Slomo Posted April 3 Share Posted April 3 (edited) I've been incontinent for decades. Along the way I've picked up on some things that may help others. Got some of your own? Add them in. -A thick diaper that's done its job is WAY less noticeable than a thin one that's leaked. -Black pants hide wet spots and make it harder to see your diaper outline. -Plastic backed diapers contain smells the best, and tend to sag much less than cloth. -A diaper cover will help you notice any leaks before a wet spot appears. -A PUL diaper cover will also silence most plastic diapers. -Premium/thick diapers actually cost less "per day" than thin ones. Mostly because you'll need changing less often, and will go through fewer diapers each day. -Remove your diapers from their packaging for at least a week before needing them. They come compressed, and allowing them to expand some means they will absorb and wick much better when used. -Fold the diaper in half length-wise. This will create a center channel that help with absorption and also removes the folds from packaging. -When you do get a good fit, try to memorize where the tapes ended up at. And next time put the tapes in that same spot. No more worrying about getting a good fit, and no more having to readjust. -When putting on a diaper, avoid touching or rubbing where the tapes should end up at. Otherwise you're depositing some of the oil on your hands to that spot, which will weaken the tape stickiness. Also, once stuck on, give them a quick rub. This will help improve their grip and prevent the tapes from popping off later. -Staying well hydrated means your pee will smell much less. -Wear one pant size larger, with a comfort or relaxed fit, and you'll be able to hide your diaper much better. -People generally don't stare at your crotch, and genrally won't notice your diaper as much as you think. -And finally, wearing a diaper is neither illegal nor immoral. No matter your reason. You really can wear them without worrying of being caught or found out. And if you are, just say it's personal and you don't want to talk about it. No explanations or reasons are necessary on your part (unless you want to). Edited April 3 by Slomo 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
