Re: Love the trimness and fit of gdiapers, but why aren't mine waterproof?

You could try the capri diapers from blueberry. Similar AI2 style

Well I think the problem is anything more waterproof needs to have PUL in it and not the nylon or whatever the g diapers are made of. I guess you could make a diaper just like g diapers with a PUL pouch. I don't know if anyone has done that.

Maybe look into wool or fitteds, they aren't plasticy but also are not trim. Everything else I can think of has PUL on the outside which has the elastic around the leg too.

Capri are not considered trim.

I would say check out grovia. They are snap in AI2 style and considered trim. I don't think they are crazy plasticy looking.

Since the gPant is actually made of cotton, I don't think you are going to get that in any other line.

Grovia's are not a good fit for us :/ I haven't tried Capri yet. I have a couple fitted that she wears around the house and at night but they are so bulky under clothing. I use flips with flats and all the BG diapers as well as my gdiapers. It's good to know that the gdiapers are just like that, and I like that they aren't pul. I was just hoping it wasn't my detergent that was causing it

Maybe check out Bottom Bummers AI2, they are trim and absorbent.

Yeah, you have to change frequently with gdiapers, and doubling up at night helps. Also, hang dry the liners - that seems to make a difference.
