This question has popped up quite a bit on my blog dashboard and by sheer lucky chance in fact I got a few product samples, so let’s have a look at the new Molicare Super Plus with textile surface, which in its full name is actually called Molicare Premium Soft Super Plus. If you follow this blog regularly, this should ring a bell. Didn’t we review a similar product a while ago?
Lucky for us, though, this new product has little in common with the other Molicare Premium Soft products beyond sharing the measurements for the outer shell almost identically, give or take those magic centimeters here and there. On the other hand it doesn’t suffer those annoying issues with liquid oozing out through the cover. You already feel that when holding the diaper – it feels much smoother, looks a bit more white and you just get that impression that it may be less permeable and that holds true.
The other pretty obvious thing is the size and shape of the pad. Thank goodness they realized that a product meant for heavy incontinence needs some decent absorption and gave it a large pad. It’s not quite as large as the one in the “old”, foil coated Super Plus, but noticeably bigger than the normal Premium Soft varieties. I dare say it’s just right and feels very cosy around your butt and family jewels. ;-) They also seem to have adjusted the mixture of the pad, so it behaves more favorable when it fills up with liquid. You can go very long without a diaper change, probably even longer than the predecessor (I didn’t do any exact measurements, it just felt this way).
I’m always wary when companies change a product and given my bad experiences with “that other product”, my sensors were on full alert. Therefore it’s a pleasant surprise that they “got it right” for a change. Still, in a way it is a completely different product that doesn’t really compare to the original Molicare Super Plus, which still remains one of my favorite products because it fits like a glove. Once my stockpile runs out, I wouldn’t object to getting the new variant, though. It’s a more than valid successor. The only real caveat is the price, which is as high as it always has been, so I can only hope for some subsidies from my health insurance when the time comes.
