Plastic pants

Andrei Community Member July 04, 2007
  • I was wondering if anyone has tried using plastic pants with a disposable diaper.

    I use disposable diapers at night and am experiencing some leakage at times.Cloth diapers are not an option.

    If you have used plastic pants with disposable diapers, please let me know the results.

    Thank you

      Thanks for the great comment I had not heard of the snap on style. I am now my grandpa's caretaker and he has complained about the sweating and I have not been able to help with that. He has been wearing the adult disposable diapers but I think the plastic pants would help with the leakage.

    Hi

     When I wore disposables on a regular basis I used to pull a pair of plastic panties over the top of them this helped hold my double night time nappy in place I also wore a pair of my brothers nylon boxer shorts over them just to  help keep them secure. As I wore 2 nappies together at night leaking was never a problem.

    I have found polyurethane pants to be the most protective. They feel like rubber but are thin + soft. Fetware and a number of other companies make them. I wet copiously and have been secure in my poly pants.

    You should also ensure that u wear plastic-coated diapers and not cheap brands. I am currently wearing abena super+ and it is one of the best. However, I don't mind thick diapers. You also can't go wrong with secure x-pus diapers. The developer understands the need for quality and tradition.

     

    Good luck

      Thank you for the information John.

      Do you know any major stores that sell plastic pants?

      I am trying to buy the pants without going on-line.

      Welcome to retail hell!!

       

      First: To my knowledge, no major pharmacy carries plastic pants. You have to find a hospital supply store in your area (yellow pages, internet yellow pages) and call first.

      Welcome to retail hell!!

       

      First: To my knowledge, no major pharmacy carries plastic pants. You have to find a hospital supply store in your area (yellow pages, internet yellow pages) and call first.

      What ur likely to find (if anything) is the sanipant http://www.healthdri.com/sanipant.html. You might also get lucky and find a generic pant offered. These are not real plastic pants, but rather a nylon tricot pant with plastic interior. I have a few but rarely wear them. I require a maximum protection diaper and a foolproof plastic pant. You must use the Internet!

       

      If you wear a diaper with a wetness indicator, your best choice is either a clear or transparent pant. There r some great manufactures and distributors with a wide selection to choose from. These companies understand the trauma of incontinence and r very user-friendly. Also, u want a full-cut brief with a large gusset to accommodate your diaper. Although I can fit in a medium, I usually order a large for extra room if I wear multiple diapers.

       

      Her r a few sites:

       

      fetware.com

      myprotex.com

      b4ns

      abdl.us

      ACmedical

       

      Google plastic pants and search both web and images to get an idea of variety. Some popular pants are Comco, Tuffs, Leakmaster, etc. Currently, I am wearing a pale blue cloud product from Fetware. I have also ordered a Hi-Cut product form them to avoid leaking in bed when your pant rides up. I will let u know about the Hi-Cut after it arrives. As to the cloud pant, I am now wearing it for the 2nd time. I am in the midst of testing a number of adult diapers, and this pant held up well with AbriForm Super Super+; I have to check myself to see how I am doing with Secure X-Plus.

       

      FYI, I have owned over 100 plastic pants. At first I wore them w/o diapers because my "flow" was manageable. However, sweat and oil make plastic pants stiff and only now do I realize less is more when caring for pants. Since I am now fully incontinent because of prostate problems, my dependence on plastic pants is great. Wash ur plastic pant in warm water only immediately when you remove it. It will minimize odor and the need for a soap washing. Only use ivory soap if necessary. Alas, any soap will wear-down the plastic fabric so use sparingly. No matter what you read, do not machine wash. Wash by hand. I rinse mine when I take a shower and let the pant air dry. Do not hang but rather lay it over something; I put mine on my bathroom Jacuzzi.

       

      Good luck, hope I helped.

       I am amazed and touched by all the information on this site and all the people who contribute to it.

       It has helped me dealing with my incontinence and stsrting to get over my shame of wearing diapers.

       I still have a feeling of shame when my wife, who is very supportive and undrstanding, asks me if I wet my diaper in the morning.

      Thanks again.

      I apologize for not responding sooner, but I also suffer from depression and it often renders me helpless.

      I don't know what your wife understands about your need for plastic pants, but if she is open-minded u might want to involve her in your product purchases. I wrote a post about my "wife in denial" so I understand the toll diapers and plastic pants can take on a marriage.

