flip or grovia?

I've got some prefolds that i'd like to try in either a flip or grovia shell. What are your experiences/recommendations? I love the fit of BG's on my ds, do flips fit the same? I heard flips have bad elastic in them, is that true? I dont much about grovia, except a lot of people seem to like them.

Flips fit much more narrow in the crotch and have a lower rise. I have both and have owned them for over a year and none have had the elastic go bad yet. If you like how BGs fit then stick with Flips because the fit is almost identical. They are also easier to stuff a prefold in.

I like them both, but I prefer Grovia because they have the soft mesh in the inside and their prints are cute. Also, Cottonbabies has Flips Organics seconds on clearance for $14.95 and the Natural Baby Co has Grovia sets discontinued for $12 right now.

I think it depends on the age of your child. If I had a younger baby GroVia would work with prefolds. I have an older baby/toddler and the prefolds are to big for the GroVia shell. They kind of sag and look sad. I love my Flips I think they fit a little larger than the BGs, but otherwise pretty much the same fit. The earlier Flips' elastic was not as great as the new ones. The ones I've been receiving have super tight elastic and have stayed that way. I think GroVia works well with smaller babes and with its inserts. I also find it narrower through the crotch than the Flip. Last thing - the Flip have pockets to hold the prefold in place, GroVia does not.
