Double Gusset (like RARs) If you want to check them out, they are under the "colorful snap diapers with gussets" on the alva website.

Re: Alvas - yea or nay?

They are VERY bulky, I have some that I just can't use yet they are just too big. I use other ALVas with no problem. I cut a second pocket opening in all mine. I figure they have no resale value anyway, so it doesn't matter make them easy to use! The suede cloth doesn't fray or go wonky or anything

I hate my double gussets and just sold then. I didn't like having both a front and back opening and they just fit weird for us.

Re: Alvas - yea or nay?

I love the regular ones! I find them trim and easy to stuff, and hold up well even in hot water washing. (Though I don't have extremely hot water.)

Re: Alvas - yea or nay?

I have regular Alva's and would like to try the dgs. The regulars are good for the price though I've had a couple leaks and they do leave red marks on my DD's chunky thighs. The dgs are supposedly bigger so I hope they'll fit my kiddo better.

Do Alvas come in hook & loop now? I did like Alvas but snaps just don't work for DS.

What a great idea... so do they self-agitate now? If so, I'm definitely going to order some prints!

You can get them co-ops as a custom order

Re: Alvas - yea or nay?

The newborns come in Hook/loop I wish wish wish WISH WISH regulars had h&l... or wait, on second thought my bank account is very very VERY happy that the regulars DON'T come in h&l

And I think they would agitate out, I use homemade bamboo inserts and about 75% of the time they do.

Re: Alvas - yea or nay?

The Alva website is SO confusing! Is there any difference between the many series? (did I even word that right! LOL) I'm wanting to get a few for the sitter but have no idea which to order and how to navigate their site!
