Converting wrap--> ringsling, help please!

I have a shorty that is not getting used as a wrap. My toddler likes quick up and downs, and I need a carrier for hip carries. I think I want to send my shorty to be "slingified". I am lookings at SBP and I think the pleated shoulder seems like it is very versatile and user friendly... I am 5'6" and about 115 lbs. with bony shoulders. Anyone want to give an opinion on shoulder type or sizing?
Also, which ring colors!?
It is this wrap, and I have a boy.

SBP is always a good choice! great, easy to use shoulder, and Jan is an amazing WAHM!

I would probably go with bronze rings and Med length

Medium? I was trying to decide between XS and S... I wear a small shirt, and I don't care for a long tail. Waist length wouild be plenty long for me!

Yes, I like bronze. And blue.

I prefer that rail of the wrap to the girly colors! I also can't figure out if I am supposed to ask for the right side out or the wrong side out?

In that case Small, lol. If you ever plan on reselling I wouldn't do XS, they don't seem to resell well.
