Default In the loopy surround bow, what is the point of the base bow?

I am trying my hand at making my first loopy surround bow and I found a great tutorial on it, but it tells me to make a base/support bow. What is the point of this bow and is it really necessary? Thanks!

It adds extra height to the stacked bow, I usually add a base bow unless I'm making a bow for a very small child and then I omit the base bow. I'm my opinion it looks more finished with a base bow.

I use a "twisted" bow as my base bow.

A base bow is what makes it an official stacked over the top bow, otherwise it's just a layered bow.
