Exercise is an extremely important thing that I participate in daily whether it is running, yoga, cycling, walking, jogging, etc. I am an exercise fanatic and try to stay in good shape. So, naturally I get the question – well how do you exercise in adult diapers without people noticing or just how do you exercise in general while wearing an adult diaper? Very good questions but the answer is quite simple. First, people do notice when you are wearing a diaper – but you can obviously minimize the bulk by choosing a thinner adult diaper. I go with the Secure Plus Adult Diaper because they are one of the best absorbent but high quality diaper on the market but not bulky at all…lots of SAP – so good absorbency compared to store brand diapers. You can also choose to wear a longer shirt to avoid people seeing the outline as much but I usually don’t go to that great of an extent. If somebody asks you about it or whatever – just act like its not a big deal and just say you wear it for protection because you have problems with “leaking” or something along those lines. It is important that you stand confident in your answer and act like its NO BIG DEAL…because the less of a deal it is to you the more accepting they are apt to be about it.
Second, as far as HOW I exercise in adult diapers – nothing fancy really. For running at faster paces I will either not wear a diaper if its for a short distance and just bet on not having problems or I will wear a thin diaper or a couple times I have gone with a pullup (rare). This reduces the chance of chaffing or adding too much weight or discomfort when running at faster paces. When I am cycling or weight lifting – I usually go with a thicker diaper because it serves as extra padding (cyclists know what I am talking about) for sitting on those tiny little seats. So, usually that is a Bambino, Secure X-Plus, Molicare, or Abena X-plus for those times…plus you are more likely to have an accident under low exercising conditions than high exercising conditions. For jogging or walking – I usually go with a thinner diaper like Secure Plus…I have used store brand diapers like Depends or CVS brand adult diapers in the past but have had problems with leaking so I try to avoid those if at all possible. You gotta find what works for you though.
The important thing with exercising in diapers is to make sure you always use vaseline or something similar to it because it allows for reduced chaffing and just makes everything more comfortable in general. So, go out and buy yourself a big jar of vaseline and put generous amounts in the crotch area and butt area before you exercise to help with any discomfort. Or as Peter likes to call it – “lubing up” before exercising. Haha – hopefully this helped some of you even though some of it is common sense..
