First and foremost, we recommend following the size charts for all of our products! To ensure the best fit actually measure yourself rather then guessing or assuming old measurements. Despite what many would think, a smaller size will not provide stronger compression, and will actually compromise the fit of the product. When a product is too small it will often create bulges, ride up, or even roll down creating an uncomfortable experience. If any of those things are happening be sure you are in the correct size!
If you are looking for more compression, increase the compression level rather then decreasing the size! We offer 3 levels of compression. Our highest level of compression is level 3, "sculpt". You may filter our products by compression level on the website to easily see your options in each level offered.
