Thread: Diaper brands and advice.

  1. #1

    Default Diaper brands and advice.

    I'm looking for the best brand / style of diaper. I live in the UK so I won't have access to US diapers.

    I previously tried the Tena Protective Underwear Discreet, but I'm wondering what you all recommend. I'm thinking of buying a pack of Tena slip's or flex's. They're both available from Welldricks pharmacy and I'm pretty sure Lloyds, which is what I'd want.

    I'm looking for a discreet one, that has a good absorb feature and doesn't leak that much. Preferably a pull up style one but I'm willing to try an actual diaper, I just like the ease of pull ups.

    I also need some advice/help. I still live with my parents, and I like to wear diapers. They're comfy, and I guess I have a little fetish for them. As well as wetting myself.

    I need help with telling my parents that I like to wear them, as I'd like to be less secretive about it. I have to wait till they go out to dispose of them, I can't just simply have them in my room etc.

    How could I tell them? I'd obviously be buying them myself, I just need to tell them. xx

    Guessing you are looking at something you can pick up from a pharmacy rather than order online. The higher absorbency Tena Slips are pretty good, they are available from Lloyds, at least in the Leeds area anyway.

    In terms of telling your parents, the approach probably depends on how accepting you think they will be. You could go down the route of saying you need them ocassionally for incontinence. You could go a step further and explain you like them for confort and that you like wearing them. Either way you don't want them to react badly, causing you problems, or making them worry about you!

    Go for Maxi if you like thick! More absorbent and firmer fitting. However, if you want discreet go for the Plus, easy to conceal. The latest versions are cloth backed but you do sometimes find old stock of the plastic backed ones. The flex fasten with a breathable elasticatted wing, not as fond myself although a 'little' I looked after really liked them. If you can go mail order then you have more options

    I'd be wearing them out and about, doing my daily life. Night time too maybe. And thank you! I plan to gradually pee so it doesn't get soaked instantly, letting the absorb do its job.

    What's the super like? I may buy Maxi but I don't want it to be too obvious.

    Super, plus, maxi or ultima?
    Thickest to thinnest to : Plus > Super > Maxi > Ultima
    Plus: Very thin and discreet. Though it will probably only hold for 1-2 wettings.
    Super: I haven't tried Super so much but I'd say its double that of Plus.
    Maxi: Probably double that of Super.
    Ultima: A little bit thicker than Maxi.

    And have you personally used them? How are they?
    I have pretty much only used only Tena Slip so I'll give you my thoughts.
    Tena is a very well fitted, high quality diaper.
    I don't really know how to explain this but in comparison to a few other diapers, especially to Abena Abri-form
    the Tena Slip has a sharper cut with more leg room which allows for a better, higher fit so that the diaper goes above your thigh rather than on your thigh.

    One negative thing is that the plastic on the Active Fit is very thin which allows for tiny droplets to seep through when the diaper is full.
    The thin plastic can rip if one massages the diaper a little bit too vigorously.

    But Tena Slip Active Fit is still my favorite diaper.

    Plastic backed?
    The old Tena Slip were plastic backed. The new Tena Slip is not.
    However Tena has released Tena Slip Active Fit which is plastic backed.

    How discreet are they?
    All diapers when dry will fit under jeans.
    Plus and Super are very thin and perfect to wear at work or out and about.
    Maxi and Ultima is more for home/night use but a good pair of pants will still easily hide these as well
    but probably not for more than one wetting.

    Active Fit will crinkle a bit but it's mostly only audible when there is little ambient noise.

    What's the difference between the Flex and Slip?
    Slip is a standard tape diaper.
    Flex is a belted diaper

    Tena Pants or Slip?
    While the pants are very soft and easy to use they have a little bulk to them even when dry and when wet will start to sag.
    The pants will also leak more easily since they sit very loosely.
    So I'd argue that a slip plus or super is much more discreet than any pants.
    But since the pants are sold with just 10 diapers per bag you can just buy one and try them out.
