Sizing Guide for measuring your Holdup Suspenders
No matter what they say, SIZE MATTERS! Men's womans and kids Suspenders vary in total length size. Just remember sizing your suspenders is not precise, due to the amount of elasticity in out USA made strapping material, adjustment capacity, and individual body shape, length and girth, whether buying pants from a catalog or suspenders online! Using our Holdup Brand suspender size guidelines, you'll make your "best guesstimate". Holdup Suspender Company recommends, if possible, the actual measuring method be used rather than guessing by height for suspenders. OUR SUSPENDER SIZES ARE THE LENGTH OF THE SUSPENDER (IN INCHES), FULLY LET OUT.
ACTUAL MEASURING METHOD (recommended when buying Leather Suspenders or Child's Suspender, especially): Measure the distance from side-back waistline of pants for X-back, center-back waistline for Y-back, diagonally over the shoulder, to front waistline. Consider adjustment room: you want to order the size closest to your measurement, and if you like a lot of adjustment the next larger size might be your best choice. The number measurement (e.g. 32" 42", standard size 48", or XL length 54", etc) is the length of the Holdup model suspender fully let out. Use the metal length adjuster to make shorter. We can't guarantee fit, of course, any more than Macy's or Walmart can guarantee that a particular size will fit even if your measurements suggest it will. We make the best recommendation we can without your having tried them on.
HEIGHT "GUESSTIMATE" METHOD if you're unable to measure: (suspender sizing is very flexible)
