DS = no hips, skinny thighs & no butt

I have went through a bizillion different kinds & brands of diapers to get the "perfect" fit on my DS. On top of that, he is a heavy wetter & I am a perfectionist as far as fit is concerned.

I have retired that obsession & concluded nothing is going to be an amazing fit because he has no hips to hold them up, no thigh chub to keep them up & no booty to hold them on! Lmao!!!

I could have saved myself hundreds if I would have realized this sooner!

DS2 was and still is a stick and snaps tend to sag on him if that makes sense.

What seems to work best and what are you going with?

My dd1 was like that. So skinny. Nothing OS really fit her until she was about a year old, and even then it wasn't great. (New baby has the chubbiest legs, they are awesome).
I would have gotten my money's worth with a sized stash with her; she would have worn smalls for at least a year.
Eventually I gave up on fit/looks, and just went for "no leaks."

Side snapping works great on skinny babes, we loved GroVia AIO's.

Re: DS = no hips, skinny thighs & no butt

My son was very curvy. Hes just now thinning out and hes 3. Hes got legs, thighs, booty and belly. My dd is much thinner. Long and solid but not chunky at all. I am finding things I loved with him I now HATE with her. I loved thirsties stuff with him but with her I just do not get a good fit. Both fit well in bumgenius pockets. The old stand by. Not super trim but functional. Seems like trim sometimes = not absorbant enough for us.
