The new "Better Fit" prefolds from OsoCozy® are sized to fit in the diaper cover without folding length-wise in the diaper cover as required for standard prefolds. This less bulky and easier to use prefold style is growing in popularity. It is specifically made and sized to be used inside a diaper cover using a trifold type fold as per the pictures below.
The trifold type fold does not require Snappi® fasteners or diaper pins.
All OsoCozy® prefolds including these new "Better Fit" prefolds are Diaper Service Quality (DSQ). They are sewn of 100% Indian cotton gauze weaved material. This material quilts up nice and thick with the first wash and these diapers are soft, very absorbent and lint free.

Traditional versus Better Fit
Traditional Fit prefold cloth diapers can be secured to baby with diaper pins, Snappi Fasteners or placed in diaper cover and trifolded (sides folded over the middle) with the extra length then folded over in front or back for additional absorbency. See the first 2 pictures below. Many additional ways of folding these diapers can be found such as the angel wing fold, the bikini twist and others. These versitile work horses have been the standard since prefold diapers replace flat diapers in the late 1960's.
Better Fit prefold diapers are sized to fit diaper covers when a simple trifold is used. See first picture below. They can also be used with pins or a Snappi®, and result in a less bulky and more comfortable fit. They are 2.5 inches shorter in the infant size and 5-6 inches shorter than the regular or premium sized traditional prefolds. The premium sized Better Fit can also be used as a medium size between the traditional infant and regular/premium sizes.
