No help here, I'm pin challenged. I honestly find the bikini twist hard to snappi even, it always looks funky.

Yeah, doesn't it? I KNOW I've seen pics here of mamas who use the bikini twish (and there is a pic of a rainbow short bikini twisted AND pinned) without that lumpy awfulness in the front that I get!

That said, my HUSBAND can bikini twist and snappi a prefold!

I can!







I do not know how to tell you how. I just fold over and tuck it in real tight. I do not think there is a bulging issue....

AH HA!!! Fold the front down, THAT smooths it out perfectly!!! And your pins go vertically, I'll try that too.

Hmm, I think these new brown edge pf's might be long enough to do that. I al SO going to try this, THANX!!

I always have to fold down the front when using this twist with a snappi too. It makes a nice trim and snug fold. In fact, sometimes I'd get it too tight (chafing); so I had to watch that too. Let us know how it works out.

Re: Who can pin a " bikini twisted " prefold??

Here is a slide show I did showing how I pin. I don't show how I twist but there are some pics that might help. I fold down in the back if I have extra length (extra poop catcher for runny BF poo) and I don't start my twist until I pull it up in front so the twist is more in the front that in the center if that makes any sense....
