The Tena Slip Maxi has been one of the most sought after European adult diapers for those in the United States.  Until now, all the people in the US could do was buy super expensive Tena Slips for high prices on sites like Ebay or just look at them on all the European diaper models.  They were extremely hard to get in the United States until Bambino Diapers came along and worked out some sort of deal to import them and sell them in massive quantities to those in the United States.  Why the Tena’s in the United States are so different than the European version is beyond me. But, let me say that the Tena Slip Maxi is an amazing diaper with great features with which I will review below.


The Tena Slip Maxi adult diaper has a very babyish and unique appearance in my opinion.  Though it does not come with baby prints on it – just the added details and design on it definitely give that babyish feel in my opinion as you can see below:

Tena Slip Maxi Adult Diaper

As you can see, this is a medium size diaper and it comes with purple coloring on it with a wetness indicator.  Though I do like Bambino’s All White diaper (Bianco), I do have a thing for diapers with wetness indicators.  I feel they add to that true diaper feeling.  But, that is just my opinion.


The absorbency of the Tena Slip Maxi is truly amazing.  The diaper itself does not feel as bulky as a Bambino or Abena but it sure does hold A LOT.  This is probably due to the fact that the Tena Slip Maxi uses a lot more polymer than pulp in their diaper.  It can easily hold multiple wettings…I personally was able to wet it fully 3-4 times before needing to change it and that was just because it started to sag a bit.  I think one of the greatest features of this adult diaper is the fact that it swells up so nicely.  I think many ABDLs will like this feature and how it feels when it is wet.  It swells up very nicely and gives a very nice soft cushy feeling that I really liked.  Overall, I give the absorbency of this diaper a 9/10.


The fit of the diaper is obviously going to come down to a few factors including your body size, the diaper size you choose and how tightly you put your diaper on.  But, one thing you will notice is that the Tena Slip Maxi has a “European” fit.  I like it – there really is no way to describe the fit honestly, you will either like it or just not prefer it.  I like the fit because it holds to my bottom better and works for me when I don’t want some huge bulky diaper.  They have been perfect for me when I go to the gym or do light exercise because they give me amazing absorbency and protection without all the bulkiness.


The Tena Slip Maxi is a very comfortable diaper  – the inner lining is very soft and I really liked this feature.  It just was very soft against my bottom.  The diaper itself is very flexible to so it moves with your body and you don’t get that stiff diaper feel.  The tapes held VERY WELL and I was able to refasten them if I wanted to make them tighter or looser.

Other Notes

+ It is PLASTIC diaper – NOT cloth
+ Offered by Bambino Diapers w/ free shipping

Overall, the Tena Slip Maxi rates up there with one of my all time favorite diapers because of its uniqueness in features.  It allows you to get a lot of absorbency and very comfortable diaper without the bulkiness of some of the other premium adult diapers.  I love the look of the diaper itself and then combine that with its amazing absorbency and it really does rate up there with my Top 3 all time favorite adult diapers.

    I’m totally lucky to live in the UK and be able to buy these off the shelf.
    I’m also unlucky enough to live in the UK and find it hard to get adult diapers anywhere and when I can, there’s often only Tena Slip to choose from.

    Well what can I say 🙂

    You should find tena maxi very good. (let me know)

    I have to wear and dont tend to wear the maxi ones out for long periods as they really do bulk up. The plus and super are great though under clothes.

    Happy days 😉

    Adrian question for you?
    Would be intresting how tena maxi stand against bambino?

    I have not bought because of cost and get tena free (nhs) but if bambino are really better than tena maxi would like to know. Would be great for nights out when drinking is involved 😉 Less changing 🙂

    I ordered a couple cases of the Tena’s, hope they’re better than the Bambino’s. I had couple samples of the Bambino’s, tried one overnight and ended up with a wet bed pad, plastic pants and undershirt at 5:00 am!
    Normally I wear an Abena M-4 and don’t have to change it till mid-morning, noon or even well after noon.
    I didn’t drink anything extra or change my routine, the Bambino just didn’t hold enough.
    I’m a stomach sleeper though and finding a disposable that works is hard. Wish they made ones with less padding in the rear and more in front for us.

    I’ve been wearing these diapers (in Canada) for over two years. They are — without question, the most comfortable and absorbent diaper I’ve ever worn…and I’ve been wearing diapers since 1984!

    The fit is “trim”, unlike most diapers in N.A. — but you’re right: there’s little to compare them to on this continent.

    I’ve found has the best pricing for us Canadians — since, if I/we order diapers from USA, we pay taxes and import/duty; whereas from EU, we don’t (nor should we).

    So glad to see you back again. I also have tried the Tena Maxi Slip (TMS) diapers and find them to be an excellent product. One thing I like about the TMS over any of the Bambinos is the taping system. To begin with, the tapes are just sticky enough to hold, no more, no less. The “landing strip” seems to be about the same thickness as the rest of the plastic cover, yet it stands up to the stickiness of the tapes, even when it is necessary to be refastened – no tearing. Although I have always liked the comfort and absorbency of Bambino diapers, I have never liked the inadequate taping system, so I hope the folks at Bambino take a few cues from Tena and improve their product. In the meantime, I’m buying TMS diapers – from Bambino, of course!

    On a slightly different topic, I’ve been trying to go “green” lately. Thankfully, a close friend had a baby last year and is cloth diapering her little one. Through her I have discovered reusable cloth diapers of the “pocket” variety. My biggest gripe about cloth diapers in general has been that, when they’re wet, they feel wet. Disposable diapers, like the TMS, have a stay-dry liner that is very comfortable through several wettings. Through my friend, I’ve learned that “pocket” diapers are made with a similar inner liner made of polyester fleece that wicks moisture and thus doesn’t feel wet itself. Recently I’ve tried pocket-style adult diapers from Snap-EZ (, also available from, which are made by a work-at-home mom, and I have been very satisfied – although, as with disposables, I always use a protective (i.e., waterproof) overpant, just to be secure, and besides, I don’t like the sudden, unexpected rush of cold air coming in from a leg gap on either disposables or all-in-one products. Polyurethane-laminate nylon or PUL polyester is nice, but soft plastic works well, too. (I especially like products from – an excellent Canadian company – but there are many options.) Another bonus is that I can use my old cloth diapers as “stuffers.”

    Please keep on sharing. We do enjoy your posts.

    P.S. I just bought a new entertainment stand for my bedroom and have found that the storage spaces are perfect for organizing my diapers!

    Maybe someone there can help me-I am a caregiver for a very elderly female who Is
    Incontinent of urine end I have been trying to find a warmer that will work for her. She uses “Prevail Adult washcloths” to wipe with. Anyone have any suggestions? I would’t think a baby wipes warmer would be big enough–am I right on that?

    The Tena slip is great. I put it right up there with Abrena and it is not thin. I am so glad I can get them now since I have to wear them 24/7

    I agree Tena Slip Maxi’s are awesome! They hold alot and swell up nicely. I’m glad Bambino Diapers finally carries them!

    Over here in the Netherlands we can get them from the pharmacy or qualified online stores. I agree they are pretty good for the day. Very thin and discreet and hold any odour. At night however, the pulp seems to fall apart and they tend to start leaking. Except when I add a booster pad that wicks away the moisture a little bit faster. Have to mention that the tapes are great since they changed them a couple of years ago.

    For nighttime use the Absorin night/ultra is much better in my opinion though.
