im a size 16/18 when im not pregnant and it doesnt bother me. i have bigger friends (24w-28w) who havent complained. if we lived closer to each other i would totally let you borrow to try! do you have a babywearing group near you? we have one that meets at the library (its about 45 minute drive, but they only meet once a month) and you pay a $30 yearly membership fee but each month you get to take home a carrier to try before you buy, or if you have a cloth diaper/natural parenting store, they usually have tons of things you can try on!

Unfortunately, we don't have any stores or anything like that here in this podunk town. There's a place about 4 hours from me that will allow me to try one, but it would require me to drive up there and back twice in 1 week and I just can't justify the time and money.
Wife to sweet husband Jeff and mother to 2 beautiful girls: Emily (2) and Jocelyn (1).
I had a sleepy wrap but ended up getting rid of it because of the same reasons mentioned - didn't feel tight enough/baby felt like she was going to fall out without me holding her. I got a cheapy Infantino that is similar to a Baby Bjorn for when baby is tiny. I'm a curvy gal, size 14, and my Boba is very comfy even holding DD at 25lbs. Well not super comfy when I'm pregnant but before that it was fine. It's not the cutest carrier out there but it works for me. I had a Babyhawk mei tei that I didn't care for and ended up selling.
I have a Moby. It was a love hate with it. 1. It got hot. 2. I felt like until he got older I needed to hold him or forever checking to make sure his neck wasn't flopping (some women don't seem to care but i'm obsessive about it) and he was able to breath. 3. it took a long time to put on.
I will be searching for a new kind this time. I'd like to babywear more.
I have had the Moby wrap (sold it) and could never get the hand of it. It was hard for me to get put on and then harder for me to get the baby arranged properly. I know tons of people who swear by it though, so maybe I am a noob
