Thank you to Depend for sponsoring today’s post about the #underwareness movement.

Okay, ladies … let’s be honest! Pee happens. As Moms we get our fair share of urine experiences from baby boys that spray us in the face to bladder leakage during pregnancy, or bladder leakage when we laugh until we cry, or, pee.

Yes, I’ve peed my pants! A few times! (Ok, slightly more than a few times!) When I was pregnant for my oldest I was peeing my pants so often one day after he’d “dropped” that I checked into labor and delivery certain that my water had broken. I know I’m not alone in this. In fact, I used to tease certain family members that I couldn’t make them laugh or they’d pee their pants, too! Heh, jokes on me these last few years! Well, until I discovered the #underwareness movement!

But, it would seem that bladder leakage isn’t a joke – and its also not uncommon. In fact 65 million people experience bladder leakage. And, 51 million women have been quietly embarrassed by their leaking bladders for years! Want to hear something even more surprising? More people with bladder leakage are in their 20’s than their 80’s! In fact, the average age of someone with bladder leakage is only 52 and more people with bladder leakage are 50 or younger than 60 or older!

I know this is a sensitive topic but it’s really important for other women to know that they aren’t the only ones that pee their pants sometimes!

Many women rely on feminine care products or nothing at all to manage their little leaks because they don’t know there are solutions designed specifically for bladder leakage or they don’t think incontinence products are for them. Depend Silhouette Active Fit briefs have a lower rise+ for an underwear-like look, fit and feel. As a category first, Depend SAF is available in black and beige colors!

Depend is entering year two of Underwareness, a social movement and charitable cause to break down the bladder leakage stigma. As part of Underwareness, the Depend brand is encouraging people to show their support for women with bladder leakage. For every photo and video shared using #Underwareness and featuring Depend products, the Depend brand will donate $1, up to $3 million, through 2016 to fund charities that advance the research and education of bladder leakage.

Visit www.Underwareness.com to support the cause and request free samples of Depend Silhouette Active Fit.
