What type of everyday clothing do you wear? As summer approches I want to hide the fact I need protection sometimes. Yet I want to be comfortable. And another question does anyone wear underwear over whatever protection they are using or just do not bother?

Summer is here and for some is a fear of their diapers being noticed or worse.
Fear not my friends because summer's clothing need not be hindered by the diapers we wear.
For hot days and shorts a diaper or a pull up can be worn with a little common sense.
The main objective is the kind and length of the shorts you select.
A modest pair of jean or a rayon "gym short" can conceal your diapering needs.
The knee length that most of these have offers the no peak safety and the relaxed fit offers the benefit of the not so telltale look of what i fondly call "The Hooters Shorts".
Color is not as important here but the lighter colors [ kacki is the worst] tend to show any leaks that might occur.
Some of the gymshort types as well as swimming trunks have a built in "underwear" that can muffle any noise from a taped diaper but aren't foolproof.
My claim to diapered fame puts me in a pair of "Baggy Shorts" that are one size too big and allow for a diaper that I cover with my Sanipant diaper cover.
The Sanipant muffles the noise and protects from any floods from too many beverages on the beach or boardwalk in Atlantic City when I retreat there for " A Week At The Shore".
On most days I wear the same kind of shorts but when I'm not going to be away from changing facilities I elect to replace the Sanipant with a pair of colored underwear one waist size smaller to snug up the diaper and muffle any noise.
You CAN go out in shorts or the like in summer clothing if you remember that more is less and less is not enough which covers Speedos, Thongs and any other clothing artical that may put on a diaper show.
Get Out There and take along a reusable swimdiaper to keep the pools happy too.
All The Best,

For clothing during the winter i wear a t shirt and jeans and over my diaper i wear a onesie it is great for hiding a diaper and holds it up when wet. and summer i wear t shirt and shorts in public like cargo or gym shorts. I also wear a onesie during the summer it really helps hide a diaper they are the best for holding a saggy diaper.

I find the use of a onesie works best year round. You don't have to worry about the shirt pulling up in back showing your underwear. The shirt holds everything in place so there is less bunching up of material in the diaper when wet.
I wear Dockers for dressing up when needed and gym shorts or shorts one size larger. (Cargo shorts are good) I go though more doublers durning the summer so I don't have to wear any overpants for leaks, This keeps the heat build up down. I think the heat build up is the hardest to avoid durning the summer so try to change more often when I can. Powder helps alot with the heat.
For me loose fitting clothes are the fix durning summer. If I keep that in mind Ihave no problems. Stay dry, Wet 24/7
