Maybe because it is so trim it needs to be snapped down further? I remember when Flip first came out and people were having bunching issues with the stay dry they recommended snapping down the rise because it was so trim and would hold in place better.

Let us know how that works!

Too bad it's still bunching.......I find inserts bunch up in Flips too, that's why I never used them......if I'm going to deal with bunching and exposed PUL, I'll just use a Flip and insert for way cheaper.......BGE's are $30 here.

Second use; one additional wash so it's a little more prepped: I am still using it with the rise snapped down. It didn't bunch as badly this time, but there was about 1.5" of exposed PUL on either side of the insert.

This exactly. I find the flip "night" inserts don't bunch too bad but they are pretty stiff when trifolded. I must admit I like fleece lined covers better but I do like flip covers for traveling/camping.

Thank u for posting the bunched pics. I appreciate it as I do think exposed PUL irritates my dd's skin. I didnt use bge before but they have tempted me lately. I wouldnt buy the new style. The exposed pul would bug me...and the risk of it leaking around the legs seems high with it bunching.

I don't mind the bunching- happens with flats in flips, a combo I love. My whole reason for loving it is it's a natural fiber slim AIO, a combo I adore! So I ordered one and would order 12 in a heartbeat if I could!

IF it's anything like a Flip with a flat, it shouldn't. I have never had that happen & I always used that combo!

I dont understand. The bunching obviously happens or OP wouldnt have those pics. Im not trying to throw a wet blanket on the new bge lol...but like you said, to me, this is the same as using flats and flips. I was using flats and flips and did have bunching. To me, a $22 diaper shouldnt bunch. Kwim? I know many people have luck with tightening everything up...my only gripe about that is, if I use flips i dont like them to be on super tight bc they leave red marks. That has happened with both my kids..one pretty thin and one chunk.

Just as I imagined... bunchy. How uncomfortable.
