Hi everyone. I just want to hear other people’s reviews on the DryLife slip super nappies. I am disappointed in them.

The leak guards are next to nothing and are so small they can’t tuck between your leg creases. The nappy is incredibly thin. There is no landing zone so the tapes are not adjustable. The outer part does feel very nice and soft and as it is a nappy I still try to appreciate and of course I still enjoy the nappy.

I felt as if I was going to leak after just one wee. I decided to gamble and have another wee in my nappy but by then the bottom was incredibly saturated and I’m sure I was getting a press out leak. The front and back of my nappy were intact dry tho. I guess I could of had another wee if I sat up in bed and purposely aimed to wet the front, but why should that be the case?

I can honestly say I will only ever be buying Northshores, NRU Str8 Ups, Betterdry, Tykables Waddlers, the whole design and quality of those nappies are incredibly better in every way. The leak guards are so tall and the nappies are just lovely and thick and so on.

I’m really sorry if I come across as someone who does nothing but complain but I am just wondering if anyone agrees with me on what I have said?

Unfortunately I have loads of drylifes and not so many Northshores / str8ups etc, but that is my fault for ordering so many of them. My stash is also full now.

So all in all I am just shocked how thin and insecure drylifes feel compared to the other nappies I have mentioned.
 
Try Tena active fit ,
Once I’ve used my stock of Dry life I’m switching to Tena as the fit is way better

Ah very great to know, cheers! What exactly do you not like about the fit with the Drylifes? For me it is mainly the leak guards and they just feel as if they don’t have enough coverage, it’s hard to explain. I mean they are a great cheap price but that is about it.
 
I have try Dry Life but they just didn't meet my needs .
I been using MagaMax Diaper along with some Better Drys .
I like the fun colors that the MagaMax Diapers come in mostly the Pinks & Tie die ones !!
 
I am currently using Drylife Slip Super as my overnight nappy. I totally agree about the useless leak guards and the lack of a landing zone for easy adjustment. My nappy leaked during the night and the bed would have been wet if I hadn’t been wearing plastic panties on top of my nappy. I shall not be buying any more of these.
 
I feel I must speak up for the Drylife Super. Just purchased another case of 45 nappies at £31.99 making each nappy around £0.71p each. If I had bought a case of 40 Megamax it would have cost £89.99 or £2.25 per nappy. We are not comparing like with like. It is similar to comparing a Ford Focus with a Ferrari !. The Drylife is a good everyday nappy that with a couple of changes can get you through the day for reasonable cost of around £60 per month whereas two Megamax per day (based upon the 12 hour claim) would amount to a minimum of £135 per month. Please do not get me wrong, I think the Megamax is a fantastic nappy and I wear one when I know I will not be able to change for hours like a trip to London and the theatre but it is used for special occasions whereas the Drylife can be used day in day out. The tapes are strong, the plastic shell seals around the legs and the padding is soft with a good mix of SAP & fluff and lets remember it only costs 71 pence each or a third of the cost of a Megamax.

I'm going to speak up for Drylife slip super. These meet my needs really well. I'm a dribbler and gusher not a flooder and drylife nappies hold up really well for me, I've been wearing one now for 5 hours and not leaked yet and don't feel wet. I much prefer drylife to Tena slip active fit, they are a much better nappy.

I had several packs of DryLife Super.
I stopped buying them. I found them that their capacity is not to great. When full they felt wet. Dispersion of liquide was quite good and proportional, tapes were goodlooks were good, but somehow I never had to much confidence in them for outdoor activity. Had several leaks when after using them for several wettings.
Tena Active Fit is much better diaper.

Same here
 
Tena slip active fit seem to fall down at the back and I'm worried about a blowout when I have a bowel movement. Drylife slip super maintain a nice tight fit.

I am going to speak up too, drylife large fit me better than Tena they also wick better I haven’t had any problems with the leak guards, also taking in consideration you can change 3 times against the price of one megamax. They work for me we are all shapes and sizes what works for some doesn’t for others. I do prefer betterdry and str8up but there not cost effective all the time for my needs.
