I'd like to wear my baby more but I haven't found anything that I really like and I'm not ready to invest in one of the more expensive carriers unless I can be more certain that it'll work for me. I've been having some weight issues since having my boys so I'm up to about a size 20, and I'm thinking that might be a part of the problem. Are there any carriers that work better for larger women?

I'm plus size and haven't had a problem with fit and have tried many different carriers. DO you have a local baby wearing group? You could go and try on some carriers there.

I am a size 18 and have a Beco butterfly 2 that is very comfortable for us. I am learning to use a gauze wrap too. Good luck! A mei tai is comfortable for me too.

Wraps, ring slings, and ergo carriers are good for fluffier moms.. :o)

I am 5'7" and almost 200 lbs. I have size F boobs. I wear in a Sleepywrap and a Boba just fine. I am not sold on slings though.
