I want to see them pics please - maybe put them on a different thread though as you say this is supposed to be about disposables
I can get some pics taken and put up. Do you want to see it with rulers or side by side with another product, etc?

Thanks! It’s been quite a journey!

There are now only a very few things that I have not seen photos of that I remember from growing up.

In particular Boots own disposable training pants and close up shots of the packaging of Sainsbury’s Stages nappies and Asda (I think!) V.I.P. nappies.

It’s funny how the memory has been jogged to.

Still searching for the elusive image that started it all, mind. I suspect that came from a Mothercare catalogue...
I used to love looking through the Mothercare catalogue!

I'm still looking for images of the Boots Stay Dry range from the mid-90s, and if I come across anything, I'll post it here.

Thanks again for this wonderful thread!

Anything please, not bothered with rulers though but maybe side by side with some adult freestyle pants or something well known like L/XL drynites.

Yeah... but Benetton could probably have made adult nappies into a mainstream fashion in the ‘90s, had they tried to...

Re the Benetton Nappies, I've seen pictures of the red ones a few times in both articles and ebay sales and they've always been mentioned as the largest size. That blue size is new to me and probably quite a few others, thats a pearler of an advert pic - nice one!

Not a UK one but we had the exact same nappies in 1989. Anyone care to translate from the German?

That’s new to me as well. Way back when I used to collect a lot I had the red size and it was listed as 18-30kg. I’ve always seen the blue as smaller than red. The plastic on these diapers were rough too, I never liked them.

I think the Peaudouce one might have been a pervy diaper pastie of the sort that was doing the rounds in the early 2000s. There was a similar looking one of a unisex DryNites age 10-17 in red which never existed in real life.

70-110cm waistband 40kg weight range doesn’t add up.
I don't know. I got pastie ads fake package of Huggies Pull-Ups' Big Kids featuring Olsen Twins, but the image is very too small. Did you large image?

Yeah, that one was definitely fake. There were a lot of things like that going round in the early 2000s.

And what about images of fake/pastie ads including Drynites 10-17, etc.
What about them? I recall many of them were of questionable quality and/or content.

If you want to set up a separate thread for them, please feel free.

This one is for genuine 80s/90s product pics or info.

The DryNites 10-17 pastie I referred to is in this thread, however...

Yeah, fake ads are probably a bit dodgy, I’d only consider posting them if the person pictured is clearly over 18, and even then, the picture may not have been used with the subject’s consent, or may come from a pay site etc.
