I have to admit I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about the unique 2 way stretch of the Boba Wraps. So all other stretchy wraps I’ve used have had most of the stretch going top to bottom and then only a small stretch going long ways.
My biggest concern with the long-way stretch was that it wouldn’t be as supportive and it would be difficult to achieve a high and tight position – I was worried that stretchy equals saggy. And turns out I was wrong. For some context about my own preferences I actually ended up using woven wraps because I didn’t want any stretch at all from my wrap, I wanted more firm support.
So I feel like this may not be the wrap for me BUT I think this is an incredible wrap for a beginner or new parent because as strange as it sounds that extra stretch I think will make it easier for parents to get a tighter fit.
Incredible Product Photos
This is such a small thing to be so impressed with, and this might be because of industry experience, but the product photos provided by the Boba brand are absolutely incredible. For example – above is a very realistic example of what breastfeeding in a wrap can look like. This is absolutely wonderful to see though for new parents choosing a wrap and seeing what it might look like in their actual daily lives.
It’s not even the only breastfeeding photo in their photo library. Below are a few other product photo shots I love.
