I have been into diapers my whole life and been wearing abena M4's regularly for 2 years now, so idk why i dont know the answer to this question.
But... When i put on a diaper is it ok or even better for the bottom tapes to be ontop of the padding?
Just now i repositioned my tapes differently than i usually do so that they were more level and actually ontop of my padding, i noticed this freed my legs up alot, and it seemed to have brought the legs gathers closer/snuger to the back of my thighs, but overall they seemed looser, and way more comfortable. The one problem i had was with the tapes popping off, but being that i've been in my diaper for a few hours already and wet a bit, ontop of me using the white tapes and reapplying them at least 3 or 4 times im assuming this is why they kept coming off.
Typically when i put on a diaper i make sure the bottom tapes arent touching the padding, and essentially are pulling up from between my legs, so that usually my tapes are pointing downward at an angle. It's worked for me all this time but it does restrict my movement and alot of times when i take my diaper off i have a red ring around my leg from the gathers. Am I or have i been doing it wrong?
