Ordered a medium based on my measurements and using the expert level column. I’m 17 days post-op from lipo and skin removal (alternative tummy tuck). At first I could not get the hooks on so I thought I made a mistake purchasing the med. Next day tried again and was successful.
TIP: Make sure to get it COMPLETELY over your butt and hips. Laying down made it easier to attach hooks. I really like the high compression for my post-op needs however, it’s uncomfortable a bit when sitting down or bending. I know I’ll get used to it once I’ve broken the garment in a bit more. The silicone band on the thighs is really great so no rolling there. For reference I’m 5’3” 173lbs natural hour glass figure. Washed on hand and left to hang dry and garment held up well.
I was experiencing an immense amount of swelling so I went up a size. I should have followed the guide because now it is far too big and not compressing me enough to help- totally my own fault. These garments are TOP TIER. I gave 3 stars because of the ZIPPER. It is far too short. I have 3 in 3 different sizes and they all have one common flaw . . . the zipper. Two more inches and we would have THE PERFECT CONSTRUCTION. I will pay extra for more zipper . Update: I measured myself and actually need the XXL - which I purchased. I still had the issue with the zipper BUT these are such good compression garments!!! I put in a 13inch zipper and ALL IS WELL. 5 stars because you cannot beat the price for such high quality.
I am 5’5”, 150lbs and I got the size M. When I first opened it I thought maybe I bought too small of a size but after getting it on, it felt great! Fitted, supportive and smoothing! Looks really good! Happy with my purchase! Great fabric, compression is perfect and it gives me a true hourglass shape!
Absolutely love my faja bought this after getting a bbl unsure on exact size so I tried a large first couldn't get it up my thigh and I'm 5'6 155 so I sent back and ordered a size smaller than my stage 1 which was a size 3XL the 2XL actually fits better than the stage 2 I bought from my surgery place I ended up buying 3 total and will get them tailored as my waist gets smaller
This is my second faja, I am 5'2 167 lbs. 32 in. And it stated I should order an xl. I went against it and order a large and it fits with a little room. I just dislike the strap across my chest.
