FIND YOUR SIZE
1. Place a soft measuring tape at the outside edge of your shoulder in the middle (where your shirt seam is).
2. Then loosely drape the tape measure across your body down to the top of your opposite hip bone near your side.
    Give it some slack so that the tape measure is loose across your body and not pulled tight.
3. 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.
IF YOU ARE PREGNANT AND SHOWING

Ask someone to help you or try to do it by yourself if you are still flexible enough to measure.

Place a soft measuring tape at the outside edge of your shoulder in the middle (where your shirt seam is). 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 side to measure to is where the outside seam of your pant leg is. 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 is not an exact way to pick a size but it is a good hint to start.

• The slings will shrink approximately 1 inch when washed and dried on medium high heat. We highly suggest you to air dry your sling. You may want to order a size up if you dry your sling with heat drying machine.
