Like any other garment, you need to have the right size in mind before purchasing. You want to make sure the fit is perfect for your body and overall gives you the desired look.
When the market consisted of very few bands and more classic styles many men assumed that sizing was pretty simple, but now that many new brands to choose from, athletic styles and fashion styles have surfaced. It’s safe to assume that what fits you in a classic Bike Jockstrap might not be the right size in a Cellblock 13 Jockstrap.
Generally speaking sizing varies from brand to brand and each give their measurements in Imperial sizes (inches). This is both true in how the Jockstrap will fit at your waist, but also used when it comes to the waist band its self. The waistband can range anywhere between 1” – 3” for athletic supporters, but with the increase of fashion or fetish Jockstraps, the rules can bend a little more. So make sure to do some research if you have never purchased or worn a brand before. Also keep in mind the style of waistband you enjoy wearing.
How to do it!
Essentially one designer’s small might be another’s medium. To ensure you get the correct size, use a soft tape measure and wrap once around your waist (or just below if they are a low cut) to obtain your size.
If for any reason you are not familiar with Imperial sizing or measurements, once you have your waist measured in Metric, use a conversion table to confirm your measurements. Or if you are like me, just Google the conversion to find out if it is the right fit.

Now get out there, get your proper fit, and get Jockstrapping!
