My baby has quite chunky thighs and I'm wondering which covers are best at not leaving big red marks on them.

Would the bummis super brites be too tight? I'll be using fitted bamboos underneath.

I've used some fuzzibunz and had no problems and I heard they were particularly suited to chunky thighs. Ds has the waist on the tightest setting and the legs on the third snap!! Anyone btdt?

Wool soakers! Never a mark, plus all the usual positive attributes of wool!

I like Bummis originals or Thirsties for chubby thighs.

My dd has chubsters too and we like wool and fleece soaker, or Thirsties for PUL.

I'm liking the Bummis Original so far for my chubster.

Thanks for your tips. I've not yet tried wool as I'm hoping to keep the bulk to a minimum. I used Bummis when he was a newborn - and thinner in the thigh. Perhaps I'll give them a go again.

Bummis and Thirsties both cut into my sons big thighs because I have to size up, but then make the waist tighter. Then I have 'wing droop' issues. Wool is the only solution for us.

I wonder where my son got big thighs and a small waist....

We use a combination of wool and Bummis Super Whisper wraps, and really like both.

I have a LiteWrap that works well and a wiggle worms cover that I like.

Which wool do you like best for the chunky thighs, those of you that prefer wool?

I like bummis original for my chunky-thighed baby. But I hear it doesn't cover fitted real well. i use prefolds and it works beautifully.
For wool, I like covered caboose. its bulky though, and seems to have a really high rise on both my girls (4.5mo in a medium and 2yo in a large).

My baby has super chunky thighs. The best ones for him have been Thirsties, Imse Vimes (super cute too!) and fleece. This Mama makes awesome fleece soakers http://http://hyenacart.com/lessonsinlifeboutique/ I'm having some made for DS right now.

Not sure if it's just on my end but that link isn't working for me.

I love Thirsties for chunky thighs but around the house we usually use fleece or wool interlock pull on covers
