet undergarment fits like panties but has protection for the times I lose slight control of my bladder.  They are extremely comfortable and look great under my sweat pants.  They whisk moisture away from my body and they aren't bulky at all.

Depend® Silhouette® Active Fit allow me to get out and live freely without feeling insecure or uncomfortable.  I no longer worry about the possibility of being in an awkward situation.  I can just be me.

  1. I hadn't realized they came out with a panty--I will have to try these out and see how they feel on me.
