What are the best unsized prefolds out there?

My 5 month old has long outgrown her yellow GMDs and I'm going to sell them because I don't care for trifolding as much. Instead of going the next size up, I'm thinking of just getting some standard sized prefolds (premium) that will last a good while. She is already over 18.5 lbs. I want good quality, super soft.

I was thinking Bummis? Aren't the whole sized prefold thing supposed to be for trifolding in covers, so they are cut short? I don't mind folding it down a little to make it fit. I'm not going to be using prefolds full time anymore, so I won't get enough use out of sized if I have to keep sizing up constantly.

Imagine unbleached are known for their softness, and while there is a line of sized Imagine prefolds, they also have Imagines in infant and premium. My favorite unsized prefolds, though, are Real Nappies.

No, sized prefolds are also cut wider so that they fasten more easily. The traditional sizes only fasten well on skinny minnies. Check out the dimensions carefully, WASHED dimensions, there is a lot of variation!!
