When taking body measurements, you need to use the correct type of tape measure. You will want to use a soft cloth or flexible plastic  tape measure, similar to what a seamstress uses. Do not use a metal measuring tape, used in construction (your measurements will be inaccurate).  Pay special attention not to pull your measuring tape too tight.  Doing so will produce a measurement that is too small.

Knit-Rite Compressogrip BK Shrinker Description

Knit-Rite Compressogrip BK Prosthetic Shrinker with X-STATIC is a prosthetic shrinker designed with below-knee wearer acceptance and ease of application in mind. Its tubular shape allows BK amputees to control or vary compression for post amputation surgery edema management. Easily double the layers of the Compressogrip BK shrinker to better manage volume control. Doubling the shrinker layers will create double the compression regardless of how taut you pull the Compressogrip prosthetic shrinker. Please consult with your Prosthetist before applying more than two layers, which may exceed the desired therapeutic pressure. Controlled compression is a treatment for hypertrophic scarring along your residual limb.

The Compressogrip B/K Elastic Shrinker contains X-Static fibers to inhibit odor causing bacteria in the garment and wick moisture away from your residual limb. X-STATIC - The Silver Fiber reacts with human body chemistry and is used for its therapeutic qualities in many medical products. More than 12 years of published clinical research supports X-STATIC's safety and claims. For individuals with fuller thighs, you may want to review the Tapered Compressorip shrinker.
