• 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.
• 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.
• 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.
• 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 24 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.
• 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 you don't have enough tail
to loosen your carry down for nursing, for example.
