Abri-Form Comfort are one of the new releases of ‘textured-backing’ adult diapers that have appeared on the adult nappy scene since this became the standard way of adult incontinence products being presented. They claimed all-day comfort whilst having high absorbency. I gave a pack a try.
For those used to Abena’s product classification you can see that these are ranked as aborbency level ‘3’. This translates to a maximum absorbency of 3400ml. That seemed high enough for me to be satisfied with, without being concerned that they were not 4’s (people slightly thinner than me often seem to rave about Abena M4’s on Twitter).
So what do they look like? Since these pictures always seem so popular I have prepared a little gallery of loathsome crotch-shots for your edification (as ever, if you are not reading this article on Toddlerism, you will have to come here to see the galleries):
Abri-Form Comfort certainly feel comfy and they have the advantage of some of the best tapes of any adult diaper I have used. They have a velcro-like (which I believe we are supposed to call hook and eye these days) fastening mechanism. Consequently, you can fasten and re-fasten them as often as you like.
Here is a picture of the tapes featuring, as a guest appearance, my belly!
So Abri-Form Comfort adult diapers have good tapes, they are comfortable and I think they look pretty good. Here is another little gallery:
Any problems, then? Most certainly! They leak like a sieve! Daddy is very good at putting nappies on, but for the week I wore these, every night they leaked. Even when I was not very wet I would wake up at some appalling hour of the morning in a cold, wet patch.
It was not just at night. One wetting whilst I was out would usually leave me with wet patches at the back of my legs. I am not sure it is because of the reduced absorbency compared to Abri-Form Premium M/L4’s, but rather due to them being badly designed.
Consequently, I cannot recommend Abena Abri-Form Comfort adult diapers. Superficially they may look like the kind of diaper suitable for the modern adult baby, but they just fail to perform. Modern littles who want an adult nappy should look to Tena Slip Ultima as the best performing adult baby diaper.
