Apologies if a similar topic has been made already in the past, but I couldn't find one myself.
Alright, this is something I was thinking about on the bus way home back in November.
How do we define a fitting diaper? I'm mainly focusing on baby diapers now, as I've yet to try adult ones.
It sure must be different from person to person, but I'm curious about your opinions.
I've been reading the reviews on the bigger baby diapers such as Cruisers 7, and gone through some discussions about them, and that's what made me think.
I haven't tried the Cruisers 7 myself, so I wouldn't know if they would fit me, but here's the deal:
I have about a 32' waist, definitely not larger, and I can "fit" and wear Active fit size 5.
What I mean by "fit" here, is that I can wear these diapers, use the tapes and wear them for some time without them ripping open. Note that it's not for a very long time that I can wear them, they rip easily. (I bought them to try and now I use them as stuffers/boosters.)
I must pre-stretch the diapers and the tape only reaches the very end of the front tabs. I CAN reach the tape panel if I really push it, but then they break even faster.
Size wise, it's enough to cover both front and back.
Though it doesn't even come close to the other diapers I use, I don't count it as "fitting" that way. And I have yet to experience diapers in which I can tape to the tape panel. (save for pull ups as I've been trying DryNights.)
Fitting for me would be that I can tape the sides to the tape panel and that the diaper wouldn't be too tight.
See my point? Does this even count as "fitting"? Or is there a general definition to it?
What defines a fitting diaper for you?
