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 base size is the size of wrap with which you can comfortably do a Front Wrap Cross Carry (FWCC).
A FWCC is used as it is usually a good carry to start with. It is comfy and supportive and learning this carry will introduce you to many key wrapping skills.
The good news is you don’t have to actually try tying a FWCC in order to figure out your base size. Our simple guide will give you an idea of which size might be right for you:
Note: If you are tall (5’10″+) or have a baby who is more than 12 months old, we would suggest going one size up. If you are under 5′ we would suggest going down a size.
Top tip: 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.
Finding your Base Size

Baby wraps not for you?
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.
