So, I found out these can fit a 32' waist confirmed, easiest way is to stretch each wing about 50 times real fast to loosen them, then apply the tapes to the edge of each wing so they are holding on barely, them put it on slowly like a pull up holding each wing/tab combo so it doesn't break, taking your time then ease the back up if the tapes pop on either side, just re fasten them and hold them then you should be able to get them on and yes diaper thong indeed. However they hold one wetting decently enough. Also, I got freaked out by a northshore care sample showing up at random today!!! WTF!?
