Most people start out with a wrap in their base size. Your "base size" means the size you need to be able to comfortably tie the standard carry "Front Wrap Cross Carry", also known as FWCC.
Tutorial: How to tie a FWCC
Your base size depends on which size clothes you use on your upper body.
XS or smaller: Size 5
Size S-L: Size 6
XL-XXL: Size 7
3XL+: Size 8
It's important that you have enough fabric to work with when wrapping, so you can comfortably tie a secure double knot. The difference between sizes is only 50 cm, so if you are torn between two sizes, I always recommend you pick the longer of the two.
You will notice that shorter wraps (Size 1-4) exist. These short wraps are used for alternative ways to tie, that use less fabric.
Woven wrap lengths:
Size 8: 570cm
Size 7: 520cm
Size 6: 470 cm
Size 5: 420cm
Size 4: 370 cm
Size 3: 320 cm
Size 2: 270cm
Size 1: 220cm
Ring slinges are only worn in a few ways, and don't vary in size to the extent that woven wraps do. People of most sizes will fit a standard length ring sling comfortably. Our ring slings with extra length might be the right choice for you if you use a size XL+, want to use the ring slings for back carries, want to use it on top of thick outerwear, or if you are tall and like long decorative tails on your sling.
Ring slings (short/long side, measured without rings):
RS: 180/200 cm
RS Extra Length: 210/230 cm
Kram slings: One size (190/220 cm)
ABOUT MEASURING SLINGS AND WRAPS
Fabric is a live material that contracts with wash, and stretches with use. Depending on how they are washed, and how they are used, they will contract and stretch more or less. The posted lengths are approximate and what you can expect after washing according to guidelines.
