What should I try next?

I am stuck on bedrest and have baby shower gift cards burning a hole in my pocket so I am going to order a smorgasbord of diapers to try out! I am new to CD and have been diapering my almost 2 yo DD and will be DS in a few weeks. I already have a good variety but haven't loved the fit of anything on DD who is tall and slim. I'm not completely in love yet- so here is what I have tried:
prefolds and covers (for newborn - haven't tried on DD and don't really want to)
BG 4.0s
Charlie Bananas OS
Grovia Hybrid- sold it didn't like it
fitteds with wool at night- really like this combo
flour sack towels for stuffing pockets- I did origami fold this and try it on DD to which she immediately told me "OFF!". LOL
KL0s for newborn so haven't tried yet
BG AIO (tried this on DD didn't like the fit)

Here is what I am thinking of getting one of each to try:
peachy green solo AIO
Grovia AIO
Swaddlebees simplex (sized) and econappi
softbums echo
bottombumpers
itti bitti d'lish SIO
Baby kicks pocket
imagine nb aio
Osocozy aio

Any other suggestions? I am looking for something narrow in the crotch with a trim fit- I'm not opposed to pockets but if I don't have to stuff it I will probably like it better. Should I order one fuzzibunz just to try and compare to BG? And I prefer natural materials. Thanks mamas!

The flats inside of a GroVia shell is very trim. The GroVia, Bottombumpers and Thirsties AIOs are also very trim and great for skinny babies.

we use FB OS elite pockets and BG 3.0 and 4.0s. The FBs are WAYYYY trimmer than BGs!! We love them!

Also, i've recently discovered the Best bottom system and am loving it. Also, quite trim!

And for nighttimes, we LOVE Sbish snapless and wool

HAve fun!

My DD is 23 months and about 23 pounds, so I consider her to be petite. We love fuzzibunz elites on her. In my experience, the minky insert is very trim and absorbent. They also fit her nice and trim through the crotch. I also prefer diapers without the rise snaps (just preference).

Just wanted to share what works for us! Good luck mama!

OS Simplex.

I think you'll find that Swaddlebees Econappis and blueberry pockets in general are as wide as BG. They are sooooo nice though.

I agree Grovia, itti bitti, Bottombumpers are all slim through crotch. Rise is a bit lower on the itti bitti if you have a tall guy though. You've already tried CB's which are as well. I think a lot of the sized AIO's will get you a slimmer fit.
