I’ve had quite a bit of adventure since I moved to NYC for the summer/fall and I’ve been really excited to share stories/pics/videos with you, this post has all three!
I’m awfully proud of this video, one of my better ones and a step in the right direction, I feel as if I evoked Carl Sagan for a moment there. I hope you enjoy it, I’ll be transcribing the subtitles tomorrow, I had a great time making it and as always, there are things I’d like to say beyond the video… so lets start while i’m in pull-ups…
Can you tell i’m crinkly?
After playing up in the great white north for a little while my diaper really started to sag, I needed a onesie or even a snug pair of tights to keep things in place. The edges around the diaper started to get a little wet and my panties were pretty much soaked from the wetness coming through the plastic… that’s probably the biggest issue with this diaper. That can be solved by wearing a cover or plastic pants, but it is a notable issue. I don’t think it’s wet enough to get through thicker fabric, but you really feel wet when these are wet, that’s a better feeling to have at home not when you’re waiting to cross the border.
I crinkled back to my nursery safely, in my experience the Canadian border folks are so much friendlier than those in the Southland, I rarely worry as I’m just a harmless young lady with her stuffed puppy, shouldn’t be a surprise to find a diaper under my skirt 🙂
The Dry 24/7 stood the test of time, but not a whole 24 hours… I had to get on a bus to NYC once I got back to the states and thought it would be best to change before the 8 hour bus ride. Again, my panties were soaked and my inner thighs felt all wet, I got in my crib and pulled off a very heavy, a very soggy diaper and sent it on it’s way to a landfill somewhere in Jersey. Skin being exposed to fresh air after a long time in diapers makes everything so sensitive, that between diapers feeling of vulnerable nakedness is always a highlight of the diaper change.
These pictures should help illustrate just how soggy I was.
It was a lovely diapered day, and i’m glad I have friends to share it with… I have trouble giving decisive diaper reviews, they’re are goods (bulkiness, absorbency, tapes, odor control, soft plastic, good fit for smaller people, institutional look) and bads (bulkiness, no tape zone, the plastic and edging sweats, kinda boring institutional look) but overall I’m happy with this diaper, and I look forward to trying them again. Would I order them? Nope! Medically transitioning without healthcare is expensive, so I’m happy with my thrift store finds and Tranquility ATN’s (about a $1 a piece) plus the diapers sent to me by readers like you ❤
