I've tryed fussybutt fitteds and I just don't see how the expensive and highly coveted el bee could be a better fitted. Out of the two, which would you pick?

well they are in totally different catagories, its like trying to compare granny smith apples to golden delicious, LMAO<br>
firstly elbees are front snap, they are low rise in the front and are bound and super trim in the crotch. Elbee is making a side snapper that is also very low in the front and super trim in the crotch... I just dont see how they can compare when their structures are sooooo different... you can also get sidewalls on elbees <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

ohh and fussybutt actually costs more than an elbee does from the WAHM herself...<br>
(except elbee has the same price for all sizes and fussybutt is like a dollar difference each size)

Well i have tried both and liked both for different reasons. El Bees are so trim and I love the bound edges and front snapping (for now). Fussybutts are of course not as trim but the velour is so soft and squishy and side snapping.<br>
Fussybutts are more absorbant IMO but I wouldn't turn either down if someone offered them to me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Yep, I don't think I could choose. Of course, I've never even held an ElBee (though I've seen one in use IRL once!), but I do just love my Fussybutt fitteds. So incredibly soft and just gorgeous with the embroidery! I think there's a good reason that ElBees are so impossible to get. If one walked up to my door, I'd certainly give it a good home (right next to my Fussybutts!). <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Well I have never tried either LOL but the el bees aren't any more expensive than the fussybutts...They cost roughly $20.50 US without sidewalls or $24.50 US with sidewalls. Looking at the fussybutt site the range appears to be similar in price for the different sizes.<br><br>
Fussybutts look really cute but I agree that they don't look anything like an el bee so I guess eventually I would like to try both <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> ....waiting patiently for my el bee # to come up!<br><br>

Oh, ok... well I was wanting one with side walls and I seem to remember they cost something like $30. But I didn't think weather that price was in us dollars or not :LOL<br>
Fussybutt is the most expensive dipe I have ever bought <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">:
