Our Sizing Tips
- Should your measurements fall between two sizes, we recommend choosing the larger size for comfort, or the smaller size for firmer compression
- The brace is meant to be compressive, and so will feel tight as a result; if you would prefer less tightness, please choose a larger size
- If you do not own a flexible tape measure, take your measurements with a piece of string, then measure the string with a ruler
- Please take into account any swelling before you buy this brace, as you may need a larger size
