    They are. I have a couple of pairs that I really like. Be careful when you sit down ;) I was throwing at the pottery wheel one day with my wrap pants on. I looked down and I had leg showing up to my undies.

    They look funky, I think! (Although I've never worn any)

    I love them! I have a pair, and they are so comfy, especially when it's hot, but you don't like wearing short or so

    they are awesome. they kind of remind me of a cloth diaper... not in a bad way though. I really like them a lot!

    rofl!

    but there's no velcro or snaps or snappie! and no layers of pul or hemp or fleece. i can see the dipe shape at the front where the ties are though. LOL!

    i used to spend a lot of time changing dipes too. :p (all custom designed and made by moi!). now the little one is pretty much out of them.

    mostly fitted pocket dipes, with microfleece inners and flannel outers. stuffers either made out of old towels (yup! worked very well and still pretty trim) or i used fat quarters of flannel to stuff when i wanted something extra trim. and then wool butt sweaters as covers. at nihgt we just doubled up on stuffers and never had problems with leaks. we were too broke to order in designer fabrics like malden mills fleece, so we just ended up using both recycled fabrics and discount bin fabrics.

    Hahaha...oh man, you remind me of myself. I got a pair of really nice black wrap pants a couple of months ago. In the store, I picked them up, but I had no idea how to do them. So the woman selling them had to show me on herself how to do it. Then she gave them to me so I could go into the changing room and try it. I went...and stayed in there for about 10 minutes going "I...don't...UNDERSTAND!!!" hahaha. I had the saleslady and my mom outside going "What's taking so long? You ok in there?" Finally I gave up and came outside. The lady had to show me AGAIN. She finally took me, and told me to try putting them on out in the store over my jeans...and I finally did it. I was cracking up so much. The owners of this small little hippie store probably thought I was the slowest thing...or that I was completely high (but I wasn't!)...haha.
