Absorption – The Tranquility Slimline Breathable Brief is tested using the C.U.P. testing method. This method is basically testing the product exactly how the body does – it is tested Capacity Under Pressure. The product is tested using pressure, just like what happens in your body. The soaking test most companies use does not give you an accurate idea what the product will do upon release of fluid. The Peach Mat Core wicks away any fluid away from the skin and into the center core. The quickness of this neutralizes the pH of the urine and promotes odor control. The wetness indicators will let you know when the product is reaching capacity and needs to be changed.
Fit – This product is a slim fit. There is no padding at the sides in the hip area. This gives you a more discreet fit under your clothes. There is no added, extra padding at the hip. The cloth-like outer layer prevents the rustling sound that the plastic backing can make. You can obtain a snug fit with this product with the tabs at the waist and leg openings. You want a snug fit, not tight or loose, in order to prevent leakage.
Odor Reduction – The Peach Mat core is the key to odor reduction in this product. The core quickly wicks the fluids into the core, neutralizing the pH of the urine. This eliminates any chance of air borne odor. With the fluid retained in the core, it eliminates any tell-tale odors.
Additional Products – The Tranquility brand is one of the highest capacity products available. Some people feel a little more secure with the use of a cover-up. They can help if there could be any leakage. If using this product at night, many add booster pads for additional capacity.

Top 5 Questions About The Tranquility Slimline Breathable Brief
- I like the lack of padding at the hip. Can I use this product for overnight use?
You can try the product to see if it has a high enough capacity for your overnight usage. If not, you can add booster pads. This can add 8 fluid ounces (or more) to your capacity. If not, then you will need to go to a higher capacity product.
- Why would I want to use a brief with tabs over a pullup style?
A brief with tabs gives you the ability to make adjustments to the fit of the product. You can get a snug fit at the waist and leg openings with the tabs. While the pullup style is great because it is like your normal underwear, you do not have the ability to adjust the size of the waist and leg openings. Diapers with tabs also allow you to change without taking off your clothes.
- I have very thin legs, which would be better for me, the pull on style or briefs with tabs?
The briefs with tabs would be the best choice. They allow you to get a better, snug fit at the openings. With incontinence products, fit is the key to leakage control. If the product does not fit you properly, you will experience leakage.
- I like the idea of less bulk for daytime use, can I use these during the day and another type during the night?
You can change brands and types of product as you need to in order to obtain comfort and feel secure. Just as you change your shoes to be correct for what you are doing, you can do the same with incontinence products. Perhaps you only need a pad during the day, but at night you are beyond a pad’s capacity. You can mix and match product as the need arises.
- During the heat of the summer, my skin develops a rash, what can I do?
The Tranquility Slimline with Breathable sides is designed just for this type of problem. If the skin cannot breath, bacteria grows and will cause problems. The breathable sides allow for an air flow to keep you skin healthy and irritant free. You can also add a skin cream to help.
