I've never heard of it, but it doesn't look like it would be very discreet, since the address would say Dorset Nursing Supplies Ltd., but the delivery looks like it would be fast

Never tried that one. They seem a bit pricey too. 24-48 hour delivery. That will be quick.

They are the best place I have found to get Abenas from in the UK (42 xplus medium for £21.75 plus shipping). As far as the discreetness goes it is probably as good as you can expect from online ordering with a return address and so on but its not like they have 'DORSET NURSING SUPPLIES' or 'ADULT NAPPIES' emblazoned in big letters on the box :)

They seem rather cheap to me. Better than ordering from Hartmann direct. Will give them a try next time I'm running low.

Well just got my order from Hartmann. Don't buy from them if you want privacy. It came in a Molicare Box with the fact that they were incontinence products clearly posted on the box. It was also quite loosely sealed so not my no.1 recommendation. Still I've got 2 packs of Molicares now :D

Interesting, but I have never tried them. It is pretty cool that they ship to the US too. Shipping is free for over 100 euros which is what? About 140 dollars? So no thanks, I seriously doubt I will be ordering from there because of that shipping policy haha. One thing that really interested me was these molicares that they have. They are way different from any molicare I seen sold from a US company, which is good because I hate purple diapers! Check them out!

They're not a very distinct purple. It's quite subtle.
I like molicares they're very practical. They are more comfy and reliable than Abri Forms.

Those are the (new) MOlicare Premium diapers. They have a plastic-backed maxi pad like middle and sides made from cloth materia. I've never tried them, but by the looks of them I gather I won't like them.
Molicare diapers come in two colors: The "plus" version comes in purple while the normal aborbency version comes in blue.

Hmm... interesting.

I wonder if that "free shipping" thing applies to the USA.

Probably not... but it would be cool to get some euro-spec (heh) Tena Maxis.

Each to their own. I am a bit unsure about Abris. They maybe super bulky and be able to hold a lot but the plastic tears really easy and the tapes have a habit of digging into my skin or breaking.

Molicares hold huge amounts and don't buckle. I like the purpleness as well.

I've never even had them, I'm just defending them wildly, like stupid white people that defend black people when someone says the N word. Your stupid, its not your problem shut the hell up.

You should get a smaller size E. I'll try them out some day in the next few months probably, I'll see how they do.

How recent was this, I heard that those were problems with the old Abriforms.

I personally like Secures or Bambinos better than Abris. The price is relatively close... the absorbency is really good... and the tapes on the Secures & Bambinos don't tear like Abris do.

Size E????
We don't use your silly American measurements on this side of the atlantic sir!

I meant, maybe you should get a different size, E.

I DO NOT like the looks of the Secures, bambinos are OK, but no wetness indicator.

I wonder if the absorbency of Secures at Small is the same as Abri's at large....

I'm actually serious now though, I don't like looks of secures and I'd rather not advertise what I like on my diaper, with no indicator!

Alex... as much as Bambino will deny it... Secures @ Bambinos are pretty much the same... only the waist bands and designs are different.

Why do you need a wetness indicator anyways? You know when you need a change.

I like the way they look.

What about Secures, someone said back at TBDL, that they had 5 droplets and the mediums only have 4. Is there really any difference, secures hold the same at all sizes or what?

Because bed-ridden elderly people in nursing homes may be unable to communicate when they need a change! And let's face it - the majority of diapers is probably used in environments like that.

I believe you missed my point Peachy. :laughing:

I know why the wetness indicator was invented. I was specificly asking Alex why he (a very healthy and active teen) needed one.

Though it is kinda fun to watch in a mirror as the little lines change colour or dissapear. Makes me feel like such a kid. :D
