Your Ultimate Guide to Taking Accurate Measurements

Your Ultimate Guide to Taking Accurate Measurements

Please see our measurement chart table to select the correct size, if you’re unsure please contact us.

For your custom-made Stage 2 Faja our recommendation is that you measure yourself after your surgical procedure to ensure the best possible fit. We recommend measuring at 4 or 5 days post op, after your massage if possible. If you need any assistance with measuring or need any advice please contact us by email

How do I measure myself?

You’ll need a tape measure and a pen. In order to obtain the best-fitting garment, resist the urge to flex, adjust your posture, or suck in your stomach. It is best to be measured without any clothing and first thing in the morning.

We recommend standing sideways towards a mirror in order to see that the tape measure is level and at the correct position for the measurement. The tape measure should not dig into the skin and should not be loose or slide down.  Please see our measurement instructions.

Please follow these instructions and use the image as a guideline to take your measurements correctly

Underbust: Pass the measuring tape under the bust. 

Waist: Measure the circumference of your waist. Use the tape to circle your waist (sort of like a belt would) at your natural waistline, which is located above your belly button and below your rib cage. (If you bend to the side, the crease that forms is your natural waistline.) Don’t suck in your stomach, or you’ll get a false measurement. If you generally wear your clothes below your waist, take that measurement as well. 

Torso:  Measure from under your breast to the top of your crotch.

Hip: Measure the circumference of your hips. Start at one hip and wrap the tape measure around your rear, around the other hip, and back to where you started. Make sure the tape is over the largest part of your buttocks. Because making sure the tape is level back there can be hard, try to do it in front of a mirror.

Thigh: measure the circumference of the widest part of your thigh.
