Thread: What's your favorite lightweight diaper?

  1. #1

    Default What's your favorite lightweight diaper?

    While all the diapers I've ever worn are special in their own way, at any given time my stockpile has two "types" of diaper in it. The first is a type of diaper we've talked about on this site at length. A diaper that's bulky and is super absorbent to soak up a lot of wettings and be worn for an extended period of time. My longtime diaper in this type was Abena M4s, but with those dwindling in my closet I've given Dry 24/7s a try. Abenas and Dry 24/7 are both clearly designed to keep a bed dry overnight which means the design assumes you're wearing them in bed, and this means that some design features bring design flaws along with them. It's wonderful how high up on my torso the diapers come, and hey, the more wettings a diaper can hold the happier I am. But this also means that Abenas and Dry 24/7 don't get tight on me. In fact, walking around it's clear they'd fall right off me if not for the fact the crotch is so bulky my thighs hold it in place. On which note, the giant crotch isn't something I'm a fan of either. I realize a lot of ABDLs like the bulk and the waddle it makes you walk with, but I adore snuggling up in bed in a nice, warm, wet, and sometimes messy diaper. When the crotch is so bulky I can't easily close my legs when I curl up I really can't get comfortable. [Note- I find that Abenas were actually a bit better in this regard. Once I'd worn an Abena for a while the crotch would sort of collapse down a bit. Dry 24/7s so far have not.]

    So I'd like to talk about the other type of diaper given that I don't think it's discussed nearly as much. Do you all have a favorite lightweight diaper? For all we shit on them, pun intended, I love Depends Maximum Protection. For those of you not familiar with the name, it's the one diapery diaper that Depends still makes. It's plastic-backed, has three tapes, and is diaper-style rather than pull-up style (which is to mean it tapes closed). It may lack the padding of Abena and Dry 24/7, but this in turn means a lot more flexibility. It conforms to my body a heck of a lot better which means I can walk around in one without it falling down, much like wearing a pair of traditional underwear. The thin construction is much more comfortable between my legs as well as it means I can close my legs just as if I was naked.

    Does anyone have a diaper similar to this you'd recommend that I try out? I'd like to know if there's anything out there worth trying!

    I would recommend tranquillity ATN. They are pretty thin, amd hold a decent amount.

    The Wellness Superio, Molicare Comfort Super, Tena Flex Supers/Maxis, and Northshore Care Supreme Lite are a few good ones that I like which are comfortable, discreet, and much more absorbent than Depends.

    Tranquility Slimline Breathable. Super comfy, nice fit, hold a very good amount, durable, comfortable, EXCELLENT value for the money, and the tapes are phenomenal. Strangely enough, they are the only cloth backed that I like and none of the things listed can be applied to the plastic backed version of these. The plastic backed ones are horrible and I don't particularly care for the ATN's either. Tranquility's plastic is far too thin and trash baggy for me, too delicate, and they don't have a good ratio of padding to plastic.

    Tena Stretch is pretty amazing as well, very durable with activity. The only thing that would make Tena Stretch better would be standing leak guards. However, they are really good even without them. Great fit with the large single tab.

    Tena Flex are really good too, and are by far the easiest to change in public. They do not have quite the coverage of a standard diaper, but they perform very well none the less.

    Tena Slip Maxi (discontinued, however Bambino still stocks them) have to be the best lightweight diaper. They have an extremely comfortable fit, fantastic tapes, and can hold a great deal for their thin profile. Additionally, they seem to have great odor control.

    They hide great under clothes, and can even be worn discreetly with dress pants.

    I also look pretty favorably on Depends Protection with Tabs but they seem to be getting even harder to find retail. I don't know if I like them enough to order them online. I have some Tranquility ATNs and Northshore Supreme Lite Briefs on order for comparison. I've tried the ATNs before but it's been a while, so I want a more recent example before I decide what I'll get. The baseline Waddlers are very good that way but the print could be a problem for workplace discretion if there is peekage and they're also not currently available in medium, so the point is moot for further purchases at this time.

    I'll second that - it's still my favourite non-ABDL nappy, and I'm hopeful that the new Tena Maxi Active Fit will be a worthy successor.

    Still, I'm not quite sure that it fits the definition "lightweight". They start off thin, but thanks to all the SAP, they swell pretty rapidly; the padding at the front and rear is pretty wide; and they are quite absorbent - not on a level with the likes of Space or Rearz, but sufficient that I would have no qualms about sleeping in one, so long as it was dry when I went to bed, and I hadn't consumed a rediculous amount of liquid. I think I'd describe them as "flexible".

    Tena flex maxi (plastic backed) it's just a great all around diaper when out and about.

    TotalDry Plus Protection Fitted Briefs great daytime diapers. I did not have any leaks with this diaper.

    I'll second this. I love the Tena Super Stretch, but they make a lighter form, called the Ultra Stetch, which is good too, and a bit more discreet. I've never much cared for the Tranquility diapers, but it's personal taste.
