I haven't bothered to look. I do know that Zyrtec from a chain pharmacy costs quite a bit more than the Equate brand from Walmart. I suspect that the trim underwear with flowers or prints is being introduced by the leading (name brand) manufacturers first and cost more than the puffy, white, discount ones.

Well, I've got news for you: mild to severe incontinence is a pretty wide-spread problem that unfortunately does not get the attention it deserves from either the medical profession or the market for products like the one that has weirdly offended your sensibilities.
So true. I have read that there are more adult diapers sold than ones for children.

Here's a very lovely pair that are three for $40+

No one is saying that they aren't expensive. I would expect incontinence underwear to be more expensive than regular underwear. Just questioning the assertion that "companies [are] raking in the money for sticking a flower on a pair of incontenance pants" I haven't seen any evidence of flowered varieties being more expensive than their unadorned counterparts.

Geeze, you can get a whole case of kid's pull ups for that much.

What adult would want to wear anything as bulky as a kid's pull up?

They're expensive because it's not easy to create underwear that is discreet, absorbent, and not demoralizing to wear.

Well, maybe so, but my nephew's pull ups are pretty darn thin. It's amazing how much better disposable diapers are now.

No one sees my underwear but me, but I can't bring myself to wear white "granny panty" briefs. I like pretty underwear; it makes me feel nice. So if I ever get to the point where I need incontinence undies, I'd probably like a flower on them, and frankly, since no one else sees it, it's none of their business, right?

Okay (she said, sighing, anticipating the jokes) hereís what I use:

https://www.amazon.com/Depend-Silhou...orr&ref=sr_1_7

They donít show under yoga pants and they are reasonable at about $1.08/each on average if you shop around. Three colors (beige, black and purple) to a box.

Note this is the moderate absorbency. Maximum absorbency will show under yoga pants.

I do like the more feminine styles people have linked to and will try some of those.

Still not something an active adult would relish wearing.

They should have to suggest that a woman go see her doctor about surgery to correct the problem before settling for incontinence undies.
