How to Measure/Sizing
Most people use the Sizing Guide to find the proper size based on height and weight. However, if you prefer to find your exact waist size or the size of someone you care for, follow these simple steps.
For someone standing:
Use a tape to measure the hips or waist, whichever is largest. Place the tape measure snugly, but not tightly, around the largest area.
For someone sitting or lying down:
Place the tape measure from hip bone to hip bone, multiply by 2, and add 2 inches. For example, someone who measures 18 inches from hip bone to hip bone would have a 38-inch waist: 18″ x 2 = 36″ + 2″ = 38″.
Take the “Would You Wear It" Test
If you’re measuring as a caretaker, take a look at the product once it’s being worn and answer the following questions. Then decide whether this is the right size:
- How does it fit in the legs?
- How much overlap is there on each side?
- Does it look like a pair of underwear?
- Is it too loose?
- Is it too tight?
- Does it shift or bunch up?
Remember that bigger is not always better. When it comes to adult incontinence products, better fit = better containment and better comfort.
