I have a question for ya....how do you find the sizing to be on these...pretty true to size?! I am in between the sizes, and not sure which to order...not sure if it stretches a lot. I know the pouches you need to fit well. Thanks so much! :)

Tanya suggested a medium for me, I'm 5'8, and about 125 pounds, and it's great, although I do keep them on the tightest settings....

I think her charts are accurate, but if you've got any questions, email her, because I think she's just about psychic on what's the appropriate size for her slings.....;-)

If you're between two sizes, a good bet is to get an extra row or two of snaps added to the larger size. I did that and it has really worked out well. Plus, that would enable your dh to use it if he is bigger than you and so inclined!

If you inbetween but carry your weight more above your waist - larger bra size, I would go with the larger size w/the extra row of snaps. However if you carry your weight below the waist, stick with the smaller size. Tayna actually recommends this somewhere on her site - can't find it right now.

I have to say, some of it could depend on you too and how you like the sling to fit. I bought a Large originally and I am in the middle of the range of measurements/weight for that size, but it was just too big for me. I found that it would stretch and DD would "sink" as I was wearing it and then my back would start to hurt. I sent it to Tanya and she added an extra row of snaps for me and now it fits perfectly! Now I know what I all the hype was about this sling because it is just fantastic when it fits right! This new tightest row (4th row of snaps on a Large) is pretty much the equivalent of the middle set of snaps (if you have 3 rows) on a Medium I think. I would say that I carry my weight pretty evenly/maybe a little extra around the middle and I'm a D cup, so sometimes the rules don't totally apply!

Edited to add: I'm 5'6" and 185 lbs right now (but the Large was "too big" for me even when I was almost 10 lbs heavier) just to give you an idea...
