For daily use – Depend Fit-Flex
It’s hard to just choose one to recommend here because there are a number of great brands and products. And as I mentioned before, what fits med doesn’t necessarily fit you. With that said, one of the most popular disposable pee proof pants are Depend Fit-Flex. Most users like their style, absorption capacity, leak protection, odor control, and fit.

All brands mentioned above have overnight options. I think Tranquility Premium Overnight is the best incontinence pants for women.because their absorbency is unmatched. Most people who have problems with severe or total incontinence love these. I would say they’re almost more a diaper than a pant, but that is just semantics. What ever works… Like most of these incontinence underwear, they have tear-away sides for easy removal.
The best reusable incontinence pants for women
If you’re not suffering from really severe or total incontinence, I think that reusable underwear make the best incontinence pants for women. They don’t have quite the same absorption capacity, but I think they win in so many other ways. First of all they make you feel a little bit more normal, and are so much more discreet. Second the pants will save both money and the environment. Finally, they will make you look great. There are wonderful styles to choose from, and they’re all better than the disposable ones.
For light dribbles – Modibodi & Knix
Absorbency: up to 20ml
Unless you actually just dribble or leak very little pee, I wouldn’t recommend neither Modibodi nor Knix. Their leak proof pants with maximum absorbency can handle up to 15-20 ml. That is not an awful lot. But I do want to include them because they have so many lovely styles in great quality. They’re both leak proof underwear brands, they don’t specialize in urinary incontinence. That means they’re designed for all kinds of little leaks, pee, period, heavy discharge and sweat.
Modibodi’s best selling pee proof pant is the Classic Bikini. It holds up to 20 ml of fluids. The best part about a classic is that it works for any occasion and over time.
Knix has both innovative and unique leak proof designs. We’re talking extra support and stability, lace, thongs, and the ultimate leak proof sleep shorts. They call them The Dream Short. It has a thicker waistband and a 4-way stretch material that moves when you move.
