by somuchlove4UJanuary 22, 2013 at 3:10 PMHave you looked into moby wraps? I'm plus size myself and the wrap seems like it would work.
by larissalarieJanuary 22, 2013 at 4:27 PMThe Ergo "sport" has an extended waistband strap. I'm not certain what size it goes up to, but it's a good amount longer than my regular one.

I am a size 16/18 and the Boba3G fits me with LOTS of room to spare. My husband is a bigger guy and it fits him with room to spare.

I love my ring sling. I made it myself from the pattern on MayaWrap.com and gave it a couple feet extra fabric...
by MaryJarrettJanuary 22, 2013 at 6:44 PMA lot of wraps would work. Especially if you made them yourself. :) I know things like Ergo have the option of extenders.
A moby wrap is great for newborns but doesn't last long. Stretchy wraps don't provide enough support once baby is about 20ish pounds.
Woven wraps are nice. I love mine. I can still wrap my 4 yr old nicely.
I have a gauze wrap for summer so it doesn't get too hot.
I also have a ring sling, and I'm planning to make a meitai.
wearyourbaby.com is the site I use for my wrap making advice.
As for trying before you buy, check boutiques in your area. Some have 30 day trials. :)

the Ergo and the Boba 3G are both great for larger moms and size down if needed. Im actually saving for a 3G since it would be able to be adjusted to me size and to my fiance's size with very little hassel.
I am a size 16 and I have Room to spare on the Beco Butterfly II. No extender needed. I had an ergo and I was pretty tight and I almost needed the extender. You can also use ring slings or longer warps. I have a babyette gauze wrap but would love a woven.
