Diaper Fit and Confidence

The best way to find a good fit for a diaper is by making sure you have the right size. Usually most adult diapers go by waist size and weight. It is kind of critical to make sure they fit well around your legs too for fewer leaks. The better fitting diaper you can get the better confidence you will have.

  • Nice picture!!  😉   

    My 40 year old daughter is very small.  She use to wear Small Attends, but they are too small now.  I am trying to find something similar, but it seems like all of the diapers go from small to medium.....and the medium is like 44 inches wide.  She swims in them.  Can you suggest an alternative????

      Melody Reed hi Melody and thank you for the comment on my picture. I would probably suggest you buy or look for youth sized diapers. I know tranquility sells a youth size I am pretty certain on that. They are a smaller size then small and they might be the best option for your daughter most likely. 😀

  • You want to make sure too that the diaper covers every area it should. Front middle back. The leg cuffs on a diaper shouldn’t be always pinching into you’re skin. Sometimes that can be hard not to have happen. The waist should also be snug but not too over tight and not really loose.

  • I find the best fitting daper is one that has a stand  up rim around the legs, so you do not risk having it leak.  So far I've been very lucky with the fit.

  • Go for Youth Size. And no, actually they shouldn't ever pinch your skin. If that happens, try a different size/brand altogether. Diapers should never pinch and should be adjusted/replaced if they do. Your diaper/nappy should fit like a normal pair of underwear, with exception that the sides will be more snug to your legs/hips. Still, however, they should never pinch. Different hips/butt sizes/lengths/curvatures/etc can cause different diapers to fit differently depending on the person using them. Women have different shaped hips than men as well, so you always have to adjust and make fit according to individual user vs individual brands.

  • Youth size is too small for my daughter.  She has gained some weight.  I have tried almost every brand, and am still not satisfied.

      Melody Reed Tranquility has a few that may help like the ATN and the newer EliteCare diapers they have. Depending on fit vs leaks, other good ones I have had are the Seni series like the Super Quatro and the Super Quatro Plus(Amazon). The Depends Protection with Tabs though are one of the best cuz you can adjust any of the 6 tabs for a better fit all around

      Betty Mills I did in fact take part in the Seni Free Sample recently for the cotton-backed, Super Quatro Adult Briefs "with 4 Tape Tabs". I will in fact be doing a separate review of them after I have had a chance to purchase an actual package/case of them for better review. The 2 samples were great, don't get me wrong, but to get a real feel for a diaper, one has to use them pretty much 24/7 or as needed for the specific case *i.e. nighttime use* and I feel it's best to test the Free Sample, and if you think it is a good enough test, go for a package of 10+ to get a better feel for them on a more regular basis, and if all else fails, give her a final test on a half case/case *usually depends on a specific company sending 30-96 being half case or full case* and get a good full run out of the product. If, by then, you haven't got a proper feel for them, move on to another diaper.

      In my history, I have tried many different companies, brands, distributors, etc, and I'm still on the hunt myself for a better diaper. Not necessarily jumping headfirst into the ABDL category with the 4500ML capacity diapers, but something less discreet and for personal, medically required use, not "entertainment purposes" like ABDL products with cute prints and whatnot are normally aimed at. I just want a non leaking size 34" diaper, plastic-backed, that hugs all 360 degrees of the hips/groin, and does everything possible to prevent leakage, including standing leg guards and stretchable waistbands, which is why I actually promote the 6-Tab Depends Protection with Tabs Diaper that they recently re-did.

      Betty Mills As a victim of sexual abuse from toddler to age 9 by my biological father, I have spent my entire life in diapers. Needed for both forms of incontinence, urinary and fecal due to irreparable, permanent damage on both sides from the trauma. With the inability to feel anything coming in the first place, its sometimes hard to notice when a product is "over-capacity" and can lead to embarrassing incidents in public that are beyond one's control. Not having the muscle strength or "sensation" to notice when I "have to go" basically leads to just an "open gate effect" where nothing in my body actually tries to hold pee or feces back and have no control or muscle recognition to even do so in the first place. This leads to having to limit being out in public, making one's life rough and lonesome without a real way to go out in public and enjoy life as a "normal person without incontinence of any form" would.

      Some have "IBS" to blame, forms of irritable bowel syndrome, that's understandable they have to stay home/near a toilet and can't really go anywhere. Sometimes not having to do a #2 for up to 0-24 hours "apparently, based on experience", it is literally impossible to know when to be ready for it, especially in my case. Everyone uses diapers for different medical purposes, some of us have more restrictions that need a better diaper. Basically, it would be nice to see an adult diaper created that has the same 360 degree fit/protection that i have seen baby diapers have and hold in the past.

      Melody Reed Adult Baby Diaper Lovers. Generally heavily padded diapers holding usually 4500 to 6000mL of fluids with no need for booster pads in most cases. However, these diapers are generally spendy and not medical approved.

    • Scott Keyser LIke you I can't really tell when I'm eliminating.  It just happens.  I pee into the front of the brief and soil in the center and going up to rear.  Soemtimes this wakes me up and sometimes I can sleep through it.    I don't sleep with other people and use gary pants over briefs so smell is contained.

      Andrew hola  I was punished as a child for wetting the bed, mother not knowing the truths of my father til I was 9. And even then did not want to help or aid in the situation. Forced to steal diapers or mow lawns to purchase myself, they thought later, even after the sexual abuse, and the bedwetting both, I must be growing into some fetish of sorts. Them spanking me and taking the diapers and punishing me, then leading to me wetting my pants and bed again, I was accused of intentionally doing it as a form of arrogance towards my parents. They couldnt understand that without me wearing them and having to hide it from them, it happened anyways. My brain and body does not work the way most do. PTSD from the memories of the abuse have continued to make my condition worse with no chance of it stopping. Doctors tried everything from blaming me to deciding to help me but in the end, it is all psycho-neuro related and is not something that pills have been able to fix either. The pills they thought would work, weakened my bladder even more over the 6 weeks and the damage was even more irreparable than the original trauma. To save face, the doctor stopped offering to help and started signing paperwork to get the state to help provide supplies. Literally always had urinary/bowel problems, getting the people around you to understand and not make fun of you and whatnot is the hard part.

  • In honesty it's hard to find a nonleaking diaper and sometimes it is beneficial to use booster pads in slightly larger diapers for more absorbency. On a 32" waist you could go for the 36-44 waist size and add one of the super absorbent booster pads, helping take up some of the rest of the empty area in the diaper.

      The pullon underwear has no legit way to stop the leaks actually and in these cases, it is generally recommended to use tab style briefs instead, allowing you to secure the legcuffs better and more snug to prevent leaks. Ones with standing leg guards inside the leg cuffs help too.

    • Scott Keyser Sorry to be so slow to answer your question.   I've tied most of the ABDL diapers because I figured they would have the capacity and fit to prevent leaks.

      But the crinkly noise of the plastic-backed diapers prevents my discrete need since my friends are all "vanilla".   And I'm not into the AB kink. I'm just a DL because of frequent incontinence.

      What works best for me is Sam's Club Member's Mark Total Protection Adjustable briefs.  In addition to fitting well, being cloth backed and therefore quiet, they hold 3 to 5 bladders-full.  And they cost 47c each.
