They're expensive because it's not easy to create underwear that is discreet, absorbent, and not demoralizing to wear.
Okay, I'm seeing the issue now. You're taking what people say literally and more specifically.

To me flowery underwear means something extra special and therefor more expensive. To you it means a plain pair of underwear that has been printed with flowers.

And I don't think elan's comparison of the price of children's compared to the expensive women's meant literally that she was suggesting that adults should wear them.

You've just got a really down-to-earth mindset.

"Hopping into bed with diapers" and "sexually active" just don't seem to belong in the same sentence. My brain isn't doing well with that one.

That's what the absorbent bed pads are for. LOL Or, "Sweetheart, I'll meet you in the shower."

Who said they wanted dog and cat prints on theirs? That's funny . Couldn't find the post.

What if you could customize them with your favorite photo? Or you could have rock band .motifs? Black Sabbath disposable drawers. They need to be more creative! Military branch insignia. NFL teams. Zodiac signs. There might be a market for this! We could get rich! Who's in?

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.
I'm not laughing. I wore them for a couple of months after an accident. I painfully struggled to rise from upholstered furniture and, worst of all, bed. I couldn't always make it to the bathroom in time.

I agree , I had a read about just how many people have this issue and its staggering... more should be done to help for people who suffer..

Not its a very serious matter and not funny one bit.... more should be done to help these people instead of causing perhaps embarrassment and money..

It's because men are developing them - all you need to do to sell to women is make it pink and add flowers As with anything (not incontinence stuff that I hope I don't ever need) I'd rather it work well at what it's intended rather than look "cute".

Maybe when you do need them, you might decide that "cute" is an option. And who says cute doesn't work well?

It's a shame that so many people worry about how others spend their money. If they can afford it, why would it matter to anyone else what they cost?

Looking at those who spend thousands of dollars on a "designer purse" because of the way it looks, it's not something I would ever do but for those with the funds to do so, why not?

For men who buy expensive sports cars because they're flashy, it isn't my money being spent.

Maybe the complaint should be how much medications cost. I had cataract surgery and needed three different eye drops. One of them cost $193.00; the other two were over a hundred dollars each. Nothing cute about that and still they were expensive.

If a woman wants to preserve her femininity for as long as she can and it costs her a few cents more to do so, I say have at it.

You do realize that the incontinence underwear in the link are reusable rather than disposable right?
