Re: Alva stealing prints?

Join Zulily or any other deal of the day site and at least once a week, you will see the rebranded Alva diapers come through with a different name on the label. And something else that is infuriating to me is that they try to make people feel like they are getting a good deal - A $25 diaper that we have marked down to $12.99!!!! Hurry and buy them before they are gone! But those who are familiar know they are all $4.00 diapers.

And I don't intend to make anyone feel bad. One of the first diapers I bought was a Kawaii years ago when I didn't know all about this. But hopefully, when we know better, we do better.
I have complained to Zulily MANY times and they SWEAR nothing they sell (for 10 bucks each) is a rebranded Alva even when I showed that for several brands they offered the pictures on Zulily were takes DIRECTLY from the ALva website. They are totally ripping people off and it's why I no longer buy from Zulily.
