The Imse Vimse Soft Cover is a polyester knit laminated with PUL. This cloth diaper cover from Imse Vimse keeps baby dry, but is breathable and still allows air circulation. It is extremely soft, pliable, and adjustable. The soft velcro makes for easy cloth diaper changes and eliminates the use of pins. The front velcro panel is now sewn down.

I loved these diaper covers the first few times I used them, but after using for only two weeks they now leak and I have to wash them after each use. I think most of the wetness seeps in through the stitching, as the moisture (sometimes soaking most of the cover) is always around the top and leg openings. But with a really wet diaper, the whole cover is damp as well, so it seems that the lining overall is not very effective. Also, the velcro on the laundry tabs also constantly sticks to and wrecks the fabric on other parts of the diaper cover and other clothes, so these covers have unfortunately become a waste of money for me. So disappointed!
These are my favorite covers. Not having laundry tabs is annoying, but I just close the diaper like I would on the baby but inside out for washing. I like the fit of these better than bummis. I also like the extra elastic in the leg- we have never had a leak with these.
Velcro sticks to everything in the drier. Additionally, they are not nearly as waterproof as other PUL covers. They cannot be worn under clothes or else they wick moisture out. Also, they become less waterproof over time. The only good thing I will say is that the preemie size is so tiny that it actually fits newborns well.
I agree with the other reviews on the laundry tabs issue... it is a SO annoying that I would never buy this cover again. While my daughter wears it, it works great, but the velcor sticks to everything in the wash and then is full of fuzz, which I have to pick out before using again.
I've been using the newborn size since my son was born (8 lbs 8 oz and 21 1/2 inches long). They work great. No complaints. Laundry tabs would be nice, but I just attach them like putting it on baby, and it works fine. I love how soft and flexible the cover is. It covers a prefold great.
