Since I’ve used prefolds and like to find ways to expand our stash economically, I was intrigued by their Flair reusable diaper. It’s a prefold with snaps! No pins. No snappis.

It works for day use. Rissa wets too much to be in a prefold for naps – let alone overnight. It seemed as absorbent as our other prefolds.
Washes well and dries fast. I prefer to put it in the dryer so it doesn’t get all stiff. Another option is to line dry most of the way and finish it in the dryer to fluff it up.
It’s not as easy to use as I thought it would be. at first I was excited about a prefold with snaps! What a brillant way to keep it on. There weren’t any instructions or tutorials on the use of the Flair. After laundering it, I was puzzled by how I was supposed to fold it. The V pattern for the snaps made me uncertain as well since they didn’t seem to be any for rise adjustment. While I am able to make this diaper work, I would not leave it with my husband!
It seemed a bit tight around her waist from my trifold but baggy through the crotch. Trying to keep the snaps lined up made it difficult to have the material snug around her thighs. She’s on the lower end of the size range (14-26 lbs for Medium). Operator error? Possibly! It’s a neat concept, but I think snaps work better with contours rather than prefolds. It’s still usable and it’s different. Not my favorite option.
Final thoughts: While the Flair is not my favorite, I would like to try one of the other diapers offered by RearZ. I like their mission and dedication to reducing waste too!
