SIZING | A Quick Guide

ObiMama is the leader in creating carriers that fit a dynamic range of body types. All bodies are unique: from basics of height and weight, to hip flexibility and "arms-in" preferences, ObiMama has you covered. When in doubt... it's better to have a toddler in a carrier that's too small than a baby in a carrier that's too large.

Shoulder Strap Sizing

WCMT: Half the width of the original wrap. Measurements are taken from longest rail.

WWMT: 80" long and 24" wide. Tissue weight linen padded straps with blunt edges.

We also offer four length sizes, because it's not a custom fit unless it's really a custom fit:

  • Petite: 75″
  • Small: 80″
  • Medium: 85″
  • Large: 90″

The average size adult, male or female, will fit a medium nicely. If you are very large or very small choose large or small straps. If you like long tails or fancy finishes, size up.

Body Size: Length and Stages

We offer two heights

  • Short: 16″ long, not including waistband or sleep hood
  • Tall: 18″ long, not including waistband or sleep hood

We offer three widths

  • Stage 1 (baby): 16″ wide seat, not including seat darts
  • Stage 2 (toddler): 18″ wide seat, not including seat darts

body size: cinchy

We offer two fully adjustable cinchy sizes:

  • Baby        16" tall x 17" seat
  • Big Kid    18" tall x 20" seat

Adjustable cords set at the diagonal allow you to make small adjustments to get a more accurate fit.  The body can be cinched to give a deeper seat and narrower or shorter body panel lengths. Exactly how small depends on the weave and fiber of the fabric.

This feature is less about creating an infant to preschooler carrier, and more about added versatility for your growing child/siblings. 

Waist Strap Sizing

WCMT: Classic three piece waistband. Center top-stitched section is 20″ x 5″ wide at widest point.

Single layer waist ties are half the width of the original wrap.

A medium will fit any average size adult, male or female. If you are very large or small choose a large or small waist. If you like long tails or fancy finishes, size up.

  • Petite: 55″
  • Small: 60″
  • Medium: 70″
  • Large: 80″

WWMT: 70" one-piece waistband firmly padded and quilted center with lightly padded waist ties.
