I need sizing help as well! I was just looking at the chart and I'm confused!!

Tshirts I'm a M-L which puts me at a 4
I'm 5'1" which puts me at a 3
I weigh 121ish lbs which puts me at a 2
I wear a DD bra which puts me at a 4
and my shoulder to hip is 24" which is a 3

Am I really that mis proportioned???!?!

I wanted to bump this and say I just checked my target. They had ONE size 3 HS. My guess is they didn't do so well in my area and our local target probably won't carry them anymore bc it was marked down to $9.96. It rang up as $9.36!!! I'm beyond thrilled that I just bought my first pouch (a HS at that!) for less than $10!!!

What?! great buy!

My local Target carries them and I bought one as a gift for a pg co-worker of my hubby. Gotta show that there is a market for them!

Well the alternate photo shows off it has a bottle holder. I think it's some sort of B'journ type carrier.

Yea it was a great buy! You should have seen me lol I had to use quite a bit of self discipline to keep from jumping up and down with excitement!!! I was like a child on Christmas morning!!!

Of course after DBF saw how excited I was he said (with a grin on his face) "and now would be the time that I tell you you're not getting it!" He thinks he's funny

I checked out both our Targets (we live near a state border, so one store is in one state and one is in the other state) neither carry them. I checked the list, and I will have to drive a ways to find one that does.

Yay! Now I can direct people to the Target website instead of writing it down. And maybe I can get my prego sis-in-law to give it a try. I love my hotsling!

Wow, looks like a lot of people who wouldn't have thought about a HS is now buying one especially if they can get it at Target. This is a good move to get Hotslings into the mainstream market for sure. Good all around!

See I think it is totally cool that Hotslings was started by a mom and run by a mom, but now that they are selling them for cheaper at Target than the other wahm stores (online and b&m) I dont see how it wont undercut the wahm who has them in her shop.....Who made Hotslings what it is today.

I do think it is important to get better slings in the mainstream market, and so nice for Target to be branching out a bit (in other departments as well). But I'll stick with supporting wahm shops, even if it means I may pay a few more $.

Just my two cents!

I swear I posted to this thread yesterday, and now I don't see it. Wierd! Anyway. . .

I went to Target today and lo and behold I found some Hotslings there. They were in the baby section on an endcap full of 'new products'. Kinda dumb that they aren't displayed with the other baby carriers. They had 4 different patterns that I remember seeing and were priced at $39.99. I was excited to get to try on a size 3, since I always felt my size 2 was a bit tight. Unfortunately, dd wouldn't cooperate, and as soon as I got her in it, she was screaming to get down. Oh well. I did end up buying a Dipees & Wipees, so the shopping trip wasn't a complete bust. Oh, and I didn't see the RS and MT that I've heard Target is selling.
