Thread: BetterDry

  1. #1

    Default BetterDry

    Are BetterDrys worth trying? In the U.S., where they're not as readily available, and are priced at something of a premium? Is there a better place than https://www.comfycare.net/diapers to get them here?

    I don't know, a case of large works out to $1.60 ea. that seems reasonable to me for what this is- A diaper with incredible suction. I cannot wet faster than it can suck. quite amazing. According to Betterdry, ComfyCare is the only dealer here right now. Molicare all plastic is $1.60 and so are Northshore Supreme. Seems to be the magical price point for this level of performance. I just wish BetterDry had Molicares tapes.

    They seemed of decent quality when I tried them, just didn't work particularly for me and my preferences fit-wise.

    Comficare online is the right place to get them. Yes they are premium diapers, but at $1.60 each, and able to last 12+ hours each, they are probably among the cheapest diapers out there. They even translate to a lower cost than even confidry, which also costs $1.60 each- simply because they last longer.

    Think about it, can you spend less than $3.20 per day with "cheap" diapers that require 6, 8, even 10+ changes per day? And without always have a big risk of leaking? Not likely.

    Compared to the Comficare they are a disgrace! But they were a tough act to follow. They just don't fit very well, have no landing zone, & stretch & break at night. Certainly not a premium Diaper like the Comficare was!

    BetterDry are a breed all their own, I haven't seen any other diapers (except crinklz, which are made by the same company, Thrust Vector) that are anything like them. This makes them a bit difficult to compare with other diapers. They're a European brand that doesn't really have a good outlet in North America, so they're more expensive on the average for what you get.

    From my experience their best features are soft shell, sticky tapes, soft padding, fast wicking, and very tall standing leak guards. The cons seem to be low padding in the front/back, clumping and breakdown when wet, and easily damaged/ripped shell. They also swell a LOT when wet, which could be listed either way.

    What? They aren't just oremium, they're ultra premium. And their best feature IS not having a landing zone! This is what allows for a snug fit around the legs, which is impossible with any properly fitted diaper that uses a landing zone and that horrible "no lower tapes" design.

    Stretching and breaking shouldn't be a problem either- if you're wearing a properly sized diaper. Which it sounds like you were wearing one size too small. I know that's all but required with those landing zone diapers, but betterdry is intended to fit properly from the start. That's why they didn't work for you before.

    I have urge urinary incontinence and need to wear a high-capacity diaper 24/7. I have tried Better Dry (which I bought from a local distributor near Toronto) and found them to be excellent. Although the design appears quite different from that of a Comfydry 24/7, I found that the two products were approximately equivalent in overall capacity and in the rapidity with which they can absorb a "gusher" leak. However, Better Dry costs slightly more on a per diaper basis; so I use Comfidry 24/7 as my regular diaper. Why pay even a little bit extra for an equivalent product?

    This might be a recent chage, but when bought by the case, the two of them have nearly identical pricing. That's probably done on purpose for the exact reason you just stated.

    Alas, there is no perfect diaper. I like Betterdry for during the day, but because they swell directly where you pee, they do not wick. this is not a big problem during the day, But at night, if you wet into the front. it can feel like a bowling ball in your lap. Molicare on the other hand will wick all the way front to back, and is more comfortable to me at night. The Betterdry can have some pad separation from the front third, but i would not call that clumping. perhaps the best diaper for the very active is the Northshore supreme with it's rather stiff pad, it stays in one place better with activity.
