New Depend Briefs
I liked Depends maximum night time briefs with the 3 tap tabs , when the elastic band worked and they still made the Small size . When they stopped making small and replaced it with the S/M I was forced to wear a brief that did not fit right , Got use to it , then they changed the product again , the elastic waste band was un-functional , But what Could I do ? . So I was stuck wearing a product that didn't fit and due to the change in the waist band I found they would leak from time to time .
Now they change the product completely , instead of 3 taps its 2 and no plastic backing , Bought a pack , and they were totally unusable , It was like wearing a wet deflated air bag . they leaked at the sides on a constant bases very uncomfortable and with sagging one could tell I was wearing a brief ( Lucky for me I was home ) .
I read many discussion boards and it seemed that Kimberly Clark co , was blowing people off , and not addressing the real issue , and not Listening to what us customers want .
I never asked to be incontinent nor is it something I advertise . So why is Kimberly Clark so intent on making a substandard product ?
I require a product with a plastic backing and these new depends don't have that , I cant wear this product , It leaks at the sides , sags I need to keep adjusting the tabs because the product loosens.
Kimberly Clark keeps claiming that their cloth backed product dose not leak , yet my experience and many others say differently '
Please bring back the 3 tape tab PLASTIC BACKED BRIEF . The only reason people who have complete and total Incontinence used the Depends is because the plastic backed product was far superior to the breath able briefs that other companies make .
Its a mater of simple science , cloth is no substitute for plastic . once the wax coating on the cloth backed products gets heated by the skin it opens small holes and they leak .
Now that Depends briefs are no longer suitable for my needs I am using Tranquility ATN and the German made Attends. If Kimberly Clark co wants me and others to start buying their briefs again here is what they need to do
- separate sizing for example . Small , Medium , Large , Extra Large
- Needs better elastic waist band like the ones on the 2000 product
-Full PLASTIC BACKING that is thicker then they use to be for refastening ( simply put a lot of people require a plastic backed product , If they don't then the pull-up option is available )
- Have thicker padding that extends to the ends of the wings , for side sleepers or so one can lean while sitting and not worry about the brief leaking ( side leaks are a major issue with the new product and they do leek at the back and crotch )
Do this and you may get your customers back .
One other issue and its a major issue . Your questioner , It seems odd that when you ask which products we use , you don't list Full briefs , that concerns me . And when one uses your " what product is right for me , it never brings up the full briefs . Its almost as if KC is pushing the pull-ups and pads .
On all the forums and boards everyone who used the 3 tape Briefs have nothing good to say about the New and unimproved Briefs .
If KC's response to others input is an indication of how they intend not to listen to us , This message will be blown off with a standard company message , trying to defend their inferior product .
Only reason I am bothering to post this , is in hopes that KC will realize they made a mistake and correct it , and actually improve their Maxim night time Brief instead of pushing for a cloth product that no one wants .
I Gave your product a fair try over a weeks time period and they simply don't meet my needs .
I will use Tranquility and the Attends sold in Germany ( both plastic backed plastic backing is what I want and many others ) as I am willing to spend a little more for a better product . Until KC makes a product that suits my needs I wont be buying depends , sorry but I cant risk having leaks , its embarrassing enough to be incontinent .
