Best hip carrier for short mama
With a ring sling, you can wrap the tail around the ring area several times to shorten it. Not sure if that makes sense...
I'm not a big fan of the hip carry, but I'm 5'3" and love my mei tai. I do a lot of front carries comfortably. I have done hip carries easily with it, but I just don't like the hip carry. I'd prefer a back carry, at which point I find an ssc like the Beco/Ergo really cozy.
Good luck finding the right carrier for you!!
Just using this as an example, but take a look at how the dad on this page has the tail wrapped.
I am 5'2'' and 100lbs not pregnant. I really like the Ergo.
I have not used our pouch sling, hip or otherwise, at all the last year and a half or so...our youngest is 22 months. The Ergo, even on the hip carry does a much, much, much better job of weight distribution. With the pouch sling it really pulled on my one hipe and shoulder. It didn't use the entire torso like the Ergo does. I think that's very important when you have a small frame like we do.
ETA: I got my Ergo from BabySteals. If you're into pink check their archives, they may have some left. If not, they post their discontinued models on there every so often so keep your eye out.
