I had an incident where my leakage exceeded the capacity of my pad and I had some leakage onto my trousers, though my plastic pants mostly contained it. I couldn’t get to a toilet due to being stuck in a huge queue at a train station and it was very uncomfortable and stressful. Should I move up to a more absorbent pad or just treat it as a one off and see how I go? I use shaped pads with an 800ml capacity and they’re usually fine.
The best solution in my opinion is to bite the bullet and wear a belted slip. They are available in differing absorbencies from I.D. Expert. I can lose a full bladder`s worth and still not have any leakage on to my underwear. They are easy to put on and very soon contour to one`s body. They are not bulky and no one will know. I have total peace of mind 24/7 and the slips will last for hours without you having to keep changing yourself and having a supply of fresh pads with you. Pads as such all have their limitations.
