Re: LOOK AT HOW TRIM! :Alva POST YOUR ACTION SHOTS!

Here are pics with the largest rise... better? I didn't have as many red marks and no leaks (and the flat was completely drenched after 2 hours) so maybe this is it? I do know that my first 2 Alva's that I tried were the cow minky and the green dot and I've heard rumors they are cut bigger, so maybe that was my problem. Perhaps I'll try the middle rise on those and the large rise on the rest...

I think it looks much better! I think.the higher rise in general takes away some of the trimness but it doesn't matter as long as it's a good fit. These pics look almost exactly like the fit on my DS. It is a bit trimmer with the Alva bamboo inserts, but just a bit.

I was iffy on buying them because i am a HUGE BG elemental fan. But I must say I am probably going to sell most of my bg elementals!

In BG elementals dd is on the 2nd rise (almost completely opened if she grows anymore!) In Alva she is on the smallest rise and the tabs are overlapped! She is 16lbs and 30" tall.
Oops, I meant to quote this in my other post. To OP: really, you would sell elementals for these?! I've never tried them but I'm just surprised to see that. Sounds nice for such a cheap diaper.

You can order directly from alvababy.com. If you order 20 items I know shipping is free. Also there are a couple sellers on ebay - http://www.ebay.com/itm/1-BABY-AIO-Re-Usable-CLOTH-DIAPERS-NAPPY-1-INSERT-H05-/290571044971?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item43a762 486b#ht_4306wt_920
That is a link to one of them. But I know a lot of the star prints have fleece inside, so definitely ask before you buy if you want suede cloth specifically.

While I do still adore my BG elementals. I am so sick of the PLAIN colors and how much rinsing I have to do (I have really hard water). If I change my wash routine even just a little I have issues.Plus I feel bad when the diapers get holes in them because of the price. If I get holes in these diapers or if the PUL detaches I'm not going to feel *that* guilty about it ya know?

Totally makes sense. 'm happy with my BGE's, Flips, and SoftBums but just might give these a try. Thanks
