Thirsties vs. Bummis Super Brite

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
We like our thirsties covers a lot, but I might want some more wrap-style covers. I'm considering Bummis Super Brites. They look so similar to Thirsties. For those of you that have them both, are they very much alike? Do they fit the same? Do you use the same size in each? Is the fabric the same?
TIA!

bsbrites are stiffer, don't cover as much at the leg, the velcro is scratchier and they feel colder..................BUT I preferred them to Thirsties once mobile...........held prefold better and tummy didn't get scratched..............

Exactly what she said.

Thanks for your replies. I think I'll just get more Thirsties. We don't have a tummy-scratching problem and they hold pf's just fine as long as I use pins, which I prefer to do anyway. Thanks again!

Yep. I also prefer how the super brites look under clothes. The thirsties seemed very chunky at the hips/thighs and I had a hard time getting pants to fit nicely in them.

A vote for Thirsties. I like SuperBrite okay, but I like Thirsties better.

Super Brites are a higher, narrower fit. Better over prefolds, IMO. Thirsties are a lower, wider fit, better over fitteds. Other than that, they are very similar. If you want to trifold, I would use Super Brites. The Bummis sizes are slightly smaller than the Thirsties - they sort of alternate.
