sorry for all the questions but what can i say! im lost!!<br><br>
i have a good assortment of dipes now and i have my favorites for sure..<br><br>
i really like the liz's cloth dipes but as soon as i put a wool cover over its majorly bulky and i cant realy get clothes over it. this is not exclusive to those types of dipes, just what my twins are wearing tonight! lol..<br><br>
i just put them in the dipes, the wool covers and a tshirt cause none of their pjs really would go over all that!!<br>
i love fitteds and wool covers but cant seem to figure out how to dress them like this?<br><br>
i end up resorting to hh's or fb's more b./c of the trimness factor..how do you overcome the bulk!!<br><br>

I use mostly stretchy clothes on my two-especially pants. They both have knit everything. I also tend towards a size up to have the room in the rise so that the cloth diapers will fit, and I can get two seasons out of most of their pants. This winter for my 2 yr old 33 lber I bought 3X and 4T pants and I may need to cuff the pants this winter but they fit, by golly!

Not a problem for me- but then I had my first child in Aristocrats under her clothes during the day (wool was the only thing that stopped her rash and aristocrats were the only wool I knew about back then...) Anything less than an aristocrat is trim for me. We use stretchy sweat pants for my ds -- they are hand me downs in a bigger size that shrunk and have plenty of diaper room.<br><br>
Little Turtle Knits aren't very bulky, neither are Freshies Fittwraps IMO.

When the dipe starts getting bulky....<br><br>
I usually have to size up in clothing anyways because my kids are always off the growth charts for weight (and Kieran for height) so when I switched to cloth I was in luck. And I no longer had to roll up cuffs lol. I find jeans with elastic waists, two piece outfits/jammies (like a top and coordinating bottom) bubble rompers, union suits and overalls to do pretty well with cloth, depending on that combo of brand/size/how big/old your baby is/baby's shape/what dipe your using.<br><br>
Did that make a whole lotta sense? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
Also some wahms sew "cloth friendly" clothing, like Ara's Pants..and I hear that while pricey Hanna Andersson clothing fits over cloth very well, as does Gymboree. (Tho Gymboree runs way small on my kids for some reason)

My DD turned 5 mo this week so when I reached for the size 18 - 24 mo Old Navy pants to put on I expected that if anything they would be too big. Wrong. Couldn't even get close to closing them and the rise in the back was hilarious, it stopped halfway up the diaper. She was wearing a ME onesize and an Ivy Rose wool jersey cover. I thought this was a fairly trim combo, most of my fitteds and soakers are much thicker.<br><br>
For us I think wool pants are going to be the answer, and my pockets and AIOs will be getting a lot more use. Sweats sound like a good idea too. I'm really going to miss seeing all my cute prints this winter, sniff.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mecry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crying"><br><br>

Hi there!<br>
Not only am I a cute diaper addict, I am a cute clothes addict. Eliza has WAY too many clothes from places like Gymboree, etc. My system is that I use bulkier covers and dipes under knit pants or dresses, and trimmer dipes under jeans or other woven pants. So, I wouldn't put my Tuesday Bear wool cover with a cuddlebuns fitted under the little woven Gymboree pants she is wearing today (she is in Angelwraps AIOs), but yesterday she did wear that under her Gymboree leggings.<br><br>
I do find that the back rise is an issue with pants - fortunately I usually buy Eliza little swing tops and leggings, so you can't see the gap - but it also works to tuck in the shirt, sometimes, with shorter shirts. If I was REALLY concerned about trimness under something, I would probably put Eliza in a Happy Heiny's - I think those are my trimmest dipes, all in all.<br><br>
I have to admit that I do like the way a cloth diapered butt looks, though. I am proud of CD'ing (not saying that you aren't, LOL)<br>
and like to show it off - and that little bubble butt is part of it for me. I do want Eliza's clothes to FIT though, LOL.<br><br>
So, what I am trying to say is that if you pick different diapers based on your babies' outfits, you shouldn't have as much of a problem.<br><br>
XOXO

I use stretchy too and Colton just has a big ole bubble but. I actually enjoy looking at it. He cracks me up with his nighttime diaper! During the day i used to let him run around in his diaper until he started taking his diaper off. Now i try to keep him dressed at all times.
