Alright, so I'm currently trying to order a pair of plastic pants right now but I'm having a few problems:
1. How do you measure crotch width? All I can find out on google is it's the space between your legs. Easy. Problem is every time I measure I get a number that's way too small. From what I can tell I should be ending up with a width of about 10-12 inches but I'm getting a width of 7 inches. Then again I think the measurement is supposed to include cloth diapers, but would they really add three inches to the width? I've tried measuring over an abena x-plus and the difference in measurement is maybe an inch at best.
2. When buying plastic pants and you're stuck between sizes should you opt for the larger or smaller size? Reason I ask is that I have a waist of about 30" and leg thickness of about 21" (and apparently a crotch width of 7"...) and there's two sizes that match that: the site's small has a waist that stretches from 22-40", leg goes from 16-23", and crotch width of 11". The medium is 24-44" waist, 17-25" leg, and 12" crotch width. Normally I'd just go with the larger size but I've heard that with plastic pants it can be better to go with the smaller size in order to reduce the risk of leaks.
3. Are there any drawbacks/advantages to using snap-on vs. pull-on plastic panties? I'm probably going to buy a pair of snap-ons but I'm wondering if there's a greater risk of leaks with those or if snaps on those things have a tendency to pop off.
