What Size Wrap Do I Need? What Can I Do With My Wrap?

by Nancy Lentini-Brown

One of our most common questions re wrapping is 'what can I do with my Size **?
Here's a quick way to answer!!

Lengths of wraps by size:

2 – 2.7 m
3 – 3.2 m                       
4 – 3.7 m
5 – 4.2 m
6 – 4.6 m
7 – 5.2 m

*these are estimates and each wrap may vary by make and taper length
**all carries for sizes are estimates and larger or smaller wrappers and wrappees may require one size larger or smaller wrap in order to complete the carry. All carries are based on a general size 6 as base size.
***where applicable COTW links are included in the name of the position. YouTube clips are show where possible and where not a video clip can be found by following the link in the ()s.
