I recently wore out in public for the first time(walking around the neighbourhood and goodnites don't count). I put on a tena super and a pair of plastic pants. At first I was a little nervous wondering if people could see my diaper or hear it but eventually I didn't even notice I was wearing it. It was actually pretty comfortable.
I wet at target, the bookstore and after a third wetting, I changed in a bathroom. Also when wearing out in public, it isn't a choice to avoid changing or not wearing a diaper after you've wet because you'll need to stay fresh and don't want your urine soaked bum touching your pants after. Plus trying to pee while wearing a diaper requires taking tabs off and various extra work.
The first time went great but I recently tried it again and I noticed the tena super that I put on didn't seem as large as I recall. I wet once and the diaper felt quite moist but not saggy and heavy like it usually gets. I kept wearing and wet again but it didn't feel saggy and heavy like usual. I went about my business and went to my car.
I sat down in my car and felt moisture move around the diaper and thought nothing of it but that I need to change soon. I then decided to check my backside and noticed a bit of a wet spot by the diaper leg. I figured that's ok and fine.
I drove to another shop and before getting out I checked my backside.... My pants were completely drenched on the backside and my car seat was as well now too. I had two options of either going inside a shop with completely wet pants or ride it out in my car until I get home. I did the latter and shampooed my car after too which was overdue anyways.
Well that sucked and I dunno why that tena super sucked so much or didn't feel right. I think it may've been one of the samples I got from the medical supply shop and it wasn't actually a super or something.
tl;dr - First time wearing in public went flawless. Second time I got a dud of a diaper or something and it leaked all over the place when I sat down. Lesson learnt is to wear a diaper that you can trust fully.
