Hello! So a day or two ago, after a good five or so years of wanting them, I recently got my very first package of Bambino Belissimos. This being my first ever "grade A *B/DL" Diaper, I was pretty excited, but at the same time, pretty skeptical.
Being a person that is so used to her Depends, and remembering how you have to wet them in a certain way and a certain amount to prevent them from leaking, my mind was having a hard time believe how amazing these diapers were based on what I was told. So being the little mythbuster I was, I decided to put them to the test.
It was last night when I decided to tape myself into my first sample, and I was already taken back at how amazing the padding was; not only was it soft and comfortable, but it was thick! I struggled to try and look like a normal person when I was walking around.
Later that night I drank about two cups of orange juice, two water bottles, and one big cup of Pepsi. Being the paranoid person that I am, I was afraid I was gonna overdo it, and end up leaking my diaper. But amazingly to my surprise, after soaking it (whilist sitting down, too) not only did it absorb it all flawlessly, but it seemed that it was hardly even filled to its maximum capacity!
So over the night I ended up soaking it another two or so times before it finally began to feel full. Needless to say, I was super impressed with this diaper, its expectations blew me away. The only small complaint I had, and it might even be just me doing it wrong, is that over time as my diaper began to bulk up and feel heavy it also sort of felt like it was loosening its grip on me, and the diaper felt like it was trying to slip off. But other than that, this is definitely a diaper I know I will be coming back to!
Edit: Confound it, I could have sworn I posted this in the diaper thread... sorry about that :I
