    Measuring Instructions

    To find out which size belt you wear, simply follow these guidelines:

    1. First, decide whether you will be wearing the belt at your waist or on your hips (lower rise). This will affect the fit of the belt.

    2. For waist belts, measure around your natural waistline (just at the belly button). This is usually the smallest part of your torso.

    3. For hip belts, measure around the fuller part of your hips (not the fullest), where your low-rise jeans would fall. Note: Hip belts are carried in larger sizes so they can be worn on the hips.

    4. The measurement that you get is your belt size (in inches or centimeters). Note: See our size guide above for inch and centimeter equivalencies.

    5. The size of a belt indicates the measurement from the buckle prong (or other method of closure) to the middle hole of the belt.

    Find the right style for you

    Need to be in control? Footless Pantyhose.

    Think of these as your saving grace during sandal season. They give you all the firming action of control top support hose, not to mention elastic-free bands that guard against annoying skin impressions.

    Want to put the squeeze on something? Slim-Cognito Body Shapers.

    The suffocating girdles of yore have thankfully been replaced by these less constricting body shapers. Created with double layers of cool, soft fabric, they gently slim the tummy, hips, thighs, and rear, so there's no waiting to exhale.

    Feeling a little overexposed? Power Panties.

    Sometimes you want more coverage than floss-like thongs can provide (especially with full skirts or pencil-thin pants), which is why these undies are so special. They keep you covered without causing panty lines and create a firmer bottom and flatter tummy—no strings attached.

    Wish you could give your slip the slip? Hide and Sleek.

    These new sleek undergarments, which range from strapless camisoles to full and half slips-conceal lines, slim figures, and prevent clothes from twisting and turning. What's more, the built-in compression starts below the bra line, so there's no forsaking that va-va-voom cleavage.

    Bust:  Measure around your body across the fullest part of the bust.

    Waist:  Measure around your waist, where the top of a skirt or pants normally rests. Keep a finger between your body and the measuring tape for accurate fit.

    Hip:  Stand with your heels together and measure around the fullest part of your hips.
