Sizing Charts & Measuring Tips
Skip down to the Size Charts.
Please size yourself according to what your measurements are
BEFORE your procedure. If you did not size yourself prior
to surgery, see below for tips.
Size chart is the manufacturer's suggested guideline and is not 100% guaranteed by manufacturer for every body shape. Actual fit may vary from size chart guidelines.
One Garment: This
type of garment is typically worn right after surgery during
the initial 1-2 weeks of post-op and it is designed to be
less tight and bigger due to your swelling. Stage One garments
have zippers for ease of putting it on and taking it off.
Two Garment: This
type of garment is typically worn during 2-8 weeks post-op
or longer (as needed) and it is designed to be smaller and
tighter since you will have less swelling during this phase.
Stage Two garments do not have zippers. Please note that stage 2 garments in this brand run small.
What size should I get If I am �In between two sizes�?
If your measurements cause you to be "in between two sizes" with a Stage 2 garment of this brand,
you may want to choose the bigger size as the second stage garments in this brand tend to run small. If you are in between two sizes for a Stage 1 garment, then you may be able to keep the smaller size or the bigger size option depending on how many inches difference you are from the smaller size range and the bigger size range.
Additionally, it is important to always give priority to the measurement that is addressing your surgical area. For example, if you had a tummy tuck and are buying an above the knee garment, and your thigh measurement indicates a Medium and your waist measurement indicates a Large, then you will want to select for a Large.
do I estimate my measurements if I did not size myself before
Stage One Garment: If your surgery already happened and you are a few days post-op and will have the garment delivered to you quickly so that it arrives only a few days after your surgery, then you can consider a stage 1 garment still (however, if by the time you get the garment you will be in your second week you may want to just get a Stage 2 garment). If you did not size yourself prior to the surgery, the size you should get for your Stage 1 garment depends on the degree of swelling that you are currently experiencing. If you are considerably swollen right now, you can size yourself according to where you are today and then you may take off 1" inch from your current measurement depending on how swollen you are. It is not recommended to take off more than 1" inch as the garments in this brand offer substantial compression and are tight. For example, if your waist
is a 36" right now after surgery and you are swollen to the point where you think you've added about 1-2 inches, then use the measurement of 35" (36-1=35) for your waist to determine the size of garment to select. If you are not very swollen, you can simply size yourself according to your current post-surgery measurements.
Stage Two Garment: As the Stage 2 garments of this brand tend to run small, if
you are at around 1-2 weeks post-op (or even earlier or later
than this period) and have little or no swelling,
you can size yourself according to where you are today and
use your current post-surgery measurements to determine what
size of garment to select. Even if you have some swelling at this stage, you may want to size yourself according to where you are today and not take off any inches (to compensate for swelling) because the garments in this brand tend to run small. At the maximum, if you have a lot of swelling still then take your current size and take off 1" inch from your current measurement to determine the size of garment to select. It is not recommended to take off more than 1" inch as the garments in this brand offer substantial compression and are tight. For example, if your waist is a 36" right now after surgery and you are swollen to the point where you think you've added about 1-2 inches, then use the measurement of 35" (36-1=35) for your waist to determine the size of garment to select.
Measure around the smallest part of the waistline.
Area: Stand with the feet together and measure
around the fullest part of the hip/thigh area, about 9 to
10 inches below the natural waistline.
Arm/Bicep Area: For
arm procedures, measure around the arm at the fullest part
of the biceps.
Bust & Chest: Measure around the fullest part
of the bust/chest area while wearing usual undergarments.
Measurements (Under Breast): Before surgery,
measure around the chest circumference, directly beneath the
breast. This will be your bra size. Because the bra is uniquely
designed to contour to the breast size after surgery, no cup
size measurement is required.
Under Breast measurement is only to be taken for bras, but
is not relevant for other garments.
