Sizing chart is based on pre-op measurements.

Skip down to the Size Charts.

Note: 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. For accurate measurements, measure next to skin without clothing. 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.

Stage 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.

Stage 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.

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 smaller size as the second stage garments in this brand are expandable/stretchable and can shrink. If you are in between two sizes for a Stage 1 garment, then you want to also 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.

How do I estimate my measurements if I did not size myself before my surgery?

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 1-2" inches from your current measurement depending on how swollen you are. 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 are expandable/stretchable, 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. If you are considerably swollen, you can size yourself according to where you are today and then you may take off 1-2" inches from your current measurement depending on how swollen you are. 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 inch, then use the measurement of 35" (36-1=35) for your waist to determine the size of garment to select.
