Nope, not any more. Bella more often than not wears longies or crops. She's not currently an overly girly girl. We don't currently own any skirts for her and if she wears her dresses, they are over longies or crops.
It does give a bigger bum with a soaker, but not that much bigger than a fitted with a pul wrap. Did you say you bought some of those sweater pants on etsy that look like leggings? I was thinking those would be good under dresses, too, but I have so many pairs of tights I love.
