advice for new carrier/sling

i've always been partial to the pouch sling, however my little one is slightly on the chunky side and doesnt fit in it so well anymore, any suggestions for a pouch-like sling thats maybe adjustable? i'm big into the hip carry which is why the pouch worked so well for me in the beginning, i just hate having to change the size because shes getting too big i want something that will last longer kwim?

How old/big is she? A ring sling might be a good option, but if she's over 15-20lbs, that can get really heavy really fast. A Scootababy isn't as cheap, but it's WORLDS better for support of bigger kiddos. DD usually is happy on my back, but sometimes she just wants mommy face time and I still need to get stuff done, so the Scootababy is GREAT!

I would say a ring sling if you are still wanting to hip carry, but ideally I would get something to do a back carry with like a mei tai or ssc that will be more supportive over both shoulders.
