I just noticed the thing on the Depend.com main page about the new Depend Silhouette underwear. It says it's coming out in April, but I'm wondering if anyone has seen it sold early in their area? I'm really intrigued about how these will compare to the regular underwear. The one thing I'm really hoping for is a smaller and lower waistband. I find the current style rides up above my bellybutton and sticks out my pants, which at least with the colored designs isn't as bad.

I tried the new Silhouette For Women and I loved it! I hated the other depenses because they were so uncomfortable and never fit right. I will be a Silhouette For Women customer for the rest of my life. I will be 99 December 1st 2012 and had never worn depense.

i tried the new silhouettes and love them, but why do your coupons always say to buy 2 packages. why can't it be for just one package at a time.

Well there have been many pros and cons both on the men discussion and women's discussion. I just found these at my local CVS and bought a package. A bit expensive, but with anything new the cost is always high. I remember the comments about how easy they tear, so I was careful when trying on the first pair. Yep, a slight tear, but managed. I must say they do fit better and those who have had or having issues, everyone's body is different, so trial and error. Overall a great improvement!

I was thrilled to receive the sample in my regular Depends purchase. They feel wonderful but they are not durable enough for daily use. They rip and tear easily during routine potty breaks. So disappointing. They are more expensive and you get less in the package. In the future I will use them only for special occasions. I will continue my search for an equally comfortable, durable product. You are on the right track but they need reinforcement.

And to add to my above comment, the new product does not gather up on the back side. This IS a great improvement. If Depends can slightly strengthen the tear zone, it think it would be perfect for me. Again all, each to their own. We have all learned what product / size works best, disposal system, travel hints, experienced & cured diaper rash. For this these new Silhouette Underwear will be a hit with some and negative to others. This is understandable. My hope is the improvement on the tearing AND cost. I expect other diaper manufacturers will examine what Depends has done and make adjustments as well. Good luck everyone!

I tried the sample and the material SMELLS horrible!!! The smell does not go away either. It made me very concerned as to what kind of chemicals they may have put into it. After you have it on for awhile the back of the legs start to gap. The material is soft and it hugs your body. Wish they'd go back to white as the peach causes rashes for many plus it's not a very appealing color. Price info: Target shows that the s/med is in their stores and the Large can be bought online. HOWEVER: There are only 10 in a box and the large size box costs $11.89!! That is not affordable for me. The Depends that are currently being sold are much more affordable and that means a lot to someone who is on a fixed income! If Depends decides to discontinue their current brand and cost I will sadly have to find a different brand.(wish they'd go back to the white color). I do not know why on earth they keep trying to make "New and Improved". I am not interested in "Designer Depends. I can understand making some improvements but trying to make them into "Designer Underwear" ??? Really?? I just don't think too many ladies who are incontinent are thinking of modeling their Depends for anyone. Absorbancy and comfort are my main concerns. I can't help but wonder if the people at Depends that come up with these ideas actually test them out themselves (and not for just 5 minutes). If they have a "test" group of incontinent people that use them then shame on them for approving these. If Depends is just dead set on changing them then please remember that old saying: If you don't succeed the first time, then try, try, again. Please! For the sake of all of us that need them. Thanks!

Or, Velvet, if it ain't broke(n) then don't fix it! I see what you are saying and I, too, hope that they don't completely do away with the older styles. But you also raised a good point in wondering who actually tries out new products before they go on the market. That way, if most of those who try it out don't like it, then it should be back to the drawing board. I have to agree that absorbency and comfort should be the main consideration, not whether they can be used for modeling!

Thank you all for your comments and feedback. Be assured that each and every concern is being noted and reviewed. Thanks again, Jane

I really like the fit and comfort, but I have worn them twice and both times they leaked out the sides before I could get to a restroom and as a result my jeans had wet spots. Seems they still need some improvement.

I saw a Doctor on YouTube talking about incontinence and he said something that made a lot of sense to me…

Extra pounds mean excess pressure on your bladder. With a weight loss of just 5–10%, you can prevent this…and help control urinary leakage.
Do 3-4 sets of these pelvic floor muscle exercises every day, and you can strengthen the muscles that help control urination.
Drinking less makes urine more concentrated, and may irritate the lining of the urethra and bladder. Keep your bladder healthy with at least 50-oz of water a day.
Urine leakage can be caused by many factors, and may be improved or cured with the right diagnosis. Consult your doctor or a specialist to discuss your situation.
By keeping a bathroom journal and recording fluid intake, bathroom trips and leaks – you’ll discover patterns to share with your doctor.
While you can’t prevent urine odor, you can curb it by drinking more water, taking urine-deodorizing tablets, like vitamin C; or drinking non-citrus juices.
Caffeine, alcohol, acidic foods, chocolate, artificial sweeteners, carbonated drinks and spices can irritate your bladder. If any of these trigger your leakage, remove them from your diet.
