OUR BODIES ARE NOT ONE SIZE FITS ALL.

ABOUT NYSSA SIZING

Finding the right size can be challenging. Women’s clothing and undergarments in most countries don’t follow any standardized guidelines, meaning that your size in one brand could be a Medium while your size in another could be an XL. Use this guide to find out what size is right for you and take our sizing quiz for recommendations based on your height and weight.

If you’re currently anticipating sizing for postpartum recovery, things can be even more confusing. Our postpartum sizes are intended to mirror the most common maternity sizes, and our products are specially designed to change along with your ever-changing body.

Because of this design, we use grouped sizing to make the experience of finding the right size easier. If you’re in between sizes, choose the smaller size. Wear a maternity size S? Go with the XS/S. Sometimes wear a Medium and sometimes wear a Large? Choose the M/L.

Our goal is to be inclusive of all bodies in our sizing. If you don’t see your size here, or have any questions, please contact us. We would love to learn more about your needs.

If you have additional questions regarding our products or sizing, contact us via the chat bubble below!

QUICK TIPS
LONGEVITY

All of our apparel items are designed to be worn for years, including our postpartum underwear and bralette (after all, postpartum lasts a lot longer than three months!)

CARE

All of our products are machine washable and dryable. Wash without bleach and dry on low heat.

VERSATAILITY

Our wearables are fantastic on their own or perfectly paired with our ice/heat packs which are contoured to fit your body.

EXCHANGES

All bodies are different! If you don't find your perfect size, we'll exchange your product for the right fit.

HOW TO MEASURE:

THE BAND is the area below the bust where the brand of a bra sits. Please note that your 'band size' (i.e. the 38 in 38C) is not the same as the actual measurement.

THE WAIST is measured near the navel.

THE HIP is measured around the wides part of the hip and fullest part of the butt.

THE LEG is measured around the upper-most area of your thigh, underneath your butt where the leg bends from the hip.

FIT DETAILS


FourthWear Postpartum Recovery Underwear

Generally speaking, your postpartum body will be similar to your body towards the end of your second trimester.

  • Though we provide waist measurements, the waist of FourthWear Underwear is seamless and incredibly stretchy, allowing it to flex with your ever-changing body.
  • If the waist becomes too tight or too loose during your recovery, simply fold over and fit either under your stomach or around the hips.
  • The most important area to attend to while searching for the right size is your leg and butt. If you’ve taken the sizing quiz and are still unsure, consider whether or not you’re gaining weight primarily in your belly or if your hips, legs, and butt are also expanding. If this is the case, we recommend not sizing down.

FourthWear Postpartum Recovery Underwear

During postpartum, breasts change and grow daily, particularly if you're breast/chest feeding or pumping.

  • When sizing for the bralette, the most important area to attend to is the band size, or measurement under your bust. Our stretchy, soft fabric is designed to flex with your changing breasts.
  • If your cup size is DD+, you may want to consider sizing up.
  • Please note that your bralette size might be different to your underwear size.
