Woven Wrap Size Guide
Woven wraps come in seven sizes, each size is a specific length which can be used for different carries.
Size 2 – 2.7m
Size 3 – 3.2m
Size 4 – 3.7m
Size 5 – 4.2m
Size 6 – 4.7m
Size 7 – 5.2m
Size 8 – 5.7m
Ring Sling – about 2m
Woven wrap sizes are determined by the length of the fabric, the width is always the same. For an Oscha sling, the width will generally be between 61-70cm.
The best size baby wrap for you is determined by your size and height, the size of your baby and the carry you want to use. We suggest starting with a Front Wrap Cross Carry, so with this in mind, here is a simple guide that will give you an idea of which size might be right for you:
If you are tall (5ft 10 +) or have a baby who is more than 12 months old, we would suggest going one size up. If you are buying a wrap to share and are unsure which size to buy, it is generally recommended to buy with the main user in mind.
What is a Base Size?
If you have been wrapping for a while or have been researching the babywearing community, you might have heard the term ‘Base size’. Simply, a Bases size is the size of wrap with which you can comfortably do a Front Wrap Cross Carry.
You can find your Base size using our guide above.
Wrapping with your Base Size will give you the flexibility to try a few different types of carries and discover what suits you and your little one. That is why we generally recommend you start with this size of woven baby wrap.
Once you are comfortable with your Base Size, you will be able to explore other types of carries that require different length slings. Learn why you may like to choose a different size and discover what other carries you can do with alternative size.

Please note: The final length of your sling will be +/- 10cm the lengths above.
We cut our slings a little longer to allow for some shrinkage during the first wash, after their bath they should be the correct length (within tolerances).
All measurements are taken on a flat surface, measurements taken ‘soft tape in hand’ will not reflect the true size of your sling.
