Thread: Buying diapers online

    Last week my four orders of Abri-form M4 X-Plus that I had ordered through Amazon was NOT discreet as it said it would be. It clearly had a huge blue "M" on each side of each box with the content listed on the side of each box for all my neighbors to see.

    Prepaid visa card may be the way to go there.

    Did the item page say 'Shipped by Amazon'? If not, then Amazon simply sends the order to the seller. If the item page did say 'Shipped by Amazon', I'm surprised it came marked like that.

    Why don't you just buy them cash in the local supermarket or drugstore? That seems to me to be the easiest solution - unless, of course, you want a particular brand that they don't have.

    Tranquility has a label on the box ,a small one but bright yellow it used to be white , My UPS guy knows exactly what he is delivering , but is very cool guy ,he even knows my aides hours and will carry them in for me, because I can't lift a case if he gets here too late he brings them in for me instead of putting a wall of diapers in front of my door.

    Amazon will ship in their own box for smaller things because this allows them to standard pack their trucks. It's impossible to pack a truck with retail shelf packaged products. Larger things are not kept in their warehouses and are "drop-shipped" directly from their source's warehouse, so it will be in regular manufacturer's packaging. Which for most diapers, does list the contents. Discrete shipping of Abena products requires several layers of packing tape over a large amount of markings, or as most ABDL places do, take the bags out of the box, split and invert the box, retape it, repack. That's why "discrete shipping" usually costs an additional $5 or so, someone's gotta flip the box at the warehouse.

    Once you flip the box or tape it over, it (obviously) becomes harder to identify and so they have to keep a little better eye on it before it goes out the door. We've all seen people complain about getting the wrong kind of diapers due to a shipping mistake. This is one factor that makes it more likely.

    I recently got a case of MyDiaper Blue, and it came from across the pond. It was sign-for-delivery, so I had to go pick it up and sign for it at the post office. They'd placed a SINGLE layer of cheap thin mostly-transparent brown tape over ONE of the TWO "MyDiaper" labels on the box. And yes I had paid the $2.50 or so for "discrete packaging". Was NOT a happy camper over that.

    All the supermarkets near me or any of the stores I've been to for that matter only sell the ones such as Depend, Always Discreet, store brand generics, etc...I want to experience wearing a real diaper that doesn't leak as easy as the store bought ones. I have bought from the store but they always leak.

    Yeah. This is the answer, IMO. Back when I was in a mode of vigorously hiding it (which went on for about 13 years until some of my items were discovered), I would periodically buy prepaid VISA cards from the supermarket along with my groceries, thereby hiding my online diaper expenses. It works well, as long as you moderate your spending a bit.

    Thanks for posting this. I had the same questions as I am also wanting to try a real Adult diaper. I have been disappointed with Depends Briefs and other generic brands. The CVS brand is good but it doesn't have shields. Thanks to the help on this side I think I will try the Confydry 24/7 first. After reading through this thread I will first look to XP Medical for ordering and shipping. I must have discrete shipping. Only my wife knows and I have a loaded house of 6 young adults.

    I will say that I told my then girlfriend about my DL tendencies I think to see if it scared her off. She is a very compassionate person and we have now been married for almost 27 years. I wish you luck and I completely understand you need to keep it secret as I feel the same. My wife has been there for me through the years and is a hobby psychologist so we have had many conversations about coping and so on. She is not interested in DL or AB but is accepting. she is a keeper!!

    Better check on the shipping before you order some people recently have gotten marked boxes from XP Medical !
