Thread: Questions about 24/7 wearing

  1. #1

    Default Questions about 24/7 wearing

    Any 24/7 wearers willing to share some math with me?
    Like what brand you wear, how much you go through in a month and the average end of the month cost to refill your stock on diapers?

    What size/brand do you wear and how much it can hold?
    Is it best to wear a certain brand in the day and a different one at night? and what type of pants are best at hiding the bulge when you are in public?

    about 4 a day using depends a bag of 20 is 12 dollars sometimes with stuffers factor 2 stuffers a day at about 9 dollars for 30

    it comes out to about 3 dollars a day so 90 a month 6 bags of depends, and 2 bags of walmart equate overnight pads.

    I averaged $2,350 annually on diapers and supplies for the past two years. I wear almost exclusively AB/DL premium diapers, right now my favorites are ABU Preschool Cloth & Plastic for daytime, Tykables PLeather because leather events and it's fun, Tykables Overnights for overnight, and quite a few ABU puppy paws for heavy days / evenings. 3-5 changes a day is typical.

    Best type of pants - one size two big, preferably tried on while wearing my thickest diaper wet... No particular brand or type - not spandex, LOL!

    Am I not covered by my medical insurance so I don't know how much it actually cost does zero cost out of pocket to me but I'm medically in incontinent and I go through two cases a month plus a case and doublers which is about about 4 diapers a day unless I have the runs

    CVS brand are 11 bucks and you get around 15 I think. I'll run through a pack in 3-5 days depending on my leakage episodes.
    At night it really varies from night to night. Some nights are better I will wake up relatively dry and others I'll wake up with a full diaper. But the nighttime diaper right now is a CVS brand brief, they are 9 bucks and are about 15 per package.

    Now I have ordered some adult diapers from an abdl shop online they were (with shipping) .0 bucks and come 12 per pack. So 30/12 that's $2.50 a day at $75 a month
    The others break-down to
    CVS briefs 1.66 per diaper at 50 a month
    CVS brand diaper .73 per diaper and 22 a month.
    That's 147 a month

    I didn't factor in the sample pack I got because it was only a 2 pack and was 10 dollars.

    The magnifico diapers hold a lot and are comfortable. The CVS brand are not as comfy but hold a lot. The CVS brand brief is best for light flows and they leak if overfilled <~~~~ not good for nighttime.
    My suggestion is get some sample packs and see what works best for you. Rearz.ca is a good place to start.
    ABU I have heard good things (they are in my que to order from).
    Some like the diapers with prints others like a plain white diaper, each should tell you their absorbency.

    Yes for the daytime vs nighttime
    Daytime you can get away with a thinner diaper if you chose, you may run into leaks but if it fits well you'll be ok. Some prefer a thicker diaper for daytime that's okay too, I personally prefer a thinner more discreet diaper for daytime.
    Nighttime depending on how much you wet or if you wet, I'd recommend a thicker more absorbant diaper (the rearz seduction black overnight diapers is what I have ordered) they are absorbant and very thick per the description.
    Also I have some northshore air diapers coming for both days and nights use. They are around $21 for a 12 pack.

    But ultimately just find what works best for you and run with it.

    Days (for me)
    Thinner diaper or brief
    Home after work
    A bulkier diaper because why not
    Nighttime
    Thick absorbent diaper
    Out and about
    Thin diaper or brief I carry at least 4 extras with me.

    I wear ComfyDry 24/7 diapers day and night and use 3 or 4 of them during 24 hours. I buy them from a local medical I wear ComfiDry 24/7 diapers all day and all night and use 3 or 4 of them during 24 hours. I buy them from a local medical-supply store (Healthwick) and pay $160 (Canadian money) for a carton of 72 diapers. So in total I'm spending between $210 and $220 per month on my diapers.

    I also use 3-4 confidry diapers per 24 hours. I get them from xpmedical for $120 for a case of larges. Thats equal to about $0.60/each, or $2.40/day. With even just three per day, they can easily hold my full urine output from drinking about 2 liters of water throughout the day. (The W.H.O. recommended 64+ ounces per day).

    Whatever you do decide to use, you should be trying to keep the cost under $3.00 per day, and absolutely less than $5.00 per day. That should be under $1000 per year if you know what you're doing while wearing 24/7, or as high as $1500 per year if you're just splurging.

    That said, I myself will sometimes splurge on wearing a crinklz diaper overnight. They do have a big added cost, but I'm not counting that since it's in addition to the basic diapers I need, and because I might only wear one or two of them each month.

    Me thinks your math is incorrect.

    Case of diapers = 72 diapers
    Cost approx $120

    120/72 = $1.67 per diaper

    Cost of 4 diapers per day = $6.68

    3-4 per day Northshore Supreme Lites = 120 diapers per month, 45 per case = 2.6 cases per month at $60ea = $156

    1 per day night time diaper (Better Dry) = 30 per month @ $99 per 60 = $50 a month.

    Grand total is $206 a month.

    I'm not ABDL and my insurance doesn't cover this so it's not cheap or fun for me.

    I can think of a million better things I could do with $206 a month.


    It MAY be more cost effective to just wear super bulky diapers 24/7, but I like the discretion I get with the NS Supreme Lites and they're crazy absorbent given their thin profile.

    Being diapered 24/7 is not cheap and most insurance companys do not cover diapers or supplies, I go through 3 to 4 diapers a day works out to be about $8.00 CDN each and every day,
