    I’d think the XL size would best suit your frame. I hope this helps and congratulations!!

    Hi I know you usually don’t recommend size XS, but I was wondering if you thought it might be suitable for me or if I should still get S:

    A) Pre-pregnancy weight & height. 97lbs 5’3″
    B) Pre-pregnancy clothing size. 00-0
    C) How far along are you? 37 weeks
    D) Pregnant with 1 or more babies? What # pregnancy is this for you? 1 baby, 1st pregnancy
    E) You pre-pregnancy waistline at it’s smallest part. The natural waistline. I think 24 inches
    F ) Clothing size. I’m still wearing mostly pre pregnancy clothes.
    G) Weight and waistline measurement at the current time. 120lbs, waist is 31in, belly 36 in

    Thanks!

    I think the small would fit you, especially with the second row of adjusters, though you are tiny enough that you likely could fit into the xs at 24 in with your height/weight. But since at 26 I still fit into my small on the furthest row…I think small would be fine in the postpartum period for you where I would expect you to be >26 inches to start, but the decision is up to you. You may be small enough to pull it off. I can’t get it on myself now still though. That is why I warn. Thanks and congrats!

  4. Twinpossible

    PS- If anyone were to fit into the xs it would have to be you though. And being your 1st pregnancy you should go down pretty fast. You are doing awesome with the weight! Thanks and congrats!

    Hi,
    I am looking to get the squeem firm compression vest and not sure what size to purchase. I am thinking a small…? If you could help me find a size that would be wonderful.
    Also, I heard squeem changed their original material that was once used for these garments and ppl are not as satisfied with the product. Have you heard anything about this change?

    I am 35 weeks pregnant
    pre pregnancy waist 26″
    pre pregnancy weight 123lbs,
    Height is 5’5-5’6
    Pre pregnancy size 26/27 (sz 4)
    s/m top. (I have big boobies naturally 34DD)
    1st baby
    current weight 160lbs
    current waist 39 from back to belly button
    Size M maternity legging, and L top
    I would also like to get a compression garment for my hips and thighs. Can you recommend anything that is like the squeem that provides firm compression in those areas?
    Thanks in advance :)
    Jackie

    Hi Jackie, you sound like a size small, as you are extremely comparable to me. No. I haven’t heard of any change in the materials (and I most definitely would have). I talk to Squeem several times a week. It’s a cotton/rubber blend garment. I’ve had zero complaints in the past or the present with the quality of the garment at all. I have only heard praises, and the only questions I get are about sizing and about binding in general, so I never heard of that at all. Perhaps, they are knock offs being sold by unauthorized resellers that people are complaining about. I can’t say for certain, I just know if you see these cheaper than on here..no good, because it is impossible for them to sell AUTHENTIC Squeem garments any lower. They cannot be authroized resellers, and it may very well not be a legit product.

    And as far as ‘other garments’, I do sell all Squeem garments, even those not yet listed on my page. There was trouble with the HTML aspect, getting them into my store for some reason, and I’m adding a new store next week. It has more items in it (YAY!) They do offer other compression garments as well, if you are looking for thigh and hip compression. If you search online, meanwhile, and see anything from Squeem you like in that arena, I can get you the price for it and you can buy it through me and combine your purchase. Another popular compression brand is Spanx. I have no personal experience with these, but I hear they are great for that to.

    I hope this helps!!!
    xoxo

  9. Pre pregnancy 118lbs
    5’9″
    32/23/35 (measurements before pregnancy)

    Size 4 jeans and XS top usually. In maternity I wear a small.

    I’m all belly and haven’t gained anywhere but my belly.

  10. Twinpossible

    Hi there. Right now I am 118 and 5’6”. I’m a 26 in waist at the moment. My small still fits snug on the looser row of adjuster due to the flex technology (AKA the magical liquid skin like fabric.) It does have two rows of adjusters if you wish to size down to what should be considered more of the XS size. The XS I have here and it is in a word quite freakishly small, even though your size 23” frame screams out for the XS model, being that it just seems so tiny, I would wanna make sure your garment would fit you straight off of the bat after delivery, so I would likely say go with the small, as I have never heard of a garment being too loose only the opposite. The choice would be yours. If the XS were to fit anybody, it should be you, but it’s really hard to tell just based on what I know from the size XS as I have one here and it’s just so tiny. I even tried it on my skinny 8 year old with a slimmer waist then my 4 year old twins. She only had a couple of inches to go and it did stay up. I wear size 1-3 jeans. SOMETIMES 0, but not so much. That can be due to small hips so. So the choice is ultimately yours. I think either way you’d be OK, just right off the bat, especially being all belly, it makes me wonder if it will work ASAP.

    Thanks… I hope this helps!!

    Hello, Please help me find my size.
    A) Pre-pregnancy weight & height. 139lbs, 5’4″

    B) Pre-pregnancy clothing size. S/M, Size 4/6

    C) How far along are you? 40 Weeks

    D) Pregnant with 1 or more babies? What # pregnancy is this for you? 1 baby and 2nd pregnancy. Note* 1st pregnancy was 19 years ago.

    E) You pre-pregnancy waistline at it’s smallest part. The natural waistline. Unsure, maybe 30″

    F ) Clothing size. Maternity Medium

    G) Weight and waistline measurement at the current time. 178lbs, 44″

  12. Twinpossible

    Based on the information provided, I would recommend a size medium. Since you are delivering any day you could wait and measure straight after the birth and order, but if you don’t want to, that would be my opinion based on what you have written above.

    Thanks!

