Yesterday was one of those “All In” AB days. In the morning I got diapered up, put one a Onesie, and then onesie pajamas and went to Wal-Mart for some shopping. Of course I was wearing regular clothes over the PJs. You could never tell what I had on underneath. I spent a lot of time looking at the various incontinence pads and bought some of the Men’s Guards pads that are 14 for $3 they could be my new go to stuffer. I almost bought some of the Equate brand Overnight bladder pads for women, they look really big, and you get 30 for 8 dollars.
Anyway went out to the woods to take some pictures afterwards, I was in a place that is pretty popular but in the middle of the week, early in the morning I didn’t expect anyone to show up, and if they did I was pretty sure I’d have ample warning. So I took off my street clothes and ran around in my Onesie for awhile. In hindsight this was probably really stupid, just because I thought no one was around doesn’t mean that no one is around.
Then I got this idea, it was cool, but not freezing and I decided to take everything off but my diaper and get in the water and see how long I could handle it. The answer wasn’t long, maybe 30 seconds. Luckily I brought a spare diaper to change into, and the onesie felt so awesome on my cold damp skin.
After this little adventure I went to the thrift store. I was walking around and spotted something that nearly floored me. I big pink leotard, it looked really big and thought it would fit. I also spotted an opened package of girls XL Goodnites for 1 and then I decided to look at the shoes. I’ve always wanted a pair of heels that would fit, but finding some big enough for my big feet wouldn’t be easy. I’m a little bit turned on by cross dressing sometimes, especially cute girl clothes. I found a pair of platform style shoes, they weren’t heels but they were several inches taller in the back then the front and size 12 womens.
One I got home I was in a state of near bliss. With a Goodnite on I put the leotard on, it was tight but fit, then I put on the sandals which were very tight. Walking around the house in this outfit I felt like a big bedwetting girl playing dress up before bed. No pictures though from this, maybe later.
I’m going to be working my way through my HDIS variey pack and giving my impressions of the diapers.
Lets start with Attends with waistband. The second package of adult diapers I ever purchased was Attends back around 99 when they were available in Wal-Marts. These were the Proctor and Gamble brand and were really great. More on them another day.
Attends are an all together differnent creature now. They are quite a bit cheaper, selling by the case for around 76 cents per diaper. They are plastic backed and they have a similar waistband to the old ones, and 3 tapes though the tapes are different. The tapes were very good and once stuck for awhile would not come unstuck at all. The first thing that I noticed about Attends when I first tried them was how much more roomy they were. Where Depends seemed to be designed to fit more like Underwear Attends were snug around the legs but a bit puffy everywhere else, more roomy and thicker. They are still designed to be more roomy then other diapers I think but they no longer have the thicker padding. They were a bit more noticeable under my pants from their larger size, but far more noticeable was the plastic rustling, they are really noisy. The abosrbent core isn’t stuck very well to the plastic and they make a ton of noise.
I wore an Attend for about an hour working outside then a couple more hours in the house. At first it seemed a bit more absorbent then a Depends, but soon I realized I was wrong. I wet while sitting on the couch; when I got up I was surprised to see two big wet spots where it had ran out the sides, at this point that diaper wasn’t really that wet but it had already failed. THere are no leak guards and I believe that leak guards really help when a diaper is flooded with a larger volume, but there are no leak guards in lots of diapers that perform better than this.
As I continued to wear the Attend and be mindful of sitting on the furniture it became to resemble wearing a big plastic bag filled with goop. The abosrbing material all packed in the middle and formed a big goopy wad.
XP medical has the Attends maximum capacity at 18 oz. Even though its the cheapest diaper they sell, its the most expensive per ounce of capacity.
For an incontinent persons purposes I think the Attends was pretty horrible. Noisy, hard to hide, prone to leak and needing to be changed after a couple of wettings. For an adult baby’s purposes it could be an OK diaper. If you want to experience a leaky, saggy, noisy diaper that is hard to hide and feels like wearing a big plastic bag this is the diaper to go with.
So here we have a diaper girl in a very cute onesie with a very obvious diaper underneath, she’s sitting on a baby blanket and drinking from a bottle which makes the picture even better, but then there is the kid in the left hand corner taking a nap in the chair. It could be a life size doll, its kind of hard to tell but I think its a young kid. That’s just really weird. I thought maybe it was like a halloween thing, but I doubt it. I’m wondering how old this girl is, she may be younger then she looks, maybe that’s her little brother and its normal for her to play baby in the middle of the floor while someone takes her picture?
