Post Which velcro diaper closure would you choose?

Ok I need your help! I'm trying to create a unique diaper style to encorporate my favorite features of diapers into one! Of the two options which would you prefer (reason why would be excellent as well)



1) Velco fabric attatchment (like Grovia)
Pros - No stratchy block to rub on babe's belly
- Precision fit... unlimited placement options to get the right waist
Cons - Will likely not wear as well as traditional velcro



2) Belt over top of regular velcro (like Gabby's)... please excuse the photo I have no idea why it is a man wearing a diaper but it's more of the style I'd be doing than the baby version (want the belt to cover all of the exposed velcro, baby photos I could find the belt was too skinny)

Pros - Covers the block of velcro
- KEEPS the diaper on! My daughter was a nudist and would constantly streak!
Cons - Takes a little longer to do up

3) Your suggestion! I want to do something a little different for a one size cover and snaps are unfortunately not an option I wish to consider.

I looooooooove loop fabric panels!!! Grovia's is good, I have not had the issues with it that I would have expected from "word on the street", they wear just fine for me, no serious pilling or loss of stickiness in hook tabs. However I do have soe old grobabys that are not so great.

Imse Vimse also uses a loop panel and it is nice too.

For my oddly shaped DD you just can't beat the fit on those covers, that is why I love them

I really like the hook and loop fabric I got. It still looks great after a few washes and the laundry tabs work awesome.
