Thread: any thickness comparison of Abena and dry 24/7?

  1. #1

    Default any thickness comparison of Abena and dry 24/7?

    i am thinking of purchasing a pack of dry 24/7 medium. anyone have a thickness comparison next to the abena x plus? And, are they still colored? I thought I read somewhere that they where all white now

    >.< MERGE THE THREAD! That aside, Dry 24/7 is the thickest disposable diaper you can find anywhere.

    Dry 24/7 are only slightly thicker, I cant really notice if you let them sit out for awhile and decompress. The big difference is that the 24/7 absorbes and swells waaaaay more! According to XP medical test, they swell from half a inch to 2 inches, and I totally believe that. My experience is that the Abena dosnt swell nowere near that much, only slightly (after they have decompressed)

    The winner is the 24/7, but just remember the sizing issues between the two

    Don't sweat it. Everybody has been there and done that. Plus, only mods can merge them :P

    thing with the 24/7's that seems to get missed a lot - they're thicker in the middle third of the diaper. That chart for example has thickness as a single number.

    Diapers don't tend to fit me properly most of the time. The medium abena x-plus, or any other brand that are supposed to fit me perfectly are always on the small side. I heard the 24/7's were sized slightly larger and that's exactly what I have been waiting for. Some people have had problems ordering directly from dry 24/7 and recieving the old design. Do you think I will have that problem if I order from xp medical?

    I ordered from XP and had no problem with the delivery. (although Fed-ex came later than expected, not that bad) However, I've found several of the diapers to be somewhat defective, the tapes were folded oddly and at least 3 of them didn't have a waistband in the front.

    I got my first package of dry 24/7's about two weeks ago, and am recently a convert from X-Plus.

    I think Dry 24/7's fit me better (size medium and a 38 inch waist) are slightly thicker right off the bat, and hold ALOT more.

    Just my two cents. =)
