In this weird business that is incontinence care testing, there are products that you shuffle around on your to-do list not because they are potentially bad, but because you simply can’t find any useful info. Lille Healthcare’s Lilfit products are some of those. No offense to our French friends, but their web site is just terrible – all fancies, no information – and when you do a web search, most product photos you can find make my own not so great shots almost look like masterpieces, I dare say. So in order to contribute and improve this situation let’s have a look at the SupremFit product line first.
In keeping with my usual preferred selection I tried out the most absorbent version, but if that’s too much for your needs, you can also “downgrade” to any other of the four levels. The levels are indicated not only by the number of drops on the package, but also the color of the print on the diaper itself. Incidentally, grey happens to be my favorite color (You guessed that from the blog theme and the photo backgrounds already, didn’t you?), anyway. So this is a nice touch, even if mostly irrelevant in practice.
Myself living on the chubby side of the optimum BMI (body mass index) I’m really pleased that this product is on the roomy side of things. Its fit is more like that of a Molicare Super Plus or import products like the Rearz as opposed to several undersized products I’ve reviewed lately. This is aided by the velcro variety fixation tapes that allow you to tweak things until you get it right. As the French might say: Trés superbe!
One of the oddly disturbing and slightly confusing things is, that no matter how much effort you put in, the product always looks kinda baggy. That’s part of my issue with the marketing materials – even on the pose shots with people wearing the diaper, it looks like they already used them. My working theory here is, that this is not only because of the larger size but also the outer surface being very soft and therefore tending to wrinkle itself more than other products. For actual use it’s fortunately a non-issue – your nappy may not look like a tight fit from the outside, but it clearly is on the inside and you can feel it. I had zero leakage.
Once more this is naturally helped by the reasonably sized pad and its qualities. Nothing to complain here, as it stays reasonably soft and delivers on its promise, truthfully matching the absorption levels on the packaging. I also did not observe any “sweating” where liquid seeps out through the backing, which is another plus.
Are there any bad sides? No real ones to speak of, though admittedly it takes a bit of getting used to this product – for me, anyway. It has sort of a “loose fit” feeling compared to my usual selection, but I wouldn’t object to wearing it fulltime. After working out the finer details of attaining a perfect fit, I’m sure it would be just fine, I just need to give it another spin.
