Trimmest AIO or pocket diapers?

Hi, I'm trying to stick with AIOs and pocket diapers but I want something trim! What are your favorites? Any opinions? Thanks in advance!

I'm looking at Bumgenius elementals and Swaddlebees simplex, because I read that those are both trim and they get great reviews....but they're so expensive! I've been looking to find some used, but not really having any luck....
Also, trying to stick with one size diapers if I can, to hopefully keep cost down a little bit.

Nanas bottoms are sized but meet all your other requirements. After you sell off and size up the cost will be no more and probably even less then doing one size.

Re: Trimmest AIO or pocket diapers?

I feel like I've tried pretty much all mainstream diapers and lots of WAHM.. here are the trimmest options I know of: Peachy Green, Grovia... followed by Softbums Echo, Fuzzibunz Elite, Swaddlebees Simplex. Feel like I'm forgetting one here...

You can also use flats in flips and under other covers to make lots of diapers super trim.

Which of those is your favorite as far as how well they work?

Re: Trimmest AIO or pocket diapers?

This is a common topic, and the same names always come up...mostly side-snapping sized diapers. Simplex 2.0, bottombumpers sized, peachy greens, grovia (that one is one-size). Good luck!

After CDing exclusively I find that the most trim options are BGE, Simplex sized, and Flip stay dry inserts in many covers. I also love flats and those are very trim also but not a convenience diaper. I didnt like the BGE unless the soaker was detached at the front and found they wore out quicker than most diapers BUT, they were crazy trim and absorbant. We tried Nana's Bottoms a long time ago and for the price they are a great option too

Oh boy... that's a tough one. It's a tie between Simplex (I prefer the OS over the sized, I think it's trimmer in the crotch but love the sized as well), Grovia and Peachy Green. I guess I would pick the simplex as number 1 because of the prints to be totally honest. I trust Grovia and Simplex the most for road trips, naps, etc... they never leak ever for me. I also really like Softbums Echo... I love that they have no rise snaps, lots of insert options, tons of colors and prints to choose from.

Tots Bots are super trim, quick drying and one size. I'm happy with the trimness of Bottombumpers as well. Imagine Stay dry are pretty trim, but tend to have a shorter rise.
