New (April 2017) GoodNites fit significantly better (34" waist)

17 posts in this topic

I don't post a lot, but I really had to share this. I just picked up a package of the new L/XL GoodNites after seeing that they apparently got 'super stretchy sides', and they're great. I have a 34" waist and I had zero issue pulling them up. They fit better around my legs, and the sides are indeed super stretchy, much more so than they used to be not even a year ago. It also feels like they added a little more absorbency and height to the diaper. The fit is almost like the coveted 1990's original GoodNites, although it's not quite there yet.

The new, really stretchy ones are labelled with "5 Layer Protection" and "Double Leg Barriers", and they also have a new design for the sizing chart: https://www.goodnites.com/-/media/gns_image/product/pack/lg_packboy.jpg

If you like GoodNites, check them out.

They're cute, for sure!

I have mixed feelings about the prints. For example, I wish they'd make the "For Boys" ones a plainer design for the sake of the intended users' self-esteem. I personally like the faux-big-boy-underwear design and print (because ABDL, obvz), but it does seem a little out of the target market for the XL size. I wouldn't have been OK with it if I was an older bedwetter, but that's just me.

Unfortunately the picture of the Little Mermaid diaper (which I love!) is the smaller size, I think the L-XL are still just adorable owls and butterflies. Though I'll need to go to the shop to check properly. Also Since when do they have XS?

I just picked up some with the new designs for girls. I don't like them as much as the old ones, but they aren't bad.

Since this revision, as far as I can tell.

Wouldn't xs just be pull-ups? 

 

I think (read: speculate that) the goal was to make the XL sizes larger by adding stretchier elastics and height. If they added it to all the sizes (edit: both S/M and L/XL), it would meet the demand for larger sizes at the L/XL end and in turn open up an overlapping (and somewhat confusing) market segment for Pull-Ups' 3T-4T and 4T-5T with GoodNites' S/M size. I'm not sure of the logic of the XS size there, though, unless they're trying to get the 5T market predisposed to transition to GoodNites now or later. Perhaps Pull-Ups 5T cost less (transition means K-C gains profitability) or are not selling well (transition means K-C sheds loss), but I really don't know.

I'll be trying this for myself In due course, I'm hoping to buy a pack of the L-XL sometime, hopefully next week. 

However in regards to the designs of the girls', they're all adorable.

Any idea how recent this change was? I bought a L/XL pack a few months back, and, with only have a 32'' waist (and having put on some weight in my thighs), it was a tight squeeze to fit them on. I'd have to manually stretch them out before trying to slide them on just to get them to come all the way up. Even doing that, a couple got torn while trying. So do they actually now fit a lot better, more like store brand ones (like Up & Up)? If so, I'll need to try my luck again

If I remember correctly, Pull Ups have specialized nightime designs but only in the 2T-3T and 3T-4T sizes. Since bother Goodnites and Pull Ups are owned by Kimberly Clark I imagine the XS is meant to fill in that sizing gap.

Ah I think this is it, yes...

Based on my experience, if you have a 32 inch waist, it sounds like you got a bad pack. I've tried the up & up ones and to me the name brand fit is usually better.

Picked up a pack today, the double leak guards look pretty nice, haven't gotten to test them out though. The overall fit isn't greatly changed; they might rise a little higher but I can't say for sure. Stretchiness of the sides seems the same, which is fine by me. Thickness when dry appears to be identical. Overall in terms of function I just wish they were slightly thicker and had a wider absorbent panel.

Oh, and ditch the terribad camo design and give me back my skateboarders! Or bring the Disney designs to L/XL (a guy can dream)!

I actually did stop by a local store yesterday but it appears they do not have the re-fitted ones and/or they only had the impossible to hide from prying eyes bulk packages. Maybe when University kicks back up in the fall

Wait so are the goodnites actually any different? I picked up a new pack of girls XL and the pullups themselves seemed to not be any different. My wife says they feel exactly the same, still more comfortable then the ones a few years ago but not any different from the ones earlier this year.

I know that, because of obvious geographic differences, the number of people that have had recent Drynites AND Goodnites are going to be fairly limited, but, does anyone know how they compare?

I ordered Drynites a few months ago from a seller on ebay, and I noticed that the padding felt stiffer, and that the sides were a bit more stretchy and comfortable; from what I remember, it also listed an XS size on the package.

I'm just curious, obviously, if the new goodnites are the same as those Drynites from a few months ago; maybe goodnites were just a little behind in the model prodcution. I haven't been able to find the new goodnites in stores yet, but I liked the comfort of the drynites.

Okay. So I got these, and I made sure to get the new ones, and they do go up easier. But I dunno if it's because I'm a big 34 or if it's just because it's not very true, but they still very much suffer being incredibly low waisted. But they don't seem as prone to ripping on me. At least not yet.
