How many times have you heard, we are all shaped differently. This statement can not be anymore true when shopping for fajas, waist cinchers and any post-op supplies that are worn. My size 12 and your size 12 may not be carried the same. We all carry weight differently some of us carry it on our butts and hips while others on there stomach. For that reason our measurements will result differently even if we are both a "size 12". I can't stress enough how important it is to shop based off your waist and hip measurements. Invest in a tape measure it will come in handy while you're undergoing this plastic surgery journey.
