Swimwear Advice

Many children and adults enjoy swimming for exercise, fun and therapy. Specialist swimwear and reusable swim nappies can help someone with incontinence issues feel more confident during pool or hydrotherapy sessions. Most families find that as their child gets older, they grow out of the swim nappies you can buy on the high street, making it difficult to go to the pool.

Fledglings supplies a range of incontinence swimwear products which give the wearer more freedom in the pool or on the beach. As an alternative solution to disposable swimming products, they come in a variety of different styles, colours and patterns.

We also offer a selection of Swim Accessories including buoyancy jackets, swim trainers, swimming headbands, and waterproof changing mats .

As with most incontinence swimwear, a good fit is essential to stop leakage. We recommend that you take measurements before buying, as this will help you choose the best size for you. The swimwear needs to be ‘snug' at the waist and the top of the leg. For more information please refer to our Measuring Guide.

Most incontinence swimwear is designed to be washable, but please check with the supplier or manufacturer for the correct washing instructions. As the swimwear has an integral waterproof lining, tumble drying is not recommended. Be aware that as with normal swimwear, the cleaning chemicals used in swimming and hydrotherapy pools can cause fading of fabrics with prolonged use.

Swimwear with an integral waterproof lining

Incontinence swimwear has an integral, waterproof inner pant. Elasticated at the waist and the top of the leg, the inner pant helps contain any accidents while in the water. This integrated pant usually has a polyurethane nylon coating and a silicone seal at the waistband to provide protection and containment for the wearer.

They provide wearers extra protection while looking like normal swimwear. They are also reusable and washable. Depending on the style, the swimwear will provide protection for both more liquid and solid faecal waste.

We offer incontinence swimwear styles for boys, girls, ladies and mens sizes. The Kes-Vir Girls Halterneck Incontinence Swimsuit, the HiLINE Ladies Tankini Swimsuit Top and the HiLINE Ladies Tankini Swimsuit Shorts are popular styles for girls and ladies.

For boys and men, we offer styles such as the Splash About Boys Incontinence Jammers Swim Shorts or the HiLINE Mens Incontinence Swim Shorts. All these swimwear do not require a pad or nappy to be worn underneath them.

Please note: everyday pads and nappies are not suitable for use in the pool as they soon become saturated with water and overly heavy. The gel in the pads may also damage the pool filtration systems.

Swimster pants with waterproof lining

Swimster pants have a waterproof lining which is designed to retain solid bowel movements rather than loose stools. These pants are not as high at the sides as some swimsuits and are often worn under other swimwear. A good fit is essential to prevent unwanted leaks.

Kushies Freestyle Swimmers and Incontinence Swimsters style briefs are unisex and can be worn under other swimwear.

Disposable Swimsters, swimwear, for disabled children.

Disposable Swimsters

Disposable Swimsters are good for occasional use and for holidays - especially if there is no ready access to laundry facilities. Ideal to use under your child’s usual swimwear.

Made from non-woven fabric with waterproof coating and designed to contain solids without adding weight.

Designed for solids only, they can be worn twice if not soiled the first time. Not advised for diarrhoea or loose stools. As they are not padded they are not absorbent nor contain liquid.
