I've tried all 3 sizes of bambino bessimelo (sp?) diapers and never had consistent luck avoiding leaks so I decided to post about it here. I also don't know what the best way to put them on standing up is.
I'm about 5 feet 7 inches and weigh 220 pounds
My waist is 43 inches where a belt goes.
However since I'm overweight, at my belly button its 47 inches.
Typically I put on diapers so that my belly sticks out the top and tape them on around where a belt would go. I suspect that when I first started I didn't know how to tape them on tightly enough to avoid sagging but I think I've mastered that now.
The medium size (they don't have a small) doesn't fit my waist, the large fits tightly, and the extra large still fits
I was hoping that if I gave my measurements someone with a similar size and shape could give me some advice such as what size do I fall under and where should the parts of the diaper be relative to my belly button (for ease of reference)?
edit: I just noticed a discrepancy between the size chart given here and what I found:
"One Medium fits waist 32 to 44 inches. One Large fits waist 44 to 58 inches." Yet mediums don't fit me at all somehow.
edit2: Even if no other tips are offered, if someone could explain what size I should trust out of the large and extra large that would be a great start, since I don't even know what size I should start with before I even think about how to put it on right.
