Can you recommend a T&T dipe???

My dd has chunky thighs (in relation to her small waist). So serged edges cut into her thighs and leave red marks. They tend to turn inward, KWIM? I'm looking for turned and topstiched leg openings, side snapping, or front snap with 2 rows (to adjust waist and legs separately), or a fit made for chunky thighs. Does anyone have a recommendation? Elbees fit great, but they're pretty pricey, and I was also looking for some cute dipes. Thanks!

Re: Can you recommend a T&T dipe???

i really like pattynaps (she does both t&t and serged edges) - she doesnt' stock a lot so i'd probably suggest looking in fsot for teh moment.

BBL also very popular although i haven't tried them

You could try Little Beetles. They are T&T and fit my chunky thighed daughter great. They have only one row of snaps, with an extra on a wing. They stretch great. My 19 lb. 13 month old can wear them and so can my 4 yr od 40 lb. girl. ( I had to use one in a pinch for overnight) www.betterforbabies.com These are low rise and very trim dipes. Very absorbant.

Re: Can you recommend a T&T dipe???

I have a few t&t'ed fitteds, I could gusset the legs for you, which are better for chunckier thighs. It does not look like my dipes are adjustable from the pic.s but I have put the the bottom snaps one back from the top snaps as my daughters thigh muscles grow so they are somewhat adjustible by waist and leg measurments, but the gussets make them the best because they will still hold in the solids, but it stretches the elastic a bit so that it does not bite into chubbier thighs

Re: Can you recommend a T&T dipe???

I got a Pattynaps off the FSOT and the legs gapped on Isabel. And she has 11.5 inch thighs.

My fave T&T is BBL - Isabel has a 15-inch waist and 11.5 inch thighs and I can get a good fit with the front-snapping, single row of snaps BBL fitted. Little Beetles are nice too, but I'm not as secure with the leg fit as I feel with the BBL legs.

Swaddlebees OV fitteds are a nice fit on her, too, but they aren't her most absorbent dipe. I have a Fanciful Fanny prefitted and one of the FF night dipes and they fit nicely, too. Even tho I should have gotten a medium and not a large prefitted.
