Carrying Guide for Each Size of Woven Wrap
Woven wrap sizing depends mainly on two things:

Cheng made this gorgeous video when her little one was still being worn. She demonstrates 7 wrap styles for a 3.1 meter woven wrap:
A 3.7 meter woven wrap is often called a size 4. This is my favorite length for back carries. Short enough to do a lot of the carries from the shorter sizes, long enough to manage some of the longer carries in shortened versions.
Full length wraps (scroll down to learn more about which length is your full length wrap):
A 4.1 or 4.2 meter woven wrap is often called a size 5. This is the SMALL full length wrap, the best size for petite mamas who are wanting to do the full range of wrapping. You don't have to be petite to enjoy this size. If you find yourself preferring shorter carries that are still to long to use a shorty, this may be perfect for you. If your tails are too long when you use a 4.6 meter wrap to do your favorite carries, you will probably be happy with a 4.1 meter length.
A 4.6 or 4.7 meter woven is known as a size 6. This is the MEDIUM full length wrap (also called Standard) and is the most popular woven wrap size. It is the size that fits most moms for doing most of the popular wrap carries. If you want a wrap that allows a petite mom and a larger pop to both have several options, this may be the perfect compromise that will neither drag too long for the mom, nor come up too short for the dad to have some options.
A 5.1 or 5.2 meter woven is called a size 7 wrap. This is the LARGE full length wrap. Plus size moms and dads will use this size for all of their full length wrap carries. It can also be used by someone who normally uses a size 6 but wants more room for tandem babywearing, or doing extra long carries.
A 5.7 meter woven is often called a size 8 woven wrap. This size is for full length carries for those who wear larger than a size 22 dress size (US) and should work well, for example, for a parent or caregiver who is in the range of 5'10 and 300 lbs. For reference, most popular brands of stretchy wrap are one-size-fits-all, and that size is around 5.5 meters. Just about a size 8.
A 6.0 meter wrap is available in some of the wrap brands, and is a great option for parents who find a size 8 to be not quite enough.
You may need a larger wrap if:
A couple of carries that take a little more length than the others may require you to size up to the next wrap size:
