My Pouch Sling Size
To find your pouch sling size, place a soft measuring tape on on one shoulder and loosely measure to opposite hip bone. Keep in mind that most people wear a Medium or Large sling. Sling size usually corresponds to pre-pregnancy shirt size. If you have large breasts and normally wear a large shirt, then you'll most likely wear a large or x-large sling. If you have narrow shoulders, are petite, or small chested and normally wear a small shirt, then you'll most likely wear a small size sling.
If you are pregnant and have not gained a lot of weight or are naturally petite, then go with your pre-pregnancy shirt size. If you have gained a lot of weight or naturally have larger breasts, go with your pre-pregnancy shirt size plus one size larger. If you would feel more comfortable getting measured, you can loosely place a measuring tape on your back from shoulder to opposite hip bone.

If your sling is too small or big
Pouch slings hang diagonally on your body from one to shoulder to opposite hip bone. A sling that is too small will feel tight on your body, be nearly impossible to get your baby into the pouch, and ride high on your chest. A sling that is too large will not stay taut along your body, appear flimsy, not hammock your child well, and hang below your bellybutton.
