Thread: Abriform - what size?

  1. #1

    Default Abriform - what size?

    I think I'm finally ready to purchase my first pack of diapers. I've located an online store that sells Abriform in various sizes.

    I've got an ~85cm (34in) waist and I'm male, so I'm thinking the medium (recommended 70-110cm).

    The Plus has 26 to a pack ($1.61 ea, $42) , the super 24 ($1.16ea, $28), the extra 22 ($1.63 each, $36) and the X-plus 14 ($2 each, $28).

    Interestingly, the super seems to be the best value despite being thicker than the plus. Before checking the prices carefully, I was intending to get the Plus, but I found that they cost about as much as the Extra. So I think the Extra looks like the best bet.

    I've read a few other threads and the X-Plus seems to be well-liked. Is it that compelling over the Extras?

    Thanks in advance.

    I have a 36" waist and I buy the medium size. The model number, if it is that, is M-4. They are plastic backed and they fit me very well. I think the full description of the diaper is Abri-form original X-plus. I usually get mine from XP Medical and their chart shows that the X-plus are the most absorbant. Of course they are the most expensive too but I've found them to be one of the best diapers I've ever had. Hope this helps a little.

    Thanks for the info.

    I believe the M-4 is the X-Plus - from what I've seen the 1-4 is Plus, Super, Extra, X-Plus in order.

    OK, now I'm tempted to grab one Extra and one X-Plus.

    How big is the package approximately, and will it allow for "discreet transport" in a backpack if I purchase two?

    I have a 32/33" waist and the Medium Abenas fit very well.

    for you waist size, it's a medium.

    as for discreet.. good luck. even one pack will be somewhat of a stretch for a standard size backpack.
    both packs are about the same size.. going from memory, about 12" tall, 6" wide, and 20" long...

    I have a reasonably sized backpack, and a lot of random stuff in it that I can take out of it. I think I'll definitely with just the one in that case. The pack is promised to be shipped in an "unmarked grey satchel" with no reference to what it is, so I think I can get away with it.

    Still need to order the thing I am hiding them in though.

    At 28 bucks a pack I'd get the supers (that's cheap for typical aussie prices). By the way where are you ordering them from?? As they are your first diapers, you'll probably need a few to get the fit right, so It's probably better to get twice the diapers for your $$. At least to begin with anyway.

    physiosupplies.com.au (who incidentally refer to them as "adult baby nappies" - am I right in thinking actual IC people might not like that?)

    Thanks for the advice though. Should be doing the order in a couple of days...

    It is. When buying some on ebay i searched for both m4 and x-plus and both packages were exactly the same, x-plus is the more widely known name though.

    As for size, buy samples. As expensive as they are (hdis sample is the best) that's the only real way to know. I "thought" i was a small based on measurments but i am a medium. For $11.95 at hdis.com you can get 26 diapers in a size shipped to your door, even some molicare. Not only can you try out various quality diapers but you can choose your sizes for about the same price as 2 samples in another diaper. I highly recommend this sample pack if you're new to diapers or need to know how the other brands are.

    And @ the package: It's pretty quiet, won't be audible inside a bookbag, though might not fit unless you take a few out. The packages i get are very bulky rather than large, they don't bend easily, very stiff.
