In the past I've worn Depends for Men and GoodNites for boys.
Not long ago I decided to order online and try Abena Abri-Form S4. The Abenas have been quite alright I would say, they hold a fair amount of pee, they fit well and they are comfortable.
However, they have absolutely little odor containment. People say Depends are bad diapers and whatnot, at least from what I've often heard on here - however, having tried Depends I can definitely say that even though Depends may be bad overall, they certainly have a very good odor protection/containment capability. Whereas with Depend I don't ever recall smelling my own pee when I wet my diaper, with the Abena I start getting this scent/waft of my own pee and/or pee combined with the abnea diaper material - whether I wear clothes or just my diaper.
Now I am just afraid that other people will notice too and I also don't want to wear diapers anymore because I am afraid that (if it hasn't already) then the smell of pee will get onto my clothes so that my clothes will start smelling in this same way if I keep doing this long enough.
My questions are then:
- Is it just me, or do others among you who wear or have worn Abena abri-form diapers notice that these are not good at containing the smell once the diaper is wet?
- Is there a way to contain the smell of a diaper? Anything specific/special to do or use?
- From your experience could you recommend other classic/traditional brief (or not I suppose) style diaper that may potentially be as good as the Abri-form AND doesn't let the smell out onto my clothes and my surroundings?
again the abri-form are pretty good in my opinion overall...but the lack of odor containment is the simple factor that would immediately make me not wear them anymore - if I can smell them wet then others around me will be able to as well. And also, don't want the smell to get onto my clothes permanently.