      I convinced my wife to allow me to proactively search and shop for the best protection for me. In my search, I corresponded with many female customer service reps, many of whom responded by email. I let my wife read the emails becuase I wanted her to experience first hand the vulnerabilty one experiences when divulging sensitive information. As a male, it is doubly difficult to talk to females about diapers and plastic pants becuase of the whole virility thing.

      I was fortunate. My search culminated in a number of products arriving between Thnaksgiving and New Year's. Only one vendor proved to be dishonest and I have learned much about my needs.

      My wife does not take an active interest in my diapering. And, I am not profecient in diapering myself. But, if u can involve your wife in your changings, you may become less ashamed about her questions.

      Here is what I have bluntly told my wife: "for almost all of our marriage, I wore protection (condoms) whenever we were intimate, becuase you didn't take well to modern birth control methods. You trusted me and learned to be proactive in putting the condom on me becuase you understood the importance of intimacy. Why can't u show the same sensitivity towards me with regards to my need for diapers and plastic pants.?" I think she is starting to uderstand. 

      I hope you can muster the courage to talk to your wife about your shame. There is more to intimacy than physicality and I believe most therapists would advise open communication.

      Anyway, good luck. And if you want an update on my quest, let me know.

      John

      I do not understand why such a difference in performance shoulkd take place with a product that is meant to deal with incontinenance,a very private and emotional condition.

      Some of these companys must know that their product is not performing the way it should.

      We can put a man on the moon, but we can't produce a disposable diaper that does it's job.

      I need a diaper that works.

      Hi -

       

      I have read through most of the running threads on this issue and I have to agree with all of you that there are not many reliable resources available in the retail field, unless you go to a Medical Supply store or a Home Health Care store.

      Hi -

       

      I have read through most of the running threads on this issue and I have to agree with all of you that there are not many reliable resources available in the retail field, unless you go to a Medical Supply store or a Home Health Care store.

       

      I believe John mentioned about the Adult Cloth Diaper (ADC) company in one of his comments.  I have tried their products and they have good disposable diapers (their own house brand) at a reasonable price.  They hold up well, the tapes stay on and they can absorb most common wettings through the night.   I have tried their plastic pants, however they are more designed for use over cloth diapers.  They are cut rather large and do not fit firmly over a disposable and end up being baggy and loose fitting, except for the legs and waist bands.

       

        Though, like any diaper, once they reach their absorbency capacity, they will leak.  I recommend what others have mentioned as well, to wear plastic pants over them.  I purchase mine from www.drleonards.com  They are reasonably price, sometimes offering free shipping, and seem to hold up well after several washings.

       

      You mentioned something about someone coming up with a really good disposable diaper that will hold up well and do the job that we expect and require from it.   I believe it was either late last year or early this year, another company has come on board - Bambino Diapers (http://www.bambinodiapers.com).  Though this company is more geared toward the ADB/ADL group, they have produced a sensational diaper which works great for people in our category as well.  Super absorbent and super capacity as well.  They are designed to fit the contours of the body well, and the tapes stick on well, even after re-adjusting them a few times.  They are sort of expensive, however they do include free shipping in the price, making it rather comparable to other brands and places where you have to pay for the shipping.

       

      I hope this infornation is of some assistance to you and everyone else.

      The Leakmaster Deluxe pant made by Gary and sold by Fetware.com, Plastic-pants.com, Adultclothdiaper.com and Llmedico.com. This pant is made from 7 mil thick vinyl and has vinyl enclosed elastic around the waist and legs. This feature is supposed to be real effective at preventing leaks,especially at night.

      Hi Andrei -

       

      Plastic pants over disposables work great and if need be, adding an insert or booster pad into Depends or any other similar brand helps to retain more through the night.

       

      You can order plastic pants at http://www.drleonards.com     phone# 1-800-785-0880

       

       

      Wishing you life's best!

      My husband too has the same difficulty but due to a tramatic brain injury.  I am looking for a good guality plastic pants for added protection at night and long trips.  As far as disposable pants the very best for comfort and effectiveness is Prevails.  Prevail PM is the best for at night. I have only been able to find them through an online company. They also carry ones with comfort band the work well during the day.  Those are also sold at Walgreens under the name of Certainty.  We have tried many different brands and styles but now will only buy Prevails or Certainty.
