The Scent a Diaper Gives the Skin

When I’m out of my diaper to change it or air out my skin, a nice scent always wafts up to my nose. It’s the scent the diaper has given my skin.

If you’ve worn adult diapers, you probably know what I’m talking about. Some kind of perfume or lotion or something in the diaper marinates the skin while the diaper is on, then lingers for a while after it’s off (probably until you wash the diaper area). You can even often smell it when the diaper is on, though it’s more muted.

My First Time Buying Diapers

In this post, I’ll tell you about my first time buying adult diapers. I don’t remember it too well, but I’ll try to tell you as much as I can. Hopefully my story will be interesting to some people.

I was either about to turn 17 or I had just turned 17. I had recently gotten my driver’s license and I used it to drive to and from school each day.

My current situation has helped me cement this belief because I haven’t been wearing anything over my diaper most of the time. I’ve walked and lounged around my house and on my porch and even gone out in my front yard in just my diaper and a shirt (when I go to work and to the store, I still wear pants, of course). Doing this, I have noticed that my diaper feels more comfortable and seems to absorb more. Also, it is easier to check how full it is and make sure it’s not leaking.

The Best Drugstore Diaper

When I first started wearing diapers, all I had access to were what I call drugstore diapers. I’m talking about the ones you can buy in America at drugstore chains like CVS and Walgreens. This category also includes the diapers you can buy at grocery stores and dollar stores.

I did a lot of hunting around these stores and their websites in my early years of self-diapering, trying to find the best diaper for the best price. I was a broke teenager when I started, after all. I want to share my findings, in case you’re in a similar situation as I was, where I couldn’t order online and had little money.
