What cover am I?

Okay.. DS is offically in small covers now (for about a minute).. and I'm becoming more and more picky about my covers....Here are my "qualifications"... what cover satisfies all of them??

- Trim (Holy monkey... I love Litewraps because they are bulletproof for us.. but yesh, are they huge!)
- Leg gussets.
- Laundry tabs OR snaps. (I love prowraps.. but no laundry tabs just don't work for us).

Okay ladies... name that cover! I would LOVE to hear suggestions of regular covers and maybe some wool or fleece suggestions as well.

Bummi's super whisper wraps would meet those qualifications. MotherEase airflow will as well, and I have 2 brand new I just listed in FSOT

Those are the only two covers I have tried. I like both!

We have some BSWW... but they don't have leg gussets... so I'm NOT a fan.. I guess I'm odd man out..

The Airflow is good. I too am not a fan of the BSWW. Proraps have a snap version of their covers.

Re: What cover am I?

bumkins are super trim, have tabs, and mini gussets
hummmmm there has to be more out there
trim wool is a lot harder to come by unless you use non recycled and then it can get pretty pricey....
we have a little beetle from the fsot but they are so much new and we just got a very trim wool wrap from zoocrew10. It doesn't have tabs but I'm sure you could request them. She does applique too on request. Well sewn ..VERY TRIM

You might give the bsww's another try once you get to size medium. The 'built-in' leg gusset really works for us once we got to that size. We didn't like the bsww cover in the NB and S sizes because they are rather stiff when they are that tiny. But now that we're in mediums they are our bullet proof cover, and the size range is so big that my 7 month old and my 24 month old both fit this cover very well. Trim. Fast. Easy.

oops no gussets on the wool. CYA does wool wraps with gussets and she sells them on ebay auctions and an ebay store.

Re: What cover am I?

I used to have leg gussets as a major requirement on my covers too...until I tried WiggleWormBottoms. I know they don't have gussets, but seriously, give them a try. We've been using them for 2 months, DD is exclusively breastfed and we've NEVER HAD A BLOW OUT!!!

Also, Amy is a super sweet mama. She will work with you to make the exact cover that you want and will get it to you insanely quickly!

Celtic wolf covers have gussets, snaps, and are trim. They are wool covers.

They are hard to get though.

Have you tried Gerber covers they are actually a lot better than I had imagined. I also love Litewraps but their sizes are very very generous, which can be a good thing, but makes moving up a size hard. Gerbers I think cover all your requirements. Also have you considered stanictinator covers. They don't have gussets but I have one and I love it, it is wool but feels like a T-shirt, they also have PUL variety as well, I don't know if the PUL have gussets or not.
