Is there such a diaper that's good for super chunky thighs...

no inner fleece, no microfiber, TRIM aaaand absorbant?? I need something that meets all the requirements stated above, esp. something that will fit under regular clothes. She's short and chunky as it is, so I don't want to have to squeeze her in pants.

i'd try a side snapping diaper. I think my bamboo ai2s are super trim, and they only have bamboo touching baby. I can make a cotton version as well for moms that prefer cotton.

With GDiapers thigh size does not matter because of the way they are cut. They also don't add any bulk to the hips. We pad fold a flat diaper inside for day, and his jeans fit great.

I don't like them for night though. Leaks!

Thanks everyone! Any other suggestions? Right now she's in a padfolded flat with a econobum, but it's still a little too bulky for my taste and I'd prefer a AIO/2.

The diapers with the gentlest elastic I have found are BGE (natural fibers against baby) and Alva stuffed with 2 3-layer bamboo inserts. Both options are very trim and have very gentle elastic. Most of the alvas have suedecloth inner, but a few have fleece.

Re: Is there such a diaper that's good for super chunky thighs...

Yet again I have to suggest Greenline diapers. The legs will fit anywhere from skinny newborn to a 3 year olds! The soakers are super super thirsty, and when my LO is wearing hers, she fits into all her normal clothes. She's stocking covers tomorrow. There is a learning curve to putting them on, and they're not as one-step as AIO, but I love mine.
