The Confidence Connection: What you WEAR Impacts how you FEEL!

That go-to, power suit that boosts your confidence, that empowering black dress that makes you feel like you can conquer the world, or the cozy, comfy PJs that signal well deserved relaxation and “me time”... every layer of clothing we put on impacts our mood and our attitude.

The Confidence Connection. According to 1, a popular wellbeing website and magazine, a single item of clothing, or a whole outfit, can change how you feel about yourself. “And, when you’re holding your head higher, you appear brighter, and the people around you will likely notice your change in attitude, too. Not because of what you’re wearing (though a compliment never hurts), but because you’re glowing from the inside out.” 1 Interestingly, this powerful feeling has a lot to do with comfort. Studies have shown that clothing comfort affects your cognitive - or “brain”- performance. 2 Uncomfortable clothing is associated with distraction, that can cause you to lose your focus, and topple your confidence. 2

At some point, we’ve all had to make fashion choices: form or function? Works hard or looks great? For women a prime example is high heels - sure they look fantastic but - ouch - not so comfortable. For the men out there, the oversized sports-themed rain poncho protects you at the bus stop, but it’s certainly not a fashion statement (sorry guys!). This goes for incontinence products as well.

Until now, many who suffer from incontinence most likely chose function over form - reliable, trusted protection over stylish color, fabric and fit.

Well, those days are over. With TENA® Stylish Underwear for women and TENA MEN Protective Underwear for men, you’ll look at incontinence protection in a whole new way!


  • Stylish underwear with the protection of TENA. In black and other feminine designs!
  • Discreet absorbent underwear made from a unique cottony-soft stretch fabric that creates a body-hugging fit.
  • Soft, elastic waistband

And Men - we have you covered too!

  • Designed to look and feel like regular underwear
  • Anatomically designed just for men with strong adhesive strips and a superabsorbent, Dry Fast Core™

No more choosing security over style. Keeping that confidence up in the “new normal” can be tricky. With many of us working remotely, home-schooling and video-conferencing our way through the day, the designer suits and trendy outfits have not seen as much daylight as years past. Due to the quarantine, we aren’t necessarily “dressing to impress” and many of us miss that element of style.

If you can start your day with stylish underwear that helps protect you from leaks and odor while feeling sleek and comfortable... you’ve created that first layer of confidence and it can only help boost your mood throughout the day.
