Do you buy "seconds" or "irregular" diapers?

I just bought 3 on here that the seller had purchased as seconds, and now I'm wondering if that was smart as I have never purchased a seconds diaper before. Has anyone ever regretted such a purchase? Could their irregularities affect their fit or function to where I may have liked the regular version of the diaper, but since maybe its messed up then I dont like the fit or something? Lol probably a silly question but IDK anything about seconds
Thanks!

All the 2nds I have bought were new but literally had nothing noticeably wrong with them. Sometimes it is just a stitching error so very small. I hope you got a good price on them. Like for example if they were used BG seconds they sell a new bg 4.0seconds for $11 so I would hope you paid like $7-$9 depending on how used it was.

Usually seconds means something very minimal that shouldn't affect function. So, flawed stitching, a mark on the fabric, the fabric print skewed ect.
Should be fine. A WAHM wants people to be happy with the product even if its a second. She (or he) wouldn't want to get a bad name buy selling something that's unusable

All the seconds I've bought knowingly have been fine. I actually bought a diaper that should've been second quality, but was sold full price, and I worry that it will eventually have issues (the inner layers of the soaker weren't sewn down, so they're loose and bunch up in a way that I can't smooth out). But any I've known we're seconds were totally fine.

I haven't and don't buy seconds but only because I am crazy and have a mental issue with it. I read many mamas run for the seconds sales at cottonbabies so I figure they must be great or so many mamas wouldn't return for more of them.

I've bought lots of BG seconds from Cotton Babies. They often pull entire lots of diapers and sell them as seconds when only one diaper in the lot has an issue. I've only had one with a noticeable issue upon receipt and it was a small dirt stain that washed out during prepping. I've also sold a diaper on here that was a second. I was honest about the purchase price and discounted it accordingly. The buyer got a great deal and thanked me after receiving the product :-)
