I think the most supportive kind is going to be a woven wrap, like a Didymos or Storchenwiege (there are many others, but those are two very well known and excellent brands).
As far as easiest to learn on yet still supportive, my vote is for a Gypsy Mama Bali Baby Stretch. It's lightweight but supportive and very very easy to learn with!
