DD is very slim, and when the snaps were done up, the inside "wings" (the far ends of the top part with the snaps) would slip down inside the diaper, and then the leg casings would start to gape. You can guess the rest.
I think they've overhauled them since we used them a couple of years ago however!

I actually love my BG 3.0s! I don't dry mine in the dryer (just the inserts), so maybe that's why I've had luck with mine. But I haven't been using them that long, either. DH even loves them.
I disliked the BSWW covers. They are just too stiff and I didn't like the fit around the legs. I loved the Thirsties covers best of all. Great adjustable fit. Love the leg gussets. I have two Litewraps covers and these fit a little weird, too, and are stiff. I'd only buy Thirsties from now on as far as covers go.

I had one of these because I bought a few diapers to check out when deciding what to do for our newborn stash. I loved this diaper but couldn't justify the price so we went with Kissaluvs before DD arrived.
The swaddlebees fell off DD every single time. I have no idea how it kept coming off, but it did. I'm so glad I didn't base my stash on these.
Dh says anything with velcro. They were fine themselves but it wears out too fast and they are scratchy and come open.
Myself - BG's - the original ones from about 3 years ago and I am not too fond of the Kissaluvs contours, although I like the fabric and got a fitted and really like it. Also, I've been drooling over Sugar Peas Wool covers for years and finally bought one and I am so disappointed. I got a medium when my daughter was only 3 months and it was too small around the thighs, cutting into them, and they leak when compressed so I can't take her out in it either.
wanted to add that i always hand washed these and hung to dry. we don't have a washer so i hand wash my pockets and covers to make the wash loads smaller.
I'm in the middle of planning a newborn stash, and Swaddlebees fitteds and Sugar Peas were going to play a major role! Guess maybe I'll just buy one of each and see.
You know, I've been using my BG 3.0 for as long as they've been on the market, albeit not in heavy rotation, and I have never, ever had a leak, or had the velcro get messy on them. Maybe they just haven't been washed enough to ruin the velcro.
Kissaluvs. But everyone else bows down to them so...yeah, must be me.
The ruffles around the legs always sneak out from under the cover and cause pee seepage.
I also hate snaps.

Also, I'm surprised that a lot of people dislike BumGenius one size diapers. I have the velcro ones for more than a year and while not in new condition, they work perfectly. I love the snap ones more. I like snaps in general because my daughter can't rip them off yet.
