The Biggest difference - The loss of side padding (Hourglass shape to rectangle.)

Size and shape of the outer shell has not changed.

(Diapers Reversed: 85 on the left now.) Solid thick padding throughout, versus boosted center panel padding.

Wow those attends from 85 look like dry 24/7's. I never got to experience those. Only the bag attends in the late 80's and early 90's. Looks like I missed out on some awesome diapers. Thanks DD!!!!

Even if the absorbancy were equal I still think the old style were much better because the padding in the wings prevents there being a lot of plastic from contact with the skin. I suppose for someone with a plastic fetish the new ones would be a vast improvement :-) I'm glad someone wins here.

Not so much. The older Attends (including the '85 model, looking at the pics) have that weird but nice top sheet that has a quite plasticky feel to it and is all over the diaper's inner surfaces, not just the padded areas. It's strange - not very easy to describe and not at all like today's non-woven top sheets...

It's like cling-wrap, makes it hard to forget you're wearing a diaper... but does a good job of keeping your skin dry!

Seriously about to cry seeing those. I want mid 80s diapers so bad. I was born in 83 so I can remember what it was like. The "diapers" these days just don't feel the same. I wonder what became of the machine that was used to make those 85 attends and how much it would cost to buy/operate it.

There was a change in Attends around 1990 or so as well (when they went from box to bag).    They narrowed the crotch.    They never fit me as well after that.

I still remember being in a large pharmacy in NJ when the clerk hoisted up my box of Attends and shouted to the next cashier over ... "Is there tax on these?"

You do realize that the "mid 80's" diapers were before the application of advanced superabsorbent polymers and things like that. Nostalgia is nice and all but modern diapers simply perform better, despite being thinner.

Attends had sap in them from the start.   Maybe not of the quality we have now, but they had it.     Even the original "non fitted" disposable diapers of the late seventies had supersorb polymer, I remember seeing that on the box.

Even the pedestrian store brands are a whole world better than anything on the market in 1980.   I remember even with Attends I risked a leak with a full wetting.

I'm fully aware that they were before the application of SAP as well as many other things.

Thats what I love about them ;)
