This thread goes along with the Changing Times Diaper Company review. I have a medium pre-fold that measures 26" x 34" fully shrunk. I have read numerous sites online detailing how to fold pre-fold diapers, but I'm at the point that I think I just need some experienced advice.
This fold (Basic Angel Wing) works best so far, because it gives me maximum width in the back to wrap around and pin to the front and because it isn't so wide in the middle that it covers the top of my legs.
I can pin it up using 4 pins so that its fairly snug when dry, though the rear sags a little bit. When it's wet... that's another matter. The thing sags a good 4-5" down from my (no way to be polite about this) crotch.
Do I just need more practice pinning, or should I get a smaller size? CTDC lacks a size chart for their cloth diapers and only lists the dimensions of the pre-fold. Consequently, I had a hard time figuring out what size to get. The next size down is 22" x 31" fully shrunk. I have a 32" waist (measured over my belly button, which is the height I pin the diapers at). The back 'wings' of the diaper overlap the front panel by 2" on each side when pinned, so I'm concerned that the smaller size will be too small in the waist. Can any experienced pre-fold users lend some advice? Is there a way to get a less droopy fit, or is that just how cloth diapers are?
