The supportive nature of a hand-woven cotton baby wrap such as the Girasol means baby's position is maintained in the wrap and will not stretch out as you go about your day. A baby wrap hugs baby to the wearer, offering excellent support for both, that is not a strain to the neck, back or shoulders. Using only the highest quality materials, an Girasol wrap is as comfortable, durable and practical as a baby carrier can be.
Sizing of the Girasol Woven Wrap
The Girasol Standard wrap is 5 yards/4.6m which allows for the maximum versatility you will want from your wrap. Considered the "one-size-fits-all" we've found that a 4.6 meter wrap will allow you to do the greatest variety of carries, including nursing in a wrap, whether you are a size 4 or a size 16 (up to 6 feet tall or 180lbs). While some people prefer a shorter wrap with less fabric to play with, this will limit your tying options. With a slightly longer wrap, you can always tuck in the excess fabric, keeping it accessible for a variety of carries, when you become more experienced and adventurous in the future.
If you're an individual that is above average in height (closer to 6') or plus-sized in weight (180lbs or more), the larger size would be the better option.

Due to the handwoven process little irregularities in the fabric may occur which contributes to the uniqueness of each wrap and should be cherished and enjoyed. If such irregularities will be bothersome, a handmade woven wrap may not be the best choice for your babywearing needs.
The Art of Wrapping; A Time-Honored Tradition
Baby wrapping is an ancient tradition that has been practiced for generations, and continues to be a popular practice in many cultures around the world. Truly one of the most versatile baby carriers available today, the wearing positions with a baby wrap carrier are countless due to the simplistic design; just a long, rectangular piece of cloth that you creatively drape around your body in such a way as to snuggle your baby into the folds created. While you have the flexibility to tie a baby wrap to your body in an unlimited number of ways, the most basic carry is one that drapes the fabric over both shoulders and around the torso to create a secure and comfortable pocket in front, to snuggle your little one in tummy-to-tummy.
What size Girasol Wrap do I need?
The most important sizing consideration when it comes to a baby wrap baby carrier is whether or not you will have enough fabric for the multitude of wrapping positions you can put your baby in. For this reason, it is always preferable to size up. Even if you don't think you'll be doing the more complicated carries that may require more fabric, the option is always there with a slightly longer baby wrap. It's very disappointing to find out down the road when you have the time or inclination to experiment with your wrap, that an extra foot of fabric would have opened up many new carrying positions. A wrap that is slightly longer looks very elegant with a trailing tail at your side or down your back, but if this is bothersome, you can always add a simple straight hem to your carrier which can be taken out in the future, or tuck this extra trailing fabric into the folds of your wrap, once tied on.
The 4.6 meter wrap yields enough fabric to fit the majority of build types for a wide variety of baby carries.
