Torso Size

To find the correct torso size, it is best to measure your torso length. The measurement will be most accurate using a flexible measuring tape and a friend to help. Measure torso length vertically from C7 vertebrae (the bump at the base of your neck) to the spot on your spine that is level with the iliac crest (top of hipbone). Try to keep your back comfortably straight while the measurement is taken.
