I just kind of realized that some bottoms may not fit with cloth dipes.
What are some clothing brands that work well?
How about euro brands like Oilily and Hanna Andersson?

What about babyGap?

AAAAGGGH!
Another twist to the cd plan!

I have good luck with Carters or anything really if it is knit. I also do crazy stuff, like I bought the cutest 3T beach style shorts for DS, they fit him like pants! A bit wide, but it works. I will put them on him tomorrow & link up a picture.

I haven't had any troubles fitting clothes over DS's diaper bum. The only thing I need to size up in is onesies (which I avoid now that he's older anyways). I buy mainly Gap, Old Navy, and Osh Gosh.

I don't ever have a problem with Baby Gap clothes fitting over CDs, but I don't use anything too bulky outside the house.

Well, I have had problems with anything that's not stretchy, but DS is a hoss, so maybe it's him, not just the dipes. Big belly & fat thighs in general. I use pretty trim AIOs (FMBG, Daisy Doodles) when I want to put him in his denim or twill overalls in any brand. I think Gap clothes are great when you size up, but sometimes get too long for him, yk?

I haven't had many problems with either of my two, but they are both on the small side. We have tons of gymboree and it works well. Hanna stuff seems made for cloth. It looks funny to me when DD wears it with a disposable.

Hanna and Zutano work well, as does Painting Red Rhinos. I sometimes size up too, but that is because my kid is stocky.

Hanah, Baby Gap, Old Navy, Target's Circo brand and Cherokee Brand, Carters's on the little ones, Wal-Mart's Faded Glory brand tends to run big.

All Knit... Baby B'Gosh, Carters, Gap, Gymboree... If it's knit, I know it will fit him just fine.

Jeans, Carters have worked better for us than Gap.

We've only ventured through 2 sizes, so my experience isn't too much yet.

Cartiers seem to be bigger in the waist and rear.

Anything knit is fine for cloth diapers - Carter's, Gymboree, Old Navy, Target - all of the knit stuff works. The Carter's knit bubble suits are fabulous for summertime. It's jeans and khakis that I've had the most trouble with. Overalls work really well, but true jeans are very hard to find a good fit. You definitely need to go up at least a size on those and then they're often WAY too long. MIL keeps buying jeans and khakis in Mikah's true size and to get her to wear them I've had to resort to putting her in (gasp) disposables on occasion.

Gymboree runs big! My little girl cannot keep their pants up without a CD on. With a CD, they are perfect in her current size. We have to size up in other things, depending on fabric.

hanna clothes fit superbly over cloth.

ds, even at 20 mos, doesnt have much of a wardrobe. a few homemade pairs of pants for the rainy season (now passed) and a bunch of rib knit shirts. in the warm seasons he wears a wool cover, soaker, or wool pants and a shirt (sometimes no shirt, depends on how hot it gets)

this babe coming in june will no doubt spend her first months.. the whole summer long. in little but a diaper and sometimes a soaker or cover

Well who knows when this girl is coming really... I didn't know I was preggo until I was 13+ weeks! I never got my period between my daughter weaning and getting pregnant (haven't had it since Jan 2002), so I have no idea on dates. One U/S at 18 weeks is where we got out dates. At least I know she will come out when she is ready!

I wish you the best of luck too! I am so excited about this HB!

(sorry to hijack the thread... )

Well, as of right now I only have 2 girls so it's been super easy. I am assuming that when #3 (boy) arrives late this summer my choices will be a little more limited. Anyway, my youngest wears mostly Gymboree, BabyGap, Old Navy, and the like. We've had the best luck with knits. When they are smaller it was easy just putting them in a one piece romper or a dress.

The ONLY clothes DS has are Carter's and Gap(with the touch of Tommy or Polo, but they run small). I used these clothes before CDs and I havent had to go to a bigger size now with the CDbooty.

The Lands End stuff - online and at Sears - are great for bubble butts - the one piece rompers, bubble shorts, overalls, ...

I just buy a size or 2 up. Almost all of our clothes are from The Children's Place and I don't have any problems with fit when I buy up a size.

The jeans we've found that fit best over CDs are Sprockets (at Mervyns).

Dd can't wear any Old Navy clothes with her CD bum. Their clothes must be for skinny kids who wear sposies...cause I put her in underwear this week, and her jeans from ON were still too small!
We mostly just do dresses because a huge bum is no problem then.
Gymboree clothes run pretty big, too.

Hanna and Lands End. Lots of diaper room and they don't look "weird" with a huge cloth butt, either. Almost like the clothes are cut for cloth dipes.

Hanna, gymbo, and lands end work well for us. baby Gap is good, too.

Old Navy, however, does not work well at all. DS has a pair of jeans from there; with a CD they are too tight, and in a sposie really loose. Annoying.

mostly WAHM, sometimes WOHM to my : two boys.

Interesting that people have trouble with Old Navy clothes. Today Sid was in one pair of ON shorts, a pair of ON trousers and now ON jammies with no problem. Exactly the same clothes he wears with disposables and they're fitting fine with cloth.

But my guy is a little peanut. 9 months old tomorrow and just eeking up to 15lbs.

Hanna's are wonderful! We love them, and there is an outlet nearby! Yey!
Whatever you do, don't buy Gymboree fitted jammies. Yikes! They look like they are painted on. I bought ds a pair of 6/9 months when he was 5 months and they barely fit him then.
