Are you unhappy with the revamped new Silhouette? I am. The new beige product is thinner and no longer able to hold enough urine to get me to the toilet. MY experience with the old peach colored Silhouette was positive. It fit well, held urine and did not leak through the seat of my pants. I felt so confident and happy that I had them to help me. Depend has rebated me $70.00 for apology purposes, but I valued the well fitting old style and am so disappointed, How about you?

I live in Florida and it is very humid. When I walk the front part comes unglued from the panty part and sticks to me. Very uncomfortable.
What are your main challenges and how you overcome them?
I want to know which pads would be best for my incontinence problems. I've tried other companies before but I felt some discomfort and they were too bulky. Suggestions?
DEPENDS RECENTLY CHANGED THEIR "PROTECTION WITH TABS" FROM 3 TABS TO 2 TABS.THEY ALSO CHANGED THE DESIGN FROM AN OUTSIDE PLASTIC/VINYL COVER TO PAPER.THE NEW PRODUCT DOES NOT STAY I PLACE AND TENDS TO MOVE DOWN.IT ALSO DOES NOT HAVE A PLACTIC/VINYL COVER AS THE OLD ONE DID - WHILE THE NEWER ONE SEEMS VERY ABSORBENT - THE QUALITY OF CONSTRUCTION IS POOR.THE NEWER MODEL TABS HAVE A TENDENCY TO JUST RIP AWAY AND PULL OFF FROM THE DIAPER MAKING IT USELESS. - YESTERDAY ALONE WE DISCARDED 4 DIAPER FROM ONE PACKAGE BECAUSE THE TABS RIPPED AWAY - ON THE PERSON'S RIGHT SIDE, NOT THE LEFT. SO THEY APPARENTLY HAVE A QUALITY ISSUE AS WELL.OTHERS HAVE SIMILAR ISSUES?
Ten years ago, my first experience with incontinence happened at the office. I had squatted down to put an item in the employee refrigerator and suddenly I was leaking. I stood up and could not stop the flow. I ran down the hall to the restroom and could not stop the flow. I ran into a stall, sat down and emptied my bladder, but by then my pants were soaked down to my knees. I managed to mop up some of the moisture with paper towels, then made it to my desk without being seen, put on my coat and grabbed my purse. I drove home all the while thinking, "What just happened??". At home, I told my husband, "I just had a most disturbing experience!" and told him the story. I then changed and headed back to the office. After that I began having anxiety attacks at grocery stores and during staff meetings. A few months later I learned that my incontinence was due to pelvic organ prolapse. Non-surgical intervention and treatment has improved the situation, but alleviating the anxiety of incontinence by using Depend has been the biggest improvement to my overall quality of life. Thank you Depend on being there for those of us who suffer with pelvic organ prolapse!
This for all the woman still using sanitary napkins! Think they're less embarrassing to wear/purchase ? Well get real girls they're not the same! Pads for absorbing blood have different filling. The fibers are thicker when wet... the pads show in your pants and wiggle when you walk! AND they/YOU smell pissy! Bladder controle pads have ingredients that neutralize urine's acids, so you don't have that telltale oder.They don't have fibers that swell when wet, lnstead jell absorbs without puffing, voila! no wiggling under your butt ! I'm a senior female needing more protection at times (like IBS) the bladder panties ( I call, my pull-ups) give full coverage. They're oder preventing,leak proof,smoothe/no-show and PS they aren't plastic (no swetting). at check-out no one notices theyre BLADDER pads....
