I finally ordered, received, wore, and "tried out" those Hello Kitty pull ups everyone has been talking about, and I wanted to share with you all what I learned!
(Two important notes regarding the fit and functionality for me specifically: I am a 180 pound, 6 foot tall, 22 year old cisgender man and I am not IC.)
I'll start with what I learned from ordering.
I got them from amazon, specifically Dream Factory Japan. They were $15.43 with free shipping to the US. I was unsure if I would get 2 or 3 of them in the order, and was a little bummed out by how much they cost per unit. But it turns out that I was ordering two times three, making me the happy owner of 6
One last note about shipping: I had to pick them up at the post office. There was a tiny import note on the side of the large envelope in which they arrived.
Next, the fit.
Amazing. These are so stretchy and soft and not meant for 11 year olds. So they are just a lovely step up from goodnites. (it's worth noting that these are my first pull ups, since I don't bother with things that aren't cute) The weird part about the fit that confused me for a while is how the pull ups are depicted on the packaging; they look like they have little boxer short legs. The truth is, these pull ups go up past my belly button and several inches down my thighs when I first put them on. Upon pulling them on, you'll look like you're wearing the biggest old-fashioned bloomers! This is easily fixed by pushing up the boy short legs (they are barely any material at all) and folding down the ridiculously tall waistband. They end up fitting just like any other pull up, with the option of boy short legs and a several-inches-high waistband.
Also, they are surprisingly thin and comfortable. It would be possible to hide them under clothes and maybe even forget you're wearing them. In fact, if you enjoy wearing diapers, they might even be too comfortable!
These are so cute. Like I said, ridiculously soft. They are also pink, Hello Kitty themed, and honest-to-goodness cute adult pull ups. Which is unique right now! They perfectly throw me back to when I was 6 years old and wearing a goodnite under a big, stretched-out pajama shirt.
I stood in the shower and tested one out this morning. I expected to feel the warm leg trickle of failure when I wet, but nope. All liquid went very much to the bottom of the pull up, all concentrated directly between my legs. It was extremely squishy and seemed to work well. I can't say anything about lying down, sitting, or all-day wear, but I do think the leak guards are nice, and the absorbency is way higher than you would expect for something so thin.
I am so happy with these cute adult pull ups. And they're cute and comfortable enough to be my girlfriend's first venture into diaper territory I absolutely believe they were worth the money and small post office embarrassment.
