You don´t have to be ashamed of it.

You don´t have to be ashamed of it.

No need to be embarrassed

I have been using Swaens underwear for three years now. A real solution for me. There is one word I say to friends: 'safe'. Yes, these Swaens make me feel safe. And they are gorgeous too.

I am not secretive about that. Although I know not everyone is open about it. Is urine leakage a taboo? On Google, I read that one in four adults experiences urine leakage. So there is absolutely nothing to be ashamed of. Why should I be? Shame is part and parcel of feeling guilty. And I don't.

About 7 per cent suffer from incontinence on a daily basis, I read. I am not part of that 7 per cent now. Not any more, but after the birth of the our second child, I started losing urine. According to the midwife, the cause was the long pushing which caused the nerves to become weak and stretched. I didn't like those panty liners. After a lot of practice, the leakage became less and no longer daily. Really nice.

However, when I had to sneeze or laugh - and I like to do the latter - I sometimes wet myself. Very annoying. And when I do strenuous things, it also bothers me. I like to play tennis. Then I use the Swaens boxers. They don't leak through.

Now that I'm going through the menopause, I suffer slightly more from urine leakage again. That's why I now wear the Swaens to be on the safe side. It seems like an advertising pitch by now, but I am very happy with the Swaens boxers.
