HOW TO MEASURE

  • Below we have outlined general guidelines to insure proper fit of the products you purchase from us.
    Here are some useful tips ....
  • For best fit, keep the tape measure straight but not tight, and measure over undergarments.  Same size items from different manufacturers and product lines may vary.
  • If an individual falls between sizes, order the larger size. An individual should wear the same shoes they intend to use with new garments.
  • Have the individual stand straight and relaxed when measuring.
