Girl supplies. We all have ours. It's interesting to think how they change with age... From Bonne Bell lip balms (Sugar Plum was always a personal favourite) to roll on body glitter (ah, the 90's...) to black liner (lots of it) to concealer, the perfect neutral blush, and eye cream. The constant evolution. Of course, there are always 'other' supplies. The ones not as often chatted about, but never the less essential to our well being and confidence.Today we're going to be chatting up one of such items, specifically, the Poise Impressa Bladder Supports.
Poise Impressa Bladder Supports are an ingenious little product that can aid in managing stress urinary incontinence (SUI). SUI is a common condition, wherein the bladder leaks a bit when under stress caused by everyday occurrences like coughing, sneezing, laughing, or even exercise that can cause bladder leaks. One in four Canadian women will, at some point in their lives, deal with urinary incontinence with half of those suffering from SUI. While it's not something you particularly want, it's not the end of the world. It's just another woman thing (yipee!) and as women are particularly excellent at doing, you buck up and make things work. Unfortunately though, SUI can still take its toll on confidence and a sense of freedom. If you're constantly worried about a leak, it can make you feel limited to what you can do or where you can go.
Poise is playing a big part of making it work, and have changed the game pretty substantially with their Impressa Bladder Supports. Until now, women haven't had a whole lot of options when dealing with leaks, as absorbent pads, briefs, or invasive surgery were really the only options. Boo to that. The new Poise Impressa Bladder Supports give an easy option, as they not only discretely but also comfortably help stop leaks, thus restoring a sense of freedom and confidence. In short, no leaks = happy you.
The Poise Impressa Bladder Supports look like tampons, but aren't designed to absorb leaks. Oh, no. Instead, they full on stop leaks in the first place. The bladder support is inserted into the vagina like a tampon, but works by placing pressure on the urethra help stop urine from leaking out. The bladder supports are available in three sizes, which are not only determined by the amount of leakage experienced or one’s height or weight, instead, it is simply every woman’s unique body design. To find the perfect fit for your body, Pose has an Impressa Bladder Support Sizing Kit. It includes two of each size supports, so you can try them all and get a feel for what works for you. Once you find your right size, simply insert it and forget about it. Easy and effective!
As you may have noticed, this is part one, meaning I will have a follow up post. About what? Good question. A proper review. While I don't have SUI myself, I do know ore than four woman, and that bunch does include a few who deal with it. They'll be trying the bladder supports and giving me their thoughts. In the mean time, the Poise Bladder Supports Sizing Kit is available at mass retailers and drugstores across Canada for $9.99. What do you think? Could you or anyone you know benefit from this product?
