How Much Liquid Can a Normal Bladder Hold?

Answer

A normal adult bladder should be able to hold up to 16 ounces of fluid. This is 2 cups of urine still held comfortable. By the time the urge to urinate becomes unbearable there is likely more than that in there. The bladder has nerves that tell you when it's time to empty. These nerve sensations get stronger the more the bladder fills. The bladder is a muscular sac. If any of those muscles weaken or are injured, involuntary leakage could become a problem.
