Wrap sizes advice

I got a 4.5 vatanai and its plenty long enough to try all kinds of carries.

I'm 5'4 and when I'm not pregnant im a size 2. Is the Vat gonna be too long??

Is it easy to shorten if need be?

I also bought a Didy in size 4 that I have listed for sale on the fsot board but now I'm wondering if I should hang on to it since its shorter.

Help! Lol

Re: Wrap sizes advice

I'm 5'2'' and about 105lbs. I have a 4.2 Girasol and can't do all the wraps I want to do. I think a 4.5 would be perfect. I definitely think, based on my experience, that a 4 would be too short to do what I want to do.

Re: Wrap sizes advice

Definitely hang on to both wraps so you can try out different carries. Most people who wrap alot like to have a couple different sizes for different purposes.

Vats are a little tricky size wise because they have such steep tapers (compared to a Didy for example) If you don't mind tying in the tapers they wrap long, but if you are uncomfortable tying in the tapers they wrap short.

It's hang on to both. You'll probably use different carries with a 4 than with the Vat. If I absolutely only could keep one I would keep the slightly longer Vat for versatility.

For reference I'm 5'5" and a size 4 and my base wrap length is a size 5 (4.2m). So a 4.5m vat isn't much longer than that.
