Help me find pockets for thunder thighs!

For real. My DD is 18 mos & 28 lbs, but has about 11.5" thighs. We have her in fitteds or PFs & wool at home, but she's in pockets at daycare. The sitter asked if I could switch out the 7 kawaii we've been sending b/c she doesn't like the red marks on DD's thighs. She is really only willing to use pockets. We have a pretty diverse DC stash, all picked up FSOT, seconds, or on a DOTD site. Here's what we have/have had & how the sitter likes them:
*Kawaii--leg elastic too tight
*BG (3.0 & 4.0)--okay, but tend to leak
*RMD--good
*FBOS--good
*HHOS--great
*OhKaty--doesn't like fit
*BB/SB--good
*Kawaii minky--good
*RAR--hate
*Smartipants--didn't like fit

DD is a heavy wetter but gets changed frequently. I'd like to do this kind of on the cheap (I'm not spending $30+ each for 5-7 new BB minky ), as she is 18 mos & is starting to show some interest in PTing. I have no problem w/ used, but the brands she likes are hard to find FSOT...plus I work, so it's not like I can hover over FSOT waiting for new deals to come up. I'm open to other brands w/ similar fits...they just have to be generous & gentle through the thighs & have a generous rise & come in snaps. Honestly, I could buy a batch of HHOS new, but I think they resized or something, right? I hadn't really been paying attention b/c we had an ample stash, but that's all up in the air now . Anyway, any suggestions are welcome, or if you know of any sites that are doing a decent deal, whatever, I appreciate it, thanks!

Sweet peas are generous in the leg. My niece has monster thighs and doesn't get red marks from them.

I have some Tiny Tush Elites that I'm trying to sell. I have them listed. They seem to run big to me but I haven't tried out many brands for comparison.

DS had thick thighs but a skinny waist, here is worked well:

RMD
SoftBums (Echo or Omni, but since you are looking for a pocket, the Omni would work better for you)
Monkey Doodlez Bamboo Doodlez
Snap EZ OS diaper (side snapping so you can make the leg snap looser than the waist snap)

I also think that Tiny Tush Elite would work for a bigger baby. I tried one on my dd, it is just a larger cut diaper. They have a few seconds in their clearance section, and they ship pretty fast.

I really like AMP pockets for how gentle their elastic is.

ds1 was like this and I found that side snap pockets worked the best.

For babies with large thighs I like Snap-EZ, Knickernappies and Green Acre Designs pockets.
