Incontinence Underwear (or Period Panties) Fabric Finder

  • All about Incontinence Underwear Fabrics
  • Top 5 Fabric Choices
  • What is the best fabric combination for incontinence underwear? It's a hard question with multiple answers, but we're here to help you sort through the noise. We have partnered with AKAS Tex, Lycra, CoolMax, Cotton Inc & Silvadur to design & create the best fabrics for making incontinence underwear and period panties. We broke down their construction and provided a list of fabrics for each layer so that finding the best combinations is easier than ever. 

    Incontinence Underwear (or Period Panties) generally have two sections – the shell and the gusset. In regular panties, the gusset is a single layer of a thin fabric like Cotton Jersey. However, for accommodating periods or incontinence, the gusset will need to have features usually present in cloth pads:

    The most popular and comfortable material for the shell is Stretch-FIT Organic Cotton Jersey. There are several other options depending on how light you would like it to be, but any soft fabric with Stretch-FIT will ensure it fits well, has good recovery from stretch and feels great against your skin. 

    As you can see, it's not a question of, "What is the best fabric combination?", but rather, "What are the best fabric combinations and which will work best for me?" It all depends on the design of the underwear and your personal preference. Read more about The Best Fabrics You Can Use To Make Incontinence Underwear & Period Panties in the Wazoodle Doodle Blog for a more in-depth look.

    We do recommend you purchase a swatch first, so you can see and feel the fabric before purchasing a larger quantity for your specific application.
