This may be a worthless cause, BUT Seeing as people here are usually pretty helpful...

Obviously there are no Adult Pampers sizes, but I had heard talk about the larger sizes, being 6 or 7, in the Cruisers line, fitting some people with smaller waists? I personally am not a large guy at all and was wondering what waist size the Pampers size 6-7 might compare to because they would be easier for me to buy and they cost less :p
Input anyone? :D

If you have an adult frame, it's likely they won't fit. It will probably depend somewhat on age, as well. If you're a skinny preteen, you might squeeze into them. But yeah, don't get your hopes up too high.

I understand the attraction to baby diapers, but in general adult diapers are much more practical. (Sorry, don't have an exact waist size for you.. but if I had to guess maybe lower 20's).

For most people under 30 inch waists maybe capable of wearing Pampers 6 or 7.

Thanks, dprdinky! I'd estimate my waist size to be around 26 (I'm not the biggest guy, haha :p) so I think I'll give 'em a try :)

Magic, the main difference between Pampers Cruisers Size 6 and 7 is that the 7 have more side stretch. Cruisers are designed for use on active toddlers, meaning they are less than ideal for longer naps and bed. Apparently the Size 7 was invented to make diapering plump toddlers, not even older kids.

Here is an actual example. In May 2007 my friend and neighbor's then 11 year old daughter started wetting at night more then GoodNites could hold. Except for the girl's enuresis she is bright and well coordinated. Having seen the TV commercials the girl asked her mother if Size 7 would help her. Then she was 4'8" 80 pounds with 25" hips. Sure the girl could even fasten the Size 7 herself, with stretch to spare. However, the diaper was significantly too short to reach high enough they would stay in place when wet. Also, the leg holes were too small.

A difference between baby/toddler and adult disposables is that the adult diapers have more than one tab per side. This way the leg holes can be adjusted. Despite many years of R&D by baby diaper manufacturers it seems 50 pounds and under 4'0" is the maximum size for which a single tab per side is practical in the real world.

And THIS is what I meant when I said people here are helpful :D
Thanks a lot, I would definitely say I have more insight in this now, maybe I'll reconsider getting them now :\

Simply put... you are not a baby... baby diapers will not fit you properly.

For heaven's sake... I have a hard enough time getting Huggies size 6 to fit on my Teddy Bear.

If you are a small enough individual... try Goodnites... they are at least made for teens.

If you HAVE to go with baby diapers, don't get cruisers. I've never had any luck getting them to fit me. I'd go with Baby Dry size 6. Those have the best chance of doing so, at least in my experience.

I'm really skinny but my hips are kinda big (35 inches) and I can fit into baby dry size 6. You just have to stretch the sides out for like 5-10 minutes to their absolute limit and then staple the front tabs a few times (so they don't break off) You'll probably fit as long as you're not overweight or anything like that.

Thanks for all the advice guys :D
I bought a small pack of Cruisers size 6 today (They didn't have 7) and it turns out they fit! :D
They're not as ideal as an actual adult diaper, which I did happen to get while out as well, but they do the trick if I'm low on cash I guess :)

If you get baby diapers, do not get Cruisers. They are more expensive than Baby-Dry, less absorbent, the sixes and sevens are smaller than Baby Dry Size 6, and the tabs suck.

You kids must be freakin tiny... I can barely get Huggies 6 to fit on my Teddy Bear.

Well, either that or Teddy is huge. :D

Hmm, my waist was 32 last time I tried and I fit into the size sevens quite well, despite being stretched to their limits *blushes* Its neat and kinda cute when you do, and with a waist of 26, it wouldn't be as awkward :p Great for a little personal baby time, okay for a little use, horrible for any practical use :p However, tehy make great stuffers!

Magic, the main difference between Pampers Cruisers Size 6 and 7 is that the 7 have more side stretch.

I've measured the Cruisers 6 and 7 by pinning them to a corkboard and measuring them both at full stretch and actual size, and the only difference is that the Cruisers 7 is about 1.75" longer in total length. There is no difference in width, front or back, whether stretched or not.

Sorry to counter your post (you're usually spot-on about everything), but I know for a fact the sides aren't any bigger, unless there was a revision since the 7s initially came out.

Besides... Baby Dry "fit" better than Cruisers 6 or 7. Much stretchier. :)

Oh, also, to the OP and everyone else... You aren't babies, and as such these baby diapers (if you can stretch them around you) are only going to reach your hips. Hip size is a much bigger factor, and 30" hips are pretty much the absolute max for a baby diaper, regardless of brand. I'm at 32" hips and have to use an extra set of tabs.

i am a 17 year old female, and i weight just over 100 lbs and im 53, and i can fit into a size 6 comfortably, but i am a little person in all aspects of the word little, but my hips are a bit bigger because of me being female, i dont know if that helps at all, but i tried.

When considering baby diapers waist size is almost non-issue unless you are only 4ft tall. They just don't go up that high. I'm skinny as a rail with no hips so I have no problems with Pampers size 7.
