The link to the article below was written mostly for specialty nurses, but it has lots of ideas that can be grabbed and used. Reminder: this article was written for people in the US. We know that the situation on reimbursement and insurance is different in the US than most other countries.

Hi i'd always go washables over throw aways anytime far better for night use as can adjust padding/absorbencies to your requirements unlike disposables
Ive had some made to my size i bulk up as need to so can sleep/lie in bed without the worry of leakage!
Team with a pair of likes of Gary pant pvc pants high back comfort elastic as elastics sewn on edge often breakaway and soak through while comfort are covered.
Also have Polyurethane ones and many other types like Rubber plus Snap type for daytime use.
I use an underpad every night. SOmetimes it's dirty. sometimes not./
