For those of you that live near a beach or enjoy going to a beach and that wear diapers know that wearing a diaper out on the beach is the ultimate act of bravery if you have never done it before. It can be an experience to remember if you can muster up the courage and bravery to step out onto the beach in a diaper.

I love the beach and wish I could buy a beach house and live at the beach every day of my life. Hopefully, one day that will be a possibility. Over the years I have had to become comfortable being out on a beach in just a diaper or a diaper under some sort of bathing suit. I have done all types. I have worn a diaper by itself with just a bathing suit top. I have worn a bikini style bathing suit with just the bottoms over top of the diaper and I have also worn a one-piece bathing suit over my diaper. It just sort of depends on the weather conditions and my mood I guess and sometimes how many people are out on the beach.

I have had to get use to it over the years and I will be honest that typically it is not a big deal to me but even I sometimes get a little “shy” out on a beach in just a diaper if there are a lot of people. I don’t really like ALL that attention I guess as it is not always the most “everyday” thing people see. So, if there are a lot of people than I tend to be a little respectable and wear something at least over top of it. But, if the beach is not that busy than I tend to really not care too much as its sometimes refreshing just being out in just a diaper. Here is a picture from a few years ago out on my favorite beach!

But, honestly in my hundreds of experiences of wearing a diaper on the beach (I am a beach girl at heart) – I have had no really bad experiences to speak of. I mean sure you get a few looks but honestly most people don’t even really notice or pay attention unless of course you somehow want to flaunt it. If you can just get past that most people are not going to associate it with a “fetish” but 99% of the time will associate it with a medical condition regardless of who you are than it really doesn’t seem like such a huge deal.

I have had a few people ask me questions about it but they were respectable. Some people are honestly just curious and want to know what it feels like. I mean I am not the best at describing it in person and I am by no means the bravest person in the world and still get somewhat shy about it in person when I am this “exposed” per se. But, in the end if they are respectable about it than I really don’t have issues.

Of course you will get the few younger middle school or high school aged kids that want to poke fun but honestly you get over it and its rare. You will never see them again in your life and they have no idea who you are. I mean if you just act like its not a huge “weird” thing than most people just honestly don’t even pay any attention.

If there are a lot of people on the beach then I tend to wear a one piece Nike swimsuit I have that really makes it so there a slight diaper bulge and part of the leg lining and butt of the diaper sticks out some but that is really it and is not that big of a deal. It is just a little more respectable I guess to other people when there are thousands of people on the beach. Just my opinion.

Note – this is not a post or encouragement to go purposely be an idiot and flaunt a diaper in a disrespectful way on a beach in public. I do not condone that.

    That is so cool. I think the problem is some guys like to go out in public and flaunt it. Which cause so much problems for the rest.

    I’ve worn to quiet beaches like you do….if the beach is busy, I wear a swimsuit over my diaper. I try to get to a section of the beach well away from everyone, especially kids.

    First off, I commend you for your bravery.
    My question, though, how is a guy to dress in this situation? Would one wear trunks over the diaer or can one wear just the diaer?
    I have not gone to the beach in years and I do not know the rotocole for such instances. Any advice would be welcomed.

    Talk about brave! I don’t know whether I’d be that brave as to walk around the beach wearing nothing but a diaper.

    First….lets not be fooled. We would be treated so differently as men. Don’t risk it, guys, not worth it. I have gone to the beach in my board shorts and have worn a diaper underneath. I’ve had no problems. I thinking laying out tanning with a diaper on versus walking around is different. I also noticed her beach is not very busy. With the water so close incontinent issues are easy to deal with unless its fecal in which case most would not feel up for the beach. However, love the post, pics, and suggestions.

      I don’t mind wearing diapers, but I wouldn’t wear without anything over them.

    We went to Orange beach in june I wore publicly but in a off seculded area for fishing and lite swimming by one of the parks. No one really got mad but a aolder gentleman that was fishing beside us asked quite a few questions, nothing out of line just asked. Since I did wear a shirt that covered half the diaper it wasnt really that noticalbe unless you were right up on me. It turned out to be a good trip

    That’s why if your wearing your diapers in public or on the beach, you want to do it in a place without kids or teenagers.

    • Jason July 29, 2013 at 3:56 pm - Reply

      To Nicky and Geoffrey. I agree. You want to have a place where you can change your diapers (nappies, etc.) where other people can’t see you doing it.

    It’s going to attract more (and probably more negative) attention for men in large part because of the shape: a diaper is basically the triangular brief-shape rather than the squared-off shorts shape, which is an unusual style for men’s swimwear in general.

    You can’t even wear a brief-style Speedo without expecting some double-takes and maybe some shouted rudeness; add in the oddness of a diaper and it’s definitely a recipe for attention.

    I usually throw a pair of shorts over the diaper or just go without on the beach (the latter is almost easier if I’m swimming a lot; a diaper is really only useful or comfortable if I’m going to be sitting out of the water for a long time). A diaper on its own just isn’t quite enough covering for me (or most guys) to feel comfortable in it. We’ve got a LOT of cultural programming telling us “naked except for trunk-shaped shorts good; naked except for triangular briefs bad,” regardless of whether the triangle is padded or not.

