Is sizing important?
The braces we sell online are all Multi-fit, which is 40 - 46" (100-115 cm), so can be adjusted with the levers by approximately 6" (15cm). Please note your brace size is more to do with how high the waistband of your trousers comes up, rather than your overall height. If taking a measurement, measure from buttonhole to buttonhole (waistband to waistband) over the shoulder, on the same side. Please email if you require any further assistance.
