Measurement Guidelines - Men & Women Specifications

Our compression garments are designed for a snug fit. Optimal compression, support and comfort require accurate measurements. DMI has an extensive size range of XS through 4XL for most styles to ensure that you find the ideal size. Remember that all measurements should be taken pre-operatively.

Measurement Guidelines - Female

In order to help us get the best possible fit for the garment, please take the following measurements while standing. Please take the measurements in inches and measure as indicated below.

Breast: Around the body across the fuller part of the bust (while wearing a bra)
Contour: Around the chest, under the breast area, with bra on.
Waist (Natural): Around the body where the natural waist is located. When bending to the side, where the body bends
Waist (at Belly Button): Around the body going across the belly button.
Hips: Around fuller part of buttocks and lining up in front with the crease at the top of the leg ("panty line") so tape comes to top of pubic area.
Thigh: Taken around fullest part of upper thigh, parallel to the floor. Take measurements on each leg.
Biceps: Taken across the fullest part of the biceps. Take measurements on each arm. Arms should hang relaxed at your sides.
Torso: In cases where a patient is shorter or taller than the average person, a torso measurement needs to be taken. Please measure from the bottom of the sternum to the top of the pubic bone. The sternum is the bottom edge where the ribs form an upside down V. It is near the bottom of the bra. The usual measurement is 12-14 inches for women. For this measurement, it is more accurate if taken while lying down so that the stomach flattens.

NOTE:
To ensure a proper fit, please have someone other than the patient take the measurements using a flexible cloth measuring tape. Hold the tape level and snug but do not allow it to “dig” into the skin. We recommend taking the measurements with patient in panties and bra (avoiding bulky clothing). The feet should be 2-3” apart and arms relaxed at the side.

Measurement Guidelines - Male

In order to help us get the best possible fit for the garment, please take the following measurements. Please take the measurements in inches and measure as indicated below.

Chest: With arms relaxed at sides, measure around the chest going across the nipples and under the arm pits.
Waist: Measure around the body going across the belly button.
Hips: Measure around the fullest part of the lower buttocks so when the tape comes around to the front it is just above the pubic area.

NOTE: To ensure a proper fit, please have someone else take your measurements and avoid wearing bulky clothes. Your feet should be 2-3" apart and your arms should be relaxed at your sides. We recommend the use of a flexible cloth measuring tape. Hold the tape level and snug but do not allow it to "dig" into your skin. Call a DMI Representative today for your custom needs.
