What are the Different Types of Adult Diapers?

Diapers fall into three main categories: Pull-ups, Reusable Diapers, and briefs.

Pull-ups

Pull-ups are thin, made of cloth-like materials, and fit discreetly under a dress or pants. They're particularly beneficial for people who are still relatively independent.

Consider pull-up diapers for your loved one if:

  • They’re only mildly or moderately incontinent.
  • They’re able to make it to the bathroom sometimes.
  • They’re able to pull their pants up and down.

Reusable Diapers

Reusable diapers are made from cloths of various absorbencies. They can be safely washed and dried with other clothing and then worn again.

Consider pull-up diapers for your loved one if:

  • They’re only mildly or moderately incontinent.
  • They’re able to make it to the bathroom sometimes.
  • They’re able to pull their pants up and down.

Adult briefs

Briefs fit snugly around the abdomen, crotch, and rear. They have flexible tabs on either side, allowing for a comfortable fit. They're very absorbent, great at preventing overflow and contain a thick core that wicks away moisture and odors.

Consider pull-up diapers for your loved one if:

  • They’re only mildly or moderately incontinent.
  • They’re able to make it to the bathroom sometimes.
  • They’re able to pull their pants up and down.
