Well i like my diaps skin tight. And skin tightish diaps = no leaks. But with depends diaps i try to get them tight. POP goes the tape >.> And im here like Gah! Then my mind sprouted an idea. I put the tape where i wanted it and i held it there it about to pop again.. And i stapled it in place with about 3 stables and it held fast. And your like OW right about now with them toutching your skin. But the prongs fold over so you dont feel them. And i got the other side like that allso. And it fit around my legs perfectly. Did the same with the top tapes and it worked like a charm. I couldent get to the middle tape tho:/ I dont get alot of function out of the middle tape anyway. Its helpful when your doubling up, to hold everything together when your up and about. And i tryed the duct tape reinforcement and the diap tapes poped from under it!! Well thats my idea and it works for me and it should work for you. Just let me know how it goes and how efffective it is.
