Many suggest you do this over a trim-fitting diaper, but each WAHM is different, so I would ask.

NEVER A STUPID QUESTION!!

I always thought you measure naked for a diaper rise and over a diaper for a cover rise- :

Me too . . . butt *pun intended* when this question was asked a few times before I was surprised that WAHMs came back with different responses.
