Need help quick on Girasol sizing!

I am looking at purchasing a Girasol and using it as a wrap. I am a size 16-18 what length should I get?

4.6
5.2

I have a metromamma stretch wrap and I like the length of that one if that helps any?


**THANKS FOR EVERYONES HELP, I DECIDED TO GO WITH A 5.2**

4.6 You'd be swimming in anything bigger.

Re: Need help quick on Girasol sizing!

What carries do you plan on doing? That is what is really going to be important. I am a size 4.6, and I use a 4.6 as my "regular" size. I really could get by with a 4.2, but can do absolutely any carry I want with a 4.6.

Re: Need help quick on Girasol sizing!

I am still learning how to wrap. I am getting good at wearing DD#2 in front and am planning on learning how to back wrap at the next local babywearing meetup. I have a gauze wrap that is just a bit short and I think that keeps me from wearing it

Re: Need help quick on Girasol sizing!

So what size is the gauze?
This chart recommends a 5.2 for your size http://www.peppermint.com/didymos-size-chart.html
I am of the opinion that you can always shorten a wrap later if it is too big, you can't make one longer. Also, when you are first learning, extra length can make it a little easier. Once you are more experienced, you will be able to do the same carries with less fabric.
