I'm kinda confused... I have been buying Mediums (in everything) because my pant size is a 36".. but when I measure myself my two measurements are 40"Wst 41"Hip. Now I know this is a top medium / low large on the manufactures "scales" but I noticed that a lot of companies who have these sizing charts have a weight category along with size... If I go with just the sizing of the waist/hip I'm medium maybe large.. but if I factor my weight (190lbs) I'm in the large .. Any advice? I've tried google-ing "proper diaper size" etc.. but I can't really find anything that helps me, and I don't want to spend the money to have the wrong size show up and leak, or not fit right etc. etc..
Anyone else who has a waist/hip of ~40" with ~5'10" hight clocking in at around 190lbs and has tried both medium and large?
I know some people will say "get what fits best" but I don't know, I think the mediums work (sometimes I get leaks and the padding doesn't seem to come up as high on some brands) and before I spend ~$40with shipping on a new pack I want to find out what my brothers and sisters of the diaper community have done.
Thanks for the info.
