Here are MY measurements:

I wear size small, pre-preg (but I am huge now!)
The site says 2 or 3...

5' 0" - 5' 7"

Re: What size Hotsling??

If you are pg, go by your prepg size/weight. And USUALLY if you are between two sizes... the smaller is better.

It will vary as well if it's summer or winter where you live and also if you are carrying/wearing a newborn or a toddler.

Re: What size Hotsling??

See that stinks because I totally say larger. I'm sorry! Here's why:

I'm 5feet 5iinches, 130lbs, size 6-8 in clothing, 34B bra, and I think that size 3 fits better. I'm only slightly bigger than you and personally I like that extra room because otherwise I wouldn't be able to wear a sweatshirt comfortably with baby in sling. I sling my toddler in the hotsling but I also recently was slinging a 6 month old teeny tiny thing(smaller than average 6 month olds) so I think the size 3 is better.

The website said for me to get a 4. I bought a 4 in the sateen stretch fabric. It's too small. I wish I got a 5. I wonder if it depends on how big your DC is and what type of carry you use. I'm new to BWing, so I'm no expert.

You and I are very close in size. I am 5'2", 120 lbs and a 34C. My size 3 Hotsling fits very nicely.
