Skins Size Guide

SKINS don't believe in a 'one size fits all' approach. If compression is too tight, it can restrict blood flow and if it's too loose - then there's not much point wearing it. SKINS take garment fitting seriously to make sure you get all the benefits of precise compression in the most comfortable product possible.

SKINS sizing is calculated using a combination of height, weight and circumference (chest, calfs, biceps). To find your ideal fit; find the product type in the table below, take the necessary measurements and look up your perfect size in the table.

Bordering Two sizes?

If you end up falling on the borderline between two sizes we recommend choosing the smaller size for tights but the larger size for tops. If you need further guidance in selecting the right size, get in touch with our customer service team – they’ll be happy to help you out.
