Re: Ring Sling length
It's not a safety issue as long as it fits around you. There is really a lot of leeway in ring sling sizing, the main difference is how far down the tail will hang, you really only need the tail to be 8 inches but an 8 inch tail looks pretty silly. Unless you are very heavy, I would think that a medium would work but the tail may be a bit shorter than you would prefer. I personally find that I prefer my slings on the shorter side, but that's just me. I can use pretty much any size.
