    The one you linked is basically a SPOC (simple piece of cloth), so it has the advantage of being cheap but it won't be as supportive or comfortable as a GSW (german-style woven wrap), which are woven differently. If budget is an issue then perhaps have a look for second hand wraps. Hoppediz, Storchenwiege and Miel et Malice are all good wraps that tend to go quite cheaply, Ellevill have a selection of reduced wraps and Didymos have a specials page with some bargains.

    Thanks! Are GypsyMama wraps a SPOC type too then? and what about rebozos?
    Looks like I'll have to convince DH that we need a GSW. He doesn't like spending money :haha:

    That's not a true woven wrap. That is just a SPOC. Cheap yes, can be comfy, but doesn't hold up like a real woven wrap. A real woven wrap (mainly come from Europe - Germany, Norway, Belgium) is woven on a loom.
