Want the perfect fitting sling? Just follow these easy instructions to get your shoulder to hip measurement:
1 - Place a soft measuring tape at the outside edge of your shoulder in the middle (where your shirt seam is). Do I really have to measure myself with a measuring tape? Yep!
2 - Then loosely drape the tape measure across your body down to the top of your opposite hip bone near your side.
3 - Give it some slack so that the tape measure is loose across your body and not pulled tight.
4 - See where your measurement is on our sizing chart. Your size should be similar to your fitted t-shirt size, depending on your torso length.
ARE YOU PREGNANT AND SHOWING? Then follow these instructions to get your accurate measurement:
1 - Have someone else place a soft measuring tape at the outside edge of your shoulder in the middle (where your shirt seam is). It will not be accurate if you try to do the measurement yourself.
2 - Have them pull the tape measure tight and come down across your back and around to your opposite hip bone. Make sure they come to the top of your opposite hip bone in the back but close to the side of your body as shown. The top of your hip bone is basically where you'd place your hand if you were sassin' your mama. The side to measure to is where the outside seam of your pant leg is.
3 - Then look to see where you fall on the sizing chart above. This size of sling you order should be similar to your fitted t-shirt size when not pregnant.
HELPFUL HINTS FOR SIZING:
Most women wear the same size sling as they do a fitted t-shirt. It’s not an exact way to pick a size but it’s a great place to start.
Questions? E-mail us and we can help size you. A photo and additional body type information such as height and weight are very helpful.
Did I order the wrong size?
If you think you may have ordered the wrong size - here are some helpful guidelines to go by. And if you did order the wrong size, don't worry - the first exchange is on us!
With your baby in the sling, the bottom of the sling should hit your body near your hip bone. For best fit, it should be at or just above your hip bone.
TOO TIGHT: If the sling is several inches above your hip bone and feels very tight, then you need to exchange it for the next size larger.
TOO LOOSE: If the sling is several inches below your hip bone and feels too loose then you need to exchange it for the next size smaller. Keep in mind, however, that you can shrink the sling by 1" by washing it with like colors on cold and then drying it on medium high heat in the dryer. If the sling feels only slightly too big, then wash it and dry it and try again.
