Has Anyone Tried a Disana Knitted Overpant?

Post by aussiemum » Mon Jul 02, 2007 9:49 am

Hi everyone, these are often seen on trademe and they look great. Has anyone tried one? Oh, should mention I'm referring to the pull on one not the wrap.

I havent used one, but ive played with one =P~ Its (from memory) two layers of wool in the body and similar shape to the bum sweater. So would be bulkier then the bumsweater.

I haven't seen a bumsweater, but have used the Disana woollen overpants and they are not bulky at all. The organic wool is lovely and soft and feels more like cotton than wool - not scratchy at all which I like.

They look so cute on and DH likes them too.

I haven't used one but I have been looking :-) and I've only ever heard good things about them.

Just loves for overnight. Iput it over my pocket nappies, so stops any leaks.
Yeah!!!!
Only thing I didn't like was that there was no elastic around the waist and legs and I had to keep on washing it so it didn't fall off as the wool looked really stretched. Now I have sewn in an elastic thread and it is no problem anymore.
And they look so cute. Have a pic of my boy in one somewhere. Will post it later on.

This thread reminded me of how much I really needed one of these covers, so I bought one (finally) and it arrived today :-) I bought the large which is big enough to go over Eve's night nappy (a terry square) and I'll provide an update of how it performed over night, in the morning.

Well I have to say that so far I'm quite impressed, the fit looks nice and comfy and the size large on a large toddler with chuncky thighs still has room for more stuffing if need be. The instructions says they'll need lanolising fairly soon after first being bought but a jar of lanolin goes a long way so that's fair enough. Price wise they are considered a budget option £9/$24 a pair. I think they offer great value for money though and I'll be getting some smalls and mediums for the new baby.
