Storekeepers will have the Dermawear’s Special Measuring Tape that’ll quickly measure your shape and tell the corresponding Dermawear size, quickly. This one-of-a-kind measuring tape shows your inches in the frontside and, Dermawear size marker in the back. Other brands may have their own size definitions. Some brand's medium can be the other one's small or large. You can also use any standard measuring tape and check your size and compare it with the size chart available on the product boxes. If you are too tied-up to visit a store, then visit our website and select the products you like. The measurement guideline for every product is given in the footnotes. You can use a regular inch tape at home and map the size to the Dermawear recommended size.

Thank you choosing 'Dermawear' range of slimming garments. To avoid roll up issue, requesting you to wear the garment at your low waist which should solve the roll over issue. Even if you are still facing the issue, you can go for Mini Corset 9 inch, since the garment has an attached straps to avoid roll over. Feel free to contact us on our Toll Free No.1800 1200 604.
