For use in swimming and hydrotherapy pools.

Washing Instructions: Product can be washed at a maximum of 40°C using a very small amount of detergent. To dry product, dab dry with a dry towel and then leave to air. DO NOT tumble dry. Product may stain.
The garment is designed to be worn next-to-skin under a swim suit. It is intended for bowel containment, however it will protect a certain amount against urinary leakage. It's difficult to determine just how long because each person has different needs. Tests showed it would easily contain several cups of water, but if you are uncertain as to how long it will contain urine, please try it at home first. It is important to purchase the right size, and keep it as snug as possible using the adjustable closures.
Although it was made specifically for swimming, many customers claim it makes a great cover for disposable or cloth diapers.
The garment is Unisex. Please order by waist or hip, whichever is larger. For example, if a person has a 34" waist and a 38" hip, they should order the XL which has a range of 37"-40", even if the waist is much smaller than 37". If your measurements are at the higher end of a size range, don't assume you should go to a larger size. These garments are very adjustable and stretchy, and should fit very snug.
The youth size is similar to the adult, except cut slightly shorter through the rise. This simply means that a Youth style will sit lower on the waistline. For children with waist sizes less than 30", you may wish to order a children's style depending on the height of your child.

The difference in these styles is the rise (crotch depth), which dictates how high the garment sits at the waistline. Measure the rise, (see instructions below) and then choose which style is closest to your measurement. Youth styles are similar to adult, but with a slightly shorter rise. They are intended for young adults, teens, or adults with shorter stature.
For Teens and Children with waist/hip measurement less than 30”, review the Youth vs. Child Style chart at the bottom of this page to decide which is best.
To Measure Rise, begin about 1 inch below the belly button, measure down through legs, and up to the position on the back that matches the starting position on the front. Then, based on the larger of waist/hip measurement, choose the style that comes closest to your own rise measurement. If you have any questions, call or email us.
Here is a chart to compare Adult and Youth, sizes X-Small to X-Large only. Waist/Hip size ranges are identical. Only the total rise measurement differs. In the example below, a Medium Youth garment has a rise 3½” less than a Medium Adult. The Youth would therefore sit just 1¾” inches (half of 3½”) lower on the waistline than the Adult style.
Waist/Hip (Adult & Youth)
Waist/Hip (Adult ONLY)
41" - 44"
45" - 48"
49" - 52"
53" - 58"
For Children and Youth with Waist/Hip measurement between 22”-30” there is a choice between a Youth Style or Child Style. The Child Style sits on the natural waistline of a child with normal growth patterns. For example, if a child is very slim and tall, you probably want a Youth to get the highest rise. Measure their rise, and choose the style that is closest.
These garments are known by other names, such as swim nappies, undergarments for swimming, and Special Needs swim diapers.
