FB, First Quality but look like Seconds?!

I had ordered 12 FB's before the price jump and have received them. Most of them look fine, except I noticed some of them measure a little larger than others of the same size. From what I understand that can happen. Whether it is by length or by width, I've noticed there is a little bit of a difference...

But the one thing the really makes me wonder is the fact that one of them has elastic that was sewn longer on one side than the other. This isn't a little bit of a difference, this is a fairly significant difference. It obviously won't ruin the function but I'm just wondering if anyone else has noticed this!!!

Jeez my seconds that I have don't have a single flaw, yet this is noticable and it's a "first quality" hmmm...

Re: FB, First Quality but look like Seconds?!

This is my biggest peeve with fb, the sizing and quality issues. I've returned fb that were purchased as first quality but were seconds. One was nearly an inch and a half wider in the crotch. Its too bad because I think fb could be a great product but the quality issues are terrible. I doubt I would ever buy any more due to this. If I did I would buy seconds, half the time you get seconds as first quality anyway.

I would contact FBs and tell them you want first quality diapers in exchange for the seconds they sent you. You paid for first quality diapers you should get first quality diapers.

Okay, so it's not just me! I got a FB right before the price jump too, and the large I ordered was almost the size of a XL!! I thought maybe they had changed their sizes or something.

I have noticed this consistently over the last year or more with Fuzzi Bunz. I bought one in EUC here on FSOT a few months back that was first quality but had the big difference in the elastics length from one leg to the other. It still fits fine. But yeah, they are pretty consistently bad about keeping things uniform.
