Fitted Briefs

Sep 16 2012 05:01 PM

So this is about the Fitted Briefs or Maximum Protection or Protection With Tabs or whatever they have decided to call the only real diaper that they offer.

Recently my waistline has hit the point where I was right on the border between the S/M briefs and the large briefs. I finally decided to buy the large briefs. I was under the impression that just like any other adult diaper there would be a difference in absorbency between the sizes. How wrong I was. Immediately upon unfolding the diaper I noticed that the only difference was the amount of plastic on the wings. Not wanting to trust my visual perception alone I pulled out a medium from my supply and placed it against the large. Low and behold, the functional part of the diaper is exactly the same.

Long story short, you get 20% less diapers in the bag of large than in the bag of medium and the only difference is a couple extra inches of useless non absorbent plastic at the sides.

BRAVO Depend, way to give bang for your buck!

Good post, Dusty. Actually I have been doing an experiment. The store was sold out of mediums so I bought large Realfits. There was more padding I think and I thought I might sleep in them. That didn't work but I tried the large size of my usual diaper (and, yes, the absorbant stuff was much bigger...they weren't Depends) it worked really well. Maybe size does matter. It would seem to make sense that when you are bigger, your bladder is bigger, too, not just your waist.

Boy, Robert, I'm really confused. So you bought some Real Fit underwear, and those didn't work. But you also (at the same time?) bought some diapers in a larger size, and they did? But they're not Depend? So you learned . . . what, exactly? That diapers work better than pull-ups for nighttime wetting?

I think the Real Fit thing was a red herring just to throw us all off, wasn't it? :-D

Sorry, I was a bit vague. I wear pullups during the day but usually need a diaper at night (usually medium Wellness) I experimented with both in larger sizes and found them more absorbant. The pull up was still inadequate for night time, though.
