If an adult does not have a medical need to wear a diaper, but has some reason they would like to do so, for example if it helps with stress/anxiety, would there be a Halachic issue with doing so? For example, on Shabbat if a diaper is wet and you sit down, would there be problem with squeezing it?

There is obviously a lot of discussion about baby diapers, and I would assume most of that applies to an adult with incontinence, but how does that change if the reason is mental rather than physical:
