No-one much likes to talk about adult incontinence, but it is good to know there are products like Tena Pants available to help when you, or someone you are close to, develops incontinence.

My elderly mother's dementia has worsened considerably over the past few months.

In the summer, she started bed-wetting. By autumn, she had become doubly incontinent, meaning that she could no longer control either her bladder or her bowels.

She was assigned an incontinence nurse, and I learned about Tena Pants which were available to order through the Health Care system.

I decided to write this review because until my own mother developed incontinence, I did not know such a product was available.

What are Tena Pants?

There are various types of Tena pants available on the market, ranging from washable to disposable pants.

The type I use are disposable, and the cost of them are easily offset against the savings in laundry costs.

They come in a range of sizes from small through to large to suit every body size and shape.

They do not show through clothing, and I am told they are very comfortable to wear.

Most importantly, they keep the user dry.

Even heavily soiled pants have not leaked through to outerwear or soft furnishings, and this is of vital importance for the well-being of the user.

The Benefits of Tena Pants

  • Just like real underpants, they are elasticated round the waist and legs. This gives them a cosy fit as well as added security.
  • They are pull up/pull down, just like underpants.
  • The padding front, underneath and back is super-absorbent, and keeps the skin dry even after full urination.
  • There is a small tape attached to the back of the pants to allow for easy roll-up and disposal after use.
  • The sides can be torn off in event the user is unable to remove pants in the normal fashion.
  • They are comfortable to wear.
  • They do not allow leakage through to clothing.
  • Tena Pants are discreet. It is hard to tell if the user is wearing them or not, as they do not show through even tight clothing.
  • The user can wear them for added safety while still visiting the toilet on a regular basis.


Have you ever suffered from incontinence (as an adult)?

Do They Work All Night Long?

Tena Pants are much better than disposable pads that are worn inside underpants, or placed on bed mattresses, as there is no chance of spillage.

They are very cleverly designed to absorb urine or fecal matter while leaving the user feeling comfortable.

It is never a good idea to leave someone wearing soiled Tena pants or even underpants for long, but it is much easier to simply remove the disposable product, wash the person clean and simply put a new pair on.

Before Tena Pants came along, there was always some spillage which resulted in a major clean-up job.

Super Absorbancy Tena Pants keeps the incontinent person dry all night long.

Causes of Adult Incontinence

Adult incontinence can be short-term or long-term.

It can be caused by various diseases and conditions, and can be suffered by both men and women.

It is possible more common than you think too. 1 in 4 women suffer from incontinence at some point in their lives, and 1 in 8 men.

Where to Buy Tena Pants

It is good to know that there is a product on the market that will really work to discreetly keep you dry and comfortable.

You can buy Tena Pants from Tena.com, Amazon or any major pharmaceutical store.

It is certainly much easier to have them delivered directly to your door, as I do. Boxes of them are bulky and awkward to carry.

Most companies will wrap the boxes in plain labels so your neighbors do not know what you are taking delivery of.

Incontinence is something no-one wants to talk about, nor do sufferers want others to know.

They do not need to know, and the Tena company have done a great job both with their products and their marketing.
