Wearever Incontinence Mattress Pad with Wings (not just for seniors) {Review & Giveway}

Babies are incontinent. Toddlers can be incontinent. Sometimes young school age children can be incontinent. Granny and Grandpa can be incontinent. That doesn't mean that all of these are incontinent or that if they are they are incontinent all the time. It is simply a fact of life. Sometimes incontinence happens. It can also happen to that lovely lady or strapping virile young man. It can happen because of illness or surgery. This is the stuff of life and life happens. So when life happens, what do we do about it?

I can remember the little pads placed under babies to protect their bedding. My babies were babies a long time ago. I can remember, too, that we bought plastic "rubber" sheets to go under the bedding (mattress cover and sheet) to protect our mattresses.They worked - at least up to a certain point. If an accident happened, we still had to change the sheets and mattress cover, wipe down the "plastic" sheet, remake the bed, and eventually go back to bed.

Now we have a nice solution. Wearever has products for incontinence that make life so much easier for those dealing with some of the little life issues. They make a number of bed pads that provide an easy solution that is comfortable to use. Today we're looking at their winged bed pad.

Sized large enough to use on a hospital bed, a twin (or bunk) bed, or even can be used for half of a larger bed. The 19" wings will tuck over the sides and a bit under the mattress to help secure it in place.

The pad I received launders nicely, folds compactly for storage, and is priced so that if more than one is needed you can afford it. I am delighted to add this to my linen closet for those occasions that call for a waterproof pad. You never know when that day will come (or little ones will visit who need one).
Product description: The Mattress Pad with Wings surface is soft and comfortable while protecting from wetness. It is complete with large, fabric wings to help secure the pad in place. It is washable and reusable making it far more economical than disposable bed pads used for incontinence.
This is a specially designed, reusable, and washable mattress pad that ensures protection for you or your loved one and the bed! The bed pad is 36 inches by 32 inches with three layers of protection. The 19 inch long wings attached to either side of the bed pad are long enough to tuck under one side of a bed or both (if twin or hospital type bed). The wings tuck under the mattress and prevent the pad from slipping or moving.
 The top layer of the bed pad is made from an 80/20 cotton/polyester blend called IBEX. This top layer is quilted to a top quality, 8 oz poly soaker which holds the moisture. The third, and bottom layer, is the moisture proof layer; it is made from a knitted, vinyl, barrier fabric. The bed pad is finished with double bound edges for a long life of many washings. This amazing mattress pad will hold up to 60 ounces of liquid.

History of "Wearever" - I lived in the Triangle area of North Carolina, near Durham, for over 40 years. I now live a bit distant from the Triangle but still in North Carolina. I was so excited when I discovered that I was given the opportunity to review a "home grown" product! North Carolina is well known for its manufacturing, innovation, discovery, educational institutions, and entrepreneurs. Prime Life Fibers, makers of Wearever, is a prime example of that. The following is from a news promo from 2012 upon their 10th anniversary:
Prime Life Fibers was officially founded in the Triangle area of North Carolina in 2002 under the direction of Bob Deerin. Its history, however, began about 10 years earlier when Bob first started research and development to create a reusable incontinence undergarment that would provide a better solution for Americans. Today, the company continues its philosophy of innovation through ongoing development of new products that address common wellness concerns by offering practical and stylish solutions.
“Not many companies, especially in this economy, get to celebrate 10 prosperous years,” said Deerin, the founder and President of Prime Life Fibers. “Prime Life Fibers is thrilled to reach the one decade mark and without a doubt this success is due to our loyal consumers. We’re honored to thank them with this discount, and we’re looking forward to another 10 years of innovation and product development on their behalf.”
 One of Prime Life Fibers’ most recognized lines, Wearever, and its sister brand Eversures, offer alternatives to adult diapers that are more comfortable, affordable and environmentally friendly. The washable, reusable men’s briefs and women’s panties come in a variety of styles and sizes to meet the needs of active seniors, women who have birthed multiple children and others with health conditions such as prostate cancer or multiple sclerosis that can lead to incontinence. With its innovative Unique-driTM three-layer absorbent fabric, Wearever undergarments help reduce the stress and anxiety caused by incontinence so people can continue their normal lifestyle without worry.
Prime Life Fibers is also the exclusive manufacturer of the Buster Brown® sock line. They are designed for maximum comfort essential for the elderly and anyone with poor circulation, easily irritated skin or diabetes. The 100 percent cotton socks are made without seams, elastics or synthetics to improve comfort and reduce binding. Additionally, the popular loose-top socks feature cushioned foot beds, and moisture-wicking and odor-fighting fabric for optimal all-day wear.

  2. This would be a very nice product to have on hand.
    Interesting review thank you

    1. i think this plaid pad would be especially nice to have on hand if you have a child that still has issues with wetting. Or to throw on the bed when a child (or even teen) gets sick during the night.

  8. This would be useful for someone who is ill also.

  9. I am helping my elderly mom recover from major surgery and found some products at Wearever that would be very helpful. I really liked the specialty socks and plan to purchase some as holiday gifts.

    1. So glad you found these, Maureen. When feet get old they absolutely need to be comfortable and well cared for. That is especially true if circulation or diabetes is an issue.
