I love Thirsties duo wraps but I want to see if I should try other ones too.

UPDATE

I bought two Flip covers and I think I like them more than Thirsties. We will see.

Re: What are your favorite covers?

We have been using flips for about 18 months and they are great covers. Unfortunately, the elastic has not held up as well as I had hoped. I am going to try to replace it and hope for the best, bc we are about to have 2 in cloth and cannot afford to just replace the whole cover.

Re: What are your favorite covers?

I really like duo sz1! Bummis makes a great cover too. I can't wait to try capri's I hope I really like them. I've also been eye balling the imagine AI2 covers with it's flaps, I've heard that are good for the middle rise out, not as good on the smallest rise.

Re: What are your favorite covers?

My favorites for trifolding/padfolding are Flips, Bummis Super Lite, and the duos... I like aplix I haven't tried the Capri yet because of the price. Econobum are also excellent value, they are not my favorite (snaps only) but for the price they are awesome.

My favorites for covering a fitted or a fastened prefold/flat are Thirsties sized, Wallypop fleece wraps, Imse Vimse (the velour stripe kind), Rumparooz covers, and the above covers also work pretty well most of the time (although I like a fuller cut cover over fastened diapers). The IV are pricey but I got one as a hand-me-down and fell in love

I don't love Bummis Super Whisper Wraps - they are durable and effective, but they just feel sort of rough and crunchy to me, not as stretchy or as soft as my more favored covers. They have been very popular for a long time though. Super Brites are good and I loved my newborn size one, but the prints are ugly IMO. I don't like Grovias because I find the coverage lacking and the fit just doesn't work well on my babies' shapes, I think they fit better on babies with a lower rise who aren't as bottom-heavy. (Then again, many moms say the Flips don't fit their babies well because they are so wide in the crotch and big overall, but they fit my babies REALLY well...)

I also have some various WAHM covers that can be pretty good but are sometimes sized oddly. Most of the WAHM covers I have are from stores that are now defunct, anyway. And I have a Planetwise cover that I got in the seconds sale recently and apart from some problem snaps, it is nice and working well for us, nice big tucking flaps but also enough side coverage to easily cover a snappied prefold, plus cute prints I also like pull-on nylon covers over cute fitteds because they show the prints and are super comfy, I will also be using them increasingly over trainer undies for outings as my DD starts PLing, since she can easily pull them up and down.

I like thirsties, flips, and blueberry coveralls. All snaps, the application on the flips is no good imo

Re: What are your favorite covers?

We like the blueberry and rar covers. We only use them at night over a fitted and have never had a leak with either brand.

Re: What are your favorite covers?

I'm really not picky. Anything that works, I like. I use Rumparooz, Flips, Econobums and a couple wahm covers/woolies. One of my wahm covers was made by Mrs. Sunshine on here. It has adorable ruffle butts
The Rumparooz are my favorites so far.
