INNOVO pelvic floor shorts review

Last Updated:  

Did you know 1 out of 3 women experience incontinence? Yep, I said it. It can feel a little embarrassing but what can be more empowering for us women to actually have the chance to control this issue. Are you feeling the same? You are not alone because after all, leaks are generally brought on by everyday things like laughing, sneezing, etc.

This article will explain a bit about how you can strengthen your pelvic and how this awesome brand I recently found and partnered with - INNOVO - has truly helped me along the way to eliminate leaks without any side effects.

I will share my honest INNOVO review so you can make your own decision if you want to invest in INNOVO’s leak-free shorts and get back to living your normal life.

What can cause urinary leakage?

There are common misconceptions surrounding urinary leakage, and these make it difficult for both men and women to understand the issue and therefore find an effective solution.

So, let’s start with the basics. Firstly, it is crucial to understand that there is no such thing as a “weak bladder.” When we say, “weak bladder” what we really mean is a “weak pelvic floor.” And no – this is nothing to be ashamed of. 

There are many changes that take place throughout a woman’s lifetime that can affect the pelvic area, such as pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause. Essentially, there is an inability for the pelvic floor muscles to withstand pressure within this area and this can lead to urinary leakage. 

I know that within the running community, there are very healthy, fit, and sporty women who are also impacted by this issue. Not all of them may share it publicly, and I definitely don’t blame them for that as it is a sensitive issue, but the numbers don’t lie.

11,350 women finished the NYC Marathon on Sunday, November 7th and I’m sure many of them are unfortunately dealing with the same issues of having a weak pelvic floor (remember, 1 out of 3 women experience incontinence).

How do the INNOVO shorts work?

It’s so easy: For example, I can be doing important self-care work while relaxing on the couch after work with my dog Cooper. In only 30 minutes, up to 5 times a week, I am doing 180 perfect Kegels.

It feels good to feel good, and I’m super appreciative of my partnership with INNOVO and its leak-free shorts. Simply put – INNOVO is FDA-cleared, non-invasive and clinically proven to eliminate leaks without any side effects.

All in all, it was great to train for the NYC Marathon with peace of mind knowing that INNOVO is here for me. Running, like other physical activities, can cause leaks – and it is important to be prepared for the unexpected to keep up with the intensity of training. 

So, at this point, you may be asking… what does it actually *feel* like to wear INNOVO’s shorts? Well, I’m glad you asked :). With an effective pelvic floor contraction, you will feel a sensation of “squeezing,” “tightening” and/or “lifting up” between your legs when wearing them. That said, you should feel little to no activity on the front and sides of the legs.

For example, I have been doing my 30 minutes of INNOVO on the couch while watching TV with Cooper. No problem whatsoever… It really is that easy.

How much does INNOVO cost?

The INNOVO shorts aren’t cheap, but think about how much you may spend each month on pads or liners. INNOVO is a one-time cost that eliminates your leaks for good.

The retail price for the device is $449.95 and it is HSA/FSA eligible. There is no greater investment than the investment in yourself and let’s face it, we should all be making pelvic floor health a priority. 

So, sure, while the price point isn’t low, the INNOVO shorts are absolutely worth it. Oh and by the way – if the price tag might be a turn-off for you, I have two pieces of good news: INNOVO partnered with financial lender service Affirm, which allows you to make monthly payments for the shorts for as low as $41 per month. 

You can easily order online at and the INNOVO Kit is discreetly shipped to your doorstep. No prescription is needed or doctor visits are required.
