Get Back To Living With Finess

Let’s take a few minutes to talk about stress incontinence and how it affects your confidence. I can tell you without a shadow of a doubt that it has affected mine. I went from being a normal, 30 something woman with a bladder that was not perfect but stressed to a 30 something-year-old woman with full blown stress incontinence thanks to birthing 5 children.


What is stress incontinence? Stress incontinence is when you unintentionally lose urine, thanks to things like, coughing, sneezing, running or heavy lifting. The reason this happens is because, over time, the muscles of the pelvic floor get weak. So, anything that exerts a force on the pelvic muscles can put pressure on the bladder causing leakage. If you are like me, a mom, then you know that childbirth is a sure-fire way to weaken the pelvic floor and it can happen after labor, or years later. Other factors include illness, obesity, smoking, hormone deficiency and excess consumption of alcohol.

There are plenty of treatments on the market, but I want to introduce you to something new and innovative if you are like me and suffer from mild to moderate stress incontinence- the Finess Softpatch. The Finess Softpatch is a first of its kind product that was created for women with mild to moderate stress urinary incontinence.

You place Finess over the urethral opening and a hydrogel adhesive seals it in place until it’s removed. When pressure is placed on the bladder from a sneeze, laugh or a cough, Finess prevents urine from escaping. Finess was proven to be safe in a clinical study that evaluated 346 women over a 90-day study period.

No more bulky, soggy, smelly, thick absorbent pads. No more diapers. No more embarrassment, no more stress. Just back to living.

Finess retails $10.99 for the 12 pack or $21.99 for the 36-pack at havefiness.com or Amazon.com

    These are products I have never seen before. Very interesting actually. I don’t have an issue with this but many do so it’s good to see people are talking about incontinence.

    I have two kids and I know what you are talking about muscles getting weak down there. I do muscular exercises to strengthen my pelvic area. But someone who cant control.. this can be a very useful option.

  • Danik Bates

    Very useful option if people have problems down in that area. Never heard of this as its not known in this part of the world (UK) and its good to see that people are thinking about their incontiennce. 🙂 Great post and thanks for sharing

  • I’ve never experienced this issue just yet but I’ll keep this in mind. I don’t have kids yet but hopefully I wont’ run into this issue when I do!

    What a crazy and useful device. I have never thought about this matter up until now. Guess it’s better to get educated and prepared for whats to come ahead of time. It also reconfirms my desire to never have kids haha.

  • What an interesting device. I have never heard of this product. It’s not one I would try, but I know a lot of women that might be interested. I can only image.
