Check out these ten tips to boost your self-confidence as you age and details on the Always Discreet product launch in New York City.
I didn’t always exude the self-confidence I possess today. In fact as an adolescent and young adult, I did everything in my power to blend in with the crowd in order to avoid drawing attention to myself. This lack of confidence and poor body image was due to the fact I was extremely overweight and never felt beautiful. Even after losing 170 pounds, one would think my self-esteem would’ve sky rocketed, but it didn’t. I had to work on it, I had to work on boosting my self-esteem for years and I continue to work on it to this day. I know I am not alone in this struggle; I’ve received many messages and emails from readers asking for advice on this exact subject. I’ve wanted to share tips and tricks I use to aid me in this venture for awhile now. After attending the Always Discreet Boutique product launch in New York City, I realized now was the perfect time to share those tips!
Bladder Leak Statistics
Did you know?
- 1 in 3 women experience bladder leaks1
- 2 in 3 women who have tried bladder leak underwear avoid wearing them all together, even when they know they need them2
- 88% of women say they would be more likely to wear bladder leak underwear if it looked and felt like regular underwear2

The Always Discreet Boutique product launch at the Penthouse 45 in New York City was such a fun, empowering and extremely informative evening. Statistics reveal bladder leakage is something many of us women deal with on a regular basis, especially us moms! I can remember the first time after having children when I was caught in that awkward bladder leak moment after sneezing and not being able to control my bladder. It was extremely embarrassing and something I never really spoke about, not even to my husband! Along with the isolation I felt when dealing with bladder leakage, there was also the lack of feminine products out there. I am still in the prime of my life, I still wanted to dress up and look & feel beautiful but wearing a diaper-like product did not fit into those plans! Always Discreet Boutique is on a mission to shift the perception of the bladder leak protection category through the creation of the beautifully designed product that offers maximum protection. The best part about it is that it can conveniently be found at any local CVS, so there’s no problem being able to pick it up any time at a place so close to home! And, as a special incentive for my readers, CVS has an awesome promotion going on; buy $20 in Always Discreet products and get $5 ExtraBucks! Also, you can find an addition $2 off coupon in most newspapers – so now you really have no excuse!!
There shouldn’t be a tradeoff between bladder leak protection and feminine underwear that makes women feel beautiful and confident. Amen to that! Just because many of us women need to wear bladder leak underwear doesn’t mean we shouldn’t feel beautiful. Always Discreet Boutique is giving us our confidence back in the most amazing way. The product was designed with the input from real women who were frustrated with the current bladder leak underwear on the market. I remember after I attended the event I headed to my local CVS to pick up a few of my must-have beauty accessories and was SO happy to see this product on shelves. Not only is the product beautifully designed, the display in store was super cute!
Always Discreet Boutique is bladder leak underwear that looks flirty and fashionable, with stylish attention paid to every detail, including its beautiful and sleek packaging. Made with silky-soft fabric and curve-hugging contours that come in a rosé color with delicate lace prints, the design is inspired by fashion industry and pantone trends, with a flowery pattern that goes from the front to the back on one side. Worked on by lingerie experts and fashion designers, Always Discreet Boutique is panty drawer-worthy underwear that can be paired with a favorite bra with pride.
On top of the beautiful, new design, Always Discreet Boutique also offers incredible-performing protection. Hidden inside is a super-absorbent core with unique RapidDry™ technology that absorbs leaks in seconds, OdorLock technology that helps neutralize odors instantly and continuously, and Absorbent Gel Material (AGM) that helps lock the fluid deep within the core and away from the body.
Ten Tips Which Help Boost Self-Confidence
Dress for Success – When you dress nicely and present yourself well, you feel good about yourself! This doesn’t mean go out and buy the most expensive outfit but find a style which suits your figure and look presentable. I’ve always felt that loving your outfit starts from the undergarments up – what you have on underneath your favorite jeans is just as important! This is why I was so excited to learn about the new Always Discreet, because every piece of clothing you wear can affect how you feel about yourself! Don’t just take my word for it, head over to your local CVS store, the best one-stop-shop for everything health and beauty, to get your hands on a pair today!
Think Positively – Clear your mind of negative thoughts. I know this can sometimes be difficult but it can be achieved. Push the negativity out of your mind and you will be amazed at how this changes your way of thinking.
Pamper Yourself – You will be amazed what a fresh cut and color does to my self-esteem. Sometimes it’s the smallest things that will make the biggest difference. Try heading to your local CVS and picking up a new fierce red lip and bright eye shadow!
Give Compliments – Truth be told, I feel better about myself when giving compliments than receiving them. Try it, give someone else a compliment today and see the results.
Stand Tall – Slouching is so not attractive. Stand tall and have good posture, presenting yourself well will boost the way you feel about yourself!
Educate Yourself – Never stop learning and trying to improve yourself. When I began the journey to boost my self-confidence, the first thing I did was read up on tips to do so and I continue to read up on the subject today!
Smile – If you meet me and there is not a smile on my face, something is definitely wrong. I walk into a room with a smile, I greet others with a smile and I have learned that smiling is contagious. Smile and others will smile back.
Set Goals – I believe self-improvement is one of the biggest confidence boosters around. If there is something in your life you are not happy with or want to achieve, then set a goal and set out to achieve that goal.
Surround Yourself With Positive People – Surrounding myself with positivity and encouraging individuals is a lesson I learned early in life. Life is too short to be bogged down with negativity and negative people and it will most definitely affect the way you feel. Find your tribe and have that tribe include those who lift you up and you will keep on flying.
Be Grateful – If there is one thing I have never lacked in life, it is how grateful I am. While being grateful is a very humbling activity, it is also extremely rewarding. Count your blessings and you will be rewarded.
