So, I have been out of my home country (US) for quite some time now without very much downtime and was looking forward to being home again. I have returned to a drought though, a famine of proportions that I was un-aware. There do not seem to be any stores selling adult diapers anymore! I have just relocated to a new area (Wichita Kansas) and have been looking into stores for any form of padding that is not a pull-up and can't find a darn thing.

I actually had more resources to find stuff when I was out of country. I currently don't have an address here so ordering something is not really prudent until I can secure some housing. I just wanted a fix, and form of padding that I could wear and enjoy the feeling again, maybe see a movie. Where can I go? What can I do? And why aren't adult products sold in stores anymore?

On a side note, I would much appreciate any sort of up to date ground intel on any stores or suppliers here in Wichita Kansas if anyone has any?

I never have a problem finding store brand tape-ups at grocery stores or drug stores. It's hard to find Depends Max/Depends with tabs but it's not too difficult to find the store brand.

There are Walgreens all over Wichita, and their website says most have Certainties in stock. Not good quality, but it's better than nothing (they also have attends, depends, and Tena but those aren't in every store.) If you go to Incontinence Products, adult diapers, free shipping $25, discreet shipping, adult incontinence, Tena, Certainty, Depend, Poise, Underpads, Protective Briefs | Walgreens then select a brand and product then click on the find at store you can enter your zip code and it will bring up Walgreen stores in the area with that diaper in stock.

The stores don't sell anything good anymore. You might get a few off-brands or Depend (which really ought to be re-named 'Disappoint') but aside of that, most of the good diapers have to be ordered online. I get my Abena L4's from Amazon. If you have Amazon Prime the shipping is pretty quick, and they have a decent selection of diapers to choose from.

Even pharmacies and medical supply stores don't sell the really good diapers, but you can try there. Nevermind CVS or Rite Aid, look into places near hospitals.

And Craigslist- I've found some good stashes on there for cheap.

Try barneys on west Central right before Zoo Blvd,I haven't been there in sometime but they use to have a large aisle with real diapers. Welcome to the ICT and don't go in to old town alone.

Yeah. I have poked my head into 5 different Wal-Greens, Targets, Dillons, and Wal-Marts and they all cary only pull-ups. I have not found a single one that carries a tape on diaper. I can't order anything yet as I don't have a house yet, I'm in hotels for now while looking for housing.

I am just looking for a tape on diaper, any would do. I have even tried a couple Med supply stores here and they had the same measly selection. I know there is someplace to buy something here, just haven't found it yet.

Almost all of the store diapers are labeled as pullups, but most have tapes. For instance the Certainties are pullups that are designed to be ripped at the seams near the tapes to turn from a pullup to a taped diaper. The bags usually list the ways the diaper can be worn if you read the print on the sides.

Yeah, even the full-size briefs they sell in stores are the cheap, fabric-backed diapers with the pseudo-velcro tape.

In the daytime I wear a Tena Super Plus pull-up with a stuffer or two. These don't leak unless you really flood them, and they're comfortable- just bulky enough to let you know they are there.

And adult sized see-through plastic pants at a retail outlet? Try that on for size. Gather ye plastic-backed's while ye may... - I suggest stockpiling...until you can move to online shopping...

My best suggestion would be to call the local UPS Store and ask them if you can send a package for pickup there. Explain your temporary living situation. I worked at one back in 2004 and they will accept packages for non-mailbox holders sometimes if you arrange it first. We used to charge like $5 for holding.

After that, order some online.

It's kind of surprising that they are so hard to find, but i have noticed the same trend in alot of stores in my area (i'm actually located in Lawrence, KS). you might try medical supply stores, you know, like for home health care.

P.S. Watch out for all the Hummers. Seemed to be 3 at every intersection last time I was in Witchita.

I have been able to get Molicares (the thinner ones, not the thick ones) and Attends Waistbands in a non-chain pharmacy shop. They just have to order them, but they come the next day. I have found that those tend to have better selections. In another city about an hour from me, they actually had tenas in a non-chain grocery store (I've never seen Tenas aside from the pads anywhere in a store before). Though I think your best bet is to order from some place that has UPS shipping, setup a UPS account, type the tracking number in your UPS account and have it held for pickup.

Welcome to KS
Walgreens sells certainty like 10.00 a bag just double up until you get a house .
Or you can get a pobox or a UPS store pobox have it shipped there.old depends can be found at places if you look. Good luck.

Found some Certainty's finally! It was in the ninth Walgreens I found. Wow, what a hassle. I will definitely be setting up a box at the UPS store tomorrow so I can get back to on-line ordering. I guess people don't buy briefs anymore, or no one really bought the ones that were offered anyways. I wonder how the stores would do if they carried Attends at the least with some Tena and Molicare thrown in? Maybe not as well as we'd like to imagine...

Glad you were able to get you some diapers. I agree it is getting hard to find tape on adult diapers in the stores. Most I found in Hutchinson Kansas and now in Arkansas were just pullup diapers.

I had to go to Alco in Hutchinson Kansas to find some tape on ones.

Many store have there in store and online or in store order diapers.
http//:adult diapers - Walmart.com

For most stores it pays not to carry good adult diapers because they sell more of the cheap ones because many people do not know there are better ones.

for Molicares you can order through staples office supply stores.
