I think you'll be ok! :-) I have gen-y universal and they don't wick for me unlike some other cotton outer ones. Its the leg gussets that make the difference for the inserts I use which are quite fat. Also make sure the clothing directly on top of the nappy isn't too tight and in contact where the thigh meets the nappy-you can use vest extenders etc for this problem if it applies to you. Good luck ;-) x

Oooooh are the universal gusseted? Might get one then! I had wondered if the wicking we got was too tight vests (even with extenders..... Needed to go shopping!) and have switched to non poppered and don't remember if it's wicked since then? Never did it all the time, anyway, thankfully!

The GEN Y arrived today, lovely looking wrap, have been out all day so not had a chance to test it out. It def has gussets and seems thicker than other wraps with cotton outers, am feeling positive so far! Will test it out tomorrow.

I really like my Gen Y universal wraps :thumbsup: I love the soft feeling of the cotton outer, and the gussets are great! We have never had a leak with them, but I have found a little bit of wicking - only when the nappy underneath is soaking. I've found that they are a good fit over chunky terries nappies too!

We had success! The GEN Y is lovely! No leaks, no wicking and a great fit. Does give quite a big bum though but I guess that's terries for you! I like the big bottom look and I coordinated the wrap with a bright bots! :D :thumbsup:

I found weehuggers wicked when used as a wrap but worked really well with a insert, such as flips, thirsties hemp etc
