Different Types of Plus Size Babywearing Options

The carriers we will look at today fall into four categories: Stretchy wraps, woven wraps, ring slings, and soft structured carriers:

Stretchy Wraps

A Stretchy Wrap is usually long stretchy fabric crossed over the wearer’s torso and then wrapped and tied around the waist.

These carriers can be pre-tied, then settle baby into the seat created by the crossing fabric for a secure, snuggly day at home or out and about.

Woven Wraps

Woven Wraps are a long rectangular length of woven fabric.

These wraps come in various lengths and have little to no stretch. They can be tied to custom-fit newborns to toddlers with support and style.

Ring Slings

Ring Slings are a length of fabric with two rings secured at one end. The ring sling is a simple, compact, versatile carrier.

Creating one loop worn cross-body, the tail of the fabric adjusts with tension in the rings for a custom-molded and supportive weight distribution at all ages and stages.

Soft Structured Carriers

Soft Structured Carriers resemble a backpack, with webbing for fit adjustments, padded structured straps, an adjustable, clip-fastened waistband, and a panel seat. In addition, many brands have additional features like hoods, pockets, accessories, and more.

Most of these carriers operate and fit similarly and are incredibly popular.

Plus Size Babywearing Testimonials

“Baby K'tan is awesome! I'm size 24, fits great! Daughter loves it, very comfortable, not back-breaking like some.”

“It doesn't cut in or squeeze me where I don't want it to. The cotton is a wonderful breathable material for longer wears, and Daddy can use the same size. Plus – it's only an XL.”

“I really love my Baby K'tan. It's soft and flexible, very easy to put on and get the baby into, and easy to adjust with a baby in it if you need to. I am carrying my one-month-old regularly, but I have put my 7-month-old nephew in it and my 4-year-old daughter in. It's worked for everyone!”

2. Boba Wrap

“I had such a hard time finding a comfortable option for me! At the time, I was 350+, and nothing seemed to work with my height and weight besides Boba Wrap! I love the stretchy fabric, but it also is o secure that I felt comfortable with my newborn/baby in it!”

“I loved our Boba, mostly because it was the only one I could find that both fit AND was slightly stretchy. The t-shirt-like material is what I like best, and it fits Dad, too. I'm 5'9″ and 450lbs, daddy is 6'4″ and 450lbs, and it was plenty big and comfy.”

“I had never used a ring sling before, it comes with decent instructions, but I found YouTube videos to be more helpful.

“We love using our Carry On! I'm plus size (2x), and it fits me great with extra room and my husband, who is a size Medium. “

Plus Size Information

Twingo carrier, designed for twins, is two carriers that can be worn separately or together. The waist of each carrier individually is 55 inches, and when clipped together, up to 110 inches.

Plus Size Babywearing Testimonials

“I wasn't sure about a couple of things when I ordered this: 1. I'm a big dude … 6'1″ 225. Was it going to fit me? After all, real men wear babies. Answer- A resounding yes, with room to grow. 2. Quality. Yeah, yeah, it separates into two carriers, so you don't have to buy additional carriers, saving money. But, we already own a few (probably a few to many) really good carriers. Answer- it's now the only carrier I use. Super study, soft where it needs to be, supportive for baby and me, good weight distribution, and babies seem cozy.”

“True love for this carrier!! I got my TwinGo when my twin boys were nine months old, about 16 lbs each. They are now 1yr and about 19lbs each. I wear my TwinGo almost daily, and I am wearing it right now with just one of my babes. I find tandem wearing SO comfortable. They will even take good long naps in it. I am a plus size mom, and it fits me amazingly. My husband is over 300 lbs, and he can wear it.”

11. Woven Wraps

Carrier Basics

Category: Woven Wrap
Child size range: 8 – 35 lbs.
Machine Washable: Yes

Plus Size Information

Woven wraps are amazing because they can be tied in many ways to custom-fit each caregiver and child duo, or even trio, if you’re tandem wrapping twins! These wraps are often hand-me-downs or family heirlooms, so we wanted to discuss how they fit.

Woven wraps come in various sizes, which correlate to the fabric's length, not the wearer's size. For example, the Hip Baby Woven Wrap is a size 6, at 4.7 meters, and will have many ways to tie.

Wrap sizing is less about matching the wrap size to your equivalent tee shirt or dress size and more about choosing the length that provides the feel and function you prefer. Shorter wraps are great for sling-style carries and on-the-go wrapping, and multiple supportive passes can be achieved with a longer wrap.

Woven Wrap Sizing Chart

Woven wraps, like stretchy wraps, are measured in meters. 1 meter is approximately 39 inches. Woven wraps are measured with a soft fabric tape, the sort used for sewing, fitting, and tailoring.

2:  2.7 meters
3:  3.2 meters
4:  3.7 meters
5:  4.2 meters
6:  4.7 meters
7:  5.2 meters
8:  5.7 meters
9:  6.2 meters
10: 6.7 meters

Plus Size Babywearing Testimonials

“Woven wraps come in all ranges of greatness. Lots of love for a great range of options in terms of weave and colors.”

“I don't leave home without my woven wrap.”

I was gifted a hand me down Ergobaby carrier by my sister and did not like it. It felt uncomfortable on, and watching videos online I was not confident in my ability to get a baby in it and adjust it. However, having tried my bestie’s Baby Bjorn, I scooped one up second hand and love how easy it is to get in and out of. Fits more comfortably around my 38J boobs (who knows how big they’ll get when milk comes in!) than the Ergobaby (which was tight and felt like babies face woukd just be mushed into them) and doesn’t have to be adjusted while baby is in it.

Disappointed to see Moby Wrap here. I have one and it only barely fits me and no other adult in my family. Definitely doesn't belong in a list of carriers for plus sizes!


Monday 2nd of May 2022

I sure understand not all carriers fit everyone - that's why we have so many options, and I hope you find something that's a better fit. Moby is listed because I surveyed plus size parents and it came up often as a favorite.

I’m a size 26/28 before baby, about 385 lbs. wondering if there is a baby carrier big enough for me? Registering on amazon.

Tula might be a great fit for you! Here's a plus size mom's story about babywearing and why she loves Tula. The benefit of purchasing on Amazon is their return policy if it doesn't fit -

I want to try baby wearing but I'm worried I will be to hot?


Monday 16th of March 2015

Kimberly it can get a little warm but not as sweaty as you'd imagine.


Saturday 7th of June 2014

I was so excited to buy an Ergo with the waist extender only to discover that they've stopped making them. Which for this plus sized mama (24) means I've gotta take my business elsewhere.
