Reviews are practically nonexistent for booster pads. Not even XPMedical.com, a retailer website that does the most thorough job of lab-testing adult diapers, rates booster pads, although it sells them. Editors at IncontinenceSupport.org recommend the Tranquility Topliner Booster Pad. We found no user reviews beyond a message-board discussion on Depend.com, where discussion of brands other than Depend is permitted.
Booster pads are meant as supplements to briefs-style adult diapers and disposable pull-on underwear, not as standalone pads. As one user review termed it, it is a "diaper within a diaper." Reviews are scarce, but IncontinenceSupport.org recommends the Tranquility Topliner. The Tranquility Topliner has a flow-through top and back sheet. After it fills to capacity, the liquid is transferred to whichever main diaper or disposable underwear you have on. We found a message-board discussion in which a few users discuss Tranquility Topliners in regard to fit and leakage. There is some agreement that the Tranquility Topliner Booster Pad fits better between a main diaper's leak guards than the Tranquility Topliner Contour. As a main diaper, most reviews recommend the high-absorbency Abena Abri-Form X-Plus (*est. $15 for a package of 14 medium), which attaches with tape in four places.
There is no comparative review of boosters, but the Tranquility Topliner Contour is recommended.
Review: The New Diaper Primer, Editors of IncontinenceSupport.org, 2005
This is the website of the Depend brand of adult diapers, but there are message-board discussions of other brands, sometimes favorably. On this very short thread, two posters complain about leakage on the Tranquility Topliner Contour, but one says the Tranquility Topliner Booster Pad works better.
