Okay, lemme try to answer you, Crayon.
first off, awww...my opinion is that highly valued...cool! I appreciate it!
Regarding more pics...the site owner is in the process of culling more pics offa the mamas who bought them...also, a great site to check out is the main companies Korean website, I cant read Korean but you can look around easily, also they have a ton more pics and a ton more colors!http://www.ihosa.co.kr
(I believe thats it!)
But, I agree that she needs more pics...and she's workin' on it!
About fabrics, yup...thats most peoples issue w/ them as well...I love the denim, it really looks like a vest and goes w/ like everything...Im into casual stuff myself hence the appeal but alot of people, myself included have asked about solids...
The fabrics appeal to Korean mamas...if youve ever seen real wide blanket podaegis from Korea you'll know what I mean
...they kinda dont ring well w/ most westerners...I know if you email the women who runs the site she can special order the chunei you want from Korea...take a gander at the Korean website. They do have a black velvet one several people are drooling over that shes trying to get in stock over here.
Regarding the childs butt and legs, frankly...that was my and my husbands first concern too..when I saw the chunei I was like...?
But, from using other Asian carriers-like straight outta Asia...ive learned that the child sitting on fabric, strap over leg is kinda the norm...it does help to keep the childs legs splayed esp as they get older-less butt poppin' and butt launchin!
but, the Chunei is rather cleverly constructed, it actually has a seat-think Ergo but its the fabric pleated up, it makes a rather efficient seat, if the child is sitting deeply in the seat-as they should be the strap goes over their thighs...also the strap is sewn in, its not adjustable...and the childs legs are properly splayed...
Like ANY carrier...rs, MT, etc etc...it will leave a small red mark on the childs legs...and this one does so as well, but surprisingly...he gets more of a mark in the Maya than in the chunei. I think if you tweak the straps and get the child in good, there is less pressure on the legs.
overall, i do find it more comfy than the other SSC's ive tried...i really *hate* thick waist belts*...so I mean...if your interested in 1, have the $$ id say, try one...or try to borrow one!
ne way, hope this helps!
oh btw, you can do a excellent front carry w/ them too...dh used it as such in a local museum...after they, rudely enough told me to take ds off my back!!!
