I think I am finally going to overcome my fear of buying diapers in public. No idea when, how, why, or who it will be with but I'm going to do it. I've decided that if I truly want to accept who I am, I need to do this. Everyone has given great tips on good brands, online and offline, so that will be interesting. I hope it all goes well, wish me luck peeps!

Good luck! I can buy Goodnites without any fear, but I'd probably be really nervous if I had to buy adult sizes in public unless it was a medical store. But funny thing, I don't dare touch adult sizes that you can buy in a typical store because they usually suck. Like as in Goodnites would be better than anything I'd get in adult sizes anyway =P

Just remember the first time is the hardest time. You will feel so much better afterwards though.

A few tips:

First, do not think about it and do not hesitate. You want everyone else to think this is just a routine trip for you. Do not circle around the store trying to build up the courage or stand in the aisle trying to pick one out. If you do something that seems out of the ordinary, people may ask questions, so act naturally.

As for when, try to do it early in the morning on a weekday when there are few people in the store. You want to avoid having to stand in any sort of line. Self-checkout is a godsend in these situations.

Try to go alone or with someone who already knows your desires or believes a cover story . . .In the middle of the store is not the appropriate place to reveal your desires/cover story to anybody.

I know people on here distrust any store brand adult diapers, but they really are not that bad if you are sensible. Consider this, just about any insurance plan that covers adult diapers, cover enough to allow 10 changes a day for a month. (30 days x 10 = 300 pads/briefs, do not get any ideas, this usually has to have a confirmed diagnosis for an underlying cause of incontinence to apply) I personally, as a big heavy set dude, could flood a Walmart Assurance brief and not leak; however, they could not handle another full flood, but if you can flood that much in two and a half hours repeatedly, you may need to see a doctor or cut back on fluids anyway.

Anyway, it was only recently I bought my first package. I planned the excursion for a few weeks and it was over in five minutes. So, do not think too much about it.

Good luck.

Just remember - The Cashiers and people around couldn't care less about what your buying, and will forget you were ever in there 2 min after you leave.

And even if they do remember you, it'll be "some guy was in here buying diapers"

That's right, some guy. Welcome to ADISC, Some Guy! Do you have any pets? =P

Due to a recent financial issue, not sure when it will be, but thank you all the same. I appreciate the support :)

I will take that into account, I have a rather slender figure so I probably would fit into non-adult sizes to some degree. Thanks for the input :p

Ah, how very true. I can relate that to many other experiences. I'm sure it will get easier after the first time.

In response to each line:
1. That is usually the way to do it. I know I can't hover, so more than likely I will have to do any contemplation in the car prior to entering the store.

2. Timing is everything, I don't want to run into someone I know. If I did, it would probably delay the purchase of the intended target item. I would of course do a quick visual sweep of the store to make sure I don't see anyone who is likely to stop and chat.

3. My girlfriend knows all about the diaper thing and is totally okay with it. She even thinks it is cute and loves the idea of it. Even went as far as to say she'd be a 'mommy' if I wanted her to be o.o talk about an accepting significant other. I was thinking I'd do the trip with her when I have the time, money, and vehicle to get there.

4. I am skinny as a rail but muscled. My waist is probably about 27 inches around. So, I am totoally okay with getting adult diapers or whatever works.I think I will be okay in the wetting department of things.

5. I hope my trip is the same. No complications, total simplicity, and absoulte ease

6. Thanks

I will certainly make a post about how it went! It's all apart of the process eh?

I unfortunetely have a tendency to be remembered for my well according to some, 'attractive' appearance. I know that no one REALLY cares on a deeper level but I'm more concerned with someone making an off the cuff remark. I'm sure however, that I truly have nothing to worry about.

I could probably get them without seeing someone I know. My only real fear is getting asked by a stranger why I would be buying them.

Because diapers are awesome. You could always provide some helpful advice as to what diapers would suit them best ;)

Wait what? o_O

I'm joking but not about how lightly you should be taking the idea of a stranger asking why you're buying diapers. Say someone does ask. How seriously should you take such a question? You can give any answer you like from the relevant to the ridiculous. I'll certainly go to an effort to keep it private from people I know but I'm not going to waste much thought on random people.

"They're for sexual gratification"
"They make me feel good"
"They're for going to long concerts with poor toilet facilities"
"They're for a friend/relative/pet/kid waiting outside too embarassed to buy them himself"
"None of your business" is also excellent.

You can mix and match.

I totally missed that sorry, I haven't been sleeping right. I think it is causing me to feel out of focus. Anyway, I for some reason take things more personally from strangers. Somehow I think it is because they don't even know me but are willing to make an off color comment, to assume something they don't even know. Out of randomness I'll tell you what I think of each of the replies you suggested:
1. I think that would make them laugh at me or give a stare or otherwise negative response
2. They might understand that sort of a thing, good option
3. Believable to a degree I suppose, not so much if they have been to a lot of concerts and never had an issue.
4. That is usually something I think I would say. Somehow it feels like a default response.
5. I am not prone to rudeness at all. So that one wouldn't neccesarily be something I'd ever say.

I think If I am with someone say, my girlfriend I think I'll probably be alright. She knows about the diaper thing and not only accepts me for it but thinks it's cute :p

With regard to #5, I think that unless their question was done very delicately, "none of your business" as a response is less rude than a stranger questioning in the first place. Although it is direct, I think it is sometimes a very reasonable response.

Listen to your girlfriend. She's right.

I guess every time I've been told it was none of my business, I just saw it as rude.

She is right, not always, but I'm glad she sees it that way.

I think everyone's worried about buying diapers at first, but there's tons of little tips.

1) Medical supply stores have staff that are probably the most easygoing. Whatever you're buying they've sold it 1,000 times before. Nobody cares.You're also less likely to run into people.

2) You can also check in the store before you buy, for recon. See what brands are available, go home and research what brand you want and what size you need. If in doubt, go a size up, not a size down.

3) That will help you avoid hovering in the aisle trying to make decisions, which although it isn't a big deal, may make you feel more nervous.

4) If shopping at a department store, try to go when it's not busy. Medical supply stores are almost never busy (and everyone there understands about health problems) so any time is OK. If anyone asks if you need help, just say no thank you. No one's ever going to ask you any more than that.

5) Bring a big reusable cloth grocery bag. You can put your selection in it right away so it's minimally visible from the time you take it off the shelf to checkout to carrying it home.

Also, in my experience, people tend to presume I'm buying for my mother. I buy a size bigger than I need, so it *looks* like they wouldn't fit me and they routinely ask for my seniors discount card (I'm 33), clearly presuming I'm buying on behalf of a senior citizen. They do sometimes remember me though. One clerk mildly hounds me to get a seniors card because think of all the money I'd save because I'm in here like every other week. Maybe that was a little creepy, being mentally tracked, but meh.

Anyway, I don't think I'll be going back. Just got a mail delivery of something better than I can get in stores, and hoo boy. I thought I was properly diapered before, but I was wrong!
