What’s the deal with pull-ups?

So I have tried some pull-up style diapers it just does not do it for me.



1st you can’t adjust the fit.

2nd you have to undress to change them.

3rd they keep wandering down always pulling them up.

4th pulling a soggy pull-up down my legs vs pulling tapes of has no appeal!

5th the wide stretchy waistband is anything but comfy.

So here is the question for those who prefer pull-ups. Why? What am I missing?

you forgot to mention how low the rise of the padding in both the front and back

Also don't like pullups
the padding doesn't go nearly high enough
it's like they took the kids design and scaled up only the sides and didn't expand the padding

to be honest I think some kids pullups have more padding than adults

It’s not just padding, even dry they are not comfortable for me.

All kids pull-ups have padding that exrends front waistband to the back waistband.
I've said this before. Disposable underwear were designed for women and are still designed for women, and even then they are impractical as far as the padding goes. Some mens disposable underwear are designed with the front padding extended higher but once again they are impractical for sleepwear. Pull-ups were never designed for men.

Pull-ups are not diapers.⬇️

Because I can fit goodnites very comfortable, I’m their target size. I love playing around potty training age, even sometimes feel like a preschooler who is just about done training so I keep them mostly dry. I can use one for the whole day because I can pull down to go potty - can’t do that easily with a diaper. I also can’t afford much so it’s either pull ups plus going potty mostly or it’s one diaper (if I even have any … very rare) but then you are using them and it’s full and done quickly. A box of 34 goodnites is $27 on sale, most 10 packs of adult diapers are $30-40 ….. so pull ups offer a LOT more playtime for price. Much more discrete too. If I had the money would I use them as much? no probably not but they work for now

Never tried pull-ups. If you don’t mind my asking what is your waist size?
 
The only real advantage of pull-ups is being able to use the toilet without having to retape or completely dispose of the diaper, as well as how easy they are to get (corpos think we want discretion, not protection).

The sagging issue is also very bad on pull-ups, exasperated by the volatile waistband which can fail if there's too much pee in it. At that point you would need plastic pants, and if you need plastic pants, you're probably better off with a taped diaper with plastic pants and a onesie over it.

Working them gently I can pull down even a tight diaper and pull it back up to use the toilet.

24”, hips 31”
 
I first tried using pullups(the really thick kind) and they just did not cut it for my severe urinary incon. It really depends on ones unique absorbency needs.
I immediately resorted to tabbed diapers and have had fabulous results with them.🙂

Not if you have women hips …. Waist is much smaller so if I stretch to fit over hips they it will never go back tight enough, pull ups do ;)

Faire enough, I have very much the opposite problem I am a fairly slim guy and not much of a but! On a good day with normal underwear and no belt I won’t make tens steps without my jeans falling to my ankles. Reading your comment make me think I might just be the problem I have with pull-ups. Thanks for the reply!
