Would Hemp prefolds be trimmer? They're more absorbant so maybe there aren't as many layers? I think they're more expensive than just plain cotton though.

FuzziBunz have been a much happier fit for us. I've seen some people make comments about the bulk, but to me it's barely noticeable compared to the prefolds.
Eventually I do plan to get some snappis, and see if that helps make things more trim, but for now the prefolds and covers in our house are just for using when the FB's are all dirty.

Another frugal option, if you have a sewing machine, is to come on over to the Diaper Making forum and learn to make them from household fabrics, thrift store finds, etc.
