Thread: Maybe they're not that bad after all

    Default Maybe they're not that bad after all

    Hey guys, so I'm diapered on a budget and can't afford to have premium adult diapers, so I resort to using Depends. I know the stigma they have associated with them that they're not the greatest on the planet, I get that, BUT, I have found a way to make them last. I bought a pack if the Depend Adjustable Underware and the Maximum Protections and hid them in my room. I found out that tripling them up works like a charm. I use two Adjustable Underwares and sandwich a Maximum Protection between the two. I have tried peeing in every position imaginable and have had no leaks! This gives me the confidence to wear to school (community college) every day and not worry about leaks. Also, it isn't as bulky as it would seem. Like many others here, I don't flaunt my diapers, yet I don't go above and beyond to hide them. Usually I'll just wear jeans, a t-shrt, and a sweatshirt to class and no one is the wiser. They hold a decent amount of wettings too. I just have one question for you all: at what point would it be smart to change after I wet? Like how long would it take for me to start to smell and be noticeable to my classmates? Because that's the last thing I want to happen!

    I am not sure what your costs are but how is wearing 3 Depends at once cheaper than a decent diaper?

    I used to use 3 at a time. They don't leak unless you soak them.

    lol i would agree hold on
    1 of your depends is about 1.05$ ok so not bad but with 3 that 3.15$
    one molicare super-plus is 1.76$ and you would only need one of those its more price easy to just buy a ok diaper

    Aren't depends more line 50 cents per diaper? 3 of them for $1.50 though is a lot. That's the same as just getting a case of premium diapers.

    Nah, closer to $.75/diaper. Premium are still a better deal, at least in this situation.

    Wow. I'm stupid haha. Sorry guys I should've read it over before I posted it. What I meant to say was that I can't afford premium diapers because I still live with my parents and can't afford to order them online, have them get delivered to the house, and have the parents find out what the random package for me was. So long story short, I can't afford to get caught buying them.

    Hi theb -
    You might also consider trying the Goodnites Tru-Fit insert pads inside the depends 'protection with tabs' diaper. Those insert pads act as incredible boosters, swelling insanely as you wet it, and are available everywhere, often with coupons. I really like the plastic of the depends, and with these pads inside, they hold enough for some good fun! Just an idea.

    Good luck and have fun!

    Prior to discovering premium diapers I wore Depends when I was in the mood for a diaper. They served well for years, so it is not surprising to find they are fine now. Not up to the level of even a Tranquility - which BTW you may find in a local pharmacy that caters to the medical needs community. We have at least one of these in our town, they are much different from a Walgreens in that they have all manner of esoteric medical devices and a large incon department. If you can find one of them locally you may have a better choice.

    I agree that Depends are not as bad as some make out, but they are also not the same as a good premium diaper. They work, though.

    I agree with Soaking Boy--a cheap but absorbent booster would stretch you supply of Depends. I have found the LUVS 6 to hold a lot and is even cheaper than Goodnites.
