Understanding diaper sizes
When you are a first time user of adult diapers, it is very important that you find an adult diaper that is the right size. It has to fit snugly to ensure zero leak and at the same time, large enough so that you don’t have to stretch the sticky-tapes too far (for nappy type diapers), leaves enough space and does not bite into the skin or hinder blood circulation.
Adult diapers come is familiar sizes such as Small, Medium, Large, etc., but due to a lack of standardization of sizes, these labels can be misleading. To complicate things further, some of the sizes refer to hip sizes and other refer to waist sizes. In addition, with age, for most people the waist disappears and more weight seems to settle in the hip area. To find your size, take the larger of your hip size(around the hip bone) and waist size (at the level of your navel).
Given all these complications, it may be necessary to try out one or two sizes before one can figure out the right one. To get you started on your hunt for the right adult diaper, please find below the sizes and measurements for the different brands we sell at Old Is Gold Store.
