DiaryDoll is a pioneering range of pretty clever pants and the brainchild of TV presenter Carol Smillie. With teenage daughters dealing with their monthly cycle, Carol originally developed the range for young women who might be worried about heavy periods whilst at school, playing sport and sleepovers. They definitely serve a great purpose for this but also stress incontinence (which an estimated 1 in 3 women suffer with), during / post-maternity and SUI, commonly known as  ‘sensitive bladder’, or ‘pelvic floor weakness’ (which is believed to affect approx 9 million women in the UK).

DiaryDolls contain a secret waterproof panel to protect clothing and bedding against any embarrassing leaks* – perfect for periods, pelvic floor weakness, or post maternity.
Just like any other pants in your underwear drawer, they are soft, comfortable and machine washable. They are available in black, white, pink and blue online and in 122 Boots stores across the UK. They sold over 400 pairs in 8 minutes on QVC and are available in Debenhams, John Lewis and pharmacies across the world.

    Diary Dolls underwear are a new product which I have found to be fantastic. I am a size 16-18 and the size 3 knickers fitted perfectly. I suffer from a prolapsed bladder and these have been perfect for when my liners have failed. I have also worn these during my period and again I felt reassured that if I did have any leakage my clothes would be protected and I would feel comfortable. I also found the knickers supportive of my c section overhang so that’s an added bonus. The material is soft and washes well at 40 degrees and dries quickly. The water proof section of the knickers goes all the way from front to back and doesn’t make any sound like some waterproof items would. The outer part of the knickers are a soft viscose and elastane with a cotton inner liner and the waterproof barrier is made out of polyurethane.
    These are ideal knickers to pack in your maternity bag as they cover the tummy too, to use during periods and also for ladies with bladder problems. I would certainly recommend to friends.

    I forgot to add to my earlier post that this underwear is well made and I will be buying more. They are certainly worth the money. I currently have the black pair and can’t wait to purchase more colours and designs.

    The Diary Dolls underwear were quite a surprise for me. I don’t know what I was expecting but they are really lovely and flattering and you can’t tell from looking at them that they are waterproof. The material feels nice and they are really pretty. Unfortunately they didn’t have my size so sent me the size up for the purpose of this review, but they were just too big for me. I would definitely have felt at ease wearing the right size though, especially on my heaviest period days when I am self conscious about leakages.

    I have recently tried out the DiaryDolls underwear and I was actually surprised. I have to be careful about what I wear next to my skin as I can get a rash at the drop of a hat, my initial thought when I unpacked these pants was ‘uh oh, they feel plasticky’ they are in fact really comfortable. They do feel plasticky in the hand but when they are on they feel like really supportive big pants (I love big pants at that time of the month they just feel so much more secure).
    I really put these pants through the ringer, the packaging said it would catch any leaks, so I went on any average mothers worst nightmare. I climbed on my children’s trampoline and for the first time ever, bounced my little heart out. My pelvic floor did as any mum who has carried and birthed children would do, its usual vice-like grip on the bladder slipped slightly. The underwear worked, no embarrassing damp crotch on exiting the trampoline, one very happy mum here. I doubt if the pants would hold their own against larger leaks without backup (pad of your choosing) but they saved my blushes.
    I tried a pair of size 3’s which is 14-16 equivalent which fit my amply sized 16 bottom. The price I think is pretty good, especially as they do work, I will be investing in some more pairs very soon
