Woven wrap sizing (for woven wraps like our Breeze wraps) can be a bit confusing – not only do you need to factor in your size and shape, but you need to decide how much versatility you want from your wrap.
Many like a longer size even if they fall into a smaller size on the chart. A wrap cannot really be too long for you, only too long for your preference. If you are sharing between caregivers, choose the size that will fit the larger caregiver.
Some people like to order a few different sizes, using them for different purposes. Some people prefer a shorter wrap, and they don’t mind having fewer tying options. Others like a one-size-does-all carrier, ordering the wrap that will offer them the most options and versatility.
The Wrapsody Breeze size chart applies to woven wraps and will give you an idea of what sizing will meet your needs. This size will allow you to do the wrap cross carry with your infant or toddler, if you tie the wrap behind your back. Please note that beginning wrappers will usually have less left in the tail, and as you learn to wrap, the tails will probably get a bit longer.
Many like a longer size even if they fall into a smaller size on the chart. A wrap cannot really be too long for you, only too long for your preference. If you are sharing between caregivers, choose the size that will fit the larger caregiver. If you feel as though you are between sizes, it is probably best to order the larger size.
If you would like a shorter wrap, the following information will help you decide what size to get, in order to get the most use from your carrying cloth.
Q: “I don’t want to do the wrap cross carry, but I would like to do the basic X (simple cross carry). Which size should I get?”
A: Your size as above still might be best, but you can go ½ yard down as well.
Q: “I’d like to do the koala carries (rucksack variations), the hip cross carry, and maybe the short cross carry, but I don’t care much for the other cross carrying positions.”
A: You can go up to a yard smaller than your size above.
Q: “I don’t want a lot of fabric, and don’t mind using just a rucksack knotted under my baby’s bottom or rebozo-style carries.”
A: If you are at the bottom of your size range, you may be able to get away with going down 2 full yards, or 1.5 yards if you are at the top of your sizing range. You might also be interested in purchasing a traditional Mexican rebozo.
Hybrid wraps, in keeping with industry standards, are one size fits all. One size fits all is approximately 6 yards long, with well-tapered ends. Due to the many hands that measure the wraps prior to the final cutting and the nature of the fabric, there may be slight variation in the length.
Wrap DuO (formerly Wrapsody Water Wraps)
Wrapsody’s WrapDuO (water wrap) comes in two sizes: regular and long. Most families will need the size regular, but some may prefer the longer length. If you are in doubt as to which size is best for you, please choose the larger size.
