Join the #Underwareness Movement and Fight the Stigma

What is up with the stigma around bladder leakage? I have several friends that I compare accident stories with but then there are others who seem to be ashamed of it. I was a little embarrassed when it started happening to me but I did a lot of research and found that it’s actually very common.

Did you know: More people with bladder leakage are 50 or younger than 60 or older!

There is no rule that says you have to be above or below a certain age to experience bladder leakage. In fact a number of life changes and experiences can cause it to happen – regardless of age. Anything could trigger it: running, jumping, coughing, sneezing, laughing… The bottom line is it happens and it definitely isn’t the end of the world.

I’m 33 and I have, and still do, experienced bladder leakage. I was embarrassed at first – no way was I talking about it with anyone. Then I realized I’m not alone; chances are someone (closer than you may think) has experienced bladder leakage as well.

Did you know: More people with bladder leakage are in their 20s than their 80s

The options for women needing bladder leakage protection used to be limited. You could wear bulky pads or bulky diapers… or you could just deal with it and risk being smelly all day. No thank you! Depend has their all new Silhouette Active Fit and they say “Stigma be damned!”


Depend Silhouette Active Fit briefs are a new moderate-absorbency brief that feature a thin design for complete comfort with the trusted protection of the Depend brand and a lower rise+ for an underwear-like look, fit and feel. They are available in black and beige colors.

Depend provides discrete products that help people regain their freedom and get their lives back. Regain your self-esteem and join me in the Underwareness movement!

You may recall the first time we talked about the #Underwareness movement Depend initiated. They are now in their second year of the social movement/charitable cause breaking down the bladder leakage stigma. As part of underwareness Depend is encouraging people to show their support for women with bladder leakage.

For every photo and video shared using #Underwareness and featuring Depend products, the Depend brand will donate $1, up to $3 million, through 2016 to fund charities that advance the research and education of bladder leakage.

Did you know: There are 51 million women out there that experience bladder leakage

Now it’s your turn to support the cause (and why wouldn’t you?!) Visit to support the cause and get your free samples of Depend Silhouette Active Fit.

#DropYourPants for the #Underwareness Movement: Depend to the Rescue

Thank you to Depend for sponsoring today’s post about the #dropyourpants for #underwareness movement.

Pregnancy and childbirth both bring some pretty amazing things to your life. Then there’s the negative; like the coughing and sneezing thing. You know what I’m talking about, right? You sneeze or cough and then you think or say CRAP (or other choice words)! You probably didn’t realize you had to use the bathroom.

But there it is.

There are many things that can cause bladder leakage regardless of age, sex or nationality. Not everyone will experience it but those that have and do have Depend. Depend isn’t just for the elderly and it isn’t a diaper. It’s a discreet way to prevent embarrassing moments that could happen to anyone!

I had a friend that taught me all about laughing it off. We could be sitting in her living room or out to dinner and a sneeze would be all it took. When she started using Depend she was able to either ignore the issue or laugh about it. She always gave credit to Depend for restoring her self esteem. That’s why Depend is a company I’m proud to stand behind. #DropYourPants for the #Underwareness Movement: Depend to the Rescue
