According to BMI I am a few pounds below being overweight, therefore I guess you could say I am a high "normal" weight. However I guess you could describe my thighs as being fairly thick, maybe even a bit disproportional when compared to the little fat I have.
This has led to many M-size diapers having a subpar fit. Especially the bottom tapes barely (by a few inches) reach the wings of the diaper, while the upper tapes do attach nearer to the middle of the diaper. I have tried some L-sized diapers for brands where the M-size is smaller than average, but those were way too large. They would barely fit properly, even if I used them for double or triple diapering purposes.
I think my thick thighs make me waddle even in relatively thin diapers, if the diapers are of the firmer type. This has inhibited me several times when I decided to try to wear diapers for several days at a time. I either got frustrated and aborted the project or I feel that I became too sedentary.
Does anyone have any experience with these issues? Googling did not turn up much info.
I am in the process of shedding a few more pounds - so that I am in the middle range of the normal weight-category. It seems that my highs are the last hold out of fat, so I hope that they might become slightly slimmer, but if there is anything else I can do, I would love to know it. Especially as I would like to wear diapers more often during the day - and stay active while doing it!
