I have heard/seen them, they look very similar to the poise brand the tescos used to sell, from experience they are only designed to deal with light incontinence, meaning you may get 1 good wetting out of them. I havent personaly tried them.

They're rubbish. The tapes are cheap, they have a cruddy cloth covered outside, they don't absorb much, and they're not particularly comfortable. I was hugely disappointed. In the UK, your best bet is to buy online.

a lot more boots stores now sell the depends brand. It used to be only the very large ones. Try depends, I know theyr kinda crappy, but the best you'l get in the shops here.

Either that or large drynites

aint the depends pull ups?
From my experience, yes.

If you want Boots Stay Dry you have a number of things to consider. For one they have a one size fits all 52" waist. It is difficult for me to tighten one and at the moment my waist is somewhere between 34 and 36". Also the tapes suck and even if you get it tight it won't stay so.

Also, when I had them it took two good wettings. However, the leg guards are temperamental and brake easily. Normally they are going to leak even during the first one because the leg guards have broken. So while they can take a surprising amount, and they swell up quite nicely, you have to be very careful with them or they will leak before you get anywhere near capacity.

Finally, they are very difficult to find. I have been to the biggest Boots I could find in Birmingham (well, bigger than that, the whole West Midlands Conurbation) and they didn't have them. I have been to Boots looking for them four times and only found them once over all of these trips. So if you go out to get them, you might not find them and then you'll either have to get nothing or get some Drynites or adult pull up ones.

I've tried 'em before. I'm sure they have the potential to be a pretty reasonable diaper if it wasn't for the fact that they're so bloody huge. They're really not designed for someone with a youthful, slender build.

Sorry man.

I used Boots Stay Dry before I bought nappies online. I feel that they would be ok to start you off/used on a short term basis.

However, they do not hold much, do not have plastic backing (I love that crinkle sound) and like many other people have said the tapes are not that good.

I would buy a bag and see for yourself. My favourite nappy is the Abena X-plus, which seems to hold loads and swells up very nicely.

Enjoy - J :twocents:

Noted, now i am back to the drawing board

*Starts drawing on the drawing board*
Have you looked in local chemists? They usually stock a small range of Tena, if your lucky they'll have Tena Slip ;) - Every chemist I've been to has been willing to order a pack or 2 in for me.

I love the UK for this reason alone! Best vocabulary ever.

Oh and if you didn't understand,

Honestly,

They are rubbish.

FullMetal -Needs to use the word 'rubbish' more often-
haha... I prefer "bollocks" myself.

I haven't ever tried them, but I will say that, with some slight persuasion from everyone, they sound pretty rubbish.

If online purchasing isn't an option then have a look at this wiki page - maybe you should consider some of the brands on there instead. RedApple made a good point - smaller chemists might have something more suitable, or could order them in for you. The likes of Boots or big company chemists don't usually.

And, uh.. you don't have to answer this, but why can't you buy online? Just curious because some peeps have said before that they can't buy online for reasons that can sometimes be easily worked around... :scratchchin:

owt that Boots have is crap.
while you may be restricted by not being able to buy online, there's still the olde worlde method of walking into a shop and plonking cash on t' counter.
finding a shop is also 'olde worlde': thumb through the Yellow Pages and find the specialist chemists, nursing supplies and mobility shops in your area, ring them and ask if they sell to the public.
another way, if you live up north, is to ring the old cotton mills, as some have taken on incontinence wear manufacture and supply and they can provide samples, sales or purchasing advice.
