Thread: Does anyone still wear Attends in North America?

  1. #1

    Default Does anyone still wear Attends in North America?

    I am curious to know if anyone from North America on this forum still uses Attends?

    I mention N.A. because the European / Asian Attends are better.

    I ordered a bag of plastic backed classic Attends, and nearly every one of them had a tape defect. It looks like when they folded the diaper, the tapes came undone and stuck to the inside of the diaper. Same thing happened about six months ago to me, but I thought maybe I just had a bad batch. In addition, it seems like they are cutting the plastic shorter-- these barely came up to my waist. I wound up throwing away the rest of the bag (which I hate doing).

    Its really unfortunate.. Attends used to be such a good brand. I used to use their cheap institutional ones back in the late '90s to early 2000's, and even they were decent.

    Sorry for the rant, just had to get that off my chest.

    I still use them for lighter needs when I don't want to waste a premium one. But my batch was purchased about 4 years ago. I got a case and use them sparingly. I have an occasional tape issue, but I attribute that to their age more than anything else.

    I wear Attends Overnight Briefs for the night. There pretty good.

    I do, but only becouse I recently bought some for less the $10 a case. There not terrible in my opinion, however; they are far from premium.

    Occasionally, not a big fan of the cloth backed, but I'll use the poly backed with stuffers sometimes, and occasionally I'll get the waistband variety.

    They're terrible beside the overnight version. The waistband briefs are horrible, they have little to no capacity really. They're no better than the rest.

    I actually have am unopened vintage bag of the waistband briefs. They were awesome back in the day.

    I'll never buy any current Attends diapers again until I hear some sort of miracle.

    So the overnight ones are better right?

    I bought a case of Attends Waistband recently on sale. I needed a replacement for Depends Protection with Tabs now that they've gone to clothlike covers. I like the plastic shell of Attends and the tapes are substantial but that's about as much as there is good to say about them. I knew they wouldn't hold much but the clumping of the padding is worse than I remembered and the lack of standing leak guards is an additional hazard. I'll be looking for something else to fill the slot for an acceptable thin diaper.

    He's said he put them in a thin low assorbency diaper since they are cheap and depends moved to cloth back recently.

    @ trevor, if you can live without waistbands... first quality ib briefs are a good substitute.
