Thread: 2 Folded adult diaper instead of 3?

    The three fold has a specific function. It's so diaper packages can fit on a store shelf. A double fold would make them too tall to be stocked. Kind of pointless though, since no stores carry our diapers anyways.

    I was sitting at work the other day and thought of trying this when I got home. Now I'm gonna fold them all like this. You kinda have to place them under something heavy for a while tho so they take the shape of the new fold. Just leave your diaper under a bunch of books for one night and you're good!

    I think for a lot of us what they look like is important, everything about them should be as close as we remember them from years ago. And that fold, that's an important part of the look. Trifold has always looked "wrong" to me. So even though I load up my diaper cabinet with them as they come out of the bag, I still prefer the look of a properly "refolded" diaper.

    Two fold adult diapers end up with the wrong length to width ratio to be properly nostalgic for me... guess it's what's more important in look to you that matters!

    My bet is ABU has their sites set on doing this eventually.

    Well done BTW, very cute.
    Medline and Assorbs came as a bifold

    Yeah I agree, all I've really been searching for is a way to make my diapers more like what I remember when I was a baby.

    When I compared my Abu preschool to the pampers swaddlers I have currently it looked just like a large baby diaper. The only difference was the plastic landing zone and tapes. Looked normal to me? Guess other diapers are different a little bit...?

    I do notice that a bit... they seem longer than they ought to be.

    But on the other hand, one end is thick, smooth, and rounded with that crinkly "U" on the sides that I love to see, and the other end is where it flattens out and you see where the padding stops and then there are the ripples of the waistband. I just love that look, even if the "ratio" is off a little. That's how I remember all diapers looking from years ago. I'm sure that's why I also prefer mostly-all-white and plastic.

    Just look at those bi-folded diapers to the left there in my avatar... don't those look a lot more "authentic"?

    I know what you mean about the 'crinkly "U"' ... and certainly prefer all white too (though some of the new fangled all over print ABDL diapers are delightfully childish)! For some reason the overall shape though does matter to me personally just as much as the fold. The bi-folds in your picture look distractingly long to me. Then again I am really bothered by most ABDL clothing because it's looks freakishly distorted - like when the taped seams of a onesie stay a half inch thick at most with cute print that would have been large relative to a baby and repated 3 or 4 times is relatively tiny on an adult and repeated dozens of times... With the tri-fold I still see a crinkle edge on one side and a poof curve on the other, but also the whole thing has more poof in the middle... *shrug*

    I think my ideal would be bi-fold diapers, slightly thicker and slightly wider (or folded to be wider when closed?). I think that would be the most authentic!

    It would be nice to see two folds, as I agree, image is a huge part of it for me. That's why I prefer ABU's line of single tape diapers. I suspect one reason our brands get the tri fold is because they are manufactured on the same type of machines that make normal adult diapers. You know how weirded out the general population is to adults in diapers, for any reason, hence why they come up with non offending medical buzzwords so people don't feel embarrassed. I think the big scary "D" word is too much.

    I will say, having them folded in threes makes storing them in my dresser drawer easier.

    I suppose if we saw diapers that were just scaled up, we'd have to have a lot thicker (win?) and a LOT wider crotch. Toddlers tottle for a reason, they've got a huge amount of bulk between their legs for their size. It's a wonder they can stagger so fast actually.

    As adults, our bladders don't scale as far as our outer dimensions, and so our diapers don't need to be as absorbent, relatively speaking.
