I absolutely love wool...except that it's so darn hard to fit clothing over!<br><br>
Can anyone suggest a trim but reliable wool cover?<br><br>
Wool covers that we have and love....SP merino wool (our favorite), BJ Marketplace soakers (love them and are trim but wick too easily under clothing), and Cuddlebuns merino wool (so soft but not really that trim under clothes).<br><br>
Suggestions anyone?

I really like SugarPeas under clothes, and most of our Bizzy B Hive covers are trim too. For knitted, I have found Simply Sage pretty trim for us. I am sure it just depends on the wool she used.

I love our Fuzeasys under clothes, very trim. And our BBH's are really trim as well.<br>
Kiwi Pies are awesome as well.<br>
I am going to get a size 2 Celtic Wool and with our trim diapers I am hoping that will be an option as well.<br><br>
I don't really do knitted wool under clothes either, I tend to use those when I know we can show them off.

I find our Cuddlebuns merino wool very trim under cloths. It's one of our main covers for daytime. Of course if we have a rather untrim diaper on then it becomes difficult to get those pants up and over.

First Class Baby wool rocks. It's trim yet reliable and I love the front elastic at the waist. You don't get that weird bulge on the front of their pants.

It's interesting to read what one person thinks of as trim vs. another. I guess a lot of it depends upon the build of your child!<br><br>
How about Bumpys? Nikkys? How are these covers under clothing?

Kiwi Pies are the only wool we use! They're fine under clothes. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

BULKY. But hey, they still work <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>
I have really, really stocky boys which doesn't help one bit. Cloth diapers give them serious back! I like FuzEasy's, too. In fact, that's all I'm using right now. But I'd love to try new woolens!

I see FuzEasys mentioned several times... how do FuzEasys and FuzBombs compare for trimness? How about fit? It seems like the easys would be more adjustable...<br><br>
I actually find that our LTK soakers are pretty trim under pants. PWP is good too. But our Loveybums is the best... why oh why didn't I get another while she was open for customs???<br><br>

I love my tootsweet under clothes, i can't get my BBH under clothes except for a blanket sleeper, that's why it's my night time cover.... it's very bulky in my opinion but i think it's sized differnat then the new ones sold on MDF, because all thoes say a small fits 15-25lbs and mine has a tag that says it fits 8-25lbs??? So maybe that's why i think it's so bulky...

I can't say for sure yet, but I think <a href="http://community.webshots.com/photo/133626252/219452685FFRALw" target="_blank">this'll</a> be pretty trim on ds once I get my wool to make it. Our koala modeling the acrylic version from the <a href="http://community.webshots.com/photo/133626252/219453157ZETpyy" target="_blank">front</a> and <a href="http://community.webshots.com/photo/219452578/219452578TyZWso" target="_blank">back</a>

I know I am going to really show my age here, but...<br><br>
I really liked the Nikky covers in the wool and the cotton. Also, my second choice was the Biobottoms.<br><br>
They were not thick at all. Good for daytime.

Simply Nurtured....Biobottoms are great! I had a friend give me one once, but I have heard that they don't make them anymore. Is that true? I never see them anywhere.<br><br>
As for the Nikkys....they are good under clothing?

am interested in this topic too!!! So you guys talking about wool covers under normal cotton/polyester type clothings, ie pants/shorts/overalls/onesies?<br>
I like wool, but because of compression wicking, tend to use the knitted soakers as our outer clothing as well. Would love to be able to use wool and still dress up in overalls when we go out...

Luxe Baby and Kiwi Pie trim cut. These are both difficult to get a hold of, but super trim and work great under jeans and such.

For knit wool, I like my BBB best, but can't get one in a med to fit Holden currently <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> For wool fabric, I like my BBH, KP and mine best. I keep forgetting I have a holiday Fuz set - gotta try that out tomorrow <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
