Imagine what it would be like if there weren’t dressing rooms to try on clothes before you bought them. What if someone brought you clothes home that you were to wear on a daily basis without you having the chance to try them on to see if they fit to your liking? We all know that one size doesn’t fit all.
I talk with families every day who need to order diapers, underwear, and other supplies. I have noticed there are a number of catchall terms for incontinence products. The obvious ones, of course, are “diapers” and “pull-ups”. Someone might request a “diaper” they could depend on; while someone else might actually mean they want the brand-name, "Depend", which is made by Kimberly-Clark! Even more frequently, I have observed that some people use “Depends” as a generic term for any adult incontinence product, be it pull-on underwear or briefs (with tab fasteners).
