Adult Diapers with Tabs: Why You May Want to Use This Style

Adult diapers with tabs benefit people looking for a more secure fit. What is the purpose of tabs on diapers? Tabs give a tighter fit around the leg areas. Adult pull ups do not offer the ability to adjust. 

If you are someone who wants the ability to adjust your adult diaper, then tab-style diapers are for you. Additionally, if you are caring for someone who is bed-bound or uses a wheelchair, tab-style briefs also help. You can change the product without having to remove clothes. 

Plastic Backed Vs. Cloth-Like Adult Diapers 

Adult diapers with tabs come in plastic-backed and cloth-like exteriors. 

Plastic-backed adult diapers help reduce the smell of odors. The plastic shell contains odors better than diapers with a cloth-like exterior.

Plastic-backed briefs have tape tabs. Cloth-like briefs have hook and loop tabs, which can be adjusted as needed. 

Plastic-backed adult diapers offer more protection for people managing bowel and urinary leakage.  The outer plastic shell and the brief’s durability are game changers for adults managing heavy leakage. 

"The plastic is strong and doesn't stretch out, so the diaper doesn't sag, even when very wet.

The leg gathers and leak guards are great at containing messy accidents. I've even had multiple messes and nothing leaked out." - John, Current NorthShore MEGAMAX adult diaper user

Cloth-like briefs, on the other hand, offer a breathable exterior. This backsheet is beneficial because it does not rustle during movements. It also helps people who have sensitive skin. The technology allows air to flow and allows the skin to breathe. The cloth-like backing allows any humidity to evaporate. Cloth-like diapers help maintain healthy skin for individuals with bedsores, skin allergies, or pressure sores.
