The ones at our target are <i>I Play</i> brand. That's what my son uses, they sell them at all the local swim stores. I love them, he's going on 3 and has thighs like his momma hehe. My DD also has the little two-piece sets and they're just as good.

I dont know about FBs but I use my HHs as swim diapers. It works pretty well except he was JUST geing into the larges, so I got rid of my mediums, and when I use a large as a swim diaper is sags bad because without the stuffings it is too big(I use a premium prefold to stuff)

We have a Bumpy swim diaper <a href="http://www.juliestuff.com/pages/swimdiapers.html" target="_blank">from JulieStuff.com</a> and we love it! So cute on! It snaps only on one side so that it won't just unsnap off for some reason which I really like. Basically, you just put one leg in and then snap up the other.. and it looks so European! Makes me giggle every time I see it on him! :LOL

I was going to get one of those Jenn!<br>
Right now we use the Bummis cotton pull on pant, I got off ebay but <a href="http://www.buttercupbaby.com" target="_blank">www.buttercupbaby.com</a> has some left, I think.

Well I got a regular swim diaper instead of going with PUL because someone pretty knowledgable posted a bit back about needing to let the water move in and out for the baby's comfort and PUL doesn't allow that. I don't know.. I just wanted Nathan more comfortable and I love that I get a kick out of his European behind! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

So which print did you get for Nathan Jenn? My first instinct was the sailing print that you would choose <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
And for the kind we use the brand is Pool Pal I don't remember where I bought it though <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headscratch"> pretty basic very good for chubby thighs <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

those Bumpys are cute! I couldn't find any at buttercupbaby.<br><br>
For anyone that has one of the Bumpy swim dipes, how are they on the thighs?? My chubby thigh guy is pretty picky about tight elastic.

Our swim dipe isn't WAHM made, but it fits our chubster very well...We have one of the "wrap" style ones from One Step Ahead. We have been swimming every M-F for the past 3 weeks, and it still looks brand new.<br><br>
I liked the wrap style b/c I hate to think about having to pull off a messy dipe...it might just spread the mess...ick!<br><br>
Oh, we did size up, because the weight ranges seem <i>really</i> scant. For instance, our 20 lber is in an 18 month size with <b>a lot</b> of room to grow (but we wanted the dipe to last all summer, kwim?) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">
