Your choice of wrap will depend on the type of carries you intend/prefer to use and your size and height.
A size 6 wrap is a good choice for a general use sling, which is suitable for most sizes and carries. If you have very long tails in certain carries just wrap them around your body again and tie off.
If you are buying a wrap to share and are unsure which size to buy, it is generally recommended to buy with the main user in mind. If you are carrying a toddler as opposed to a baby, you may need a slightly longer sling.
The list below shows the approx. length of each size of wrap.
- Size size 2 - 2.7m
- Size size 3 - 3.2m
- Size size 4 - 3.7m
- Size size 5 - 4.2m
