Urinary incontinence is the unintentional passing of urine. It's a common problem thought to affect millions of people. There are several types of urinary incontinence, including: stress incontinence – when urine leaks out at times when your bladder is under pressure; for example, when you cough or laugh.


Endometrosis is a condition resulting from the appearance of endometrial tissue outside the uterus and causing pelvic pain, especially associated with menstruation.

Bladder weakness

Stress incontinence is usually the result of the weakening of or damage to the muscles used to prevent urination, such as the pelvic floor muscles and the urethral sphincter. Urge incontinence is usually the result of overactivity of the detrusor muscles, which control the bladder.

Jude's Leak-proof pants - what are they?

The idea behind Jude underwear is simple. We wanted to create a product that is discreet, comfortable, safe and absorbs small to medium leaks. Oh - and importantly, is also ethical too; because the materials are sourced from sustainable forests and prevent the traditional landfill that pads and liners produce.

I wanted a product that helped women going through bladder weakness and allowed them to get on with their life. We hear all the time how challenging navigating this issue can be day to day. We’ve had brilliant feedback from women in our community who have tried Jude underwear and many have said they don’t even notice they’re wearing them!

The science bit

It might be a bit of a boring topic, but the science behind Jude’s underwear is important! Our brilliant product team have a unique three-layer gusset which is designed specifically for urine. This means leaks can be absorbed in one to three seconds, and the unique waterproof side seams ensure complete reassurance that you are safe and secure when wearing them. At Jude, we know that incontinence is hard enough to manage, without worrying about leaking too. Our underwear is feather-soft against your skin, because we chose TENCEL™. Not only soft, TENCEL™ is sourced from sustainable forests. And finally, our pants couldn't be easier to wash from 40 degrees and a pair is a guaranteed to last at least 60 washes!

Jude underwear saves you money and helps the planet too

We always design our products with sustainability in mind - and wearing our pants will save you a whopping £75, in comparison to pads and liners. And when it comes to landfill - making the switch to Jude Leak-proof pants will reduce 6KG of landfill, compared to using competitor pads. 

So, when would you wear them?

Women in our community who have tried the underwear have found them to be perfect for the gym, yoga, running, going out at night, travel and holidays, big events, weddings, work and basically any occasion when they don’t want to be bothered with changing a liner or a pad. Incontinence doesn’t have to get in the way of you living a full and active life. 

Here’s just a flavour of the feedback around when to wear them:

‘I love the fact that they are so discreet. They don’t show when I have my yoga pants on.’ 

‘I can jump up and down in my bootcamp class and not worry.’ 

‘They’re great for holidays as they save space on packing and don’t have to put in loads of pads or liners.’
