Has anyone tried both?  The velcro on my Thristies covers has all but died and I want something different for baby number two.  The Lite Wrap velcro seems nice and soft, but maybe the Bummis is grippier?  I don't want snaps, so I am just interested in hearing about the velcro kind.

 

Thanks!

I've used both. I really like Lite Wraps. They fit my dd really well and I loved he leg gusset set up. I also liked the higher rise on them. That being said, I also really liked the Bummis super brites. The only issue we had with them was the rise sometimes wasn't hi enough if we used a bulkier dipe. I found the Velcro tone good on both and never had issues. My husband really liked the positioning snap on the lite wraps.. Lite wraps did seem to run big, whereas the super brites were pretty true to size in my experience.

Bummis were great but my velcro needs to be replaced since they were handed down. Used with only one child previously, but velcro is shot.  Like completely.

 

I think I will be grabbing some litewraps for this newborn too. They look so cozy!

I really liked litewraps in size preemie and newborn but after that, they were too roomy.  My velcro held up great but the leg gusset elastic was shot after the 3rd kid used them.  I also never washed them with the diapers, which made them last longer, I'm sure.  I got a few hand-me-down superbrites for baby #4 and it is our last so I can't justify spending the money on more litewraps but if I needed covers or was planning to have more, I would buy them again in a heart beat!
