Ring slings are measured from the gathered edge on the rings along the short rail. Our ring slings are sewn with a gathered shoulder, which provides comfort and good spreadability. They can be worn on either shoulder.
They are measured in inches as follows: Extra Small = 65 inches ~ Small = 70 inches ~ Medium = 75 inches ~ Large = 80 inches ~ Extra Large = 85 inches.
The rule of thumb is to buy your t-shirt size, though if you are large busted or have a large ribcage or carry a large toddler, you might choose to size up. However, larger people can wear smaller ring slings and vice versa. The only difference will be the amount of "tail" hanging down from the rings. Remember, they are only five inches different from each other, so don't be wary of getting a shorter or longer size than you might think! You can measure a loop from one shoulder to opposite hip and back with a soft tape to see how long your adjusting tail will be with each of the sizes.
Starting this Spring we will be offering Pre-Orders of limited quantities for our ring slings, with the option to purchase the specific size you would like.
When selecting what size wrap to buy, start with figuring out what your "base" size is. Many people find they can do the carry that determines their base-size, which is the Front Wrap Cross-Carry (FWCC), with a size 6 woven wrap, and some can do it with a size 5 or a size 7. Shorter sizes, typically sizes 2 - 4 are best for shorty carries, which are great for quick ups and when you are on the go. More elaborate and carries with fancy finishes, are best done with longer sizes, typically sizes 6 - 9. At this time we only carry the sizes listed, we hope to expand on those sizes soon.
We recommend contacting your local babywearing group, finding an online community, or perusing YouTube for different carries to practice. Please read our Safety page and practice, practice, practice.
Our wraps shrink at least 10% with a wash and dry, we cut the fabric to allow for shrinkage, but length may vary by blend and pattern.
All measurements are taken in meters. Wrap widths range from .63m to .70m.
