Favorite Lg sized velcro AIO?

I get to this place with every baby and then I'm baffled. My OS are getting too small on my 8mo. I'm looking for non-mf, doesn't need to be fancy, aplix/velcro/sticky tape closure size large diapers. Can be WAHM, spam is fine.

Thinking back, I've tried L BG's and they weren't absorbent enough. I've tried bottombumpers side snaps and osocozy. I'm not a huge fan of birdseye. I'm wondering how I would like the square tab velcro, I generally stay away from them. They look like they would be uncomfy on a chubby baby. I'm not apposed to a pocket, I guess, if I can stuff with a flat or pf, but I would prefer an AIO.

My sister has been going through this with her 2 year old. He has been in BG AIOs (stuffed with an extra doubler in the pocket for absorbancy) larges since he was 8 or 9 months. He was 2 in June. The velcro barely makes it around the waist now.

Ragababe - spendy but has a good rise, back coverage.

Tot bots OS new version is working for her right now. It is stretchy enough that the gets good coverage with it.

Drybees size large are also big (bigger than the BG larges). The newer style have a pocket to stuff.

I also got her the new Thirsties AIO (size 2). This is bigger but not that big. He is going to outgrow it soon - the above have bigger footprint/sizing.

The lady that created Koala Huggerz sent me one of her new AIO's. The aplix is like Chelory and they really run big. There's a lot of coverage in the crotch (it's wide). They are really trim but yet still absorbent. She's sells them off of her website and I think she sells them on Ebay as well (they are not alvas... I promise you!)

Drybees AIOs run big so the Larges should work for you. They are microfiber but do have a pocket so you can add extra absorbency if you need to (I have some on clearance if you are looking)

Otherwise I would recommend SoftBums (as an AI2 so you don't have to stuff a pocket). If you don't like microfiber, you can go with the bamboo pods (VERY absorbent and squishy) or you can use flats/prefolds in them. The Echo shells (narrower in the crotch and no pocket option) fit up to 35lb and the Omni shells (wider in the crotch -but still narrower than a BG for example) and has a pocket option) fit up to 40lb.
