I bought the Tena Comfort Pants because I thought they would give added protection when wearing pads. However, this product is very disappointing..It is a very thin cloth that can get runs in the material just like nylon stockings and it obviously is not strong enough to hold pads all day long. I use them at night with my cloth pads that I have had made for me. It works ok for that. However, The pants would never replace proper fitting underwear that has built in padding inside the crotch area. If a person needs proper protection they need to order proper underwear made for that purpose.. Actually I have no idea why they were made and would appreciate learning the logical reasons for them..There must be a good explanation for them but I have no clue what it is.
