CONNI Containment Swim Shorts are specifically designed to stop faecal matter from entering the water. The fabric used is impermeable, meaning that nothing will pass through it. It behaves similarly to a wetsuit that divers use except it is a lot softer, thinner and has more stretch. For further protection, there are built-in vacuum seals around the inside leg openings designed using a unique strip of fabric which gently attaches to the skin when wet. There are toggles at the waist and legs to adjust the fit. The shorts should be worn with the waist and legs pulled tight but comfortable.
CONNI Containment Swim Shorts will also stop urine from immediately entering the water. If there is a lot of movement urine will eventually escape through the top of the waist, however, urine doesn’t pose the same risks as faeces.
There is an inbuilt brief designed to capture any solids (faeces) but in all instances, it is recommended for the wearer to remove themselves from the water immediately after any bodily event described. It is advised to seek a toilet or shower to remove the swim short and wash the garment down before re-entering the water. The garment can be re-worn when it is wet.
Disposable pads are not recommended to be worn with swim shorts.
