1st of all im sorry if this has already been spoken about, but id really like to try on some plastic back nappies (live in the UK).

Online ordering is not much of a option so im stuck with shop buying only. Ive been round my local morrisons Tesco and sainsbuurys and all I can seem to find is the Tena pull up pants.

Any advice will be much appreciated.

I actually prefer plastic backing as apposed to fabric/cloth because it helps to reduce leakages in the front panel of the diaper/nappy but also because plastic is more comfortable and are reminiscent of the ones I knew as a child growing up in the 1980's before I turned 3 years of age.

Fabric I good because it avoids sweating and is more breaths but as I stated above I has it's disadvantages.

Yours sincerely

I am your opposite. I always used plastic backs, and just other day used cloth back for the first time. Plastic backs tend to be more breathable, but also seem to hold less. Just my observation. This could just be the diaper however. Also, expect crinkles. This may not be good if you are a stealth user like me.

Also, I am in the US so I cannot help you, but I do hear that there is (Supossedly) some adult baby shops in the UK.... I do not know the legitimacy to this, but I will check the names from a few of my UK friends who claimed such.

I will let you know my findings upon finding out. Best of luck!

Unfortunately the big well known UK based supermarkets dont tend to stock nappies of any kind. I have only seen them once in ASDA but I suppose demand wasnt high so they stopped selling them.

However, all is not lost, they are out there and available to us in the UK. You can get them from specialist disability shops or like me, source them online. The brand I always go for is ID Expert Slips PE Medium. If you run a search, you can find them. Ensure you use the term PE, this refers to the plastic backing rather than the fabric like material on the exterior. I hope that helps.

attends slip regular are plastic backed and fantastic too.

you could also try the Boots' version (if they're still the same? :dunno:)

Drylife/IncontinenceShop have shops from which you can order and collect in the south and the north. see their websites for details.

if you tell us your whereabouts (scary, i know) and how far you're willing to travel, we may be able to help more.

I'd say chemists are the way yo go. They seem to have a much more varied stock that supermarkets.

depending on where you are in the UK you could shop with www.nappiesrus.co.uk order on line and you can pick up from their shops in either Bolton or Hayes... alternatively try ebay and get them shipped to an Argos store near you... depending on budget i recommend abena M4 or L4 or bambino's also try MyDiapers good for a value product...

good luck

I live in the midlands so central to most places but as I work full time traveling can be tough.

As for boots ive not tried boots yet so ill maybe give them a try.

At a push I maybe could online order and maybe get it sent to my work address.

I wore the plastic back nappies when I broke my leg as a teen..........but that was going back many years now............having only really worn drynites since I discovered ABDL I realise how good the plastic back felt and feel compared to the fabric ones of the drynites.

As others have said, Boots plastic nappies (Attends) are it. Pretty sure there is no other major store that sells plastic, but would love to know if that's untrue. I myself wear Attends (both cloth and plastic) on a daily basis and I find them very comfortable and absorbent. I prefer plastic for aesthetic reasons and for nightwear, but find cloth more practical during the day and they're more discreet and a lot less sweaty! The ID Expert nappy is a good compromise as it's plastic with cloth sides. It's also very affordable, though I find the tapes can be a bit rubbish.

I don't know why I never thought of boots........im glad I found them though and as said above they do feel great.

Putting it on was a nightmare and I maybe did make a bit of a mess of it lol sure I will get better.

Yes you definitely will improve with time. I didn't have a clue to begin with and could barely get one on and I'm pretty sure I ripped it. Now I can put one on perfectly within 40 seconds in the dark!
