Swaddling Wrap Comparison

I’ve been asked several times this week on how our newborn baby wraps differ from one style to another, so here is an explanation on the characteristics of each fabric. ANDDD… thank you for pushing me to do this overdue baby wrap comparison post!

A couple things to know before we begin.. all of our baby wraps are exclusive to Custom Photo Props with exception of the Nubble wraps. We choose the fibers, dyes, elasticity content, and size of each wrap and bring it to life.  We love to curate new products for newborn photographers that surpass what’s currently on the market. Since we love having our own exclusive collection of superior products, we are discontinuing the Nubble wrap line. It’s not that they aren’t good in their own way, we just don’t like being like everyone else!

Custom Photo Props STRETCH SCALE

1 = No stretch at all

2 = The fabric has some movement (maybe 10% shift)

3 = It has enough stretch to swaddle a baby without issue

4 = Oh.. this has even more flexibility and I can easily wrap a baby with this

5 = Holy smokes, this has some serious stretch!

 

Custom Photo Props  SOFTNESS RANKING

1 = I’d wouldn’t use that to wash my floors!

2 = Eh.. it’s not the best feeling out there but can be used for short periods of time

3 = Ah.. this feels alright

4 = Oh.. this is cozy and feels good

5 = Incredible softness and comfort! Give me a place to sleep immediately..zZ..zzZ..ZZZ
