Thread: cloth backed abena m4 and molicare super plus

  1. #1

    Default cloth backed abena m4 and molicare super plus

    I was looking at getting some plastic backed abena or molicares but where I can buy them from have sold out of all plastic backed.
    I'm really disappointed as the purple molicare looked cute. The new cloth backed are white and look way different.

    is it even worth getting cloth backed?

    Funny you should ask this, as there seems to be a lot of confusion. I haven't heard anything about Abena getting rid of their plastic-backed diapers lately, and XP Medical offers both kinds. But I have heard a lot of rumors about this on the Molicares. That's why I called Medline about it, and they said all the Molicare Super Pluses they had were plastic-backed and the person I spoke with hadn't heard anything about a change from that. If it's true that the cloth ones you're seeing are white, and all I'm still seeing online are the purple, I'd call and check. You can get a case of the Super Pluses pretty inexpensively on Amazon, from a company called AVALINE. Also, just on a side note, you can get them from . . . Staples, believe it or not. You can have them shipped to a local store and pick them up whenever you're ready. How cool is that!

    I'm in Australia so prefer to buy from an australian store.
    Both plastic backed products have been removed from the websites I viewed and only cloth backed available now.
    The molicares padding also doesnt seem to spread around the sides a bit anymore

    It would appear as though the Super Plus has disappeared entirely from Independence Australia's website. Genuinely sad, now. I'm going to get in touch with them to ask about plans.

    Grogan, what sites are you using?

    Australia. Didn't see that one coming. I keep forgetting how much the Internet has connected the world and erased all boundaries. Well, best of luck to you.

    Both Independence Australia's and BrightSky have no plastic backed Molicares. They have been replaced by MOLICARE PREMIUM SOFT SUPER PLUS. Actually Molicare are doing free samples and and i have requested around 10 over the past 3 weeks and all have been delivered. I rate them very highly even better than the old plastic backed ones. They hold 4 very large wets.

    My experience with cloth-backed Abenas didn't go too well. After the first wetting, the pant constantly tried to slide off my butt; it just felt really awkward. As far as cloth-backed Molicares go, I have no experience with those.

    Independence Australia's and BrightSky are the ones i have been looking at.
    i have found a few others littles-downunder are ab related and have fabines abri form and wellness.
    also there were a few other more medical/healthcare but couldn't find out about discreet shipping so didn't save them.

    @sloth are the Molicare free samples discreet shipping? and are they still purple or definitely white?
    i really liked the look of the old molicare but the new one just looks weird

    Really sad to hear about this development

    I have just put through an order for some samples of those Molicares. Hopefully they work as well as the Super Plus used to. Guess I best start rationing my bag and a half that I have remaining!

    You can still buy PVC backed Abenas from Save Express in Germany. I buy them often and they're very good. I've tried the cotton feel ones and they're rubbish and just wouldn't bother. They lose their fit over a short while and keep sliding down your hip and just wont stay up among other things. I used to wear the Molicare before they went cloth backed, but not tried the new type. I don't think I'll bother.
