Our Guide to the Best Incontinence Pads for Runners

Although pull up pants are often the recommended running option, you can also choose a pad if you prefer this option. Many people feel more comfortable in an all in one pad due to the security of a pad with a pant design. On the other hand, some people with very light incontinence only require a small, light pad.

What to Look for in a Running Pad

A close-fit design. For running, you need a pad that will not move around or cause discomfort. You find a close fit pad that is ideally anatomically shaped to fit securely and provide maximum security.

A smaller size. If possible, try and find a pad of a smaller size. This will guarantee more discretion and will allow you to relax more when running in view of others.

Breathable material. The last thing you want during running is skin discomfort. Try and choose a pad with breathable, soft material that will not irritate the skin during use.

Freedom of movement. Pads that are uncomfortable to move in or feel tight and restrictive are not ideal. If you choose an all in one pad, ensure it is a pad that provides maximum freedom of movement. This will often be included in the description of the product.

 

Top Tip: If necessary, wear your incontinence pad with a fixation pant to keep it securely in place.
