Well, I only have one, and it mostly fits everywhere but the waist... So would I still measure the hip on that? Measuring the hip- would I just measure hip to hip? Do I double that? Or just leave it? And is rise from crotch to top of front waist band? Or front to back?
interlock will be more like the fleece you have, no drawstring or elastic, the interlock is stretchy enough to hold it up. in that case, you'll want to measure the waist to ensure the best fit.

hip measurements are from hip to hip, then doubled. a large hip measurement will likely be in the 20-22" range.

Rise is from the back (where you want the soaker to hit) under the crotch to the front. I'd advise measuring over your fluffiest diaper! A large rise is usually in the 20" range.

I always think of the hip and rise as being a bit of a square. 20x20 will be a good fit. 22x22 etc. Give or take of course, all babies are different.
