Are the cotton covered Imse Vimse covers as waterproof as the Bumpy soft?

I got one yesterday and the fit is perfect on my girl. I'd like something other than boring white but was wondering if the rest are as waterproof since they have cotton outers.

I found that like with every cotton outter covers, they'll wick r leak faster than just pul covers.
Moisture is drawn by cotton at leg and waist. So if you don't have a heavy wetter or you change very often, they would work.

We use the IV cotton velour covers (the striped ones) and LOVE them. I have never ever had one wick or leak or even feel damp. They are our going out covers when I can't risk using a wool soaker. And the cotton velour ones are so soft - I have to pet the bum when she wears them

I used an organic cotton covered one back when my dd was in mediums, and we never had a leak. I loved that cover!

I don't ever remember having leaks with the two cotton outer Bumpy covers we used. I think it's just good to keep in mind that they *can* be more prone to leaking if the diaper is completely soaked, or if the fit is not optimal. However, in experience, they sure worked fine.

Just another thing to consider...they can get pilly on the bindings if you dry them in the dryer from the start. I line dry them for a number of weeks when they are brand new to prevent pilling of the bindings. Then after they have been line dried for awhile, in the dryer to go every time. Otherwise, they take a long time to dry and they are a bit crunchy on the outside from line drying.

These are my go-to covers. I love them. They only get damp on the outside when DS has soaked his prefold front to back & everything in between. We don't have leaks, and they're great for containment. I have the bumpy day and the organic cotton ones and can't tell the difference in performance.

Just wanted to add that I tried to love the bumpy soft covers, but they just did not work for us. The "soft" covers left red marks. The panel of "loop" just is not enough for the size of "hook" tabs they use on these. I would not recommend the soft covers past size nb or small. At that point they just lay there, or are held, so so worries. But once they are mobile those red marks get pretty bad since they use a really grippy "velcro" on these. I tried both the old style and the new style "soft" and both left marks. It was not just whether the front panel was sewn down that mattered, but it was just the size of the "hook" part of the velcro that left marks. (See reviews at diaperpin.com to read more about the old/new style.)

I have an organic cotton IV cover and it works well. It will wick if I let my son get soaked, but I haven't found one that will not.
