Having bladder leaks doesn’t mean you should give up the latest fashion trends
Bladder leaks affect millions of women. Some might lose a few drops of urine when they cough or laugh, and others may not be able to control a sudden urge to urinate. Pregnancy, childbirth, constipation, nerve damage, menopause or even endometriosis can cause bladder leaks in different degrees. However, being blessed with a rogue bladder doesn’t mean you should stop wearing beautiful and trendy clothes.
Here are 3 fashion tips to manage bladder leaks in style:
1. Invest in Leakproof Underwear
Yeah, you read it right. There is such a thing as leakproof underwear. Marrying beautiful designs with an ultra-thin, built-in pantyliner, Knix offers really comfortable underwear that protects from those minor oopsies that come with real life. Laugh, jump, exercise at will, as these beautiful panties offer up to three tsp of leak protection. An ideal protection for light bladder leaks and a back-up ally for your period. Isn’t it genius?
Did I mention that these panties are completely VPL free (as in no visible panty lines) and made from Italian performance textiles sourced from the world of cycling? Buh, bye, granny pants and hello, XXI Century underwear for active women!
2. Mind Your Pants
Finding the right pair of trousers is vital in order to control a rogue bladder. Too many times, very tight jeans sit right over the bladder, causing it to be irritated and flare-up way more often than it should.
To control bladder leaks, try and switch to stylish pants that sit on your natural waist or that have an elastic waistband to avoid any unnecessary pressure. This year, paperbag trousers and maxi dresses are making a big comeback and will be your BFF during the summer. Looking for a professional alternative? Then you should check out the most comfortable yoga work pants (see my review of Betabrand here) or Uniqlo’s latest collection with Ines de la Fressange. This pair of cotton linen twill trousers has an adjustable waistband that can help you manage in style those days when your bladder wants to take control of your life.
3. Eat Healty Insta-Worthy Foods
Caffeine, alcohol, and sugary drinks can flare up an angry bladder. Instead of feeding the monster with a rainbow latte, how about you switch to a healthier latte with superfoods or an all-natural smoothie? Instagram is filled with great ideas involving fruits and veggies that will help you calm down your bladder in style.
