Upon first inspection of the sample 2 pack, 1 small and 1 medium, I'm not sure what exactly I received. I did get two diapers, one white and one light blue just as the website says, but they both say medium on their undersides. The light blue diaper is supposed to be the small and it is slightly shorter, as you can see in the below image, but when I put it up next to a medium Bambino Bianco, the light blue 24/7 is actually wider in the crotch.
When I put a medium Bianco on top of the 24/7, as you can see in the below image, the Bianco is about the same width in the crotch but the 24/7 is wider in the tape area, both front and back, and it is an inch or so longer.
The 24/7 feels thicker and stiffer then the Bianco. It isn't quite as soft but since it's thicker it feels squishier and more comfortable when you sit down on a hard surface. It also feels like a stronger plastic then the Bianco, but it doesn't have a tape landing zone which I really miss. There are 2 tapes on each side as you can see in the above picture, and they are of the adjustable variety, which I am not a big fan of. I would rather have a tape landing zone so I can adjust the diaper over and over again all OCD like.
Immediately upon taping this diaper on it is apparent that it's a bigger diaper then the Bianco. It sits much higher in both my back and front which makes me feel almost lost in the diaper, but you may like this if you're an AB. It also feels thicker between my legs which could be explained by the stiffer padding not bending as much and giving the impression of a much thicker diaper, but I'm not complaining. I spent a couple hours in this diaper before I started wetting it and I can say that it is rather comfortable all around.
Soon after I started wetting I got the impression that these diapers will hold a lot! It should be noted that I was pointing up for this test, as I usually do. The diaper does swell very generously which can also be its crutch. It swelled so much while I was writing this that it pulled the leak guards away from my skin which will undoubtedly lead to minor leaking. The diaper did get to a point where I couldn't even close my legs anymore and it still hadn't leaked! I wouldn't be able to do this with the Bianco without a stuffer. Of course the issue with wearing a sagging diaper is that my bottom right tape failed so I peeled off the blue part and stuck it back on, problem solved.
The Dry 24/7 is all around a good diaper. It holds a ton and swells up generously, much more then the Bambino Bianco. If you enjoy thick diapers, the 24/7 will swell so much you won't be able to close your legs anymore, but if you're sitting down that could cause it to leak. I am definitely not a fan of the lack of tape landing zone or the adjustable tapes that replaced it. The unfortunate thing about the Dry 24/7 is that I noticed a considerable amount of sweating. Sweating, if you are unaware, is the urine inside the diaper leaking through the outer cover. Normally I would chock this up to a defective diaper, but I have heard many people mention this recently leading me to believe it's a much bigger problem. One final thing I would like to say is that if I was incontinent I wouldn't choose these diapers for myself. They do hold a ton but they also puff up a ton as well, making them very noticeable under clothes. If you say just change more often, then I would would say that at roughly $2.39USD per diaper, you are wasting your money. These are great diapers, and when they fix the sweating issue I would consider these for a play diaper, but for now I'm going to stick with the Bambino Biancos.
