Adult diapers leak mainly due to 2 main reasons

  1. Use of wrong size
  2. Using the adult diaper for too long

To elaborate

  1. An adult diaper that is too small or too big will not provide good protection

So to prevent this best that can be done is make sure you choose the right size or a product that fits well

Special note should be made to ensure a snug fit around the thighs

  1. The other reason is every diaper has a certain capacity, in India adult diapers have capacity ranging from 500ml-700ml in the low quality and up to 2000ml in the high quality. A wide range of these can be found on healthdexter.com

The general thumb rule is assuming around 1000 ml max capacity.
