New Study Shows Comfort and Confidence are Key to Living a Fulfilled Life at Any Age
Depend brand launches more sizes of FIT-FLEX Underwear to give users better fit and more comfort

DALLAS, May 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- For the nearly 65 million Americans experiencing bladder leakage, well-fitting undergarments are essential to living a comfortable life while remaining confidently protected from leaks. A new study from Depend® brand shows comfort and confidence are essential to living a happy life, with nearly one in four Americans living with bladder leakage withdrawing from the people and things they love due to discomfort and anxiety. To help provide a new sense of comfort and protection, Depend brand announced today the release of new sizing for both men and women's Depend FIT-FLEX Underwear to ensure a better fit.

"We are always looking to help those who experience bladder leakage find a solution to help manage the condition," said Jennifer Nobui, Senior Brand Manager for Depend brand. "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."

Now available in additional sizes, Depend FIT-FLEX Underwear is designed to be our best-fitting, most comfortable underwear. 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," said Dr. Robi Ludwig, Depend brand spokesperson. "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."

As a part of its continued commitment to consumers, Depend brand wants all consumers to find the best fit for their shape and size. That's why it offers the Best Fit Guarantee. If a consumer is not satisfied with the new size of Depend FIT-FLEX Underwear they will be reimbursed for their purchase to try another size.
