large DnF??

Postby megansmummy » Tue Nov 17, 2009 9:26 am

I have 2 (well the second is due to arrive any day...) medium DnF's but im finding them REALLY low in the rise on kieren the last few times he has worn one?? Im assuming the large is better in the rise but im thinking its going to be too big everywhere else?? :( he constantly has a builders bum :(

Looking at the sizing guide a large knit outer would probably be too big, a large woven outer might be ok though??

Im having the same problem, the mediums seem so low on him :(

Do you add any boosting to yours at all, mine seem wet through after an hour, with a GK booster i can stretch it slightly, hes not a heavy wetter at all and had heard good things about these :-?

Katie is quite a heavy wetter and we don't need to add any boosting to ours. For the first few washes I did need to change slightly more often but they are our best performing nappies atm. I fold the soakers so that there are a lot of layers in her wet zone and we usually get just under 3 hours out of them compared to 2 - 2.5 out of all our other (boosted) fitteds.

Nathan's quite a heavy wetter and we get 3hours easily and 5 boosted on long car journeys.

They're SS.
There does seem to be a lot of overlap in measurements from M to L, so it might be worth trying for the bigger rise unless he's at the very small end of the M for thighs or waist (which is where I think leaks would happen?)
