Curious about your buying experience. I am especially interested in Girasol wraps and I am considering buying a Girasol directly from Germany—has anyone done this, and if so, did everything work out?

I'd consider buying used.  Check out the FSOT subforum on diaperswappers.com or thebabywearer.com.

I recently placed an order directly through girasol.de but when they checked their stock they were out of the one I had ordered. Their communication about being out of stock, when they would have more instock, and choosing a different wrap was very quick and friendly, but I wound up finding the wrap I wanted at another European vendor (babybij.nl). When ordering overseas remember that you may have to pay duty when your wrap arrives. Have fun shopping, Girasol makes so many pretty wraps :)
