So, since I have been more active on ADISC, I noticed most people here seem to be pretty content with their Adult Diapers. I have tried them in the past and didn't like them, so I have stuck with baby diapers and toddler pull-ups. Well, I figured I'd give adult diapers another shot, so I ordered a pack of 40 Walgreens Certainty Medium online. I received them today, and after wearing a couple, have come to some conclusions.
They are absorbent. Much more than I'm used to.
They seem pretty leak proof.
They are easy to put on and adjust.
Plenty of room for my manhood.
They just have a "medical" feel to them. Wearing them I feel like I need to reach for the Geritol and grab a walker. I feel like a nursing home patient counting down his days. I think this is the main mental block I can't get past with adult diapers.
They ride up too high. They bother the skin where they rub near my belly button when I move around. Forget hiding them under pants or underwear. They are also noisy - I'm not going to be able to wear these around people.
They feel too "loose". I'm used to the tight feeling of a Pampers or Pull-Ups, and prefer where they ride.
They are so massive. A used one takes up about as much space as three used Cruisers.
I don't care for the 4 fastening tape idea.
The smell - wet and dry - downright stinks. Mixing it with the smell of powder is almost worse.
Overall, I'm going to stick with baby diapers once these are gone. I figured I might as well give adult diapers another try, but I just can't stand how high they ride up and how they fit. I'm in a Cruiser right now, and it is SOOO much better!!
