Thread: Depends briefs are not so bad

  1. #1

    Default Depends briefs are not so bad

    I know the Depends products are fairly basic, and nowhere near as good as quality diapers, but IMHO they are not terrible either, particularly for wearing just for fun.

    I don't think I would trust them if I suffered from actual incontinence issues, and had real uncontrolled accidents, but for ABDL playtime they are quite sufficient. I've been buying them on and off for years, and have used the diaper style with the button up elastic side tabs, and found those a bit awkward to fit snugly enough, therefore more prone to leaks, but the fitted briefs aren't to bad at all.

    When I wear the fitted briefs, I am usually playing in my little mindset, and I pretend I'm wearing a pull up. If I tuck myself so I'm pointing down, and make sure the briefs are pulled up properly with the leg guards fitting snugly, I can manage quite a good sized wetting, providing I don't just let go all at once and flood it completely.

    Having said that, I know some people, me included, like to occasionally fully flood a nappy after holding in for a long time with a lot of build up. Even if you have a good seal, the capacity is nowhere near that of better nappies, and they will overflow quickly.

    But realistically I think they get a bit of a bad rap sometimes. They are cheap, available everywhere, and if managed properly can withstand a fair bit of punishment.

    But I have learned to make sure they are pulled up and snug. I wouldn't trust one worn under my clothes for any period of time to not leak after even a mild dribble. But as a playtime accessory they do a decent job.

    Yeah, Depends aren't terrible. There's just better ones out there, IMO.

    For me and others, Depends were the first true adult diapers that we got our hands on. Before those I'd only had Goodnites, pull-ups and baby diapers. They were amazing when I first got them. I did have some problems with them. I usually only would use them for a single wetting and then change, since that's about all they could hold, it seemed.

    After using them for a few years, I was able to get some premium ones online. I haven't gone back to Depends since. Are Depends terrible, no. They serve their purpose. I could see someone with mild / moderate wetting issues using them. But personally, I don't think I'll ever go back to using them. I'd rather get some of the premium diapers online. I get a better quality, more absorbent brief, and don't have the embarrassment and hassle of buying them in the store.

    I remember the time that I had no clue that the premium diapers existed. All I knew about for adult diapers is what Walmart and rite aid carried. Then one time I met up with a diaper lover and he handed me an adult diaper that had teddy bears on it. I was like, "Oh my god! Where did you get these awesome diapers?!?" It turns out they were bambino diapers and I was introduced the world outside of store bought diapers.

    I suppose being that they're readily available, they do deserve a little respect. But I am one of those people you mentioned who likes to flood a diaper, I don't want to worry about pacing myself while wetting lmao. Depends were the first I bought so meh they'll have a place in my origin story lmao but I don't think I'll buy them ever again.

    I am getting a free sample of depends in the mail actually. I'll see how I like them. I usually just use the Walmart Women's Assurance if I don't wear what I get from Awwsocute. Without considering that I love diapers, I actually have urinary incontinence and a leaky bladder. All stems from having to have surgery when I was about 4 because the band that is supposed to break around your bladder never did? I don't really know. My mom is an RN and she was saying something about a band on my bladder didn't break so they had to break it for me.

    Here in NZ it seems you can only get them from pharmacies which I think was $35-$40 a pop. While not bad, and a good diaper for wearing to work, it's too expensive, especially when we have the Tena Maxi Slips, which over here are far away the best diaper available for $16.50, or $26.50 shipping included.

    I wear Depends with tabs (6 tapes) every day. They are thin enough that you can't tell I'm wearing a diaper. I get 6 - 8 hours out of each one. Also, $11.97 for a package of 20 work well with my wallet.

    I am the same way. XD Depends where something that I had only gotten since it was the easiest to obtain from a store. Ever since I went premium I pretty much decided I would never go back. Even if I only had a little money, I simply wouldn't buy diapers if that was the case. I rather not waste it on mediocre diapers.

    Yeah, and for all of your information; for people with vaginas peeing a little and then stopping might introduce bacteria into the urethra and cause UTI so better flood and just.. let go every time :O

    No, they are almost useless when it comes to functionality. If you are a bed wetter they are completely useless during the night. For day time use they are also terrible. Some hospital diapers are better. Depends cannot handle a big flood. if you think they can go for it and then take a trip to a store or somewhere after that big flood and see if you trust the diaper enough to not leak.
    Depends has the potential to be one a great diaper. If they ran the absorbent parts all the way to the front, and back and tripled the absorbant materials, then they are starting to become a "not so bad" diaper.
