The length of the braces required can be measured from the trouser waistband at the back, at the point where the braces will attach, up over the shoulder, and down to the trouser waistband at the front at the point they will attach on the front trouser waistband. (Diagonally in the case of X Shaped Braces).

If in doubt, choose a longer pair of trouser braces as they can be easily made smaller by use of the slide size adjuster, whereas a shorter pair can only be made longer by stretching the braces material uncomfortably longer.

How To Measure Yourself For Trouser Braces Or Suspenders For Mens Or Womens Trousers

So, let’s start by showing you how to measure your own body for the ever-popular Clip on Braces, and in this instance, in the X Back style.

Firstly, ensure that your trousers are sitting comfortably on your waist in the position where you would normally wear them. Take a flexible tailor’s tape. Hold the measure at the top of your trousers waistband at the back, taking it over your opposite shoulder and straight down at the front, to the top of trouser waistband.

This measurement is the length of braces that you will need.

If you don’t have a flexible tailor’s tape, a piece of string would work just as well and then measure this against a measuring tape.

It’s important to remember that braces have slide adjusters on them, they can be adjusted to make braces shorter.

With this in mind, if the measurement was 42”, you would need to order our Standard 44 inch Braces, but if the measurement was 45 Inches, you would need to order our XL 48 inch braces, and so on.

Although not strictly necessary for functionality of the braces you may wish to also consider from a fashion perspective the position of the slide adjusters, in terms of where you like to wear them.

If you measure say 44 inches and order 44-inch braces the slider adjuster will sit relatively close to your trouser waistband dependent on the elasticity of the braces, if however you would the adjusters to sit much higher on your body, then order the next size of braces up.

How To Measure Y Back Mens Braces
