How to Measure for Knee Sleeves
We have a lot of experience personally sizing knee sleeves for folks at events so we wanted to share what we have learned with you so you can get the right size and won't have to worry about making an exchange.
Today we are going to take a look at how we measure for a knee sleeve, this method can be used for any knee sleeve that requires you to measure 15 cm down from the middle of your knee or 5 7/8 inches. The only thing you will need is a flexible tape measure that has inches or cm.

To start, measure 5 and 7/8 inches or 15 cm down from the middle of the knee cap. It’s recommend that you keep about 30 degrees of flexion in the knee. Once you determine where that is simply measure the circumference of your leg.
I measure at 14 and one half inches which puts me at the top of the medium size chart. In our experience, most folks like to size down and I actually wear a small. This is especially true when wearing the knee sleeves for a more aggressive movement than just an Olympic lift. The small is snug and there is no discomfort from being too tight.
We have also translated the standard Rehband Knee Sleeve Sizing Chart (7751) into inches so you can see it both ways.
