Adult Diapers: Ratings of Sources

1. XP Medical.com Adult Diaper Review and Testing, Gary Evans and Editors of XPMedical.com, Not Dated
Credibility:
This adult diaper retailer does extensive testing on the products it carries. It provides a wealth of information on the dimensions, absorbency and capabilities of a number of adult briefs, and it also supplies a brief review of each product. Even though this is a retail website, we found the testing to be appropriate and balanced. Downsides are that comfort is not always addressed, and mainstream supermarket brands such as Depend are not included.
2. IncontinentSupport.org An Introduction to Adult Diapers Their Selection and Wear, John Davis, March 2015
Credibility:
This long PDF file offers excellent information about adult diapers, including types, technologies, fit, how and where to buy, use and more. John Davis, a diaper wearer, also names what he considers to be the top brands of diaper, and recommends specific diapers that he's personally used. Elsewhere on the site, a diaper primer provides some helpful general information on wearing diapers for incontinence.
3. IncontinenceSupport.info Disposable Adult Diapers Reviews, Editors of IncontinenceSupport.info, Not Dated
Credibility:
Incontinence Resource Center rates 18 brands of diapers according to several criteria, including both wet and dry comfort, absorbency, rewet absorbency and ease of removal. The authors fail to describe how they conduct the testing, though the reviews indicate that at least some of the information is based on hands-on use. The reviews, although a little informal and anecdotal, are detailed and informative.
4. NationalIncontinence.com Tips & Advice: Breathable Outer Layer Briefs Comparison Chart, Editors of NationalIncontinence.com, Not Dated
Credibility:
This retailer offers several informative, comprehensive comparison charts on different types of adult diapers and incontinence products. Each list is comprised of over a dozen premium products, which are ranked as "Good," "Better" or "Best." National Incontinence says the ratings are based on absorbency, cost and wearability, although the website doesn't appear to have conducted any formal testing. The charts also list the cost per diaper and delineate key features of the products.
5. Amazon.com Protective Briefs & Underwear, Contributors to Amazon.com, As of August 2016
Credibility:
Amazon.com is an online retailer that allows users to post reviews of the products it sells, including a good selection of incontinence supplies. Adult diapers and other incontinence products often get significant feedback -- sometimes hundreds of reviews. Reviews vary in length, but it's not unusual to find good, detailed information for each product. Listed products run the gamut from premium brands to mainstream products sold in supermarkets and other popular retailers.
6. Walmart.com Incontinence, Contributors to Walmart.com, As of August 2016
Credibility:
Walmart's web site offers another place for users to review a variety of incontinence products. The site is a good source of owner opinions as most products attract at least a few comments, while some get dozens and a few draw hundreds.
7. Magic Medical Which Adult Diaper Is for You?, Editors of MagicMedical.com, Not Dated
Credibility:
Magic Medical carries a good selection of adult diapers, including both brief and pull-up styles. Although it doesn't include full reviews, this comparison chart contains useful information on absorbency and features.
8. NorthShoreCare.com Adult Diapers & Pads, Editors of NorthShoreCare.com, As of August 2016
Credibility:
NorthShore Care Supply is an incontinence supply retailer that allows its customers to leave reviews of products it sells. Most products only garner a little bit of feedback, but NorthShore's house brand incontinence products draw a considerable number of reviews and generally strong ratings.
9. Walgreens.com Incontinence Products, Contributors to Walgreens.com, As of August 2016
Credibility:
Walgreens.com is another site with a fairly large selection of incontinence products. There are generally fewer user reviews than at Amazon.com, but many products get enough feedback to provide good guidance.
10. Overstock.com Incontinence, Contributors to Overstock.com, As of August 2016
Credibility:
Overstock.com is a discount-price online retailer that sells a number of adult incontinence products. It allows users to post reviews based on their experiences with their purchases. Most of the products aren't reviewed more than a few times, though the most popular products attract dozens of reports.
11. The CareGiver Partnership Adult Diaper Review - Top Six Brands, Editors of The CareGiver Partnership, Not Dated
