Finess Review. A Solution for Stress Urinary Incontinence?

This post is sponsored by Finess. 

Finess ReviewHere at Midlife Boulevard we are always looking for products that offer solutions to problems women our age have.

It’s not sexy to talk about urinary incontinence, but those posts are always very well read. Women may not want to talk about it, but when you have a problem with incontinence, you need a solution that works.

Finess is a product developed by specialists in Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI), and it’s remarkably different from pads. Finess is a small, soft piece of foam you place over your urethral opening. It stays put with a very light adhesive.

Stress Incontinence happens when you leak a little urine when you sneeze, laugh, or lift something heavy. Finess stops leaks by literally blocking your urethral opening.

I have a lot of contact allergies, but I found both the medical-grade foam and adhesive to be no problem. Finess has been cleared for non-prescription use by the FDA. It had extensive testing in a clinical study of more than 350 women using it for more than a combined 30,000 days.

To explain a little about STI and how Finess is different from a pad, here’s a video.

Finess was comfortable to wear, though I read some women do notice it when it’s applied. You would need to remove it each time you use the bathroom, then apply a new one. The website says most women would use about four a day.

You can test Finess for yourself. Their website offers a box of six for $4.99, and a box of 36 for $21.99 with free shipping.

What I like about Finess is that it’s small, discreet, and prevents leakage. The only other incontinence solutions I’ve seen only catch a leak that’s already happened. Also, it’s been highly tested in clinical trials. So many women experience bladder leakage due to childbirth, changing hormones, and weakened pelvic muscles. I like it that urogynecologists are creating solutions for us like Finess. Learn more about Finess and how it works at
