I thought I read somewhere that Bambinos were just Secure X Plus with prints?

Is there any truth behind this? If so, what do the Secure X Plus look like?

Thanks a lot in advance,

No it isn't true... you're source is incorrect.

just google image secure x-plus...most of the matches are comparisons between bambino and secure

I'm sorry... but it is true. I've tried both brands and will attest to you that they are the exact same diaper. Same tape "landing zone", same waistbands, same tapes, same construction. The Bambinos merely have AB/DL prints on them and no wetness indicator.

Have either of you guys who said "no" even tried Bambino and Secure?

It was true that they were different, but now isn't.

Up until about 6-8 months ago, there were a few differences between the two. The Bambinos had a front elastic waistband, while the X-Plus did not, the obvious difference in prints, and the Bambinos had a marginally higher cellulose content (making them ever so slightly thicker).

Today, they are the exact same diaper. The X-Plus now include the front waistband just like Bambinos, and there is absolutely no difference in construction aside for the difference in prints on the tape landing area, and the lack of a wetness indicator on the Bambinos.

I have both in my possession currently... They are identical.

Nope.. Both the Bambinos and Secure X-Plus are as thick as they always have been.

If you have any doubts about them being the same, just check the "Links" section on Bambino's website. The first link is to Secure Personal Care's website. Coincidence? :detective:

i compared them side-by-side once. that was before the x-plusses adopted the waistband, so there was that difference, plus the prints, plus i think the plastic covering on the bambinos was softer. if the bambinos were thicker or more absorbent it wasn't enough to be noticeable.

considering that bambinos cost about $2.25 per diaper (and that doesn't even count shipping) i can't understand why anyone would prefer them to the securecare xplusses. if the babyish designs on the front are that important to you then make your own and tape them on yourself.

Avery: I thought Bambino's included shipping with any purchase? I'd look it up, but my attention is in one place and a lot of places.

Though, I do agree, it is a lot of money to spend to get a waist band and some prints that don't really look appealing to me.

oops. you're right rahara, their website says the price includes shipping. i guess that shows you how closely i follow their policies. :p

all the same, it's a rip-off. they also have crappy customer service. they forgot to ship my order, and then when i contacted them about it they didn't bother to reply to my emails until i threatened to tell all my friends what a troup of wankers they are.

i told them anyway. ^.^

Shipping is included, and they are $1.56 per ($75/48 diapers).

And well worth the money, though I don't really care for the pastel prints. I get the Secures instead, for about $1.33 per diaper. With the tape issues and the fact that all the padding ends up in the crotch, I've long since sworn off Abenas, my former favorite.

To the person with the defective diapers a few posts up... Contact them about it. I had the same issue once with a prior case, and they sent me an additional pack free of charge.
