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.
