Tell me...why Goodmamas?

So, I have been reading about all the stalking, and aside from being the hot commodity of the day...what's so wonderful about the Goodmama's? (read my question in the informative sense and not at all snotty.)

I mean, her flash advertising about "Be a Goodmama" did do its job as I felt adequately guilty about NOT being a goodmama by not owning one.

But I would like to know what all the rave is about...in terms of what's great about the diaper.

Re: Tell me...why Goodmamas?

super stretchy and squishy soft
wonderfully comfortable
hard to find a similar product (bamboo velour is expensive and hard to work with unless you have mad skill)
very absorbant yet trim
*true* one size making it easier to justify cost

Re: Tell me...why Goodmamas?

What differentiates them from some of the mainbrand bamboo velour one size?

What main brand bamboo velour os? I don't know of others? For me that is what it is. I love BV fabric. I want my whole stash to be BV.

Re: Tell me...why Goodmamas?

GMs are what got me started on fitteds. I like the way they fit DD and that they are OS. The prints are very cute too (though I am a bit concerned that our stash is uber girly when it ought to be more GN for longevity).

There are tons of other really wonderful fitteds out there--some with velor insides (not sure if bamboo or cotton, but they both have worked for me). To name a few: Susie One Size, Pampered Cheeks, The Fanciful Fanny

Another fantastic fitted (though not velor) is SBish. I just tried mine and I can tell I have to do some major reshuffling of the stash now so I can get more.

Re: Tell me...why Goodmamas?

I don't know of anything that is like a GM. the nearest is probably SOS, and they don't fit anywhere near as long as a GM. My GMs fit my huge 3 yo ds1 (I put one on him for a laugh) The SOS is almost too small in the rise for my 9 month old ds2. So for me, the fit, and the fact that they are a TRUE one size does it for me.

Re: Tell me...why Goodmamas?

Thanks...not feeling nearly as old as I thought I would. Just trying to get really adjusted to saying I'm in my 30's. Haha.

So is it the velour/softness or the fit. If they weren't as soft would you still buy for the fit and visa versa?

The softness and the look are just bonus to me. If the diaper does not work and does not fit, I don't care what it is. GM just work and fit very well for us. I think that is what people lose sight of. For instance, Mutts are a great diaper and while they worked well, the fit was not quite as nice on DD. So I let it go--even though it absorbed well and was darn cute.
