As much as I have tried, I simply can not get a good fit in these. They always gap at the stomach, no matter what. I bought these to go over our overnight diaper because of their roomier fit. We had wicking every night we used these because of the gap at the stomach. Very disappointing. I tried the M and the L over a XL Workhorse diaper with a doubler and both sizes wick.
Great diaper cover!
Great diaper cover! I love that it is fitted without having to worry about adjusting the rise of the diaper which makes the diaper fit better and not leak around the legs. The aplix works very well and allows a custom fit in the waist without having to worry with bulky snaps pressing against my child. A great affordable cover to use over prefold diapers with or without a snappy.
I absolutely love these!
I absolutely love these! Full disclosure: I'm pretty sure most people who use rise snaps care "how the diaper looks" once they're beyond the belly button falling off. I don't care how it looks, I care how it works! We travel all the time, and never use disposables. It's great to be able to wipe out the inside of a cover in a pinch, and these don't collect stink on the inside like the ones with fabric against the skin. I've had nothing but great luck and great comfort for my baby with this versatile and long-wearing cover!
I also found this aplix to be very wide and stiff.
I also found this aplix to be very wide and stiff. They didn't get much use in the newborn phase because of it, and even now at 3 mos they're usually the last covers I reach for because of this. If left in it for more than one change, he gets chafing along the top edge, which is something we don't experience with any other diaper. I think it's solely from how stiff the aplix is, as we have some snap versions and an older aplix version of this cover that we love and have no issues with.
I exclusively use BumGenius Freetime as my stash, but around the time my baby started sleeping through the night, her diapers would leak out the leg (side lying/cosleeping).

I didn't want to buy inserts so I used the thirsties cover I'd got as a gift and it sealed in the wetness and fit over the BG. I LOVE this cover!!
