soakers under clothes?

So, I'm still trying to figure everything out. Fitteds & wool, that is... Will a wool soaker fit under her pants? Or does that only work under a dress?

In my experience, a prefold and wool (depends on the type of course) will fit under alot of things. I could *squeeze* him into jeans, but then we had compression leaks. One piece rompers fit really well with no compression. yoga-style pants or shorts were usually fine. Jeans were fine if we went up a size, but then they were too long.

Stick with the rompers and yoga pants! (and dresses, of course, but we don't have that option)

i find that wool is a bit bulkier under clothes compared to a pul cover so I personally have had to upsize on bottoms before. Generally though I think most people buy shorties or longies rather than soakers under clothes...at least at my store they do

I do have skirty/shorties, I was just looking for an option for the hand-me-downs from DD1...don't want them to go to waste! And i'm glad you posted, I think I might like your store. Off to check it out!

I second the idea of going ups a size on bottoms. Or you could just use the soakers and babylegs or legwarmers.
