As I inch closer and closer to my mid-40s (lawd) I realize that I can’t just “hope” that I’ll lose those pounds quick or “think” hard enough that it will actually happen. Y’all I have to actually get up and move and be active…when did this happen! Seriously though, as we age sometimes it gets a bit harder to keep the weight off or lose weight as quickly as we did in our younger years. Of course when I want to workout (at home or walking around the neighborhood) I still want to be cute and there is nothing worse than having the perfect outfit ruined. Depend® Silhouette® Active Fit* Briefs for Women allow you to wear any outfit you’d like, during any part of the day, without any worries.
Which leads me to my current “situation”. After having my 2 beautiful, darling angels my body has decided to have a mind of its own and not keep everything quite together like it used to. Not only am I dealing with getting motivated to work off these extra pounds I’m also dealing with stress incontinence. This is related to the strength of the pelvic floor muscles. These are the ones you use to stop your urine midstream. The weaker they are, the more likely you are to leak. So imagine how I felt the first time I went to Zumba class and thought “What in the world just happened.”
Several things can weaken your pelvic muscles over the years, including pregnancy, childbirth, age and extra weight. Well dang I guess I’m 4 for 4 on this! Quadruple whammy! But I refuse to let this minor setback get in the way of me being a fit momma!
With the use of Depend® Silhouette® Active Fit* Briefs for Women, you can seamlessly go about your everyday life without worrying about leaking. For me I deal with this issue when I laugh, cough or sneeze! How embarrassing, but at least now I don’t have to worry about making a run to the restroom or having an extra pair of clothes with me when I’m on the go.
A few other great features about the Depend® Silhouette® Active Fit are that is has a thin design for complete comfort, lower rise sits just below waist, moderate absorbency traps and locks in odor and cotton-like fabric so they feel just like regular undergarments.
And if you’re not completely comfortable picking this item up at your local Walmart you can also order them online. Depend® Silhouette® Active Fit* Briefs for Women can be delivered to your house or you can have in-store pickup as an option and shipping is free (and it’s discretely packaged too!).
I chose in-store pickup because shipping is free and it would arrive a lot sooner. Can’t beat that!
While I am working to improve my diaphragm muscles and pelvic floor muscles, the briefs let me continue my workout doing cardio, stretching and/or strength training. The briefs didn’t rustle and they didn’t look bulky under my exercise pants.
Since they come in nude and black they also compliment any outfit that you’ll be wearing. They are so lightweight that I didn’t even feel any difference from my regular undergarments.
My bladder isn’t as perfect as it used to be and it’s nothing to be ashamed of. It happens to both men and women, young and old and the sooner you deal with it the better your life will be. Don’t let this hinder you from being active. I know I won’t!
Get out there and be active and enjoy life! No one will even know that you may experience a little leakage with these briefs. When I get ready to get out there and be active I make sure to always have an extra pair in my workout bag. They are nice and small and you can roll them up with your other gear.
Ways to avoid those uh-oh moments and stay active:
- Put on your favorite workout top
- Get out those comfy exercise pants and put on your Depend® Silhouette® Active Fit* Briefs
- Drink plenty of water
- Practice doing kegels (exercise consists of repeatedly contracting and relaxing the muscles that form part of the pelvic floor)
- Exercise and enjoy life!
While I understand how embarrassing this topic can be, don’t let it hinder you from getting out there and doing what you love. I hope that this helps anyone out there that may think they’re alone and know that wearing a different kind of underwear is no big deal!
