I always used sposies at night there is no way cloth would have held it
As for the smell, I used to do a cold rinse then wash at 60 with half measure of detergent.

I used them for Evie when all else failed, stuffed with a cotton layer, then a PD Bamboo insert and a couple of EH Hemp inserts. Being fleece lined they kept her bum perfectly dry, the frilled leg openings meant they were the only fitted that didnt have leg gaping or leave red marks on her thighs, and they have a big pocket so you can stuff with whatever you need.
Wool wise, have you anything crocheted? Because of the way crochet is made, it uses about 1/3rd again the amount of wool of knitted items so can be excellent for heavy wetters. Another option, especially for overnight, is to double layer the wool so a soaker and then a pair of longies over the top, or you can get woolies made up with a double layer of wool in the wet patch.
Clothes wise - I found leggings and tunics good, and there are loads of them in the shops atm, but if you are using fitteds there are loads of girly options for wool and fleece to be used as clothing.
