Adult diapers come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Everyone has different access levels to certain adult diapers depending on things like where they live and how much money they have and what sort of resources they have available to them. Some people only know what it is like to wear store bought diapers from places like CVS, Walgreens and Wal-Mart. All they know are the typical thin adult diaper like Depends. Anyone who has ever tried on a regular basis store bought diapers knows the disadvantages of them. They are typically only good for one wetting and even then sometimes they leak. This is a huge worry that can lead to some very embarrassing moments if you are not careful.
Yes, I know store bought diapers are cheaper and more accessible. But, that is just about the only advantage.
Many people don’t like the very public way of having to go to a store and buy adult diapers. It causes your heart to race and you start to worry if someone you know is going to find out your secret. What will the cashier think? What will other customers think? All these things start running through your mind. These are worries that you do not have to deal with if you have the ability to order online.
But, besides the mental aspect of buying diapers – there are the physical characteristics that truly changed my opinion on why purchasing premium adult diapers is better in the long run both on your purse (or wallet) as well as your own sanity.
A lot of people see the cheap price of store brand diapers and think they are getting a great deal. The fact is that each one of those diapers barely holds any fluid at all and is not meant for what most ABDLs or diaper lovers actually use them for. They are meant for people that are incontinent and do not fully void in them at one time and typically multiple times. So, you have the ability to change your diaper 3,4,5 and even 6 times a day. So, you can possibly go through 5 or 6 of these cheap diapers a day if you are trying to avoid leaking (if that is even possible with some of these diapers). So, that pack of 24 adult diapers you bought at the store may be gone in a week or less depending on how often you use them. Plus, you also have to deal with the mental aspect of the fear of leaking all the time. I hate leaking – it is a pet peeve of mind and always has been. I use to get so upset with the diapers my mom use to buy me when I was a teenager that were cheap and I would leak sometimes. I would get so mad. She eventually learned to buy the better brand of diapers or buy boosters that we could put in the diaper to help with that issue.
Premium adult diapers like Abena, Bambino diapers, Tena Slip Maxi, Dry 24/7, etc while they may seem expensive at first – when you truly analyze what you are getting with each of these adult diapers you will see the cost saving benefits. One of these diapers can usually take a minimum of 2-3 full voids and still be completely fine. You can technically go a whole day in 1 premium adult diaper. This will save you money in the long run as well as give you some piece of mind that you won’t leak every time you have to use the diaper.
Plus these premium adult diapers are usually more comfortable, have better features, and typically cuter if you are into that sort of thing.
I learned my lesson a long time ago and started going exclusively towards the best brands of adult diapers on the market and I haven’t looked back. Peter feels the same way and is actually the one that turned me on to the top brand diapers. Before I was using a combo of store brand diapers and Attends with waistband (which aren’t bad but definitely not anything like the premium adult diapers).
Just something to think about next time you are looking to make your next purchase of adult diapers. Cheaper is not always better. Especially, in the case of adult diapers.
