This is a first review of the Pampers Underjams I'm trying. I think I'll give more updates as I'll try them more.
It's been a long time I've heard of Underjams (either positive or negative reviews) but I never got the opportunity to try them. I wear almost everyday Drynites / Goodnites (all kinds : L/XL, S/M boys & girls) and I'm happy with them but I'm open to new products
I had no other choice to choose the S/M girl version which was the only ones available at that moment in stores (the L/XL size seems to never be available here in France).
It's a 10-pack so I didn't care that much if they didn't fit at all. But considering I sometimes wear the S/M version of Goodnites, that was certainly ok.
I weigh 47kg (103 lbs), have a 29 waist (I mostly wear 28 trousers), and a rather "small one" and it's an euphemism (sorry about the details, but it does matter when trying a diaper).
The first impression when unpacking them: they smell the same as Drynites / Goodnites and the outside is as soft. As for Goodnites, 2 designs are offered in a pack : one with an overall white design, and the other one with a pink design. Both are cute
I picked the white design and I then tried to put one carefully on me so that it doesn't rip. It seemed all okay when it was on with no near risk of ripping.
One thing I really liked right off the bat is that they have a very low waist band when compared to Goodnites : they DO look like pants, there are no angles on how they are cut. I'm very surprised about it, and I'm sure that even the L/XL version is not much bigger.
It feels even a bit strange for me, as I'm used to have my butt totally covered by the absorbing part of the diaper.
So they are really discreet (no noise as well), even more than the Goodnites, and it's something important to me. Even when bending there's virtually no risk to be "caught".
On the inside part, it feels very comfortable, either dry or wet. When wet, it actually doesn't feel wet. The diaper bulks a bit more than Goodnites but nothing to worry much about concerning discretion, and that even feels nice between the legs
They surprisingly don't feel very small on me, although the L/XL size would of course fit me a bit better.
So far I've been pretty pleased about the absorbency. I've tried two of them, and they didn't leak after having worn them during 4 / 5 hours without going to pee on the toilets. The key thing is that due to my small bladder I have a slow flow and no big accidents.
Tomorrow will be the first day wearing them in "real life" : going outside longer with them, pulling them up and down from time to time when I go to the toilets, walking, going upstairs, … well living!
I'll be careful to check on a regular basis that they are not about to leak or to rip and I'll keep you posted!
