How do I measure my waist size correctly?
Do not worry many people are a little unsure exactly how to do this but when done correctly ordering the correct size from us is simple.
Step 1: Firstly lift or remove any clothing.
Step 2: Use your fingers and thumbs to find the top of your hips, the easiest way is to lightly push from the outside of each side, and then using your fingers in the same way to locate the base of your rib cage. Your waist is the soft, non boney, fleshey area between your hips and rib cage.
Step 3: While standing, place a tape measure around this soft fleshey area on or just above your navel and take the measurement. Do not breath in and hold your breath when measuring. The tape measure should be parallel to the floor and should not be pulled tight so as to dig into your waist as this will give you an inaccurate measurment.
Step 4: Now that you know exactly how to locate and measure your waist repeat step 3 over your clothing if you are going to wear your support outside your clothes.
What size do I order?
We display a size guide alongside each product that we sell. When ordering items which can be worn either under or over your clothing, for example a back support, take care to measure your waist accurately and over a typical layer of clothing if you are going to wear your support in this way. Many of our customers do wear their back support over clothing when at work for ease of use.

How to care for my Joya Shoes
Care & Use Guidelines for Joya Shoes
Joya footwear is a high-quality product built with leading internationally patented Joya Sole Technology, developed in Switzerland. To experience the most fulfilling and long-lasting use of your Joya footwear, we ask you to carefully read the following care and use guidelines:
Advice Regarding Leather
Joya footwear is made of extremely high-quality natural leather that requires reasonable care; sensitivity to water and scratching are a part of its natural attributes. For best results apply suitable leather treatment products to your Joya footwear. Note that as with all leathers its color may fade and that slight variations in its color are not uncommon. Occasionally synthetic leather is also utilized in some Joya footwear products.
The midsole of Joya footwear is encapsulated by a ½ millimeter thick protective film layer. This extremely thin and highly elastic protective film layer surrounds the delicate soft-elastic midsole, thus giving Joya footwear its unique active comfort feature. Pay attention not to mechanically damage this protective film layer. The sole of the footwear is very flexible and hard wearing. It will take at least four million steps before the high tech material wears out -- this equates to approximately two years of use, but may vary slightly from individual to individual (based on user weight and on which surfaces used). With time and use the body will become increasingly more accustom to Joya footwear and to its unique active comfort feature.
Advice Regarding Use
Joya footwear is not a substitute for daily exercise. If you intend on using Joya footwear as part of your exercise and well-being program, we advise that for best results you consult a fitness or medical professional such as a personal trainer, physical therapist or physician. If you intend on using Joya footwear as means of helping treat pain, known ailments and/or problems with your feet, ankles, legs, joints, back etc. we advise that for best results you consult your Doctor.
