I'm open to trying WAHM brands or others I haven't heard of... she can fit a Sbish XL OBF decently, but her Goodmamas are starting to have an issue where the first set of hip snaps dig into her sides, as is the case with several other diapers. We got a Piddle Poodle toddler Cadillac off of DS, and that barely snaps on the first set of hip snaps, though we do like it. Any suggestions from anyone with a larger baby that has tried other brands? (Our daughter has special needs, is a VERY heavy wetter due to her size, and unfortunately our pediatrician doesn't feel she will PL any time soon, so we are needing something she can grow with.) Any advice would be much appreciated! Thanks!!!
Oh my gosh... I was going to totally suggest a Todder Piddle Poodle to you and that doesn't fit... hmm... Okay, OsoCozy makes adult AIO's but they are very expensive, they also make adults (I mean, you can get XS adult size) prefolds and covers. I think you should look into those.

I would honestly start looking into WAHMS! I know there are some on Etsy that specialize in larger diapers.

Pianissimo size large or rainshine designs XL might work. Have you tried either of those?

Rainshine Designs XL diapers (fitteds, ai2s, pockets, aios), Orange Diaper Co. XL Loops, Bugga Bugga Boutique XL side snap fitteds, LittleBoppers XL fitteds (these you have to get through a custom order as she is not making the size regularly yet).

She can use the toddle Piddle Poddles, but the first hit snap digs into her hip because it can't meet it's first mate at the waist, if that makes sense. I have put in a message to Pianissimo, and she wrote that if I can land a custom slot, she'd be happy to make one for us. I also messaged Little Fancy Pants and Forty41. I will look into these others that you've all recommended investigating... OsoCozy, Rainshine Designs, Orange Diaper Co., Bugga Bugga Boutique, LittleBoppers... some of these I am not familiar with, so thanks for all of the suggestions!
