DP is a big bloke and is concerned that none of the standard slings that are available will fit round him. sad

I've tried to reassure him that they must make them but hoped you could suggest some?

Thanks! smile

Yeah I should probably make it clearer it's to fit on the bigger guy...not to carry the bigger guy LOL.

DH is 6'2" and 16 1/2 stone (was up to 17 stone recently) and can use the Manduca with crossed straps and the Connecta solarweave. Prob a couple of inches left on each so could possibly struggle if over winter coats etc, but we tend to put coats over the slings anyway.

Rose and rebellion have pretty long straps too and so does the Tula. Rose and Rebellion are really nice company and small enough that if you e-mailed them and asked they would probably send you the measurements or even be able to make you a custom for a bit extra.
