How do I measure?
Why can't I find your size guide?
Each product has its own specific size chart on the product detail page. Please see the following links for a particular product’s size chart:
Why do you recommend I measure myself before purchasing?
While Urbody underwear and activewear can be worn by anyone, it is designed specifically with the needs of trans, non-binary, and gender non-conforming people in mind. All products were developed using fit models that are members of the communities we aim to serve. We understand that each person’s body is different and it’s not always easy to know your correct size. This is why we recommend you measure yourself before selecting your size or you may reach out to us if you have any questions. Size charts are located on each product page.
How do I measure myself?
Please carefully read the size chart for the product you are purchasing. You can use a piece of string or flexible tape measure to measure the area specified on the size chart. Make sure the item used for measuring are pressed firmly against the body. Size charts with measurements in inches are located on each product page. Hip refers to the widest part of your body. Waist refers to the narrowest part, often just above the belly button.
What if my measurements don’t align with just one size?
This is very common! If your measurements fall in between sizes, we typically recommend you size up to ensure optimal comfort. That said, if you are looking for a tighter fit with more compression, you can consider the smaller option.
Should I buy a size smaller than I am if I want more compression?
Do not buy a smaller size than what is indicated by your measurements! Trying on activewear and underwear that is too small can stretch and damage the garments, making them ineligible for returns. If you have questions about your measurements or how to select the size best for you, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Who are our styles designed for?
Urbody underwear and activewear can be worn by anyone, however, our collections are designed specifically to address the expressed needs of trans, non-binary, and gender non-conforming people. All of our styles are infused with community feedback and were developed using fit specialists who are members of the communities we aim to serve.
Is my purchase fitting correctly?
All Urbody garments should be comfortable. Each product in the collection should fit snugly while providing security and freedom for movement. Those who have not worn compression fabrics may need time to get used to the feel. If you have purchased a compression top and experience any pain or trouble breathing, take it off immediately. Urbody Compression Tops should be relatively easy to put on and take off, as compared to other commercial compression bras and chest binders. Indications that your compression top might be too small, include difficulty putting it on or taking it off, restricted breathing, or skin irritation. Signs that your compression top may be too large, include loose shoulder straps or gaps between the body and compression garment.

Are Urbody products fit-tested?
All Urbody items are tested extensively prior to production. Garments are fit-tested by community members representing a wide range of self-expression and body types.
Can I tuck in Urbody underwear?
Urbody underwear is made from high-quality compression fabrics with a naturally smoothing effect. Most of our underwear styles (excluding the gaff) are designed to be versatile and can accommodate tucking or no tucking, whichever feels right for you. For those who want an ultra-smooth or completely flat bikini area, try out our new gaff, currently on preorder.
Tucking describes the act of putting one’s genitals between one’s legs to remove them from sight and create a smooth bikini area. Many of the garments made by Urbody can be used for tucking. If you are interested in learning more about how to tuck and tucking safety, please refer to the below medically reviewed resources:
Can I exercise in my Urbody products?
Most Urbody items are safe to wear during exercise and physical activity. To become fully informed about the benefits and risks, we recommend speaking with a licensed medical professional before exercising regularly while tucking or wearing our gaff. If you ever experience significant discomfort or pain wearing Urbody while exercising, give your body a break. Remove the compression garment and/or stop the physical activity immediately.
