this wrap is blanket soft after one wash and dry. I do have the tighten it up a lot while wearing, but i think that is because it is stretching out after going through the dryer.
I'm using it as a shorty, it probably wouldn't be as much of an issue is a multi pass carry.
I love my wrap!!!!! It's soft and I can tell it will be even softer with some breaking in! My wrap arrived on time in great packaging no issues! I love the hand written note on my receipt too! That made it feel so personal!
