Imse Vimse Swim Diaper Review

Diva Diapers is an online cloth diaper store with a nice selection of items for all of your cloth diapering needs. They were wonderful enough to send me an Imse Vimse swim diaper to review.

I have wanted to try an Imse Vimse swim diaper since last summer but just never got around to buying one. I had one swim diaper or I would just use a pocket diaper without the insert for swimming in his baby pool out in the yard. He has since outgrown his old swim diaper and I knew that it was time for a new one and I chose the Red Lizard print.

The diaper has one closed leg and the other has two snaps.  It took a few clumsy seconds to get on while standing up but it will be very easy to get on with K laying down or while standing with a less squirmy kid than K.

K is right around 26 pounds so I chose the extra large which fits 24-31 lbs. When I received it, it looked so tiny that I wondered if it would fit. Apparently I am so used to pocket diapers because not only does it fit, I probably could have gotten away with a large which fits 20-26lbs. I’m glad that I did end up choosing the larger one though because the elastics at the waist and legs are snug enough to hold in any potential accidents while still having room to grow. I am sure that it will still fit next summer which is great!

A reusable swim diaper isn’t made to be absorbent (and neither are the disposable ones!). They are made to hold in solid waste and liquid waste will pass through, so don’t put your little one in this and then drive to the beach!

It hasn’t been warm all that much yet here in the Northeast so we had to try out our new swim diaper in the tub

The waist and leg elastics stay snug even when wet

And so do the elastics in the crotch area, even with this diaper being on the big side. I feel confident that this swim diaper will hold in any messes so that may happen and we can avoid an unpleasant swimming accident.

One note, it holds more water than you would think it does. When I took him out of the tub and took the diaper off quite a bit of water came out of it and I ended up with a big wet area on my bath mat, so let your baby drip dry for a minute or two before taking it off.

Buy It

You can buy your own Imse Vimse swim diaper from Nicki’s Diapers

I like that it’s just like little underwear; no snaps or potentially-scratchy hook-and-look to deal with. Keeps it simple!

I like the Turquoise Sea Animal print. You say the elastic is tight to keep things in. I hope that is true even for a skinny little guy like I have!
