Boingos, what am I doing wrong?

I constantly have a problem with the dipe staying up when I use them. I'm using the angel wing fold. I pull it very snug. It and his pants fall down wether I attach the Boingo straight across or angle it down. Unless I have a very snug fitting cover, his pf and his shorties with a drawstring will completely fall off. I don't have this problem with a snappi even if I only use two legs of it.

A picture would be great. Otherwise I'm clueless.

He is 18 months, 23 lbs. If I use an oversized pf, I can use one and it's fine. It's when I use two that's the problem.

I use the bikini twist, but I fold the sides in (kind of like a jelly roll) and then on the hips I use the boingos like a side snapping diaper... Does that make any sense? I think there's a YouTube video that can show u too...

With boingos, the trick is to fasten side snap style, so for the angel wing fold bring the side hip flaps in under the front center panel and then fasten.

This right here has just changed my opinion on Boingos. Thank you! It works now!
