WaterGym Belt - Sizes
To determine your size, take a CURRENT, accurate waist measurement.
Then view chart & important info below - ESPECIALLY read #1.
1. Your belts may vary slightly in the same size range? Please explain...
2. I am a MAN. Which size is best?
Exception: You might require a SMALL if your waist is 31 inches or less, if your height is 5'5 or less, or if you're quite lean. We also might have MED/LARGE belt that's on the smaller side that we can custom pick for you at no extra charge. Please call to discuss. MEN: PLEASE MEASURE YOUR WAIST WITH A TAPE MEASURE BEFORE CALLING. Your "pant size" is NOT your waist measurement and can be flattering by up to 4 or 5 inches. Seriously! We chuckle every time...
3. I am a WOMEN with waist sizes of 31" or less. Which size is best?
4. I am a WOMEN with waist sizes of 32" or more. Which size is best?
To see approximately where the blue foam will end around your waistline with our sizes, wrap a tape measure around your waist and measure to 28" for our small and 33" for our MED/LARGE belt.
Our X-LARGE belt is mostly for men because it is much wider and thicker, so we don't usually suggest it for women, however some women prefer it. If so, you can measure 34" but also measure 7 inches for the width because it is MUCH wider. PLEASE call if you need help!
Choose the SMALL if you:
- Are comfortable in the deep end of your pool without any flotation at all.
- Don't care how far the foam wraps around your waist. It does NOT have to go all the way around. We have gals with 45-50 inch waistlines who prefer minimal foam and wear the small.
- Prefer LESS foam and bulk, and want a more streamlined look and feel around your waist.
- Don't need a lot of foam to float you. About 85% of our female customers float very well with the small belt.
- You like the feeling of freedom!
Choose the MED / LARGE if you:
- Are NOT comfortable in the deep end of your pool without any belt at all.
- Like the feeling of having the foam wrap as far around your waist as possible.
- Prefer MORE foam and the greater sense of security it provides.
- Want to ride higher in the water.
- Are a “sinker” (athletic, lean, not much body fat) & need extra flotation.
5. My waist is over 50 inches.
6. How can I get a belt EXACTLY the same size as the one I already have?
1. Laying it on a flat table, face down with the WHITE LOGO SIDE DOWN. Measure inside of belt.
2. Stretch it fully flat. Measure the full length (end to end) and width.
3. Call us with your measurements: 1-888-928-3749.
7. Is there a "weight limit" to the WaterGym® Belt?
- "sinker" (higher ratio of lean mass to body fat- requiring more flotation)
- "floater" (higher ratio of body fat to lean mass- requiring less flotation)
- “neutrally buoyant” (balanced)
