I Have been using large Attends with Waistbands and thought I would try the newer cloth style. Many have claimed advantages to them. Well I'm a 34-35" waist, and the large are quite big on me, so I ordered the meduims. They hardly fit! They are so small, and I can't see any advantage to them, except the lack of noise. They claim much better absorbantcy than the waistband style, but ya could prove it by me! I'm goin back. see ya!
