How to measure your body to find the ideal size?
The more accurate the measurements you take of your body, the more appropriate the faja size will be. However, many people do not know how to measure themselves, which can lead to unsatisfactory experiences.
To take your body measurements you only need a measuring tape. Once you have it, you should stand up, straight and without slouching. In turn, it is recommended to wear only underwear, since outer clothing can alter the dimensions of your body.
It is recommended that you weigh yourself in the morning on an empty stomach. When using the scale, take off shoes, clothes and anything that carries weight.
