Choosing the Best Incontinence Pads for Men

  • On May 29, 2019

Shockingly, there are 4 million men with some form of bladder problem in the UK. Due to many men never speaking about the problem, this number could be even higher.

Many men are worried about being perceived as less capable or less masculine due to incontinence. With help of adverts such as TENA’s “TENA Men” advert, there is hope for male incontinence being more widely understood. The market for male pads is expanding and offers a diverse selection. Read about the best men’s shaped pads and how to choose the best incontinence pads for men.


Why Choose a Shaped Incontinence Pad?

Incontinence pads remain the most popular incontinence products in the market, as they are discreet and easy to buy. The removal process is also easier, compared to pull up pants which require a full product removal. Many people also prefer wearing a pad inside normal underwear, rather than a pull up product. The concept of wearing pull up pants instead of normal underwear can also seem strange to many people. Shaped pads also rarely make you feel uncomfortable or too warm, which can sometimes be the case with bulkier products.

For light incontinence, you can shop smaller shaped pads with lower absorbency. Our light pads for men range is ideal for men with lighter leaks. Moderate to heavier incontinence often requires a larger shaped pad. If you have severe incontinence, it is recommended that you try an all in one pad.

What to Look for in a Pad


  • Breathability and skin friendly. Particularly if you have sensitive skin, choose a pad that is breathable. If you are sensitive to latex, choose a pad that is latex free.
  • Look for the smallest pad that will suit your severity level. Avoid unnecessary bulk if you have light incontinence. The best incontinence pads for men with light incontinence are small and discreet.
  • Choose a reliable brand. Finding a brand you recognise and already have trust in is advisable. Most online incontinence stores do stock the most popular brands of products.
  • Look for odour control technology. Most products will have this feature, which neutralises odours and masks any unwanted smells.
