The absorbent material, which I can't call padding, in ProCare briefs is very stiff and hard, resulting in a poor and uncomfortable fit between the legs. Further, and maybe even worse, the absorbent material is cut on its ends by a heat method, leaving hard, sharp melted edges on the front and back ends. In the back, that end can and does turn inward, sometimes even cutting through the thin layer holding it in place. It has caused injury to my skin, right in an area very sensitive if you have good sensation, and very prone to skin breakdown if your sensation is poor. In an individual with intact sensation but only able to wriggle away from the pain, the sharp edge can cause more damage and pain. Incontinence mixed with skin damage is a recipe for infection. Who would ever have thought a review of incontinence underwear would include the words "stiff," "hard," "sharp," and "painful?" This is a very disappointing "Made in America" product.
