thirsties bulkier?

Are thirsties bulkier then other prefolds? I hear they are the softest of the soft. Im just curious because of the sales I've been seeing. The reviews have me jumping. Does anyone have a picture of a thisties vs other brand?

I wouldnt say they are bulkier. They are more fluffy in the center soaker section than my other prefolds. But they are much softer and more absorbant too. They work well under my covers. I have a couple colored ones that I just love.

They seem a little fluffier but also more absorbant than my others (of course I'm comparing them to gerber )

Re: thirsties bulkier?

I got the cotton ones. Wouldn't have the $ for 12 hemp ones
I might get some hemp seconds though; only right now they don't have the size I'd need..

Re: thirsties bulkier?

I haven't noticed much of a difference. I think they might be longer, but it could be because they haven't been washed as much as my regular PFs.