  13. Megan

    A) Pre-pregnancy weight & height. 5’3″ between 125-130(I have a lot of muscle mass, I had a very defined stomach after both of my last prgenancies)

    B) Pre-pregnancy clothing size. Usually a 2 in woman’s- sometimes a 3/4 in juniors.

    C) How far along are you? 39 weeks

    D) Pregnant with 1 or more babies? What # pregnancy is this for you? 1 baby- third pregnancy but got back down to pre-pregnancy size both times in less than 8 weeks.

    E) You pre-pregnancy waistline at it’s smallest part. The natural waistline. I think a 26?

    F ) Clothing size. Jeans- 2-4 tops- small. Mostly smalls in maternity clothes but a few xs

    G) Weight and waistline measurement at the current time. I don’t know my weight, I’s guessing about 155 because last time I went to dr I had gained 26 pounds.

  14. Twinpossible

    I would recommend size small to you. Congrats on your baby to be :) .

    Sincerely,
    Shelly

    Pre pregnancy weight : 125 pounds don’t know my pre pregnancy waistline
    Pre pregnancy clothing size : size 4 /5
    I’m in 36 week of pregnancy with my first child
    My current weight is 165 pounds and my waist is measuring at 39 inches.

  18. Twinpossible

    Probably a medium, based on how I still fit in my small. We are the same height, but I am 15 lbs. lighter and was even a couple more lbs. lighter (still fit nice size small) and at a 26 in. natural waist right now. You are close to the border in my mind of a small vs. medium, could you measure around the larger part of the belly, like around the button, and I’ll check mine to. Then I will be able to tell better since you are postpartum by having those two measurements. Plus, what is your clothing size and pant size in letters and numbers. I like to be thorough. You certainly are a small girl, but when in doubt I usually advise to go up because you can’t make these any larger, but the liquid skin fit shrinks down along with you. They are slightly small. Thanks so much.

  19. Twinpossible

    What is your normal body shape? Hourglass, pear, apple, etc.? Meaning..do you normally have a thinner natural waistline since you do not know the measurement, or are more up and down, or apple in shape? Sorry, without a waistline I can only try and get a visual. Also what is your height, as I see your weight. Size in juniors jeans if you know. A 5 I am guessing and a 4 in misses? The 1st pregnancy typically goes in your favor, I gained the most weight with my first, but lost it pretty darn fast. It was surprising. Thanks, any info. you can give helps.

    Also clothing size typically on bottoms most especially in numbers. Are you more of a xs, sm, med, large?? Sometimes 1 size up than your pre-preggo clothing size works well in size judging, but I still like to get the most info., as the smaller sized models are tricky, and you want to fit into it right from the start.

    Thanks,
    Shelly

    I am more of pear shaped smaller waist than my trunk I am 5’3 before pregnancy I usually size small top size 4 or 5 jeans

  21. Twinpossible

    W/O the waist measurement, I would say you should be a small based on the other info. provided. If your belly protrudes outward like mine did of course after twins, I had to lie down to fasten my Squeem for a short while because of the large bulge. There was zero discomfort when getting up, standing, bending, picking up babies, sleeping, etc. I just needed to do this for a short while in my own small until I was able to stand up and secure it w/o any help. This isn’t abnormal, especially right off the bat and with diastasis recti or a mummy tummy it may be mandatory, but as you shrink down this becomes obsolete and you should never ever feel uncomfortable. That is one of the perks of the Squeem. Comfort, a liquid skin fit that moves along with your body and your curves, and results! You will see them quickly, and it only gets better and better. It conceals as it heals unlike Spanx and other products on the market that cannot be worn seamlessly under clothing and/or just hide the situation. It’s a wonderful garment.

    Thanks so much!

    Hello!!!! I am due in three weeks !! and I’m freaking out over how much I have gained! I know I am deff going to have a lot of flab/skin and I was looking to buy this product however everyone seems to have a problem with the sizing so I figured I would ask you!

    A) Pre-pregnancy weight & height. 130 lbs 5.1′

    B) Pre-pregnancy clothing size. about a 6

    C) How far along are you? 36 weeks

    D) Pregnant with 1 or more babies? What # pregnancy is this for you? 1 baby, 1st pregnancy

    E) You pre-pregnancy waistline at it’s smallest part. The natural waistline. 26 / 28 i think

    F ) Clothing size. I’m at about a large mat. clothes – but i outgrew everything so fast I mostly wear XL yoga shorts now with size large mat. shirts

    G) Weight and waistline measurement at the current time. 200 lbs!! (can you believe it -.- ) not sure about the waist line but man I’m huge !!!

    Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!

  23. Twinpossible

    You are particularly tricky due to the large amount of weight and inches gain. I think it would be best to wait until immediately postpartum and measure yourself, send me your stats at that point and then I can have one shipped right to you from the Squeem company. Those few extra days will NOT in any way hinder your process. I mean your waistline (past) is a small, (you don’t seem very certain about it though), but your height/weight/ clothing size would be more like a borderline medium when comparing you to myself, so I wouldn’t feel comfortable to size you up so to speak, based on that and the fact that like you said you gained a lot and are ‘huge’ (at least you feel that way, lol…I’m sure you look great). It’s going to be hard to predict how you will be right off the bat, but I will be here for you when you are ready. I will best be able to help you after delivery in this instance. I would rather not try and take an educated guess on this one, but do write me after the birth, OK?

    Thanks!!

    Shelly

    PS- Hang in there, and don’t worry too much about the weight right now. I gained the most with my 1st and lost it the fastest… go figure!! It tends to happen that way. Most of my friends gained the most with #1.. even more than twins, which seems crazy, but it happens.
