Weenotions Northern Lights - old vs new - update end P2

Postby Velvetsteph » Mon Feb 08, 2010 10:08 pm

Okay here's a question...

I have a large 'old style' WNNL from when they were hemp inner covered with cotton velour (it's got a Ltd Edition cotton outer) and it's a fantastic fit on Grace and I'm so tempted to get more...

BUT I know Suzanne changed the shape of them a little plus also they're made from bamboo terry now and I don't like bamboo terry nappies :?

Has anyone got both and can do a photo comparison? Or advise?

Obviously I don't really need more nappies but I do NEED more of these as they're such a perfect fit!

I'm a big WN NL fan too lovely fit v absorbant, but i don't know about the old shape either although i do have a pre-loved smalls which are diff to the new small I have only difference is there is one less popper on waist and the rise is a little lower? I have a preloved medium so will check that one compared to my new mediums too?

a staple here too hun :wink:

although im not overly keen on bt either (hard water area :x ) the fact that you can get them outered and innered in alternatives is good enough for me!

I never had any 'new' old style (iygwim :oops: ) but bought one preloved and actually hated it :oops: it didnt fit as well , rise not great , and i didnt like the cotton velour inner :oops: i sold it on immediately and bought another preloved new style!

I see youve got one coming on loan soon so hope you like it :D

I had one of the newest style for Bella in large and because it was all BT rather than thinner hemp, it was actually quite bulky for the absorbancy :oops: Fit wasn't too bad, but not brilliant. But, when I tried a medium, the fit was much better.

No probs, i'll get that sorted any particular you'd like to try........i've got Dyed OBV outer and topped insert, OBV Dyed Outer, cotton print and cotton velour. The BV's are stretchier than the cotton!

Oooh I dunno - mine is a cotton print so I guess I should compare like with like but I'm always swayed by obv :giggle: you choose ;)

That's worth knowing - thanks :) How is she with the WNSS as Grace is in the large standard for those...

We haven't used pockets for quite a while, but when we last had them, the larges (this was before she changed the rise measurements around) were a bit on the big side, mainly in the rise though, and I think Grace needs a higher rise than Bella anyway form what you've said. Bella's long and skinny, but only seems to have a small bum (where did that come from? Certainly not me :giggle: )
