PUL cover for over workhorses or contours?

I have Flip covers which I like for my prefolds, but they don't quite work for my bigger simple fitteds & contours. I feel like I'm pushing and tucking unsuccessfully at times. I have some wool on the way (Yippee!), but haven't tried any other PUL covers.

Any mamas use WHs, Sandy's or contours w/other covers?

Blueberry Coveralls, Thirsties sized, and Bummis work well over fitteds. Bummis super lites are kind of stretchy so don't add much bulky to an already full fitting diaper. Blueberry Coverall fit over anything and work well for trifolding too. HTH!

I like Thirsties covers a lot. I have both sized and Duo Size. I think I prefer the Duo Size because if you ever need to super stuff, you can always make the cover a little bigger (like at night).

I use flips over yellow edge and red edge workhorse just fine. Our flip is on the lowest setting. It's our go to night time diaper. No leaks. I've had good success with blueberry covers too

I'm in the brown edged & they almost work, but I end up having to stuff around the leg openings. Not quite wide enough for us unfortunately .

Re: PUL cover for over workhorses or contours?

I'm trying to figure out this right now too! I LOVE my Sandy's fitteds, and I've been using Bummis pull-ons or wool at home (both of which I LOVE!), but can't do either while we're out. Pull-ons make her clothes WAY too bulky, and my Sandy's are too old to use wool while we're out. So... I'm going to try Flips and see how those work. Yes, I have to stuff, but I just did a test run (pee and poop), and they were fine.

I still would love to try Bummis Super Brite again though (we used them over prefolds at the beginning), but I'm just not sure what size to try over our Small Sandy's. :/ And the Blueberry Coveralls. I only have the Size 1, and she just outgrew that size... before I even tried them over fitteds.

Thirsties Duo covered our fitteds that Flip couldn't cover.
