HOW TO MEASURE?

How to measure? First find a willing helper to assist you, then take a flexible tape measure or bit of string and place it on your C7 vertebrae (this is the one that sticks out when you bend your neck forward), now place your hands on the top of your hips and point your thumbs horizontally towards your spine, this is your iliac crest. Measure from the C7, following the curve of the back, to the iliac crest. 

Once you have your measurement, select the correct size. If you are right on the gap between two sizes, pick the larger of the two - i.e. a 19 inch torso should choose a Large

Small 15-17 inches

Medium 17-19 inches

Large 19-21 inches
