Tranquility TopLiner Contour Booster Pad Review

Booster pads like the Tranquility TopLiner Contour aren't designed to be used alone, but rather to increase the capacity of a primary incontinence product, such as adult brief-style diapers and/or disposable pull-on underwear. The TopLiner is designed to fill to capacity before transferring the liquid to the primary protective garment. It fits well inside adult diapers and is easy to remove.

Breaking it down

Performance

Extends the capacity of any diaper. While the Tranquility TopLiner Contour Booster Pad is strictly a supplementary means of protection against incontinence, it's effective in increasing the capacity of a primary diaper so that even those with the heaviest incontinence can get through the night or day without needing a change. Two sizes are available, with the largest able to absorb up to 28 ounces before liquids begin being transferred to the primary diaper. Users are generally pleased with the additional absorbency these incontinence booster pads provide.

Ease of use

Extra absorbency in a hassle-free package. Users describe the TopLiner Contour as easy to put on and dispose of, although a small minority criticize the pad's fit inside briefs. IncontinentSupport.org gives the Tranquility Topliner Contour a recommendation, saying the pad fits better within the primary diaper than other booster pads and provide as much boost as double diapering, but with less hassle.

Odor absorption

Little feedback, but a little boost couldn't hurt. The Tranquility Topliner Contour Booster Pad is designed to boost the absorbency of a primary disposable brief or undergarment, thus preventing skin irritation and controlling odor. The pad does not appear to contain any components meant specifically for odor neutralization, but its essential function should, in theory, inhibit the diffusion of unwanted smells. However, no reviews mention anything about the Tranquility Topliner's ability to absorb odors, which may point to its effectiveness in that area.
