Have any of you found a style or brand of pants that fit okay over the cloth?

Oddly enough, Ralph Lauren pants seem to fit the best for E.  Also she has some Sweet Beginnings leggings that fit great and some other brand leggings that are horrible.  She has a pair of French pants, Grain de Bleu, I think, that fit well.  But French Obaibi are awful over her diaper.  H&M pants are okay, Gap are not.

I find Carter's fit really well - especially the leggings (I have my DS in them most of the time - too bad they only go up to 24 months!).

For sure, not The Children's Place jeans/cords if it's for a girl.  They worked out okay for my son.

 

I got some second-hand cords Oshkosh ones that fit great.  I'm not sure how old they are though, and I don't have any new Oshkosh clothing.

 

My daughter has leggings from Gymboree, Carters, Kohls, Target, and Walmart and they all fit fine.  It's jeans I have more problems with.

Walmart has these denim pants that have a very high elastic waist, they usually fit over cloth ok.  I see them every year when they put out the fall clothes and I buy several sizes at once lol.

Yes to the first part of this....

 

But, they go well over 24 months!  I just bought DS a couple cute 2-piece sets (knit pants and long sleeve t's) at Costco in a 3T.  They went up to 5T.  The pants are much like the legging-style ones he always wore as a babe.

We mostly do leggings for DD.  Or on very warm days I just colour-coordinate her diaper to her top/dress and call it done.  I keep meaning to look into getting some babylegs for cooler weather...

We like Speeses. They are a bit spendy but we found some used on ebay in great shape. We ask for them for christmas & birthdays. We're on our 3 size range, we love them that much.

Brilliant! I'll keep a lookout for these. Thanks :)
