I got a pre-loved one the other day (WN) and it is great, hasn't wicked at all and was on for ages due to nap time. It was on over a JR which was fab as well, this is our first venture into fitted and have been very impressed with our pre-loved JR and HL - yay. x

I use cotton outer wraps all day, and sometimes overnight if the fleece outers are in the wash and have not ever had a wick, and considering I have cloth bummed three babs this is great :D I use my own wraps and they were designed to have anything on the outside.

If you do find a wick, make sure all the outer fabric is turned out to the outer so none is touching the nappy! If the cotton cannot get wet it cannot wick.

I used a cotton wrap overnight last night with no problems. As long as you get the fit right they should work.
The first time i ever used one it wicked but i didn't have it tight enough it was too big at the time.
