UnderWunder was founded in 2008 when the creator, Marije van der Vegte, could not find any trendy and well-fitting incontinence underwear for her daughter. A long search in shops and on the Internet did not yield any results. Fashionable incontinence underwear, in which her daughter felt safe, and that classmates did not ask about while she was getting changed for gym class, was just not available. So she decided to develop special underwear herself.
The result is hip underwear with a special absorptive crotch panel sewn in for extra protection, right where it's needed. An accident can, therefore, be disguised and absorbed, so the wearer no longer has to worry about it. At the same time, it is not possible to identify this underwear as special incontinence underwear from the outside. This means that there are no problems when dressing in front of others, such as getting changed to do sport.
The uniqueness of the product quickly took care of the demand from all age categories. From children who are not yet toilet-trained to adults who suffer from urinary incontinence or stress incontinence. People who may be incontinent according to the medical definition, but who do not necessarily feel that way. And who do not wish to be reminded of their problem by wearing standard (disposable) nappy-like underpants.
There are many more people than you may think who suffer from urinary incontinence.
Therefore, we now offer a complete line for boys, girls as well as men and women. Anyone with this unpleasant problem still wants to feel safe and confident, right?
In 2014, UnderWunder was acquired by Urifoon B.V., a family business since 1954, that specialises in solving urinary problems at night and during the day (see www.urifoon.com). The UnderWunder range is complementary to their other products and therefore, a great addition for Urifoon. For UnderWunder it is the chance to grow faster (internationally) and to help even more people.
