If I like proraps what other cover would I like?

I used Proraps with my older kids, and liked the fit except for the lack of laundry tabs. I got distracted by the cute Grovia prints, and bought some of them for youngest ds, but I'm missing the roominess of my Proraps. I still have Proraps that would fit him, but would like something a bit cuter than plain white. What else is a similar fit but would have laundry tabs?b I'd also consider snaps but it must be two row, with the second row placed further in like on FB.

I forgot about Thirsties. I have an old one without the laundry tabs, but it looks like they have laundry tabs now. The one I have is a small. Do the duo wraps have a similar fit, or are only the sized ones similar?

IME, the closest to them was the ME covers. I didn't like the Thirsties at all, especially the Duos. I don't think the ME covers have laundry tabs though (mine didn't).

My ME covers do have laundry tabs..the Rikki slim fit wrap style. And the duo thirsties covers are a bit lower of a rise and slimmer in the crotch I think...trying to remember.

Have you ever tried to put a strip of velcro over your tabs before doing laundry? They work way better then any laundry tabs I've tried

regular thirsties wraps would be good. they are roomier than the thirsties duo wraps.

i LOVE proraps too! they are my favorite PUL covers. dappis have a smililar fit, i really liked them. they are all white too, but with cotton outers so you could dye them and they're so cheap you could probably get a ton, so you could try out different dye techniques.

Green Earth Covers (I think that's what they are called) are very similar. I too love our proraps but my hands down favorite are Thirsties -- the original ones. I also love Bummis Super Whisper Wraps but they lack gussets.
