Ring slings are measured from the fabric's gathered edge on the rings along the short rail.
They are measured postwash in inches as follows: Medium = 75 inches // Large = 80 inches // Extra Large = 85 inches // XXL = 90 inches.
A good rule to follow 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, and then subtract that number from the length of the sling to see how long your adjusting tail will hang down with each of the sizes.
Please, Bijou's discount for babywearing educators cannot be applied to the Skya line. Please do contact us for the educator discount code on our other carriers.
If you do not know where to start, please read this page and also see our infographic for determining your "base" size HERE.
Woven wraps are long parallelograms of fabric. The size indicates the length along one rail (a long edge) as follows (all plus or minus 0.1 meters):
Size 2 = 2.7 meters // Size 3 = 3.2 meters // Size 4 = 3.7 meters // Size 5 = 4.2 meters // Size 6 = 4.7 meters // Size 7 = 5.2 meters // Size 8 = 5.7 meters // Size 9 = 6.2 meters // Size 10 = 6.7 meters
Which size should you buy?
Many people with a baby can do a front wrap cross carry (see the FWCC tutorial here) in a size 6 woven wrap, which means that person's "base" size is a 6. Larger frames, those with larger ribcages or busts, or those with big toddlers might be base 7 or 8 or 9, and smaller frames might be base 5 or occasionally base 4. However, any person can use any size woven wrap.
With a woven wrap, you can wear your baby or toddler in a variety of ways: on your front, hip, and/or back (instruction manual provided) -- and no need to "size up" as baby grows if you have a Bijou! We are also proud that any person can wear any size woven wrap Bijou makes (3 through 9, generally). The size simply determines the carries done by that person with that wrap.
There are hundreds of ways to babywear with a woven. A short wrap is nice for on-the-go. Long wraps are great for reinforcing passes that add support. Medium wraps are versatile; some love them for nursing in a front wrap cross carry tied under bum (see the FWCC TUB How To).
During its first bath your wrap will shrink slightly, which is normal. We cut the fabric so that it will shrink to the size that you ordered (within tolerances).
ENJOY! See the included instructional booklet for carries specific to your purchase, find the same instructions at the how-to link above in the menu, or watch video tutorials HERE!
