Thread: How many wettings do premium diapers hold?

  1. #1

    Default How many wettings do premium diapers hold?

    I guess premium means ABDL and the good brands, I just wanted to know how many wettings your diapers last for in your ABDL branded ones an der the ones like Abena etc

    It depends how full your bladder is when you wet. But usually about three if you're waiting until you have to pee to pee.

    It also depends on how you define "premium." I think a premium diaper holds at least ten full bladders worth of pee. Does anybody make a premium diaper?

    You mean a full bladder?

    It also depends on how you define hold. If you stand up, it is quite a lot, but when you sit/lie in bed there is potential to leak after two full bladder wettings.

    I guess I don't hold it as much, I tend to pee everytime I get an urge

    Premium doesn't necessarily mean ABDL, just that the diaper can function really well, hold at least 6 hours of wetting without leaking, and also be a trustworth diaper you can count on.

    Confidry, Northshore, and Betterdry are not abdl diapers, but are pretty much the best when it comes to being premium. Crinklz is too, which is the same as betterdry but has ab prints.

    And as I kind of mentioned, it's not exactly how many bladders worth they can hold, but more of how long they can hold up. With staying well hydrated (which is nearly 2 liters of water per day), confidry diapers will typically last me about 8 hours each. In the past that was about 4 full bladders worth of flooding, though that fourth flooding would often lead to a leak (especially if sitting).

    Abena -used to be- a premium diaper, but no longer is. This being because they average only lasting 4 hours, and are just not a trustworth diaper anymore due to too many manufacturing failures, bad tapes, and pinhole or major leaks. True they are still good diapers though, and can easily hold a couple of full bladder floods. Just not on the level of premium.

    Oh, and 10 full bladders? WTF, that must be an incredibly small bladder. Even at the low end of 400 ml, that would be 4000 ml! Betterdry/crinklz can barely hold that much under real world conditions, which is usualy going to also require wearing that same diaper for a full 24 hours. No other diaper can come that close and not fall apart or leak.

    Heheh. That was just me poking fun at ADISC's favorite ambiguous unit of measure, the "wetting."

    Although if "premium is defined as six hours," and those six hours might coincide with my morning coffee binge, then perhaps ten ample pees isn't so far off.

    Very true, a "wetting" is so very subjective it simply cannot be used as a unit of measurement. And that time I gave should also be taken as an average at best.

    I was making the very broad assumption that one's liquid intake is spread out throughout the day. Taking in a LOT of coffee in the morning could potentially make a premium diaper last two hours before it's completely saturated.

    Of course, dehydrating yourself in that same evening could potentially make that same diaper last 10 hours or more.

    Many premium brands of diapers state the capacity of the diaper on the package. These capacities are (I think) determined by testing how much the diaper can hold when all the padding is fully saturated. However, because during actual use, you will not generally saturate all the padding, you will not be able to get the diaper to hold as much as the package says it should hold. In my experience, about 2/3 of the stated amount is what you might expect to get the diaper to hold before it starts leaking.
