We get this question very often! Which binder will be the best fit post op!
So when measuring for the abdominal binder, we suggest you follow these guidelines:
- Measure the area below the belly button and above the hips. Do not measure your waist.
- Do not use your pants size to determine sizing. Each designer seems to have a different opinion on sizing! 🙂
- Take swelling into account! If you are borderline between two sizes size up. If you are ordering an Abdominal Binder you can purchase a second one at a discount. Then you could get both and have them on hand once the swelling resides.
