About a month ago I purchased my first diapers online, Abena x-plus size small. I wear size 30/30 levi's jeans, so I thought I would be above the middle of the stated measurements (24-31 inch waist/hips.) Well, I forgot that I am pretty far underweight. So the leg tabs end up going a tiny bit too far, which means they get too close to the absorbent part. If I stick them to it, it eventually tears the fluffy inside of the diaper which leads to clumping. I'm guessing this means the diapers are too large for me.
Has anyone else experienced this with diapers that were too big? Any suggestions on what to do? The best thing I've figured out is to try to keep the leg tabs on the inside of the leg-holes.
I'm also wondering if maybe molicares would be just a tad smaller than abenas? Since the low end of the small range is lower at just 20". Which is actually the same as the low end of the abena extra smalls, which are my other option for next time.
Any insight anyone could provide would be greatly appreciated.