    Excatley Nickey my kids and his kid have known for years I wear diapers. But i would never show up at something like the YMCA and wear diapers in the pool that wouldnt be right. Im at a beach were people are naked on the other end of the beach and doing surfing. lol so I find it acceptable to wear a t shirt that covers 70 percent of the diaper and not flaunting in front of kids.

    Hello there. Nice picture of you on the beach. Depending on one diaper frame of mind and no pun intended to Depends, that would almost qualify for a reusable swim type diaper than a disposable when at the beach. If anyone would get in the water with a disposable, it would most likely fill with water and not be usable and likely to fall off and that would not be fun. If I was out in public at the beach in a diaper, I would have a run of the mill swim trunks on over it and if the waist band of the diaper is out and didn’t know, I wouldn’t think much of it. I’ll also say if you see anyone in diapers at the beach then they are all white for the most part. It would be crazy to see any of the Bambino prints or ABU Cushies diapers would get more of a reaction than you plain white for diapers.
    I also agree with what others have said here on this topic as well be not exposing any kids to this. Be it a local YMCA or in a very active beach with lots of kids around. If you happen to get caught, just hope for the best and just laugh if off depending on the situation.
    On slightly different note, don’t say that wouldn’t be blast for AB’s for sand in your diaper while making a sand castle and such. Take it easy. Dragon-Knight

    But how do you go in the water without it swelling and becoming useless? And then where do you change?

    • Jason August 4, 2013 at 10:43 am - Reply

      That can be a problem. I’ve done that a few times.

    It’s why if you wear diapers on the beach, make sure you don’t act like an idiot and draw attention. I have worn diapers on the beach and I stayed in them after I got in and after they swelled up

      @ Nicky

      I agree. I rarely wear diapers to the beach unless I need to poop. The toilets there are filthy at best.

    That’s why I try to go to a nude beach, so I don’t have to wear diapers. if I am at a clothed beach, I’ll wear diapers under my 1 piece swimsuit

    I see nothing wrong with men wearing only a diaper at the beach, I’ve seen many people from Europe who wear paper thin speedoes that show off their privates down there very easily and nobody says anything. xD A diaper covers way more and does a good job of hiding your privates. It’s just “different” so people think of it differently.

    Has Peter worn only a diaper at the beach? If so, what reaction have you both received and do you have any pictures? Also, if he hasn’t, why not? Most DL’s are male and it’s good to keep things in perspective from the males point of view as well on this site. This sight is great for support and advice. However, keep in mind the reaction a female may receive verses a male will be different when wearing on the beach as they take advice from this site?

    I am a life long nudist that wears diapers.

    I have gone to many nude beaches and when i get undressed i take off my diaper instead of underwear. i only wear and walk around openly when there are very few people around. or i am of the fetish part of the beach.

    Been doing it for 30 years and only a few people have ask me about it and most were adult bedwetters or had to wear themselves.

    I wear Bambino Blancos that are thick and many of these people want to know where to get them.

    That’s like me as well, I’m a life long nudist and I wear diapers as well. I wear diapers when I can’t be nude such as in public places. When I am at a Nude beach or Nude resort, I simply stay nude.

    I wear swim trunks over mine no one really notices but the waistband of the diaper is visible up close. Being from Gulfport, Mississippi I loved going to the beach but since I live in Nebraska no beach here.:(

    I have never had the opportunity to be just in a diaper at the beach. I only wear cloth, so when the chance does arise, I will, since it won’t be ruined by the water, and it does cover more than a speedo, that’s for sure

    Hiya Adrian,

    I am also incontinent, and face the exact same dilemma. The past summer, my better half and myself spend a few day trips at the beach (clothing optional ones at that). She was recovering from surgery as well as chemo/radiation during the immediate summer. But, at the end of September, we booked a B and B on the islands close to the nudie beach. I spend some fun time at the “theme park” but for the most part…was quite conservative. When we walked over to the nudie beach…I was diapered, and fully clothed when we arrived. I did a slow strip, trying to acclimatise to the surroundings. I still had my shirt, and diaper on, when we walked over to check the temp of the water. When we were walking back, I pulled my shirt off, and was just in my diaper. Funny enough, my better half wanted me to bring sand toys, and play with just my diaper on. She is shy normally…but when there at the beach..she seems to be more open…which isn’t a bad thing. Anyhow, I was naked for most of the day. When we started to pack up, and I put on a fresh diaper…a few of the folks near us came over to talk. I was packing up, strolling around in my diaper…and there wasn’t any mention, or “freak” factor about it. We are just normal people, with a different type of underwear. 🙂 My better half, although she loves me in diapers (I have a gingham printed cloth diaper that she LOVES when I wear it) she doesn’t wear/use/need them.

    Since becoming incontinent (due to surgery) I have learned to only worry about myself. No matter what we do to comply to others…we will always be different in someone’s eyes. So, I don’t worry about what other people think….I just worry about my immediate friends, family, and myself.

    Love your posts….and the pictures. Very vivid, and clear. Thank you for all that you have shared!
