I have neurogenic bladder so I never know whats going on if I need a wee or if I can ignore the signals so I wear slips to bed just so I can sleep more than 5 minutes!
Id found an alternative brand of slip that didn't leak ut what I hadn't realised was that I must have been waking slightly to move in to a position laying on my back to "let go" (i think the other brand would have leaked if laying on my side). With these slips, the fit it incredible due to the elasticated sides. The slip sits really snug against the body. The other thing this means is that you don't feel the cold/wet sensation in the morning. When I wake up now, I literally cannot tell if I'm dry or wet. Ive been incontinent for about 10 years now, I suppose you could argue the security could make the problem worse but Im sleeping much better as a result, no worries or wetting laying on my side and no damp feeling. Pretty much life changing. I don't suppose I'm going to ever be without protection at night now anyway. Only thing I don't like is the purple colour on the maxi. Lol, bad enough wearing a nappy, don't want girly colours too.
