Giving the gift of confidence this Mother’s Day #underwareness #sp
Saturday, April 18, 2015
If you would have asked me just one year ago what I was going to give my Mom for Mother’s Day, I would have said flowers, or a new outfit. Or maybe the whole family would surprise her with a special brunch because she just loves it when all her kids and grand kids are together. But we won’t suggest a brunch this year, or try to pick out a nice outfit, because for the last year or so, Mom has been struggling with bladder leakage.
It is nothing to be ashamed of we say- but she is ashamed just the same. So this year, I’m giving her a box of Depend Silhouette Active fit briefs and I’m hoping they will give her the bladder leakage protection she needs so she’ll regain her confidence and independence.
I don’t want my Mom to feel she is alone anymore in her struggle to find a product that offers her discreet protection. Gone are the days where she needs to feel ashamed by a bulky pad, which may or may not protect her as she moves. She’s moving less and less these days, when she should be out there enjoying her retirement! Bladder leakage isn’t about your age or stage in life and it’s time we all tried to help break down the stigma associated with this condition.
Here are some truths on Bladder Leakage according to Depend you may not be aware of:
These truths mean my Mom needs to stop thinking this is a curse of getting old and try these Depend briefs so she can get busy living the life she always dreamed of after retiring!
About Depend Silhouette Active Briefs:
Depend is a trusted name in bladder leakage products so you can expect the same level of quality in their new Active Silhouette briefs. Made to fit smooth under clothes and sit just below the waist, these briefs offer moderate absorbency to trap and lock in odor.
Active Silhouette thin design briefs come in beige and black and are made of a cotton like fabric that looks and feels more like regular briefs than any other I’ve researched for my Mom. She’ll be able to wear her Capri’s and dresses with confidence now.
Join the Movement:
I’m glad I joined the #Underwareness social movement and charitable cause on behalf of my Mom and all women who suffer with bladder leakage. You can join too.
The Depend brand is encouraging people to show their support for this important cause by going to Underwareness.com and joining the Underwareness movement by sharing a photo or video using #Underwareness and featuring Depend products. Depend will donate $1, up to $3 million through 2016 to fun charities that advance the research and education of bladder leakage.

It is my sincere hope that this Mother’s Day gift, while unique, may help my Mom regain her confidence and be able to get back out there and by this time next year, we won’t have to wonder if a brunch date would be ill advised.
