A new name for a reliable product. Though the results are no longer available online, XPMedical.com tested the previous version of this adult diaper and reports that Molicare Super Plus took in a total of 46 ounces of fluid. That's an admirable yield, in league with some of the other most absorbent brands of adult briefs. It also shined in the test's "wicking distance" category, absorbing fluid over the space of 18 inches, allowing much of the padding to be used before needing to change. Other experts fall in line. IncontinenceSupport.info comments specifically on the Slip Maxi and gives it top marks in absorbency both when dry and wet. "This diaper is DEFINITELY an excellent choice for heavy overnight protection, especially for women!," they say. Lutz Albrecht at Mylenium's Health Stuff tests the newest version and is pleased. "Aside from some minor design changes it really is your good old friend that you've known for so long…" he says.
A secure, snug fit. The general consensus seems to be that the Molicare Slip Maxi briefs are comfortable to wear, although a review by the IncontinenceSupport.info warns that the brand's sizing for its medium and large diapers are off by several inches and that they're actually 4 to 5 inches smaller than the size measurements indicate. As an example, they note that the medium brief, which is advertised as 32 to 47 inches waist or hip, will fit up to a 42 inch waist or hip at most. Albrecht, on the other hand, likes the fit very much. One plus with the new version: though he can't be certain, Albrecht feels that the new backing might be "a tad more robust" than the previous version.
High-tech materials keep odors at bay. The Slip Maxi's three-part absorbent core is designed to neutralize odor, and most seem satisfied with this feature, as it mostly goes unmentioned in user reviews of both the previous and current version. IncontinenceSupport.info says that while the Molicare Slip Maxi is a relatively pricey product, it's worth its cost for the "peace of mind it gives me in leakage and odor control protection."
