In the latter part of January, I think on the 22nd, I came across a Reddit post (on r/ABDL) where someone was announcing that their free sample of the new XL Goodnites had arrived. I’m not usually super active on Reddit, so this was the first time I heard that Goodnites was coming out with a new size (or, more accurately, splitting the L/XL size into two sizes, L and XL).
I went over to the announcement page Goodnites had put up online and I guess I was feeling bold that day because I pretty much immediately ordered myself a free sample. I guess part of the reason I was bold enough to do this was because, while I still live with my parents, I now have a secret PO box.

Long story short: In an earlier post, I said I was looking at trying some new premium plastic-backed diapers soon, possibly NorthShore Supremes. Then I posted a comment on that post saying I’d changed my mind. Then I changed my mind back and bought some. I did go with the Supremes. Now I’m going to review them. . . .
The NorthShore Supreme, in my eyes, is like a cheap version of the Abena M4—which is ironic because the Supreme is quite a bit more expensive. To be precise, I got a pack of 14 Abena M4s in January for about $18 and a pack of NorthShore Supremes recently for about $27.
I have been very disappointed with the Supremes ever since I first opened the pack I bought. The first thing about them that disappointed me was that they have these hard, sand-like bumps on them in random places. I’ve seen these on brand new diapers before, but not so many of them. I’m guessing it’s some issue with the padding. It’s not that big of a deal, but it is aesthetically displeasing, so it gave me an early burst of disappointment.
For another thing, the briefs are quite thin. At least, they’re thinner than I expected. And, probably partially for that reason, they act quite like super-thin MoliCare Super Pluses do when I first put them on: they stay pretty far from my skin. That’s not a characteristic I like in my diapers.

Okay, so the title of this post sounds super dramatic, but I’m not gonna “go off” on this diaper. I get why it was made and that there are probably a small number of fans of it. So, this is just a calm account of the worst diaper I ever used: Always Discreet Underwear.
I vaguely remember why I bought a pack. I was in high school, and still buying exclusively from drugstores. I’d tried most drugstore diapers already, at least all the ones that seemed like they might be good. So, I was looking to expand my experience to diapers that looked bad but might be hidden gems. Also, I was always looking for cheap diapers, and this fit the bill (I think it was actually on sale). If it were a hidden gem and inexpensive, that would be awesome. My third reason was because it’s marketed for females, and when buying a pack I wouldn’t be suspected as the user. I wasn’t in the mood for a stressful diaper-buying experience.
I won’t lie. I was genuinely excited when I got out to my car with the pack of Always Discreet. I think I always get excited, no matter what diaper I’ve bought in store or ordered online. And this time, for some reason, my excitement led me to open the pack and put one on right then and there, in my car.

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.

For my first diaper review, I’d like to review the Abena Abri-Flex Premium M3. I just purchased my first pack of this diaper last week, and I have only used about half the pack, but I feel ready to do a review. . . .
