Nexwear: Meeting Incontinence Needs for Today’s Woman Over 50

Nexwear Review on Over 50 Feeling 40

I am excited today to introduce you to Nexwear, a line of new products for incontinence.  I am going to show you how the creators of Nexwear listened to our needs as modern women over 50 and answered the call.

But first, please allow me to share my story.



During my late thirties and early forties, I experienced four pregnancies and was blessed to bring three amazing individuals into this world.  With each pregnancy, my problems with leakage became more prominent.  At first, I was completely taken off-guard by it and had some…let’s just say…rather embarrassing moments when a cough or sneeze happened outside of my house.  Wearing protection made me feel “old” and I wasn’t ready to face facts.  You do not have to go through many episodes in public, before you admit that there is a problem. I can remember feeling like a part of my life was over and I was forced to live a life I wasn’t ready for.  It may sound dramatic, but it is very true that to face this in your early forties creates fear that you might have to stop living an active life.

I share all of this, so you will understand that I have a 30-year history with incontinence and with products to help with incontinence.  After my youngest son was born, I agreed to have the surgery where everything is hoisted up.  It never occurred to me…nor was I warned…that it could all fall back down again.  And, it did.  After that, wearing protection became a part of my daily wardrobe routine.  Running out of protection is just not an option in my world.  I do not want to be embarrassed again and I am a proponent on my blog of confident-style.  You cannot be confident if you have to worry about leakage or products that lead to leakage.

I am a pretty typical modern over 50 -woman.  I am not sitting home and watching life pass me by (except of course if a pandemic says I have to sit home!).  But, even at home, I still work two jobs, workout, and interact with my family which now includes five grandchild and one more on the way. I do not have the time to worry or waste on poor incontinence protection.

Nexwear asked to send me their products a month ago, and now, I am sold!  This is the product I have really been looking for.



So, for the last month, I have put Nexwear through my own test.  I have done everything wearing their premium pads just to see how it “held up.”   I have done sit-ups (these can be a nightmare at the gym); I have coughed, sneezed, ingested mass quantities of water; worked out with weights, and sat at my computer for hours (which can be very uncomfortable with the wrong product).  The Nexwear pads passed every test.  Absorbency is amazing.  They are so silky and comfortable that for the first time over the many years I have worn product, I forget I have it on. That really surprises me.  I am just not aware it is there…but oh, so glad that it is.  Spring allergy season in Texas gave me many opportunities to test the pads! There has not been one issue with this product.  It is designed to fit well with an hour glass shape that is larger in the places we need it…if you know what I mean.

At the beginning of the quarantine in mid-March, I went to the grocery to get what I needed and, just like toilet paper, the incontinence product aisle was empty…not one package was there. Thank goodness I heard from Nexwear right after and was able to begin their products.  But, it made me think of the advantages of ordering online.  I know that especially for younger women, purchasing the huge, bulky packages at the grocery can be embarrassing.   Most of you know that I taught high school for 16 years, and I have a former student who is a sacker and checker at the grocery.  On those days, when I want to say hello and visit with him, it is embarrassing. 

So, now that I am a new Nexwear customer, I don’t have to worry about the inconvenience or embarrassment any longer.   Another plus with this product is that the packaging is attractive and much smaller.  It is a pleasure to add it to my lingerie drawer and not worry about where to put a huge, bulky package or stack.

The company is also so great with customer service.  There is a rewards program and they want to hear from the customers.  They also have options with a panty and pads.  Even a line for menMake sure for an additional  10%s savings you use the code Pamela 10. This is for readers of this blog!

I guess you can tell that I highly recommend Nexwear.  I want to be the cool, active grandma and the hard-working professional woman as long as possible.  This makes the process enjoyable.  I feel younger. Protected.  Empowered.

  1. Thank you for sharing your story Pam. I remember you talking about this is the past and I listened with interest about the various products. I currently don’t have this going on, but my mom does, and has, and I know we can never say “never” about anything. Before the place she lives starting providing products (she’s on Medicaid), I would buy them for her and I always just knew everyone was thinking they were for me. I would actually explain at the register that they were for my mom. How vain on my part, I know, but I had to start buying online because I just couldn’t do it in a store, unless I dragged my sister with me! You know, it was the same with sanitary products when I was a younger woman, I’d only go to the check-out line that had a young lady or older woman at the register. This was due to an incident in one store where the package did not have a price, and the guy at the register held the box aloft and yelled to another employee, “Can you get me a price check on this?” Can’t help that some things are just embarrassing! The upside to all of this is having something that works, that you can buy comfortably and wear invisibly. I had long-term issues with hearing, started to decline about 15 years ago and I didn’t want hearing aids because they were for “old” people. My kids finally convinced me to get them, and last week I did. It is a complete life-changing experience, and they are all but invisible, very high tech and absolutely no one knows I’m wearing them. Although I’ll say it got to the point where I’d have worn those big clunky ones just to be able to hear better! So there will always be those things that make us feel our advancing ages more acutely, but finding ways to deal with these issues discreetly makes all the difference!

  2. This is a great post and you being so open and honest makes a person feel not so alone. I have good days and stretches of bad days with MS and that was something that was not high on the list of things to tell me. After surgery with a spinal, I was worse than ever and that did not fully resolve, so have been trying different products. I will certainly check out if they ship to Canada and if so, give them a try. Thanks for the honesty.

  3. I had my last child at 42,which was something at the time.I can fully understand your concerns. I opted not to have the surgery when told that it could all fall down. why bother?eventually things turned around and I did not have a problem,for a while. Things are now different. So I am interested in information on all these products. Thanks for sharing. Big adventure today, I am getting a hair cut! Hooray!.

  4. Wow, you are a brave woman! I am impressed. You will help a lot of women with this post today. Thank you.

  5. Thank you….after having a 12lb baby and then spinal surgery recently, I have had this problem more and more. And I hate the way most products feel. Happy to have an honest opinion from you. I know you really do take your “approvals” of products to heart. Thank you, again.

  6. Thank you very much for this information. I have had life long difficulties with this issue. Do they ship to Canada? I would love to give them a try.

  7. I had a bladder suspension over 15 years ago and have not had leakage issues yet and I’m 75. It is good to know of a product that works so well in the event I need them in the future.

  8. This is the kind of “public service” post I appreciate because it comes from someone I trust, & while this isn’t a problem I have — I never wanted or had kids, which I’m sure helped — I’m filing the information where I can find it again should that change (if there’s one thing this pandemic has taught me is how you never really know what’s around the corner!). I’ve passed the recommendation on to my sister & a couple of friends who will be interested. Thank you for your forthright discussion of a difficult topic.

  9. This post has been indeed a public service. I have had this problem every since I had a hysterectomy 20 years ago. My gynecologist(female at that) said at the time that there was no connection. So I am always going to the bathroom at home and put a pad on before I go anywhere. Then I scope out a restroom when I get there! I had to buy a big package of pads this week and had to scope out a cashier that I would be comfortable with. This new product sounds like what I need since this problem is not going away.

  10. I can see using these for hiking, air travel, long walks. Would have liked them after having bladder cancer, while I was ‘potty training’ once again but in my fifties!
