As time moves on, we don’t really think much about the old plastic-backed diapers these days. I mean, in this part of the world where many of us hide our diapers from family and where the weather is hot, cloth-backed diapers and pull-ups are the obvious choice. Even though a plastic-backed diaper is much cheaper, we prioritise comfort and security.
A few months back I had managed to get my hands on some vintage diapers. They are some Tena Slips which I had managed to bring into Singapore with some difficulty, but that’s a story for another day… Anyway, I haven’t really worn them since.
For those of you who follow my Tumblr post you may remember a few days ago I did open up a vintage Tena Slip Plus and double-up over my usual cloth-backed Slip Plus. I did that because I was already in my cloth-backed diaper and I didn’t really want to damage the tapes.
Anyway, it did bring back come memories for me. The texture of the plastic-backing and the occasional crinkle as I shifted in my seat were but a reminder that I am a longtime ABDL. I guess the younger ABDLS and TBDLs won’t really know what’s fantastic about these Tenas but for me it was a wonderful feeling.
But I did forget that these plastic-backed diapers don’t stretch. I placed the tapes onto the frontal patch at the same location I did before I gained some weight (mind you, it’s just a few kilos). And a few minutes later I was contemplating adjusting the tapes because they were tight, and didn’t stretch like a cloth-backed diaper would.
I gave up eventually and took off the vintage Tena, knowing that if i had readjusted it the tapes would lose stickiness when the time came for me to eventually use it. Bottom felt much less constricted.
To be honest, I’m not sure why I’m still not using my plastic-backed dips. I must have bought at least 7 packs of my usual cloth-backed Tenas since I received them, but I haven’t touched any of the vintage diapers and a handful of other ABDL dips I bought all those months ago (save for that VTSP which I keep wearing over other dips).
I mean I do wan’t to wear them, but with my current situation it’s possible-but-risky and I just have a handful of them. I could get some Tena Values or some Fairprice dips, but again, security. Crinkles are fun, until your dad hears them. Yeah I know, I’ve been down that rabbit hole before. There is no such risk with cloth-backed diapers. And when dry they don’t poof out too.
I guess that these vintage diapers are “too precious” for me to use them on an ordinary night. I haven’t been on any diapered escapades recently so maybe for my upcoming Bali trip I might try a couple at long last. I did want to “model out” and take some pics, but I realised that 1) my body isn’t exactly photogenic, 2) I’m not a girl and 3) with Tumblr clamping down I have nowhere to post them. Oh well ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
