Don't confuse this sized cover with the Duo Wrap. This one does NOT have snap rise adjustments. This is a true sized cover which comes in sizes XS through Large.
When Thirsties Duo size 2 is getting too small on your toddler, the size Large cover is the next size up. Large is bigger than Duo size 2 but smaller than Duo size 3. It has room enough inside for a nighttime diaper.
The size LARGE of this Thirsties Cover is larger than the Thirsties Duo Wrap size 2.
A true-size diaper cover with snap closure. What is "true-size"? True-size or sized means that it comes in each size, XS, Small, Medium and Large. Unlike an adjustable rise cover or a one-size-fits-all cover, it doesn't have rise snaps, Not everyone likes the bumpy rise snaps on the front of adjustable covers, nor the bulk of the cover fabric in front when the rise is snapped down. This cover is sized so it is made to fit the actual size without rise adjustments. No cover bulk up front! The shape of the cover is not the same as the Thirsties Duo Wrap. It is roomier inside. Don't size up with this cover because it is generously sized. The XS cover is really nice over newborn fitted diapers. It is too big on small newborns, though.
The waist does still adjust since there are many waist snap selections to choose from. I find that not having rise snaps on the front does have an advantage for me when I hold the baby next to my body. It is more comfortable for me. I also think that true-size covers such as this are a bit less confusing for caregivers. It has gentle leg gussets and exposed laminate inside, also known as a wipe-clean interior.100% polyester with TPU laminate. FREE of VOCs, PVC, phthalates, lead, and latex. Another quality CPSIA-compliant, made in the USA diaper cover choice from Thristies.
The size Large is a big cover. If baby has outgrown the Thirsties Duo size 2, the size Large Thirsties Diaper Cover is the next size up after the Duo size 2. It is also a good nighttime diaper cover because it is roomy enough inside for extra doublers.
Small pictured. Very adjustable waist and it has leg gussets.
Size Medium cover with size medium red edge prefold. The prefold lays right in there at full length without folding it down easily. This is a roomy cover. Great for pinning or Snappi fastening. The size Medium fits over the size large Workhorse. Small will fit over small or medium Workhorse. XS works with newborn or small Workhorse. XL Workhorse will work under either the medium or the large cover but I prefer it under the large cover but it depends on the baby's shape. What works with what is variable depending on baby's shape and your preferences for how you like things to fit. Give pinning a try! It really works.

I love the snaps! I have used velcro for 3 kiddos and it has finally worn out and has become a big issue to fix. Snaps are the WAY to GO!
Met my expectations as does all Thirsties products. Bought a size Large for 16 month old. he is 31.5" and 30 lbs. His size 2's were way too small, he outgrew them before his 1st birthday. I needed something bigger. I COULD make the size 3 work but they were a little big and better for my 3.5 almost 4 yr old at night time. These have a great fit for nap and bedtime! At nap time, I use either a large or medium prefold, folded pad fold style and 1 thirsties hemp insert. at night time, I either use a bulky workhorse style diaper, or I use one medium prefold, pad fold, a small hemp booster, and 2 thirsties hemp inserts. here he is pictured, wearing a bulky workhorse diaper at bedtime.
my son is 15 months old and weighs 30 lbs. he is a big boy, haha. most of his chunk goes directly to his stomach, and this cover fits well. at Naptime, we used an XL prefold (large doesnt hold up to his floods even though we do sit him on potty prior to nap) and at nighttime, we use a very bulky layered fitted workhorse. my 3 yr old has the size 3, very big thirsties covers and those are great too! I wish there were more patterns and prints for the size large covers though. that is my only gripe. other than that, it's only vanity and doesnt affect the quality or effectiveness of the product! highly recommend!
Our little girl (36lbs, 32 months old) was outgrowing all of our one-size covers, and if she's anything like her sisters she'll need night diapers for at least another year, maybe two. So we bought two size large covers. They work well over size large Cloth-Eez prefolds, and I often use them over the X-large Cloth-Eez prefolds with a large cotton insert for night diapers. When you just need a diaper that fits correctly (especially on the big or the small end of the spectrum), sized covers make sense. The elastic on the front minimizes the clothes tucking inside of the front of the diaper, and I really like the lack of rise snaps (they tend to wrap around the diaper and press into baby's thighs).
Most of our covers are Size 2, so I was curious about this Size "Large." It was a really nice upgrade in size - just a bit more room to accommodate the growing toddler and her occasional need for two flat diapers. Same great Thirsties quality I've grown to love. Note - there is no adjustment for rise, but that is working fine for us.
