Thread: Should a diaper rise above your pants?

  1. #1

    Default Should a diaper rise above your pants?

    Im in a size gap in between medium and large (38 inch waist) and i ussaly get mediums that are a good inch or two below my belly button and fits perfectly with were my pants are keeping everything concealed. The issue is I keep reading and seeing online that a diaper is supposed to rise up to your belly button, but for public wearing and discreetness that seems illogical as the diaper would be easily identifiable if your shirt were to ever rise up. So my question is should a diaper rise up to your belly button or should the waistband be concealed under your pants?

    while discreetness is well and good if you have a mud slide going north sometimes you appreciate that extra waistband hanging out keeping it all in is appreciated from keeping a bad kind of leak from happening. Way I see its a lot harder to hide a bm stain on your shirt then a diaper waistband.

    And then you could wear a onesie and not have a worry to worry about.
    But then a large diaper may still have a revealing outline above the low waist line.
    If the onesie is a dark color not to worry about the bm stain.
    An alternative to a onesie is a tunic type shirt that you do not tuck in and if you bend over it still has enough length to keep things under diaper wraps.
    On another note if wearing a dress same effect as a tunic - the hem length being of prime importance here. A skirt does not work well.

    The high rise really doesn't help against leaks while standing. Tall back helps with capacity while laying on your back, tall front helps (marginally) with leaks while laying down. I've seen a diaper leak out the top on a few occasions though while sitting due to the rise in the front being too low.

    Yes for sure a diaper should be just below your belly button while modern pants ride a lot lower.

    Looks cute seeing an inch or more of diaper out of the top of pants in my opinion.

    To be discrete though and if you are only trying to absorb a small amount of moisture guard thingies are available for that... Not cute though.

    Tall front does help with leaks if you're standing and pointing upwards. Especially if you're able to press the diaper to your stomach a little, it won't leak out the top if it's high over the penis. Tall front can also help if one is partially aroused and pees. I agree it can help with sitting and that high back helps when peeing pointing downwards and lying down.

    I'm medium/large (34" last I checked) and my experience has been that it varies wildly. Abena M3s are my usual brand and they come up well above my pants, while ABU Simple Medium are far lower on me. Personally, I prefer them to come up above my pants because if they're fitting perfectly into my pants, on my body that usually means that they're folded in a way that will make them less functional.

    everyone's frame is different. What I find important is the total length from end to end. And there is no standard. Most mediums are under 30" long, but not all. for example, Attends with waistband medium are 34" long. and that can make a big difference in how they fit. Ultimately, I end up going large because it is the only way to get a good fit around the waist. I think that yes, the fit should be high over the hips. Even with large, the padding still starts well below the waist so this does not affect the way clothes fit over the diaper. but it adds to security that my diaper will not sag.

    Yes, I prefer the diaper to rise above my pants. It it easier to give it pull to snug it up, and I like it to show if my shirt rides up.
