Default Plus size mamas and Ergos

Do any of our plus size mamas find it hard to wear the Ergo? I want to wear Bekah in the hip carry and it doesn't seem like it will fit And it's very bulky with all the weight I already carry around. lol Does anyone else seem to have that problem? I don't want to sell it but it sits unused bc it's pretty uncomfortable

They have a hip belt extension that you may need. I have found that I can't wear them because I have a pelvis injury, but I did wear one (can't remember if I had the extension or not) that I borrowed from a friend for a disneyland trip when dd was 4 months old, and it fit, and was comfortable except for the pelvis injury part. I was doing a front carry.
~~~~~~~
I would have been a size 18 at that time, fwiw.

I don't really think the hip carry is all that comfy in the Ergo. I only use it for front and back. I'm fluffy but not quite in the plus range (size 12-14 normally) and DH is a men's XL and we both use it without the extender, and we both find it comfy.

I had a BEco and I liked it, but I felt like it could push the waist of my pants down sometimes! I preferred my onbu or my ring sling b/c I liked nothing around my waist.

That's what I've been using (ring sling).

The hip carry is useless on the Ergo. If I want to hip carry I either use my ring sling or a wrap. Ergo is best on the front for littles and back for bigs.
