Extremely absorbent and infinitely wearable, the Molicare Super Plus Adult Diaper gets strong feedback from wearers and experts. If you're looking for quality coupled with peace of mind, this diaper can offer you excellent leakage protection, effective odor control and a comfortable fit.
Protects all through the night, and then some. In XPMedical.com's comparative absorbency test, the Molicare Super Plus took in a total of 46 ounces of fluid -- an admirable yield, in league with some of the other most absorbent brands of adult briefs. But the Super Plus truly shines in the test's "wicking distance" category. Outdoing the other contenders, it absorbed fluid over the space of 18 inches, allowing much of the padding to be used before needing to change. Other experts fall in line, rating these adult diapers tops in absorption and freedom from leakage. John Davis at IncontinentSupport.org notes that because of its high absorbency, the Molicare Super Plus is a particularly good choice for overnight use.
A secure, snug fit. The general consensus seems to be that the Molicare Super Plus briefs are comfortable to wear, although a review by the IncontinenceSupport.info warns that the brand's sizing at the larger end of the spectrum is somewhat skewed. (They advise taking four to five inches off the size specifications for the larger sizes.).
High-tech materials keep odors at bay. The Super Plus' three-part absorbent core is designed to neutralize odor, and most wearers seemed satisfied with this feature, as it went mostly unmentioned in user reviews. IncontinenceSupport.info says that while the Molicare Super Plus is a relatively pricey product, it's worth its cost for the "peace of mind it gives me in leakage and odor control protection."

IncontinenceSupport.info rates adult briefs in a number of categories, such as fit and absorbency, and goes on to detail some of the product's features. The Super Plus receives high marks in almost every performance category, but receives an "Average" score for fit, ease of putting on and ease of removal. The reason for its average score for fit is that fit is iffy at the top end of each size range.
