Poise Microliners
I’m a positive person by nature, and I love to laugh. It’s always been that way. My Mom got notes home from school saying what a happy and good-natured child I was. That continued straight through to present time, with the exception of my high school years where laughter was often overshadowed by bullying.
After getting married I found myself working in computer sales, in a large call center. You know the kind – giant room with lots of aisles full of cubbies. I used to sit by a guy named Gary. He actually requested to have his seat moved because of me. He told the supervisor “I can’t bear to constantly have to listen to someone so damned cheerful”. I kid you not. I laughed when I heard him say it and I laughed even harder when they moved him over near the bathroom.
A few years later I had my first child. If you have children, then you know how much entertainment they can provide. I found myself laughing as much or more then ever. You have to. They’re cute. They’re funny. They don’t know how to reason yet. They don’t understand the laws of the universe (such as sound carries).
TJ was born in November. I did a lot of smiling during his first few months. Then, as his personality started coming out I’d find myself laughing. We had some company over once. We were trying a new food and he made just THE funniest face. It was so funny I found myself howling and was almost doubled over in laughter holding my stomach. Until I wasn’t laughing anymore and I found myself having the urge to put my hands in front of my privates. No poise whatsoever. I had laughed so hard that I leaked a little. I was terrified that it was going to come through my clothes. That was my first experience with light bladder leakage.
I didn’t like being nervous about laughing. When I called my OB and asked him about it he told me it was very common. (I’ve since learned that one in three women has light bladder leakage, by the way.) What was I to do. I hated the thought of not being able to laugh as much and as often as I wanted. I didn’t really need yet another reason to use those giant mattress-like things I kept in my bathroom for that time of the month. What I would have given to come across someone that could save me from the concept of not laughing, because that just wouldn’t be me. What I would have given to meet SAM back then.
I met SAM recently. SAM is a member of the Poise family. He’s the star of the new Poise Microliner. These are the thinnest microliners available today, and they are perfect for anyone who deals with light bladder leakage. SAM stands for super absorbent material. SAM is so discreet that noone knows he’s there.
Poise Microliners
SAM weighs almost nothing and is ridiculously thin. I’m not kidding about the thin, he’s about the thickness of some toilet paper! Look!

I wish SAM had been available years go. He and I would have become best buds immediately!

Thank gawd, no. There are a few ladies in my zumba class that leak when they jump, though – and are very loud about groaning when songs with jumps come on.

Liz Mays May 22, 2014 - 6:02 pm

I haven’t had it with laughter yet, just on the trampoline. There’s nothing you can do on a trampoline to stop it!

Bekki May 22, 2014 - 6:26 pm

Glad they have come out with this product. I have had trouble for 30 years and wearing big bulky pads is just YUCK!

Debbie Denny May 22, 2014 - 6:33 pm

I do know a few with this problem. These sound very good product.

Lindsey @ Redhead Baby Mama May 22, 2014 - 7:03 pm

wow – that’s SUPER small. It would be perfect for someone with this issue – it’s more prevalent than I would have though.

Mitch May 22, 2014 - 7:16 pm

Looks like a great product! I need the male version though!

Mickey May 22, 2014 - 7:33 pm

I love to laugh too, so I’m very thankful laughing doesn’t cause any problems for me. Yet. 🙂

Krystyn @ Really, Are You Serious? May 22, 2014 - 7:37 pm

I shall answer by saying this: I have four kids!
My midwife did tell me to do ab exercises to help..but, I haven’t started yet!

Amy D May 22, 2014 - 8:11 pm

I love that they are super thin and very discreet; yet absorbent!!

MommaDJane May 22, 2014 - 9:05 pm

I haven’t had the issue with laughter. Although after having three kids I wouldn’t be surprised if it becomes an issue soon enough.

Jaime May 22, 2014 - 9:14 pm

I had issues while I was pregnant, but not as much after my son was born. I’m sure if I have more children, this will be a different story.

Shell May 22, 2014 - 10:03 pm

It’s more with sneezing. Or jumping on a trampoline(my boys always ask me to). The SAM commercial cracks me up.

Beth@FrugalFroggie May 22, 2014 - 10:22 pm

I don’t think I have laughed and peed. But I do think I have sneezed and peed. Good stuff.

Felicia May 22, 2014 - 10:30 pm

Things definitely changed for me when I had kids. Thank you for sharing this.

Amanda Her May 22, 2014 - 10:48 pm

I usually use a regular liner, but would love to try the Poise ones. I’m gonna sign up for the free sample.

April @ Everyday Fitness and Nutrition May 23, 2014 - 8:00 am

I’m so glad there is a solution to this problem. So many women suffer from it.

pat. May 23, 2014 - 8:28 am

Not if I laugh, more like if I cough.

StacieinAtlanta May 23, 2014 - 9:24 am

It is nice to see a product that addresses what is an embarrassing and frustrating thing for so many. Anything that makes life a little easier is a win in my book.

krystalskitsch May 23, 2014 - 9:37 am

Thanks for sharing information about this product! I just visited their website to learn more.

Jenn May 23, 2014 - 9:38 am

That’s pretty thin! Thinks are definitely not the same in that department since giving birth twice.

Tiffany @DaydreamingRealist May 23, 2014 - 10:46 am

Thin, portable and has a quiet wrapper~I’m a fan of these, too. I wear them everyday just because I wait too long to get in the bathroom (especially, when I’m out and about).

Carly Bellard May 23, 2014 - 11:44 am

It is an unfortunate postpartum problem, isn’t it! Love that there is a product to save us from further embarrassment!

Rosey May 23, 2014 - 12:10 pm

Not yet, but if my mom and gram (ha, they’d not want me to post that on the Internet) are any indication, my time’s a coming. 🙂 Thank you for the review!

Kayla @ TheEclecticElement May 23, 2014 - 12:52 pm

Having a positive, outgoing attitude towards life is fantastic! I definitely recommend that to everyone as well as laughing a lot and it sounds like you’ve already got that down 🙂 While I don’t leak when I laugh I do tend to leak when my bladder is on the full side and I get up to go somewhere.

Autumn May 23, 2014 - 2:03 pm

No, at least not yet. I hear it’s very common for women, though. As if we didn’t have enough laundry as-is!

Theresa May 23, 2014 - 3:11 pm

Thankfully, not yet, but my mom does. I can’t believe how thins those are. I bet you don’t even notice you are wearing them!

Dina May 23, 2014 - 3:24 pm

I did until I cut out all artificial sweeteners. Then this problem went away!

Ashley M May 23, 2014 - 3:41 pm

I can totally relate! Pregnancy did such a number.

melinda May 23, 2014 - 3:43 pm

my friend is going through the leaks. unfortunately hers are caused by medical conditions but these would be helpful

Jessica (Savory Experiments) May 23, 2014 - 7:37 pm

“Too cheerful” is not a bad problem to have!

Veronica May 24, 2014 - 12:03 am

This looks like a great product. Seems that the do what they say

Dawn May 24, 2014 - 10:07 am

I hate that so many women have to deal with this. At least there are great products to make it easier, though.

Cara May 24, 2014 - 10:47 pm

I hate this! I just ordered my sample and can’t wait to try these!

Christie May 26, 2014 - 8:54 am

No bladder leakage here, but I bet it’s coming soon! Keep doing those Kegels, LOL

Tracey May 26, 2014 - 8:59 am

Thank goodness this is not an issue for me. It’s great that there are products out there though to help with this issue.

Joanna Sormunen May 26, 2014 - 1:05 pm

Great information and it’s so good that this is not such a stigma anymore! Thank you for sharing this!
