Measuring

Finding the best size for Wyred Slave products is easy, use the following steps to accurately measure to find the ideal size for your product. All products are sized on the internal circumference, so an accurate reading is necessary.

Measuring Collars

To ensure the correct size for any of our products, we strongly recommend the purchase of a tailors measure. This gives the closest accurate reading and the small cost reduces any sizing problems on your lifelong collar.

Wrap the tape snug around the narrowest part of the neck. With the tape fairly tight around the neck, make a note of the measurement.

If the measured size is under 15 inches (38cm) add half an inch (1cm). If the measurement is over 15 inches (38cm) add an inch (2cm). Use this sum to select the correct size to order. We aim to make the collars as close to your specified size as possible. Please resist the temptation to request your collar larger than this, we strongly advise you to aim for a snug fit. A loose steel collar does not drape like a chain and may not sit right if too large.

Please note that collars are only available up to a neck size of 20”, please contact us to discuss other sizes, we’d be happy to help.

Measuring Cuffs

To ensure the correct size for any of our products, we strongly recommend the purchase of a tailors measure. This gives the closest accurate reading and the small cost reduces any sizing problems on your lifelong collar.

Measuring cuffs requires two measurements. Firstly, measure the distance around the wrist at the narrowest point. Keep the tape tight, but not enough to impede movement. Secondly, measure the slip size of your hand, by placing the thumb over you littlest finger, then measuring across the base of the thumb.

So long as the cuff is between these two measurements, the cuff will work. Decide how snug you want the cuff to be, we recommend adding just a quarter inch to your actual wrist size, as this allows a comfortable cuff with full hand movement. If you cannot find the exact size required in the drop down menu please select bespoke and add the actual measurement in the info field in the cart.

Please note, that cuffs can only be offered in sizes between 6 and 11 inches. Please contact us to discuss other sizes, we’d be happy to help.

Measuring Anklets

To ensure the correct size for any of our products, we strongly recommend the purchase of a tailors measure. This gives the closest accurate reading and the small cost reduces any sizing problems on your lifelong collar.

Measuring anklets requires two measurements. Firstly, measure the distance around the anklet at the narrowest point. Keep the tape tight, but not enough to impede movement. Keep the foot flat on the floor and measure standing. Or, if the cuff is only going to be worn with certain footware, make sure it is being worn during the measuring. Secondly, measure the slip size of your foot, measure around the heel to find the thickest size.

Measuring Belts

To ensure the correct size for any of our products, we strongly recommend the purchase of a tailors measure. This gives the closest accurate reading and the small cost reduces any sizing problems on your lifelong collar.

Waists are generally easier to compress than any other part of your body, so a snug fit is more comfortable. We recommend measuring the bare waist and if looking for a tight fit then remove an inch, or whatever is comfortable.

For measuring corsets, measure the waist when corseted. We recommend not making the belt for a corset lock tighter than the corset itself.
