For those of us who attempt to wear diapers which don't quite fit (like baby diapers), sides tearing apart seems to be the biggest problem, since they're the weakest part of the structure.
Anyone have any particular thoughts on how best to strengthen the sides to keep them from coming apart? I don't mean like making extenders, I'm just wondering about adding things kind of on top. A few things I've tried or trhought about...
* Staples -- they're very strong, obviously, but they're so thin that all the stretching tension gets redirected and focused into too small an area, making it likely that staples will start their own little rips. Also, they're kind of unsightly. ;P
* Glue (krazy glue in particular) -- effective, but kinda awkward to apply to diapers... I wind up getting things I don't want stuck to other things when trying to hold parts together while it dries.
* Tape -- aside from possible unslightliness, Scotch tape breaks too easily. Duct tape looks terrible. :P I haven't really tried packing tape.
* Sewing -- haven't tried this, but seems like it might be helpful to add a few stitches here and there. Problem there is it's slightly time consuming, I guess. And I'm terrible at sewing!
