Mrp! This is my big debut here, I guess! :tailswish:
Pup has been trying to search existing posts but thinks "CVS" is too short a keyword and causing much fail. Pup would like to pick up some CVS "Men's Underwear Super Plus Absorbency" and CVS "Day & Night Adjustable Underwear" [or "Day & Night Fitted Briefs Maximum Absorbency"?] tomorrow but has size concerns.
Pup also notes that the wiki entry for "CVS day/night briefs" (pup cannot link, too new) does not indicate which model was reviewed!
So if anyone can help a pup, here are pup's dimensions:
42" waist, based on jeans in that size now falling off without a belt. Yet a tape measure around the hips where he'd expect to be thinner - under the belly :P - seems to say more like 44"-45". Is trying to work his way back to a 38" waist but it takes time.
Pup's inventory, purchased 3 years ago and all worn this week, demonstrate his size concerns:
White-package CVS "Overnight Absorbency Protective Underwear" pull-up in Large is a faintly loose-to-perfect fit (if not very absorbent!).
White-package CVS "Super Plus" pull-up in Large is ridiculously baggy and too-big on him (but more absorbent so less leaky despite extreme looseness around the legs!).
Pup is now in some Tena Serenity pull-ups, Large, also from that time, and the fit is also pretty good, more snug than the discontinued CVS "Overnight", snug around the legs and a little loose at the waist.
Edit with a note of caution, a day later: Despite otherwise being sunshine and lollipops and chewbones, pup was noticing the Tenas fit narrow between the legs, much like regular BVDs, to the extent that bits of pup's groin - pup is not sure how to say this nicely or scientifically as he thinks the inguinal pad ends higher than the area he means, so basically the sides of the base of the-part-of-pup-that-holds-two-things - sort of hung over the edges. With a fit like tighty-whities, they contained as much, and pup's legs' did runneth over. Pup now thinks he remembers being tricked many times by those when he was thinner, despite them being very absorbent when he was 'lucky' with them - it may be that the pulp just can't wick fast enough to the gel when it's dry - and now they're quite old besides. Pup may have to do something crazy like premoisten one with a few shots from a squirt-gun and see if that sets up a channel for faster wicking.
Pup notes that, in fact, it may be useful to him or others to chart the claimed fit / claimed sizing for each of these:
- Discontinued CVS Overnight Brief, Large: 44" - 54" hips
- Discontinued CVS Super Plus Disposable Brief, Large: 44" - 58" hips
- Tena Serenity Large, c. 2007: 37" - 50" waist
Any insight or suggestions will make pup wag! Especially anyone much skinnier finding a CVS "Medium" too small would tell pup to buy the Large. But since pup has noticed so much difference between products, please tell pup exactly which product it is!
(Pup also knows to definitely get booster pads!)
