Braces Sizes

Trouser Braces Size Guide

Choosing the size of braces you require is not an exact science as it depends on many factors, including, your height, the fullness of your figure, your shape, the elasticity of the braces material and indeed the tension of the worn braces.

The below should be used as an approximate guide when choosing a pair of trouser braces from our range of braces for adults.

Please bear in mind;

  • We use good quality elastic, for controlled elasticity.
  • Braces sizes are generously cut.
  • All Braces can be shortened by using the slide size adjusters.

We offer braces in the following lengths. Some are available in all sizes but in some designs, we offer a more limited size selection. 

Standard Size - Braces Length up to 44 Inches Long
These are suitable for a medium build person up to Large Jacket Size or up to approximately 5ft 10 inches tall. These are the most popular size braces and will fit the “average” person.

XL Size - Extra Long Braces Length up to 48 Inches Long
These are suitable for a person up to X Large Jacket Size or up to approximately 6ft 2 inches tall.

XXL Size - Extra Extra Long Braces Length up to 52 Inches Long 
These are suitable for a person up to XX/XXX Large Jacket or a large build person and /  or over 6ft 4inches tall.

XXXL Size - Extra Extra Extra Long Braces length up to 56 Inches Long
These are suitable for a person up to 4XL jacket or over 6ft 4inches tall and of a larger build.
 
Guide On How To Measure For Trouser Braces / Suspenders:

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.
