Today I was able to get diapered and I experienced the difference between a good and bad diapering. I started this morning by using a cloth stuffer inside an Attends Breathable Brief. I bought a couple packs of these Attends awhile back at a thrift store and while they were super cheap they are also super bad diapers.
With nothing but the diaper on I went about the house doing chores and what not. Multiple times the bottom tapes came undone and the tops had to be readjusted several times. I had only wet it a bit at this point. I put on some pants and went to town to pick up a few items. When I bent over to pick something up I felt the bottom tapes come undone again. I didn’t really wet in feat of a leak.
I took the diaper off at home and found that almost every bit of padding had migrated between the legs and the tapes wouldn’t really stay tight. This was about an hour and half into wearing it and just a little wetting. Wearing something like this is a joke. It’s absorption is laughable, it’s so uncomfortable. I can’t imagine it working for anyone. I decided to try a better diaper and went all out for a better experience.
I folded a very thin home made cloth diaper with two thin cloth stuffers. It’s probably good enough for a couple wettings but very light. Then I put on a Molicare Super over it. When it comes to good diapers I’ve tried the Molicare Super is one of my favorites. It’s super comfortable. The cloth diapers become saturated and spread the wetness out around the diaper. Since they are tightly pinned on they help keep the wetness from sagging as much. As they get full the diaper underneath starts soaking it up.
Afterwards I put on my homemade onesie. This is really the key. Anyone who wears diapers should have a onesie. Quality diapers like Abena and Molicare work well without them but so much better with them. Even cheap diapers like my Attends work much better when the padding is held in place by a onesie.
With my onesie on I did some more chores, then did 20 minutes on the elepitical, afterwards doing a few sets of deadlifts and some other lifting. All the while I was drinking lots and lots of water, way more then I needed. In an hour the diaper was wet, way wetter then the Attends before but still exactly where it should be. It was much more comfortable and two hours later it’s soaked. The front padding is saturated and beyond squishy, but its staying put and the moisture is finding it’s way to the back of the diaper. I could probably wear this another hour.
Saddly the Molicare doesn’t have the super thick gel padding that Abenas and ABDL diapers like Tykables have. This diapers performe like baby diapers in that they just keep swelling and swelling. The Molicare defeintly has less padding, but still performs far better then a generic diaper.
