Dearest Diapers is an online cloth diaper retailer out of Sacramento, California with a wonderful selection of cloth diapers and accessories. They were kind enough to send me a Swaddlebees Capri diaper cover to review. I am a Swaddlebees & Blueberry fangirl and I was ecstatic to finally try the Capri since I am such a big fan of the Blueberry Coverall and the Weehugger.
When I opened my package I was thrilled with the cover that I received. If I were to have chosen my own color/print it would have been the Owl print! Look how cute and fun it is:
It has great leg gussets, which is a feature that I love in a cover
Gussets in action:
I use fitteds and covers exclusively for nighttime diapering and this cover fits very well even over my Sustainablebabyish snapless fitteds and let me tell you, not all of my covers fit well over those! It also worked wonderfully when I had to use flushable inserts for a few days while we treated a rash that was starting to look yeasty. It was a little baggy in the butt with the flushable insert but it still worked wonderfully. Just like the Weehugger, it has flaps in the front and back to hold any type of insert or prefold you wish to use.
It has a great fit in the rear (this is over a bulky Sbish snapless)
And a nice, flat front. Over the Sbish snapless the rise snaps are all undone (they can be snapped down to the medium rise but the top panel fit better when undone) but over a typically shaped fitted like a Goodmama he is on the medium rise setting. He is 18½ months and almost 26 pounds.
As it turns out, the Capri is the best of both the Coverall and the Weehugger and that’s saying a lot with how much I adore both of those covers! In case you’re wondering how this cover compares to either or both of the others like I was, I have taken some comparison photos:
Capri and Weehugger on the left, Coverall and Capri on the right
These are all set on the medium setting and as you can see, the Capri is in the middle of these two in terms of sizing
I would say that the Capri is cut more like a Weehugger but slightly larger while the fabric is closer to the Coverall but slightly thicker. Since it isn’t a cotton knit like the Weehugger it dries much faster. It fits over the bulkiest of my fitteds without a problem at all where the Weehugger would only fit over smaller or more typical fitteds. The Coverall is more roomy but sometimes too roomy so I think the Capri is the perfect balance between the three.
- Front and back flaps
- Leg gussets
- High quality fabric and amazing colors and prints
- Flat front for a nice fit
- Fits over the bulkiest of fitteds and the trimmest of disposable/biodegradable inserts
- Two rows of snaps
Overall, Swaddlebees does it again. I am in love with this cover. It has the best of my two favorite covers to make one, I daresay perfect cover! I have absolutely nothing negative to say about the Swaddlebees Capri.
Dearest Diapers offers a great selection and free shipping! So shop away!
