How to Find the Best Fit
for your Pelvic Floor Support Garment
Our goal is for you to easily find the best fitting garments, so we put together the sizing guidance below and offer free shipping and returns.
We have a three step process to help you find the best fit - (1) determine your butt shape, which will help you find your Hem style - curvy or straight, (2) take your measurements, and (3) find the perfect size for your unique body.
Because sizing varies from brand to brand, we recommend you take your measurements and use our style and size charts to find the best fit for you. We are happy to help if you have any questions or aren’t sure which style or size will work the best.
Step 1 - Figure out which Hem style works best for you - Curvy or Straight?
A one-style-fits-all approach does not work, especially when it comes to pelvic floor support garments. Your body and butt shape play an important role in how clothing fits you and works with your body. Knowing your butt shape can help you find an even better fit with Hem Support Wear. If you aren't sure which butt shape you have check out our butt shape guide.
We use the following butt shapes to guide our fit.
Grab a measuring tape and follow along. If you don’t have a measuring tape, you can use string, dental floss, or anything that will easily wrap around your body to mark the length and then use a ruler or piece of printer paper to measure the length of the string (or other item used to measure).
A couple of tips to get the best results:
- Wear slim fitting clothes or get undressed to get the most accurate measurement.
- Take more than one measurement and go with the widest.
- Make sure the measuring tape is straight and parallel to the floor.
To measure your waist, find the smallest / narrowest part of your torso, which is usually somewhere between your belly button and rib cage. Be sure to stand up straight but slightly relaxed.
To measure the higher part of your hip, stand with your feet together and measure around your hips 6 inches up from the bottom of your crotch.
To measure the lower part of your hip, stand with your feet together and identify the point of your hip that is level with the bottom of your crotch. Measure around your hips at this level.
Now that you know your measurements and what style may fit you best, take a look at the curvy and straight sizes chart to see where you land. Round down to the nearest number.
If your measurements fall into multiple sizes, go with the size for your High Hip measurement. If your High Hip measurement is on the border between two sizes, go with the size that most of your measurements are in.

The right fit is important, and we're here to help!
Properly fitting garments are essential to providing the support you need. If the garment is too loose, it may not provide enough support. If the garment is too tight, it can put too much pressure on your body, which is counterproductive when you are managing pressure against your pelvic floor. A good test when you are wearing the garment is to make sure that your abdomen and rib cage can move freely when breathing and bending over. If it is too tight, size up.
