No-frills Wee notions pocket

Postby Velvetsteph » Fri Oct 19, 2007 6:14 pm

Reliability: 10/10
Absorbancy: N/A (didn't use their own insert)
Cuteness: 10/10
Drying Speed: not tested that yet! Would presume 10/10
Slimness: 9/10 (bit ballooney at the front)
Value for money: 8/10 (could be quite pricey esp if you wanted an exclusives pattern)

Overall Comment: Brilliant!


Well I have to say I am VERY impressed with this... I was a bit wary given the poor reviews their frilly leg pockets have had, but these are ace!

It was on for 4.5 hours with a blueberry mf/hemp onesize insert in and although the insert was SOAKED we didn't have any leaks!

Fit-wise it is generous... The WN wraps Isabelle is on the loosest setting in a large, but the large pocket she's on the tightest setting.

Slight down-side is that it's quite generous (you could really stuff it with loads) so using slim stuffing meant it slipped down slightly at the front - it doesn't grip well - but that's possibly also because it's a side-snap design.

I will definately be buying more...

1st review I've seen for these! Do you think I should opt for mediums for the girls then?? (was gonna get large as they fit in both med and large in the wraps although the med are a much better fit obviously!)

Jan - you'd have to check with the guys themselves for the measurements to be sure but I think you would be better going for a medium... if they fit in medium wraps then the large pockets will fall off them!! (unless you SUPER pad them with HEUOWGE terries or something!)

the cow one is very good too!!!!! :D
i put it on straight out the package with a blueberry hemp insert and 5 hours later (yes i know i'm naughty, but i like to do a thourough test!!) insert Sodden and still no leaks! yay!
i bought a large, and he is on the smallest setting, and i thought it was a bit big esp round the wasit, but no leaks! yay!!!

I am a WAHM making pocket nappies and I bought a No Frills pocket a couple of weeks ago just to check out the "competition". Much to my disgust, I love it! I thought the price was quite reasonable compared to some.

Reliability: 10/10
Absorbancy: 9/10 - fab insert but a bit bulky
Cuteness: 10/10
Drying Speed: 10/10 - although insert takes a while
Slimness: 8/10 (bit ballooney at the front)
Value for money: 7/10

Overall Comment: Lovely lovely

I really like our Wee Notions pocket. Never fancied one of the old style but these are really really good and I love the crushed velvet type fabric we got.
I bought their bamboo insert before they brought out their new combo ones and I find it very absorbent but a bit bulky really so am keen to try one of their new ones.

Charliemum, even though you ordered before the new ones came out I think I may have sent you one of the new ones :wink: A fold in lengthways 3 layered one, but we do a slimmer 2 layered one too.

Fab reviews girls thank you :D
