Incontinence consumers get better fit with new Depend sizing
Kimberly-Clark’s Depend incontinence brand on Monday released a new sizing for both men and women’s Depend Fit-Flex Underwear to ensure a better fit. A new study from Depend brand found that nearly 1-in-4 Americans living with bladder leakage withdrew from the people and things they love due to discomfort and anxiety.
“We are always looking to help those who experience bladder leakage find a solution to help manage the condition,” Jennifer Nobui, senior brand manager for Depend, said. “We are committed to breaking category stigmas and providing products that allow our consumers to live the same lives they lived before bladder leakage. That’s why we created new sizing to better fit our consumers’ needs and to allow them to reconnect with the people and things they love.”
Depend Fit-Flex is now available in sizes small, medium, large and extra-large for women and sizes small/medium, large and extra-large for men. With more sizes than before, Depend Fit-Flex Underwear provides a better fit for all body shapes and sizes, including an improved waistband to keep the brief in place and new tailored tension for comfort.
“As a licensed psychotherapist, I know that being comfortable both inside and out is essential to living a healthy lifestyle, no matter your age,” Robi Ludwig, Depend brand spokesperson, said. “The new Depend Fit-Flex sizes offer individuals experiencing incontinence a way to feel comfortable and confident in their own skin, which is essential to living your best life at any age.”
