Diva Wraps Sizing

Diva Milano Woven Wraparound Sling is available in sizes XS (3.7m), S (4.2m), M (4.6m), L (5.2m) and XL (5.7m).

Diva Essenza Woven Wraparound Sling is available in sizes S (4.2m), M (4.6m) and L (5.2m).

The right size will depend on your own measurements and how you prefer to carry your baby: size 3.7m is suitable for 'Kangaroo' carry, size 4.2m for the 'Cross Carry' and sizes 4.6m and 5.2m for the 'Wrap Cross Carry'.

The medium-sized sling (4.6m) is generally suitable for most adults and carrying styles, the 5.2m sling might be better for larger adults and/or babies. If your own body size is no more than 14 you can use Wrap Size 4.6m for all carrying methods. For body size 14 (GB) / 12 (US) we recommend Wrap Size 5.2m.

AGE RESTRICTIONS

Diva Milano mei tais can be used with:

  • newborns (with a hood used as a headrest and mei tai body base reduced in width by special cords with stoppers); you can also reduce the height of the back panel by slight tucking of the belt;
  • most babies up to 12-18 months with the upper side of the mei tai back ending under their head (the baby should be properly positioned without excessive sagging in the back, with a mei tai back properly pulled up);
  • toddlers up to 2-3 years with their shoulders and sometimes arms outside.

A baby on the left side is a big boy 12 months old. A doll on the right side has dimensions of a 1-2 months baby.

 

in 2015 we changed the hood construction, now all mei tais have hoods which can be fixed with 2 half-rings on each shoulder strap. You can use a hood as a headrest with 2 possible positions. When the headrest is fixed in the upper position, it serves as a mei tai back extension so can be recommended especially for toddlers.
