How do I measure my leg for a knee sleeve?  It’s easy.  Generally speaking to choose the correct size knee brace for yourself you need the circumference of your knee and/or thigh.

The circumference is the distance around your leg.  If you have a tape measure just wrap it around your knee.  Don’t squeeze it tight, your skin shouldn’t “rope” around the tape.  A little less than snug is what you’re looking for.

If you don’t have a tape measure wrap a piece of string around your knee, and then measure the string against a ruler.
