Did the Ergo waist strap get longer?

I bought a used Ergo organic today from a very nice local mom on one of my FB groups. I totally trust her and the ergo is authentic, but I did not notice until I got home and tried it on that the waist strap is super short. I am 3 wks PP and wearing a size 14 and the strap barely fits.

When we tried ergos in the store yesterday, the strap was much much longer.

She said this one was bought new 4 yrs ago. Did they make the straps longer, and if so, when? I love the carrier and it does fit me, so I'm keeping it, but sadly it won't fit DH so if we buy another used I would love to know to ask when it was bought so I know if the strap will be the short one.

Yeah, if you're a size 14, you'll need an extender for an older Ergo. Really burst my bubble when I had to get an extender in 2008!

It fits me but only just, we were just bummed because it won't fit Dh for sure. That said, I will generally be the one carrying him. The extender is only like $8 on amazon so we will just order there if we need one. Thanks guys!

Make sure that the buckles are the same since they changed the buckle style with the new ones and I don't think they sell the old extenders anymore.

I had an organic ergo from 6 or so years ago and the extender did not work. I might still have the one I had but it did not work. I am about the same size as you while not pregnant or a little smaller but am now worried because I sold both of my ergos and was hoping to get another. I am frustrated for you because we had awesome experiences with the ergo.
