Thread: Drop your pants!!!!

    Cool Drop your pants!!!!



    Ok. I admit my true thoughts about Depends in this video.

    Maybe I held back in the past.

    I sometime wonder if depends understands anything at all about marketing and producing adult incontinence garments, as they can't seem to manage to do one thing right or in the instances they have by accident they "fix" it.

    I kind of like their marketing. The problem is their products are useless.

    As an incontinent person, I tried their male pullups, bot the fit flex and the real fit and honestly I can't understand who is actually supposed to use them. Anyone who is incontinent but to such a minor extent that depends pullups work for them is damn lucky in my view. Anything more than a small squirt and they leak. I have urge incontinence and an accident can be fairly low volume ( 3-4 oz) all the way up to losing nearly a full bladder. It depends (no pun indended) how how bad the spasm is and how full my bladder is at the time. I had a very bad public accident that prompted me to switch to diapers and it was when I was wearing depends. I had to walk through the mall with soaked pants.

    yeah I agree a had to learn the hard way.

    It's too bad because with their name recognition (Depends = Adult Diapers to most people in the US) combined with the gaping hole in the domestic market for actual quality adult diapers, Depends could totally dominate.

    I still buy real fit underwear sometimes because I can get away with them some days especially when I'm not venturing too far from a toilet. When my incon first started I was mortified to buy these in a store. Now I really don't care about buying this stuff. I only order my good diapers online because it's the only place to get them. If depends made a diaper that compared to Abena or Dry 24/7 and sold it at the local Walgreen's I'd be all over it. Seems like they're just passing on a glaring opportunity if you ask me.

    I dont think they care that they are "passing on a glaring opportunity" honestly, especially judging by their review comments from the recent backlash they have recieved for changing their maximum protection fitted briefs as they call them. They actually believe that those brawny paper towels with velcro tabs are useable as diapers when in reality they are probably the worst diaper money can buy, additionally they make a whole lot more money with the sub par product off people who dont know there are better products out there so while I use 3 premium diapers a day at 6-7 dollars a day people that buy depends may use close to an entire package a day so in their minds consumers would have to buy less of a quality product albeit a more expensive product therefore cutting into their profit margins. Sorry if this dont make much sense, every time I get a clear thought in my head I get distracted by someone else!

    The funny part is they have fallen behind prevail and their generic clones in every way.

    Their marketing is pretty funny to me; but totally missing their target demographic of the elderly and disabled for the most part. Who are they trying to appeal to? Teens and people my age?

    Fun reaction to that by the way XD

    MY theory is they know that audience is already bound to something and they are hoping to get younger people before catheter people try to get them, so they are trying to make their product look like it's for younger people. Also while they have never outright said it, hard not to notice how their old product had waistbands that were colored not unlike pampers.... and now their new briefs have stars on them, so one has to wonder.
