What Size Ring Sling Should I Get?


Our Baby Tula Ring Slings use some of our beautiful woven wraps, designed and woven specifically for Baby Tula. Using this strong woven material, that quickly softens and glides, makes our ring slings a wonderful option to use with your baby from birth on. They are also a compact, quick on-the-go babywearing option: compactly folds, easy to bring along in your bag and slips on and off. We offer our ring slings in a variety of stylish designs and fabric blends to help you keep your hands free while keeping you and baby comfortable!

Thinking of getting your first ring sling? The first step is choosing your ring sling design, but then you may be wondering what size should you get?

Our ring slings come in S/M and L/XL. S/M is around 77″ and L/XL is around 87″ unwashed (slight variation is intentional as we cut to allow for up to 20% shrinkage with our Tencel® blend).

One way to choose what size to get is to use your shirt size and get the size that coordinates with that. However, you’ll also want to consider the ‘tail’ and how long of a tail you prefer! The tail is the excess fabric that hangs down once you have the ring sling adjusted for you and baby. The S/M will leave a shorter tail than the L/XL. The tail does not impact the safety or ability to carry, but is more of a stylistic preference.

Below we have included some images of various mothers wearing different sized ring slings. We hope this helps clarify the different sizes. Remember: the fit of Baby Tula Ring Slings is very versatile, and both sizes will fit most wearers.

    I am no longer positive the place you are getting
    your information, but great topic. I needs to spend some time finding
    out much more or working out more. Thanks for wonderful information I used to be on the lookout for this info for my mission.


    I visit daily some web sites and information sites
    to read content, however this website gives feature based articles.

    Hiya! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa?
    My blog discusses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit
    from each other. If you happen to be interested feel free to send me an e-mail.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Great blog by the way!


    Yes! Finally something about natural skin care products.
