Wraparound Carrier Sizes
One of the very best thing about woven baby wraps is that one carrier can serve many functions and fit many people. The size of the woven wrap is much less of a concern than with other carriers that must fit the wearer precisely.
While a person of any size could pick up any size wrap and learn a good, safe, and comfortable way to wear their baby with it, some people prefer different sizes for different purposes.
choosing the size for you, consider the person who will be using the
wrap the most. A different size person will be able to use
whichever wrap you choose, but may have to learn a different carry.
A MEDIUM WRAP is a good choice for most people. Medium is usually around 4.6 meters long, which is around 5 yards or 15 feet long. This size will allow you to do most of the popular wrap carries for people up to about 6 ft and 180 lbs. Someone taller or larger may not be able to do the wrap cross carries, but will still be able to do many carries on the front, hip, and back, such as short cross carry, kangaroo carry, hip cross carry, and rucksack back carry.Choose a LARGE WRAP (about 5.2 meters) for any of the following reasons:
Choose an EXTRA SMALL WRAP (about 3.6 meters) if you want to do short carries only, such as the hip cross carry, abbreviated front wrap cross carry, kangaroo carry, or rucksack carry.
Some people prefer to use only these short carries in the hottest months, as there is less fabric around yourself and your baby. Some people also prefer these carries with a toddler or preschooler who wants up and down frequently, as these carries may be quicker to put on and take off, and the smaller wrap is handier to carry or fit in a bag when not in use.
Choose a REBOZO LENGTH WRAP (about 2.7 meters) if you only want to use one-shoulder rebozo carries, such as the hip or cradle carry, or for a two shouldered Reinforced Rear Rebozo Rucksack. This is another great choice for a highly portable wrap, and a cooler wrapping choice in hot weather.
*Colimacon et Cie wraps have a different sizing model. Instead of being available in S, M, and L, they are available in half meter increments from 2.5 meters to 6 meters. If you want a size Small, choose 4.0 meters, which is 10 - 20 cm shorter than most Small wraps. If you want a size Medium, choose 4.5 meters, which is 10 - 20 cm shorter than most Medium wraps. If you want large, choose 5.0 meters which is 10-20 cm shorter than most Large wraps. If you are right on the border between two sizes, size up to the next size with a C&C wrap. The 5.5 meter and 6.0 meter sizes are great options for fluffier mamas that are not available in every wrap brand.
