Anyone hate Alva DG/Minky but like the regular PUL version
 
So I just ordered a bunch of Alva DG and 1 Alva Minky... I can't believe how much I hate them. They are horribly bulky on my LO and the waist gapes unless it is on the smallest setting and then it seems way too tight on him.

I'm wondering if it is even worth it to try the regular Alvas... how different is the fit?

I am currently using flips with capri inserts and while I really like that combo... I want some pockets so I can have all my diapers ready to go without having to constantly be reloading in between laundry sessions... Maybe I should just get some BG 4.0s - I'm assuming if I like flips I will like these too... I was just hoping for a cheaper option!

Try the color snap alas ( I think that's what they're called) they fit a lot better!

Regular alva fits totally different than DG or minky so give them a try!

So do you think the regular Alvas are more trim? Is the fit of the print vs. solid regular pul any different? I'm wondering if I should stick to the solid colors?

I not a fan of either and sold my 10 alvas to a friend.

BG snaps fit a bit wonky on my low, I can't fasten the bottom snap and top snap on same row. Bottom snap usually is one less than my top. I get a better fit on my aplix.

The only thing I have noticed is that each alva color or print can have slightly different size wings/tabs but overall they fit well on my chunky boy. I personally like the prints better because the PUL feels thicker.

I just orderd 15 aLVA OS and I am terribly disappointed. Something about the fit on my chunky thighed girl just isn't right. Every time she poops it leaks out around the leg holes! I don't know what to do...
